Stain Removal By Timothy & Co.

Image
Blood StainsWhile it may not be the most glamorous job it sure is satisfying to see results like these.  These stains were from a customer who got a little too antsy in removing some bandages from a toe nail surgery.  Once the bandages were off there was no turning back and as you can see the carpet took the brunt of the damage.  It is always best to only lightly blot the stain with a warm wet cloth.  DO NOT USE SOAP!!  Soap makes a bubbly mess and leaves sticky residue in your carpet that will attract dirt and soil.  Although there are some over the counter stain removers that work well there are just as many that do not so be careful what you are using to do at home stain removal.  Some products will even set the stain permanently.  As you can see here the homeowner had not touched this stain and it was able to be properly and professionally removed.  Another successful clean performed by Timothy & Co.






When the Tornado Sirens Go Off..

You Just Never Know What to Expect


So the other day I had arrived at my clients home in Alexandria,  it was one of those humid August days here in Minnesota.  I got to work cleaning some upholstery on the homes main level and moved on to cleaning the living room carpets.  The homeowners children were hard to work detailing some of their vehicles in the garage whilst mom was making plans for the upcoming school year.   It started to down pour so I went outside to make sure my van was mostly closed up.  The thing with my truck mount is that the side doors at the very least have to be open,  I prefer that all windows and doors be open to allow proper air flow for cooling the machine but worst case I can run it with just side doors open.  Well I got the van how I wanted it and also got soaked in the process.  On my way back into the home my phone started buzzing and beeping,  thinking it was a phone call I took it out and read the alert "tornado spotted in your area, take shelter"…

The Fight on Urine

One of the most common issues we run into when it comes to cleaning carpets is pet urine.  We offer a variety of urine treatments to tackle those pesky stains and odors but it all begins with locating the source with our UV light.  Then comes some chemistry to neutralize the akaline urine salts and odor molecules followed up with either a steam clean rinse pass, rotory extraction, or deep sub surface flush.  Ahhhh smells fresh!

HydraMaster RX-20

We headed out to get some offices cleaned up at Boys Supply in Hancock last weekend.  The carpets are a low pile commercial grade that take a beating from all of the mud, dirt, and shop grease.  I wanted to make sure we properly went about getting as much soiling up as I could.  The RX-20 is unique in that it rotates 5 flexible heads with suction as well as t jets.  This configuration allows multiple cleaning passes to be made in a short amount of time and less operator fatigue.  With the right chemistry and pre aggitation these carpets cleaned up beautiful and the client was pleased.  Just another diverse cleaning system brought to you by Timothy & Co.
