Dry Carpet Cleaner In Streetly – What You Need To Know

dry carpet cleaner streetly

Are you looking for a dry carpet cleaner in Streetly? If so, our first question is why? This is because dry carpet cleaning is not always the best way to clean your carpet.  Dry carpet cleaning should only be used for lightly soiled carpets. We recommend it for maintenance cleans, not for removing heavy dirt and stains.

Some carpet and upholstery cleaners only use one cleaning method. So, you may have been told by a dry carpet cleaner in Streetly it’s what you need. At Knight & Doyle we always visit the home or business property to see the job. This is so we see exactly what the carpet is made of the stains and the level of dirt.  By doing this we can tell which cleaning method, or combination of cleaning methods will be suitable to get the best results. We would never recommend dry carpet cleaning for an annual deep clean.

Dry Carpet Cleaning & Pet Stains

If you are considering using a dry carpet cleaner in Streetly to treat pet stains or bodily fluid stains, think again. Dry carpet cleaning will not remove urine, blood or vomit. It will spread the stain over a wider area.  It will look and smell clean when the technician leaves, but the smell will return once the carpet is dry.

Cleaning Fine Fabrics

Cleaning Fine Fabric Rug

Cleaning Fine Fabrics is something other carpet and upholstery cleaners walk away from. Maybe the thought of cleaning £300/sq meter fabrics has them running for the hills! We have no problem cleaning expensive oriental rugs and other fine furnishings. We do this because we are properly trained and have the right equipment to carefully clean fine fabrics.

Knight & Doyle owner, Rich Doyle has recently completed a Fine Fabrics course.  On the course he enhanced his skills by firstly learning how to identify fine fabrics, and then how to clean them.  When we talk about cleaning fine fabrics we mean silk, velvet, sea grass and other natural and synthetic fibres. Rich has been cleaning fine fabrics for years, this course is an example of the on-going training we invest in.

In addition to training we invest in equipment. For example horsehair furniture brushes, velvet carding brushes, lint & pilling brushes and other specialist tools to carefully clean fine fabrics.

Cleaning Fine Fabric Pros & Cons

All fibres can be divided into two categories, that’s natural and synthetic.  Natural fibres then get divided into protein fibres and cellulosic fibres.  Each kind of fabric has pros and cons. For example, wool is a protein fibre because it comes from an animal. Wool is good because it absorbs dye really well, so you get some stunning carpet colours. But, this absorbency means it stains easily and is chemically sensitive.

Silk is lightweight and stretchable, which is good. However, if a filament gets pulled during cleaning this can be a problem.

Velvets are made with synthetic and natural fibres. They feel soft to the touch but water can cause staining and cleaning problems.
