Floor Care Tips

Your Tampa Floor Cleaners

At Bowden's Carpet Cleaning, we understand that life can get busy and complex, especially with the pace of today's economy. For this reason, we are here to provide the professional carpet and tile cleaning services you need. We also strive to keep you informed on the latest maintenance and regular care tips you can follow, minimizing your need for cleaning and replacement services.

Most carpet and upholstery products should be cleaned every four to six months, while tile and grout should be taken care of once a year. Adding protectant after each cleaning process can also help restore and seal the life of your flooring.

We also offer tips for cleaning specific floor types:

  • Carpets: Perform regular vacuuming in high traffic areas, use vacuum cleaner with adjustable, rotating brushes and always vacuum prior to using any wet cleaning method. If you have a spot cleaning vacuum, be sure to use warm water and a very light detergent or cleaner. Never scrub spots back and forth on carpet, as it will only damage the carpet fibers.
  • Tile: Use only water and mild detergent to clean tiles, rinsing the floor and wiping it dry for effective results. Avoid acid-based cleaners or strong powders used for other household cleaning. To prevent grout from staining, a penetrating sealer can be used on a month to month basis. If you want to eliminate grout stains, let a mixture of water and bleach sit on the floor for 20 minutes before rinsing and wiping it dry.

Our Tampa carpet cleaning company is always available to assist you with your floor care needs. If you have more questions on keeping your carpet, upholstery or tile floor clean, be sure to contact Bowden's Carpet Cleaning today at (813) 363-2040.
