Carpet Cleaning Method

Carpet cleaning step 1 - Survey carpet - Stevenage

Step 1 - Survey the carpet

Customer requirements vary greatly, it is important to understand what each customer wants to achieve from THEIR carpet clean. Sometimes the desired result is just a general clean and freshen up of the entire carpet, other times individual spots, stains or smells are the main concern. Sensitive individuals with allergies, asthma or sensitive skin are mainly concerned about dust, mites or if they will react to the cleaning products that we use.

The age, pile depth, material, wear, level of maintenance are just some of the variables that we look at in individual carpets before we start, varying our approach accordingly. For example there is little point in us spending time deeply vacuum cleaning the carpet pile when the customer regular vacuums using a suitable hoover - our time is better spent on other steps.

Taking all of this into account before we start we can adjust our carpet cleaning technique in order to achieve the best clean and your complete satisfaction.

Carpet cleaning step 2 - Deep hoover - Stevenage

Step 2 - Deep hoover

Carpet cleaning always starts with a deep hoover. Up to 80% of the soil in the carpet can be removed with appropriate hoovering. Most domestic hoovers only remove surface soil, leaving the soil that is deep down in the pile making the carpets look dull and shortening their lifespan by causing abrasion between the fibres. It is important to remove all of this soil before applying any liquid to the fabric, otherwise you will create a mud bath type of effect. We use a Karcher CV 38/2 hoover to remove as much of the soil as possible. Professional vacuum cleaners are different to domestic ones, they combine powerful suction with a strong pile lifting brush to separate and comb the carpet pile, allowing removal of all of the soil.

For customers with pets, it is essential that your hoover has a rotating brush. Hair ties into the fibres of the carpets and without the brush you will find it near impossible to remove.

Professional vacuuming with the correct tools removes much more soil than typical domestic maintenance, if this wasn't true then we wouldn't have to empty our hoover bags on a daily basis!

Carpet cleaning step 3 - Prespray - Stevenage

Step 3 - Prespray

Once as much of the insoluble soil as possible has been removed from the customer, its time to tackle what is left - the soluble soil. This type of soil has stuck to or soaked into the carpet fibres, most can be washed out, however some may of permanently stained the carpet. Depending on the customers needs, make up of the carpet and the level of soiling we will choose an appropriate product to spray the entire carpet with. Most of our cleaning products come from the excellent range of supplied by Alltec. They range from powerful degreasing solutions suitable for commercial environments such as shops, bars & restaurants to mild environmently friendly products. Using the appropriate dilution, the entire carpet is sprayed the choosen product, which will immediately start to break down grease and grime in the carpet.

Whilst the whole carpet to be cleaned is treated with a general cleaning product, indivudal areas are treated at the same time with an more specific product. Our mobile carpet cleaning warehouse (our van!) carries a wide range of products suitable for the treatment, removal or improvement for a wide range of carpet marks or stains. Identifying the cause of a stain is an important part of the initial survey as it will tell us how best to improve the stain efficiently. Smells can be treated with a variety of products, depending on the cause. We carry specific products to kill 99.9% of bacteria in carpets which is required to make safe carpets affected by urine or sewage.

Carpet cleaning step 4 - Agitation - Stevenage

Step 4 - Agitation

Once the carpet has been appropriately sprayed with an appropriate product, the product needs to be "agitated" deep into the carpet. You might compare this process to scrubbing, however it is much different. It is important to a agitate the prespray as much as possible to distribute and work the product through the carpet BUT it must be done as gently as possible. Typically in a domestic setting, stains are treated with a spotting spray bought from the super market, and then scrubbed hard at to try and remove the mark. Often this can successfully remove the market, but almost always it will cause irrepairable damage to the carpet pile. The fibres will break, unravel and fluff up, leaving a noticeable inconsistancy in the carpet pile.

Gentle appropriate carpet fibre is key here, we use the fantastic ProChem TM4 machine for this purpose. Contra rotating stiff bristles brush the carpet in a vertical plane which effectively works the product through the carpet without the damage seen by scrubbing. This machine is fantastic also for customers with pets who have deeper pile carpets, as the rotating brushes remove even more of the hair deep from the carpet.

Ocassionally a situation will ask for greater or lesser agitation. Expensive delicate carpets made out of materials such as velour can be agitated using a manual brush. Tough commerical carpet tiles will benefit from greater agitation and can handle heavier scrubbing on a horizontal plane, and we would favour using a heavy rotary or orbital machine for this process.

Carpet cleaning step 5 - Hot water extraction - Stevenage

Step 5 - Hot water extraction

Exactly what it says on the tin, this part of the carpet cleaning process entails high pressure cleaning solution being sprayed into the carpet and immediately sucked out by a powerful vacuum. Rinsing the carpet in this way removes all the cleaning products applied by the carpet cleaning professional and any previous DIY cleaning attempts. At the same time the dirt and grime loosened by previous steps is extracted, leaving the carpets clean and fresh.

Water for this process is heated up to around 40-70 degrees depending on the situation, higher temperatures help with the cleaning process, but it is important to not damage the carpet fibres in anyway. Deodorizer products are often added to the tank also, to neutralize smells. The dirty water that is extracted is often black in colour! Some customers find this satisfying, others are ashamed! Dirty water is then flushed down the toilet, never to be seen again!

We use the excellent Alltec Advance 600 machine to completely rinse your carpets, leaving them clean and smelling fresh.

Carpet cleaning step 6 - Stairs - Stevenage

Step 6 - Stairs

Stairs are cleaned in the same way as the rest of the carpets in your home. The only difference is that during the hot water extraction process, smaller hand tools are used in order to comfortably clean every inch of the stair carpet.

Carpet cleaning step 6 - Stair hoovering - Stevenage

Both the flat and the upright of the stair is hoovered with a smaller detail head for the hoover to make sure every corner is reached.

Carpet cleaning step 7 - Stain removal - Stevenage

Step 7 - Stain removal

Most stains & marks are removed in the general cleaning process described previous. However often there is imperfections left still, these marks have physically dyed the carpet fibre, altering its appearance. Using a variety of techniques and products we can treat stains appropriately depending on the cause of the stain, and the material the carpet is made of. There is so many variables in carpets and staining it is impossible to guarantee removal of stains, and it is often costly because of the time that has to be spent trying different products and techniques!

For example with a coffee stain, the type of coffee bean, the strength of the coffee mixture, whether is decaffinated or not (decaff is worse as it has added dyes to make it look like normal coffee), the type of the carpet and the temperature of the coffee are all variables that affect removal of the stain! Even the breed of the sheep providing the wool can alter the makeup of the carpet fibre, varying the cleaning results! As you can see there is alot to take into account, no carpet cleaner will guarantee removal of stains, the best they can do is apply a correct method and hope for the best!

For lighter coloured carpets in particular, sometimes it is more cost effective if the stain is treated with a mild bleaching agent. Sometimes this will remove the stain completely without any lightening, but often the area will be left slightly lighter than the rest of the carpet.
