Stone floor clean & re-seal near Frome.

Last week, three of our technicians attended a large converted barn near Frome to carry out a variety of professional cleaning services. The brief was to remove all furniture & deep-clean the travertine tiles & grout on the ground floor, then apply new seal. As well as this, we were required to clean a pure wool lounge carpet & several rugs, including a dhouri.

The initial job here was clearly moving a significant amount of furniture…

When the day began, it was a beautiful Spring day – Later on, we were glad we brought our extra large tarpaulin!

Once the main area had been cleared, we applied an environmentally friendly stone cleaning solution to the travertine & used a rotary machine to agitate the floor. We used a wet vac to pick up the resulting slurry, then repeated the process. We cleaned the grout lines manually with a grout brush.

After this process was complete, we left the floor to dry. As you can see, at this stage the stone has been taken back to its initial matt finish-

While the stone dried, it was time to address the living room wool carpet & the rugs.

After the initial vacuum, a different eco-solution was applied to the wool.

This works at a nano level and sanitised the wool, as well as conditioning it.

Apart from a small area of permanent staining, the area responded beautifully well.

The dhouri rug had absorbed a considerable amount of soiling, so required significant agitation prior to the rinse extraction stage.

After stone tiles & grout have been deep-cleaned, Green Man will always specify at least a top-up coat of seal.  Most of the time, stone flooring will benefit from a full re-seal involving 2 – 5 coats of a protective seal to protect the stone from spillages & build-ups. Depending on the type of seal chosen, this will often significantly improve the appearance of the stone, intensifying colour and increasing the depth of the grain.

In the images below, you can see the impact a satin seal has on the area.

Wool carpet clean on The Circus, Bath

As those of you who live in Bath will know, the logistics of parking and working in our city can be interesting.

Operating a carpet cleaning company in Bath presents its own particular challenges so, over the years we have been in business, we have developed various strategies to ensure we can deliver a high quality eco-friendly deep-cleaning service without compromises.

This particular job was the result of a pigeon being trapped in a top floor flat. While it was contained in the property, it caused quite a mess & the owner was keen to have the carpets cleaned & decontaminated quickly. We organised a survey the same day as the initial call and were able to book the work within two working days.

On the day of the clean, our team collected keys from the nominated estate agents. If pre-arranged, this is a service we can easily provide for our customers in Bath.

After we had picked up the keys, we parked temporarily outside & unloaded.

You can see here that we have specified one of our powerful compact commercial machines, owing to the number (and narrowness) of the stairs here.

The balance between powerful kit & portability is key when working in most of our locations.

For this reason, we carry a wide range of machines & equipment to enable us to deliver the flexibility our customers require.

The quality of the wool carpet here was excellent. This type of carpet responds extremely well to our preferred eco-friendly carpet cleaning solution. It has a plant-based formula & will sanitise & condition the carpet, as well as deep-clean.
