Mpower is best used fresh on each job due to its colloidal action .

I mix up my solution on the job with hand hot water and for general cleaning Mix it at 120/1.

After vacuuming the carpet or upholstery I then liberally spray the item with Mpower ,I then proceed with agitation this is to give a even coat to all the fibres of the active solution on carpets I use mechanical agitation with either a oreck or crb machine .

I have found that a 20 to 25 min dwell works best on most jobs , once the dwell is completed I then Extract Using Just Plain water ,which then leaves no sticky  residue that other detergent based solutions can .

Rug Doctor V Professional carpet cleaner


Many people say they will clean their carpets with a Rug Doctor; after all, you can go to the supermarket and get a rug doctor for £30, right?

Oh yeah, don’t forget the detergent £9.99
And those spots probably need some kind of special remover. 
What about the Doggie smell and the urine stain that ‘Spot’ left for us? 
Don’t forget to grab the stair tool for the steps. 
All said and done it costs almost £50. Just check their website! £30 machine hire £9.99 detergent £9.99 Upholstery detergent £4.99 traffic lane cleaner that’s £54.97 and that’s just for a Basic clean . 
There is also the matter of your time and sweat. And picking up the equipment will take at LEAST 30 minutes, even if you live close by. 
Then, there is the cleaning and emptying and refilling the water which is probably 30 minutes a room. With 5 rooms and a hallway it will take about 4 hours before you can Sit back and relax.
 If you make £7.50 an hour (minimum wage) That’s £30, and the £54.97 you already paid out. Grand total = £94.97  What a great deal !!  We do full House’s from £95
Barnsley carpet and upholstery cleaners will clean rooms from £35 Plus discounts for any other rooms booked at the same time , and you get to lay back and watch someone else do the work.

Rapid re-soiling caused by Rug Dr
Case Study 
Mrs Curran, Darton
“Hi  is that Barnsley carpet and upholstery cleaners, I’ve  Used a rug Dr and it looks clean , but it smells terrible and it wont go”.
On inspection Mrs Curran has done what most people do when they use the Rug Dr.
On areas that are dirtier than others, (walk ways) they wont come clean due to the process used by the Rug Dr ,So they go over it 3 ,4  5 times. 
This floods the area and the underlay .
The small vacuum motors on the Rug Dr cant extract the water that has penetrated to the carpet backing and underlay even the sub floor, it then wont dry and starts to build up with bacteria which the begins to smell .
  • we spray the carpet with  a antibacterial solution ,  and let it dwell
  • Then extract using twin vacuum carpet cleaning machine which recovers the solution and rinse’s the area.
  • We then dry the carpet with cotton pads on a rotary machine or a fan.
If  really bad flooding has occurred sometimes the carpet will need lifting, and the underlay discarding and then replaced
