Carpet and Rug 7-point Cleaning Process
I clean Carpets and Rugs to the highest possible standards using the following steps.
- Firstly, the carpet is thoroughly vacuumed using a very powerful industrial vacuum cleaner to remove as much dirt and grime as possible.
- Secondly, the carpet is sprayed with a general detergent pre-spotter. Any prominent marks will undergo supplementary treatment with stronger and more specific stain removers.
- Thirdly, the carpet is agitated using a mechanical brush (Subo Duo) which deploys two alternatively rotating brushes to help loosen the remaining soilage. This process also helps to lift the pile and to rejuvenate the carpet fibres.
- Fourthly, the carpet is rinsed using the hot water / steam extraction process which involves a high-pressure solution, containing an alkaline detergent being directed under considerable pressure into the carpet fibres and the dirty water rapidly vacuumed up using a wand connected to two very powerful vacuum motors. This is done to wash / rinse the carpet, keeping the carpet as dry as possible, lessoning the risk of any shrinkage. On more heavily soiled carpets hot water is augmented with steam using a V2 Steam-Mate and agitated using a mechanical metal brush. This ensures even the most heavily soiled carpets are cleaned to the highest possible standard.
- Fifthly, the carpet is mist sprayed with a finishing spray, which is slightly acidic. This neutralizes the alkaline detergent whilst brightening and fastening the dies in the carpet. This spray also contains an antifungal agent and an additive to kill dust mites, which thrive in the house environment and can often be responsible for causing allergic conditions such as asthma.
- Sixthly, the carpet is dried using a powerful blower, known as an air mover, which circulates the air and assists the drying process.
- Finally the carpet is groomed using a broom which sets the carpet pile, giving the carpet a new prestine look.
