Successful day of carpet & rug cleaning in Bristol

The start of a new week saw two of our technicians spend the whole of Monday in Bristol cleaning a large range of carpets, rugs & doormats for a domestic customer. Thankfully there were no heavy stains or anything of particular concern, just general soiling from a busy household.

Starting with the rugs, the first step in the cleaning process is to pre-test them. This is to establish the materials that the rug is made from but also to check for dye-fastness, as we certainly don’t want any colours to run during the clean!

Once this has been done & the technicians know exactly what they are working with, the rugs are placed on tarpaulins to protect the floor & are then thoroughly vacuumed front & back to remove any surface debris.

Next, any notable stains are treated & an eco-sanitising pre-spray is applied. These solutions are then given time to dwell to help breakdown as much soiling as possible.

Our technician then gently agitates the rug which works the cleaning solutions & hot water into the rug whilst continuing to break up any stubborn soiling.

The final part of the clean is the traditional rinse extraction. This is where the cleaning solutions, hot water & remaining soiling are extracted from the rug.

The cleaning process was then repeated many times over as the customer had 8 rugs & 5 doormats to be cleaned!

As there were so many to be cleaned & our technicians were there all day, they used an air mover to help speed up the drying process.

Once the rugs were cleaned & left to dry, it was time to start on the carpet cleaning. The exact same cleaning method used for the rugs was also used on the carpets.

The cleaning method used on the rugs, doormats & carpets represents a full deep-clean and was also a green clean.

Great rug cleaning results in beautiful Castle Combe

Our technician, Joanne spent a productive few hours in Castle Combe last week cleaning some large colourful rugs. Both rugs had been the victims of flood water & although they were now dry, they were in need of a deep clean to remove any unsavoury bacteria & odours.

The customer had a nice big kitchen that Joanne could work in with easy access to water & electricity. The very first step in rug cleaning is to lay tarpaulins underneath them to protect the floor from getting wet.

Then we carry out a pre test of the material to ensure they will be no dye migration during the cleaning process.

Once we know what we are working with, the next step is to thoroughly vaccum the rugs front & back using a commercial grade vacuum cleaner.

Then it is time to apply a stain treatment. Any stains that the technician can see have a stain solution applied as well as an eco-sanitising pre-spray. These are then left to dwell to help ensure as much of the soiling is broken down as possible.

We then agitate the rug, this works the hot water & cleaning products into the rug to provide a thorough clean & help break up any stubborn soiling.

The last part of the cleaning process is the traditional rinse extraction. This machine removes all the remaining soiling, water & cleaning solutions from the rug providing a deep clean.

With rugs such as the one above that have fringes, these are also cleaned & regroomed.

As one of these rugs was particularly large, our technician cleaned this one first & then used an air-mover to help with the drying process. This was then left for the customer overnight to speed up the drying process for both rugs.

Another great job completed by Joanne & another happy customer!
