Seven ways to keep your carpet clean for longer. As we mentioned many times in a past – carpets are one of the most expensive things you pay for in a lifetime. Probably you paid more  only for your house, car and furniture. So why do we make so many…

How to find the best carpet cleaners in your area?

How to find the best carpet cleaners in your area?


As stated above it’s always good to be sure, that whoever will clean your carpet or upholstery – they will be the best!
But let’s try to answer a simple question: what do we mean by “the best“?

It’s funny thing, as if you take a look at carpet cleaners adverts, one of the most common phrases are “we are the best“, “choose the best“. Not to mention my personal favourite – “you tried the rest, now try the best” 😜 . Of course, most of us (carpet cleaners) think, that there is no other carpet cleaning company in our area that provide such an amazing service and we are soooooo good, that we should be fully booked at least a year ahead 😁 . But based on our still pretty short, 6 years experience – it doesn’t matter what we say about us, what really matter is what customer think about results of our work!

REVIEWS

If you want to take your wife to a restaurant to celebrate anniversary, you’re not going to choose a random place. I bet, that as you want to be sure she’ll be happy you will check a place first. Happy wife = happy life 😁. And what’s the best way to check quality of service? – Yes, you are absolutely right – REVIEWS!
So if you want to be sure, that you choose a right carpet cleaners – check not what we say about ourselves 🙂 , check what customers think about our work. As lets face it – every tradesman will tell you everything you want to hear to get your business, but previous customers will prove, was that true! So before you choose someone, who would take care of your carpets and upholstery – check, what customers already think about quality of service!

EXPERIENCE AND TRAINING

Another thing you have to consider, if you want to be sure, that your carpets will be cleaned properly. That your expensive Belgian Wilton carpet will not shrink after cleaning and your beloved Axminster 100% wool won’t get browning after. Training is essential, although we noticed lately that not all carpet cleaners start that great journey with training courses. They rather decide to learn cleaning your posessions and watching, what will happen 🙂 . Is experience important? – Of course, we get smarter every single day, every single job let us learn new things. Even if we think, that we have seen everything – there is always something, that can surprise us. Obviously it’s pretty interesting, if you see an advert of 24 years old carpet cleaner claiming, that he has 20 years of experience 😁 . That was an early start I guess 😀 ) , but that is a different story 😜

EQUIPMENT

Well, plenty of things we could say here. Let’s be honest – there are some essential tools, that need to be used to deliver great results. I’m not saying, that powerful Truck Mounted cleaning system makes you a great carpet cleaner straight away – definitely not, as it’s just a tool. And you need certain skills to make that tool works. Simply to be sure, that carpet and sofas are cleaned up to customers standards. If that would be so easy – we all would be great mechanics, dentists, builder just because we have tools. To use a tool – we need training and experience . On the other side – if you pay a top price for someone showing with a pretty common, rental, red carpet cleaning machine 😂 – you should rethink, is it something you really want to do 🙄 .

WELL ESTABLISHED BUSINESS

I think that really matters as well, although not everyone would agree with that. Of course, there is plenty of great carpet cleaners just starting that fantastic journey. But from a customer point of view – well established business gives more confidence. It’s funny, not sure if you do the same, but if you choose to purchase something from eBay. Would you go with a seller with 1000’s items sold in last few years or a seller with 50 items, selling from an account, that has been recently added? Again – I’m far from saying, that new carpet cleaning companies are bad. It’s just it’s easier to trust businesses present on market for years. If there were here many years ago, there is a massive chance, that they will be there in many, many more years 😁 . We’ve been trading since 2014 and hope to trade for at least next 20 years, don’t think that we’ll be able to do it longer, we’re not getting younger, that’s for sure 😂 .

So remember, dear customers – do your research, before you choose. And if you are not sure – always ask, that could save you lot’s of unpleasent surprises 😉 .

Seven ways to keep your carpet clean for longer.

Seven ways to keep your carpet clean for longer.

As we mentioned many times in a past – carpets are one of the most expensive things you pay for in a lifetime. Probably you paid more  only for your house, car and furniture. So why do we make so many mistakes and not care properly for something so expensive? Here’s the few tips, that should help you keep your carpets clean for longer. 


No 1.  Take off your shoes inside a house.

It’s the simplest, the easiest and the cheapest way to keep your carpet clean for much longer. We all know, that weather is unpredictable in the United Kingdom, so even without noticing we can transfer extreme amount of dirt to our carpets just by walking on it. Another extremely effective way to stop dirt form spreading is covering part of entrance with runner or a mat. 
That gives you a great protection against dirt – it would stay trapped in something covering your hallway. 


No 2Use vacuum on a regular basis.

Sounds like a silly thing, but trust me – it works. Try to be sure, that you use a decent vacuum cleaner, preferably one with a roller brush. Why? Because that way you can pick up much more dirt, not to mention pet hairs. There are two more important things about using a vacuum cleaner: speed and the height of brush. You can’t vacuum carpet to fast, as your vacuum 
cleaner wouldn’t be able to pick up enough dirt. If we talk about the height of a roller brush – if it will be to low, you can damage carpet, if it will be to high – whole process would not work. 


No3
If you have pets – try to be sure, that they’re trained to urinate outdoors.

Urine stains are really difficult to be removed, especially from natural fibers, not to mention awful smell. You have to remember, that biggest problem with the urine is that it stays not just in a carpet, but also in the underlay. As a result – it requires a special urine treatment and in some cases underlay has to be replaced. 

No4Treat stains straight away. 


But be really careful, as wrong choice of weapon could set the stain and make it permanent. We strongly advise not to use a stain removers from a supermarket shelf, as they could be too strong for your carpet (wool carpets, for example) and could literally bleach a colour. It happens pretty often, that they leave sticky residue in your carpet as well. As a result – carpet gets dirty extremely fast after that kind of treatment. 

What is the safest way?


We always suggest going with a cold water (as a hot one could set a stain – blood, for example) and a white paper or terry towel as a first resort. That way you will change dilution of a spillage, and you will remove as much as possible without using harsh chemicals. 
Always remember not to rub a carpet, just blot it. Rubbing will only push the source of dirt deeper, not to mention it could damage fibers. 


No5Clean carpets professionally. 


Well, that sounds like another simple thing to do, but many people forget that it should be done roughly every 12 months. Just remember, we’re talking about a professional carpet cleaning, not some cowboys using 
DIY machines. I’m sure that you have heard stories about carpet cleaners arriving with something looking like a little bit bigger wet vacuum and pretending to be professionals.

Unfortunately size matter, in most cases, the bigger machine, the more powerful vacuums. That means carpet is cleaned deeper and drying time is second to none. The most powerful machines are self-sufficient truck mounted cleaning machines. They don’t even require access to your water and electricity, so no messing with buckets or wires around your house. 


No6Be careful when use stains removers.


If you decide to use a spot remover from the supermarket shelf – try it in some inconspicuous area first to see, how it’s going to affect the carpet. The reason I mention that is simple – some spot removers contain oxidizers, so could possibly bleach your carpet. It is much safer to try it in some corners or under furniture. The worst case scenario – you will bleach the carpet in a corner area instead of creating a massive mark in the middle of a living room. 

No7Stay away from so-called “discount carpet cleaners”. 


Well, as they always say – you get what you pay for. If you think, that the price for your carpet to be cleaned is so low, that you can’t believe, how lucky you are – you will probably end up with damaged goods.

Professional carpet cleaning it’s a process that requires time, knowledge, and equipment. As you need your carpets to be cleaned probably once in 12 months, it’s worth to choose a reputable company, even if you have to pay a little bit more.
