Care Home Carpet Cleaning Exceeds Expectations

Updated: Mar 28, 2021

Orncare appoint Traffik to conduct biannual restoration carpet clean


The Old Rectory Residential and Nursing Home in Grappenhall opened in 1988 and is an independent family-run business operated by Orncare.

Orncare provide holistic care sensitive to the needs of each resident. The care team promote a family-approach and are happy, comfortable and well-supported to provide a professional level of care to each of the 38 residents. The majority of the care team (most of whom are local) have been part of The Old Rectory family for more than five years.

Carpet Cleaning Consultation

Traffik provide carpet cleaning 'aftercare' to ‘danfloor UK Ltd’, a leading specialist in the commercial carpet sector. As the preferred carpet cleaning 'aftercare' partner, Traffik were consulted via ‘danfloor’ to liaise with the team at The Old Rectory to provide carpet cleaning and maintenance support.

‘danfloor’ carpets are perfect for this type of installation and respond well to cleaning and maintenance. Traditional carpet cleaning can leave carpets wet, requiring forced drying and subject to black marks from footfall and wheeled traffic, where Traffik use the latest ultra low moisture technology, leaving carpet dry when finished, without forced air drying. The Old Rectory have their own in-house housekeeping team who have a schedule for carpet maintenance and will use Traffik for periodic deep cleans as part of the duty of care programme.

Traffik were delighted to deliver a restoration clean at The Old Rectory to include corridor areas and 20 bedrooms (a total area of approximately 400m2).

The Restoration Carpet Clean

Traffik have ten years’ experience working with UK care home providers to provide professional carpet, hard floor and upholstery cleaning and are well-versed in the needs of the healthcare sector.

A team of three arrived on site at The Old Rectory for 10am as agreed to deliver the restoration carpet clean. Cleaning took place using the low-moisture Oztek system, which uses encapsulation to clean the carpets, finishing with ECA water to reduce the microbial loading– this complements the Bi-Ome® antimicrobial contained in the fibres of danfloor carpets. (Research and development of Toucan and Biostream ECAS technology platforms - University of the West of England 2015).

All cleaning was completed by 3pm as required. The team work in the background, quietly and professionally, understanding the operational needs of a nursing home and how best to clean without fuss, and to compliment the in house care programme.

Carpet Cleaning - Client Feedback

Once completed, Care Home Owner Elizabeth Lawrence stated:

We are really impressed today with the carpet cleaning so far, nearly all the staff have commented on how good, fast and easy it has been; not to mention how professional the guys doing it have been, so thanks. The carpets are clean, the process was quiet and the surfaces dry so no issues with black marks, forced drying and all the other things we typically associate with carpet cleaning.

Traffik combine the latest carpet cleaning technology with the Oztek system to deep clean and/or maintain carpets to a very high standard with the aim of maximising the carpet life cycle.

Our carpet cleaning programme is constantly being developed so that we deliver the highest standards at all times, says Julian Stoneman Joint MD at Traffik UK Limited. We have used all the carpet cleaning techniques available over the last 30 years, tuned our techniques and know what works best; especially in social and residential care.

Following the initial deep clean, The Old Rectory will now receive six-monthly periodic carpet cleans from Traffik designed to complement their in-house maintenance programme, thus helping to protect and optimise the performance of their danfloor carpet.
