The quickest and easiest way of keeping your home or business spick and span is by hiring carpet cleaners in Liverpool – but if you’re determined to go about it yourself, here are a few hints and tips to help you get it right.
You should check whether your carpet is colourfast before you clean, as if it’s not it could fade, bleed or change somewhat when removing stains. If it’s not colourfast, you can still clean it but you will need to be extra careful. When installing your carpet in the first place, keep a bit back so you can test it easily without risking the health of your entire flooring.
If you’ve got a little spill, powder (whether it’s an official carpet cleaner or something like baking soda) can help you soak it up and bring your carpet back to life. Just sprinkle it liberally over the stain, leave on for at least 30 minutes, then vacuum it up when you’re done.
Use carpet shampoo
Another option is carpet shampoo – but make sure you follow the manufacturer’s instructions on the packet as there are many different products of this kind out there. If stubborn stains don’t come out, use a hard-bristled brush to scrub them gently.
This might sound like a strange tip to some but if you’ve somehow managed to get something sticky in your carpet like chewing gum, you can harden it up with an ice cube before trying to get it off.
By the same token, if candle wax has dripped on your carpet you can get it off by putting a tea towel down and then ironing over the top of it to warm it up. Scrape it off, then put a paper towel down and iron over that as well. The wax should bind to the paper and come straight off.
It’s always tempting to save money with a DIY approach to the upkeep of your home, but when it comes to carpet cleaning, that isn’t the best approach.
Regular vacuum cleaning can only do so much when it comes to maintaining your carpets. To really protect your investment, manufacturers recommend that you have them professionally cleaned at least once a year, and more often in areas of high foot traffic or if you have pets. Attempting to clean your carpets yourself is likely to be a waste of time and could ultimately cost you more if you end up damaging them. Continue reading

There’s all sorts of useful tips and tricks you can employ to make the best of a spring cleaning session, and you don’t need to buy expensive cleaning products to put them into action. You can start by:
- Cleaning each room from the top down, starting upstairs. Make sure you dust and sweep surfaces, then you can hoover all the carpets and surfaces at the end as the final step.
- Increase your efficiency even more by turning to the right when you walk in a room and follow the walls around to make sure you don’t miss a spot.
- Use a clean, damp microfibre cloth for dusting. Hold the cloth up with one corner and, using a spray bottle, mist it with clean water. This should give you just enough moisture to pick up any dust without the streaky marks or unpleasant smells of polish. Continue reading
Studies have shown that employees work more efficiently if they appreciate the environment in which they work.
Unfortunately this time of year can bring with it a lot of irritation for those of us who suffer from allergies like hayfever. As an employer it might not seem like there’s anything you can do to help alleviate these symptoms in the people who work for you, but in reality, maintaining a thoroughly clean office will go a long way to keeping your workforce comfortable.
There are many different things that can negatively impact the hard floors in your business, from wear and tear caused by foot traffic to radiators which can gradually warp certain types of flooring.
From hardwood flooring to marble, the floors in your business are a big investment, so it’s important they are properly looked after. A floor maintenance plan from MetroClean will help you to avoid costly replacements, saving you money in the long run.
Most of us look forward to summer, but for allergy sufferers this time of year can often be very uncomfortable. There are ways to reduce the impact of allergens in the home, however, so read on for some useful tips and tricks!
The American Association of Asthma and Immunology defines the word allergy as: “a chronic condition involving an abnormal reaction to an ordinarily harmless substance called an allergen.” Those of us who suffer from allergies produce an immune response to what our bodies see as foreign invaders- these irritants can be anything from mould and dust mites in the home to pollen brought in from outside, the latter becoming a particular problem for hay fever sufferers during the summer months.

Cleaning with steam is a fantastic, natural cleaning process we need to use more in our homes.
The steam generated by our state-of-the-art steam wet vacuum cleaning equipment, which sits outside in our van whilst we clean, works in many different ways and we would like to explain how it is an invaluable tool in our arsenal for deep, hygienic and sanitising cleaning in your home or work place, for carpets, upholstery, rugs, curtains and mattresses.
Every job is different, but where appropriate we utilise the Hot Water Extraction (HWE) method to get an unparalleled deep clean in many carpet, upholstery and hard floor cleaning jobs.
To use carpet cleaning as an example, the Hot Water Extraction method has many benefits. Firstly, when you get the carpets in your home or business cleaned you want the method used to be safe and environmentally friendly. By using HWE we avoid exposing you to the chemicals that other carpet cleaning techniques expose you to. The truck-mounted system cleans deep into the pile, completely rinsing out the cleaning solution used to remove unwanted dust, debris and bacteria from your carpets. The ‘Hot’ in Hot Water Extraction is important because this heat helps to aid the efficiency of the clean along with the high amount of pressure used by the system to clean deep into the fibres and kill bacteria.
Here at Metroclean we have always been committed to providing our customers with an outstanding level of service at affordable prices for all our clients.

We recently completed a major commercial carpet cleaining project in Liverpool for a large hotel chain. The work involved an extensive health and safety audit of the work, along with several weeks of negotiations and preparations to prepare for the work to commence.
Not only were we limited by restricted access to the premises, the work also had to be completed out of hours and rapidly completed and dry in time for the next day when the area was back in use by the guests of the hotel and bar / restaurant. As experienced professionals we regularly complete complex and rapid tunaround prjects such as this, so it was no challenge to our team of skilled cleaning technicians.
- We offer a very flexible service cleaning in unsocialble hours and with the utmost professionalism to guarantee your peace of mind that work is completed quickly and to deadlines, with outstanding quality results.
- Truckmounted steam carpet cleaning means you get a fantastic clean and with our extra long hose extensions, our van sits far outside, out of sight and earshot so that we can clean quietly and effectively in your premises as the waste water is extracted out to our van.
For all your commercial cleaning requirements, from carpets and upholstery in your commercial premises, through to office cleaning and contract cleaning – please get in touch to find out how our team of dedicated and skilled cleaning technicians and staff can help get your business premises clean, fresh and maintained to the highest standards.
We are very pleased to announce that after our application was accepted and we are now fully approved members of TACCA – The Approved Carpet Cleaners Association
TACCA is a new and exciting trade association for UK carpet cleaners that was formed in March 2011 by a group of extremely passionate carpet cleaners, dedicated to raising the public profile of the profession. The founding members from right across the UK began with extensive online discussions about how to change the public opinions about carpet cleaning.
The founding members wanted to find a means of educating the public about the pitfalls of certain carpet cleaning methods and also demonstrate the value for money they get when choosing carpet cleaners who know what they are doing. Together the founding members put out a request to find like-minded carpet cleaners who could join together to make a difference and take on the inferior carpet cleaning alternatives out there.
As passionate and dedicated professional cleaning service providers in Merseyside, here at Metroclean Ltd we were really keen to be involved in helping to educate the general public about the quality of our cleaning services and demonstrate our commitment to customer satisfaction and ongoing training and education in order to continue exceeding our customer’s expectations.
