Do you look at your carpets, rugs, upholstery or even your mattress and think,
they have changed colour from the dirt accumulated over time? Is there a
smell? Have your kids or husband dropped a drink or food? Are you
embarrassed when friends pop over? Would you like St Helens carpet
cleaners to assist you?
Your furnishing is expensive. You work hard for your things in life.
Changing or replacing your furnishings can be a major headache and can cost a lot of
Emptying the room, uplifting the old carpet, probably replacing the underlay, then
refitting, returning your items to that same room. Some people also don’t like the smell
of a new carpet. We have cleaned newly laid carpets to help remove gases which
some people are sensitive to.
Instead of doing the above why don’t you have your fabrics professionally cleaned?
Like a car has a Mot your furnishings needs the same love to keep them in the best
So how would you benefit from working with us?
Well, we have been in this industry for many years now, in fact, this is our last year as
being a teenager. Yes, we are in year 19 of carpet cleaning St Helens.
So a bit about what our services include.
This picture shows what colour change has occurred which is dirt, grime and bacteria. We charged our customer £55.00 for this particular job
We are based close to the M62, so can be with you within 10 minutes. We can visit you quite quickly, even same day pending our workload.
We use a variety of techniques.
Our most common system used is steam cleaning hwe( hot water extraction) Other systems which we can use are a dry cleaning method or
a low moisture system.
All have their benefits.
Let me explain this to you.
Steam cleaning carpets
Steam or very hot water is the most popular system used by professional carpet cleaners.
This method allows very hot water or steam to penetrate the fibres of your materials from top to bottom which assists in the removal of any
grease, grit, odours, dust mites plus other nasties which may be harmful, especially if someone suffers from allergies.
Chemicals may also be used before any cleaning takes place. This aids in breaking down any soils plus any contaminants. This is by far the
most common system used and can be exercised on man-made fibres, and some natural fibres.
This procedure always starts with hoovering. A typical living room would take us ten minutes. Using a crevice tool on all edges and corners.
Not all companies do this as they believe the power of their vacuums will remove all loose contaminants, however, this is what we do.
We want as much grit, dander, sand, in our hoover. We don’t want our main machine to get dirtier than needs to be or clogged up with mud.
You would be surprised at the level of muck which is extracted just at this first phase.
The carpet is then treated for any obvious stains such as tea, coffee and urine. These areas are then flushed clean. The whole area is treated
with our chosen cleaning compound based on our survey. Normally an alkaline treatment is used. Sometimes we use green products if a
customer so wishes. The fibres are now upright. This allows our chemicals applied to penetrate the cleaning area which is normally a dwell
time of 10 minutes. We use a crb machine to massage any chemicals deep into your carpet. As in any trade, preparation is key.
The machinery we believe is the best on the market.
Water pressure is capable of reaching over 1200psi, running from our truck mount, however, this level of pressure would never be used unless
we are dealing with hard floors, such as tile cleaning. We use no more than 400 psi. We allow our chemicals to do work for us. They are my
invisible assistant. Powerful vacuums will uplift any moisture and all residues, leaving all fibres touch dry on completion.
If long fibres are part of the makeup we will comb these back into place.
As our years of training has helped us identify fibres to be cleaned, we could not use this system on Wiltons as these are prone to shrinkage
with water pressure. We would use another cleaning system such as dry cleaning or low moisture.
Low moisture carpet cleaning
This particular system is used on more sensitive fibres, those that would either shrink or distort using the HWE or steam method.
Again a thorough hoovering is required. Around 85% of any dirt embedded within your fibres are removed during this initial process. As this
wording states this is low moisture. So how does this work? We use a rotating cleaning machine, with an attached wool pad that moves along
the surface. At the same time, our operator releases small amounts of water using a trigger mechanism, which comes into contact with the
wool padding, which then agitates, and cleans fibres at the same time.
A disadvantage of this system is that you will not get a deep-down clean. Only about 20% of the surface area is penetrated with this type of
clean. Odours are very difficult to remove.
An advantage is that an area cleaned would be dry within 30 minutes or less.
This system would be used on large commercial contracts such as hotels or care homes.
Dry cleaning system.
Although we say dry, a minimal amount of moisture is applied whether this is chemical or water.
A dry compound is liberally applied and is then agitated deep into the carpet. This compound resembles the look of sand. Same colour. When
these come into contact with the chemical, a reaction takes place. This reaction allows the compound to remove odour, break any dirt and
grease, which is after a 20 minute dwell time hoovered up. Using a crb machine to agitate the compound deep.
The advantages of this system are that the carpet will be dry when finished.
The disadvantage is that it will not be thoroughly cleaned. It has limitations when not using heat or pressure.
When we have dogs these lovely creatures bring with them some negative issues such as smells from their sweat, fur tangled in the fibres.
Urine issues be it an accident as a pup.
take a view at our process.
You may think that your carpet does not smell, but does it?
Have you taken a nose test? Got on your hands and knees. If you have dogs the answer will be yes. You have will have become nose blind.
Your pet will have laid down, sweated, slobbered, and dribbled. All of this moisture and dander has to go somewhere.
The smell could be odour caused by bacteria, or ammonia from a urine accident. Don’t forget the dust mites.
Hoovering alone will not keep your fabrics clean. A vacuum only sucks up grit, sand and some hair.
As a rule of thumb, an average home will have their carpets and upholstery cleaned every 5 years, when in fact you’re furnishing should be
cleaned every 12 months at least. Odours build up over time, you become used to it until it reached the level of odour is very evident.
Stains can be an eyesore, and embarrassment even. Most stains can be removed as long as no attempt has been made by you. These so-
called stain removers bought at your local store can cause you a lot of stress.
You follow their instructions, but a few days later it is back which is called wicking, or your even cause damage by bleaching the fibres.
Sometimes you can get lucky if you have not sealed the stain in, however, if the stain is sealed into the fibres that stain cannot be removed by
any expert carpet cleaners in St Helens. We may be able to re-dye the area.
My team are very experienced, well trained in what they do.
We only use quality chemicals which in combination with our powerful machinery and experience helps us achieve excellent results for you.

Tips for our customers
If you have dogs we suggest you vacuum every day. Moving your vacuum slowly to ensure maximum capture high quantities of dander, and
grit. If the grit is
not controlled it can build up and start acting like sandpaper. Rubbing at the base of a carpet or rug, loosening fibres creating a hole. If you
don’t control the dander, odours will start to be noticed very quickly.
In any event, you have a solid spillage such as food, pick up the solids immediately. If any remnants remain, use a spoon. Always work inwards
and towards the centre. This will control spreading the stain. Once this has been completed, apply our stain remover. Use a clean damp towel
and press down on the area until the stain has lifted. Repeat the process if required.
Tea or coffee stain removal
I would advise this.
Act quickly. Absorb as much liquid as possible using a towel. Apply pressure each time you use a clean towel. Never rub. In a lot of instances,
this will be sufficient. If the liquid changes the colour of your carpet don’t panic. We can use special acids which can reverse the colour
