Carpet Cleaning Services In Bishop’s Stortford.

Cleaning the carpets in your home in Bishop’s Stortford, is one of the most important but often overlooked aspects when it comes to keeping the house clean and safe!

It is important to understand that regular professional cleaning will extend the life and good looks of the carpet and will improve air quality in your home as carpets act like air filters.

Not only that professional carpet cleaning will maintain a good aspect of the carpet but it will actually help reduce wear by removing foreign soils from the carpet fibers, which in turn saves more money than not cleaning them at all, or renting a DIY machine!

Our cleaning process is designed to give carpets a deeper, longer-lasting, healthier clean without the use of harsh chemicals or detergents.
Our process uses 80% less water than typical steam cleaning, which allows your carpets to dry in 1-2 hours instead of 1-2 days. This also lowers the risk of mold and mildew growth that can result from the excessive amount of water used by most steam cleaners.

  • Along with the above, a no obligation quotation form will be left with the customer, having the possibility to decide either to go ahead or not at its own convenience!
Dry soil extraction/
vacuuming

Dry soil extraction/
vacuuming

step two
  • Dry soil extraction also known as „vacuuming” or „hoovering” is the second step in a good carpet cleaner’s method. Why?
  • Using a dual powered commercial vacuum cleaner we can remove up to 80-90% of dry soil embedded in you carpet or upholstery.
  • What happens if a carpet cleaner does not vacuum or vacuums with an unsuitable machine? Well imagine if you put water on soil, what do you get?
  • No matter what kind of equipment is used, a thorough vacuum is necessary to perform a quality carpet clean!
Spot and Stain treatment

Spot and Stain treatment

step three
  • Using a wide range of spotting agents and spotting equipment spots and stains will be treated individually to maximize the chances for them to be removed.
  • Not all stains are chemically alike so there really is no magic good for all stain removal product. So it’s really important to have training and the right equipment to deal with them.
  • We are trained and qualified to undertake advanced spot and stain removal techniques on all types of carpets and textile floor coverings to the British Standard’s Institutes’ PAS 86 Standards!
  • Also at this point the customer would be made aware of any marks that would be permanent!
  • Permanent stains would be those that have chemically affected the native dyes in the carpet or have been treated with DIY chemicals.
Pre treatment

Pre treatment

step four
  • Using a pressure sprayer carpets and upholstery will be treated with a specific cleaning solution.
  • What it does is help release soils from the carpet fibers, and out of your home!
  • Going back to step 1 we should already know the fabric is either natural or synthetic so a suitable cleaning solution will be applied.
  • No detergents are used, and all the cleaning solutions are nontoxic, eco-friendly, pet safe and non-allergenic for both the operator and the customer’s well-being.
Agitation

Agitation

step five
  • After the pre spray is applied it starts working at separating the soils from the carpet fibers.
  • But that is not enough for a deep clean. Using a counter rotating brush machine, mechanical agitation is applied to the carpet fibers.
  • Some use a pile brush but that simply does not have the weight and power as our machine and they cannot do as many brushes per minute either!
  • The machine’s 2 counter rotating brushes reaches deep into the carpet pile, releasing embedded soil, hair, etc. making the carpet ready for the next step!
Extraction

Extraction

step six
  • A professional industrial how water extractor is used to rinse/extract what is already released from the carpet fibers in the previous steps.
  • High pressure clean hot water comes out of the wand and goes back in, leaving your carpets free of foreign soil, debris, pet hair etc. At the same time we use an additive to make sure the ph. in you carpet is 7, which is the neutral PH.!
  • Because of the high pressure and powerful vacuum of the extractor the carpets will be left clean and only damp, not soaking wet.
Grooming

Grooming

step seven
  • Basically, carpet grooming is the act of using a carpet rake or a carpet brush to move carpet fiber back and forth. Carpet grooming resets the fiber nap back to its original state. When carpet is groomed following a professional cleaning it can help to speed the dry time and leave the pile nice and fluffy!
  • Upholstery will be groomed with a hand brush or white absorbent towel.
Drying and aftercare

Drying and aftercare

step eight
  • The carpets are now clean, looking nice and smelling great. But is it done? No.
  • Steps are taken to ensure fast drying after the job is done and payment taken.
  • That might be done by just leaving a few windows opened depending on weather and security, turning the heating on or using air movers.
  • An after care sheet will be left with the customer along with a bottle of professional spot and stain remover so you can maintain you carpets and upholstery in-between professional cleaning visits.

Carpet facts - Did you know?

All carpet should be professionally cleaned a minimum of every 12 to 18 months.

Microbiologists have identified air blown from a running vacuum cleaner as one of the five places in the home that has the highest numbers of germs. Other places include dish sponges, washing machines, bathroom toilets during a flush, and kitchen bins.

The five-second rule is a myth: bacteria can live after four weeks on carpet. And, thanks to “microbial adhesion,” germs such as the following are immediately transferred to food: Salmonella typhimurium, Campylobacter, and Salmonella enteritis, a nasty bacterium that causes horrible diarrhea and vomiting.

Each year, several pounds of soil can accumulate in and under a carpet.

Bed bugs can live in carpet fibers and wooden floorboards. For their size, they are extremely fast and can crawl more than 100 feet to obtain a blood meal, usually at night from people who are sleeping. Engorgement takes about three to 10 minutes yet people rarely realize they are being bitten.

A person sheds about 1.5 million skin flakes an hour, most of which becomes embedded in our carpets.

Scientists believe that more than 43 million tons of dust falls over the United Kingdom every year. Indoor air usually contains about twice as much dust as the air outside. That’s a million microscopic particles in a cubic inch of air. About 2,000 dust mites can live happily on one ounce of carpet dust.

Naphthalene is commonly found in carpet cleaners. In concentrated form, it is dangerous to breath and can cause headaches, nausea, vomiting, and urinary irritation. It is a suspected carcinogen and can be toxic to children, infants, and pets.

Carpet near a fireplace can get very warm, making it a perfect place for an odd little creature called a “firebrat.” It has a long, flexible body and is able to eat almost anything.

Some modern carpets are made from artificial plastic fiber, but other carpets are made from knotted wool, which can house beetle grubs or “woolly bears.” Special chemicals in their stomachs convert wool into sugar so they will munch through carpet like cotton candy.

To make a carpet brighter, sprinkle salt onto the carpet and let it stand for an hour before vacuuming it up. Salt is also effective in removing muddy footprints.

The caterpillar of the palm flower moth is fond of making its home in a deep cavity in a carpet. Regardless of whether the carpet fibers are natural or man-made, the caterpillar will use the fibers to make a cocoon.

Dust mites thrive in warm, humid environments, eating dead skin cells and nesting in dust-collecting carpet. The residue that mites leave behind can mix with dust and become airborne, which may cause allergies.

Carcinogens in cigarettes may accumulate in household carpet. Because dogs and cats, not to mention children and infants, spend a great deal of time on the floor, they may be at risk for developing lung cancer in households with cigarette smokers.

Carpets are highly effective places for mature fleas to live because fleas thrive in the carpet’s dry temperature. Conversely, flea eggs love wetter carpet that may be damp due to flooding, inadequate bathroom ventilation, or kitchen-generated moisture. Fleas can bite both people and animals.

Carpets in particular can become heavily infested with mites. The chemical benzyl benzoate will kill mites, but their dead carcasses can still be allergenic and will need to be vacuumed up afterward. A diluted solution of tannic acid can be sprayed onto the carpet to kill dust mites, but tannic acid can be dangerous to humans.

Wall-to-wall carpeting is less healthy than smaller rugs because wall-to-wall carpets tend to be more permanent and harder-to-clean endpoints for moisture, chemicals, liquids, crumbs, and other spills that provide molds, mildew, yeasts, and bacteria (such as e-coli) with a rich and nearly continuous supply of nutrients.
