Recent Floor Restoration Work In Cardiff & Bridgend

Recent Floor Restoration Work In Cardiff & Bridgend

Although we first made our name as a carpet and upholstery cleaning company, we’re finding an increasing amount of our work is coming in the hard floor cleaning sector.

Hard tile, wood and stone flooring is a practical and attractive addition to any home, but it often comes with a hefty price tag.

And that’s where knowing a good floor cleaning and restoration company can come in handy…

Restoring a hard floor, rather than replacing it, will save you a small fortune and can transform the appearance of a room or hallway.

And one of the most popular floor types we come across is travertine.

Travertine is hard wearing, beautiful (when clean!) and can last a lifetime. But it does need regular maintenance and care (avoid using any harsh detergents or chemicals when mopping!)

Here’s some recent travertine jobs we’ve been working on in the Cardiff and Bridgend areas in the last month or two:

 

The above “before” photo shows the grime that built up on the tile and in the grouting over the period of a couple of years.

Although these travertine tiles are essentially “clean” on the surface, you can clearly see the finished result after a deep professional clean.

Indeed, it’s easy to forget just how good they look when they are first fitted!

The image below shows another two travertine kitchen floors “before” and “after” cleaning. Flooring of this quality doesn’t come cheap, and so it makes sense to restore and then maintain it carefully.

Again, these photos illustrate how a room can be brought back to life simply by restoring a tired floor.

The most important thing is that once your floor is cleaned and sealed, you maintain it by regular cleaning with suitable professional products.

If you need advice with this, please don’t hesitate to get in touch.

Recent Carpet Cleaning And Coffee Stain Removal In Bridgend

Hmmm, coffee…

There’s nothing like a freshly brewed french press first thing in the morning to get your day kicked off with a hit of caffeine!

Coffee is one of the most common spillages that we come across in our work. And sometimes, if the stain has been treated incorrectly, it may appear impossible to remove.

But as with most stains, the key is to react quickly as once the coffee has dried, it will prove much more difficult for you to completely remove.

Here’s a photo of a recent large coffee stain removal we completed for one of our carpet cleaning customers in Bridgend:

Carpet Cleaning Stain Removal In Bridgend

If you do want to attempt removing the stain yourself, here’s how to tackle it:

First, dab the stain with an absorbent towel, being careful not to spread the stain or push it deep into the fibers.

Then, using a mix of 50/50 water and white wine vinegar, pour very small amounts of the solution onto the stain (or use a spray bottle) and once again dab carefully to extract the liquid and coffee.

Repeat this process several times until the stain has been removed.

*Be careful not to over-wet your carpet, always making sure the towel absorbs most of the moisture each time*.

Then, place a clean towel over the stain – weigh it down with a heavy book or other such weight and remove after a few hours. Any remnants of the stain should have transferred from the pile to the towel.

In some cases, you may find it impossible to remove coffee stains. DO NOT attempt to use branded stain removers from your local store – they can potentially dye the stain and permanently ‘set’ it.

If in doubt, please don’t hesitate to give us a call. We’re more than happy to offer free advice over the phone.
