Carpet steam cleaning and your lease

When it comes to finding a new place to live in the city more and more leasing contracts include carpet steam cleaning before you move in. This service is essential for cleaning the apartment between tenants and make a difference in the quality of the location.

Steam cleaning is essentially a process called pressurized hot water extraction. It uses specialized equipment to spray pressurized boiling hot water and cleaning solution on to the carpet. This step lifts and removes dirt trapped at the base of the carpet. This step essentially washes the carpet pile.

The last steps are even more important. Only professional grade steam cleaning equipment can do water extraction. Powerful vacuums remove the water and dirt from the carpet. The carpet pile is set in its original direction to allow it to dry efficiently.

With store bought steam cleaning equipment, you can't the same professional features. Most of these store bought machines don't have an extraction feature or the same power for water pressure and water temperature. These machines tend to soak carpets and cause unwanted damages.

Oversoaking the carpet is also dangerous. If the carpet can't dry efficiently black mould can grow and bacteria can proliferate in the carpet. Black mould is hazardous to your health and it may force you to replace the carpet.

Food, drink spills and dirt from heavy foot traffic are common sources of stains and dirt that accumulates. Food stands in the main lobby even have carpets for a number of reasons.

Primarily carpets have rugs to prevent slips and falls. Many restaurants incorporate carpet in their dining setting for the same reasons. On solid flooring it's easier to slip on spills and the mess needs to be cleaned right away. Drink spills on carpets as less hazardous and don't need to be cleaned right away.

5 Tips for Carpet Stair Cleaning

Stairs are an essential feature in our homes that we use every day. Main floor stairways get used more frequently than the basement steps. Both areas accumulate lots of dirt due to frequent foot traffic from pets and family members. There are simple tips and tricks for effectively cleaning carpeted steps.

Vacuum with the Right Tools
Carpeted stairs need extra care to remove sand, dirt and other debris. Wand extension pieces allow you to vacuum in small corners and near the edges of carpet runners. Brush rolls are great for removing hair and pet fur that is stuck to the carpet.

Starting at the Bottom
We may not realize it but it's easier to clean steps by starting at the bottom. This way is also safer to prevent falling down the stairs. It's also easier to see dirt and sand that needs to be removed.

Good Stairway Lighting
Many stairways don't have an adequate lighting source. Basement stairs, in particular, tend to have bad lighting which is hazardous. Setting a lamp at the top or bottom of the steps can increase visibility. Proper lighting makes it easier to see dirt and spot carpet stains.

Maintaining a Vacuuming Schedule
Your steps should be vacuumed once a week if they are located on the main levels. This removes most dirt that has accumulated during the week. Less frequently used steps such as the basement stairway should be vacuumed once a month.

Annual Carpet Wash
Your carpeted steps should be cleaned annually with a professional steam cleaner. Vivid Cleaning offers premium carpet cleaning in Markham, Vaughan, and the GTA. Get your carpeted steps cleaned when you get your regular carpets cleaned.

Eco-friendly solutions for Dresses when you have Bed Bugs

When you find out you have bed bugs and you're trying to get rid of them, you have to be thorough. This includes washing all your clothes, bedding and towels. However, many items need dry cleaning and we have large closets and may not be able to dry clean everything. Luckily there is a simple inexpensive way to treat your clothes without damaging them.

First, round up your clothes in an air tight container or in tightly closed garbage bags. The point is to keep any bugs that may be present in one location. You can now store the clothes while you get the next part set up. This involves a freezer.

Bed bugs die when they are exposed to extreme temperatures. Set an empty freezer to 0 F or -15 C. If you set the temperature colder you should do so. Place a few bags in the freezer and leave them for a minimum of 4 days. Set reminders for this so you don't forget to put the next few bags in.

Once the required time is up, remove the bags and allow the items to thaw. Put away the clothes and steam and iron the items that need it. This process can be applied for shoes and some smaller items. It will help you save on dry cleaning and is eco-friendly without the use of harsh chemicals.

3 Ways to Prevent Carpet Pile Flattening


Most of us have witnesses how sections of the carpet can become flattened over time. This happens usually to sections of the carpet where furniture is placed. The furniture doesn’t have to be heavy to cause flattening. It occurs naturally because of gravity. However, there are ways to prevent it and stop it from permanently damaging the carpet pile.

Having a shock absorbing under pad can absorb mechanical pressure cause by the weight of furniture. This type of under pad can also relieve mechanical pressure from foot traffic. This under pad keeps the carpet in place and prevents it from slipping. This ultimately prevents friction from regular use of the furniture.

Periodically rotating the furniture arrangement can prevent pile flattening. This method prevents strain from happening to only one part of the carpet. After the furniture is rearranged fluffen up the flattened pile and allow it to breathe. 

Carpet steam cleaning will revitalize the fiber. This carpet cleaning should be done annually to recondition the carpet pile. This also sets the carpet pile in its original direction and prevents permanent flattening. Carpet cleaning will recondition carpet pile and renew its tensile strength.


If your carpet isn’t cleaned annually the pile will acquire dirt residue. The pile fibers can stick together and flatten down.

These method quick and easy and come in handy when you have last minute cleaning to do and no vacuum. Your rug should still go out for annual cleaning every year. Vivid Cleaning offers premium rug cleaning for Toronto and the GTA. Get your rugs professionally clean today.

Carpeted stairs are common to most households. They give comfort by providing warmth and extra cushioning to your feet. They also damp excess noise and are an easy way to add design to this area of your home. Steps can acquire shading from dirt because they are frequently used.

Clean desk chairs improve work performance and motivation. Dirty office chairs don’t reflect well on clients, visitors and potential employees. Clean office chairs make the best impression on anyone visiting the office or place of business.

Dirt can come from a variety of sources such as food and drink. Other dirt deposits can come from sitting on the transit or our car seats. Dirt on desk chair seats can potentially transfer to clothing and coats as well.

If it’s especially long since the desk chairs have been cleaned, they may develop a smell.

5 Ingredients You can use for Eco-Friendly Cleaning

If you are phasing out chemical cleaning solutions, you should inform yourself about eco-friendly cleaning ingredients. Most are inexpensive and you can find in the grocery store. These essential ingredients will get your house cleaning done fast and safely.

Baking soda is great for deodorizing different areas of your home. It can absorb smells from the refrigerator and stoves. It can also be used to scrub grimes out of bath tubs, sinks and other surfaces. It can also be used to deodorize and clean carpets and mattresses.

Vinegar is primarily used to shine surfaces. It will help remove residue from water stains and prevent streaks. Shiny surfaces such as glass and stainless still benefit from using vinegar on them after regular cleaning. Vinegar can also be used to disinfect most areas and can be combined with baking soda while cleaning.

Lemons you can buy whole or you can by the juice sold in most supermarkets. It all depends on how fresh you want your cleaning ingredients to be and how big the cleaning job is. For smaller jobs packaged lemon juice is suggested. For larger jobs fresh lemon slices are suggested the rind helps scrub and disinfect. This cleaning ingredient can also be combined with baking soda.

Coarse salt can be used to help scrubs surfaces. This item should be used sparingly because it can leave residue if the area isn’t rinsed properly. Salt also helps disinfect surfaces and prevent pests such as mould and bacteria.

Essential oils have several eco-friendly cleaning applications. Lavender can be used to disinfect   carpets and mattresses. Pine oil can be used to prevent pests such as moths and ants from cupboards. Olive oil is suggested to oil furniture and kitchen utensils.

Vivid Cleaning offers excellent cleaning services for Toronto and the GTA. Eco-friendly cleaning options are available. Vivid Cleaning provides home cleaning as well as office cleaning service in Toronto. Make your life easier by scheduling a cleaning appointment with us today.


How to clean a bathroom sink with eco-friendly cleaning

We frequently use the bathroom sink for hand washing and personal grooming. This sink comes in contact with dirt, bacteria and potential viruses. The sink needs cleaning because it dirties fast and it can harvest harmful pests. Thankfully eco-friendly cleaning is available to help.

Start by removing all the items around the sink. Next wet the area with water. This helps loosen dirt and residue. Spray the area with vinegar and let it sit for a few minutes to disinfect the surface. Next use baking soda to scrubs and disinfect the sink and faucets.

Rinse the sink area with water. Wipe it clean with paper towel. Apply vinegar to the faucets in order to shine the stainless steel. This step also prevents water marks from appearing on the faucets and making it look dirty again.

If you don’t have vinegar, lemon juice can be used instead for cleaning. Lemon juice can be from fresh lemon slices or packaged lemon juice containers. Fresh lemon can provide additional scrubbing power needed for tough sink cleaning jobs.

Bathroom mirrors can be cleaned with vinegar as well. Using this liquid can also help defog mirrors and help disinfect as well. Just apply vinegar and use paper towel to wipe the surface clean. For stuck on residue use baking soda as well.

Studies Show that Packaged Lemon Juice cleans better than Fresh Lemons

Lemons are about of regular cleaning as well as eco-friendly cleaning. Citrus fruits help break down dirt and are anti-bacterial. They are also easy to combine with other simple ingredients like baking soda. However, its been shown that packaged lemon juice is better to use for cleaning than fresh cut lemons.

Fresh cut lemons can be used for cleaning but they come with some inconveniences. Firstly, they have a short shelf life and can’t be stored for long. They can also leave sticky residue after cleaning items such as the sink. The lemon rind and extra fiber in particular causes this inconvenience.

Fresh lemons aren’t as concentrated packaged lemon juice. This difference in pH can affect how well cleaning is done. Using a whole lemon can be beneficial because the lemon rind can provide additional scrubbing power. However, if you want to use just lemon juice you have to separate the juice from the rest of the lemon. Filtration needs to be done carefully as well.

Package lemon juice comes in good sized quantities and has a longer shelf life than fresh lemons. You can use the quantity you need and store the rest in the refrigerator. This juice tends to be more concentrated and increases a bit in acidity as it ages. This lemon juice comes ready to be used.

How to effectively manage drink spills on couch upholstery

We usually end up eating and drinking in our living rooms and accidents happen. Some drink spills can cause lasting damage. If spills aren’t handled right away, the liquid can penetrate deep within cushions and other fabric. It can also cause other problems such as attracting mould.

There are simple ways to manage drink spills as soon as they happen. First place some paper towels on a table. Take the cushion and turn it on its side over the paper towels. Let the liquid run off the cushion. Taking off the excess liquid will prevent it from penetrating further into the material.

The cushion should be stream cleaned to remove the drink liquid. Using a damp cloth will only clean the surface of the cushion and can cause the stain to spread. Steam cleaning is the only way to penetrate the couch material and remove the drink spill. Other methods won’t fully clean and the food smell will be present.

You may want to consider having your whole couch cleaned. If you can’t remember the last couch washing you may want to get it while the stain is being managed. Toronto couch cleaning services are available for all your couch cleaning needs.

Wine Stains and your carpet

Getting wine stain on your carpet can be hard to deal with. Wine has been used as a dyeing agent for hundreds of years and stains carpets badly. With lighter toned carpets the stain is more prominent and harder to get rid of. Wine stain removal depends on several factors.

The main problem with wine stains is that they are wicking stains. This means that the stain can potentially come back even after cleaning. Stain removal depends on the quantity of wine that was spilled, how fresh the stain is and the carpet material.

When the wine stain occurs it should be dabbed with dry paper towel along the edges. This removes some of the excess and limits the stained area. Other liquid agents shouldn’t be used as they could spread the stain and even make it permanent.

After attempted removal with professional carpet cleaning services the stain could potentially come back. It depends how deep the stain reached into the material. When the carpet becomes wet the wine dye will leach out once more from the carpet. The stain will then reappear.

Scotch-guarding your carpet can help protect the material from stains. It prevents the wicking agent from seeping deep into the carpet and becoming permanent. Toronto has carpet cleaning services to assist with your carpet cleaning needs.


Toronto steam cleaning experts will start by assessing the stains and all areas of the carpet. Our experts will be able to answer all your carpet cleaning questions as well. Schedule your carpet cleaning appointment with us today.        

5 Ways to Tell if your Carpet is Dirty

Carpets need care and maintenance to properly enjoy them in our home, business or office. However, it is sometimes hard to tell if your carpet is dirty for a variety of reasons. There are simple ways to tell and decide if you want to get the carpets cleaned.

Scan your carpet for shading or discolouration. Start with one section and scan for things like stains as well. Dark stains are easy to spot but water related stains aren’t as noticeable. Areas that receive a lot of foot traffic such as entrances and hallways are especially prone to shading.

It your carpet doesn’t show obvious stains or dirt it can still have a smell. Crouch down and try to notice if there are any obvious smells from dust, food or mould. Restaurants that have carpets are prone to food related pests due to contact with food.

Dirt can change the texture of the carpet. For instance there can be sticky or slippery spots of the carpet due to dirt and foot. There can be residue from items such as chewing gum, sugary drinks and general dirt residue. These can change the carpet texture.

Carpets can have sections of flattened pile. This occurs in areas with a lot of foot traffic. The carpet pile picks up dirt residue and the fibers can stick together. If this isn’t managed the pile can flattened permanently in one direction or be prone to breakage.


You can do a residue test on the carpet. Simply take a paper towel and rub it on a section of the carpet. If it comes up filmy or shady, the carpet requires cleaning.

The steps of scothguarding furniture and carpets

At some point we’ve all heard of scotchguarding and its benefits. The process essentially dirt and waterproofs the item. If you want to scotchguard it is important that you follow certain steps so the process goes smoothly.

The items should be cleaned and allowed to dirt. If you don’t clean the furniture or carpet when you apply the scotchguard solution you will be essentially locking in some dirt and dust. If the item isn’t properly dry the scotchguard solution won’t stick to the item as well and you will be locking in moisture into the material.

For carpets, it is recommended that you have the carpets steam cleaned. This carpet cleaning process gets deep within the carpet material and removes dirt at the base of the carpet. The carpet cleaning process also helps condition and protect the carpet pile.

Carpet cleaning is best left to a professional cleaning service. Store bought equipment doesn’t give a deep cleaning to carpets. At most it only provides light surface cleaning. In addition, the store bought machines do not have a vacuum for extraction. Your carpet can be become oversoaked and can potentially attract mould.

After professional carpet cleaning and after a proper drying period you should then apply the scotchguard or have the service done for you. Scotchguard can be expensive and you may want to consider applying to it hallways and entrances which get the most foot traffic.

How to Inspect Your Mattress For Bed Bugs

Bedbugs are a common problem for apartment building. This parasite comes out at night and feeds on hosts and can go undetected for months. To protect yourself and your pets it’s important to look for signs of bedbugs and routinely inspect your mattress and furniture.

The first signs show up on your bed and you may notice them when you do laundry. Check for spots of blood at the head and feet of your mattress. This can indicate the presence of these pests. Also look for small dark spots which can be caused by their waste. Sometimes you can find bugs on bed items when you do the laundry.

Inspect the mattress and the bed frame carefully. Bedbugs can fit in spaces that are the width of a credit card. They generally prefer wood and fabric materials to nest in as well. Placing bed bug detection traps can give you early detections of these bugs.

If you find any bugs in the house place them in a jar for reference. If you suspect any clothing or other items of having bed bugs they should be washed using hot water. If they can’t be washed, place them in a container. They can’t climb out of smooth surfaces.

Have your mattress cleaned and inspected once a year. Steam cleaning your mattress takes time and attention to detail. If they notice anything they can alert you to the problem when your mattress is being cleaned.

Carpets come in a variety of styles and materials and can be used for decorative purposes. Aside for weekly vacuuming your carpet needs to be cleaned with steam cleaning to give it a deep clean.

Vacuuming carpet removes dirt and debris from the material but it can’t remove everything. Stains and dirt residue clean to the carpet fibers and it can only be removed with proper carpet cleaning. There are maintenance options such as dry cleaning and foam cleaning. However professional carpet cleaning will provide the deepest cleaning possible.

Carpet cleaning does more than just remove dirt. It helps nourish and protect the carpet fibers as well. It prevents breakage and stops the pile from flattening irreversibly. Carpet cleaning renews the colours of the carpet to keep the carpet looking beautiful.

Pets and your rugs –Seasonal changes

Having a pet means extra care needs to go into maintain your rugs. With the weather warming up your pet will be shedding its winter coat and the fur will be flying around. This fur will be settling into your rugs and it’s important to know how to manage it.

Fur tends to get all fabric materials such as clothes and couches. In rug, the fur becomes tangled in the rug fibers. Vacuuming your rugs two to three times a week can help manage this mess. The brush roll setting on your vacuum is especially useful for removing fur from the rug fibers.

Aside from fur, pet dander is another common particle that settles into your rugs. Dirt from muddy paws is also a common source for dirt contaminants for your rug.  Vacuuming your rug is only one part of rug maintenance and it can’t remove everything. This is why it is important to send your rugs out to a professional rug cleaner once a year.

Professional rug cleaning Matters

When it comes to rug cleaning you may be tempted to do the job yourself. However, you may end up accidentally damaging your rug and only cleaning the surface. The cleaning quality of store bought machines is incomparable to professional rug cleaning. 

Portable rug cleaning equipment ends up mostly soaking your rug. As a result, rug dye can bleed and ruin the design. This can cause some areas to fade as well. The more damaging part is that the rug can’t dry fast and it can attract pests such as mould and bacteria. The rug doesn’t receive a deep cleaning either and most dirt is still in it.

Professionalrug cleaning experts have careful cleaning methods. Vivid Cleaning uses pH balanced cleaning solutions and softened water. The rug is then rinsed in a wringer machines. This machine deep cleans the material and gently wrings out excess water.

Rugs cleaned with the wringer are carefully placed so that their pile is in the right direction. This prevents excessive mechanical stress and helps maintain the rug pile. Store bought machines are too harsh and can end up thinning sections of your rugs.

The Best Way To Clean up Plant soil messes from Carpet

Whether a plant pot tipped over or your pet tracked in dirty paw prints you have to clean up the mess properly. You also have to consider if the soil mess is dry or wet. The overall state of your carpet should be noted as well.

Dry plant soil messes would be the easiest to clean. This can be cleaned by vacuuming the carpet and using an extension wand to reach difficult areas. For wet soil messes extras measures need to be taken. The clean up also depends on the amount of soil and how much of it is on the carpet.

Wet soil messes can occur after you’ve just watered a plant and the plant pot accidentally falls. It can also be from your pet trekking in form outside with wet dirty paws. For small messes use paper towel to gather up the soil and absorb the moisture. Next with a clean damp cloth go over the stained areas. Light stains at the surface of the carpet should come out easily.

For larger wet soil stains clean up what you can with paper towels. It’s not recommended that you clean the carpet yourself since you can accidentally spread the stain. You can also end up soaking the carpet and ending up with other complications.
