My preferred method of cleaning carpets is hot water extraction; commonly referred to as “Steam Cleaning”. I have invested over £15,000 in the most modern equipment available.

There can be a temptation to leave out one or more of these processes to save time. However, I rarely book more than one customer a day, which allows me enough time to clean your carpets thoroughly using this 9 stage process.

  1. Room Preparation. I will move larger furnishings such as sofas and chairs. For insurance reasons I ask all customers to move smaller, valuable items such as ornaments before I arrive.
  2. Vacuum. Then I vacuum your carpets using a powerful Sebo commercial vacuum cleaner. You will be amazed at what this is capable of picking up after you have vacuumed, it beats a Dyson any day.
  3. Carpet Treatment. Depending on the carpet type any spots or stains will be treated at this point or after extraction. The nature of the stain and fibre must first be determined before any attempt to remove is made.
  4. Pre-Spray. Next your carpet will be pre-sprayed which will help break up any dirt still present in your carpet.
  5. Agitation. The pre-spray will be agitated into the carpet with a specially designed machine with contra rotating brushes. The same principle as rubbing your hands together when you wash them to loosen the dirt.
  6. Hot water extraction. Now the really interesting bit! Hot water extraction or steam cleaning. For this I use a very powerful machine capable of temperatures of 110C. It applies a fine jet of steaming hot solution under high pressure directly into the carpet fibres, it is then immediately extracted using powerful vacuum pumps. This is performed almost simultaneously, therefore not allowing the base of the carpets to become sodden. Thus, considerably speeding up the drying time.
  7. Drying. A powerful air mover is then placed in the room. This can speed the drying time of carpet and upholstery up to 70%.
  8. Grooming. Where appropriate, the carpet will be groomed using a carpet rake.
  9. Replace Furniture. Finally furniture is replaced on either Styrofoam blocks or foil tabs. This prevents any residual moisture in the carpet from leeching furniture stain that might otherwise spoil your beautiful clean carpet.

Carpet manufacturers recommend that carpets are cleaned once a year to help maintain their quality as well as prolong their life. Built up soils, grit and dust can act like sandpaper in your carpet fibres, shortening the lifespan of your carpets and making traffic lanes look faded and worn well before the time you would expect. Investing in professional carpet cleaning and maintenance means your carpets can last longer and you can save money in the long run.
