Terrific carpet and hard floor results achieved for a Preschool in Thornbury, Bristol

Two of our technicians, Pete and Sam, visited this Preschool in Thornbury, Bristol where the carpets and hard floors were in need of a good clean. They both resisted the urge to play with all the toys and got to work on the deep clean of the carpets.

For the carpets, the team used our preferred eco-friendly deep cleaning process.

This includes;

Pre-testing

Vacuuming

Spot/Stain treatments

An eco sanitising pre-spray

Rotary Agitation

Traditional deep rinse extraction

As you can imagine, a Preschool carpet receives a lot of wear and tear, on the left you can see the carpet before cleaning and on the right you can see the results our technicians managed to achieve.

Hygiene is crucially important in a Preschool where there are lots of young children playing on the floor, the Preschool can now rest assured that any nasties have been removed and the carpets are now a nice sanitary place to play.

Pete and Sam then moved on to the hard wooden flooring areas of the Preschool to give them a deep clean. After a thorough sweep and vacuum, they are cleaned with a powerful, yet environmentally friendly cleaning solution using the rotary agitators to release any embedded dirt and grime.

This slurry is then extracted, rinsed and dried.

The images show how much hidden dirt has been removed and the floors are now ready for play again!

We also gave the bathroom and toilet flooring areas an extensive clean. Accidents happen, especially in a Preschool environment, so it was especially important to make bring these floors back to a very high level of cleanliness.

Fantastic odour neutralisation results in Gloucester.

Pete was called to assist in this property in Gloucester where there were significant odour issues due to cat urine.

The first step in successful odour neutralisation is locating the source of the odour so it can be addressed. This is not always an easy process but is vital to ensure the odour can be successfully neutralised. Without addressing the source, the odour will persist.

Once the source of the odour is located, the area is thoroughly cleaned to remove any bacteria and soiling. This is what you can see Pete doing here using the water claw for a deep rinse extraction. Once all areas of the source of the odour are thoroughly cleaned we can be confident the area is decontaminated.

The source of the problem in this instance was carpets, hard floors and upholstery, where the surfaces were holding onto the odour molecules.

After all these areas had received a thorough deep clean, it was time to move on to tackling the airborne odour contaminants.

Where there are multiple sources of the odour, there are gases released into the air meaning the whole area needs to be deodorised.

Once all the cleaning is done, Pete used a ULV (Ultra low volume) fogger with a water-based odour counteractant to tackle the airborne odour molecules.

This fogging ensures all areas are decontaminated and are left smelling fresh and clean.

We recommend after fogging the property is left empty for a short while to allow the product to dissipate and get to all the areas it needs to without being disturbed.

We are IICRC trained in odour neutralisation, you can read more about this accreditation here.

Pete has done a fantastic job, the source has been decontaminated and the odour addressed meaning the home will be a much more sanitary, and fresh smelling place to be.

Please do get in touch if you have a persistent odour in your home, or commercial premises that needs addressing. We offer this service in Bath, Bristol, Swindon, Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Cardiff.

Communal area clean & rug cleaning in Pontcanna, Cardiff


Yesterday’s carpet & rug cleaning project on Cathedral Rd., Pontcanna required some careful planning…

In some ways, carpet & rug cleaning are similar processes, involving a combination of:

  • Pre-testing
  • Dry extraction/ vacuuming
  • Stain treatments
  • Application of environmentally friendly cleaning solution
  • Gentle agitation
  • Rinse extraction (sometimes called “steam cleaning”)

On this job, there were a lot of stairs to be cleaned. This meant that we situated the powerful extraction machine at the foot of the stairs, then ran a series of hoses up through the house – this meant that we could clean both the carpets & rugs without having to carry any heavy equipment upstairs.

While we’re out & about delivering carpet cleaning & carpet repairs around the Pontcanna area of Cardiff, we see many of these beautiful Victorian homes. Because of the large scale rooms, they can be challenging to maintain. By scheduling an annual carpet clean, you will find that you significantly improve the longevity of your carpets, as well as rugs & upholstery.


Hand cleaning your rugs in situ

Eco friendly rug cleaning in Cardiff

After the initial thorough vacuum, we protect the floor using several tarpaulins. After a suitable eco/ wool safe pre-spray has been applied and dwelt in the pile for sufficient time, we use a fine jet hand tool to carefully recover all the suspended soils within the pile of a rug. This method ensures attention to detail, as well as a high quality finish. Hand tools such as this are also used for upholstery cleaning.


Force drying using air-movers

Because we carry out flood restoration services in South Wales, we hold a large stock of commercial drying equipment. In the image above, you see one of our modern, energy efficient air movers being used to force a band of air across the surface of the cleaned rug. This accelerates the drying process considerably.


An honour guarantee

Green Man offer a solid honour guarantee on all our work. This ensures a free call-back to address any concerns.
