Successful Commercial carpet clean at Longleat

Another week, another visit to Longleat for our technician, Joanne. This time it was to clean the carpet in the sweet shop, we have cleaned this before, but due to the huge amount of footfall this shop receives, it requires a professional deep clean a few times a year.

The carpet in the sweet shop doesn’t look like carpet at all. It is a material called Flotex, which is a completely synthetic material that can be printed on to give it many different appearances. Owing to the huge number of fibres per metre on Flotex, it is able to conceal an enormous soil-load

Effective vacuuming will remove up to 79% of dry soils, so this was an important first stage of our cleaning process.

An eco-friendly pre-spray was then applied to the floor before our technician used a rotary machine & a CRB (contra-rotating brush) machine to agitate the cleaning solution & further break up any stubborn soiling, this helps ensure that the rinse extraction draws out as much as the debris as possible.

Lastly, an encapsulating solution was applied & brushed into the carpet using the rotary agitation machine, this aids carpet maintenance as it surrounds each soil particle and crystallizes it so it can’t attract other soils. The encapsulated soil particles release from the carpet fibres and are then removed by normal vacuuming, which will generally be done by the on site cleaning staff at regularly scheduled times.

The carpet was certainly looking cleaner as a result of Joanne’s hard work & was all ready to welcome the next lot hungry customers to the shop.

Outstanding results on commercial carpet clean in Cheltenham

A few weeks before Christmas, we were contacted by a hostel in Cheltenham who were thinking about having the carpets cleaned in the communal areas. With any commercial enquires like this, we always recommend arranging for one of our trained technicians to come out & conduct a short survey before suppling you with a quote. This enables us to assess the condition & specific requirements of the carpets which means we can tailor the clean to suit your business needs & provide you with a comprehensive quote.

Within a week of the initial enquiry, our technician Pete visited the property & carried out a survey of all the carpets & provided the business with two separate quotes as they were deciding how they wanted to tackle the clean.

They decided to go ahead with having all the communal carpets cleaned rather than just the ground floor, and this week, less than 1 month from making contact, Pete returned with the help of Mike to carry out the clean.

The brief was to clean all 4.5 floors of stairs & hallways, most of which were heavily stained.

Commercial Carpet Cleaning

Communal area carpets endure a high level of wear over time. Outdoor soiling is tracked in on shoes, spills occur & because the space is no single persons responsibility, the dirt rapidly accumulates. This was certainly the case here, due to the heavy footfall & the magnitude of some of the staining on these carpets, a traditional rinse extraction was the method used to deliver the best possible results.

The first step in the process is to use a commercial vacuum to thoroughly vacuum the carpets to remove as much surface debris as possible.

Next, any notable stains are treated & an eco-sanitising pre-spray is applied to the carpets. These solutions are then given time to dwell in-order to break down the soiling.

Once sufficient time has elapsed for the stain treatments to have worked, the rotary agitation machine is used to gently agitate the carpets using hot water & cleaning solutions. This provides a thorough clean & also helps bring loosened soiling to the surface ready for rinse extraction.

The final part of the cleaning process is the traditional rinse extraction. This is where all the remaining soiling, water & cleaning solutions are removed from the carpets. As you can see from the photos either side, this tried & tested cleaning method bought out some truly amazing results.

Great results on commercial carpets & upholstery in Cheltenham

On Tuesday evening, two of our technicians were booked to clean commercial carpets & upholstery at The Brewery Quarter in Cheltenham. This was the result of a successful survey back in September which enabled us to provide the company with a quote & cleaning plan tailored to their requirements.

The brief was to clean seven short flights of stairs, plus all the small landings & turns in-between plus two large landings. As you can imagine these areas have a lot of foot traffic & would certainly benefit from a professional deep clean.

The first step (pardon the pun!) was to thoroughly vacuum all of these areas to remove any surface debris before they applied stain treatments & eco-sanitising pre-spray to them. These solutions were then given time to dwell so that they can break down & loosen as much dirt, grease & stains as possible.

The next step is to use rotary agitation to further loosen any remaining soiling as well as working the cleaning solutions into the carpets to allow for a rigorous clean.

The final part of our cleaning process is the traditional rinse extraction. This is where we use hot water to extract any remaining soiling or product residue from the carpets.

Once the carpets had been successfully tackled, it was time to start work on the upholstery. There were seven office chairs with a heavy soil load that were subject to the above cleaning method to ensure a good level of clean.

Once the clean was successfully completed, the carpets & upholstery were left to dry naturally overnight so everything was clean & dry for the office workers to return the following day. Upon completion, all of the carpets & upholstery have received the full professional cleaning method & have been sanitised, deodorised & left more resistant to staining as part of the process

Great results on a commercial carpet clean in Gloucester

Our Gloucester based technician visited these commercial premises at the end of October to survey some of their office carpets. Following on from that successful survey, Pete went back last week & spent a few hours carrying out the commercial carpet clean.

The boardroom carpet was the first part of the job that Pete tackled. As you can see from the adjacent photo, that were quite a few soiled areas from shoes around the table & the carpet in general was in need of a thorough clean.

After starting the cleaning process by using a commercial vacuum to pick up as much surface soiling as possible, Pete then applied stain treatments & eco-sanitising pre spray to the carpet.

Once these had been given time to dwell, Pete used the rotary agitation machine to gently agitate the cleaning solutions into the carpet and help bring any soiling to the surface.

The final part of the cleaning process is the traditional rinse extraction of the carpets. This is where all the remaining water, cleaning solutions & debris are removed from the carpet leaving them cleaner, fresher & sanitised.

Next up was to tackle the stairs, as you can see from the photos, these had been subjected to a high amount of foot traffic & were certainly in need of a deep clean.

The cleaning process that Pete used in the boardroom was repeated on the stairs & produced some great results.

Fabulous results on a commercial clean in Bath

We were recently contacted by the manager of a local branch of Specsavers, as they were interested in having the carpets & hard flooring cleaned in the store. As with most commercial enquires, it benefits to conduct a short survey so we can determine the condition & specific requirements of the flooring. We can then provide you with a comprehensive quote & a cleaning plan tailored to each job. All surveys are carried out by our trained technicians.

Following on from a successful survey, two of our technician returned this week to carry out the clean after the shop had closed to carry out a deep clean of the carpets & amtico flooring.

Our technicians made a start in the exam rooms at the rear of the premises which were all carpeted.

The cleaning process includes;

Dry extraction/vacuuming – All the carpets are thoroughly vacuumed using a commercial vacuum cleaner to remove as much surface debris as possible.

Spot/stain treatments – Any visible stains are treated & the solutions are given time to dwell so that they can break down as much of the stain as possible.

WhatsApp Image 2023 11 03 at 10.01.58 7169b8b6

The next step in the carpet cleaning process is;

Eco-sanitising pre-spray – This is applied to all of the carpets & as above, it is given time to dwell to assist further with the breakdown on stains & residues.

Rotary Agitation – This was carried out using a machine that gently agitates the carpets whilst delivering hot water & cleaning solutions deep into the carpet to provide a thorough clean.

The last step of the process is then the traditional rinse extraction, sometimes known as steam cleaning. The extraction machine removes all the remaining soiling, water & solutions from the carpet. This process represents a full deep clean which leaves the carpets cleaner, fresher & sanitised whilst still being a green clean.

Once the carpet clean had been completed, it was time to move onto the hard flooring which in this instance was amtico flooring. Amtico is a type of vinyl flooring although it is manufactured differently to standard vinyl flooring. The finished article often has a close resemblance to wood or stone.

As you can see in this photo, it is a wood effect floor which due to a high volume of foot traffic through the store had a high volume of soling ingrained into it.

The cleaning process for a hard floor such as this follows the same method listed above for carpet cleaning. However when it comes to the rotary agitation aspect, a soft brush or pad is attached to the bottom of the machine.

On this occasion it was a soft brush that was attached which gently washes the floor using the cleaning solutions.

As some of the next few photos show, a high level of soiling was removed from these floors which resulted in an impressive difference.

Outstanding results, well done team!

Superb carpet cleaning at Thornbury Castle

It is always nice when you get repeat business, so it was lovely to head back to Thornbury Castle in Bristol to carry out some carpet cleaning earlier this week.

Following a successful survey carried out by one of our trained technicians back in July, this week saw a team of 3 clean the carpets in the dining room, hallway & bedroom.

This beautiful castle was once owned by Henry VIII & although the carpets are not quite that old, they still needed some tlc to get them back to looking their best!

These stunning wool carpets get a lot of footfall so our traditional rinse extraction method of cleaning was best suited to achieve optimal results.

WhatsApp Image 2023 09 27 at 09.35.32.4

The process starts with preparing the carpets by thoroughly vacuuming them to lift any surface debris, we then treat any stains that we see, allowing the solutions time to dwell to help the break down of any stubborn soiling.

Next, we apply an eco-sanitising pre-spray before using a rotary agitation machine to gently agitate the carpets & bring any remaining soiling to the surface.

Once all of the above steps have been followed, the carpets are ready for the final part of the process which is the traditional rinse extraction (steam cleaning).

This removes any remaining water, cleaning products & soiling from the carpets. Sometimes if the carpets have shown significant soiling then we may repeat this part of the process to ensure we achieve the best results.

Here is a great little video showing some of the team carrying out the rinse extraction part of the cleaning process.

You may notice the use of air-movers in this video, due to this being a commercial premises we had these running to speed up the drying process so that the customers could use the rooms as soon as possible.

Hugely successful commercial team clean at Hartpury College

Back in April, we were contacted by Hartpury University & College based in Gloucester enquiring about commercial carpet cleaning for their accommodation blocks. It was arranged for one of our technicians to go & conduct a survey of the carpets, as a setting that has approx. 4,000 students, there was a lot of ground to cover. For such a large scale job, a survey was imperative & allowed us to put together a comprehensive quote & plan in place. A job of this size also required a whole team effort which meant that by contacting us months before they required the cleaning, it allowed us the time to arrange this with ease.

Our first day of the team clean was on the 20th July, this was the start of 14 scheduled visits across 3 months. Each visit had a varying amount of technicians based on the size of which accommodation block they were cleaning that day.

The team quickly found their groove, deciding that the most effective way of tackling the carpets was by splitting into two teams & dividing each block into two. Not only was this a little less daunting than tackling whole blocks on their own but also was more time effective.

WhatsApp Image 2023 07 26 at 10.48.45

The process involved with cleaning the carpets here was a low moisture clean (or encapsulation) which can be highly effective on medium to lightly soiled carpets. It delivers a good level of cleaning with quick drying times of less than an hour.

The first step is thoroughly vacuuming the carpets with an industrial vacuum to pick up as much dry soiling & particles as possible, then the technicians will then treat any stains that they see.

Next is the application of the encapsulation solution which is given time to dwell to help lift any stubborn soiling before a low moisture bonnet clean using the rotary machine.

This final step lifts the moisture & soiling with special bonnet pads that are attached to the bottom of the rotary machine. This type of clean leaves the carpets cleaner, fresher & more resistant to staining.

We have conducted cleans here before but we still attended prior to the clean to conduct a survey. This allows us a chance to discuss with the customer their requirements as well as assess the carpets and logistical considerations such as access to the premises and hot water and electricity.

We then send a formal quotation to our commercial customers for them to consider and accept. This ensures the customer and the team are all aware of exactly what needs doing and there are no misunderstandings.

As you can see from the images, there was a large amount of upholstery that needed cleaning, once it has been cleaned and as much moisture has been removed as possible, the cushions are left propped to increase air flow around the surfaces to increase drying time.

The team worked tirelessly on this large commercial job over three days to clean all of the upholstery and carpeted areas in this boarding school and bring them back to their best. The carpets and sofas are rejuvenated and freshened ready for the new intake of students to arrive soon.

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.

Commercial carpet cleaning

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.

WhatsApp Image 2023 06 08 at 11.20.34.5
WhatsApp Image 2023 06 08 at 11.20.34.2

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!)

Second superb commercial carpet clean in an office and shop in Bath

You might remember that earlier in the week Ollie and Joanne achieved some incredible results for a commercial customer at their offices in Bath. The team cleaned some carpets as well as some hard flooring. You can read the blog about the first visit here.

Ollie and Joanne have returned to this commercial customer later on in this beautifully sunny week to address the carpets and hard floors in their shop premises.

As Ollie had been to survey the premises prior to booking the work, the team knew exactly what was required and after a quick walk around they were able to get to work.

Office carpet cleaning in Bath

Following the Green Man carpet cleaning process the team got started on the office carpets above the shop.

After a thorough vacuum, treating any spot stains and applying an eco sanitising pre-spray it was time for rotary agitation.

Rotary agitation helps to loosen deep down embedded dirt and assists in improving the appearance of any flattened pile.

As you can see from the image on the left the carpets in the upstairs office above the shop have come up beautifully and look as good as new.

Green Man team commercial carpet clean in Bath
Commercial stairs carpet cleaning in Bath

Ollie and Joanne have done a terrific job for this commercial customer, their offices and their shop premises now have carpets that are refreshed and rejuvenated. The hard floors in both premises have also received the Green Man treatment and the team achieved some great results. You can read more about our commercial hard floor cleaning here.

Asides from what is pictured here, Joanne and Ollie also had some sisal carpets to clean in the shop. Sisal is a natural fibre derived from the sisal plant. Whilst it is hard wearing and durable, it cannot be cleaned with our standard procedure.

Sisal fibres are prone to collapse and browning when wet so they need to be cleaned using a method known as Very Low Moisture cleaning.

It involves the application of a cleaning compound that contains cleaning agents, you can see this in the image on the right.

Sisal cleaning

This process lightly refreshes the sisal, improves the lustre and deodorises the sisal.
