Carpet Cleaning on the Sunshine Coast
[separator top=”-55″ bottom=”10″ style=””]
What should you expect from a professional carpet cleaning Sunshine Coast company? When having your carpets steam cleaned or dry cleaned, both systems work very well if done by a trained technician.
The Carpet Cleaning Process
The first step should be a pre vacuum of the carpets. This will help to remove any loose dirt. Dirt can build-up in the base of a carpet over time and this can result in staining to occur. No matter what type of carpet you have it should be regularly vacuumed.
After the vacuuming a spot stain treatment would be done; this is done by applying spotters to any stubborn stains in the carpet. They should be left on the mark for a few minutes to allow time for the cleaning agent to work. Once the spot treatment has been done the whole carpet should have a shampoo pre spray applied. This will remove any walk-way dirt that gets trodden into the carpet by everyday use. If the traffic areas are heavily soiled it may require an agitation.This will help the dirt and stains to release from the carpet fibres more easily.
Shampoo and Steam or Dry Cleaning
Once all of the carpeted areas have had the shampoo applied it is then time to start the cleaning process, whether having a steam clean or a dry clean done the previous steps are the same, it is only now that either a dry cleaning machine or a steam cleaning machine will be used, and again this decision is best left to the carpet cleaner doing the job, some carpets will react better to a steam clean and some better to a dry clean, this is why it is important to use a company that carries both types of equipment at all times.
Application of Deodoriser and Sanitiser
During the cleaning process a deodoriser and sanitiser will be added. This step will help to eliminate bacteria and bad odours. At this stage, the cleaning technician should ask the customer if they want the deodorizer. Some people are very sensitive to different fragrances and may ask that the deodoriser not be used.
Once all the rooms have been cleaned, a final inspection should take place to ensure nothing has been missed. It is important the cleaner do this before they pack away their equipment. Finally, if the carpet being cleaned has a thick pile, it would be best to groomed it after the cleaning. This will help in the drying time by standing the fibres up-right and leaving an even look to the carpet.
Cleaning Nylon Carpets
In many rental properties these days, owners are putting down nylon carpet. This is very easy carpet to clean and to remove stains from. This is good for tenants vacating a rental property at the end of a lease. But be mindful of spills that do occur when renting, because if they do become permanent, then the property manager may hold some of the bond back to try and have them removed. So prevention is better than cure when it comes to stains and spills in carpets, especially if you don’t own them and you have a high bond as security. The RTA holds all bond here in Queensland and will only release it once the real estate agent has done their final inspection and they are happy with it. So it pays to use a professional Sunshine Coast carpet cleaner that knows what a property manager expects from a clean.
