Carpet cleaning tips
Prepare the following solution
Detergent and Vinegar Solution: One teaspoon of gentle detergent (for washing woolens) to half a pint(0.75 litres) of warm water. Add one tablespoonful of white (not malt) vinegar.
Final Rinse Solution: Mix one-part white vinegar with four-parts water. Pour mixture into a spray bottle.
Blot up surplus spillage. Use Detergent Vinegar Solution. Work from the outer edge of the staininwards, using a little at a time, blotting up with dry cloths frequently. Follow final rinseprocedure.
Final Rinse Procedure
Spray over stained area. Blot dampened area (do not rub) to remove excess moisture. Spread white kitchen towels (stacked 6-8 sheets deep) over the affected area and place a weight, such as a book, directly on top. This will help moisture residue to soak into the towels. Leave overnight and repeat if necessary.
– Do not over wet into backing materials.
– Always test any detergent on an inconspicuous area of carpet prior to treating a stain.
– Use detergents at recommended dilution ratios.
– Scrape or blot up any excess prior to treatment.
– Never rub or scrub
Urine and animal smells
We all love our pets, but its comes at a cost. At sometime in your carpets life they will smell. No matter how much hoovering we do. To tackle this problem we can eliminate the animal smell with our powerful odour removal applications, followed by a deep carpet clean. When it comes to urine its a similar story. Animals will have accidents. We use powerful chemicals which are applied to your carpets or upholstery which will loosen the urine salts , and allow us to remove as much urine as possible from the carpets fibres.
In certain circumstances the urine may have penetrated the backing of the carpet and entered into the underlay or even sub floor. In these rare situations we would have to pull back the carpet and treat the sub floor,then a fine mist on the underlay which is dried out followed by a clean to the backing of the carpet and then a deep clean to the top of the carpet.
