Successful & effective commercial carpet deep clean

On a warm & sunny Saturday, two of our technicians were hard at work at a commercial studio in Bath. The bright & contemporary office requested a deep clean of their carpets throughout to remove some visible stains as well as ensuring they were clean & sanitised.

It was great to return to a office space where we have cleaned the carpets on a yearly basis over the past 3 years. Giving the carpets a thorough deep clean once a year keeps them looking better for longer.

This office & studio had a mixture of carpets including some nice bright & bold designs which were a little grubby in places. High traffic areas such as reception, walkways & under desks are prone to dirt building up & benefit from a yearly deep clean.

There are many steps involved in our process of giving your carpets a successful deep clean, one of those is to treat any stains, as necessary. As you can see in the left hand picture above, there was some heavy staining in this area due to a recent flood, however successfully pre-treating this meant that the finished result left it looking as good as new. Both of the pictures shown above demonstrate how effective each step of the process is, including the final task of traditional rinse extraction which produces very satisfying results & is successful in restoring the carpet to it’s original brightness.

Deep clean of stunning quarry tiles in Winterbourne Monkton.

We were lucky enough to return to this beautiful cottage in Winterbourne Monkton that we did some carpet, rug and upholstery cleaning at last week. This time we were asked to give these beautiful quarry tiles a deep clean and a bit of TLC.

Hard floors can often be a two technician job, as this one was. There are lots of processes that really benefit from two pairs of hands!

Our process for hard flooring typically includes;

– Dry extraction/vacuuming
– Spot/stain treatments, as necessary
– Pre-spray specific to the type of flooring
– Rotary & oscillating pad agitation
– Rinse extraction 
– Finishing touches (usually buff & dry)
– Sealing where necessary

The next day, once the floors are completely dry, Joanne reattended to seal these floors. This will give them lasting protection and increase resistance to staining and soiling. As you can see from the images below it also makes them look stunning.

Visit to a beautiful cottage for carpets, rugs and upholstery cleaning.

This week we have had the pleasure of visiting this beautiful cottage in Winterbourne Monkton for a variety of cleaning jobs. This beautiful location and sunny weather not only makes any job a lot more pleasurable but also accelerates drying time.

Our technician got to work cleaning the carpets, using our eco-friendly, deep cleaning techniques. In the picture on the left, you can see the rinse extraction process bringing this carpet back to life. This is the final step in the deep cleaning process after pre-testing, vacuuming, spot and stain treatment, an eco-sanitising pre spray and rotary agitation. All of these steps combined are what help us to achieve our exceptional results.

Below you can see the small water claw being used to give the upholstery the same deep clean.

The rugs were up next and what a beautiful view our technician had to enjoy whilst using the rotary agitator on this rug to remove all the dirt trapped in the rug fibres.

Our process for rugs is similar to carpets and upholstery, however there are a few extra steps. These include vacuuming both sides, back-dusting, wool safe pre treatments and fringe cleaning. The dyes used in rugs can often be more troublesome in terms of dye migration so extra care needs to be taken by our experienced technicians to preserve the rugs vibrancy and to deliver a thorough clean.

With the weather on our side, these large rugs were able to be left out in the garden to dry out after the deep cleaning process. Usually, we would allow 2-6 hours for the rugs to be fully dry, and sometimes large rugs also require an air mover to ensure they fully dry out. Being able to be placed out in the sunshine will speed this process up considerably, and no air mover was needed.

If you want to take advantage of the beautiful weather we are having at the moment to accelerate drying time for your own carpet, rug or upholstery cleaning, please use the contact button below to book in.

How to keep your carpets looking great for longer.

When thinking about maintaining the upkeep of your home, we often think about decorating, garden makeovers, possibly a kitchen or bathroom renovation but the flooring, specifically the carpets are often overlooked.

The life expectancy of a carpet varies hugely based on the usage & care shown to it over the first few years following installation. Allowing soiling & stains to go untreated cuts their life-span down significantly.

Should you vacuum every day? Yes, nearly 85% of dirt found in carpets is bought in on peoples footwear. This dirt then sinks into the fibers of the carpet where it accumulates & therefore becomes more difficult to remove. The best way to beat this is to vacuum every day, preferably using a high quality vacuum cleaner.

Vacuuming carpets can also release any allergens that are embedded within the fibres into the air where they are then inhaled & potentially cause allergy symptoms. Choosing a machine that has a air (HEPA) filter will also effectively remove allergens & a fully sealed system to prevent them from purposely being released.

Conducting an annually or bi-annually professional carpet clean is also recommended. This involves a much more thorough deep clean & will ensure any remaining soiling is removed.

Always use a certified company for a hot water extraction to ensure that it is done properly.

If you have a spillage on your carpet, it will most likely stain the carpet if not treated straight away. Applying a good stain protector can significantly reduce the likelihood of spillages causing permanent staining, as long as you are able to address the issue fairly soon.

A stain protector can be applied after a professional clean has been performed or once you have bought a new carpet. Either way, a quality stain protector will help protect your carpets for longer.

Carpet repairs are something that doesn’t often cross peoples minds. However if you have damage to your carpet such as a burn, hole or permanent stain, this can potentially be repaired.

A successful repair depends on their being a donor piece of the same carpet available. This can either be an off-cut or taken from a cupboard or an out of the way area. Ideally there should be more donor carpet than the area that needs repairing.

Stunning engineered wooden floor deep clean near Corsham.

This week Jon and Joanne were called out to this stunning engineered wooden floor near Corsham for a deep clean. There were also three very large rugs in need of a deep, green clean too.

Prior to taking on this clean, we had attended to conduct a free, no obligation survey of the wooden floors. With carpets and rugs we can usually quote over the phone however due to the different variables impacting hard floors we always like to come and survey to ensure we are giving the most accurate price based on floor type and condition.

Jon and Joanne then got to work on thoroughly sweeping and vacuuming these beautiful floors.

After a thorough sweep and vacuum to get up any dirt, the floor is then cleaned using the rotary agitator with a Bona cleaning solution and a soft white pad to gently agitate any other trodden in dirt and to remove grime and grease that may be present. The slurry left behind after using this machine is then removed from the floor using an extraction machine. You can see Joanne using this equipment in the picture above, it is surprising how much slurry is produced from floors that appeared to be clean. The floor is then rinsed, this water is then extracted again and the floor is then dried using air movers.

This process brings the floors back to their best and nicely fresh and sanitised. You can read more about hard floor cleaning here.

After getting the wooden floors looking gorgeous again, Jon and Joanne moved on to cleaning three very large, traditional rugs. The process for rugs is very similar to the process we use to clean carpets, however there is additional work involved. For example, rugs require back dusting to ensure that any debris and dirt trapped in the fibres is loosened and removed. This process is labour intensive and for rugs this large it can require two technicians to be able to manoeuvre the rug to get the best results. Dye migration can also prove problematic with rugs so technicians have to pre-test carefully and monitor as they clean to ensure there are no problems. Although a rug may seem straight forward it is actually very complex and has more potential for problems!
