|Our carpet cleaning uses a multi step process as follows:
Firstly, the carpet is inspected to determine
the fabric type and construction, and how far soiling has
advanced throughout, then a test for
colour fastness is carried out.
The area is then cleared removing any furniture or personal effects out of the room.
A powerful vacuum cleaner is then used to remove any surface debris which importantly
includes the carpet edges with a crevice tool. This process also lifts the carpet pile
into an upright position which aids the
next step of the cleaning.
Pre-spot stain remover is applied to heavy soiled areas.
The next step includes a pre-spray of Karcher rm760 cleaning solution to the area to be cleaned. These
chemicals have no bleaching agents and are of a low PH-value as not to discolour or damage
the carpet fabrics in any way.
Using a brush tool, these chemicals are agitated deep into the pile to break up any dirt
or contaminates from the carpet fibres. Depending on the degree of soiling, this can
be left to dwell between 5-30 minutes.
Hot Water Extraction
Using the Kiam Aquarius Contractor, a hot water extraction machine, the whole area is
periodically cleaned, injecting a mix of hot water and
Karcher rm760 detergent deep into the pile,
whilst a powerful twin motored pump extracts the dirty solution. Any stubborn areas are
pre-spotted again to ensure stain removal.
A fine mist of carpet fresh is then applied, this contains an anti-bacterial solution and
leaves the carpet smelling fresh and looking bright.
The carpet is then lightly raked with our brush tool
(depending on pile construction) to lift the carpet fibres which in
turn aids the drying time.
We are often asked how long the carpet or upholstery will take to dry. This can be
dependant on a number of factors. If the carpets have been cleaned on a warm summer
day with the windows open, or the room temperature is quite high, then the carpets will
dry quickly. Even if it is cold and damp outside, it's advised the windows are to be
left open during the drying process to allow moisture to vent outside.
With the advancement of commercial equipment, the drying times are radically reduced due
to high powered suction pumps, but on average approximately between 2 to
We carry out our services on all various occasions, be it an end of tenancy clean, or
