We are your local carpet cleaners in Widnes.
Our staff have all attended courses run by Ncca and Iicrc. This is where the basics are taught from fibre identification, methods and chemicals for many furnishing’s.
These courses become more intense with the intermediate and advanced. No member of staff works alone who has not only qualified but has also been in the field with one of our seasoned technicians learning advanced plus secret techniques.

What this tells us is this.
What your fibre is. Is it man-made, wool, or a combination? We determine this by taking a small fibre and lighting it. How it burns and smells is gives us the answer we need.
We can now determine the correct method to use, heat, and water pressure.
I can also advise the customer how long it will take, plus what results they can expect, including drying times.
Before any work takes place, we hoover. This is a very important part of the process. Not only does this remove around 85% of any loose contaminants, but it also shows us which way the pile should be.
A typical living room can take up to ten minutes. Using the compass method, going back and forth, east, and west. We want as much dry soil in the vacuum.
The ph. strengths range from 2.5 for the acids, 7.5 neutral, rising to 13 for the alkaline. Also included in our arsenal are gels, tea and coffee stain removers, deodorisers, oxy agents, rust and red wine removal products.
Stain removal is very important. These can become an eyesore, so we do our utmost to dislodge these for you.
Our machines can generate heat to 150f. The vacuum system can recover water from 150 feet away.
Compare this power and technology against the DIY solutions.
We will liberally apply our solution, which will then be agitated and left to dwell for ten minutes at least.
We can now proceed. Normally, a psi pressure of 300 is used with a temperature of around 130f.
This level of heat suffices to remove dust mites, grease, grime and most odours.
Odours come in a multitude of ways.
From urine to general smells.
Using dedicated odour eating chemicals, we can put these either in our freshwater system, or apply when the work is completed, or we way do both. It just depends on the level of stink we are dealing with.

This is a porous product and can be damaged if tackled by someone who is not trained in this field. Being able to identify the hide is essential. Does the pigment run? Is removal of grease required, if so how do we do this?
Again, different solutions, smaller detailed hand tools are required when sanitising your upholstery. First, we pre-vacuum any loose contaminants. Our furniture chemical is then applied. We agitate this either by hand using a soft brush or a drill brush.
Why not consider having your items stain guarded after cleaning. One of our team can demonstrate this for you.
This is an application applied when all works are completed. It creates a barrier for all fibres so should a spillage occur the liquid will reside on the surface allowing you time to dab this up.
The DIY enthusiast may be contemplating tackling their furnishing. There are a lot of pitfalls you need to consider.
1/ What is this fibre? Artificial, natural, mixed? Can you identify the difference? We can.
2/ Are my stains removable. Will I make them worse or permanent? What chemicals do I use and how much? Will tea, coffee, red wine be removed?
3/ You then have drying times to consider. It takes 2 hours on average. You could be looking at hours or days. If this is the case you could end up with odour issues caused by mildew.
4/ Quality of workmanship. We are trained.
