Your eco-friendly apartment in Foster City provides you with everything you may need for comfortable, luxurious, modern-day living, and designer-selected carpets are undoubtedly part of the charm of our apartments at The Plaza.

If you want to stay true to an eco-friendly lifestyle while pampering your designer carpets, consider this green cleaning alternatives:

  • Frequent vacuuming can help keep your carpets clean. Not only can it prevent dirt from reaching deep into your carpet’s fibers, it also reduces the need for deep cleaning with aggressive chemicals.
  • Say goodbye to the petroleum-based solvents, and stay simple and eco-friendly by using vinegar! Add some water to vinegar, or use undiluted vinegar alone, to remove the majority of the most common carpet stains, including chocolate, coffee, and soda spills.
  • Cornmeal is an excellent way of treating and soaking up greasy stains. Just sprinkle some cornmeal on the stain and wipe it with some vinegar and water.
  • Your lovely carpets are prone to many kinds of stains, from food spills to messy crayon stains, and having a pet around only causes additional troubles. Baking soda and vinegar are excellent “green” ways to deal with pet stains, as well!
