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.

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!

Hugely successful commercial team clean at Hartpury College

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.

Successful commercial carpet & upholstery clean in Bristol apartment block

We are no strangers to the vast Number One Bristol apartment complex as we have been cleaning their carpets & upholstery on an annual basis for the past few years as well as ad hoc cleaning when the need arises. Before the annual carpet clean, we still conduct a survey to see how the carpets have faired since our previous visit & to observe any areas of particular concern. As with all our surveys, this allows us to put together a comprehensive plan to bring out the best in the carpets in a time efficient manner.

On this occasion we arranged for a team of technicians to spend 3 full days cleaning the communal carpets over 14 floors as well as some upholstery in the lobby of the building.

As you can imagine with an apartment building of this size, it gets some heavy footfall throughout the communal areas so there was general soiling to deal with as well as some food & drink stains.

Our team tackled one floor at a time using our tried & tested process which includes a combination of the following;

  • Dry extraction/vacuuming – Thoroughly vacuuming the carpets first to pick up any surface debris
  • Spot/stain treatments, as necessary – Applying stain treatments as necessary & allowing them to dwell to loosen up as much of the stain as possible
  • Eco-sanitising pre-spray – Applying an effective santisier that is tough on dirt & bacteria
  • Rotary agitation – Using a rotary machine which agitates the carpets to bring any debris to the surface. This machine also applies a cleaning solution to the carpets & agitates it deep into the pile to provide a thorough clean
  • Traditional rinse extraction (sometimes called steam cleaning) – This final part of the process extracts all the remaining dirt, water & cleaning solutions from the carpet. In some cases where there is a high level of soiling, this step can be repeated to ensure as much as possible is extracted

Great results from our fabulous team on the carpets, the overall outcome saw most of the stains lifted & a large amount of soiling removed. Conducting an annually clean like we do in these particular premises really does help to keep on top of the soiling/staining which in-turn extends the lift expectancy of a carpet.

However, our team were not finished yet & also had some upholstery to clean in the lobby of the building. There was a curved sofa & a chaise that both needed some attention. The chaise in particular looked a little tired & soiled as it was mainly used as a table for incoming deliveries.

We adopted the same cleaning method as that used on the carpets but swapped the rotary agitation machine for a hand held tool. These now look much cleaner & fresher & offer a nicer place for visitors to sit, hopefully the introduction of a table in the lobby will now prevent the parcels being left on the sofas!

Huge thanks to our amazing team for their hard work over the 3 days, it was a big job in this warm weather but they rose to the challenge perfectly (thanks for the lift selfies too!)
