Have you ever questioned whether your carpets, rugs, or soft furnishings should be cleaned? Many do question it and they are normally persuaded with the answer no, it’s not worth it as they are never the same again.

But the answer is YES!! They should be cleaned. But having the correct type of cleaning is the key factor to ensure the right results are achieved.

A carpet cleaner is a carpet cleaner though? Right!! No, Wrong. We all believe that if something looks cleaner then it is cleaner but when we look into it a bit deeper, we find some interesting answers.

The most popular fibre used in carpets in the UK are Wool. Wool is extremely good at hiding soil and responds extreme well to cleaning, however it is also extremely delicate. 95% of carpet cleaners in the UK are trained normally by American systems and process from where the industry started, but the carpets are mainly man made synthetics. When the trained carpet cleaners clean a wool fibre in the UK, it looks good until a few weeks later then starts to attract dirt quickly, feels course and gritty, spills become stains and the appearance is poor. Our Woolsafe approved technicians are trained and qualified to clean wool to the set British standards to ensure that the delicate fibres are not damaged in any way. The fibres will look deeper in colour, feel softer and last longer with […]

Clean Carpets vs Hard Floors for Allergies

Many people replace carpets with some kind of hard flooring due to having allergies caused by dust and hairs. Allergens such as dust and hair from humans or pets will always be present in any household. Controlling the removal of them will make your home healthier.

Hard floors are easier to vacuum and clean everyday versus carpets, but what happens to the small particles of dirt in between your cleaning? Every time you walk about or shut a door, the airflow will lift these small particles and they then float about in the air, which you may then breathe in. They also lay on horizontal surfaces such as worktops and sofas, meaning that dust is then higher and will be easier to breath in next time a sudden gust of air disturbs it.

Carpets however, are massive filters, trapping dust, dirt and hair in their fibres and causing these allergens to be held down. When carpets are vacuumed the loose hair and dirt is removed and in the meantime, the dirt is not airborne as it would be with a hard floor.

Once a year (as recommended by manufacturers) your carpets should be professionally cleaned by a qualified company to remove the greasy dirt  that builds up in the carpet as it’s going about acting as a filter.

Once a carpet’s filtration is completely clean and free from grease, it will hold dirt and hair much more effectively than it would if the carpet was greasy and dirty, due to it no longer being saturated with soils that prevent the filter from doing its job.

So which flooring is better?

The correct carpet to suit the room conditions will keep the dust particles out of the air. Hard floors have nothing to hold the dust down, so unless you have the time and […]

Carpet Stain Removal

If a spillage occurs to your lovely soft carpet, upholstery, rug or leather, the first thing we want to do is clean it up. Did you know that you can seal a stain into a fibre or fabric by not understanding the carpet itself or the spillage?

Fibres and fabrics when manufactured are at the best condition possible and ready to resist soiling and staining with maximum protection.

As these fibres age, they will be less resilient to resist soiling and spills due to abrasion caused by use and excess soil in the fibres. Once a sandpaper effect occurs to these fibres, cleaning and stain removal techniques may not be as successful and chances are higher of permanent damage.

As we are qualified to understand the characteristics of all fibres and constructions, we can give the highest quality end result without taking a chance with stain removal that may make no difference.

Understanding how carpets are manufactured, and how they are dyed makes us very successful when giving expected results. Some carpets are made from polymers and may have dyes introduced before the fibre is made.

This type of fibre can be quite difficult to stain with water based spillages, but exposure to greasy or oily marks may change the fibres colour. Other natural fibres and some synthetic fibres may have been dyed after the fibres were made, and can still accept more dyes under the right circumstance.

Water based spillages may lead to a permanent dye if the fibre absorbs the moisture, however any greasy or oily spot marks it may resist and correct removal may be very successful.
