Recently our cleaning company was booked to provide an end of tenancy cleaning in a flat within a luxurious residential development located in Millharbour, Canary Wharf.

Together with the initial apartment deep cleaning we had an arrangement in place to professionally clean the carpeted rooms in the property. For our amazement we have found out that one of the bedrooms  floor was at big trouble, it’s current state seemed to extend our carpet cleaner pre-planned time for washing it.

The questions was: what it will save us time to get it done promptly but also with fine results?

Pre-Inspection of the carpet

Our carpet cleaner walked through property to visually inspect and familiarise himself with carpet. He identified potential problems like:

  • Hair and hair particles

  • Dust around the edges and under furniture

  • Soil and grime

  • Loose debris

  • Permanent stains of different types

To figure out the final result was easy and straightforward, despite the poor condition and the stains approximate evaluation of final outcome was positive.

Vacuum clean carpet

The most important task is vacuum clean the carpets with proper hoover. Carpeted floors within the property were thoroughly vacuumed with a special powerful equipment to remove hair, dust, dry soil etc. We got rid of dry soil by an extensive vacuuming as this operation is considered as one of the most important tasks before carpet cleaning take place.

Remember: Always vacuum clean the carpets properly. This will help a lot when the actual carpet cleaning is taking place.

DID YOU KNOW THAT: The ordinary working adult is spending far less hours on house cleaning errands and much more time to chill out or on holidays than 16 years ago. The fast growing domestic cleaning industry yields an occasion for newbie cleaning companies with advanced business models and methods to win first-time clients and a huge market portion from established cleaning firms.

Moving light furniture

Next step was to move around the light furniture. Reason behind this is that dust accumulates always around it. It is essential to clean under and behind any furniture. We have moved easily stuff like:

  • Chairs

  • An armchair

  • Bed side table

  • Bed itself

  • Bed drawers

Important: We had to move it with considerable attention because of the tiny space we got to operate.

Pre-Spray procedure

A special preconditioning solution was registered to dissolve traffic area soil and generally any stained spots for fine carpet cleaning. We use professional general purpose pre-spotter for traffic areas, pre-spray solution for carpets. Which is quite outstanding for draught marks and some greasy areas. We did apply by bottled sprayer to all heavily soiled lanes before actual machine carpet cleaning. The professional liquid itself brings light citrus fragrance to the room.

Pre-Spot, stain treatment

Difficult looking stains are pre-treated with special chemicals depending on the type of spilled drink. We usually apply:

  • Red Rx for wine, carbonated drinks, juice drinks etc.

  • Solvex for oily stains this is to increase chances of complete removal.

Soil Extraction and Rinse

We use the most advanced carpet cleaning machines on the market. The carpet fibre was comprehensively rinsed by the most advanced professional extraction cleaning method without drenching carpets or without passing on a sticky and tenacious residue behind.

Post Spot Treatment

Any unusual spots or stains still remaining will get an additional handling with our many specialty spotting solutions like Solvall Spotter, Ink removing agents also used for make ups. For longer life, better appearance and fewer permanent stains, we advise clients to ask for a professional fibre protector to be applied to your carpet after is dry.

Grooming the carpets

At the end of the task client carpet was groomed with a professional groomer so that the pile of your carpet is standing tall when we leave. Post grooming assists the carpet pile dry promptly and in the optimal position.

Speed or turbo drier

For faster drying times during winter season it is essential to dry the carpets by using high velocity air mover. These are placed in the rooms during the carpet cleaning procedures to promote better drying times.

Conclusion: It is very important to vacuum the carpet before applying carpet cleaning procedures. Due to enormous foot traffic, carpet fibre gets attracted to all the dirt particles, soil, pet hair, fungi and other contaminants which partially could be separated by vacuuming.
