Frequently asked questions about deep cleaning
Doing a professional deep clean is often considered a seasonal clean, however, to maintain a hygienic and maintained environment deep cleaning should be a regular occurrence. Commercial Deep cleaning is different from regular cleaning because it reaches the deep grime and soiling that would not be covered in a regular clean. Additionally, it covers tasks which are beyond a regular cleaning cycle. At Total Clean, we liaise closely with our clients to tailor deep cleans around the needs of the facility we are cleaning.
Our experienced cleaners are trained to the highest standards to carry deep cleans in any business sector.
For example, a school might book in a deep clean at any time or during the summer holidays to fully clean their carpets and hard floors, ensure all their IT equipment is hygienically clean, all work surfaces, washrooms, kitchen, touch points and all the doors and windows are contamination free.
Alternatively, a medical facility might book us for a deep clean prior to a CQC visit or as ongoing regular maintenance, to ensure that their premises meet the required rigorous standards and stand up to the current coronavirus demands for a safe working facility.

Deep cleaning can be required for a number of reasons; In a busy office environment, regular deep cleaning not only maintains high levels of hygiene, but it also helps maintain and prolong the new appearance of things like office furniture, IT equipment, surfaces, carpets, hard floors and kitchen equipment amongst others, therefore it is recommended to deep clean an office regularly, such as monthly or quarterly. In a high traffic location, such as a hospital, hygiene standards can decline quickly, so deep cleaning should be practised regularly. Weekly deep cleans are common, but deep cleans are also required immediately should there be an outbreak of an infection, such as with the Coronavirus pandemic.

We recommend a 5 step program to deep clean carpets:
Assess your carpet. Check to see what type of fibre the carpet is made from and what the construction of it is. This will determine which cleaning method and solution will give the optimum clean. Check for stains and other problems which require treatment.
Thoroughly vacuum the carpet using a high powered commercial grade vacuum cleaner. The soil in a carpet is dry so it is important to remove as much of this as possible before any other cleaning begins, otherwise, the treatments will sit on top of the dry soiling.
Treat spots or stains with the appropriate spotting and stain removing solution. The stain may need steam cleaning if it is hard soiling.
A carpet cleaning pre-treatment can be applied to the carpet. The solution will break the bond between the soil and the fibres of the carpet. There are many different types of carpet pre-treatment depending on the type of soils in the carpet. For example, a dirty carpet in a retail store will require a different cleaning solution to a fine oriental rug in an office.
The cleaning solution is worked into the carpet fibres with special machinery. This final process also restores the pile of the carpet lifting any flattened areas.
