Communal hallway clean and an impressive carpet repair in Bristol.

Our Green Man team were called to a communal hallway and staircase in flats in Bristol last week that were in need of a deep, green clean. There was also significant damage to one of the stairs that needed a repair. Two of our technicians, Jon and Ollie, went along to these private flats and got to work for the morning to bring this communal area back to its best again making a much nicer welcome home for the residents.

The stair above was in need of repair after some furniture being moved in had caused some fraying and rips. You can see the process above where all the damaged material is stripped back and then a donor piece is fitted in its place. A donor piece can be an off-cut from when the original carpet was fitted, or a piece can be taken from inside a cupboard or an out of the way area to allow a more noticeable area to be repaired. The donor carpet here was an off cut from fitting so was in brand new condition and able to be used for the repair to make the stair look as good as new again.

After the repair, the carpets were given our deep, eco-friendly clean. Stairs can be tricky to clean due to small, cramped spaces with limited room for machinery. We use our water claw to ensure all the small areas are worked into and brought back to their best. Communal stairways and hallways often have a lot of heavy footfall from tenants and visitors so it was vital to get up all of the embedded dirt. You can even see the progress in the videos with the colour change in the carpet.

Our technicians worked hard to remove the marks from the carpets that have been caused by repeated footfall in the same areas. Our process of stain removal, rotary agitation and rinse extraction brought these carpets back to life and more resistant to future staining.

Iron Burn Carpet Repair

The image above shows a “classic” iron burn. There’s no disguising what caused this & there’s no way the landlord is going to miss it. If you are a tenant and are concerned about losing a large chunk of your deposit over a moment’s distraction, get in touch.

As long as you have a similar (or preferably larger) size of spare carpet somewhere, we can help. This donor piece can also be cut from a cupboard or from under the stairs, if this is all there is.

While we cannot promise that the repair will be i n v i s i b l e, we will do our utmost to carry out a professional carpet repair so that it is as seamless as possible.

Once the work is complete, the insert is bonded to the carpet around it, not simply glued to the floor! This ensures a durable & secure repair that should last as long as the carpet surrounding it.

Sisal repair at Kenilworth Castle

A short while ago, English Heritage were in touch with us to ask whether we would be able to carry out repairs to some sisal flooring in Kenilworth Castle. Standard carpet cleaning can be challenging, but sisal is often extremely tricky & is impossible to repair “invisibly”.

We were given some images & measurements, so set about sourcing some replacement carpet & arranged a date to carry out the work.

The work was in the Keep of the castle, and involved patching up a few areas where display units had previously stood. The whole while we were there, fully conscious that we were within a building that had stood for over 700 years!

The brief was to create an insert of sisal with a flap to allow access to electrical sockets beneath.

After the work had been completed to a satisfactory standard, we were really delighted to be given a socially-distanced tour of the grounds, as part of our chaperone’s daily checks…

One of the great aspects of our work is the people we meet & the places it takes us to. It was a genuine pleasure to work alongside the conservators for English Heritage.

Days like this don’t come along too often, but it’s a memory we will cherish.

Professional carpet repair in Bristol

A few weeks ago, Green Man were contacted by a tenant of a property in Bristol. She was very concerned that her pet rabbit had damaged the carpets beyond repair. We arranged to conduct a survey and inspected the damage-

A successful repair will depend on a donor piece of carpet. This can be either a section of spare carpet kept back from the original installation, or it can be a small piece removed from a carpeted cupboard or something similar.

In the following images, you see our lead technician cutting donor pieces of carpet & installing them in place of the areas of damage…

In the last of the three photos, it is fair to say that you can not see the carpet insert at all. The carpet in question may need a deep-clean, but can you see the edges of the new piece?

Our carpet repair services include all our branches from Frome to Frampton, Bath to Bampton.

If you have any questions, or would like to send some images to see if we can repair your carpet, please use our contact page.
