Carpet cleaners in Skelmersdale
Carpet cleaning in Skelmersdale is our passion. We all love to have carpets and upholstery. Maintaining them is another thing. Manufacturers suggest an annual service to maintain furnishings’ longevity and look. This advice will vary from property to property.
You may have a busy household where more frequent servicing is required. Pets are another reason why a more regular visit.
Our team has many years of experience. Have trained with both the Iicrc and Ncca. Covering basic, intermediate, and advanced courses.
Like any trade, you can not just jump in and hope for the best.
Understanding what fibers you are dealing with, how to remove stains correctly, and dispel odours.
To assist our team to achieve the very best results we invest in both quality machinery and chemicals.
Before any work commences, we will conduct a survey. We must know what fibre we are dealing with. This determines which method we use.
For example, a polypropylene carpet can have any system used on it, however, a Wilton should only be a dry method. The reason for this is that a Wilton will shrink if moisture is used.
We check for stains, fitting, and joints.

Otherwise referred to as hot water extraction. This is the preferred system used. Using water pressure and heat to penetrate fibres. This will extract deeply ingrained dirt, most stains and smells. We control temperatures from cold to very hot vapour.
Besides this, we have quality solutions to assist us in tackling the toughest of jobs. We carry alkalines, acids, deodorisers, tea and coffee eliminator, rust remover, red wine reducer plus many more.
This is our most popular way to work.
Some fabrics like the clothes we wear have specific washing cycles. Although this method is dry it is better to claim it is minimal moisture. This is how it works and when it is used.
For instance a Wilton. The construction of the weave and weft if it receives too much moisture will shrink.
A light spray of our solution as in a mist. Followed by a dry compound. This looks like sand. This is liberally applied and agitated using a machine with counter-rotating brushes. Once the area is completed we allow this to dwell for twenty minutes. This absorbs dirt and odours. We then vacuum to remove all the dry compounds.
Results vary and the expectations are explained before work.
Used in larger areas such as schools, care homes, and hotels. Using a wool pad this rotates.
This only tackles the surface. As no heat is present no sanitisation will occur. When providing our quotes we explain the differences between the systems available. Costs will vary.

Most will dab up pee, or try to. If you are lucky you won’t have problems.
We split up the extraction into three areas.
1- Easy This is where extraction will remove any remnants or staining during the service of your furnishings.
2- Medium Use a Uv light to identify the multiple areas of contamination. Use specific chemicals to aid in the breakdown of stains and smells.
3- Upheaval Liquid sinks and when done in vast quantities the only option is to uplift the underlay and treat the subfloor. If a porous subfloor such as wood we need to treat this and allow it to dry. Sometimes this work may take two visits to fix successfully.
Smells are not pleasant. You may have tried sprays, opening windows, and using bicarbonate of soda. We carry solutions that eat odour at the molecular level.
We apply this chemical after we have completed our work.
When dealing with the likes of smoke, weed, or anything else that has penetrated the walls and ceiling as these are porous we would use our ozone machine.
Panic sets in when a spillage occurs. Our advice is to blot this up. Never rub. Dab with lukewarm water.
