This polypropylene carpet in Cheltenham had taken a real beating over the years. A large accumulation of grease from the kitchen is the cause for the concentrated dirt build up. This is because the grease attracts any soil and will cling to it. This problem is compounded by the fact that this carpet is looped. Due to this the dirt (and grease in this case) are going to be harder to remove. This requires more cleaning solution and more rinse water. These loops will also make the carpet harder wearing, so a yearly clean would prevent too much soil build up.

The example of carpet cleaner Cheltenham below shows just how the carpet can look after the right cleaning solution is used;

Carpeted stairs are also an area in the household which will receive a high concentration of footfall and soil. Couple this with the fact that many of us are guilty of not regularly vacuuming this area, and you’d be surprised at what can be pulled out of the carpet. Below is a photo of the stairs carpet in the same property which showed up nicely too:

When the carpet cleaning Cheltenham was completed, all the carpets looked as good as new. With the correct maintenance these carpets will last for years to come. Also of note, is that after the initial 6 months of being harder wearing than a woollen carpet, it will soon become dull in areas of regular footfall. This effect can be significantly reduced with a regular maintanence clean every 12 months.

Carpet Cleaner Stroud – Ink and Spills

Carpet Cleaner Stroud

If you’re looking for a carpet cleaner Stroud, here’s what we can do for you. The small black stain on this carpet was an ink stain which had not been treated in any way. This meant the ink was not spread around and much more controllable when treating. Because it was a smaller area to treat it meant the risk of further spreading was lower. On the other hand, frequent blotting was required to help control this, but resulted in an effective removal. The two larger stains were spills of some sort and required a bit more attention. Because this carpet pile was so long, plenty of agitation was required on these spills. In order to reach the further down the carpet fibres a soft brush was required (as seen below). Thankfully, this carpet had a 100% polypropylene face pile which meant it was fairly resistant to water soluble stains such as these.

These stains are considered problem stains because they need to be tackled seperately from general soiling. Therefore advanced stain treatment techniques are necessary, especially in the cases of wine and tea stains. As this carpet is solution dyed polypropylene, the risk of colours being set in is reduced greatly due to the ‘impervious’ nature of the material. However, the improper use of certain household carpet spotters can create the conditions needed for permanent colour loss/damage, so be careful when using these products.

So the advanced stain treatment was a success thanks to the stains being relatively recent, and the polypropylene face pile was an advantage in this case. As the last photo shows, the carpet looked good when finished with.
