What Can Pallmann Cleaners Do For YOUR Hardwood Floors?

Hardwood floors are beautiful and anyone who has hardwood as apart of their home knows this. However, they also know that keeping your wood floors looking lush and fresh can take some doing. Hardwood floors, just like any other type of flooring can collect dust, debris and residue. Also, just like
other flooring, there are specific cleaners designed to combat the dulling of hardwood floors.

Today, I'd like to tell you about Pallmann. Pallmann is a hardwood floor cleaner brand dedicated to cleaning and maintaining hardwood flooring. Before you begin cleaning, it's important to know if your floors are Factory Finished or Site Finished. 
If you purchased wood from a distributor that had a finish pre-applied, that would be considered Factory Finished. If you or your contractor applied the finish to the flooring onsite before installation, that would be considered Site Finished. The average hardwood floor is factory finished. 

The best part about Pallmann is that they have something for every issue you might run into with Factory Finished hardwood flooring. From basic routine cleaners, to deep cleaners that remove even the most stubborn residue and prep the floors for a new topcoat. 

Our most popular Pallmann product is by far the Pallmann Hardwood Floor Cleaner in the 32oz sprayer. This cleaner is perfect for routine hardwood cleaning. Its a waterbased, pH neutral formula that doesn't not need to be rinsed after use. Simply spray, mop and let dry. This product is also available as a concentrate in a 1 gallon container so if you need to cover large areas frequently, then you also have that ability with Pallmann. This product can also be used on oiled floors. 

If  your job requires a little extra elbow grease, Pallman's Clean Strong may be the product for you. Clean Strong is designed to prep factory finished floors for a new topcoat. It removes set in build up and residue that other cleaners cannot. Clean Strong is an aggressive cleaner. Be sure to test it in a small area before using.

Another very popular Pallman product is the Pallman Hardwood Cleaning Kit. The kit is an all-in-one
starter pack for anyone who needs to keep their wood floors clean. It includes the Pallman Hardwood Floor Cleaner Spray, a mop and handle, a Pallman Microfiber Dusting Pad and a Pallman Microfiber Mop/Cleaning Pad. Its affordable and everything you need to start getting the most out of your wood floors. Pallman Mop/Dust Pad replacements can be purchased separately. 

Pallman has many more incredible options for wood floor cleaning but these are the basics. Other products include the Pallman Magic Oil Care for floors finished with Pallman Magic Oil 2K and the Pallman Clean N Prep for use as an occasional deep cleaner for oiled or waxed wood floors. 

If you need to get your wood floors looking amazing this season, start with Pallman!

Still have questions? Give us a call! One of our friendly staff is standing by to help you keep your wood floors looking pristine.

Keep Your Carpet Clean With Capture!

Do you have carpet floors? Do you often worry about keeping them dirt and stain free? For most carpet, keeping stains at bay can be a huge pain. Especially when you have pets in the home. Often times, stains and dirt are tracked in on the feet of our furry friends and can lead to long term discoloration that can sully even the nicest homes. No one is immune to dirty carpet. That's why knowing the best way to keep them looking clean and new can be a game-changer. Fortunately, there are some great products on the market that can assist you in keeping your carpet looking its best. 

Today I'd like to talk about the brand CAPTURE and the various products they offer that will help you with your carpet floors. Whether you're dealing with pet stains, general carpet stains and even oil based stains, CAPTURE has the cleaner you need. They even have kits available for beginners. 

First off is the CAPTURE Pet Stain and Odor Remover. This is great for anyone who has pets. Whether you're currently potty-training your pooch or if Fido happens to have the occasional accident, pet stains and odors are just a part of the deal. We love our pets, but lets be honest. Sometimes they're some stinky boys and girls. Fortunately with the Pet Stain and Odor Remover these worries will start to become a thing of the past. To use this cleaner, simply apply a small amount of the Pet Stain and Odor Remover to a stain that has been cleared of all solids and excess liquids. After allowing the cleaner to sit for a few minutes, use a clean cloth and start from the outside and work your way to the center of the stain. Once dry, use a vacuum on the cleaned area for one final cleanup. 

The CAPTURE Spot and Stain Remover is a very similar product with more of a "general purpose" use. It can pick up most any stain including wine and smaller pet stains as well. This is a great cleaner to keep handy just in case you come across some nasty, troublesome stains around the house.

One of their more popular products is the CAPTURE Carpet Spot Eliminator Aerosol Spray. This cleaner is specifically designed to help remove stains caused by oil based spills. This can come in handy if you or your spouse happens to be into cars. Grease stains and oil stains can be so annoying, but not for the Carpet Spot Eliminator. Just give the can a shake, spray it onto the stain and watch it work. You don't even need to dry it!
Undoubtedly, one of the most efficient products available from CAPTURE is the Dry Carpet Cleaning Kit. This kit is all you need to begin your carpet restoration. It contains the patented CAPTURE Dry Carpet cleaning sponges, CAPTURE Pre-Mist Spray and a brush to work the cleaner into the carpet fibers. 
To begin, use the Pre-Mist Spray on the stain in question. The Pre-Mist is a special blend formula that helps prepare the stain to be soaked up by the Dry Carpet Sponges. Once applied, it goes to work in minutes, breaking down dirt, tough stains and allergens that love to stick deep in your carpet. The Pre-Mist is great because not only is it a part of the Dry Clean Kit, but it can also be used as a quick stain and spot picker-upper. You can also use it as a pre-treatment for steam cleaning. 

After letting the Pre-Mist sit for a few minutes, your carpet is ready to be cleaned. The next step is to use the CAPTURE Dry Cleaning Carpet Powder. The kit comes with a 2.5lbs Dry Carpet Powder but it is also available in 4lbs and 8lbs buckets. The powder is comprised of tiny, absorbent sponges that are specifically designed to soak up even the most set in stains. Even stains that have been set in for quite some time crumble when exposed to the combination of Pre-Mist and Dry Carpet Powder. Simply cover the entire stain with the Dry Carpet Cleaning Powder and use the brush included in the kit to work the powder into the stain. Always brush in a up-down, left-right pattern. Brushing in circles can cause the fibers in the carpet to fray. Always be careful when brushing your carpet. Leave the powder down for around 30 minutes, then use a vacuum to clear all of the powder and watch as the stain seems to disappear. 

CAPTURE is perfect for beginners and professionals alike. Get yours today and see the difference CAPTURE can make for your carpet. 

Still have questions? Call us! 800-504-5989

Our friendly staff is waiting to take your call and answer any questions you may have about CAPTURE and general carpet cleaning. 

Our office hours are 8AM - 5PM Mon-Fri (CST)

Is It Time To Update The Air Vents In Your Home?

How old is your home? If you're anything like me and millions of other homeowners across the country, the answer to that is probably 50+ years. Unless you are the first owner of your home, odds are that your home was built around the 1950's or 1960's. Although homeowners commonly remodel their homes to keep up with the current trends and the latest technological developments, often times things like registers and air vents get put aside or forgotten as an afterthought. The goal of this post is to help you understand how updating your registers and vents can have numerous positive affects on your home's value as well as creating a cleaner, safer, environment for you and your family. 

Why Should I Update My Old Vents?

Aside from the cosmetic damage such as scratches, scuffs, dents or general damage that can occur over time, there are other, more relevant dangers involved in neglecting your old vents. For instance, take a look at your old vents. Do you see any rust or corrosion? Maybe a few layers of dirt and grime have accumulated over the years. Have you replaced them since you moved in? If not, there's no way of knowing how long they've been sitting there collecting dust, rust, and bacteria. Your home is only as clean as your air vents and every ounce of air that you and your family breathe, in your home, is cycled through these unassuming installations. Left unchecked, your old air vents could kick up residual airborne bacteria and spread it around your home causing any number of common household illnesses. 

"Your home is only as clean as your air vents..."

On the other hand, updating your vents and registers will, in no small way, add value to your home. As a home owner you should always be thinking about your home's equity and ways to increase it. Updating your vents may seem unimportant when facing a large remodel or when prepping your home for sale, but potential home buyers will notice these things as soon as they enter the home. Vents, old or new, will leave an impression which could sway them one way or the other in the end. 

Where Do I Find The Right Vents For Me?

If you are still reading this, one of the previously mentioned issues probably applies to you. Maybe you'd just like to have that fresh, modern look that your old vents have been lacking or maybe you have children and want to ensure that they have the best air quality that you can provide. Or, maybe you're getting ready sell y our starter home and want to impress potential buyers. Regardless, you need new vents and I'm here to help you find them. The first step in this process is finding the right distributor. There are a number of ways you can do this. You can start local by searching the flooring supply stores in your area or maybe the local Home Depot would have a few options for you to choose from. However, these types of places don't often carry a very wide variety because they buy their products based on what sells best, not what will most accurately suit your needs. 

Your best bet in finding vents that work for you is online. Even in 2018 some people have reservations about purchasing anything online and while its good to stay cautious, there are a lot of great businesses out there that just want to help you get what you need regardless of where you are located. I work for one of them! That being said, type in a quick google search for what you need, I'd imagine that you'd be able to find a couple good options right on the first page. Also, if your willing to take my word for it, I'll include a few links at the end of this post for you to check out.

How Do I Select The Vents I Need?

Now that we know that vents are an important part of maintaining a clean and healthy home, add value to  your home and where to find them, the next step is figuring out exactly what vents you need. Registers and vents come in all sorts of shapes and sizes and can be placed on virtually any surface as long as there is ducting available. Floors, walls, ceilings, baseboards, you name the space and there is probably a register or vent designed to fit there. Luckily for you and millions of others in your situation, the register and vent industry has become largely standardized over the last 100 years or so. Meaning, if you pay attention to detail, selecting and installing your vents on your own is no longer an impossible task. On the contrary, you'll find that it's really quite simple and there are many resources available to help answer any questions you may have. 

"There will always be a vent or register to fit your 

When getting started, note where the vent you're trying to replace is located. Is the duct hole in the floor, the wall, the ceiling, the baseboard? It's important to know considering that not all vents are compatible with every surface. For instance, a ceiling register could not be placed on the floor because it is not designed to sustain heavy foot traffic and a floor register would not normally be used on a wall because often times they are not built with screw holes for fastening. There are some exceptions, but when selecting vents and registers for your home it is better to not take chances. There will always be a vent or register to fit your exact needs, even if it needs to be built custom to your specifications. It's always best to take any guessing out of the equation when dealing with such important subjects. 

Although floor, ceiling and wall vents are fairly straight forward, baseboard vents can often be confusing. The hole of a baseboard vent can be either in the floor or the wall depending on where the HVAC installer put them. They will typically be either on the floor right next to the wall or on the wall right next to the floor. If the hole is in the wall next to the floor you can use both a Triangular Baseboard Vent or a Rectangular Baseboard Vent to cover it depending on what suits your needs. If the hole is in the floor next to the wall the best options would be a Triangular Baseboard Vent.

Do I Need A Register Or a Return?

Now that we know where the hole is and what style of vent is best to use for our application it's time to decide; Register or Return? Whats the difference? The difference between registers and returns is simple yet important. It determines whether or not you are able to control the air flow through the vent. A register has what's referred to as a Damper installed inside of the main vent housing, normally controlled by a small lever or knob, that allows you to open or close the vent to air flow. This comes in handy when you're trying to close off certain rooms to save on AC/Heating expenses. A return is just a grill that remains open at all times. More often than not, registers will be slightly more expensive than returns. In many instances, even if your existing vent is a register, you may be able to purchase a return instead of a register without compromising your air flow. For example, if your existing vent is a register but has remained open for up to a year without an issue, replacing it with a return would be a much more cost effective solution than replacing it with another register that will also just remain open. It would have the same impact on your home regardless in cases such as the one I just described. 

How Do I Know What Size Vent I Need?

Most vents are measured by the size of the duct hole. I'll say it again for the people in the back. MOST VENTS ARE MEASURED BY THE SIZE OF THE DUCT HOLE! For example, if you have an air duct hold that is 12" x 6", then in order to fill that duct hole you would purchase a 12" x 6" vent. Now, a 12" x 6" vent may have an overall dimension that is closer to 14" x 8" but the actual vent insert is made specifically to fit that 12" x 6" hole. The outside dimension is the overhang that secures the vent into the hole. Often times there will be screw holes on this portion of the vent for fastening to the wall or ceiling. On floor vents the overhang is what keeps the vent from falling into the duct hole. This is the industry standard. When ordering your vents, it's very important to make sure that you are ordering the correct size so that you can avoid mishaps and having to return or exchange your vent for the correct size. When working with customers, I always make sure to reiterate this information multiple times during the ordering process to ensure that they only have to order the vent once and that they get it right the first time through. Not only is it a good practice from a customer service stand point, but incorrect sizing can lead to unsightly mistakes or even harmful accidents if weight is placed on a vent that wasn't properly sized. 

"Most vents are measured by the size of the duct hole."

Another important thing to note about floor vents is the placement of the vent on the floor. You know your home better than anyone else. You know the areas that have the most traffic and the areas that have the least. Most floor vents are designed to be able to handle a hefty amount of weight but if you're placing a large floor vent on an area that receives a high level of foot traffic, you will definitely want to make sure that you are purchasing a slightly thicker gauge metal material for your vent so that it can support the weight of being walked on frequently. If you come across an issue like this during your remodel or home project, its best to call a professional for advice. Most industry professionals are willing to answer all of your questions regardless of whether or not you hire them for their services. I know I'm always happy to help customers and non customers when it comes to choosing the right vent sizes and thickness for their projects so feel free to call and ask away!
