UK Carpet Cleaning - List of Services

carpet cleaning service

Carpet Cleaning

UK Carpet Cleaning will deep clean your carpets according to carpet manufacturers’ specifications. This specified cleaning is required to keep your warranties intact.

Richard uses an advanced cleaning tool called a rotary extractor instead of the common steam vacuum scrub wand. The rotary extractor produces superior results with a constant circular cleaning action that passes gently over each fiber of carpet from every angle, top to bottom, 936 times a minute. Compare this to the common scrub wand, which the operator pushes only forwards and backwards over carpet. The rotary extractor is constantly cleaning at 936 cleaning passes per minute, morning noon and night, as opposed to a physically exhausted operator using a scrub wand.

However — Is using top-of-the-line equipment a guarantee of a high quality cleaning process? No, in the same way as owning a top-of-the-line stove will not make you a gourmet chef. Everything has to be synergistic. You have to have the correct education, system, experience, and equipment to produce top of the line results. Richard takes over where other cleaners fail.

Your cleaner, Richard Midgley, has been cleaning carpets for over 18 years. He has achieved the highest cleaning certifications available - Master Textile Cleaner.

For best results, Richard has a water softener right in the van, so we only use soft water to clean your carpets. Typical hard water from the tap is not as efficient at cleaning as soft water.

For every professional job, UK Carpet Cleaning follows a complete 10-step professional cleaning process. You can see this process outlined at the bottom of this page. Please take a look!

pet odors and stains

Pet Stains and Odors

Pet accidents are a very common problem. I offer numerous treatments, and I can help you find the solution that works best for you.

Pet accidents can range from a one-time event to multiple deposits in the same area. The complicating issue with pet urine is that it is usually multi-layered. The urine can soak deep down into the carpet backing, padding, and it can even penetrate the sub floor.

Usually there are two issues that have to be addressed - color change and odor. Pet urine can add and remove color from the fiber, and over time, it can permanently discolor the fiber.

The second issue is the associated odor due to bacterial action.

If the contamination is limited to the face yarns, then a topical neutralizing treatment may be satisfactory. More often than not, the contamination has to be addressed through multiple layers utilizing specialized extraction equipment and treatments specifically designed to treat the contamination.

In the most severe cases, it may be necessary to take up the carpet, clean out the primary and secondary backing, seal the sub-floor, replace contaminated padding, and then re-install and clean the carpet. As a licensed flooring contractor, I am licensed by the state of California to perform this type of process.

In the event new carpet is the best cost-effective option, I can refer you to a reputable carpet wholesaler. Why pay retail prices?

I cannot 100% guarantee complete odor removal, even if the sub floors are sealed and new carpet is installed. Odors in general, including pet accidents, if left untreated, can be absorbed into surrounding porous materials — upholstery, dry wall, base boards, beds, and fabrics are all capable of absorbing odors.

Depending on your needs, I have multiple options available to treat pet accidents. Some of my clients accept that their pets will continue to have accidents and are happy with a frequent maintenance schedule. Others are not. It's good to consider all options!

area rugs cleaning service

Area Rugs Cleaning

A professional rug cleaning is necessary to thoroughly remove stains, dirt, odors and allergens from your rugs.

A pre-inspection will reveal if there are any permanent stains and allow the us to determine rug construction and materials. Then, we will perform a thorough vacuuming of the area rug to remove debris. Then, a professional pre-spray and spot treatment will be applied before we use the advanced rotary extractor to scrub every fiber of rug from all directions.

This method flushes the carpet with a cleaning agent that removes bonded dirt and grit. The multiple vacuum slots then removes the water immediately after spraying it. Then we perform a post-spot treatment to work out the trouble spots. Next, we groom and dry the rugs to complete the process and leave your rugs beautifully clean!

A cleaning that will restore rugs to their former softness and vibrance is not a do-it-yourself job, but a job for a professional. Call Richard at UK Cleaning today to get the best, most effective, and safest rug cleaning - guaranteed.
