Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning Method

For most carpets or upholstery we clean, the initial deep clean we use consists of a number of steps we follow to give really fantastic results:


Set Up

1. First of all we setup our machines and equipment inside your home or office. 



2. We vacuum the carpet or upholstery in a systematic and thorough manner. The more dirt we remove at this early stage, the easier it is for us later on.


Spots and Stains

3. Next we go to work on any spots or stains with our chemicals, always having our hot water extraction machine ready on standby, to rinse out and extract our spotting chemicals, as they can be particularly strong, and once put into the carpet or pile, must be extracted at some stage.



4. After this we spray down the carpets with a pre-spray. What we use in our pre-spray depends entirely on the type of carpet or fabric we are cleaning. With most upholstery we like to use a fabric and fibre shampoo, combined with wool x, or active x chemicals.



5. Next we agitate the pre-spray. With carpets we use the Pro 35. Such a brilliant machine, that is perfectly suited for agitation. With more delicate upholstery we use either our scrunge or upholstery brush.





6. Now we extract using our Airflex Storm, Cleansmart’s flagship hot water extractor, combined with an acidic rinse in the solution tank to neutralise the pre-spray and spotting chemicals we have used earlier on.  With upholstery we use the Airflex Storm hooked up to the Sapphire Hand Tool.



7. On both carpets and upholstery we next brush and groom the pile back into place with our carpet or upholstery brush so it looks uniform.


Dampness & Humidity

8. Normally because our Airflex Storm has such powerful vacuums, we have very few problems with over wetting. But if we do have any, we get our industrial airmover into action, which dries them very quickly. It can also come in handy when the humidity in the room we are cleaning becomes a bit much.


Stain Protector

9. The last stage is an optional extra that some of our customers like to pay for, and that is to have protector sprayed onto their carpets or upholstery. The protector helps prevent you getting a stain on your carpet in future, by adding a protective layer that makes it difficult for coffee, tea, wine, etc, to penetrate deeply. The protector lasts a good five years, and is well worth the application in our opinion.


As you can see this is all quite a time consuming process, but it is a process that if followed correctly, can give great results. ShineTime has never been a company that cuts corners on quality.
