Upholstery and Carpet Cleaning in Myanmar
In this article we’ll discuss the basics of upholstery and carpet cleaning. Have you decided to renovate your office or home with carpet tiles? Do you want to purchase lovely upholstery consisting of cushion sofas and chairs?
It’s important to know how to maintain them. Let’s take a look at upholstery and carpet cleaning to help you understand that you’ve made the right decision!
Woven materials are excellent sound absorbers. Often whether it is the office space, at home or a common area in a luxurious 5 Star Hotel, people and machines can produce absurd levels of noise that can be displeasing and to some extent contribute towards noise pollution. Hard surfaces such as walls and marble flooring are able to produce echoes which can further amplify the noise level. As a result carpets are an excellent floor type to use in such scenarios.
With the right maintenance practices in place, your carpets and upholstery can last you anywhere between 5 to 25 years and by looking near pristine too!
As carpets are made of woven materials, this means that more force is absorbed by the material thereby stepping on them results in less force coming back up your legs allowing for more walking comfort.
With most carpet types, in the event of any cataclysmic damage, you can easily replace a portion of the carpet (tiles, rugs, rolls) at an inexpensive cost. Moreover the timeline to implement can be done within a few hours.
Acceptable Work Environment
Carpets and upholstery are very pleasing to the eye and can not only promote a more visually aesthetic environment but are also soft to the touch resulting in greater physical comfort!
Any given material in the built environment has its drawbacks and carpets and upholstery are no exception to the case:
Coffee spills, coke spills or any other organic or inorganic spill will result in stains to the carpet. Unlike hard floor surfaces like granite or wood that can easily wipe spills, carpets unfortunately absorb these liquids and if not dealt with swiftly, will result in stains that are unsightly.
Using the right chemicals
Woven materials can come in organic and inorganic materials. The chosen properties will make them more durable or pleasant to the touch. Similarly, these properties will mean there are fairly stringent restrictions on what chemicals can or can’t be used. Certain fabrics are more sensitive to high alkaline chemicals and can result in damages.
Using the right methods
Using the right methods for their intended purpose are equally as important as the chemicals used. Carpets and upholstery are ultimately woven fabrics that can’t take heavy stresses meaning that using the wrong method and machine can result in your carpets literally being ripped out of the floor!
Carpets and upholstery that get wet and aren’t properly dried can end up developing mould and mildew which in turn can create unpleasant odours. Moreover, this can also be a result of using the incorrect methods of carpet cleaning.
Take a deep breath, these negative attributes can be easily managed with the proper maintenance!
We’ll now take you through some of the processes that are mandatory to elongate the lifespan of your carpets and upholstery!
How to go about upholstery and carpet cleaning?
Upholstery and carpet cleaning are normally bundled together in the same school of processes. As there are a variety of options available, we will focus on the 3 main maintenance requirements.
In the absence of any liquids, vacuuming will be sufficient to help collect any soiling, dust or any other loose particles.
Liquid based cleaning such as carpet shampooing is done to help scrub the top layer of carpets and to not only help deodorise but also to remove any excess soiling. This normally will help bring the carpet back to an appearance that resembles its original unused state.
The moment any spill hits a carpet or any upholstery, the necessary spot removal chemicals need to be administered. If it is dealt with immediately up to 95% of the liquid can be removed and prevent any visible stains from forming.
Is deep carpet cleaning necessary?
Absolutely. Where maintenance processes allow us to get most of the soil and particles out of the top layers of carpentry and upholstery, deep carpet cleaning allows us to fully penetrate the material and take out all foreign particles in the carpets.
As it is an intensive process, it is only recommended for deep carpet cleaning either on a quarterly or bi-annual basis.
Carpets and upholstery are excellent additions to any facility. Certain precautions need to be taken in order to make sure their life expectancy is prolonged as much as possible and maintaining an appearance that is fresh. But using the wrong methods and chemicals can result in disastrous outcomes.
