Excellent results on Bath carpet clean

This week saw our Bath technician, Jake spend the majority of the day at a recently vacated 4 bedroomed house in Lansdown. As is often the case, it is not until you move all of your furniture out that you realise that the carpets are in need of a deep clean! As well as general soiling, there were a lot of stains in the house for Jake to tackle.

Once Jake had completed a walk around the house to get a good look at the overall condition of the carpets & noted particular stains that required treating, he could start the cleaning process. This begins with thoroughly vacuuming all of the carpets with a commercial vacuum.

Then a stain treatment is applied to the stains that have been noted & the carpets are covered in an eco-sanitising pre-spray. These solutions are then given time to dwell which helps to breakdown the stains to give them the best chance of lifting.

A rotary agitation machine is then used to apply the cleaning solutions & hot water to the carpets whilst applying pressure to help breakdown the soiling further & release it from the bottom of the pile. For the final part of the cleaning process is the use of the rinse extraction machine, this extracts the water, cleaning products & the soiling from the carpets. In cases when there is a heavy soil load, this part of the process is repeated to ensure maximum results.

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.

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.

WhatsApp Image 2023 12 06 at 13.19.25 b336c5a8

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.

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!

Successful Rug & Upholstery Clean in Chippenham

Earlier this month, our technician, Joanne spent a productive morning as a residential property in Chippenham cleaning 3 sofas & a rug. All the items for cleaning were in good condition but with numerous cats & dogs, the customer wanted a deep clean to get them all cleaner, fresher & sanitised.

To get the cleaning process off to a good start, Joanne gave the sofas a thorough vacuum to lift as much surface debris as possible. Then any visible stains were treated & an eco-sanitising pre-spray was applied. These products are given time to dwell to ensure they break down any stains/dirt.

Once these solutions have done their job, Joanne uses a rotary agitation tool to gentle agitate the fabric & bring any remaining soiling to the surface ready for extraction.

Professional Upholstery Cleaning

The final part of the cleaning process is the traditional rinse extraction, otherwise known as steam cleaning. This machine removes all the remaining soiling, products & water from the upholstery.

Once this particular sofa was cleaned, it was on to the next one …..

WhatsApp Image 2023 10 05 at 16.36.48 28c7688d

As there was lots of cleaning going on, Joanne used air-movers to help speed up the drying process for the customers as shown in the photos above. Once this clean of this sofa was completed, it was on to the next one….

The same method of cleaning was used on all 3 sofas, and the use of the air-movers continued whilst Joanne moved on to tackling the rug.

WhatsApp Image 2023 10 05 at 16.36.49 fe1c612e

As with the sofas, the rug was in good condition, the customer was just looking for a good clean & freshen up. The method of cleaning rugs is similar to that of upholstery although it is generally more time consuming.

Firstly, Joanne laid a couple of tarpaulins down to protect the floor whilst cleaning the rug. In the warmer months, we try to clean rugs outside but this was not possible on this occasion.

Once the rug has been placed on the tarpaulin, it is pre-tested, specifically for dye-fastness. Once it has been confirmed that is ok to proceed with the clean, the rug is vacuumed front & back.

Any stains that have been noted are then treated before a wool safe eco-sanitising pre-spray is applied.

Once these have had time to dwell, the rug is agitated to bring the remaining debris to the surface & then finally the rinse extraction takes place to remove all remaining debris, solutions & water.

WhatsApp Image 2023 10 05 at 16.36.50 3164e341 1

Once this had all been completed, the rug is left to dry. We recommend hanging them over the backs of chairs or bannisters where there is good airflow to help speed the drying process up.

All of the upholstery & the rug has had a full deep clean that is also a green clean which left them all cleaner, fresher & sanitised using eco-friendly products that do not compromise on results. All the products used are also safe for pets & humans!

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.

Positive results on commercial upholstery clean in Cardiff

Our senior technician, Jon spent a hot & sunny Tuesday lunchtime carrying out some commercial upholstery cleaning at the Children’s Hospital for Wales in Cardiff. Having carried out some work for them previously, the asked us to come back & clean some upholstery in the lounge area on one of the wards.

Our process for cleaning the upholstery began with thoroughly vacuuming both of the sofas to remove as much surface debris as possible.

Next up is to treat any stains that we see. It is always helpful if you tell us of any known stains when booking but we will always treat any that we see anyway to help achieve the best results.

The sofas are then covered in an eco-sanitising pre-spray before they are gently agitated to bring any remaining soiling to the surface.
