Our homes act as harbingers of comfort, and we try our best to keep it in optimal condition. But often, our carpets face the brunt of certain uncontrollable actions. Sometimes someone accidently spills over some wine, and at other times kids walk in with muddy shoes. Now, under such circumstances, we are left with a carpet stain and requires immediate cleaning. Even if you try your best to keep your carpet spruced up, something will always spring up on you. Thus, it is important to be adept in the crucial art that is carpet stain removal.
Soiling happens when a residue of the carpet cleaner, used to remove the stain, is left on the carpet fibres. The residue becomes sticky on not being completely rinsed and blotted, thus attracting dirt and soil.
Wicking happens when the substance that was spilled soaks through the carpet into its backing and sometimes even the underpad. In this case, the substance stuck in the backing and/or underpad is reabsorbed by the carpet and makes it way to the carpet fibres. Wicking usually happens when the carpet has not completely been dried out after steam cleaning.
Now that you know what can affect your carpets, how can you prevent it from happening?
Treat spills immediately to prevent it from soaking deep into the carpet, thereby preventing the reappearance of stains. After this, lay down a stack of papers or a clean towel to draw up the left-over moisture in the carpet. Else, you can contact the best Carpet Steam Cleaning team in Perth to remove the stains and clean your carpets professionally.

Your home and office are your haven; the place where you spend most of your time.
You deserve having a safe and clean environment when it comes to your home and offices, and that’s where we come in. The carpets in your home and offices offer an aesthetic feel to the space and are healthier if maintained properly; it is also an investment. And we are here to take care of your investment.
There are two prominent ways to clean your carpet – carpet steam cleaning and carpet dry cleaning. While both processes need a pre-vacuum to remove any soil or debris stuck on the carpet fibres, the main difference between carpet steam cleaning and dry cleaning is the step that proceeds vacuuming.
In the case of carpet steam cleaning, our cleaners will bring in an industry-standard water extraction machine filled with hot water mixed with a minute percentage of detergent. The carpet is exposed to high-pressure water injection, after which the water along with the dirt, and other germs and bacteria is then extracted, thereby leaving your carpet looking new and fresh, clean, chemical-free, non-allergy inducive and affordable!
On the other hand, the dry-cleaning method requires pre-treatment of the carpet with the aid of chemical solvents to dissolve the residue in the carpet. After this, cotton absorbent pads, which can also act as carriers of dirt, are given a hot-water conditioning rise. These chemically-conditioned cotton pads are then attached to a rotary machine, which spins the cotton pads on a high speed leading to removal of dirt from the carpet onto the pads.
Carpet steam cleaning is ideal for people who love natural compared to toxic chemicals, and who have children and pets. Check out the benefits of carpet steam cleaning below:
All these factors make carpet steam cleaning a better process compared to dry cleaning. Now that we have zeroed in on the better process among the two processes, what are you waiting for? Call us today to get a quote! And we will come, clean your haven in a jiffy!
It’s your favourite upholstered chair but it’s also loved by the cat, your regularly visiting nephew and, on the odd occasion, someone’s gym bag!
While you don’t mind sharing the love, you don’t want to share the dirt and stains that come with it. So what’s better – sending it to the loving arms of an upholstery cleaner in Perth, or taking on the challenges of DIY upholstery cleaning? Take a seat, and let’s explore.
Upholstery is a combination of soft padding and a textile covering that’s applied as the outer layer of a piece of furniture. It can range from leather to textured material to silk. It’s really only limited by the designers imaginings.
The necessity for upholstery cleaning every 18 months or so is because your furniture can’t naturally repel dirt. Hair, food, accidental spills – they’re all unavoidable unless you cover it in plastic (and those days are, happily, long gone!) Regular upholstery cleaning will see you get the maximum amount of years out of your investment. Your home will remain a much healthy environment too with less bacteria harboured in the soft furnishings you sit and lie on.
There are many challenges with doing your own upholstery cleaning and that’s after you understand what you’re dealing with.
First, look for the cleaning instructions on the manufacturer’s label. It will be somewhere on the furniture piece. If it isn’t, you can call an upholstery cleaner in Perth for advice. Labels range from ‘solvent only’ cleaning to ‘water-based’ cleaning, to a possible combination of both, to avoiding all of these. With the right cleaner in hand, apply it to a small spot of fabric or leather that’s out of view, just to test how it responds to your cleaner. If all is good, you’re on your way.
Stains are a whole new level of cleaning management. It’s certainly not one cleaner fits all! Try not to rub the stain as you’ll probably spread it further and deeper into the fabric. Removal of some stains can be achieved through a stain remover but be careful and be sure: there’s no practice run here!
The final hurdle of upholstery cleaning is something we all have to get over – or rather, into. It’s getting in amongst the dips, pleats, crevasses and hem lines without damaging the chair. It’s challenging and is most successful with the right tools. It’s not really cost effective for you to purchase these tools yourself, but if you’re keen, find out where upholstery cleaners in Perth buy their equipment.
Better still, if the DIY aspect of upholstery cleaning has you crawling under the cushions, why not bring in the experts – Perth Carpet Cleaning. Our knowledge of what cleaner to use on which fabric puts us way ahead of the pack. Combine this with the ability to remove stains you simply can’t at home (without the sweat and swearing!) and we simply have to be your first stop for expert upholstery cleaning.
