  • Orange County, CA (1888PressRelease) March 19, 2012 - Tuesday, March 20, 2012, marks the official start to Spring. For centuries, people have celebrated the Spring Equinox as they begin the transition from winter's cold messes into a warmer, more active season. The deep cleaning activities that have become routine for many homeowners throughout the spring are celebrated in a week-long event: Spring Cleaning Week 2012, which started Monday, March 19 and extends through Sunday, March 25.

    "Spring cleaning is an essential ritual as we work to maintain a healthy home," said Ed Quinlan from Chem-Dry carpet cleaning's headquarters. Families who don't regularly deep clean their homes may be more susceptible to illness and allergies throughout the year. We are glad to announce our support for this week of cleaning activities at Chem-Dry."

    Chem-Dry announced a series of tips and resources on the Chem-Dry USA Facebook fan page to help homeowners make the cleaning transition into Spring a smooth success.

    "This is the perfect time to get our homes in order after the stresses of winter," Quinlan said. "There's something very invigorating about going through and doing a comprehensive cleaning throughout the house. Whether you're working in the kitchen, family room or bedrooms, a deep cleaning is part of getting rid of the dirt and mess that comes with winter's weather - and preparing for a more healthy term before common seasonal allergies start."

    Some activities are safely and easily completed by family members, other activities are best left to the professionals, he added. "Build a list and decide which activities are more routine and you can tackle on your own and which will best performed by trained experts."

    While wiping down walls, ceiling fans and cabinets with a damp cloth can help collect dust particles so they don't spread throughout the house, carpet cleaning is an essential part of deep cleaning the home. Because carpet surfaces catch and retain large amounts of dust in their fibers, a regular deep cleaning is core to extracting the particles that cannot be removed with vacuuming alone. Using a deep-extracting cleaning process at least once a year can be an important homecare ritual.

    Carpet care experts suggest professional cleaning to ensure carpets are properly and thoroughly cleaned. These essential cleaning components can be summarized with the acronym: WATCH, which stands for Water, Agitation, Time, Chemistry, and Heat.

    WATER: Chem-Dry, the world's largest carpet cleaning company, uses the perfect amount of water to clean carpets with their Hot Carbonating Extraction system. Most steam cleaners can leave behind large amounts of water that can become a breeding ground for mold and bacteria. Less water means faster dry times.

    AGITATION: Chem-Dry's innovative PowerHead cleaning unit applies a carbonating cleaning solution, in which the carbonating bubbles work to break loose dirt from carpet fibers and help lift them to the surface where they are whisked away by powerful vacuum extractors.

    TIME: Technicians allow the carbonating cleaning solution the proper amount of time to do its work before the rotating PowerHead extracts the water and dirt.

    CHEMISTRY: With a strong commitment to home health, Chem-Dry's core cleaner is an innovative, green solution called The Natural. So, homeowner's don't have to worry about dirt-attracting residues or surfactants being left behind - a common complaint among generic carpet cleaning customers. Spring cleaning doesn't mean you have to use harsh chemicals - research the best companies and products to ensure that your home stays safe for the family, said Quinlan.

    HEAT: Finally, the heated cleaning solution provides a deeper cleaning process, for a comprehensive clean that delights customers, Quinlan commented. "Chem-Dry's Hot Carbonating Extraction process was designed with the family's health in mind," he added.
    The smell of a freshly cleaned house represents the begin of the transition from winter to spring. From the floor up, having a fresh feeling and fresh smelling home is confirmation that your house is ready for the new season.

    "People are ready for the official end to Winter," said Quinlan. "Even in areas where the winter was uncommonly mild, folks are ready to remove as much of the dirt and grime that gets brought into the house as they can."
