It’s great to have a floor covering which looks and feels like carpet but is much less susceptible to dirt and spills. This is the reason why so many homeowners and businesses opt for Flotex. While it requires very little care, it is still not completely maintenance-free. Learn about the main Flotex cleaning techniques and how they should be used correctly.

 

 

The Right Vacuuming Technique

It is best to vacuum this type of floor covering at least once a week and possibly more often, especially if you have small children and/or pets. Use the carpet attachment and adjust it to the lowest setting, so that the debris stuck at the bottom of the pile could be picked up. You should not worry about damaging the fibres as they are made of nylon. In fact, this is the reason why this type of floor covering doesn’t collect too much dust and dirt over time.

Before you begin the actual Flotex cleaning, you may want to clean the area with a rubber brush, if you have a pet, to ensure that the fine hairs will be removed or at least come up to the surface where the vacuum could easily pick them up. You should push the vacuum cleaner forward at top speed and backwards at half speed. This will give you not only cleanliness but also the more intense colour and fluff which are characteristic for the floor covering.

 

Dealing with Food Spills

These are quite common and extremely annoying too, but there is a Flotex cleaning technique which you can use to get rid of them quickly and effectively. The key thing is to act immediately. Grab a spoon and scoop as much of the food as possible, going from the outside in to ensure that you won’t spread the spill. Then you should dissolve liquid detergent or carpet shampoo into hot water and scrub the area with a soft-bristled brush. If you decided to use detergent, you should dissolve one teaspoon in five litres of water. Remember to rinse the area with plain water and to pat it dry, using a microfiber cloth.[/su_list]

 

Removing Liquid Spills

Use kitchen paper towel or a white cotton cloth to blot the stain. The white colour is crucial as otherwise, you risk colour transfer from the paper towel or cloth to the carpet. When blotting the spill, pat gently instead of pushing hard or the liquid will go further down the pile. If any of the liquid still remains, you can use the Flotex cleaning technique with the application of a solution described above.

 

Regular Professional Cleaning

Even with diligent maintenance, it’s possible that some dust and dirt still lurks in the floor covering. Additionally, if you are not there to act quickly in case of spills, you could end up with stubborn stains. Pet stains are also extremely difficult to get rid of permanently with DIY techniques.

 

The solution to all of these issues is to use a professional Flotex cleaning service in North Yorkshire. The specialists of Highfield TS apply a hot-water extraction technique using advanced equipment and top-quality materials to produce top results.

The cool feel and the unique patterns make stone floors incredibly attractive and even enchanting.
But how about maintenance? If you don’t give them enough care or you make a mistake while cleaning, it could cost you. The good news is that modern stone floor restoration methods are highly advanced and produce superb results. Find out when you will need to call a professional company to restore your stone floor.

 

  1. Dirt that Can’t Be Removed

The floor looks as if it has a darker film over it and no washing with a mop can help. The only solution to this problem is deep cleaning with a specially formulated product and special brush and pad machines.

  1. Discolouration Affecting the Floor’s Look

It is most often caused by chemicals, either spilled accidentally or used for cleaning. The list includes pool chemicals, acidic liquids and ammonia, to name the main ones. Experts can remove discoloration with special treatment designed to target the very nature of the stain.

  1. Clearly Visible Scratches

These are usually left by dirt and sand particles which people have brought in. This issue is common even in places where the floors are cleaned regularly. One way to fight the problem is to place doormats at the doors. Scratches can also be caused by abrasive cleaning materials and worn tools. Stone floor restoration involves polishing which makes scratches go away.

  1. Deep Stains

They require special treatment based on their nature. Most can be effectively removed without a single trace remaining.

  1. Sealant in Poor Condition

When it has been improperly installed, it could cause more harm than good. The worn and damaged sealant should be removed and the floor should be cleaned, if necessary before high-quality sealant is applied in the right way.

  1. Dirty and/or Stained Grout

Deep cleaning as part of stone floor restoration is the only solution to this problem. Refrain from homemade solutions like making a paste with baking soda and vinegar as the acid could damage the stone.

  1. Visible Cracks or Pieces Chipped Off

These issues are not common given how strong stone is, but with proper repair, the floor can be as good as new once again. It’s essential for the job to be done accurately.

  1. Dull Top Surface

This could happen to marble and terrazzo floors which can suffer from heavy traffic over time. The solution involves gentle removal of the topmost layer of the stone, so that the new one can come up and truly shine.

  1. Lack of Lustre

This issue is easily resolved with polishing which is an integral part of stone floor restoration. With some types of stone such as terracotta and travertine, you can opt for a high-gloss finish which is super chic.

  1. It’s Time for a New Look

Your stone floor could be in good condition, but if you want to give it a makeover, you can opt for restoration with confidence. It’s perfectly possible for a floor with a glossy finish to regain its natural look with the right technique.

When you decide to go for stone floor restoration, it’s important to pick the right professionals for the job. Highfield TS is a specialist company with long-term experience and solid reputation.

11 Little Tricks to Achieve the Best Results in Karndean Floor Cleaning

By hights1 On September 9, 2017 No Comments

 

Karndean floor cleaning

 

 

If you are curious about how Highfield TS can help you with your Karndean Floor Cleaning
Give Paul at Highfield TS a call on: 07922 022 614 for a FREE consultation.

 

 

 

Since you’re here, we figured you would like some tips on Karndean floor cleaning.
After all, once you have that floor installed, it looks great and you really want to keep it looking good for as long as possible. So here we are, giving you some little tricks you can use in order to achieve the best results in Karndean floor cleaning …

 

 

 

Hardwood Floor Vacuum

Starting out, we would like to recommend a hardwood floor vacuum. Mind you, some people are under the impression that they have to sweep their floor and vacuum their carpet. However, there are vacuums that are specifically aimed at hardwood floor cleaning and those are the ones you should choose. Many people find it easier to vacuum their floor than sweeping it and that is understandable. Plus, when you use a broom, you are at risk of rubbing the dirt into the floor, which will cause scratches.

 

 

Karndean Floor Cleaning Products

While some have their Karndean flooring installed and continue using the same floor cleaning products they have always used, you may want to switch it up. There are products that are specifically aimed at Karndean floor cleaning and we recommend those for best results.

 

 

Start by Protecting the Floor

At every entrance, you should place a doormat. There are many different types of doormat you can choose from and they do a great job at keeping the dirt and dust off of your Karndean floor. This will help protect your floor from getting scratched.

 

 

Furniture Marks

We find furniture marks annoying, but there’s a way to avoid them! For best results, we recommend using glides or felt feet.

 

 

Remove the Shoes at the Doorway

Have you ever had someone tell you to remove your shoes before you go into their house? This is because they want to keep their floor clean and not drag dirt into the house. For this reason, you may want to start leaving the shoes at the door. This may sound like an aggravating trick, but it will do a great job at making it easier to clean your floor.

 

 

Sweep on a Regular Basis

If you don’t vacuum the floor, then sweep it on a regular basis. Some may get away with sweeping it twice a week, but if you have children and pets, you may want to sweep it every other day. If you choose to use a broom, just make sure you use one that has soft bristles on it.

 

 

Refresh

Every six months, we recommend a refresh. Don’t worry, refreshing the floor isn’t hard at all. Have you ever heard of Karndean’s Remove product? You can use it in order to prepare the floor for a nice protective satin finish coating called Karndean Refresh. This product is used in order to improve the appearance of scratches that are on the floor and help prevent future damage.

 

 

Mopping the Floor

For everyday cleaning, sweep away loose debris and mix it up with the Karndean Clean solution (make sure you use the recommended amount of water with it – the measurements are on the label). Once you have it ready, mop the floor, then remove any excess solution that may be left behind.

 

 

Spills

When something is spilled on the floor, it is important that you properly mop it up right away. Otherwise, it could set in and be very difficult to eliminate.

 

 

Avoid Dragging Furniture

Just as you should place glides or felt feet under your furniture, you should avoid dragging the furniture. If you are rearranging your room, have someone help you lift the furniture.

 

 

Avoid Household Cleaners
Yes, there are regular household cleaners that seem pretty cool, but you should avoid them, especially if they’re bleach-based. These products could cause discoloration to your floor and make it slippery.

 

Paul at Highfield TS has many tricks he uses on a daily basis. We recommend giving him a call for all of your Karndean floor cleaning needs.

5 Tips to Avoid Failure in Karndean Floor Cleaning

By hights1 On September 1, 2017 No Comments

Karndean Floor Cleaning

 

Karndean floor cleaning

 

 

You finally have the Karndean flooring installed and now it’s time to really get down to business and make sure you have all of your cleaning facts in place. There are certain things you should do and shouldn’t do when it comes to cleaning Karndean flooring – below, we are going to give you 5 tips to avoid failure in Karndean floor cleaning …

 

1. Stubborn Stains

When you have stubborn stains on hand, you can spot clean using undiluted Karndean Remove or Clean. As soon as possible, blot the stain. If it’s a solid stain, start from the outside in. Pay close attention to the product you use for stain removal on Karndean flooring – it needs to be specifically formulated for the type of stain you are dealing with.

 

2. Careful with Certain Cleaners

While you will go above and beyond in order to clean your floor and maintain it, it is important that you pay attention to what you’re using to clean your floor. For example, some cleaners like baking soda may do a good job at absorbing stains, but if you rub it in too hard it could scratch the flooring. After you use it, you need to remove every grain in order to avoid this problem.

 

3. Regularly Sweep the Floor

Scratching is one of the biggest problems with this type of flooring, so it is important you do all you can in order to keep it scratch-free. By sweeping the floor on a regular basis, you will be eliminating the loose dirt or grit that is responsible for causing scratches. It is okay to us a vacuum, but make sure the type of vacuum you choose to use is suitable for Karndean flooring – you can check the manufacturer’s guidelines.

 

4. Avoid Regular Household Cleaners

cleaning karndean flooring

When cleaning your Karndean flooring, you shouldn’t use regular household cleaners or cleaners that are bleach-based. These type of cleaners will not only make your floor slippery afterwards, but it could also cause discolouration. Instead, aim for cleaners that are specifically aimed at Karndean flooring.

 

 

5. Effective Mopping

You can find a product that is specifically designed for Karndean floor cleaning that you can use for mopping your floors. While you could use any normal mop, the best mop would be a string mop. Many use a microfiber mop, which is just fine as well. Just make sure you avoid using sponge mops as those aren’t really going to do a good job for you. While mopping, make sure your mop isn’t too soggy and don’t scrub too much because scrubbing the floor could cause scratches.

 

Everyone knows that Karndean Design flooring is hardwearing and easy to look after. Check out this new video that shows you just how it’s done.

 

 

You could always leave Karndean floor cleaning to the professionals of Highfield TS – they’re fully capable of producing high-quality results. The company has an excellent reputation and a large amount of experience, so you cannot go wrong if you choose them. On an ending note, if you need any additional advice on cleaning your Karndean flooring, go ahead and give Paul at Highfield TS a call on 07922 022 614.

5 Reasons Why You Should Invest In Amtico Floor Cleaning

By hights1 On August 29, 2017 No Comments

Amtico Floor Cleaning

 

amtico flooring north yorkshire

 

Amtico flooring is one of the most practical alternatives to using real wood.
When it comes to the latest natural wood designs, there is a

large amount to choose from. These designs range from the softest grains like mid toned classic oaks and white maple to the darkest colors like Wenge Wood. When you choose an Amtico floor, this means you’re not going to have to worry about having to re-finish your floor.

Mind you, having the flooring installed is only the first step – your next step is to make sure you keep it clean. Below, we are going to give you 5 reasons why you should invest in Amtico floor cleaning

 

 

 

  1. Beautify Your Home

When you walk into a home, what’s the first thing you notice about it? Many say “the flooring” and that is perfectly understandable. The flooring is the foundation of a home – if it’s dirty, it’s going to make the entire area look dirty. So, the first reason to invest in Amtico floor cleaning would be to beautify your home.

  1. Prevent Scratches

It is common for this type of flooring to get scratches. If you do not take time to have your floor properly cleaned, dirty and debris could build up on it, making it more prone to scratches. For this reason, we recommend routinely vacuuming or sweeping your floor.

  1. Visible Spots

Build-up on the flooring is going to abrade the surface. In fact, it will act a lot like sandpaper – you wouldn’t want to put sandpaper on your floor, would you? Plus, if you were to leave those spots on your floor, they could end up turning into permanent stains that are almost impossible to remove.

  1. Sanitary Environment

Let’s face it, people walk on the floor day in and day out. They go outside, and come in with goodness knows what on their feet. In order to keep a sanitary environment, Amtico floor cleaning is a must.

  1. Maintenance

If you want to dramatically increase years of use on your Amtico flooring, this is one of the best reasons to clean. Many companies require regular cleanings in order to keep in compliance with the warranties on the flooring. Besides, isn’t it great to walk on nice, freshly cleaned floors?

amtico floor cleanAs an added bonus, if you run a business, keeping your Amtico floor clean is a must. It creates a high level of performance at work. It’s a known fact that when people work in a clean environment, they have a tendency to be healthier, happier and more productive.

York Stone Floor Cleaning: 10 Things I Wish I’d Known Earlier

By hights1 On August 20, 2017 No Comments

York Stone Floor Cleaning

 

Strong and beautiful, York stone could be the perfect choice of floor covering for various areas in the home. I simply love it, but I couldn’t imagine that it required special care when I chose it for my house. Now I’m completely confident about York stone floor cleaning, but I wish I were better prepared at the start. Here are the key things which I believe every owner should be aware of.

 

 

  •  It’s Necessary Quite Often. 

    The tiny invisible pores of this stone can collect considerable amounts of dust and dirt particles, so weekly sweeping or vacuuming is crucial. Because of the nature of the material, professional cleaning of your York Stone floor is necessary at least once a year.

  •  Special Cleaning Agents Are Required.  

    You can’t clean this type of stone floor with traditional cleaning agents as they are typically acidic and can cause damage which may not be simple to fix later on. It’s essential that you use cleaning agents formulated especially for stone.

  •  Safe Equipment Is Key.  

    Just like all types of stone, this material is prone to scratching. That is why you must forget about hard-bristle brushes. You should also refrain from using plastic vacuum cleaner attachments which are worn. Worn wheels are not good for your floor either. Given this, you should use a soft-bristle brush attachment for vacuuming or a soft mop for sweeping. You can expect York stone floor cleaning specialists to use brush and pad machines for delivering effective results safely.

  •  DIY Doesn’t Produce Great Results.  

    While it is possible to hire equipment and buy advanced cleaning agents, I’ve discovered that I can’t achieve professional results simply because I’m not very good at making the accurate adjustments and using the right cleaner amounts.

  •  Stain Removal Isn’t Straightforward.  

    Blotting spills is one thing, but deep stains are quite difficult to remove. You have to know their origins and what treatment will be both effective and safe for the stone. When it comes to such tasks, I rely on professionals.

  •  Sealant Removal May Be Required.  

    When the sealant isn’t of good quality or has not been properly applied, it should be removed, because it can do more harm than good at the end of the day. I learned this from experience.

  •  Getting Reliable Protection Is Mandatory.  

    After deep York stone floor cleaning, the best way to keep the results is sealant application. It has to be of top quality and to be applied accurately.

  •  More Than Cleaning May Be Needed. 

    I do my best to protect the floor from scratching, but it doesn’t always work. That is why I often use polishing services along with cleaning ones. The results are awesome.

  •  It’s Easy to Achieve the Desired Aesthetics. 

    While cleaning helps York stone to regain its natural beauty, I’ve always found that it could look even better with some lustre. That is why I usually opt for a high-gloss finish when it comes to polishing.

  •   You Can Get Top Results in Little Time. 

    I’ve discovered this when using the expert York stone floor cleaning services of Highfield TS.

10 Things Everyone Hates About York Stone Floor Cleaning

By hights1 On August 19, 2017 No Comments

 York Stone Floor Cleaning

 

Cleaning York stone floor

 

The advantages of York stone flooring are known to everyone – fantastic aesthetics, huge durability and completely hypoallergenic. Where most people get it wrong when evaluating this option is maintenance. It’s not as simple as we’d all like it to be. That is why it is common to hear local homeowners complaining about DIY York stone floor cleaning. Discover the negative aspects and how they can be fixed.

 

 1. Scrubbing Could Be Damaging  

This age-old cleaning technique isn’t recommended for stone floors as it could leave some nasty scratches, especially if a hard-bristled brush is used. You should blot spills quickly, but in case of stains, it’s better to use professional York stone floor cleaning services.

 

 2. Not All Vacuum Cleaners Work  

Vacuuming York stone floors is important, but worn attachment and vacuum cleaner wheels could scratch them, so you’d better watch out. It’s best to use a dry mop for sweeping such floors regularly.

 

 3. Frequent Mop Changing Required 

Since even sponge mops can collect dirt particles, sand and tiny debris, they should be changed frequently to avoid scratching the stone floor. It may be a bit annoying, but this is the way to protect your investment.

 

 4. Traditional Cleaners Could Be Dangerous 

Even if there is a tiny amount of acid or bleach in the cleaning agent, this could have a considerable adverse impact on the stone tiles. Similarly, abrasive cleaners can scratch the surface. When you hire York stone floor cleaning services, you can expect the provider to use only safe products. When you buy ones for home use, make sure that they are formulated especially for stone.

 

 5. The Need for Quick Reaction in case of a Spill 

You need to jump off the couch and blot the spill right away. Otherwise, it may penetrate into the porous stone and leave a stain.

 

 6. Challenges with Grout Cleaning 

Usually, you’d scrub grout with an acidic solution to clean it, but this simply doesn’t work when you have York stone tile. Professional deep cleaning is the best way to get effective results safely.

 

 7. Inability to Overcome Surface Dullness 

This issue is usually due to extensive use and can arise even if the floor receives perfect care from the owner. You can fix it by hiring a professional company which offers not only cleaning, but full restoration services, which include stripping and polishing.

 

 8. Darkening of the Floor Despite Regular Cleaning 

Even with regular vacuuming, sweeping and washing, some dust and dirt particles may remain in the pores of the stone, leaving the floor looking darker than it is. You can fix this with professional York stone floor cleaning.

 

 9. Different Stains Have to Be Treated Differently 

While hot water and a solution with mild detergent could help in some cases, chemical stains, in particular, require professional treatment. If you make experiments by yourself, you could end up causing more damage.

 

 10. The Sealant Is at Risk of Damage 

If you use inappropriate cleaning techniques and methods, you can easily damage the sealant which protects the stone from dirt and stains.

 

To solve this problem effectively, you can hire a professional York stone floor cleaning service provider that specializes in applying sealant too. Highfield TS are local specialists with excellent reviews.

Five Mind Numbing Facts About Amtico Floor Cleaning

By hights1 On August 16, 2017 No Comments

Amtico Floor Cleaning

An Amtico floor is capable of recreating the appearance of other types of flooring.
It is available in a variety of textures, styles and colours as a vinyl-based product. Common selections include those that look like stone tiles and wood flooring.  One of the main benefits of this flooring would be the fact that it is long-lasting, but only if you take the proper steps during your Amtico floor cleaning routine.

 

amtico floor harrogate

At the end of the day, dirty paws, muddy feet, spilled drinks, dropped food, furniture and a whole array of other elements play a part in the wear and tear of the flooring. Yes, it would be great if we could put a clear film on top of the floors in order to preserve and protect them from damage and dirt, but unfortunately, this is not possible.

 

 

Five Mind Numbing Facts About Amtico Floor Cleaning

1. Amtico Floor Cleaning Solution

Amtico floor cleaning doesn’t involve rocket scientist. There are basic precautions to take in order to make sure the floor continues to look good for many years to come. There are floor care products that are specifically aimed at Amtico floor cleaning – this makes choosing the right products easier.

2. Routine Maintenance

Taking appropriate maintenance procedures will help preserve the flooring. The frequency of maintenance will all depend on the amount of foot traffic, the colour and type of flooring. When possible, prevent dirt from staying on the floor as it can cause scratches.

3. Matting System

While we’re not able to preserve our floors by putting a clear coat of film on them, we can use a barrier matting system. A matting system will help prevent abrasive material from getting on the floors and will make maintenance a whole lot easier. Go ahead and place a suitable barrier matting system at each entry way.

4. Manual Mopping

Take the solution of Amtico FloorCare Maintainer that we told you about in the beginning and dilute it with water according to the instructions that are on the container.

For manual mopping, follow these steps:

  • Use a well-wrung mop to apply the solution.
  • Use overlapping strokes to mop.
  • Stop and rinse the mop frequently and change the solution when you feel it needs changing.
  • Make sure the floor has time to dry thoroughly.

Tip: If you continue mopping the entire house with the same water, it will get dirty and this is going to cause a dirty residue on the surface of the floor.

5. Strip the Floor Once a Year

At least one time a year, you should thoroughly strip the floor – you can do this with Amtico International FloorCare stripper. This will remove that in-grained dirt. If you find it hard to strip the floor, go ahead and give Paul at Highfield TS a call.  Highfield TS specializes in Amtico floor cleaning and they have many years of experience in dealing with this type of flooring.

The Truth About Karndean Floor Cleaning Is About To Be Revealed

By hights1 On August 12, 2017 No Comments

 
Karndean Floor Cleaning.

Once you have your Karndean floor successfully installed, it is important that you take care of it. Yes, it is strong, durable and looks beautiful, but if you don’t follow the proper floor cleaning techniques, it’s not going to last for decades, like it is supposed to. Don’t worry though, because cleaning that floor doesn’t take a scientist and there are some special tricks you should know about.

Scratches

Starting out, we would like to cover scratching. If you do not clean your floor properly, scratches will start to show you. Never use hard bristles, harsh chemicals or abrasives to clean the floor – for dry cleaning, use soft bristles. Before wet cleaning, either sweep or vacuum the floor, otherwise, the small debris and dirt could get stuck in the mop and cause scratches.

Amount of Cleaner and Water

Next, we would like to cover the amount of cleaner you use. Many people are under the impression that soaking their floor in cleaner is a good idea, but it’s really not. When cleaning your Karndean flooring, make sure you stick to the correct ratio of cleaning products to water. For maximum protection, we recommend a pH neutral cleaner. Also, this doesn’t mean you should go and splash water all over the floor. In fact, a soggy mop isn’t a good idea either – this will cause you to have small spots of the solution.

Water Temperature

The water temperature is something else you need to pay attention to. We’ve had people who swore hot water did the trick, but in all actuality, it does more harm than good. While hot water may be great for washing clothes, when it comes to Karndean floor cleaning, it does more harm than good and is definitely something you should avoid.

Stains

When you spill something on your floor, don’t let it sit there. The longer the stain sits, the worse it’s going to be to remove. If it’s something that is solid, scoop it up starting from the outside and work your way to the middle. Now, you’ll want to use a product to get rid of the stain, but it’s important to make sure it is specifically targeted for the stain you have on your flooring. Some may recommend natural home cleaners like baking soda. However, this is not a good idea, because something like baking soda can cause scratches. If you have to use baking soda, don’t rub it in too hard and make sure you remove every grain afterwards.

 

So now that you know the truth about Karndean floor cleaning, as long as you use these tricks we just gave you, your floor can easily last for decades. Sometimes though, even with the right tips, Karndean floor cleaning can be tricky. For this reason, many turn to Highfield TS experts and have them take over their cleaning responsibilities.

7 Things You Most Likely Didn’t Know About Flotex Cleaning

By hights1 On August 5, 2017 No Comments

 Flotex Cleaning

Because of its nylon fibres which don’t trap dust, dirt and debris, Flotex is much easier to clean compared to the classic carpet. However, this doesn’t mean that you can just vacuum it every other week and enjoy the same kind of look and feel as on day one. Here are some essential tips on Flotex cleaning which will surely come in handy when it comes to maintaining this type of floor covering.

 

  • pH-Neutral Cleaners Are Mandatory

    Both highly acidic and highly alkaline cleaning agents could cause damage to both the fibre and the dye of Flotex floors. That is why your safest best when buying a cleaning product, is to go for one which is pH-neutral. It’s also possible to use liquid detergent but in tiny amounts.

  • Weak Cleaning Solution Is Best.

    It’s typically recommended that you dissolve a teaspoon of detergent into five litres of hot water to use for Flotex cleaning. This is how weak the solution should be, no matter whether your objective is simply to remove dirt or to deal with a spill to prevent permanent staining.

  • You Can’t Go without Rinsing.

    Most people don’t know that without rinsing a section with a liquid spill that they’ve just cleaned, a stain can appear due to the detergent remaining in the carpet. At the same time, rinsing is quick and easy. Just pour a bit of plain water on a cloth and wipe the area gently, without pressing hard.

  • Separate Pet Hair Removal Is Necessary.

    Whether you are planning to vacuum or wash the floor for best Flotex cleaning results, you should remove per hair first to achieve the best possible results. You can use a damp cloth or a specially designed rubber brush for the purpose. Just make sure that you make passes in the direction of the pile.

  • Water Doesn’t Remove All Stains.

    You must not use it if you spill dry items like detergent, pool chemicals or herbs. This is because it will only activate compounds which could cause damage to the fibres and dye. The right Flotex cleaning approach is to vacuum dry spills.

  • Don’t Cut Fibres with Chewing Gum on Them.

    This is also true when there are hard sweets and modelling clay on the floor. The most effective solution, in this case, is to freeze the item and then break the pieces to release the fibres. Just place one or two ice cubes in a plastic bag and apply it to the item. It’s easy to tell when it’s hard enough to be broken easily.

  • Be Extra Careful with Stain Removers

    It’s common sense to use spirit to remove pen ink, for example. However, you should not rush to apply this kind of treatment before you are certain that it is safe for both the fibres and the dye of your floor covering. You should consult the owner’s manual and perform a test by applying a tiny drop of the cleaning agent in the corner. Generally, if you are not sure about the nature of the stain, you should leave the removal to the experts.

Highfield TS have all the skills and experience necessary to carry out your Flotex floor cleaning to the highest standards.  We can give you 100% free advice on the cleaning requirements of your Flotex flooring.

5 Secrets About Karndean Floor Cleaning Only Highfield TS Know

By hights1 On August 1, 2017 No Comments

Karndean Floor Cleaning

 

Karndean Floor Cleaning

You love the looks and strength of your Karndean floor. It is exceptionally durable and can remain in great condition for decades. The only thing which you have to do is to care for it well. Is Karndean floor cleaning simple? It is not rocket science for sure, but there are tricks and tips that you should be aware of and stick to strictly.

1. Vacuuming with Caution

Some people encourage you to vacuum your vinyl floor while others say that it is completely out of the question. Who’s right? You can use a vacuum cleaner for picking up dust and dirt weekly and several times a week, if needed, provided that it is safe for vinyl. The instruction manual will give you the answer. Generally, you should not use the so-called beater bar attachment for Karndean floor cleaning, but one with soft bristles. Check the wheels of the vacuum and confirm that they are smooth to avoid scratching the floor. Wearing and imperfections could be more damaging than you think.

2. Less Is More

Stronger solution means better cleaning? Not really, as the chemicals could cause harm. Always stick to the recommended ratio of cleaning product to water for when cleaning your Karndean flooring . It is best if you use a pH neutral cleaner for maximum protection. Soaking the mop too much is not a good idea either. If it’s too soggy, you will end with small pools of the solution which may be difficult to rinse. Another key thing to note is that higher water temperature may not be good for your floor.

3. Reliable Damage Protection

Scratching is the biggest threat to Karndean floors and you have to keep this in mind when cleaning yours. Always use a tool with soft bristles for dry cleaning. Always sweep or vacuum the floor before wet cleaning to prevent small debris from getting stuck to the strings of the mop and causing scratches. Never use abrasive cleaning products or tools.

4. Meticulous Stain Removal

Blot the spill as soon as possible. If it’s solid, scoop it from the outside in. The product which you use for stain removal must be formulated especially for the stain that you are dealing with. You should be extra careful with home cleaners such as baking soda, for example. While it can absorb most beverage stains, you should not rub it hard as it can cause scratches. You must remove every grain after use to avoid this problem.

5. Achieving Lasting Refreshment

It’s perfectly possible to get an attractive satin finish after Karndean floor cleaning. The floor must be stripped of dirt and grease in the first place and they rinsed thoroughly. The finishing product can be applied only after complete drying. The key to success is to apply not one, but two or three layers of coating. The technique involves waiting for the previous layer to dry completely before applying the next one.

Take advantage of these key secrets shared by the Highfield TS experts and rely on them to take over cleaning your Karndean floor whenever necessary and to deliver outstanding results. If there is anything you are unsure of  just give Paul at Highfield TS a call and he will give you 100% free advice on cleaning your Karndean floor.

Seven Things You Need to Know About Amtico Floor Cleaning

By hights1 On July 27, 2017 No Comments

amtico floor cleaning

Amtico Floor Cleaning

Homeowners choose to get Amtico floor because of the durability, wide selection of styles, patterns and colours and the simple maintenance. It is much easier to care for this type of floor compared to hardwood or marble, for example. However, this doesn’t mean that you can go without Amtico floor cleaning. Find out how to do it properly and get the best possible results.

 

1. Start with Protection

Place a doormat in front of every entrance to your home to minimise the amount of dust and dirt that people bring from the outside and make cleaning your Amtico floor easier. This will help to protect the floor from scratching too. To avoid furniture marks which are always incredibly annoying, use felt feet or glides

2. Regular Sweeping Is Key

The frequency depends on your individual needs. Usually, sweeping the floor once or twice a week is sufficient. If you have kids, you will most likely have to do it more often. It’s best if you use a soft-bristled broom to protect the floor from scratching.

3. Careful Vacuuming

Using a vacuum cleaner is more efficient compared to sweeping. Just remember to use the right attachment for hard floors. It’s equally important to ensure that the wheels won’t scratch the surface. Make overlapping passes for best results. Use the crevice tool to clean tight areas including corners.

4. Effective Mop Cleaning

There is a product designed especially for Amtico floor cleaning which you can use to prepare the solution. The best tool for the job is a string mop. A microfiber one is fine too. Just avoid sponge mops as they don’t perform well. For best results, the mop should not be too soggy. Make overlapping passes and don’t scrub too much.

5. Don’t Forget Rinsing

Rinse the mop thoroughly first. Then do the same with the bucket. This is important since some of the solutions may remain on the bottom and walls. Then add fresh water and rinse the entire floor. This will guarantee that there will not be any traces of the solution on it.

6. Stubborn Dirt Removal

This step will most likely be required only once or twice a year. The flooring manufacturer has a product formulated especially for this. You need to prepare a solution with it, let it stay on for ten minutes after the application and then rinse the floor thoroughly. As long as you follow the instructions strictly, you will get the desired Amtico floor cleaning results. Just remember that applying too much of the product is not a good idea. The same is true for vigorous rubbing.

7. Finishing for a Fresh Look

You can use a specially formulated dressing product to add a satin finish to the floor. This is not a challenging task. The key thing is to use an applicator mop with a flat head which is specially designed for the purpose. Applying the right amount of the product is essential.

Alternatively, you can leave Amtico floor cleaning to the professionals of Highfield TS who will produce top results quickly. The company has extensive experience and an excellent reputation.

The Biggest Problem With Stone Floor Restoration, And How You Can Fix It

By hights1 On July 21, 2017 No Comments

The Biggest Problem With Stone Floor Restoration.

Are you considering stone floor restoration? Then you should have a clear idea of how it should be done. When the job is done properly, you will have a floor which looks awesome and is in top shape.

 

What Could Go Wrong

Poor understanding of the nature of the stone which requires restoration is perhaps the most serious issue which you can encounter. It’s one thing to deal with marble and another to work with granite or terracotta. Each type of stone has its own characteristics that should be taken into account. For example, some types are more porous than others and this causes them to stain more easily. The solution could be sealing or impregnation, with the choice once again depending on the structure of the stone. Similarly, some types of stone like marble benefit from stripping followed by polishing, as this enables them to have their natural beauty on display always.  The experienced floor tecnicians at Highfield TS are experienced in the field of restoring stone floors and you can rest assured they will do a professional job.

restoring a stone floor

While stone is amazingly strong and durable, it could get damaged if it doesn’t receive the appropriate treatment. When it comes to stone floor restoration, the choice of materials and tools is essential. The ideal cleaning product is pH-neutral and does an excellent job with getting into the pores of the stone and picking up those nasty dirt, sand and debris particles which cause dullness and making the natural colour darker. In the same way, it’s crucial for the tools used for cleaning, polishing and other jobs to be in perfect condition. A new polishing pad should be used for each job, for instance.

How to Get the Best Results

It’s not hard at all to avoid the key issues described above. You just need to know how to hire the right company for stone floor restoration. It involves some research, but it will all be worth it in the end. While it makes sense to read views and to take into account the experience of the company, you should focus extensively on the techniques, materials and equipment which they use.

The main restoration techniques include deep cleaning, polishing and sealing or impregnation. The cleaning should involve stain removal. It’s essential for each stain to be treated individually, given its nature.

stone floor cleaning

 

Polishing is effective for removing scratches left by all kinds of abrasive particles. Sometimes, it is not sufficient, however. In such cases, depending on the nature of the stone, the specialists use a technique called stripping for the removal of the topmost layer of the stone. It could be the ideal solution for discolouration, deep scratches, great dullness and improperly applied sealant which has done more harm than good over time.

When it comes to sealing as part of restoring the stone floor, you have to ensure that the service provider will use a proven application technique and a product which is suitable for your stone and is also of very high quality. It is also possible to have a glossy finish added to your floor to enhance its natural lustre. A top company like Highfield TS can provide a restoration service and will offer these option.

Now you know how to deal with the biggest problem associated with stone floor restoration. You can hire experts in the field like Highfield TS with confidence.

The Pros and Cons of Stone Cleaning

By hights1 On July 8, 2017 No Comments

Stone Cleaning

Stone flooring is exceptionally beautiful and extremely durable too. Given that it is also a large investment for any household or business, it requires proper care. Undoubtedly, stone cleaning is essential, but are you sure that you are doing it right? Find out how it should be done and what cleaning methods and agents should be avoided at all costs.

Key Benefits to Consider

stone cleaningStone cleaning is required often. Since stone is porous, a liquid can get absorbed quite quickly. While high-quality sealant will slow down the process immensely, you should be quick to act and wipe the floor with soft white kitchen paper towel. Since dirt particles can scratch the surface, frequent cleaning with a dust mop is equally important. It makes sense to use professional deep surface cleaning at least once a year or more often if required. They could be useful after major home renovation projects too. Let’s see the main benefits that you will get with them.

 

Dirt removal

Stain removal

Major Mistakes to Avoid

When stone cleaning is not done correctly, it could go terribly wrong. Often, it is homeowners opting for the wrong kinds of materials and/or tools who cause damage. Let’s take a look at what you should stay away from:

Applying acidic solutions – While white vinegar and lemon juice are commonly recommended as “universal” home cleaning agents, they could cause damage to stone because of their acidic nature. Avoid the use of commercial products containing acidic compounds also.

Using tools that can scratch the floor – Don’t vacuum your stone floor with a vacuum cleaner whose wheels and/or attachments are worn as they can easily scratch the surface. You can use a soft dry mop for sweeping the floor clean instead.

Now you have a clear idea of the wrong way and the right way to clean stone floors. When it comes to professional stone cleaning, you can rely on Highfield TS to do an excellent job.

If you love your stone floor then you will want to ensure it is being looked after by professionals.  Highfield TS has 16 years experience in the specialist stone floor cleaning industry and a number of positive reviews they have collected shows they only offer the very best service.

Stone Floor Cleaning – 5 Things Everyone Gets Wrong.

By hights1 On July 1, 2017 No Comments

Stone Floor Cleaning

It’s important to make stone floor cleaning an integral part of home maintenance. Stone is exceptionally durable in addition to having a unique charm, but it is a natural material and its porous structure requires extra care to be exercised on the part of owners. Regrettably, it’s common for people to make mistakes when cleaning stone floors. Discover what you should not do and what to do instead.

  1. Vacuuming the Wrong Way

stone floor cleaningMany experts recommend that you simply sweep dirt with a soft dry mop. However, this could be a tedious task, which has to be done every few days if not daily to produce the desired results. Without a doubt, vacuuming is more effective, but you should know how to do it properly.

Use the attachment with the softest bristles and slide it on the floor gently. Remember that pushing it down too hard could cause scratches. Additionally, it’s essential that the wheels and legs of the vacuum cleaner are not worn as they could scratch the surface badly. Consider using pads and covers, if needed, to achieve the best stone floor cleaning results.

  1. Slow Reaction to Spills

stone cleaning spillsThe different types of stone can absorb liquid quite quickly, with the actual rate depending on how porous they are. While high-quality sealant can keep the liquid out for a long time, it may penetrate eventually. That is why you should clean spills immediately. Use a white cloth or kitchen paper towel to wipe the liquid. Don’t press against the floor as you may push some liquid down. In case of an oily stain, dampen the cloth or paper towel in hot water for best stone floor cleaning results.

  1. Using Classic Homemade Cleaners

stone floor cleasningYou’ve heard how solutions with lemon juice and vinegar could do wonders for removing grime from all kinds of surfaces, right? The truth is that they could damage stone because of their acidic composition. If you want to prepare an effective solution, you should use soap with neutral pH and no acidic ingredients. Alternatively, you can use a specially formulated stone cleaner.

 

 

  1. Experimenting with Grout Cleaning

cleaning stone floorGrout is notorious for getting too dirty, too quickly, but this doesn’t mean that you have to scrub it with an abrasive cleaner and a hard-bristled brush, especially when it keeps together stone tiles. The best solution to the problem is deep grout cleaning performed by a professional who can do the job safely. It makes sense for it to be an integral part of stone floor cleaning.

 

 

  1. Provide Full Protection

protect stone floorModern sealants don’t alter the natural texture and colours of stone floors. Quite the opposite, they can enhance them. When the application of a sealant is not possible because of the nature of the stone, impregnation could do an equally good job. Remember that you have to put effort into protecting the stone floor too. Place doormats at the entryways of your house and consider placing rugs in high-traffic areas. Shake them regularly to minimise the risk of abrasive particles harming your stone floor.

To ensure that you will get effective professional stone floor cleaning, you can count on the specialists of Highfield TS.

Upholstery Cleaning Thirsk

By hights1 On May 23, 2017 No Comments

 

Upholstery Cleaning Thirsk

Your sofa and chairs are very often items of furniture that are often overlooked when you are thinking of calling on the services of professional cleaners. Your carpet may be a larger item but you probably spend more time relaxing on your favourite sofa or armchair!

 

There are three main reasons why most people get their upholstery cleaned.

 

upholstery cleaning thirsk1. Appearance: First and foremost the reason most people give for getting their upholstery cleaned is to help maintain the appearance of their furniture. If you never clean your upholstery it will very quickly become grimy and dirty looking. If it is cleaned regularly then it will keep its ‘as new’ appearance for much longer.

 

 

2. Family Health: As previously mentioned in other cleaning articles bacteria can grow and multiply right under your nose without you even being aware of it. Dirt can multiply to such an extent that it becomes a problem to your family’s health. This bacteria can also cause unpleasant odours.

 

Image result for air quality3. Air Quality: Most people don’t realise that the air quality in the home is directly affected by the cleanliness of the carpets and upholstery. Ensuring that your upholstery is kept as clean as possible goes some way to keeping the air quality in your home as fresh and healthy as possible. Bad air quality in any home can cause breathing problems. By cleaning your furniture regularly you can keep your upholstery in tip top condition as well as improve your indoor air quality and your health.

Highfield TS were recently called to a home where the owner wanted to try and restore their sofa back to a cleaner condition. He decided to give Paul at Highfield TS a call after reading all the fantastic reviews on the website and Facebook.
The technicians at Highfield TS agreed to take a look and give a free no obligation quote. The sofa was made of a chenille fabric and was deeply engrained with high levels of soiling.  The staining was just a general build up of everyday grease and dirt from hands and clothing. Thankfully it was not newspaper print, as this is a challenge to remove.

 

 

The Highfield TS specialist made a professional judgement to use a steam cleaning system. Highfield TS does have dry cleaning systems, although they would not be successful on this level of soiling.
A specialist cleaning job like this would require a careful selection of the appropriate cleaning product. The one selected by Highfield TS was a new product made from vegetable oil. The reason this was possible was because the skilled technicians at Highfield TS strive to keep themselves up to date with new products.

 

 

The sofa took 45 minutes to clean and the spectacular results shocked the customer. What impressed the customer was the guarantee made by Highfield TS. The customer was told if Highfield TS could not achieve the best results, there would be no charge “. The customer was delighted. In fact, they were so delighted they sent a very positive review.

 

 

 Customer Review  We have a very nice cloth covered settee and two arm chairs which after being used by teenagers had been left in such a grubby state with stains and well ground in dirt we considered taking the whole lot to tip I was given ‘Highfield T S’ contact details from a friend and contacted them directly Paul came around initially to inspect and provide an assessment and quotation for doing the work He advised that one of the arm chairs was particularly bad and beyond saving. A view with which I concurred. Paul turned up promptly at the agreed time and date and commenced cleaning The result after 4hrs hard work was incredible, ALL of the furniture was brought back to its original colour including the arm chair that we both considered was beyond recovery We are delighted with the result. Paul is a very well mannered, hard working professional man who provided a service and delivered beyond our expectation We would HIGHLY RECOMMEND ‘Highfield T S’ if you are considering any professional upholstery cleaning 10/10 – Thank you Paul

 

So there you have it, another satisfied customer of Highfield TS.  If you think your upholstery could do with a spring clean then please give Paul a call.
