Over the years we have cleaned many different kinds of businesses, industrial properties and houses. One that we have recently carried out is church carpet cleaning. Church carpets are intriguing because there are typically few stains on the carpet at all. Also compared to other facilities they are typically rather clean. There will always be some soiling but Church carpets are not generally in a bad condition.
The carpet in churches do need to be professionally cleaned frequently much like any carpet. Naturally it is the soil in a carpet that wears it prematurely. Eliminating this soil will extend the life of the carpet and keep it looking fresh and new. We suggest yearly cleaning for these types of properties. Churches will typically have substantial foot traffic. Also this traffic will be coming straight in from outdoors bringing soiling in. Eliminating this soil is important for the life of the carpet and to keep it looking good.
The Rancho Cucamonga carpet pictured here cleaned up actually well. Firstly, the carpet remained in good condition. Also this was the not the first time we had actually cleaned it. The carpet has been cleaned each year since being laid.
Church carpet cleaning and wax
Churches often do have one kind of stain that does not occur on many other carpets. Candle light wax happens in the home but wax is on lots of Church carpets.
We have actually seen lots of people make a horrible mistake with attempting to eliminate wax from their carpet. The common repair for this was an iron and some brown paper. The problem with this is that some carpet fibers such as Polypropylene have a very very low melting temperature level of 160 ° C. Nylon carpet fibers are not much better at 220 ° C. So this is the big issue with utilizing an iron on your carpet.
According to wiki: "Ironing is the use of a heated tool (an iron) to get rid of wrinkles from material. The heating is typically done to a temperature level of 180-- 220 ° Celsius , depending on the fabric. Ironing works by loosening up the bonds between the long-chain polymer molecules in the fibers of the material."
The carpet fiber might well melt extremely quickly. Polypropylene melts extremely easy. I have actually seen many iron blister marks where the iron has actually merely been knocked off the ironing board melting the fiber right away. So my recommendation is to not use an iron on your carpet under any situation. Due to the low melting temperature level there is often no second chance.
Getting Rid Of Candle Wax
To get rid of wax, utilize a damp solvent. After using a small amount, gently scrape the wax off with a blunt knife or something comparable.
Taking ones time and being gentle should ensure an excellent result. Colored candle wax can be a genuine issue to eliminate. This color is a dye. And frequently the dye stain will remain, re-coloring the fiber. This stain might well be long-term.
