Its been another busy week in the carpet and upholstery cleaning world and here is how it went.Monday morning I check all the oil levels on both the van and the truckmount and type in the first destination on the sat nav 77 berry st North Sydney a very popular site for KP’s with many units in this building.We attend here at least twice a month for move outs.The time is 750 am and pull up outside the building unload the gear and sign in to the building security.The unit I am cleaning is on the 18th floor and is empty.I proceed to start vacuuming and admire the views of the harbour bridge and the city,soon after this I apply the carpet pre spray and leave it to dwell.When this is done I fill up the steam cleaner with hot water set up and finish the steam cleaning of the carpet in the unit.Job number one done and time to grab a chicken wrap from a favourite cafe of mine in crows nest.
My next job is close by in Chatswood another empty studio apartment,this takes not too long to clean and I am finished in forty minutes.I now head down to the beachside suburb of Dee Why to clean five seats of upholstery,When I arrive I find no lifts and the unit is on the top floor so dragging up a 56kg machine up six flights of stairs really is not fun. I get started and clean the three seater first,the only downside to cleaning upholstery is it can give you back ache.
Job done and another happy customer and time for a late lunch at Dee Why beach to take in the surf.Just one more job to go before I have to clean a pubs carpet later in the night.The next job is in Clontarf and only one room with baby sick so a nice quick job and time to go home and rest up before the pub job.
It is 9 pm and time to head back to North Sydney to the Alberts tavern on Walker st.We clean this pub every two weeks and always have a lot of chewing gum to remove from the carpets.First off I hit all the gum spots with a gel that dissolves the gum.Once this is done I set up the truck mount and connect all the hoses and pre spray the carpets with detergent.Now I get going and steam clean the carpets and melt away all the chewing gum shortly after an hour I have finished,so time to pack up head home and get some shut eye before the next day.
Tuesday mid morning and I am off to Surry Hills to pick up some rugs to be cleaned at our factory.
