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!

Excellent Commercial Upholstery Clean at Longleat

It was a welcome return to Longleat Safari Park in Warminster, Wiltshire for our technician Joanne this week to clean some commercial upholstery in one of the coffee shops. We are pleased to visit the park a few times a year to handle the cleaning of some of the upholstery in-order to get it all clean & fresh for their customers.

It was a busy day for Joanne as she had a mixture of twin booths, large booths, 18 chairs & a very long booth that seats 28 people to clean.

She started by using a commercial grade vacuum to remove as much surface debris as possible. Before treating any visible stains & applying an eco-sanitising pre-spray. These solutions are then given time to dwell in-order to break down as much stubborn soiling as possible.

Then it was time to gentle agitate the upholstery. This is where a hand help machine is used to gently agitate the fabric whilst applying a mixture of hot water & cleaning solutions to provide an in-depth clean

The final part of the cleaning process is the traditional rinse extraction. This uses the big blue extraction machine you can see in some of the photos & it extracts all remaining soiling, water & cleaning products. Depending on the severity of soiling, this part of the process can sometimes be repeated.

It was a productive day for our technician Joanne as she followed this cleaning method on all the upholstery with some great results. All of the upholstery was left to dry looking cleaner, fresher & sanitised ready for the next batch of customers.

Excellent results on slate tiles in Monmouth, Wales

Last week saw one of our technicians travel to beautiful Monmouth to carry out a professional clean to some large slate tiles & grout following a successful survey conducted last month. The brief was to carry out a deep clean of the tiled entrance hall & then callback the following day to apply a new seal.

Once all the area has been cleared, an environmentally friendly cleaning solution is applied to the slate & a rotary machine is used to gently agitate the floor. A wet vac is then used to collect the resulting slurry, this part of the process is then repeated.

The grout lines are then cleaned by hand using a grout brush.

At this stage the floor has been taken back to it’s initial finish & is now left to dry naturally.

Our technician then returned the following day to apply a few coats of seal. This protective seal acts as a barrier to spillages & build-ups. Depending on the type of seal chosen, this will often significantly improve the appearance of the tile, intensifying colour and increasing the depth of the grain.

In the images below, you can see the impact the seal has on the area

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.

Successful team work on Upholstery & Carpet cleaning in Bristol

Earlier this week, Pete & Tom spent most of the day working together on some upholstery & carpet cleaning at a residential address in Bristol. The customer had a vast array of upholstery for cleaning as well as some carpets that needed a little attention after a few potty training incidents!

First up was this large faux velvet sofa, as you can see in this picture, Tom is giving it a thorough vacuum to remove as much surface debris as possible.

Next, he will treat any stains that he can see as well as using a eco-sanitising pre spray, these solutions are then given time to dwell to help break up as much soiling & residue as possible.

The upholstery is then gently agitated to work the cleaning solutions & hot water into the fabric to ensure a deep clean.

The final part of the process is the traditional rinse extraction (sometimes known as steam cleaning). This is where all the remaining soiling, products & water are extracted from the upholstery. The sofa is then left to dry naturally.

Whilst Tom was cleaning the sofa shown above, Pete was carrying out the same process on this large cream corner sofa. There were a few more cushions on this one though!

Continuing with the upholstery clean, next up were a selection of armchairs. As before the same cleaning process was used & thankfully the stain treatment worked really well on the stained seat areas of these chairs.

Once all the upholstery had been cleaned & left to dry, it was time to tackle the carpets. On this occasion is was 4 bedroom carpets that needed to be cleaned, with particular attention to some potty training related odours in one bedroom.

The cleaning method followed that of the upholstery cleaning & was a combination of the following:

  • Dry extraction/vacuuming
  • Spot/stain treatments, as necessary 
  • Eco-sanitising pre-spray 
  • Rotary agitation
  • Traditional rinse extraction (sometimes called steam cleaning)

Due to the reported odours, an odour neturalising solution was applied to the offending carpet. This is an environmentally friendly solution that is highly effective against odours associated with bodily fluids.

Satisfying commercial hard floor cleaning in Slimbridge, Gloucestershire

Commercial cleaning at a visitor attraction

Pete and Mike were working together on some commercial hard floor cleaning in beautiful surroundings at a popular visitor attraction in Slimbridge, Gloucestershire this week.

Commercial cleaning with a view

This is a busy tourist attraction where there are hundreds of pairs of feet travelling over the hard floors, often with muddy boots and shoes.

Due to the high level of footfall and soiling these hard floors were in need of a thorough deep clean. There were numerous toilet blocks, and inside visitor areas that were treated to the Green Man deep cleaning process.

Odour neutralisation works were also implemented here after the cleaning, to ensure all the visitor areas were fresh and sanitised and generally a pleasant place to be!

The process for cleaning hard wearing, high traffic areas like these involves a few different elements to achieve the best resullts.

The first step is to remove any loose debris and soil from the surface, this is done by using powerful vacuum cleaners. Next is the application and agitation of an environmentally friendly solution to break down and remove any trodden in dirt. As you can see from the images above, this is done using a rotary agitator to really work the solution into the floor and release any trapped dirt.

The slurry created by the cleaning solutions, water and the lifted dirt is then removed by using a wet vac. As you can see above, this effectively removes all the dirty water from the floor, taking all the loosened grime and dirt with it. The floors are then rinsed again and the water removed once again. Where necessary, if the level of soiling is high and the floors require it, the whole process can be repeated again.

Thanks to Pete and Mike’s hard work, these commercial hard floors are cleaned, sanitised and fresh ready for another season of visitors passing through.

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.

Successful clean of commercial upholstery in Bath

On a sunny Friday earlier this month, our technician Ollie spent a productive few hours cleaning a host of commercial upholstery at a hall in Peasedown St John, Bath. The mornings clean was a result of one of our technicians conducting a successful survey of the chairs a few weeks prior which meant that Ollie was fully prepared & knew what was ahead of him to achieve the best possible results.

Firstly, Ollie laid tarpaulins under the chairs to protect the floor during the cleaning process. Then he began by thoroughly vacuuming the chairs to remove all the surface debris which prepares them for the rest of the cleaning process.

The chairs are then subject to pre-testing which ensures that our technicians know exactly what material they are working with & can match the products accordingly.

Luckily for Ollie, these chairs were in reasonably good condition, however they were still subject to the entire deep cleaning process which means any stains that he noted were treated appropriately. The products were given time to dwell which helps breakdown the deposits as much as possible prior to rinse extraction.

All of the chairs were then covered in an eco-sanitising pre-spray.

The last step in the process is the traditional rinse extraction, otherwise known as steam cleaning. This is where the extraction machine uses a mixture of hot water & products to thoroughly clean the upholstery. It brings any soiling to the surface which is then extracted along with the water & remaining product. This step in the process is sometimes repeated in the event of heavy soiling, although this was not the case on this occasion.

As it was a nice day, Ollie took advantage of the warmer weather & arranged the chairs outside to dry in the sunshine!

Excellent commercial upholstery and stain removal cleaning in Chippenham.

Ollie and Joanne teamed up this week for a large commercial upholstery and stain removal cleaning job in this village hall in Chippenham. There was a vast amount of upholstered chairs, in varying conditions, that needed a thorough, deep clean.

As you can see from the video on the right, Joanne and Ollie got themselves organised with different areas for different aspects of the clean. All whilst making sure the flooring underneath is protected with tarpaulins.

Once set up, Joanne and Ollie could move on to the first step in the process, a thorough vacuum to remove all surface level dirt. After this it was on to finding and treating all the spots and stains.

As you can see from the images above, there are numerous steps in the stain removal process. Depending on what the stain is, which we often do not know, there are different methods to be used.

At home, when you know what the stain has been caused by, we have a helpful guide with some tips and tricks here.

For our technicians, their experience and knowledge of their products alongside pretesting, assists them in knowing where to start with tackling stains.

After all the stains have been addressed and an eco-sanitising pre-spray has been applied, it is time for the rinse extraction.

This is the most deep and powerful phase of the cleaning process and where the embedded dirt and bacteria is removed and addressed.

On a job this large, an air mover is set up to assist in drying these chairs thoroughly whilst others are being cleaned.

This was a large amount of commercial chairs that Joanne and Ollie has brought back to life. The chairs are refreshed and rejuvenated and looking more vibrant in colour.

All the staining has addressed and the chairs are sanitised and ready to be used for new events in the village hall.
