New Look Clean removing social distancing floor sticker decal glue adhesive from a carpet.
Today we were sanitise cleaning carpets at a doctors surgery in Sutton Coldfield using our antimicrobial cleaning solution.
Some of the floor social distancing stickers had been repositioned a few weeks ago and had left the sticker glue residue. This sticky residue will continue to attract dirt and go darker and darker over time making the carpet look really unsightly all over – there were a lot of stickers that had been removed! So obviously to maintain the appearance of the carpet, we removed the glue residue before commencing the sanitise carpet cleaning.
In the video below you will see us using our unique solvent paste formulae to remove the marking and residue. The reason we use a paste is because we don’t want the solvent going through the carpet fibres and into the backing. A lot of carpets have bonded backings and allowing a solvent to penetrate the backing will break down that bonding and damage the carpet.
In this case the flooring is carpet tiles that have a bitumen backing – YOU DO NOT WANT A SOLVENT GETTING TO THE BITUMEN BACKING Of CARPET TILES AND DISSOLVING IT AS THE BROKEN DOWN BITUMEN WILL WICK TO THE TOP OF THE CARPET AND LEAVE YOU WITH A LOVELY BLACK MARK ON THE TOP THAT YOU WON’T BE ABLE TO REMOVE!
This is why we use our unique solvent paste and apply it indirectly using a microfibre cloth so it safely removes the glue residue. The solvent evaporates from the carpet after a short time and leaves the fibres clean and dirt/residue free!
