Amazing results on upholstery clean in Cheltenham

We were recently contacted by a customer who was looking to have some upholstery cleaned. She had tried to clean the 6 dining chairs & a footstool herself but it had not improved the overall appearance.

After asking a few simple questions over the phone, we were able to give the customer a quotation for the work which she accepted. We then booked in a convenient time for the customer to have the clean carried out.

As you can see from the photo, the dining chairs were considerably stained, mainly with watermarks, probably from where the customer had tried to clean them herself.

Our technician, Pete set to work by applying some stain treatments & eco-sanitising pre spray. He then gave them time to dwell to help breakdown the soiling.

Next, Pete used a handheld rotary tool to gentle agitate the upholstery, working in cleaning solutions & hot water.

The last step in the cleaning process is the rinse extraction. This is where all the remaining cleaning solutions, water & soiling are removed from the chair.

As you can see, our tried & tested cleaning method had great results on the dining chairs.

The cleaning technique used above was then used on the footstool which was also heavily soiled. Again, Pete achieved some impressive results & had the upholstery looking so much cleaner & fresher, as shown in the before & after photos below.

Rug & Velvet Upholstery cleaning in beautiful Wales

We were contacted by a customer in Wales at the start of year who was looking to have a couple of rugs & their velvet sofa cleaned. After answering some questions about them, we were able to provide the customer with a quotation which she accepted & this week saw our head technician, Jon travel to a beautiful Welsh village to carry out the clean.

The first part of the cleaning process with the rugs is to conduct a pre-test to check if the dye will run once wet.

Once it has been confirmed that this will not happen, Jon then vacuums the rugs both front & back.

Next, is the treatment of any visible stains. A treatment is applied as well as eco-sanitising pre-spray and these are then left to dwell to assist with breaking down any stubborn stains.

Once sufficient time has passed, the rugs are then gently agitated. This works the water & cleaning solution into the material whilst bringing any soiling/debris to the surface.

The final part of the cleaning process is the traditional rinse extraction. This machine removes all the remaining water, solutions and dirt off the rugs.

If the rugs we are cleaning have fringes, these would also be cleaned.

As you can see in the photo above, Jon then used a couple of air movers to help speed up the drying process whilst he tackled the sofa. If we are not there long enough for the use of air movers, we recommend hanging rugs on the backs of dining chairs or over a banister to speed the drying process up. If you are able to pop the heating on low & open the windows slightly to allow good airflow through the property, this will also help the drying process along.

When it comes to upholstery in particular, our cleaning method can differ depending on the fabric of the sofa. Many people think their sofa is velvet but it is often not the case that is it pure cotton velvet. Many sofas can feel like velvet but often be a velvet mix or a fabric called viscose which does not respond well to the rinse extraction method of cleaning.

Therefore, it is always important that before any cleaning takes place, our technicians conduct a pre test of the fabric so that they know exactly what they are working with & amend the cleaning process to suit the fabric & get the best possible results.

Having conducted a pre test on the back on the sofa in an area that cannot be seen, Jon determined that this was a 50/50 cotton/polyester mix, because of this & the fact it had a short pile meant that it could be rinse extracted.

The cleaning method used was then very similar to that used on the rugs. It was thoroughly vacuumed & then the eco-friendly pre spray was applied & brushed into the fabric before being given time to dwell. Next up was the traditional rinse extraction which was set to low pressure so that the fabric was not saturated. Then terry cloths were used to absorb more moisture whilst also grooming the fabric so it was back looking all uniform.

This video shows Jon at work finishing off the sofa clean, using the terry cloths as mentioned above.

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.

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.

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

Successful early morning commercial upholstery clean in Monmouth

We were recently contacted by restaurant chain, Loungers as they were looking to have a very large sofa cleaned in Monmouth as the front of the cushions were beginning to look a little dull.

So this morning, our technician Pete had an early start as he headed off to Monmouth to clean the sofa before the restaurant opened.

WhatsApp Image 2023 11 15 at 10.48.10 ea671cd9 1 1

The sofa was given a full deep clean using our tried & tested method of traditional rinse extraction which gets great results on a well used sofa such as this. The first step in the process is to vacuum the sofa, this removes as much of the surface debris as possible. Next up, Pete treated any notable stains & used a eco-sanitising pre spray which was given time to dwell in-order to break up as much as staining/soiling as possible.

Once enough time had passed, Pete then used an agitation brush to gently agitate the upholstery which helps bring any remaining soiling to the surface ready for the final part in the cleaning process.

Lastly, it is time for the traditional rinse extraction. This part of the process uses hot water to extract any remaining soiling & product residue.

The end result is a deep clean which is also a green clean & has left the sofa looking much cleaner, fresher & sanitised.

Another job well done by Pete!

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.

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.

WhatsApp Image 2023 11 08 at 14.36.53 667cbbea

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.

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.

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!

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!
