Some Messes Can’t Wait…. Cleaning Pet Messes
Our customer called upset that her dog had peed on the living room couch. The odor was overwhelming and even after using urine enzymes she could not get the odor to go away. We reassured her that we could clean the odor with our EPA approved sanitizing cleaning products, which were much stronger than the enzyme she had used.
When our technician came to the house, she was appreciative of the special precautions we took for her safety and our crew’s safety.
- We used personal protective equipment (PPE) gloves and mask.
- We were respectful of the social distancing requirements.
- We even cleaned all of our touch points on doorknobs, etc. after we finished the cleaning.
Cleaning Kid Messes
Moms have been calling because stay-at-home kids mean at-home messes. Messy kids are more creative and science shows that messy kids learn more. Here are some tips for you that will help keep your sanity during these stay-at-home times.
- Encourage your kids to be creative in their bedrooms.
- Realize that your home is never going to be fully cleaned.
- Make family cleaning times part of your daily routine.

How do you get rid of marker messes on carpet or upholstery?
- Blot with marker stain with alcohol.
- Don’t rub because it will smear.
- Keep blotting.
While most kid’s messes take extra cleaning time each day, they are easily done. There are some messes that just can’t be cleaned without the help of a professional. According to the Mayo Clinic, anything that collects dust like your carpets can trigger allergy and asthma attacks. So if you find yourself challenged with a mess you can’t handle, like marker pens, we are here to help. Putting everything Like New Again.
Cleaning after the Car Picnic
We are experiencing more calls for car upholstery cleaning. More “car-picnics” are occurring because the restaurants are closed for COVID-19 and people are eating in their cars. Spills and stains are part of the deal when you are eating in your car. Permanent staining of your upholstery can occur if you don’t act fast. What to do?
- Act fast and blot the spill with paper towels as much as you can.
- Make a cleaning solution of 50/50 mixture of liquid dish soap and water.
- Blot with a clean microfiber cloth but try to avoid soaking the stain to avoid water marks.
- Once the stain has lifted, dip clean microfiber cloth into clean water and blot the area to rinse off the cleaning solution.
- Dry the area with a hair dryer.
For more difficult hard-to-remove stains or if you are experiencing any odor, call us at 520-297-4736. Cleaning auto upholstery is one of the many services that Commercial Cleaning and Restoration has to offer.

A Guide to Wearing a Face Masks During Coronavirus
How to put your mask on and off
Always wash your hands first. Don’t touch the fabric part of the mask — that’s essentially the germ filter — and you don’t want to spread whatever germs it has trapped. Use the ear loops or ties to secure your mask and to remove it. The coverage area should go from near the bridge of your nose to down under your chin and stretch about halfway or more toward your ears. Pull the ties and loops so that it fits as snugly as possible against your face. If your mask has pleats, the folded side should be down.
How do you fit your mask properly
- Fit snugly but comfortably against the side of the face
- Be secured with ties or ear loops
- Include multiple layers of fabric
- Allow for breathing without restriction
- Be able to be laundered and machine dried without damage or change to shape
If you are using a mask right 90% of the time, you can still be 100% wrong. Do Not:
- touch the mask once it’s secured on your face
- dangle the mask from one ear
- hang the mask around your neck or your head
- reuse single-use masks
CDC recommendations for how to fit a mask plus instructions for making your own no-sew mask.
