Flea and Mite Removal
Dust Mite Treatment
Dust Mites are tiny microscopic organisms that live in your home, within the carpets. Now, this is a problem regardless, but the main issue with dust mites is the fact that they leave their waste products embedded within the carpets, upholstery, curtains, sofas and any other fabric-like material. They will thrive on shed skin from humans and enjoy warm conditions, which means they enjoy living in our homes.
The waste products they produce can cause allergic reactions and even asthma, so If you regularly find yourself sneezing, coughing or maybe you have a runny nose often, you could have a dust mite infestation.
Fortunately Carpet Local is trained in the arts of dust mite treatment; we have our powerful high tech, hot water extraction, carpet cleaning unit, also know as a “steam cleaner”, which is able to kill, and extract dust mites effectively from your carpets.
If you’re a pet owner then you are fully aware of the possibility of your lovely dog or cat bringing fleas into your home. Once established, fleas are extremely difficult to remove due to their life cycle. They breed extremely fast and grow rapidly once hatched.
Most fleas live for a month but some can live as long as several months. During their life span they will go from being an egg, to a larva, a pupa and eventually a fully formed flea. At this point, the females will produce up to 25 eggs per day!
To put this in perspective, 25 adult fleas, can reproduce up to a quarter of a million in a very short space of time! Unfortunately fleas do carry with them bacteria, meaning they can pass on to the home owners diseases such as tapeworms, typhus and more.
Here at Carpet Local we have the solution to these critters in the form of our powerful pre-spray. This spray is formulated by our vigorous chemicals, which help to break down and destroy the eggs. As the eggs are not sticky, they eventually fall on to the ground meaning removing them requires our pre-spray. The now destroyed eggs will be removed when you vacuum the carpet over the next few weeks.
A common question we hear is, “What is Pre-Cleaning”, and “why do I need it, I thought a standard clean was adequate”. Well the truth is, a standard clean is the perfect option for any household that wants the aesthetics of a clean carpet but doesn’t want to clean away the parts they can’t see. The standard clean is suitable for somebody who regularly hoovers and cleans their carpet and requires a thorough clean just to top up the condition.
So how do you know if you require a Pre-Cleaning Treatment and if it will be suitable for you?
Well if you have children, you know they run about, play outside and then bring in mud, drop breadcrumbs or food and of course they tend to spill stuff like milk or soft drinks.
If you have pets, you know how easily they can cause stains on your carpets. Also, coat shedding is another issue, which is a problem as their coat can become greasy and oily. The residue from the fur is invisible, but not odourless. This odour is hard to get rid of and the oily residue turns the carpet fibres into sticky rods which cling onto the dirt more than normal, meaning your standard hoover or carpet clean job will not be able to remove the dirt.
To tackle both of these cases, we developed the “Pre-Cleaning Treatment”, which involves using extremely powerful chemicals applied to the carpet via our high tech carpet cleaning machinery. Stored within our chemicals is a fluid that effectively kills of bacteria including Bird Flu, Rubella and even E. Coli. The end result is that your carpet is cleaned in depth, not just what’s visible on the surface.
*Scotch Guard Protection Treatment
What Is Carpet Protection (Scotch Guard) and why do I need it?
We all know the hassle involved when it comes to keeping carpets clean. Maintaining the cleanliness is a hard task in itself, so why not make the day to day task easier by using Scotch Guard? We use a *Scotch Guard equivalent, our formulated spray which is applied to your newly cleaned carpet.
If you live in a home with children, pets or you have a large number of occupants living in your home then Scotch Guard treatment is highly recommended. Once enforced on to the carpet, it seals the fibres meaning that dirt is not able to attach itself to the carpet. This, in turn, means the daily maintenance and protecting against stains and dirt is simpler and will only require you to wipe the carpet with a damp cloth to remove any marks.
Our professorial carpet cleaning applicants will be able to implement the guarding process onto your carpets upon request prior to us beginning the main carpet cleaning process.
Call us now on 01202 705040 and speak to our friendly cleaning technicians to see how we can assist you and your carpet!
* Scotch Guard is a brand name for just one variant of carpet protection treatment, our treatment is just as effective with a different name!
