Upholstery Cleaning in Tampa

upholstery cleaning tampaThere are a number of reasons why you may need upholstery cleaning in Tampa right now. In a lot of ways, having a puppy and having a newborn baby are similar experiences. They are both ridiculously cute. They are both small. They are both prized possessions. They are both spoiled by everyone in the family. They both put things in their mouths that they shouldn’t. And they are both very messy.

As they grow older, some of these similarities fade away, but both pets and babies will always leave a mess. If you have dogs or children or both (in which case, you might want to get your head checked), your furniture is bound to have some spots and stains. The puppy got excited and peed (gross). The kid spilled their juice and cereal all over the place (also gross). After a while, you start to call that couch the children’s couch, and your adult friends tend to avoid that over worn, untidy, stained piece of furniture. Eventually, the couch starts to get unsightly from the marks, and you think you will have to get rid of it. You don’t want to spend thousands of dollars on a new furniture set, and you don’t want to remove this artifact of family history from your home either. Instead of replacing something your family loves, you can get  upholstery cleaning and save money and prevent tears.

You can trust Chris Carpet for Upholstery Cleaning in Tampa to make your couch look like new after years of messy dogs and sloppy kids. Their tools, techniques and experience will get your couch and other furniture spiffy and spot-free in no time. Their methods of hot water extraction and dry solvent cleaning are ensured to take care of light cleaning or deep stains. The 7-step process will make your beloved family couch look like it did when your dog was just a puppy, and your child just a baby.

Area Rug Cleaning


A rug is defined as a thick fabric for covering part of a floor, but it is so much more than that isn’t it? If you’re a woman you know that a rug can completely change a room. It can take a boring, bland room and make it exciting. If you’re a man, you know how seriously women can take rugs. My dad is a carpet installer, and I still remember when he got into a huge fight with his girlfriend because he cut up a piece of spare carpet in the garage and used it as a rug in the living room. Needless to say, she was not happy. One of his arguments for keeping the ‘rug’ or piece of old carpet, is that area rug cleaning is too difficult, and although his girlfriend wanted to argue she knew that he had a good point.

Everyone knows the struggle of cleaning a rug. Do you shake it out? Then you get dirt and dust in your eyes and have to go to the doctor and wear an eye patch for the next week. Do you vacuum it? Then you break the vacuum because it tried to eat the rug and you have to go buy a new one. What if you spill something on it? Do you get down and scrub it? No matter how many times you yell “Blot it don’t rub it!” you know someone’s going to rub it right into the rug. Then you have a nice big beautiful stain in the middle of your rug. Maybe it will just give it more character though, right? OR, or you could call an area rug cleaning service, and you can save your vocal cords from the unnecessary strain of yelling at a “scrubbing will get the stain out” rug-ruiner.

Instead of dealing with a rug-ruiner, I suggest getting a rug-fixer-upper. If you need an area rug cleaning service in the St Petersburg, Clearwater, and Tampa Bay area, call Chris’ Carpet Service at (727) 397-1511. They will make your rug look brand new, without you having to get an eye-patch, a new vacuum, or bronchitis from yelling at people who won’t listen.

Water Restoration Company in St. Petersburg

There are upsides to living in a town near the Gulf like St. Petersburg, and there are downsides. Upsides include that you are close to the beach; you have year-round mild temperatures, palm trees, cool beach bars, and generally chill vibes. Downsides: it rains a lot, and your house is more likely to flood when it rains due to the lower-than-sea level elevation that most of Florida inhabits.

When it rains outside, you might think, no big deal, just another crappy Florida weather day. You go about your daily business; knife-sharpening, home-tattooing, marble sculpting, Facebook stalking. Then, you step into a room in your house, and your carpet feels like a wet sponge. The soaked floor squelches nastily between your toes, and you see the water spreading menacingly throughout your entire living room. You realize that your whole floor will get ruined, fast, unless you do something. Acknowledging the rather large area quickly becoming affected, you also admit this will take a professional water restoration company to fix. Because trying to take matters into your ignorant hands could not only lead to the ruin of your grandmother’s antique rug, but to the ruin of the hardwood floor under said antique rug. Chris Carpet has the tools and people to clean up the mess and prevent further damage. That way all of the water is gone, and the after-effects of the potential water damage are eradicated as well. This means no gross bacterial business or odor ordeals to sort out when you thought the water war was already won. You can return to your daily activities while they remove the water, fix the damage, and assess the area for future problems. Chris Carpet is available 24/7, so you can call them anytime you need a water restoration company in St. Petersburg at 727.397.1511 You will be glad you left it to the pros.

Clearwater Carpet Cleaning

There are a lot of things that go in our house to cause wear and tear. Especially if you have kids. Most of the day to day chaos that happens within our home every day—cooking dinner in the kitchen, building a fort in the living room with your children, playing with the dog—doesn’t seem like it is taking a big toll on your home. But the truth of the matter is that every time we walk into our home, every time we let our beloved pets in from the backyard, we are dragging dirt and debris out through the home. The problem is that most of it is not noticeable… especially on a day to day basis.

And before you know it your carpets are looking much more dingy and worn than the first few months you had them installed. But it doesn’t have to be this way. If you take advantage of Chris Carpet’s Carpet cleaning services in Clearwater you will be doing your home, and yourself, a really big favor. Most people think vacuuming weekly will suffice—but having a professional cleaning company at least once every few months is necessary if you want to keep your rugs looking new.

To learn more about how a Clearwater carpet cleaning service can help make your home look rejuvenated, give Chris Carpet a call today.

Pet Odor Removal in Largo

I went to visit a friend in Largo the other day and was hit with the overwhelming stench of wet dog the minute I walked in the door. I always dread going into her home because I know that the smell is overwhelming. It’s not as if my friend has an unclean home or anything. It’s just that she has three dogs and two cats. She quickly apologized for the smell, and I could sense her embarrassment. “I’ve tried almost everything to get rid of the smell!” she complained. She was in desperate need of pet odor removal services. As a cat owner myself, I felt for her. The essence of wet dog is as hard to get rid of as cat urine.

Up until recently, I had the same problem. I accidentally bought the wrong litter one time, and found my cat’s protest in the middle of my rug. I had tried every odor removal spray on the market, but nothing completely eliminated the smell, only decreased the pungency. Fed up, I decided it was time for a professional. After hearing excellent reviews, I called Chris Carpet Service in Largo for their pet odor removal services.

At first, I was hesitant the treatment would work. I’d tried everything else; I doubted that pet odor removal in Largo would be any different. But boy was I wrong! Their team came in and went straight to work. After they left, I was amazed at the lack of smell. There was no odor at all. For anyone struggling with this stinky problem I strongly recommend Chris Carpet Service. Their experts can eliminate even the strongest of pet odors and get your house smelling fresh again.

Vacuuming Is Not Enough

Carpet Cleaning Service in Largo and Clearwater

Spilling something on an expensive shirt is one thing, but when you spill something on your carpet it’s a different story. It’s not like you can exactly spray some OXYclean and throw it in the washer machine, right?

Too many people think vacuuming is enough. Until recently, I did as well. I figured if I bought an expensive enough vacuum, and implemented a strict policy of taking your shoes off at the door, dirt buildup would never be an issue. Boy, was I wrong.

It is amazing (and disgusting) how quickly our carpets can turn almost an entirely different color. What seems like a small wine spill (followed by aggressive scrubbing with baking soda and water) here, and a little tracked mud the dog brings in there, actually add up over time to a big mess of a carpet.

Professional carpet cleaning may seem like a silly service to some—but these are also probably the same people who will be slapped with gross charges when moving out of their rented apartment, or are oblivious to what other people aren’t—that their carpets make their home look dingy.

For a professional and reliable carpet cleaning service in the Largo and Clearwater areas, call Chris Carpet Service (727) 397-1511 today for a free quote and 24 hour emergency response!

Largo Furniture Cleaning Company

It’s embarrassing. And it’s something you’ve have been meaning to take care of for a while, but have continually let it slide, knowing there are more important life events that demand your attention.

But the problem simply doesn’t go away. You hate having guests over. You remind yourself to do something about it every time you go to relax… but still, it hasn’t been done.

We’re talking about your dingy furniture. That couch L shaped red couch you love so much? Admit it. You loved it a lot more when it was just a tad bit more vibrant looking.

Over time, it can be difficult to see how wear and tear is affecting the over all appearance of our home, especially fabric and upholstered. And once you do notice it, it’s hard to notice anything else… especially when you want to lay back and relax but can’t stop staring at the who-knows-what food stain on the ottoman.

If any of this is familiar to you, it’s time to call a professional Largo furniture cleaning company that can take this one small, but consistent, irritant in your life.

You can try generic cleaning products, especially to help on a day to day basis, but if you care about maintaining the longevity of your furniture’s lifespan, or really care about keeping your home decor looking fresh and new, it is far better to have it professional cleaned at least once every 6 months.
