Clean and Allergy Protect
Amazingly clean carpets, with added protection against spots, spills, stains and Allergens!
If you or a member of your household are allergy sufferers our Clean and Allergy Protect service is the perfect service for you. The Clean and Allergy Protect service has all the same great benefits of the Clean and Protect service but has the extra benefit of giving added protection from the allergens created by dust mites and fungal mould spores.
We clean the carpet thoroughly then add our specialist product, Stainshield with Actiguard. Stainshield give protection against spots, spills and stains by creating an invisible protective shield around each fibre.
Actiguard gives protection against allergies by eliminating dust mites, which are one of the leading causes of allergens within the home. Actiguard also has a residual effect preventing dust mite colonisation therefore giving lasting relief. Actiguard also works against fungal spores within the carpet fibres, further enhancing its effect.
The Clean and Allergy Protect service is not only the perfect solution for allergy sufferers but also Asthma and Eczema Sufferers too. It is also totally safe for all pets and children.
The main benefits of the Clean and Allergy Protect service are
- Amazingly clean carpet
- Protection against stains
- Protection against dust mites
- Protection against fungal spores
- Carpets look cleaner for longer
- Carpet’s lifespan is extended
Here is how the Clean and Allergy Protect service is performed
We start the cleaning process by inspecting your carpet and then we select the best cleaning solutions suited to it’s construction and condition. This careful approach means we can achieve the best possible results for your carpets.
We thoroughly vacuuming your carpets with our powerful vacuum cleaner to remove as much dry soils as possible. A thorough deep clean always starts with this step and should never be missed out!
Next we will apply a Pre-treatment to the carpet. This will begin to break the bond between the soils and the carpet fibres. The Pre-spray solution we use will be tailored to the individual needs of your carpet and the soiling present. By using the correct cleaning solutions we can remove the maximum amount of dirt and allergens possible giving fantastic results.
After applying the Pre-treatment we use an agitation device to work the treatment into and around the carpet fibres. The agitation device we use is selected appropriately to the item being cleaned and so will not cause any damage. We may use a mechanical brush, a hand brush or even just a soft cloth. This agitation phase will not only achieve effective cleaning but will also aid in gently lifting matted fibres and restoring the pile texture.
5) Dwell Time
We then allow the Pre-cleaning solution time to work on the soils in the carpet. In much the same way a baking tray is left to soak before cleaning, the Pre-cleaning solution needs time to work to its maximum effect, separating the maximum amount of soiling and allergens from the fibres.
Now we get to the impressive part! Once the soils have been loosened and released from the fibres it is time to remove them completely. To do this we use a powerful extraction machine, mounted in our van, which will suck the dirt up and away from your home, via a long hose. At this point you will see a dramatic difference in your carpets, they will look and smell clean, revitalised and brighter.
7) Stain Treatment
During the cleaning process we will also treat any spots, spills and stains. Many spots and marks will be removed by the cleaning process described above. Some stains however will require specialist treatments. We are trained in specialist spot and stain treatments and will apply this knowledge in the correct way to achieve the maximum results possible.
When the cleaning process is complete we groom the carpets with a specially designed brush to remove any imperfections created by the cleaning process leaving the fibres aligned and looking fresh and revitalised!
9) Stain and Allergy Protection
At this stage we apply Stainshield with Actiguard, this forms an invisible, odourless shield around each and every fibre making spots, spills and stains much easier to remove. It also makes daily vacuuming much more effective keeping your carpets looking fantastic for longer and extending it’s life by years. It also eliminates dust mites and fungal spores along with giving a residual protection against these allergy producing pests.
We leave a fan in the room which is specially designed to create an air current within the room. This accelerates the drying time of the carpet. The amount of moisture each type of carpet fibre absorbs varies tremendously so it is difficult to give an exact drying time however as a general rule carpets are dry between one and six hours.
In many situations involving spots stains and very small areas of carpet I have a small professional carpet cleaning machine. This smaller machine along with some specialist blood and protein stain remover.read more
While I was recently cleaning some carpets for a customer in Bovey Tracey I discovered this rather nasty tea stain. It had been there for a number of months and had set in to the 80% wool carpet.read more
