Carpet Cleaning

Carpet Cleaning service in Ascot

Cleaning Agents Ltd is the ONLY carpet cleaning company in Ascot, Bracknell and Windsor who are certified by the National Carpet Cleaning Association. This means that we know how to clean carpets, rugs and upholstery in the correct manner, no matter what type of fibre: Polyester, Wool, Silk, or even plant based fibres such as Sisal, Seagrass and Viscose (Rayon or Rolled Cotton).

How much does it cost to have a carpet cleaned?

Our carpet cleaning service usually includes moving furniture but we do offer a more affordable solution if you’d like us to target the dirty areas only. Please ask us to provide two quotes if you’d like some time to decide. On average the cost can range from £75 for spot cleaning, £200 for a full carpet cleaning service of a standard sized house, to over £800 for a large Kebbell home. When moving any furniture, we must place plastic protection underneath the wood or metal feet to prevent colour or rust transfer onto the carpet. This requires hoists, furniture sliders, and additional staff, so we hope you can understand why it’s better for us to view the property and discuss your specific requirements before being able to offer an accurate quote.

 

Will the cheap carpet cleaning service be the same quality?

Whichever service you choose, you will still receive the full professional carpet clean process. The best carpet cleaning method is

  • to first identify the type of fibre so that we know which cleaning solutions, type of bushes and stroking method that will be used to safeguard the warranty of your carpet.
  • We then remove the dry particles with a powerful Sebo Dart brush vacuum cleaning system. This prevents the dirt from turning into mud during the cleaning process.
  • The third step is to spray the selected solution, or carpet shampoo, and to try and remove stubborn stains with specialist cleaning solutions.
  • We gently agitate the carpet shampoo into the fibres with our contra-rotating brush system.
  • We rinse off the carpet shampoo with Hot Water Extraction to steam clean the carpet at the final stage. 

Although this multi-step process takes our team four times longer than any other service providers’, it helps us to clean your carpets much more thoroughly than any of our competitors. By using far less water, your floors will be dry within a few hours so that you can get back to your daily activities as soon as possible.

How do you remove carpet stains?

If our carpet cleaning process hasn’t removed the spot completely we then use solvent-based solutions, such as enzymes that break down proteins, or solvents that can remove oils. For more stubborn stains such as wine, that have been in the carpet for long periods, we can lighten the affected area for you to help it blend in with the rest of the carpet, but this will only be done as a final resort and will require consent before we proceed.

Which carpet cleaning method is best?

The type of cleaning method depends on the carpet fibre, its construction and the dye content.

  • Almost all carpets can be dry cleaned and the crystals that capture the dirt are vacuumed the following day. However the Hot Water Extraction (HWE) method reaches more dirt and rinses the dirt from the carpet with a high pressure, leaving it more hygienic.
  • Dry Cleaning can be performed in between HWE as a temporary affordable solution that targets high footfall zones. Dry cleaning such as Encapsulation or Dry Compound cleaning is a method used to clean fibres that shrink or discolour when wet. Such fibres are usually made from natural cellulose resources. Examples are cotton, linen, sisal and viscose. Viscose can be wet cleaned, but the fibres must be brushed in one direction only, to protect the structure of the delicate pile. Dry cleaning is also most suitable for very short pile carpet such as those found in offices.
  • In some cases Wet Carpet Cleaning can be performed on sensitive fabrics such as cotton, but with special low pH solutions and with fast drying equipment. Before you let someone touch your delicate fabrics, contact certified organisations (TACCA, NCCA or IICIC) to verify your service provider’s qualifications and memberships.

Carpet Cleaning Questions

Only 2 hours for the carpet to dry?

Combining the various steps in our carpet cleaning process we are able to offer dry carpets withing 2 hours after our service. Of course this would depend on the air circulation of the room, the condition of the carpets before the service, and the thickness of the pile. 

Although carpets will only be completely dry after 24 hours, you will be able to walk on your carpets within 2 hours without it feeling wet against your bare hands or feet, however we wouldn’t advise walking in socks just yet! In the fourth phase of the cleaning process Cleaning Agents use a brush machine that gently agitates the carpet during the pre-spray phase. This step not only removes most of the dirt from the carpet but also requires very little water. In the fifth phase Cleaning Agents uses a high pressure pump to extract this pre-spray. This allows us to rinse the pre-spray from the carpet with more water than with most other machines, allowing the carpet to dry very quickly.

A damp carpet could result in unpleasant odours, carpet shrinkage and a void in your warranty. If your current carpet cleaner uses the steam cleaning rinsing wand only, without a pre-spray, then it means there is too much water being pumped into your carpets in order to get it clean. Ensure that your carpet cleaner has been trained, ask for the certificate which proves he/she has passed the exam. Or look on the NCCA website to see if the company is a verified member.

I’m allergic to pets, how do you overcome this?

Upon registration we will determine your personal needs and we’ll use “pet-free” vacuum cleaners when visiting your home. If you’re allergic to anything just let us know and we’ll use the correct cleaning solutions.

Natural vs Synthetic Fibres

Natural fibres tend to turn yellow and shrink if subjected to a lot of water. Some natural fibres such as wool require cleaning solutions with a lower pH in order to maintain their structure and colour. If a natural fibre is rubbed aggressively this could damage the structure permanently. Our trained carpet cleaners are able to identify the fibre and clean it according to the manufacturer’s specifications in order to maintain your warranty.

Wet Carpet Cleaning vs Dry Carpet Cleaning

Wet carpet cleaning is described in our seven steps of the cleaning process. It uses two solvents and a hot water extraction pump to remove dirt from most types of carpets.

There are two types of dry carpet cleaning methods: A damp powdery compound is spread evenly onto the carpet which is agitated with a gentle brush; Or a wet liquid that’s highly volatile and forms a crystal around the dirt particles deep within the fibre. This latter solution is sprayed onto the carpet which is also agitated with a gentle brush. Both methods require a thorough vacuum cleaning afterward instead of a hot water extraction rinse. Both dry cleaning methods are recommended for carpets, rugs and upholstery that consists of dye that tends to bleed, or consists of natural fibres that tend to shrink or warp.

Using the correct cleaning method will ensure your warranty is still in place once the treatment is completed.

Ever noticed the edge of a carpet becoming darker over time? These are called DRAFT MARKS.

Filtration soiling occurs as a result of air being forced into the room or space at a higher rate than it can escape from the same area, via the ventilation system. The air then seeks alternative escape routes, which usually end up being the gap between the carpet and the wall trim and under closed doors. As the air is forced through these gaps, it passes through the carpet, which acts as a filter to the air. Any pollutants in the air are trapped by the carpet and turn the carpet gray or black in that area.

Common pollutants that can contribute to the problem include smoke from cigarettes and candles, cooking oils, fireplace ash, and dust. This soiling does not occur as a result of insufficient vacuuming or improper vacuuming techniques (although consistently failing to vacuum the very edge of the room can help to amplify the problem). It is a problem that can occur in the cleanest of homes and is not considered a reflection of housekeeping abilities. The soiling is generally from vehicle fumes, especially diesel. So it is greasy and clings to the fibres. It often leaves a permanent greyness to the carpet, wool being the hardest to get great results.

Illegal activities in the cleaning industry

Because it’s difficult to identify the type of biological dirt and pathogens which may have been extracted through carpet cleaning, it is a legal requirement to dispose of dirty solution through the toilet or sewage system. A cleaning technician can be fined up to £20,000 if they’re caught disposing the dirty carpet water down a rainwater pipe or into the garden. To adhere to this law, our technicians must use the toilet or external sewage system.

Here’s a link from the government website that describes the different water drainage systems.

What is Steam Cleaning?

What is Steam Cleaning?

Scientifically speaking, a steam-clean that ‘evapourates’ at 100 °C would damage carpet fibres and any glue that might be used to bond to the floor surface. Many customers mistake hot water extraction as steam cleaning. This is because the hot water that gets pumped into the carpet is so fast that it causes a light spray on the surface of the carpet before it gets vacuumed into the dirty water tank. This is especially visible in the winter cold months.

How does the steam cleaning method clean my carpets?

Cold water that’s mixed with cleaning solution is pumped through a narrow solution hose from a clean water tank toward the carpet (picture below). Before the water reaches the carpet, an integrated heater increases the temperature so that it reaches the carpet at about 60 °C. The high-pressured pump forces the hot water into the base of the carpet, yet the angle of the trajection avoids wetting the underlay, allowing a faster drying time. The pressurised solution captures dirt particles and is immediately extracted through a vacuum hose and deposited into a separate waste tank.
