Whether it be a Town Hall, pub or dining room, or office block KnuWhizz can help you with your Commercial carpet cleaning in Ballarat and surrounds. Most commercial buildings, halls or even some pubs, have what is called ole-fin carpet. The more common name for this carpet is polypropylene. It is an oil based, usually thin backed carpet, cheap and has a few properties:-
Solution Died– It is died in manufacturing so its colors are permanent.
Stain resistant- It is resistant to most alkalies and acids which include any water based liquid. Ie. Wines, juices, soft drinks. This makes it resistant to staining.
Attraction to oils– Since it is oil based it will attract oil based substances. Oily soils can be very difficult to remove over time and can become permanent
Poor Resilience– Even though the fibers are strong, they can be prone to matting or crushing in heavy traffic areas. This can be accompanied by a grey or worn faded look. Crushing is not reversible.
Commercial Carpet Cleaning Ballarat
What we noticed on this job was heavy staining of food stains and liquid stains. Obviously being a town hall, there was a lot of high traffic areas and food and liquid spills. By applying a higher concentration of pre-spray chemical and allowing the chemical to sit “dwell” for longer allowed almost all the food and drink stains to be removed. Since ole-fin is water resistant and stain resistant it will dry quickly after being wet and is a good choice for low traffic, damp or well lit areas – computer rooms, outdoor patios or basements or workrooms.
Below you can see some of the images from the job both before and after. As you will see all of the stains have been removed. Remember though that some stains may become permanent so it is always a good idea to buy a darker color carpet.
