Carpet Cleaning Cost – Cambridge Case study

Hello, all our fabulous readers, and welcome back; if you're new, welcome to our page and my recent case study… this is a lovely little carpet cleaning job we did, but the lady was having some really horrible issues with unwanted guests with wings. 

Before we go too far, each section is headed in bold so you can choose which parts are relevant to you. This case study will not only tell you what problems we came across, but it will also outline what causes moth damage, what we did to try and help the problem, and what the cost was for this job. I have also added our cleaning process so that you can see for yourself what we do. 

The problems we found with carpet cleaning Cambridge case study:

  1. When we arrived at our customer’s property, we found it was a first-floor flat, so the van-mounted machine would not be appropriate. 
  2. We then entered the flat, and when moving a few items of furniture, we realized there was the start of moth damage in a hidden area.

What caused the damage on the carpet in our Cambridge case study:

Did you know that adult moths aren’t the ones feasting on your investments? It’s the larvae that they lay in the fibres of your carpet that have a feast. And sadly, you won’t see the infestation until it’s too late, as its usually hidden in places like:

  • Under rugs.
  • Edges of the room.
  • Behind large furniture.

This larva lives for up to 2 years, eating away at your precious carpet or rugs.

How we dealt with the carpet cleaning problems in this Cambridge case study:

  1. Instead of using our van-mounted machine, we would use our top-of-the-range portable machine. There were also two technicians, so carrying all the stuff up the stairs was made more accessible.
  2.  After carrying out our carpet cleaning process, we added our moth treatment. The moth treatment is a solution that we spray after the cleaning process. I must stress that this doesn’t stop the moths. It’s just a way to deter them by making the fibres less tasty. 

If you have had a professional come in to clean and are still having the problem, there are some tips you can do to help. I have added a blog at the bottom. Tips to help try and prevent. It is also good to remember that sometimes the problem isn’t even in your house. If your adjoining neighbours have moth issues, the moths can travel into your property through lofts, and if you have floorboards, they will come up through floorboards.

Our cleaning process:

 We have a 10-step process, which includes the following:

  • Step 1 – High filtration vacuum.
  • Step 2 – We move the furniture.
  • Step 3 – Stain pre-treating.
  • Step 4 – Pre-spray (heavy-duty)
  • Step 5 – extraction with hot water.
  • Step 6 – Rince off the residue.
  • Step 7 – Protective Tabs
  • Step 8 – Grooming of the caret.
  • Step 9 – protector on the carpet. (protector is only if the customer would like clean and protect or just clean) 
  • Step 10 – dry, dry and more drying… this is essential to avoid the carpet getting dirty.

Below is a visual of our cleaning process:
