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.

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.

Lots of photos showing the hard work of the team, everyone pitched in & worked hard through some very hot summer days. In total, we cleaned in excess of 700 bedrooms plus corridors, foyers, stairs & common rooms. Great results were achieved & the accommodation was looking much cleaner & more welcoming for the influx of students that have been arriving over the past few weeks.
