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!

Tips For Getting New Carpet Installed

Tips For Getting New Carpet Installed

three carpets different coloursReally Cheap Carpet Cleaning Brisbane has been cleaning and revitalising carpets in the greater Brisbane area for a long time. Sometimes it’s carpet that has been around for years and is being maintained as much as possible. Other times, it’s a brand new carpet installation where the clients want it kept as new-looking as possible.

Getting new carpet installed is a big thing and a major investment in the value of your house. For those who are considering replacing old carpet or covering up tiles or wooden floorboards; here is a lightweight guide to point you in the right direction.

Earlier in the week, we did a blog post about the types of carpet available to choose from. This post will be following on and covering what to look for in carpet and things to consider when buying and getting carpet installed.

Carpet Specifications

When looking at different styles of carpet, a common theme will be a list of key specifications of that carpet. Here is what they mean.

Density – the thickness of each fibre in the carpet and how close together they are. The higher the density, the thicker and more durable the carpet.

Grading – carpets are ranked according to specifications by the Australian Carpet Classification Scheme. The higher the grading (up to 6 stars), the better quality. There are also different colours and grades depending on if the carpet is for residential use, or commercial use.

Price per metre – some carpets are priced by the square metre, while others are priced by a broadloom metre (1 metre x 3.6 metres) which is something to keep in mind with overall cost.

Underlay – is the padding that goes between the existing floor and the carpet. Sometimes as part of a deal, this is included in the final cost, other times it is an added extra.

Installation

It is very important to get at least 2, ideally 3 quotes for the cost of installation. Depending on the company, some might tend to over-estimate the amount of carpet required. There is also the chance of incorrect measurements that would be picked up with a different measurement and quote. While it is definitely better to have too much than not enough, you want wastage to be as minimal as possible. Make sure you also get an itemised list of costs for installation rather than just an overall price. You can then compared what each company will and will not do regarding installation.

Maintenance

Obviously, the better quality of the carpet, the more durable it is and the longer it will stay looking good. Having the carpet vacuumed and cleaned regularly will ensure it’s longevity, as well as mopping up spills and stains as soon as they occur.

We hope this has given you some insight into installation and what to look for when going down this path.

What To Do if Your Carpet Gets Flooded

What To Do if Your Carpet Gets Flooded

wet carpet vacuumIt has happened to all of us at some stage. The washing machine overflows, a tap gets left on or a storm hits. In a house full of carpet, you should know what to do if it gets saturated by water. When carpets get wet and are left to dry on their own, it can lead to mould, mildew and rotting of the underlay. Here is a quick checklist of steps to take to help prevent the need to replace carpets after an event.

 

  • Turn off the source of the water, if applicable.
  • Move all furniture off the carpet to prevent it getting damaged as well
  • Avoid walking on the carpet as much as possible
  • Get as much water out, using whatever you can to absorb it such as towels, a Wet & Dry vacuum
  • Open windows, turn on fans, anything you can to get air circulating and speed up the drying process
  • Lift the carpet up in place to help dry out the underlay as this is what will go mouldy first
  • Call in the team from Really Cheap Carpet Cleaning Brisbane to give your carpets a thorough clean and dry

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!
