Why Us

Why Property Services Unlimited For Specialist Carpet Cleaning

At Property Services Unlimited we specialise in carpet cleaning in ‘High Traffic Areas’. In our work space we have area’s that we used more than others, we call these ‘High Traffic Areas’. When working through the ‘High Traffic Area’s we need to consider Halls, Corridors, Dining, Communal Lounges and Entrances.

‘High Traffic Areas’ need to be treated commercially and our recommendations are based on the IICRC international training and as a the guidelines set by CCANZ and our partner Nationwide Company, New Zealand Facility Services Group.

In the Waikato our clients with the most ‘High Traffic Areas’ are schools. We service many schools in the Waikato and the focus is corridors and classrooms.

How We Work Together

Our operations managers have been working with us for over 10 years, and in the industry even longer.
While we have the experience, we also ensure we have the processes.

The Structure Of Carpet

Identifying Your Carpet:

  • Recently Glen Smith our Operations Manager, published his article in the INCLEAN magazine, outlining what carpet can be made out of and how to identify your carpet.
  • Glen is a wealth of knowledge, having specialised in flooring for over 10 years. He regularly writes articles for Inclean and solves flooring challenges throughout Hamilton and the Waikato.
  • There are three main types of fibres used in carpets – Protein (e.g. wool silk), Synthetic (e.g. nylon, polypropylene, acrylic) and Cellulosic (e.g. jute, cotton, sis)

Our point of view

Glen Smith – Operations Manager

  • “Knowing which chemicals to use will get the best result when cleaning your carpet. This is why you need our technicians, because we ensure that we are all qualified by IICRC and our ‘in-house’ training are the essential in achieving best results for you.”

Main Carpet Types

These are the main carpet types that we regularly deal with. Our experienced technicians, will determine what carpet type you have to get the best result possible.

psu-carpet-tufted

Tufted

  • Face yarn (the fibres you walk on)
  • Primary backing (synthetic material of which the face yarn is stitched, usually a white colour)
  • Secondary backing (usually jute) glued to primary backing
  • Tufted carpet is the common carpet we deal with. Main issue with tufted carpets is the cellulosic browning when carpets are over wet from either water damage, e.g. flood, or carpet cleaning.

psu-carpet-woven

Woven

  • Commonly known as Axminster or Wilton
  • Usually high cost carpets, multi coloured and mainly cut pile.
  • Main issue with woven carpets is shrinkage can occur when over wet

psu-carpet-needle-punched

Needle Punched

  • Usually found in automotive, marine and also sometimes used in entrance ways to school classrooms or hallways
  • Primary backing (synthetic material of which the face yarn is stitched, usually a white colour)
  • Polypropylene with no secondary backing

psu-carpet-fusion-bonded

Fusion Bonded

  • Flotex would be one of the most common of the types
  • Usually found in hospitals, Resthomes and now getting more commonly used in schools.

Methods of Carpet Cleaning

How we keep ourselves safe? – Our managers ensure that they protect the cleaning team by following these simple steps:

  • For best results we use the truck mount carpet cleaner
  • Making sure that all the pathways are clear of obstacles, like furniture or rubbish, so no accidents like tripping or falling will occur.
  • Using appropriate tools, making sure that equipment is electrically tested, hoses in good working order
  • Power points are a ‘hot point’, cords can be located anywhere in the building, ceilings, floors, walls and surfaces. These areas are easily exposed and can so easily cause so much harm. Wires are another factor when working in this environment
  • In the cleaning industry we are exposed to many chemicals. So we know what to do when chemicals containers are too heavy or badly labelled. Our chemicals are used sparingly. We work hard to minimise harmful chemicals as not only can they be
