Our carpets and upholstery, and rugs are expensive items. So much so the majority of people have to take loans out to pay for this.
When you buy a car you take good care of it, why? You have spent a lot of hard saved cash.
So why should we take good care of our carpets and upholstery.
For starters keeping things clean is healthy for you and your family.
An advisable idea for keeping carpets clean is to engage in a hoovering regime. A military operation maybe.
So, what type of hoover is best to use. Our company use Sebo hoovers. The reason we use this model is down to the power of the rotating brushes. The brushes agitate the fibres within your carpets, reducing the risk of grit agitating and causing fibres tufting away.
Hoovering can be a chore; however, it is best that we persevere. In the event that you don’t look after your furniture is it more probable that you will need to seek the professional carpet cleaning service of a carpet cleaner.
Obtaining or finding a carpet cleaning provider who is competent to deliver a cost effective clean can be time consuming. What we like to deliver our customers are video reviews. This type of review is real and engaging, and gives any prospective client the opportunity to use this information to make a choice.
The choice could be yes, we will get the pro in, or no let’s do it ourselves.
This is where a minefield can become so apparent.
The carpet cleaning company carry all the correct chemicals, have that essential knowledge and experience. As an example, what ph chemical would you use on your carpet or upholstery.
If you used an acid on certain carpets it would bleach the fibres, and the same goes for an alkaline chemical.
How would you tackle the stains, or even urine? Does your carpet smell. What chemicals you can buy one the counter to that of the trained professional carries.
It always advisable to allow the professional to allocate his skill on your furnishings.
As an example of the picture below
On the left-hand side is the carpet which had been cleaned by the homeowner.
On the right-hand side was the finished article actioned by warrington carpet cleaners
Now the reason the customer could not achieve the same results as us, what a number of factors.
1 / They did not hoover the carpet before attempting their clean. We did
2/ They did not have the correct chemical to remove the stain at the top of the picture.
3/ They used a neutral cleaning chemical, when we used one with a ph of 11. The client did not agitate the chemical into the carpet as they could not hire a machine to do so. Our machine(crb) was used. This process grind the cleaning solution deep into the carpets fibres, helping release dirt, grit, and some odours.
4/ The machine they hired had little pressure, 55psi, we used 300psi.
5/ This carpet was originally cleaned with cold water. Our cleaning machine was set at 110c.
6/ The customer required an odour clean also. The reason for this was the carpet took three days to dry. The carpet was dry in less than two hours.
The drying time is critical in any household or business.
Power, knowledge, experience is critical for a successful carpet cleaning company such as carpet cleaners warrington
Another example of the diy cleaner is shown on the picture below.
On this particular job, the customer had been using baby wipes. Asked why? My mum said it works.
Well obviously, not.
Now the cleaning of leathers is not as straight forward as one may think.
Different Hyde’s respond differently to chemical’s.
Bleached leather can run, and gather stains.
To ensure a successful clean the are a few things we need to understand.
What is the leather.
Is it bonded, sewn, or glued.
Do any colours run.
The first action is to test for colour fastness, we do this by applying what we think is the correct cleaning compound. So, this has been determined.
The first thing we action is the good old hoovering.
Next, we wash down the leather. What this does is remove grease and breaks down ingrained dirt.
After this the sofa is washed with clean water and dried off.
The leather cleaning cream is the applied, section by section, cleaning inch by inch.
Only use white terry towels, using these you can see the when the dirt has stopped to lift. In other words, the upholstery is clean.
The final action is to condition the leather upholstery.
If the leather does not receive the conditioner it will in time dry and start to crack.
Now rugs come in all shapes and sizes, and obviously, and the cost of the rug.
Our company has cleaned rugs which have cost a few hundred pounds to many thousands.
The cleaning of rugs is a totally different system to that of carpets.
For instance, some rugs can be made of silk, wool, a mixture. Some are machine made, handmade.
Rugs can be passed down as air looms and are a precious item to someone.
When rugs are cleaned a thorough inspection is required to help determine, are the stains removeable, are the fringes cleanable and all there.
At our workshop, we lay each rug face down and use a special machine called a badger. What this machine does is vibrates the rug releasing all the grit and dirt. You would be amazed what comes out using this process.
Once this is done the rug is removed and placed in a special bath. Stains are then dealt with.
Most rugs are then cleaned using what is called the river clean. Water is dispersed over the rug. A chemical to help clean the rug is sprayed on and then agitated. Again, clean water is used to wash away the debris. Now this can be either with a wide squeegee, or machine cleaned. This process all depends on the construction of the rug.
Some rugs have fringes on them which may have to be rebleached.
Drying of rugs again varies. Some may be left to dry hung up and dry naturally. Other may be placed into a rug wringing centrifuge.
All through this process pictures are taken for our own peace of mind.
Customers expect high standards from carpet cleaning warrington , and this is what we like to deliver to all of our customers.
