Renovating a home can be a challenge at the best of times and even for a seasoned renovator, but what can be more of a challenge is getting the dust and dirt out of the carpets once the renovating is complete.
Deep Steam Clean
This is where a professional carpet cleaning company can help – by doing a deep steam clean. All the dust from sanding down wood and walls will be taken out with a steam clean. The dust from sanding down gyprock walls is so fine it can act like a sand paper on carpet if it isn’t removed from the base of the carpet as well as the surface.
Using a carpet cleaning company that will firstly do a thorough pre vacuum and then a steam clean will lift that fine dust from the carpet fibres. Removing the dust will also be of benefit to asthmatics as the dust can bring on an asthma attack. When doing a steam clean on a home that has had a renovation done, it is important when doing the pre vacuum to pay particular attention to the edges of the carpet as this is where a lot of the dust will settle. The dust will work its way to the base of the carpet.
Using a Power Vacuum
The best way to remove the majority of the dust is with a power headed vacuum cleaning system. A professional carpet cleaning company would have a power head that vibrates on the surface of the carpet. This will shake the dust to the surface and make it easier to remove before the steam cleaning process.
With all the different trades in and out of the home during the renovation, the carpet will become flattened from constant foot traffic. It will need to be lifted again to give a nice appearance, and this can be done with the aid of a rotary spinning tool specially designed to bring the carpet pile back to life.
Removing Carpet Stains and Paint
When it’s time to do the painting in a renovation, there is always the chance of a spill. This is when your local carpet cleaning company will be needed. If the paint isn’t removed straight away, it could permanently damage the carpet, leaving a stain. If a spill has occurred, do not rub the carpet. Just scrape up as much of the paint as possible with a flat scraper first, then blot the rest up with a damp cloth. If oil based paint has been spilled, do not use thinners or turpentine to remove the paint, as the turps will start to dissolve the glue used on the backing of the carpet, and the carpet will just fall apart over time. The best thing to do is call your local carpet cleaner straight away to come out and remove the paint using a specially design cleaning solution that is safe for carpets.
Having a professional steam clean done will also put the final touch to the renovation and make the carpets look and feel new again, leaving them fully deodorised and sanitised.
