Nylon – The Fibre With Many Uses

Nylon – The Fibre With Many Uses

carpets Nylon is a fantastic fibre that is commonly used in many forms of carpet. The advantages of nylon include being extremely durable to wear and tear and having a long life span compared to other types of carpet fibres. It is also easy to clean and is stain and dirt-resistant. Perfect for a floor-covering that is required to look nice and add to the decor of your home!

Nylon is such a versatile fibre that it also has many uses that you may not have thought of! Nylon was developed during WWII as a cheaper substitute  for silk. It was used for parachutes, and women’s hosiery. It was also used for women’s clothing, and nightwear into the 1960’s when other types of synthetics were developed.  While it is rarely used in clothing today, it’s main use is in carpeting.

Other items that nylon is used in include;

  • Tooth brush bristles
  • Dental floss
  • Some shoe laces
  • Fishing nets
  • Socks
  • Women’s stockings
  • Air conditioning filters used at home/office/cars etc.
  • Camping tents

5 Really Bad Stains On Your Carpet….

Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning Brisbane Can Get Rid of Them All!

coffee splashing out of cupThere are many things that can make marks and leave residue on your carpets. Some are worse than others though. Not to worry, Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning Brisbane can get rid of all of them! When these stains happen, the best thing you can do is try remove as much of them ASAP while they are fresh. Sometimes though, the best people to contact is us!

The 5 worst things that will stain your carpet

Vomit, Urine and Excrement is probably the most offensive (to your nose) thing that will stain your carpets. Vomit, urine and faeces from a human or animal not only stain and soak in to the carpet, but the odour is awful. It is vital to try and clean up as much of this as you can at the time it happens. If the urine is from an animal, it is even more important, as the animal will keep returning to that spot if not removed thoroughly. This is the one type of stain that will most likely require a deep clean to remove all traces.

Blood can be tricky as it absorbs into the carpet quickly and leaves a dark-coloured stain. This is especially noticeable on pale carpet. After you have taken care of where the blood originally came from, you should get to this one quickly while it is still fresh. a mix of detergent and water and blotting should get rid of the worst of it.

Coffee can leave a permanent dark/yellowish stain and because it is liquid, can spread quite far. Mop up as much as possible. You can use vinegar and water to dilute it and help lift the stain.

Cordial/Wine/Juice won’t only stain your carpet and discolour it, but will leave a sticky residue. If you can get to it quick, water and blotting up the liquid should get rid of the worst of it, but this is another one that could need our particular stain-removing formula.

Now we’ve covered the worst things you can spill on your carpet. If you ever feel that it’s a job best left to the professionals, don’t hesistate to give the Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning Brisbane team a call!

Some Facts and Information on Carpet Cleaning

Carpet Cleaning Methods

There are 3 main ways that a carpet can be cleaned. The best method depends on the age of the carpet, what it is made of and how heavily stained it is.

Steam cleaning (also known as hot water extraction cleaning) is the most common form of carpet cleaning. A cleaning solution is applied to the carpet, which is then washed and rinsed with a high pressure water jet from the machine. The dirty water is sucked up from the carpet into a reservoir and the carpet is then left to dry for a period of time.

Dry Cleaning (also known as compound cleaning) is the next most common form of carpet cleaning advertised. A compound (chemical powder) is applied to the carpet using a rotating brush moved over the carpet. This compound absorbs the dirt and stains (not unlike a sponge) and is then extracted at the end.

Encapsulation is the third most common way of cleaning carpets. Foam is applied to the carpet and similar to the way a dry cleaning compound works. The foam absorbs the surface dirt and dries to a powder, which is then vacuumed up. This method is usually reserved for smaller areas such a rugs or spot cleaning and is the most common DIY carpet cleaning in homes.

 

Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning Brisbane says: There are quite a few different ways of cleaning your carpet. While some companies will only use one particular way, our company will ask questions about your carpet and choose the solution that will give you the best result possible.

 

Products involved in cleaning carpets

What products are used to clean your carpets will depend on the fibre your carpet is made of. If your carpets are steam-cleaned, synthetic or man-made fibre carpets will use an alkaline ammonia-based product. A wool carpet will require an acidic vinegar-based product. Dry cleaning uses chemical-based detergents to dissolve and absorb dirt and allow it to be vacuumed up after a short period of time.

Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning Brisbane says: it is very important to us that the products we use are effective at cleaning your carpets, but also not harmful to your family and pets. We also guarantee that there will be no residues left behind, no matter what type of cleaning we do.

 

Carpet cleaning chemical safety

It is very important to know what types of chemicals are being used to clean your carpet. Especially if you have children and pets in the house. Some chemicals contain solvents that give off strong odours, as well as acids, pesticides and artificial perfumes that can potentially cause harm. If in doubt, ask your cleaner what they are using and if they guarantee it is safe.

Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning Brisbane says: All the products we used are guaranteed to not be harmful to you, your family or your pets. Health and safety is extremely important to us.

Strategies to avoid stains on your carpet

  • Get a stain resistant protectant applied to your carpet
  • Vacuum or blog out spills or mess as soon as they happen
  • Encourage a no-shoes-inside policy
  • Have doormats for people to wipe their feet on as they come inside
  • Get professional cleaning done every 6-12 months

Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning Brisbane says: All of these tips are fantastic for helping prevent ear and hard-to-remove stains from your carpet. Of course, prevention is ideal, but things inevitably happen and that why we are here to help!

Simple ways to remove common stains

Cordial, soft drink, coffee: Blot (dab) the liquid up from the carpet. DO NOT rub or scrub the stain. Mix a solution of ¼ cup vinegar, 1 squirt of dishwashing liquid and fill with water. Spray, leave for 10 minutes and blot up with a dry cloth. Always use cold water, as hot water can set the stain.

Pet Urine, blood: Soak up as much moisture as possible. Mix a spoon of enzyme-based laundry liquid with cold water, and spray stain. The enzymes will break down the odour as well as the stain, and leave no scent for your pet to return to that spot. Blot with a dry cloth. You may need to do this more than once.

 

Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning Brisbane says: These are some really good tips for getting stains out as soon as they happen. If they are discovered after they’ve dried and won’t come out, give our carpet cleaning Brisbane team a call. We will do everything we can to fix it!

Tips for Preparing Your Carpet to Be Cleaned

Tips for Preparing Your Carpet to Be Cleaned

vacuum cleanerWhatever the reason for getting your carpet cleaned, there are a few things that you can do to assist us in getting in and doing the most thorough job possible for you. Some things can’t be avoided, but if even one of these things can be done, it will make the process faster for everybody.

 

 

  • Vacuum the areas to be cleaned. This is a big timesaver. It also minimises the chance of us picking something up in our vacuum that you would notice as valuable
  • Move furniture around to allow as much access as possible. While some furniture can’t be moved, anything small and light like tables, lamps, chairs that are able to be moved makes cleaning much easier
  • Remove breakable items, nick-racks from tables, shelves etc. Accidents can happen.
  • Confine indoor pets from the areas to be cleaned. This will stop them from being scared by the noise of the cleaner as well as stopping them from walking on damp carpet.
  • Tie up floor length curtains and blinds . This will prevent them getting wet or damaged from the carpet cleaner
  • Make space for the cleaner to enter with the necessary equipment. If there is a space for the cleaner’s vehicle to be parked as close as possible, this will help greatly.

The team at Carpet Cleaning Brisbane thank you in advance if any of these things can be done. We look forward to seeing you soon!

Summer is coming..

With summer round the corner we highly recommend you get your home as clean as possible before the heat hits!
The heat attracts a lot of insects including ants, so take the time to give everything a good wipe down.
