Eco-friendly Rug Cleaning

Our Rug Cleaning Process

Rug cleaning in Bath Bristol Frome

Stage One:

Before any cleaning can take place, we ensure that the room is as clear as possible. This would normally involve removal of any breakables, then repositioning any furniture to the periphery of the room to allow a reasonable working area.

Once this is done, we are then able to lay down layers of floor protection to ensure that the water we use stays where it is supposed to.

In the image, you can see how the tarpaulin is framing the rug and clearly demarcating the area that our technicians will work within.

Once everything is prepared, the initial dry extraction process is carried out, including substantial “back beating” to ensure maximum dirt, dust, sand & dry soiling has been removed.

Stage Two:

Once your rug has been dry extracted, we will then attend to any spots or stains that are apparent.

Green Man carry a broad range of solutions to treat almost any issue, including tea/coffee, red wine, food, grease, make-up, pet-related problems and more! While we can never guarantee that a stain will be entirely removable, we can almost always improve things without danger of damage.

Stage Three:

After we have attended to any stains, we will apply a wool-safe, eco-friendly solution that will deep clean & sanitise your rug.

Once sprayed down, this solution will benefit from either manual or mechanical agitation to work it evenly throughout the rug. This process can also assist in breaking down areas of stubborn soiling.

Stage Four: 

Once all the initial stages have been thoroughly completed, we will then perform the final stage of the main deep-clean, traditional rinse extraction. This is the process that is often (erroneously) termed steam cleaning

A solution of water (with an acidic element to ph balance your rug fibres) is atomised & sprayed under pressure into the rug, and simultaneously recovered with a powerful vacuum motor.

Stage Five:

Finally, we will perform multiple dry-passes with the cleaning wand to ensure as much water as possible has been recovered before setting up an air mover to generate a current of air beneath your rug. This will accelerate the drying process.

While this is happening, we will attend to the fringes of your rug (if it has any) by applying a solution that will improve their natural whiteness.

After all stages are complete, we will invite you to inspect your rug and arrange for next day collection of the air-mover.

Frome Carpet Cleaning

Whilst carpet cleaning in Frome the other day, we passed this field that had one or two new-born calves tottering about in it. Although carpet cleaning is hard work, the variety of each day and the fact that it takes outside of Frome through the surrounding countryside, is one of its many positives.

One of the key benefits of booking a professional carpet clean from our Frome-based service is the skill & tools that such a service brings. 

Stage 1 of our work is dry extraction using a commercial-grade vacuum cleaner. Usually using a Sebo BS36, this process can recover of 70% of soils latent in the carpet.

Stage 2 is Spot & Stain work. Green Man carry a broad range of solutions to treat the huge variety of stains we encounter. While we cannot guarantee every stain will vanish, we are all fully trained and guarantee to do everything we can to dramatically improve matters.

Stage 4 is application of our eco-friendly pre-spray. This is superior to traditional detergents, free-rinsing & will sanitise all areas.

Stage 5 is agitation. In the image to the left, you see our carpet & upholstery cleaning technician agitating the carpet. This works the solution evenly through the carpet & assists in breaking down stubborn soils.

Stage 6 is usually traditional rinse extraction, sometimes called steam cleaning. Our customers in Frome, Rode, Mells & Bruton are often surprised to learn that it is not steam that we use to rinse a carpet.

In the image, you see our manager wielding a carpet cleaning wand. This tool fires an atomised solution of water and rinse additive into the carpet, which is simultaneously recovered (along with all the soils, greases etc. which we have rendered soluble) by a powerful vacuum unit.

Because our process is eco-friendly, the additive we use carries environmentally harmless encapsulating polymers which deodorise your carpet & leave it more resistant to staining.

As a carpet & upholstery cleaning company operating in Frome, we sometimes need to deal with much heavier levels of soiling than normally found in a domestic environment. For these types of job, we bring along our mobile truck mount machine, the Jaguar 8.4.

Charity Commercial Carpet Clean

On Tuesday night, two of us from the Green Man team conducted a deep-clean of a commercial premises in Bristol. There was no charge for this, as it was for our adopted charity, DHI.

We followed the full professional method of industrial vacuuming, spot/stain treatments, eco-pre-spray, mechanical agitation. After this, any soils present in the carpets were suspended & primed for extraction…

As a carpet cleaner operating in Bristol, it is common for customers to ask for “steam cleaning”. We would term this ‘rinse extraction’ and for this job, we brought our mobile truck mount machine, the Jaguar 8.4.

After nearly four hours’ work, we had removed a tremendous amount of soiling. We wouldn’t have been surprised id the building had risen by a few centimetres. The video below is from this clean…

All in all, the clean went very well. Some of the historic coffee stains failed to lift but (with an acidic stain like this) that was not unsurprising. The following day, we had this feedback from our client:

Hi Jon


We can’t thank you enough!!! The carpet looks amazing! Everyone has come in and gasped! 


As soon as I get a chance I will write you a review.


Thank you again!”
