Our 6 Most Frequently Asked Questions
As a guide though, we would say a few hours to have the carpet perfectly dry depending on the above factors.
We endevour to remove all stains, but if the stain has already caused permanent damage to the fibres, this may not be possible. With any stain, we recommend you do not use household cleaners on it prior to professional help as a combination of the product and scrubbing/agitation can cause damage.
Think of a radish and a carrot. A radish can be white on the inside and pink on the outside, this is how we describe a carpet stain that has not been scrubbed or worked on and the stain remains on top of the fibres. A carrot is orange all the way through, so could have already caused permanent damage to the fibres, permanently stained carpet.
The type of carpet also plays a part in stains being ‘removeable’. A wool carpet for example can easily absorb stains as it has ‘fish scales’, where as a polypropylene carpet is more likely to repel stains as it is more plastic based.
This is a common myth unfortunately. Your will notice that your carpets get soiled at the same rate as before cleaning but because the carpet is cleaner, it can appear more noticeable.
When detergents are used, a residue can be left in the carpet, meaning the carpet can go sticky and attract more soil very easily and quickly. We clean using the latest technology and solutions, so strong chemicals and detergents are a no no for us. We rinse through any cleaning solution that we use with an acidic rinse solution. As well as giving the carpet a ‘conditioner’, this also leaves the carpet safe on the pH scale.
We have undergone extensive training to identify points of concern, so can certainly advise if we think there is a danger of shrinkage. One reason for shrinkage is the introduction of too much water to the carpet that the face fibers, or backing absorb. With the extensive drying steps that we take, this is not likely to happen.
Absolutely, but please be aware that there is a reason we undergo as much training as we do. We are able to identify issues that may arise. Its also worth considering that a shop rented machine may not have been sanitised between visits so you could be cross contaminating your carpet with the previous users dog wee, blood, or worse!
Shop rented machines also tend to not be as powerful as our machinery, so if you do hire a machine, make sure you give as much attention to the drying as you do to the actual clean itself. Opening windows is a must, and if possible try to do this on a warm day.
The product that is generally supplied with these machines is a general cleaner. We advise that you try and match your problem to the bottle of cleaner that is supplied.
Hiring a machine from shops will generally not remove issues of dog urine odours as this may already be deeper rooted in the carpet. Sometimes, carpet needs to be pulled up and underlay to be replaced. See more about hiring a carpet cleaning machine
