Make the Right Decision For Your Area Rugs or Carpet

July 19,2018

Here at Bonita Springs Carpet Cleaning, we know exactly the kind of care it takes to keep your area and oriental rugs in tip top shape! That’s why we always suggest relying on us to care for them; we don’t believe you’d ever regret it! So make the right decision for your cherished carpets: call in TST Total Restoration! And until we arrive, follow these guidelines!

Keep Rugs Out of Direct Sunlight

One of the most basic things you can do for your area and oriental rugs is to keep them out of direct sunlight, away from large windows that aren’t covered by blinds or drapes. The sunlight will gradually cause fading and discoloration in your rugs, which is something you definitely don’t want if it can be prevented, right?

Rotate Rugs Frequently

Next, rotate your rugs on a semi-regular basis! Move them around the house. Rotate them from where they’re currently placed. This way if sunlight is hitting them, the fading will be even and not splotchy and unsightly. It’s also good to get a new take on your living space! Wouldn't you agree? Rotate your rugs as frequently as you can and you’ll be good to go.

Vacuum Thoroughly

Finally, make sure you’re vacuuming your rugs just as frequently as your carpeting (which should be once a week, maybe more if your carpet endures heavier foot traffic)! Doing so will do wonders in keeping your area and oriental rugs clean and in good shape. It’ll also keep the dust, dirt, dander, and other allergens out of the air!

So if your carpeting is in need of a thorough cleaning or stain removal, don’t hesitate to call in Bonita Springs Carpet Cleaning! This is what we specialize in, you know! We’ll treat your rugs with the utmost, professional care possible! You know you can count on us and our brilliant results. 

Back to the Grind: Cleaning Tile and Grout

July 19, 2018

Ah, tile and grout… there’s a reason why we’re calling this “the grind.” Tile and grout aren’t easy to keep clean, but it’s definitely not impossible, either! Let’s talk about what it takes to maintain tile and grout, and how TST Total Restoration can step in and help! That’s our favorite thing to do for you Bonita Springs , fans anyway: help.

Method #1: Sweeping & Mopping

Start off with the basics: sweeping and mopping your tile flooring. This is the best and easiest way to keep it looking fresh and clean in the long run. So grab your handy dandy tile floor cleaner and your favorite mop, and get to work! It won’t be too bad, we assure you. And you’ll be so happy in the long run that you did it!

Method #2: Scrubbing

Next, it’s time to get our hands dirty (or not; gloves are always an option!). Keeping grout clean requires a certain amount of leg work, a certain amount of scrubbing. When you get to cleaning with your scrub brush, make sure you aren’t using anything too abrasive. You don’t want to scratch the surface of your tile!

Method #3: Steam Cleaning with the Professionals

Steam cleaning is an extremely effective method to cleaning tile and grout! That’s why we always recommend calling in TST Total Restoration; our favorite thing to do is to restore your flooring (or you know, your entire home…) to its original condition! Using nothing but hot water and highly pressurized steam, our professional-grade steam cleaners will effortlessly extract dirt and grime from the pores of your grout and the surface of your tile! Give it a shot; what do you have to lose?

You can always rely on us! TST Total Restoration has been serving the Bonita Springs Florida area for over a decade now; why should we stop? We love what we do; we love helping you. So if your tile and grout is looking a bit dull or stained, give us a call ASAP! 

Spruce Up Your Home or Office this Summer

July 19.2018

When was the last time you cleaned your office? What if you can’t remember the last time? Well friends, it’s definitely time to call in TST Total Restoration to spruce up your office for the summer time. With these uncomfortable temperatures outside, you need a cool, fresh environment to work in! So let’s get to work; how can we, TST, help you?

Whether you have a home office or you work from a high rise, we can help you out. Here are three areas we’ll tackle, but of course, TST Total Restoration can always do more!

So let us tackle the dust and grime on your window blinds; we can likely do it from right where they hang! Call in TST Total Restoration ASAP if your blinds need some professional attention.

Surfaces

How many times have you eaten lunch at your desk and hurried back to work, not caring much to clean up? Probably too many times. And after a while, a Clorox wipe just doesn’t cut it! Fortunately for you and your office, we can help out. We’ll shine up your surfaces so that they finally look brand new again! The trick is always, however, maintaining the clean.

Flooring

We like to work from top to bottom, as dirt and dust may settle onto the flooring of your office. But we won’t forget about your flooring!
