Outstanding coffee stain removal results in Bristol

Life can be messy and accidents happen, this home in Bristol was no exception. As you can see from the image above, a cup of coffee had caused a real problem for this family. Coffee stain removal can be a very tricky process and despite all our best efforts there are no guarantees coffee stains will come out. The tannins and acidity in coffee can permanently damage the carpet fibres. Luckily for this customer, Jon was able to work some magic and you will see the incredible results he has been able to achieve.

Coffee stain deep clean in Bristol

Jon got to work to try to remove this coffee stain. The first step in the process for treating this stain was to apply a carpet safe reducing bleach. This was left to dwell and work into the carpet, before being rinsed out thoroughly. As you can see from the image on the left, this had a great impact.

Once this had all been rinsed out, the whole carpet was then fully deep cleaned again using an eco friendly cleaning solution.

As you can see, Jon has achieved some impressive results here with this coffee stain removal. Despite a very large, and very dense patch of coffee the carpet is now looking much better and the family have saved themselves from having to replace the whole carpet, in turn also saving another decent carpet going into landfill.

There are some stain removal tips and tricks that you can use at home, a professional clean is always best, but we appreciate that times are tough at the moment and you can read some hints and tips here for removing stains in your own home.

Successful commercial carpet & upholstery clean in Bristol apartment block

We are no strangers to the vast Number One Bristol apartment complex as we have been cleaning their carpets & upholstery on an annual basis for the past few years as well as ad hoc cleaning when the need arises. Before the annual carpet clean, we still conduct a survey to see how the carpets have faired since our previous visit & to observe any areas of particular concern. As with all our surveys, this allows us to put together a comprehensive plan to bring out the best in the carpets in a time efficient manner.

On this occasion we arranged for a team of technicians to spend 3 full days cleaning the communal carpets over 14 floors as well as some upholstery in the lobby of the building.

As you can imagine with an apartment building of this size, it gets some heavy footfall throughout the communal areas so there was general soiling to deal with as well as some food & drink stains.

Our team tackled one floor at a time using our tried & tested process which includes a combination of the following;

  • Dry extraction/vacuuming – Thoroughly vacuuming the carpets first to pick up any surface debris
  • Spot/stain treatments, as necessary – Applying stain treatments as necessary & allowing them to dwell to loosen up as much of the stain as possible
  • Eco-sanitising pre-spray – Applying an effective santisier that is tough on dirt & bacteria
  • Rotary agitation – Using a rotary machine which agitates the carpets to bring any debris to the surface. This machine also applies a cleaning solution to the carpets & agitates it deep into the pile to provide a thorough clean
  • Traditional rinse extraction (sometimes called steam cleaning) – This final part of the process extracts all the remaining dirt, water & cleaning solutions from the carpet. In some cases where there is a high level of soiling, this step can be repeated to ensure as much as possible is extracted

Great results from our fabulous team on the carpets, the overall outcome saw most of the stains lifted & a large amount of soiling removed. Conducting an annually clean like we do in these particular premises really does help to keep on top of the soiling/staining which in-turn extends the lift expectancy of a carpet.

However, our team were not finished yet & also had some upholstery to clean in the lobby of the building. There was a curved sofa & a chaise that both needed some attention. The chaise in particular looked a little tired & soiled as it was mainly used as a table for incoming deliveries.

We adopted the same cleaning method as that used on the carpets but swapped the rotary agitation machine for a hand held tool. These now look much cleaner & fresher & offer a nicer place for visitors to sit, hopefully the introduction of a table in the lobby will now prevent the parcels being left on the sofas!

Huge thanks to our amazing team for their hard work over the 3 days, it was a big job in this warm weather but they rose to the challenge perfectly (thanks for the lift selfies too!)

Stunning carpet cleaning results in Slimbridge, Gloucestershire.

Earlier this month, Pete was back in Slimbridge to carry out another domestic clean. This time there were some carpets and runners in need of the Green Man cleaning process.

Pete had already been to this property to conduct an in depth survey, so we knew exactly what was required and could get straight to work. The first stage of the Green Man cleaning process is to thoroughly vacuum using a professional vacuum cleaner to remove all the loose dirt and soil from the carpets and runners.

After the vacuuming, Pete could move on to treating any spots and stains and applying an eco sanitising pre-spray.

Staining can be a huge problem in domestic properties, from pets, children and spillages there can be lots to tackle.

It is always helpful for us to know what has caused a stain so we can try to use the most appropriate solutions to remove it.

Once the stains have been addressed, Pete could move on to using the rotary agitator to work an environmentally friendly cleaning solution into the fibres to ensure a deep down clean and to remove any embedded dirt. The last step in the process is traditional rinse extraction, also known as steam cleaning. Rinse extraction ensures that the carpets are hygienic and bacteria is addressed. Bacteria can cause odours so removing this is not only crucial ensuring carpets are clean but are odour free and fresh.
