Carpet Flooded! Can You Save It?

Call us today for a competitive quote

A flooded home causes many issues. Depending on the severity of the flood you may experience irreversible damage to electronic ware, furniture, fixtures and flooring. While tiles, lino and concrete can be quite resilient in the face of flooding, carpet can be a little more difficult. To help, the carpet cleaning experts at New Life Cleaning have put together this informative post to help you determine whether you can salvage your carpet after a flood.

What was the condition of the floodwater?

The cause of the flood will often determine the condition of the floodwater. If the floodwater is sanitary, such as rainwater, with no contamination you have the best chance to save your carpet. As soon as you are able, contact a flooding services company that provides water damage clean up. After this you can contact a professional carpet cleaning service to remove any excess water and to remove any mildew or mould that may have developed. This will ensure that your carpet is both hygienic and fresh scented.

If the floodwater is unsanitary, such as toilet water containing urine or faeces, you should exercise more caution. In most cases it’s much safer to discard your carpet, but if you are set on salvaging the carpet, you will need to use strong disinfectants to kill off any bacteria or other contaminants before hiring a professional carpet cleaning service. If the floodwater is blackwater (water mixed with raw sewage) the carpets should be throw away immediately.

Trying to entice, force or demand that our kids clean and tidy their bedrooms is an age-old problem that just about everyone has to deal with at some point. While some kids are clean and tidy by nature, for the majority the thought of having to tidy their room or, heaven forbid, actually do some dusting and vacuuming, is akin to asking them to go to the dentist and have their teeth drilled without anaesthetic.

Kid Vacuuming a Capet

So what are some ways children and teenagers can be encouraged to clean their rooms?

Bribery

This one’s a bit tongue in cheek, but bribery can work to a point. Offering money or favours in return for your kids performing a task they should do anyway could just create a precedent where they expect to be rewarded every time they do something, or every time you ask them to do something. This tactic can work, but only use it sparingly.

Post a Cleaning Schedule In Their Room

This will at least serve as a reminder. Don’t make the schedule intense. Have something like make the bed every day, put dirty clothes in the laundry hamper daily, dust and vacuum once every two weeks, tidy the room once a week. They may not stick to the cleaning schedule, but with it in full view they may at least feel inspired to tidy up more regularly.

Set a Good Example

There is little point demanding our children be clean and tidy if we aren’t. If they see you cleaning routinely and keeping your own bedroom in tip top shape especially, at least they will know you are leading by example and you can actually speak with real authority when you demand they do the same.

Do Chores Together

The first few times help them clean their rooms so they experience a sense of teamwork and know what’s expected of them when you ask them to perform the task in future. Most importantly, praise them for a job well done. We all respond to positive words like this, so don’t forget to offer praise on their cleaning efforts. This will also help to instil a sense of pride in your child. Hopefully they will become quite proud of their cleaning efforts, as well as their clean and tidy bedrooms.

Cull Items With a Passion

The less clutter there is in your kids’ rooms, the easier it will be to keep them clean and tidy. While they might whine and moan when you want to toss out old, broken toys and the like, do it anyway. Cleaning their bedroom will seem way less daunting if there is very little clutter around. Plus, the room will remain tidier for the lack of possessions.

Call In Professional Cleaners Regularly

Even if you do have a good routine in place and the kids are learning to keep their rooms in order, it’s still a good idea to call in a professional cleaning service for a really thorough clean every so often.

At New Life Cleaning we are meticulous and take great pride in delivering results of the highest standards. We can clean your entire house, and this includes one of our specialty areas – carpet cleaning.

Our 4 stage carpet cleaning process will have your carpets looking, feeling and smelling like new again. Call us for:

Air-Con Cleaning

Do you have an investment property that you are renting out as a holiday rental? Does it have an air-conditioning system? Do you clean it regularly?

If you aren’t having it professionally and regularly cleaned, your air-conditioning system is costing you more money than you realise and worse, it is actually unhealthy!

Air-conditioning systems have filters that help to keep the components within the system, namely the blower and evaporator coil clean.

If these filters become clogged with dirt and dust, it blocks the airflow, resulting in your system using much more energy (electricity) to run meaning larger than necessary electricity bills for you.

Having your filters cleaned can help to reduce your energy costs!

Another consideration to cleaning your air-conditioning system is that it could become a health hazard.

As you now know, air-conditioners use filters and the nature of an air-conditioning system is to circulate the same air around a room. When these filters are clogged, the air-conditioning unit is actually re-circulating the same dust and dirt particles back into the air.

In severe cases, mould and bacteria can grow, so the system is also then re-circulating allergens into the air we breathe, along with the clogged up dust and dirt particles.

If you are renting out your investment property to holidaymakers, you need to ensure the living environment within your rental property is healthy and not making them sick.

To avoid a clogged, dirty and highly inefficient air-conditioning system, call New Life Cleaning on 0410 491 906.

We can professionally clean your system to ensure your system’s filters are spotlessly clean, so it runs as efficiently as it should.

We service the greater Sunshine Coast areas for all homeowners, businesses and landlords who want to ensure their air-conditioning systems are running efficiently and healthily, whilst saving them money.

We can also set up a preventative maintenance cleaning schedule that will see your system cleaned at regular intervals to avoid any inconvenient breakdowns for your holiday season renters.

We all clean every day of our lives. Much of the time the cleaning we do around the home or office is sufficient. But do we want to do all the cleaning? Or would we rather hire a professional to take care of it for us?

In this article, we’ll look at a few of the advantages of getting in professional cleaners.

An Expert Saves Time

We all lead busy lives. How many of us really have the time to clean our home thoroughly? And what about things like carpets and upholstery? Chances are we never clean these ourselves.

While we may not have the time to do all the cleaning ourselves after a long day at work, it’s not the case for professional cleaners. Cleaning is their job and they do it well. Day after day, professional cleaners clean all sorts of items. This means they quickly become very efficient cleaning experts. Along with quality equipment and the very best cleaning products, a professional will get the job done in half the time you would take and the results will be better.

Experience Counts for A Lot

Professionals have the necessary experience – along with the gear – to do the job properly. They are used to encountering stubborn carpet stains and know how to remove them. Professional cleaning services also know the most efficient ways to get things done, how to thoroughly clean your air conditioner, for example, or really get that grout between the tiles sparkling again.

Employing quality equipment along with expert techniques ensures a thorough clean that will have your home shining like new.

You Get to Relax!

With experts on the job, it means you get to relax. While the cleaners are there doing their thing, you can duck off and play a round of golf, go to the beach for a refreshing swim, get the shopping done, or come home from work to be greeted with a sparkling clean home.

Professional Cleaning Is Worth It

This really counts when it comes to things like carpet cleaning and tile and grout cleaning. Experts have the know-how to get the task done right. Why bumble around doing it yourself, using products that just don’t work. Call in the experts.

For all your professional cleaning needs in the Noosa area – Peregian Springs and Sunrise Beach, get in touch with the friendly team at New Life Cleaning.

Spring has just arrived on the Sunshine Coast and summer is fast approaching.

The weather is about to get hot and humid and the air conditioners will be switched on and put through their paces. You want to stay nice and cool throughout the warmer months, so you will want your air conditioner to be working at its optimum. The best way to achieve this is by having your air conditioner thoroughly cleaned.

Chances are it hasn’t had a good clean since the start of last season. Maybe longer in some cases. Now, most people think they should call in an air conditioner service tech or a refrigeration mechanic to give their air-con a clean, but these guys generally just take out the filters, give them a wash to remove the dust and put them back in. That’s really only about a tenth of the overall cleaning job, if that.

It is important to keep those filters clean – and that’s something everyone in the household should get in the habit of doing regularly – but to get the most efficiency out of your air conditioner it’s vital that it receives a thorough clean at the start of the new season.

At New Life Cleaning we do way more than merely remove your air conditioner’s filters and wash away the dust. We get deep into the system, pulling it apart and really giving it that deep clean that it needs. Dust and grime does get past the filter and into the guts of the machine. Added to this is a build-up of mould and mildew, bacteria, germs, pet dander, pollen, fats from cooking and dust mites. You really want to target all this at least once a year and get rid of the grime.

A thorough cleaning will achieve the following results:

  • Your air conditioner will run more efficiently and keep you cooler
  • It will be more energy-efficient, saving you dollars
  • Improved air quality, free of germs and harmful bacteria and mould spores
  • It will smell nice

Cleaning the filter only will help it run a little more efficiently, but it won’t take care of the other problems that are only resolved through thorough cleaning. We employ a 10 step process that includes spraying many components with a mould remover that kills bacteria as well. We even deodorise it and replace the batteries in your remote control.

Spring has begun. Book in a thorough air conditioner cleaning with New Life Cleaning service before summer really kicks in. We are based on the Sunshine Coast and service everywhere between Mooloolaba up to Noosa and out to Buderim.

If you are about to put your home on the market, or it is already up for sale, then you will want it to be presented in the very best light to get the sale. A clean and shiny house will certainly impress when the real estate agent organises an open home.

Have you considered having it thoroughly cleaned by a professional cleaning service?

I don’t just mean a domestic cleaner. I’m referring to a cleaning company that does the lot.

New Life Cleaning on the Sunshine Coast

If your home is on the Sunshine Coast, between Mooloolaba, Noosa and Buderim, then get in touch with the expert cleaning team at New Life Cleaning. We specialise in many cleaning services that also include thorough bond cleans; which is the kind of clean you will want when trying to sell your home and wanting it to look its sparkling best.

We will clean your house from top to bottom and we only use the very best cleaning products and high-quality cleaning equipment.

But cleaning your home in general is not all we do. Our services include the following:

You may not be selling your furniture with the home, but it is part of the presentation when people come to view it. Beautiful clean furniture, although yours, will help to make the sale.

Having the carpets professionally cleaned and then coated in protection will really add another element to the appearance of your home. People notice dirty carpets, so definitely get them cleaned properly.

The same can be said for the tiles in the kitchen, bathrooms and anywhere else in the home where tiles are present. And don’t forget about that grout. Nothing looks worse than dirt and grime between the tiles. Professional grout cleaning and tile cleaning will have those tiles looking new again.

People often forget about the air conditioner. What happens if a prospective buyer opens the cover and is greeted with dust and mould? It will turn them off. Clean those air conditioners as well. Don’t leave anything up to chance. First impressions count with selling a home as much as they count for anything else.

Present your home in its best possible light. Book in for professional cleaning with New Life Cleaning on the Sunshine Coast.

The arrival of spring means many things. Summer is just around the corner and fun times are ahead. It is the time of the year when we all awake from our winter slumber and hibernation and get active.

It’s also traditionally a time of the year when many of us decide it’s time to give our homes a really thorough cleaning. But the very thought of all that work makes us feel like crawling back into bed and not think about it. Let’s face it: The home probably hasn’t had a really thorough clean for a long time, and getting it up to scratch is going to be tiring and arduous work.

Take The Pressure Off With Professional Cleaning

Why take on all that workload yourself when you can have some of all of the cleaning done by a professional? Sure, you have to pay for it, but if it’s within your budget, then leave the hard grind to those that do it for a living, like the team at New Life Cleaning on the Sunshine Coast.

What We Do

If you like we can clean your entire house for you from top to bottom, or you could just get your carpets and tiles cleaned. The choice is yours, but the point is, we can do it all. Here’s an easy list of what we can do for you:

Yes, as you can see, lots of cleaning. That’s why you should seriously consider hiring our services for that big spring clean. We do this every day. Our fast and efficient service will have all of your home sparkling in no time while you don’t even have to work up a sweat.

We can make those old and worn tiles look like new again with out expert cleaning techniques. The grout will look white instead of black or grey, and when we’re done, we can even seal the tiles with professional tile sealing to keep them looking great for many months to come.

Rejuvenate those tired old carpets, get the grime out of those air conditioners with a thorough cleaning in time for summer, revamp that furniture and spruce it up along with the rest of your home.

Spring is the season of new beginnings and fresh starts. Get your spring off to a fresh start by breathing new life into your home. Book in a spring clean with New Life Cleaning on the Sunshine Coast.

Cleaning the tiles in your home is only doing half the job.

Everyone cleans the tiles all the time when you really think about it. You mop the floors, give the tiles in the shower cubicle a scrub. That tiled splashback in the kitchen gets a wipe over here and there. This is all-important, but it’s not really giving the grout a thorough clean. And the tiles could use a really detailed cleaning once in a while by a professional cleaning service.

Tile cleaning and grout cleaning can be one of those really arduous tasks to do around the home; especially the grout. And if the tiles are cleaned but the grout is still dirty, then it looks as though nothing has been cleaned at all. It is a good idea to call in a professional tile and grout cleaner to do the hard work for you once in a while.

Bathrooms can be especially tough because of the damp, humid environment. It really presents the perfect breeding ground for mould. This mould gets into the grout and stays there. Bleach will remove some of it, but not the ingrained mould and subsequent staining.

It’s the same for the kitchen. In this area of the home food and liquids and fats from cooking are getting all over the tiles and grout on a constant basis, leaving behind a sheen of grime even when you do clean the tiles.

What Will Be Achieved with Professional Tile Cleaning and Grout Cleaning?

  • It will restore your tiles and grout to their former glory
  • The grout will be sparkling clean and white again
  • Mould and mildew will be eradicated
  • Germs and bacteria will be dead and gone

Professional tile cleaning and grout cleaning is a much cheaper alternative to replacing the old tiles with new ones. After a thorough clean with our specialised process, we can even seal the tiles for you with our tile sealing service, making sure your revamped tiles stay looking their very best for many months to come.

New Life Cleaning to The Rescue

Servicing the Sunshine Coast from Mooloolaba up to Noosa, the expert team at New Life Cleaning specialise in tile cleaning and grout cleaning. We use only top-notch equipment and cleaning agents to get the job done right. So give us a call today and rejuvenate those tired old tiles.

When people clean their home they rarely think of cleaning something like the mattresses on the beds.

The pillows on the bed get more attention than the mattress does. In fact, many pillow manufacturers now stamp a use-by date on the pillows so you will replace them.

Why?

Because they get a build-up of grime and bacteria. Well, the exact same thing can be said for your mattress.

Some bachelors out there are flat out giving their sheets a wash, let alone giving a second passing thought to getting the mattress cleaned. But bachelor or not, every mattress should get a thorough cleaning every now and then, and here’s why.

What Secretly Lives in Your Mattress?

Nasty little dust mites for one.

Have you ever had one of those nights in bed where you just feel incessantly itchy? You keep scratching but the itches just won’t go away?

This could be related to the number of dust mites that have been breeding in the bed linen and, more likely, breeding within the mattress itself. These little critters are microscopic, so you can’t see them, but that doesn’t mean they are not present. Then there is the possibility of bed bugs and their excrement.

Bacteria also runs rampant inside a dirty mattress and on its sleeping surface. Bacteria and germs in the bed can lead to coughs and colds, or potentially something even worse. Think about it. Every night when you are asleep you are breathing in these bacteria and dust mites. Can’t be good for you.

Other Truths Uncovered

Mould and mildew also grow in a mattress. People sweat in bed, creating a warm and damp environment for mould spores to flourish. People also perform other functions in bed that can leave behind dampness. Illness can result from exposure to mould, and apart from anything else, those mildew stains on the mattress do not look appealing at all.

Another thing that builds up in a mattress is fine particles of dead skin. We all shed skin cells, all of the time and the only way to really keep these out of the bed is to change the sheets regularly and at least occasionally have the mattress cleaned by a professional cleaning service.

Professional Mattress Cleaning Service

At New Life Cleaning service we employ professional steam cleaning to give your mattresses a really thorough clean. Our expert techniques and equipment not only clean your mattress and make it look like new again, but they also kill harmful bacteria, dust mites and bed bugs as well as removing the build-up of grime, dead skin, hair and anything else you don’t want present. Book in for thorough, professional mattress cleaning today with New Life Cleaning on the Sunshine Coast.
