“Oh my God” says customer in Newbury

took a drive across to Newbury on friday 5/2 to get some stains out of the carpets in a couple of rooms, the client said she as tried everything but cant “get them out” always worries me when my customers tell me they have had a good “ol” scrubb because of the damage that can be caused! anyway the first thing we did was to do a tester..which basically means we spot a small area and if the “stain” starts to lift we know we are in business! which we was, we set about cleaning the said area
and after a few minutes it was then my client said the immortal words….”oh my god” look at that, that is the most amazing thing i have ever seen! So it looks like we will be performing more miracles in newbury in the near future. Because it was such a nice day decided i wasn’t in a mad rush to get home so had a nice gentle drive to make sure the DRY&CLEAN MACHINE got really noticed..

Is it really clean?

20130416_091052Customers naturally assume that because their carpet do’s not contain any stains, spots or spills its clean, And don’t need our services, This is not the case. Take a look at these photos, The pic on the right was “cleaned” 2 weeks prior to us doing it, All we done was agitate the carpet and this was the dirt and dust that came out! We then went on to give it a thorough clean!

The pic on the left is a childs room, The client mentioned to us that she vacuums at least twice a week, Again we agitated carpet to remove the dust and nasties that give so many breathing problems to people.

So, Even a “clean” carpet needs our service at least once a year.

People who dont pay!

This is about those customers who don’t pay! I’m sure I’m not the only one who is experiencing this problem! I wouldn’t mind if the job was shoddy or just bad workmanship but i have a testimonial from my customer! There is the usual route to go i.e send in the debt collectors but my own views on this are well known!  Letter writing, this is where you send the first letter saying how you are sure your customer as “forgotten to post the cheque” only to find that after 7 days they have still forgotten, so you send the second letter which is a bit more stern, Something like, We notice you still have NOT paid “you got 3 days” A week later, NOTHING! Now its time for THE letter” which simply says, pay now or this go’s to our solicitors!! There’s something about that letter that makes me feel bad and keep putting off sending it, Don’t know what it is cant quit put my finger on it, I have come to the conclusion that from now on everyone i do work for must pay when the job is complete!

Caring for wool

The purchase of a fine wool carpet/rug is an investment that should be properly cared for. Because wool is a natural fiber, it has different needs than modern synthetic fiber carpets. The dyes used to color wool carpet/rugs are often sensitive to harsh cleaners, so it is important to keep the appropriate cleaners on hand and ensure that harsh chemicals are never used. Wool fibers also have felting properties, making it important that they are handled carefully. A little knowledge goes a long way in caring for wool carpets and rugs and ensuring that your investment will last for years for your family to enjoy.

Regular wool carpet maintenance necessitates vacuuming two to three times a week, dependant on how much foot traffic your carpet sustains. In order to ensure that the maximum amount of dirt is removed from deep in the carpet without hurting the fibers, make sure to set your vacuum’s beater bar at the correct height for your carpet. You want it set as low as possible without slowing the beater bar’s movement. If the beater bar is too low, it will revolve too slowly to be effective, and can tear the tiny fibers of the wool carpet/rug. The strain on a beater bar that is set too low can also burn up the vacuum motor. When vacuuming a wool carpet/rug, be sure to move the vacuum in all directions, vacuuming both the length and width of the carpet. This will help ensure that as much debris as possible is removed.

Vacuuming is standard for all floor coverings. Deeper cleaning methods differ depending on the type of fibers that the carpet is made of. Silk carpets are sensitive to many cleaners that are safe to use on antique wool rugs, and synthetic fiber carpets are the least sensitive of all. It is very important to check with the manufacturer of your rug about what type of cleaning solutions and methods are recommended for that specific rug.

Generally, oxygen based cleaners should never be used on wool fiber carpet/rugs. If a spill occurs, blot the area with clean, white towels until no more wetness shows on the towels and the wool rug is as dry as possible. Using white towels is important, as it stops color transfer from the towel to the carpet. It is also important to be careful to blot, not rub. Rubbing at a spill works the mess deeper into the carpet pile and agitates the wool fibers. If the spill is biologically based, for example pet urine, use an organic microsplitter cleaner on the spill spot and allow to dry on its own so that the microsplitter as time to work. It is usually a good idea to call a professional cleaner after such an accident.

You can have a wool carpet/rug professionally steam cleaned, we would advise against this. For best results, have your wool carpets/ rugs cleaned about every 12-18 months by a company that specializes in cleaning, restoring, and caring for your particular type of wool carpet or rug.

How HOST works in your home.

1_vacHOST® Dry Extraction Carpet Cleaner is a soft, natural product that is environmentally responsible and works in much the same way as an ordinary kitchen sponge. Just like you would use a sponge to wipe up a spill, or to wash and absorb dirt from a counter or wall, HOST is used to wash and absorb dirt from your carpet fibers. As with using a kitchen sponge, you want to limit the amount of water you use while cleaning. Think of the carpet pile as a vertical surface, like a wall. If you use too much liquid, it will run down the yarn toward the carpet backing, just as too much liquid runs down a wall. If you allow this dissolved dirt to run down the backing, it can be more difficult to remove and can wick back.

Because HOST is a dry carpet cleaning system it carries the liquid ingredients to the carpet fibers in a controlled way. The soft, organic, natural HOST SPONGES contain all the necessary liquid to dissolve and absorb both water based and oil based dirt. It’s moistened with water and a blend of environmentally friendly ingredients. And because HOST is a low moisture cleaning system, when you’re finished cleaning, the carpet is dry and ready to use immediately.

Mechanical action is required to break the oil bond and pull the dirt away from the carpet fibers. Then this loosened dirt must be removed. HOST is formulated to dissolve both types of dirt and then to absorb it. HOST cleaning doesn’t leave a sticky residue to cause rapid resoiling. A trace of SPONGES may remain in the carpet after vacuuming but it is not abrasive or harmful. This trace amount of SPONGES will be removed with subsequent vacuuming. It’s that simple!

What are those black lines around the skirting boards?

One of the most frequently asked carpet cleaning questions I’ve come across.  What are those black lines?  The answers is as follows -This type of soiling is called Soil filtration or draught marks . Its the airflow contaminants that are trying to pass through a door, the crack in the wall or gaps in floor boards. This contamination is similar to what you find in your air conditioning filter.As the air passes through the edge of the carpet pile, the microscopic  soiling is deposited there, (hence the term filtration soiling). This build up occurs over a extended period of time and is not noticed until a build up has occurred.

This type of soiling is very difficult to remove because the soil particles  are so fine that they penetrate deep into the carpet pile, sometimes into the backing of the carpet. So even when you remove them from the pile you may still see the stained carpet backing.

Removing this type of soiling  requires special cleaning agents to assist in the process.

To help prevent soil filtration, vacuum(with a good vacuum) and wipe the edges of the carpet on a regular basis.
