Can We Clean It? Yes We Can!

Here are some great before and after photos of a carpet we cleaned in Raynes Park.

This was booked as a repeat client, so we would normally know exactly what to expect from the job.

However, on viewing the carpet it looked like something had gone drastically wrong, and certainty not a condition we were expecting!

I really wasn’t sure whether it was even worth cleaning, of which I advised the client, however, they were determined that at least we try our best.

Ok, we are professional carpet cleaners, and certainly have the knowledge and equipment to at least make a difference, so why not give it a good go. This is what we call in the industry as a salvage clean!

We started off by giving the carpet a really good thorough power vacuum with a Sebo 36 vacuum cleaner to remove loose and dry soil. This is an important step in any carpet cleaning process as it can remove around 70-80% of dry soil in the carpet. Does you carpet cleaner do this?

We then used one of our more powerful pre-treatments products at quite a high Ph to thoroughly pre-treat all the stains and heavy traffic areas.

This was then followed-up by agitating the carpet with a counter-rotating power brush which helps to further breakdown and ‘soften’ the stains and soils and suspending them for easier extraction.

Then it is time for the real power… a 50 horse power Blueline, truck mounted machine, using a low Ph rinsing solution (to naturalise the high Ph pre-treatment), VERY hot water and an unbelievable suction to extract all the dirt, stains and soil we have just ‘broken down’.

Now, when you go over the carpet with the cleaning wand for the final process, it looks amazing… BUT, you have to remember, it’s not the final machine, rinse and suction that has done the work, it is the pre-treatments and preparation that has REALLY made the carpet come up this well.

This is why you have to be careful of ‘cheap’ companies that only use a chemical in the machine to do the job. This isn’t really getting the carpet clean, and in a lot of cases is causing damage to your carpet.

Ok, rant over…

So, if you are in the South London area and have a carpet cleaning challenge for us, find out if ‘Can We Clean It’ and give us a call on 020 8687 1711 and we’ll come and give you a free consultation with honest, helpful advice and a full written quotation.

Carpet Cleaning in Croydon

If you’re in Croydon or the surrounding areas, and looking for professional carpet cleaning in
Croydon then congratulations you have just found the very best carpet cleaners in Croydon you can find.

Now this is quite a claim! And we would say this, wouldn’t we..? However, it’s not just about what’s said on a website that counts, anyone can say anything.

It’s all about the offering, service and integrity followed up by the action that really counts.

So, how can we be so confident you will get the very best carpet cleaning in Croydon? We’ll it’s not easy, and not everyone can do it.

In fact it’s MUCH easier to offer an ‘average’ carpet cleaning service, cut a few corners and offer very cheap prices. BUT, this is NOT what we do.

So if you are looking for the ‘cheapest’ carpet cleaning in Croydon, then we are not the right company for you. I would advise you to look elsewhere.

However, if you are looking for a company that will treat you with respect, is reliable, will give you a free consultation, give you free advice on the very best carpet cleaning system for your type of carpet, its condition and requirements, will give you a full written quotation back-up up with a 100% money back guarantee.

So, if for ANY reason you need us back, like if somebody drops or spills something on the clean carpet, then give us a call and we’ll be straight back.

But there’s more… You will also have the option to have the carpet properly protected. I say this because there are so many companies out there applying stain protection incorrectly, it doesn’t work!  Obviously this is a waste of money.

However, if the right product is applied correctly, it does work, and very well. We are so confident in the stain protection products AND the way it’s applied, you will get a free 12 month stain call-out guarantee. So if you get any stains you cannot remove, just give us a call and we’ll be right there for you free of charge.
