Best 1 Cleaning Specialises in Stain Removal
We specialise in stain removal and odour control as well as carpet steam cleaning and carpet dry cleaning. Stain and odor removal are two areas that require the expertise of a professional that understands how to effectively remove stains and odour from all sorts of materials from carpets to upholstery. Knowing what can and can’t be used on certain materials will remove the risk of damage.
One thing many carpet cleaners misunderstand is the importance of vacuuming. This is the most important part of a steam cleaning or dry cleaning process. It will help to remove the loose dirt and dust that lies deep down in the base of the carpet. This is the same for steam cleaning upholstery or dry cleaning upholstery. By doing a pre vacuum, all the bits that get dropped down under the cushions will be removed before and cleaning solutions are sprayed onto them. It’s important not to spray the cleaning products onto food scraps as it can start to run and smudge through the fabric, leaving permanent stains. As we all know foods have colouring in them, and these food colours can cause serious problems if they come in contact with most fabrics.
Removing odours can also be a problem if not treated properly. In some cases, doing a clean first then applying a deodoriser will help to remove the odour better. This is because the main of the stain and bacteria is being removed and this reduces the risk of the stains with the odour in it being spread into a different part of the area being cleaned.
Knowing which way around to do the odour removal should be done will help to fully remove the dour. This is no more apparent than when trying to remove cat urine, the hardest bad smell to remove from carpets, rugs or upholstery. Many people have been known to just throw out the item after an unsuccessful cleaning attempt by an inexperienced carpet cleaning company. This is where hiring the services of a professional carpet cleaner is best because if the odour isn’t fully removed, there should be no fee. Most professional cleaners would be able to tell a potential customer whether or not they can remove the odour before starting. This will save money in the long run.
How do you remove bad smells from carpets? This is a question every carpet cleaner would get asked at some point. The best thing to do is try and blot up the spill when it has first happened. There is no point trying to remove urine or some other bad smell once it has dried. Acting fast is the key, by blotting up as much as possible you are preventing the spill from working its way to the underlay. Once it gets to there, an extraction machine is the only answer. By getting to it fast, you reduce the chances of it making its way to the underlay.
With urine, it is always going to be best to have a carpet cleaner take a look at it. This will ensure that all the bacteria has been removed. This is something that has to be done with a cleaning machine. Using a specialised cleaning machine and solution, the stain and smell will be extracted into the waste tank and taken away by the cleaner.
For advice on carpet and upholstery cleaning, your local carpet cleaner should be able to point you in the right direction. This is what we do here at Best 1 Cleaning. We can advise you what to do in an emergency situation, such as flooded carpets or an accidental spill of red wine or make-up or any other type of stain. This can be valuable information. Too many people try and remove marks in carpets with household cleaners. In most cases, this just will not work, so it pays to contact a professional before trying anything yourself.
One of the things most homeowners panic about is wet carpet. This can be caused by a bath tub over flowing or a shower leaking or a burst pipe. But that main thing to do is contact a cleaning company with the right equipment straightaway. They can give a customer over the phone advice to tell them what to prepare before their arrival.
With wet carpets, the main thing is to isolate the water supply to the house first then get as many dry towels as possible and lay them down on the carpet. Wait till the cleaner arrives to extract the water. Once the water has been fully removed, blowers can be used to help with the drying process. This will depend on the humidity in the air. A professional cleaner will be able to advise on the best method for drying.
