Carpet Cleaning (New Version 2021)

Get rid of dirt, stains and micro organism with our dry carpet cleaning service.

Why do carpets need to be cleaned?

If it’s been weeks, months, or even years since the last time you gave your carpet a thorough clean, chances are there is an unbelievable amount of dirt, dust, and other microorganisms accumulated in it, causing the air in your offices and homes to be impure.

Health Risks of Dirty Carpets

 

Why should carpets be professionally cleaned?

Giving your carpets a professional clean at least twice a year also grants you the added benefit of prolonging the life of your carpet, making your investments worthwhile.

While regular vacuuming may be sufficient to keep the surface of your carpet clean, there are many more benefits you and everyone under the roof can reap from a professionally treated carpet, that goes beyond just a fresher look.

Carpet Cleaning Methods

Different Types of Carpet Cleaning Methods (Real Life Example)

The cleaning methodology that works wonders.

(Before/After Carpet Cleaning Video)

While our weapon of choice is Dry Carpet Cleaning, there are also a couple more methods the professionals use in the market today.

Hot Water Extraction Cleaning

Known as ‘Steam Carpet Cleaning’, it emphasises on the use of high-pressure hot water to allow for dirt to be efficiently dissolved.

Carpet Shampooing

Similar to how our hair may feel uncomfortable and sticky without a proper wash after shampooing, carpets are no different.

Encapsulation

Professionals believe this to be a ‘level-up’ to the Carpet Shampooing method, as it performs similarly while using lesser water. In fact, Encapsulation carpet cleaning uses 80% less liquid than conventional carpet shampoo.

Bonnet Cleaning

Bonnet Cleaning for carpets yields great results with a heavy-duty motorised machine that effectively absorbs dirt from the carpet. It’s convenience brought about high demand in high foot-traffic areas such as hotels and restaurants.

Different Cleaning Methods for Different Carpet Sizes

There are many solutions on how to clean carpets yourself. But DIY methods using home remedies often involve investing a lot more time, while results often vary; with some cases even making the carpet smell worse after cleaning.

While you can attempt to wash smaller ones on your own, bigger carpets and carpeted floors, such as those in the office, would often be better off with professional carpet cleaners.

Determining carpet sizes

While it’s perfectly natural to shop for carpets based on how beautiful it compliments our dining area or bedrooms, there are certain ‘guidelines’ that you should consider abiding by, just to be on the safe side.

These are the recommended carpet size according to the size of your rooms:

Carpet – Room
3’x 5′ – 5′ x 7′
5′ x 8′ – 7′ x 10′
8′ x 10′ – 10′ x 12′
9′ x 12′ – 11′ x 14′
12′ x 15′ – 14′ x 17′

If you’re unsure about the sizes of your carpet, fret not as there are many ways to get the answer.

Using a measuring tape, simply measure your carpet by its length, then breadth in feet. If you don’t have a measuring tape lying around for a precise measurement, you may use an average two-seater sofa, which spans no longer than 6 feet in length. So if your carpet more or less fits when compared side-by-side, that carpet is more than likely measuring 4 by 6 ft.

Likewise, a three-seater sofa is roughly 8 feet long, and if your carpet measures just slightly longer, it’s probably a 6 by 9 ft carpet.

Soiled compound will be thoroughly removed and discarded at the end of the carpet cleaning treatment. As we do need to rinse the carpet after the cleaning treatment, we will not discard any water waste after the cleaning is completed.

Not every stain can be removed during the cleaning treatment. Stain removal depends on the nature of the stain – i.e. age of stain, type of stain, which stain removal product was used prior to our cleaning treatment.

Carpet often smells bad when the moisture in the carpet is not dried sufficiently after shampooing. As mould and bacteria grow in the damp carpet, these microorganism would emit musky odour.

Surfactants in shampoo often cause shampooed carpet to become sticky if the carpet is not rinsed sufficiently. Dirt particles will attach on sticky surfaces easily. So, if shampooed carpets are not rinsed appropriately, carpets may look dirty soon after cleaning.
