Your local carpet cleaners Melbourne
It seems to be that time of year again, where we celebrate with family and friends and marvel at how the year has passed so quickly.
It is a time for rituals and traditions, some old and some new. We are local carpet cleaners Melbourne and with three young children, we really enjoy the wonder and magic that this time of year brings and we are enjoying creating our own special Christmas traditions. In our family we don’t have a traditional Christmas tree, instead we choose interesting branches found on our walks to and from our local Melbourne school. We decorate these branches with hand made ornaments made by my wife and children over the past few years. Each child so proud of their own unique creation.
If you do happen to have a living tree, make sure you lay some plastic or protective fabric on the floor under the tree to protect your carpet from spills. Also make sure the tree is secure in a bucket of water filled with small rocks or a Christmas tree cradle. This is so it doesn’t tip over and cause water damage to your carpet.
If you do have an accident with the water make sure you soak up as much of the water as possible with old towels and try to dry the area with a fan or heater. Do not stand on the area as this will force the water down into the underlay. If you have a large spill make sure you phone us, your local carpet cleaners in Melbourne. We will extract the water and apply the necessary treatments to stop mould and discolouration. For more Christmas carpet cleaning tips please click here.
Papier Mache Magic!
Another favourite tradition of ours is the Christmas Pinata! We make a pinata every year from a balloon and papier mache. The kids love getting hands on with the flour paste glue, they enjoy the creative process. It takes a week or so to get all the layers on and painted. My wife however, does not enjoy the clean up afterwards! We grin and bear it when we see the look pure joy on their faces and to be honest we love to see them working co-cooperatively rather than the usual sibling bickering.
If the kids get creative with your carpet or upholstery, don’t panic and don’t go crazy with store bought cleaners. Call Black Gold, your local carpet cleaners Melbourne for advice. We can usually suggest the appropriate method for your spill or stain. Often it is something you can do your self using products you already have in your kitchen/laundry/bathroom cupboard. If not, we are always happy to come out and clean the stain for you.
