Top 5 tips for carpet cleaning in Oahu

Carpet cleaning is something that everyone who owns a carpet needs to do. Carpets in Oahu are especially difficult to clean. Keeping the carpet clean can be frustrating if you don’t know much about the process. Therefore, I have created this article for you. If you do not know anything about carpet cleaning then this article is a good start for you. Below are some of the top carpet cleaning tips for Oahu. If you regularly follow these tips then your carpet will always look clean and the fibers will last much longer.

 

Vacuum regularly

The first thing you need to do to clean your carpets is to vacuum regularly. If you live alone or in a small family then vacuum once every seven days. If more people live in your house, or you have any kids or pets in your house then daily vacuuming is highly recommended. Vacuuming regularly will prevent the growth of invisible dust in your carpet.

 

Deal with Spills immediately

One more important thing that you need to keep in mind is to deal with any spills as soon as possible. For removing any spills on the carpet, you can use a readymade stain remover or make one in your home too. I highly recommend using a homemade stain remover.  If you do not have stain remover at the time, get paper towels and put some of those on the area of the carpet which is affected by the spill.

Do not soak with lot of water

When you are undertaking the carpet cleaning activity, soaking the carpet is essential. But if you use excess water for the soaking of the carpet then it might damage your carpet in more than one ways. Excess water can enable molds to grow in your carpet and therefore shorten the life of the carpet. Also make sure that your home is properly ventilated so that the carpet is dried as quickly as possible after soaking.

 

Use a stain remover

Using the right stain remover is essential for a healthy carpet. You can make it in your home with some baking powder and white vinegar. Or you can buy a carpet stain remover pack from the market. Using stain removers from the supermarkets however can ruin your carpets so it is best to avoid those and always use a homemade stain remover.

 

Use professional carpet cleaning

Finally, if you really want the best for your carpets then using a professional carpet cleaning service is highly recommended. Professional carpet cleaners in Oahu use the best available technology that will help you increase the life of your lovely carpets and help them look squeaky clean and beautiful. Using a professional carpet cleaning is recommended to use once in every 2 years.

Kapolei is by far one of the fastest growing cities on Oahu. What started out as mostly industrial areas and fields, is now home to some of the biggest and best shops on island.

Five Guys in Mililani

Five Guys Mililani

Over the years we have seen more and more mainland food chains arrive in Hawaii.  Some of them don’t live up to the hype and tend to fade away while others seem to find a special place in our hearts. Five Guys Burgers and Fries is the latter. For those of you that don’t know what Five guys is, its a a fast casual restaurant similar to In-N-Out Burger consisting of a simplified menu of mainly burgers fries and shakes. In other words, awesome, greasy, goodness! Just recently Hawaii’s very first Five Guys restaurant just opened up in Mililani Town Center. I have to say it is impressive. As Busy as they are, the staff was great, service was quick, and the food was delicious. Many times when a new place opens employees are not always quit caught up with the way the systems work however the staff did a great job. Iv’e been to other Five Guys on the mainland so I knew what to expect. They did not disappoint. So far with only one location on island, it can be a little out of the way for most to drive down to Mililani for a burger, but trust me when I say this. It’s worth it! So next time you got a day off and your thinking where to go for lunch; don’t fight the traffic trying to get to town. Get to Mililani and go to Five Guys. If you do, I recommend you go all out with a bacon cheeseburger,  cajun fries, and a shake. I know the next time we have a carpet cleaning job in Mililani I’ll be there. Have fun and enjoy! fiveguys_burgerfries2


Hiking Trails in Aiea

Living in Paradise has many advantages. With great weather, and so many different places to explore, it’s so easy to find something different to do every week. One of the most popular and definitely fun things to do is to go hiking. When we are not out cleaning carpets, one of our favorite trails to hike, is the Aiea Loop Trail.  Located at the Taiea loop trail signop of Aiea Heights drive, inside  Keaiwa Heiau State Park. The Aiea Loop trail consists of a five  mile track that starts and ends in the same place.  It is a considered a moderately difficult trail at times but overall it is safe for pets and families with a little bit older children. Along the trail there are many beautiful and interesting things to see.  As you begin your hike you will see a couple of memorials, one is for a World War 2 bomber that crashed many years ago.  There are remnants of the plane still there for you to explore. As you continue to hike the Aiea trail you will notice many scenic views.  There are some rest areas along the way for you to stop and enjoy the scenery. Be mindful of any signs you may see. It is very easy to end up on a the Aiea Ridge Trail. That is a more difficult and longer trail than you might expect. For those of you with more experience and a little more adventurous, find the junction that will take you to Kalauao Falls. To get to this waterfall you will have to go down some very steep and slippery areas. Make sure you have proper footwear and it is probably not a good idea to bring small children with you here. If you continue down the main trail eventually you will get to the end of the loop. From there the views are breathtaking. aiea-loop-trailThis is a great spot to relax before heading back and also a great place to take some pictures. from here you will be able to see for miles and you will get a birds eye view of the H-3 freeway. The path back takes you down a ways to a different exit point from where you started. This is great hike that will probably take you no more than 2-3 hours. Remember to always dress appropriately and be prepared to get muddy. We also recommend you bring bug spray for you and the kids, but most importantly bring plenty of water. Staying hydrated is a must out there. Be safe and have fun!
