Removing Dog Hair, Dust and other Fine Particles from Carpets
Hair on carpets can be difficult to remove. Most people try to remove dog hair with a vacuum cleaner. A good vacuum cleaner with a power head attachment will help to remove a good proportion of it, but the only way to remove it completely is to use a rubber rake.
Professional Carpet Cleaning
A professional carpet cleaning company would go over each room with a rubber rake prior to vacuuming or steam cleaning. The friction that the rubber rake creates over the carpet surface whilst being pulled backwards and forwards rolls the hair into balls, which can be vacuumed up.
When a professional carpet steam cleaner is used to clean carpets, they would use a vacuum cleaner with hospital grade filters. This type of filter will stop the small dust particles from being put back into the room whilst vacuuming.
A quality carpet cleaning job relies on a good thorough pre vacuum before starting the steam cleaning process. Steam cleaning machines are not designed to pick up hair and debris from the carpet. They are designed to lift or extract water or moisture.
Paying Attention to Edges
Particular attention should be made to the edges of the carpets where they meet the skirting boards. This area should not be over wet, as the edges are where there is a strip of nails. These nails are on a wooden board and are used to hold down the carpet. If the edges get to wet, then the nails will rust and this rust will come up to the surface of the carpet.
Removing Rust Stains
Rust in carpets can be easily removed if a carpet cleaner company is hire to sort it out. This process requires the aid of a specialise rust removal solution, which is applied to the carpet and then agitated and left to dwell for some time. After the technician is happy with the dwell time, the solution and the rust would be extracted out of the carpet.
Most rust stains are caused by feet ends on furniture made from steel. If an untrained carpet cleaner has done a steam clean and moved the furniture back onto the carpet before it has dried, this will cause rust and leave a stain on the carpet.
This is why it is so important to use a qualified carpet cleaning company that has an understanding of this sort of problem.
A professional carpet cleaner would place plastic squares under furniture as they are cleaning, so that the legs of the furniture are touching the carpet. These plastic pads can be removed by the customer after the carpets have fully dried. This is just another reason to choose a professional carpet cleaner company when in need of carpet cleaning. The results speak for themselves.
