Blood & Pet Carpet Stain Removal & Cleaning

See a couple of our recent carpet cleaning jobs that feature tough to remove staining including carpet blood stains and carpet pet stains.

Here are a couple of our recent carpet cleaning jobs that feature tough to remove staining!

Household carpets can be subject to a number of different types of staining. These can range from chemical or artificial, to stains of a more natural origin.

For our latest blog post we thought we would look at 2 of our recent carpet cleaning jobs. Both of these cleaning jobs featured natural stain removals as part of the cleaning process.

For the first job, our customer has a new puppy that shall we say still needs a bit of work on its house training. The second job features some difficult carpet blood stains.

Pet Stains on Carpets

Here you can see a number of before and after shots of the carpets. Apologies for the quality of some of the images, luckily for us, and you, James our professional carpet cleaner is great at tackling carpet stains and cleaning, even if his repertoire of skills doesn’t always stretch fully to the camera!

Still, even in these images you can clearly see the extent of the staining and dirt within the carpets prior to our extensive cleaning process. Knowing that some of the staining was dog poo, enabled James to tackle the worst areas during the pre clean routine with the correct cleaning solutions to fully remove and clean the carpet!

Not only were the carpets left clean, but we were able to fully sanitise against bacteria and apply a pet friendly “carpet fresh” freshener scent to the carpets.

Blood Stains on Carpets

The second type of stain we have tackled recently was a blood stain – in fact we actually completed this job in the New Forest just this morning. These images are hot off the press as sent in by our qualified carpet technician.

Blood stains can lead to permanent carpet staining if they are not removed professionally. Many people will attempt to tackle them on their own, using ordinary household cleaning products. This can sometimes help to “work in the stain” – actually leading to permanent dis-colouring!

By using the correct techniques and child/pet friendly cleaning products, we were able to remove all of this particular blood stain. Once the stains were removed we used our truck mount carpet cleaning system to give the surrounding area a deep clean.

Lipstick on Upholstery – Child’s Play to Clean

It’s good to encourage child creativity, less great when it involves lipstick & your furniture! See the results of upholstery stain removal.

Upholstery Can Get Stained, As Well as Dirty!

Every parent knows that children can do the most unexpected and at times most unwanted things. We recently attended a job where our customers upholstery had become the victim of a lipstick stain, caused by the creative talent of their daughter.

Luckily our customer was wise enough to leave the stain removal to the professionals. Attempts to clean stains yourself can sometimes help ingrain the stain and actually make its removal a lot harder or even impossible.

Here is a picture of the upholstery that was used as the canvass for their child’s masterpiece.

You can see the way the artist creatively used the whole canvass and selected the correct shade of lipstick to ensure great visibility on the light coloured stool.

Thankfully felt tips and permanent markers weren’t at hand or the job of stain removal would have been made that little bit harder for us!

Being professional carpet and upholstery cleaners we were able to tackle this misfortune with the correct techniques and chemicals. Our customer was very surprised at how well we were able to remove the staining and the stool was noticeably cleaner in its entirety!

Utilising our truck mount cleaning equipment for exceptional cleaner quality, we were able to fully remove all signs of the lipstick staining.

Pre Christmas Carpet Clean in Shirley, Southampton

One of our last jobs in 2016 was this pre-christmas carpet cleaning job we undertook in Shirley, Southampton.

Carpet Cleaning in Shirley, Southampton for Christmas 2016

One of our last jobs in 2016 was this pre-christmas carpet cleaning job we undertook in Shirley, Southampton. We were super impressed with the amount of Christmas decorations and the festive atmosphere of this job, and it was good to work hard to reduce the mince pie impact on our waistline!

The lady and gentleman had their family visiting for Christmas Day and wanted to spruce up the large lounge carpet and downstairs carpets. They live in close proximity to Southampton Docks and the main Millbrook Dual Carriageway so the carpets have been exposed to quite a bit of dust and particulates. The house is also terraced and over 130 years old with large voids under wooden floorboards that allows drafts and dirt to gather, especially around the carpet edges.

The carpet was a high quality carpet, but a number of years old. It had suffered a stretch/kink due to a cable running under and you can see this in the before and after pictures. There were quite a number of spot stains that included everything from red wine to the grandchildren’s blackcurrant juice.

Initial Carpet Cleaning Stage – Vacuum and Pre-Clean Treatment

Our professional Hospital-Grade HEPA vacuuming really helps to remove all loose and surface dirt from deep within the pile. We then pre-treat the carpet to start the cleaning process and pay special attention to the obvious stains and areas of biggest concern. We work on agitating this pre-clean chemical through the pile and the Wow Magic is well underway…

Truck Mount Carpet Cleaning and Spot Stain Targeting

The next stage of our carpet cleaning process is to treat and tackle any individual stains. We have some videos of this work on our facebook page – www.facebook.com/wowcarpetcleaningUK – The general process for us when treating stains is to identify the likely cause and then to choose the correct specialist cleaning product to tackle the stain. We target individual stains with our specialist fluids and professional agitation to ensure the chemical reactions take place to extract the stain. As a final step we then use our truck-mount system to fully clean and remove the stain and any remaining residues.

We then also utilise our very powerful and top of the range, truck mount carpet cleaning system. This unique machine runs on RO (Reverse Osmosis) Water, this is a type of water that is very pure and is crucially a soft water source, as opposed to the hard tap water that many Hampshire residents get. By utilising the heat and power of our professional cleaning system, we are able to offer an unrivalled carpet cleaning service!

The Finished Pre Christmas Carpet Clean

The amount of traffic and staining that we were able to remove was really stunning and the pictures just don’t do the job justice! The customer was absolutely delighted and has pledged to have us return in the New Year to tackle her stairs and bedroom carpets too…

Study Room Walkway Carpet Clean

We’ve also got a few pictures from the clean we undertook in the study room walkway. An area of particular attention was the carpet edge where the floorboard drafts caused some pretty serious dirt accumulation and build up. As you can see from the pictures we were really able to thoroughly and professionally clean this high trafficked piece of carpeting!

Southsea Post Tenancy Carpet Clean & Stain Removal

On Monday 5th December 2016 we undertook a post tenancy carpet clean for a customer in Southsea…

Southsea Post Tenancy Carpet Clean & Stain Removal

On Monday 5th December 2016 we undertook a post tenancy carpet clean for a customer in Southsea. We professionally cleaned all carpeted areas which included a lounge area, a bedroom area, a small hall, a landing area and a traditional staircase.

There were a few stains and quite a lot of through traffic dirt on the stairs especially. Once we had finished all spot staining had been removed. Our customer remarked that the carpets were cleaning now than when they moved in, so no excuses for landlord deposit reductions!

As we do on all our carpet cleaning jobs, we finished the process by applying a deodorising and fragrance finish – Our customer commented on the fact they didn’t need to purchase air freshener now as the carpets smelled so good!

Initial Carpet Cleaning Stage – Vacuum and Pre-Clean Treatment

Our professional Hospital-Grade HEPA vacuuming really helps to remove all loose and surface dirt from deep within the pile. Once we have completed this step the carpet is ready for the start of the cleaning process. We begin by applying a pre-clean treatment to the carpet. On heavily stained or very dirty areas we also agitate this solution in to the carpet pile.

Spot Stain Targeting

The next step of the cleaning process is to treat and tackle any individual stain. We have some videos of this work on our facebook page – www.facebook.com/wowcarpetcleaningUK – For this particular job we had a number of unidentified red stains (possibly red wine/blackcurrant) and a couple of darker stains. The process for us when treating stains is to identify the likely cause and then to choose the correct specialist cleaning product to tackle the stain.

We target the stain with a specialist fluid & agitation and then use our truck-mount system to fully clean and remove the stain. As you can see in the video, the red staining in particular took a number of specialist cleaning attempts before we were able to fully remove the staining.

Truck-Mount Carpet Cleaning

Once all spot stains on the carpet have been treated (we can remove nearly all stains – the only ones we may struggle with are ones customers have tried to treat themselves with chemicals that aren’t suited to the stain type or carpet type, as this can lead to permanent staining of the carpet fibre), we then use our powerful truck-mount cleaning system to fully and deeply clean the carpet with a full wash and hot water extraction.

It is worth pointing out that our machine costs around £25,000 – it runs on specialist RO (reverse osmosis) water. This purifies the water and removes all the natural hardness of the local water supply. By using a purer water we are able to attract and extract more dirt, and we leave your carpet feeling softer than if cleaned with non treated, hardwater from your tap! Our clean is far superior to any DIY or home carpet cleaning and unlike a generic carpet cleaning solution, by pre-treating and targeting stains first, we have a much higher chance of providing you with the cleanest carpets!

Deodoriser & Freshener Spray plus a Final Carpet Pile Brush

Once the carpet is fully clean we will apply a specialist deodorising and freshening solution, before giving the carpet pile a final brushing. This helps to eliminate any unwanted smells, and to leave your carpets and rooms smelling fresh! We have a number of fragrances to choose from including a “fresh air” smell for those who only want a deodoriser and not a noticeable fragrance (a popular option with our commercial clients such as hospitals and nursing homes!).

It is worth mentioning that all our products are child and pet safe. You can also see that once we have completed our carpet cleaning our operators will ensure any outdoor shoes that could re-soil your carpet are fully protected!

Stain Removal at a Customer’s House in Ocean Village, Southampton

Another Happy Carpet Cleaning Customer

At the start of November we visited a customer in Ocean Village, Southampton to undertake carpet cleaning across their 4 storey town house. This job was actually a first for us as we attempted to tackle a stain we hadn’t previously encountered knowingly – Calpol, the yummiest kids medicine!

Ocean Village, Southampton Carpet Cleaning Job

The advantage of our professional truck mount carpet cleaning machine is that we are able to professionally tackle all jobs, even those involving multiple flights of stairs!

However, it is also important to consider your hose and to make sure your customer’s home is not damaged, especially when stretching so far. This is where professional carpet cleaners, such as ourselves, utilise safe corner protection for all doors and skirtings that may be at risk from damage…

The WOW Carpet Cleaning Experience

Depending on the stains we are attempting to remove one of the first jobs we undertake is a general hover to remove large debris. Once this is complete we can apply a general pre-clean solution to the carpets and after leaving this to react, we work over the carpet with an agitator. This helps to break down any dirt and also separate the carpet pile prior to the main deep clean. The main clean utilises our truck mount machine that runs on RO (Reverse Osmosis) Water. This process strips all the chemicals and trace elements found in normal tap water. It leaves you with a very clean water source. The purer the water the easier it is to breakdown and attract dirt.

After this has been done we can tackle any stubborn stains – depending on the staining we will have sometimes treated the spot stains prior to any pre-cleaning work. Utilising our unique and chemical free solutions we can tackle nearly all stains. The hardest stains we have to remove are those the customer has already attempted to remove. If you use the wrong product or scrub the stain in to the carpet pile it is sometimes impossible to then extract the stain or reverse any permanent discolouring. ALWAYS CONTACT THE PROFESSIONALS WHEN THE STAINING FIRST OCCURS!

The pictures below show this process for a small area of a child’s bedroom at our Ocean Village, Southampton carpet cleaning job. The staining to this one area of carpet included ink, coffee and calpol. As you can see we managed to leave the carpet spotless!

We also have some videos of our spot stain treatment from this job on our Facebook page, please visit www.facebook.com/pg/wowcarpetcleaningUK/videos/ to view these.

Removing Summer Stains from Your Carpets

Grass, Pollen, Dirt and other Garden Related Carpet Stains

Summer is a great time of year for enjoying your garden and the great outdoors. However, this period can also lead to the build up and creation of some stubborn summer stains in your carpets. One of the most popular summer stains we are asked to tackle is grass stains on carpets, especially around main routes directly to or from the garden such as the carpet area in front of patio doors.

These highly trafficked areas of carpet can collect a great deal of dirt and over time look very bad. By restoring the carpet to its “as new” clean condition you can almost feel like you have a new carpet!

Grass, especially freshly cut, can create a very unique dark green stain – you only have to look at the soles of your feet after walking barefoot in your garden to see what is collected and what is then being walked across your carpets. Add any children or pets in to this equation and you can quickly accumulate some pretty dirty spots and stains on your carpets!

Another stain that is particular hard to tackle, and can definitely be made worse with the wrong treatment, is pollen staining. This can not only come from the outdoors but as the cost of cut flowers from supermarkets decreases, more and more people are buying flowers that then drop pollen in your home.

Summer Stains Tackled and Professionally Cleaned & Removed

The good news is our professional carpet cleaners can tackle these summer stains and ensure your carpets look and smell fresh once again. Having the correct cleaning solutions for the particular type of staining is crucial in not only delivering super clean carpets, but in ensuring the stain isn’t worked further or permanently in to your carpet fibres.

We would always advise you to contact the specialists rather than DIY carpet stain removal – you may get lucky and apply the correct cleaning solution for your carpet and stain, then again you may spend time and money to make the staining worse – why take that risk?

A happy Southampton customer.

Very good results, very professional, courteous, would recommend to anyone.

Great feedback on a carpet clean we did in Portsmouth.

We were very please with the results, the carpets look and feel a lot better now. Sean and his team were very efficient and helpful. We had just had house decorated and they were happy to move furniture around for us. They were also flexible with dates as our decorator finished early and they were able to move date forward.

Our last comment here comes from a customer in Waterlooville.

Red Wine Carpet Stain Removal

Is your carpet stained with Red Wine?

Our Red Wine Carpet Stain Removal service may be the perfect way to remove that unwanted red wine stain! Red wine is notoriously difficult for an amateur to remove from carpets or upholstery. One of the biggest problems is when originally spilled, the wine has either been left to fully soak in to the carpet or worse still has been agitated in to the carpet. If you are reading this with a stain then this won’t help you now – but on the off chance you don’t have a stain, or want to know what to do in the future then the best thing is to immediately absorb as much liquid as possible.

When red wine is spilt using an absorbent cloth or kitchen towel to gently “blot” as much liquid as possible

Make sure you use an up and down blotting motion as opposed to swirling or attempting to wipe the stain up. The goal is to reduce the liquid being absorbed by the carpet or fabric and to prevent its spread as much as possible. A small amount of water can then be added to the stain and you can continue to blot. This will help to remove as much of the wine as possible. At this point do not attempt any further DIY cleaning. This could damage your carpet further, ingrain the stain or worse still bleach or permanently discolour your carpet.

Call in the professional Carpet & Upholstery Cleaners!

We can utilise our experience and our range of cleaning products to analise your red wine stain and decide on the best course of action to treat it. Check out our pictures from a red wine stain removal job we undertook.
