When our kids graduate, it’s the culmination of years of hard work, family support, obstacles overcome and joy all rolled into one. That’s why so many parents, aunties, brothers and grandparents tear up when they hear “Pomp and Circumstance” float out of the speakers at the graduation ceremony. Graduation marks emotional growth as well as academic achievement.
So, when it’s time to celebrate, it’s time to do it up big! You’ll need to order food to feed a crowd and maybe get one of those cakes with the graduate’s picture on it (though it’s a little strange to cut into).
Before you stock up the party supplies, start with a good whole house spruce to welcome your guests. Deep clean the kitchen. Dust off the patio furniture and scrub the grill. Don’t forget to eliminate dust, germs, pollen and stains with a springtime carpet and upholstery cleaning too.
Freshen up the carpet
Let’s start with your carpeting. It’s one of the first things guests notice when you open your front door. If it’s in good shape, your guests may ask if they need to remove their shoes when entering. If it’s not, your guests may think all sorts of thoughts (What’s that smell? How old is that carpet?), but they won’t let you know what those are!
Regular carpet maintenance can help ensure your house is inviting and it can also save you money. Of course, vacuum your carpet weekly to keep your carpet fibers in top shape. Then, hire a professional carpet cleaner to deep steam clean your carpets and upholstery. The care will restore your carpet texture and ensure your furnishings are renewed for guests.
A Personal Touch steam cleaning technology removes nasty germs, even coronavirus, deep down into your carpet and upholstery fibers. Our cleaning water is heated up to 230 degrees Fahrenheit. According to our industry guidelines, just 125 degrees Fahrenheit kills 98 percent of household germs including colds, flu and bed bugs. Our deep soil carpet cleaning with a potent truck-mounted steam cleaning system removes tough stains and odors, including cat and dog urine stains and smells.
Sanitize the upholstery
Dining room chairs, recliners, couches, loveseats, armchairs and throw pillows all need an occasional deep cleaning too. This will ensure your guests don’t encounter any surprises when sitting down to chat about impressive achievements and future plans.
Remember the time your graduate had friends over for raucous games in the family room? The spills on the chairs are still there, as are the ones on the couch cushion that was just flipped over to hide them! Those are memories you don’t need to keep. Stains, dinginess and even pet odors can be removed with a thorough cleaning performed by A Personal Touch Carpet Cleaning. Disinfecting and deodorizing after cleaning can help you keep your furniture looking newer longer too.
