Flooded Carpet Perth

Flooded Carpet – What To Do In A Water Damage Emergency

No one expects to wake up to or arrive home to flooded carpet and your home inundated with water, but it does happen and unfortunately way to often.  In the event that this happens to your home or business please call ProtectorClean’s 24 hour water damage restoration service, we will assist you in getting back to normal as soon as possible. 

Contact Us 08 6555 7743 or 0437 537 746 

Flooded carpet can result from several different sources including burst pipes, a leaking roof, blocked gutters, breaking fish tanks or water beds, or something as simple as an overflowing bathtub or sink.  When your home or business is flooded it is important to act quickly and have it dried out and returned to its normal condition as soon as possible.

The quicker the response the greater the chance of reducing or restricting further damage.  If left for too long, not only will the flooded carpets need replacing but structural damage to walls, floor boards and kitchen units may occur.  There is also the risk of mould and bacteria starting to grow!  As you can see, a quick response to treating flooded carpet is critical in reducing further damage and repair costs.

Tile and Grout Cleaning Joondalup

The Best Tile and Grout Cleaning Joondalup

Tile and grout cleaning Joondalup.  Do you want your tile and grout floors restored back to looking new again?  Give ProtectorClean Perth a call to discuss your needs.  

We are a local cleaning and restoration business based in Duncraig and frequently service Joondalup and Perth northern suburbs.  ProtectorClean was established in 2013 by owner and operator Kerrin Sampson with a commitment to deliver the best results and customer service first time and every time!  

Tile and Grout Cleaning Joondalup, What We Do?

Tile and grout cleaning Joondalup

Heavy duty cleaning of ceramic tile and grout

Our heavy duty tile and grout cleaning service is one of the best in Perth and Joondalup!  Why is this so?  Our results and customer testimonials speak for themselves!  Please check out our ‘Before & After’ photos and ‘Customer Testimonials’.  Over the past few years we have restored hundreds of dirty and weary tile and grout floors back to pristine condition, and this has not been by chance but rather by using ‘best practice’ cleaning procedures and processes on each and every tile and grout cleaning service. These include:

  • Tile identification.  Tiles generally range from ceramic, porcelain, terracotta to natural stone and it is very important to identify the tile correctly so that they are not damaged during the cleaning process and we know the correct cleaning procedure to follow for that particular type of tile.
  • Using the correct chemicals.  Many cleaning businesses only use one type of cleaning chemical to clean tile and grout.  The main reason for this is due to a lack of tile and chemistry knowledge on the part of the operator.  At ProtectorClean we know tiles and we know cleaning chemistry.  We use several types of quality tile and grout cleaning chemicals and problem solvers to ensure that the very best results are achieved on every tile and grout cleaning job.
  • Test before cleaning.  This is a critical step in the tile and grout cleaning process.  Testing the tile and grout before doing the full clean enables us to choose the best compatible chemical for the job as well as enabling us to see what the end cleaning result will look like before going any further. 
  • Using the best commercial grade equipment.  At ProtectorClean we only use the best commercial grade tile and grout cleaning machines including powerful truck-mounted pressure machines and scrubbers.  Our truck-mount machine delivers extremely hot water and the correct pressure to ensure optimal cleaning power.
  • Attention to detail.  Our attention to detail is first class.  This includes cleaning right up close to skirting boards, spot cleaning problem areas and ensuring no dirt and grime is left behind during the clean.
  • Safeguarding surrounding property and furnishing.  We have heard many horror stories about chemical solutions being over-sprayed on and staining walls, etching stainless steel fridges and dishwashers, discolouring carpets and causing swelling to skirting boards.  At ProtectorClean we pay particular attention to protecting your property and valuable furnishings.  Our safeguards include: corner guards to protect walls from hoses, drop-sheets to protect adjoining flooring such as carpet and timber, carefully mopping on our chemical solutions instead of spraying them on, and protecting your stainless steel appliances with plastic film if needed.

The Pros and Cons of Pressure Cleaning and Sealing Concrete Surfaces and Paving

Pressure Cleaning and Sealing Driveways, Paving, Exposed Aggregate, Liquid Limestone and Natural Stone

What are the pros and cons of pressure cleaning and sealing your driveway, concrete surfaces and paving?  Installing new concrete surfaces or paving is a big $$ investment and therefore you want to make sure the surface is looking great for years to come.  Leading up to installation you have probably been told several times to “make sure you get them sealed”.  But why?  

Sealing Pros  

pressure cleaning and sealing

Exposed aggregate concrete driveway. Pressure cleaning & sealing.

Pressure cleaning and sealing your concrete or paving will definitely help protect these surfaces and keep them looking good for a lot longer than not having them sealed.  The main benefits of pressure cleaning and sealing include:

  • Repelling Moisture.  This reduces water damage and wear to your concrete and pavers.  Sealants may assist in reducing or eliminating problems such as efflorescence where salts rise to the surface leaving somewhat ugly deposits on the surface.
  • Stain Protection.  A quality sealer will provide good resistance protection against water and oil based contaminants including motor oil, BBQ fats and oil, food and beverage spills as well as organic staining caused by leaves, flowers and fruit.  An unsealed porous surface will stain a lot quicker and it will be a lot more difficult to remove any staining compared to a sealed surface.  In saying this though, it is important to note that the protection provided by sealants is “resistance” only which means you need to clean the contaminant off as soon as possible otherwise it may break through the sealer and stain the surface.  Sealants are not “bullet proof”.

Common outdoor surfaces that we pressure clean and seal in Perth include:

  • concrete
  • pavers / paving
  • exposed aggregate
  • liquid limestone
  • travertine
  • granite
  • natural stone
  • freostone paving

Sealing Cons  

pressure cleaning and sealing

Pressure cleaning and sealing paving in Sorrento

We have covered the benefits of having your concrete and paving sealed, but what are the drawbacks?

The two main drawbacks to having your concrete and paving sealed are 1) Regular Maintenance, and 2) Resealing.

  1.  Regular Maintenance.  The biggest myth regarding having your concrete or paving sealed is “if you get them sealed they will never get dirty again”.  This could not be more further from the truth.  A sealed concrete or paving surface will still get dirty and algae and moss will still tend to grow in damp and poorly drained areas.  To ensure the sealer works to its optimum ability it is recommended that the following maintenance schedule be followed:
    • Sweep, blow or hose off the area regularly.
    • Spot clean off any contaminants as soon as they occur.  Contaminants left on a sealed surface will slowly break through the sealant and stain the surface!  Use a neutral pH cleaning chemical.  Do not use high alkaline, acidic or solvent based chemicals as these can breakdown or damage the sealer.
    • Pressure cleaning the surface every 6 to 12 months.
  2. Resealing.  Unfortunately concrete and paving sealers do not last forever.  On average a good quality sealer will last up to 5 years.  Therefore to ensure that your sealer continues to perform it is recommended that you pressure clean and reseal / topcoat your concrete and paved areas every 3 to 4 years.  This is an additional cost you need to consider when deciding whether to seal or not to seal.

Types of Sealant  

Pressure cleaning and sealing

Newly installed travertine pavers. Clean and seal.

There are two main types of sealants.  1)  Coating type or film forming, and 2) Clear penetrating sealers.

  1. Coating Type or Film Forming Sealants protect your concrete and  pavers by blocking the harmful effects of water and other staining contaminants via an acrylic coating. This sealant type creates a hard wearing barrier on the surface and provides a fresh-looking sheen to the surface, often accentuating its colours by creating a “wet look”.  Coating type sealers are the easiest to keep clean.
  2. Clear penetrating Sealers protect your concrete and pavers by blocking the harmful effects of water and other staining contaminants via an invisible sub-surface barrier, similar to how scotchguard works on your lounge suite.  This sealant type provides your surface with a non-coating natural look and will not peel or flake.

Verdict

Fact – Pressure cleaning and sealing your outdoor hard surfaces will definitely help protect and keep your concrete and paved areas looking great for years to come.  BUT, it is just as important to realise that with a sealed surface comes responsibility… that there are ongoing maintenance and resealing requirements to consider to ensure that the sealant performs to its optimum ability year after year.

Advantages of Pressure Cleaning for Your Home

Pressure Washing For Your Home

Pressure washing, is it beneficial?  Appearances matter, whether it’s your home or office, stained and dirty driveways, paving or flooring give the impression that you’ve let things slide and that’s never a good look.

Nothing stays looking new forever. Over time it’s inevitable that your brand new driveway, paving, swimming pool surrounds or entertainment areas will become weathered. Weathering is good if you want a new building to settle into a landscape or a garden ornament to look like an antique. The same can’t be said for other hard surfaces – dingy looking paving or pool surrounds make a property look uncared for and can knock thousands off the potential value of your home.

It’s the same for commercial flooring – you want to preserve your reputation, your premises should present as well organised, clean, tidy and professional.

Four good reasons to pressure wash your home if you’re thinking of selling:

Pressure washing

Pressure cleaning liquid limestone around a swimming pool using vacuum equipment. No mess!

• Pressure cleaning, also known as pressure washing is an affordable way to improve the look and increase the value of your home.

• Curb appeal is important, pressure washing your Perth home removes stains, dirt and mildew that makes a home look unattractive.

• Save on costly exterior home repairs by keeping it clean – it deters rot and decay and can extend the life of your cladding, driveway, porch and deck.

• Protecting your driveway, paving, entertainment areas etc from dirt, mould, mildew and algae reduces the risk of slipping and falling.

 

There’s clean and there’s clean

The big advantage of the ProtectorClean pressure washing process is that it removes dirt, stains, discolouration and grime from your concrete, paving, liquid limestone and other hard surfaces, restoring their finish and improving the cleanliness and appearance of your property.

Plus our state of the art vacuum recovery system has zero to minimal run-off, so cleaning products are prevented from entering the stormwater drains and river systems, making our process significantly more environmentally friendly than others.  It is also great for pressure washing around swimming pools ensuring that the dirty waste water stays out of the pool.  The last thing you want is a clean pool surrounding but then having to spend additional time and money cleaning out the swimming pool and adding extra chemicals.  Our unique vacuum equipments prevents this from happening.

Lock in the look

Once your concrete, paving, liquid limestone or exposed aggregate surfaces are freshly pressure washed, ProtectorClean can seal the job so that your surfaces are protected from water and oil-based contaminants and to help them stay cleaner for longer. Because we use only the best quality coating and penetrating sealants you get the best and longest-lasting results.

How can ProtectorClean help?

ProtectorClean offers extensive high pressure washing services for both residential and commercial applications in Perth and surrounding areas, including:

Driveways – concrete, exposed aggregate, liquid limestone and paving

Paving – pool surrounds, alfresco areas and garden pathways

Internal concrete flooring – commercial warehouses, factories and cold-rooms

Protecting Natural Stone With A ‘Two-In-One’ Enhancing Sealer

Choosing natural stone for your flooring or feature walls is an investment and in order to protect your investment one of the most important steps to take is to have your stone sealed.  One of the best ways to protect your natural stone from staining or weathering is to treat it with a protective sealer such as a penetrating or coating sealer.

Below is a recent cleaning and sealing service we completed.  The swimming pool stone feature wall is about 5 years old and was subject to rust staining and weathering.  After we removed the rust stains a quality Enhancing Penetrating Sealer was applied to not only protect the stone for years to come but it also gave the stone a permanent enhanced or ‘wet look’ that significant improved the look of the wall.

Commercial Carpet Cleaning

Below is a photo of a recent carpet cleaning service we provided to a local sporting club in Swanbourne.  This carpet had not been cleaned for a number of years and as you can see a significant amount of dirt and soiling had built up over time.  In order to thoroughly clean the carpet a powerful steam cleaning process was required.

This process involved:

– Thorough vacuuming

– Pre-spray with a quality heavy duty carpet cleaning chemical solution

– Heavy duty scrubbing with an orbital scrubbing machine

– Hot Water Extraction (steam cleaning) using 100+ degree celsius water.  Our very powerful carpet cleaning machine ensures very quick drying times of between 3 & 5 hours!

– Spot cleaning difficult stains that could not be removed during the steam cleaning process

– Grooming or raking the carpet to re-align the fibres

Perth pressure washing and sealing exposed aggregate driveway

Below is a ‘before & after’ photo of a recent Perth pressure washing and sealing service that we completed on an exposed aggregate driveway.  The driveway which was originally sealed 5 years ago was in desperate need of a chemical wash and high pressure clean before being resealed again.

The chemical wash and 3,500 psi pressure clean (using our unique vacuum recovery equipment) made the surface look near new again to the delight of our customers.  The freshly pressure cleaned exposed aggregate driveway was then sealed with a quality high-gloss clear coating sealant.Perth Pressure Washing

The main reason to have your concrete or paving pressure cleaned and sealed is to help protect the surface from chemicals, oils, dirt and other contaminants as well as protecting it from weathering and deteriorating from our harsh Aussie climate.

It is important to note that although concrete and paving sealers provide a high level of protection or resistance to chemicals, oils and other contaminants, they are not ‘bullet proof’ and forever lasting.  At ProtectorClean we recommend that once a surface has been sealed, a routine maintenance program be followed to ensure that the sealer performs to its optimum ability year in, year out.

Exposed aggregate concrete is not the hard surface we pressure clean and seal.  Other surfaces include:  paving, liquid limestone, concrete and natural stone such as travertine and granite.

Tips to keep your sealed surface cleaner for longer include:

  1. Regularly sweep and hose off the sealed concrete or paving
  2. Spot clean contaminants from the surface as soon as possible.  Only use a neutral pH cleaning solution as hash alkaline and acid cleaners may damage or weaken the sealer
  3. Lightly pressure clean the sealed surface at least once a year
  4. Reseal the concrete or pavers every 3 to 5 years

At ProtectorClean we only use quality sealer products.  They include:

  1. Clear Penetrating Sealers for a natural look and feel. (Water based and solvent based)
  2. Clear Coating / Topical Sealers for a low sheen or gloss look and feel. (Water based and solvent based)

As part of our Perth pressure washing service we use specialist vacuum equipment which enables us to capture the majority of the waste water as we pressure clean.  The advantage of this is that it prevents the dirty waste water from flowing into your clean swimming pool or your neighbours yard!  We also find that this vacuum process results in a superior clean as at the end of the job there is no waste water left lying around.

If you would like to know more about our Perth pressure washing and sealing service, please feel free to call us or email us.

Stripping and re-sealing exposed aggregate concrete

In order to maintain a good appearance and functionality, concrete surfaces that have been sealed with a coating type sealer should be pressure cleaned and re-coated every 12 to 18 months.  Unfortunately, before you know it, it is 3 to 5 years later and the sealed concrete surface is looking very stained, yellowed and dirty.  In these instances there is a good chance that the sealer is permanently impregnated with staining and will need to be completely stripped and then resealed..a timely and costly process.  Below is an example of a sealed exposed aggregate concrete surface that needed stripping and then re-sealing.  Notice all the stains and dirt that are lodged in the sealer prior to stripping, the majority of which were able to be removed during the stripping process.

Pressure cleaning around pools and poorly drained areas using vacuum technology

One of the main problems with pressure cleaning around pools or in poorly drained areas is where does the waste water escape to?  What normally happens is you end up with very clean pavers but with your pool now looking worse for wear, full of muddy water and debris… a costly and timely problem to fix.  At ProtectorClean we use purpose built vacuum equipment that attaches to our pressure cleaning machine and sucks up the waste water as we clean.  This means that not only will you have very clean paving but your pool or other poorly drained areas will not be left full of muddy waste water.  Another benefit is the waste water collected by us can be used to water your lawns and gardens instead of going down the drain. The below photos are examples of surfaces cleaned by us using our pressure cleaning vacuum equipment.

Have you tried restoring your tiles before replacing them?

The tiles below are set in a communal laundry and bathroom and over the years have succumbed to severe soil build up and staining.  Our customer who was renovating the building wanted to know if the tile and grout could be restored to a satisfactory level instead of having them replaced. Our test clean results came up favourable and we proceeded to carry out a heavy duty tile and grout cleaning and stripping procedure.  The results were quite amazing and having the tile and grout cleaned and restored instead of having them replaced ended up saving our customer a lot of time and money.

Recently we were asked to clean and seal a bathroom’s tile and grout prior to the new owners moving in to their new home.  To do this the tile and grout had to be thoroughly cleaned or as we in the industry say it required “restoration cleaning”.  So, what exactly is tile grout restoration cleaning?

Tile grout restoration cleaning can best be described as a very deep and thorough cleaning process with an objective of returning the tile and grout to as near new a condition as possible.  The restoration cleaning process generally involves using:

– Specialist tile and grout cleaning chemicals including alkaline, acidic and other problem solving chemical solutions.

– Heat.  Very hot water significantly improves cleaning power.

– Agitation or scrubbing the chemical solution into the tile and grout to help dislodge and remove all the grime, oil and dirt.

– Dwell time.  Letting the chemical solution sit long enough on the tile and grout for it to penetrate and dislodge, remove and suspend all the dirt and grime, and

– Commercial grade tile and grout cleaning equipment. e.g. scrubbing machines and high pressure, hot water extraction (HWE) machines to speed up the cleaning process as well as to improve the cleaning results.

As the old adage goes, a picture is worth a thousand words…below are several before, during and after photos of this bathroom restoration tile and grout cleaning service.
