The Importance of Commercial Carpet Cleaning Maintenance in High Traffic Venues


Carpet Cleaning Job in Dublin, National Concert Hall - Aqua Dry

National Concert Hall – Aqua-Dry Carpet Cleaning van

Keeping the same furniture and carpets for decades

As you may know, we have been cleaning carpets and performing upholstery cleaning at the National Concert Hall for over ten years now. It’s always a pleasure for us to be in the National Concert Hall, whether for carpet cleaning or to enjoy some top class singing.

In all those years, the carpets and upholstery, chairs and sofas have not been replaced. When you take into account the huge number of people that attend events at the Concert Hall annually, that is a remarkable saving and excellent value for money on their original investment.

Tattersalls Commercial Carpet Cleaning and Upholstery Cleaning

For almost twenty years now, we have cleaned carpets, sofas, dining chairs and rugs in Tattersalls. Tattersalls is one of the leading livestock agents in the world. Apart from the many selling events they host each year, they also cater for weddings and other events.

Similarly to the Concert Hall, the carpets, upholstery and rugs in Tattersalls have not needed to be replaced in all that time.

How have these high-traffic venues managed to avoid replacing their furnishings for so long?

Both organisations have a very good maintenance programme in place. From new, all the furnishings had a protector applied like Scotchgard. This has helped to stop spillages becoming stains and has improved subsequent cleaning results. That’s the first part.

Secondly, both the Concert Hall and Tattersalls deal with spillages and stains in a very efficient manner. Spillages are removed quickly and at least every 6 months, the carpets get a full hot water extraction clean. Periodically for the rest of the year, a spot removal programme is in place.

The cost of replacing the carpets, upholstery and rugs in these organisations would be very high indeed. For over 10 and 20 years respectively, this cost has been avoided by good maintenance.

How dabbing might save your Christmas

What is the worst thing that can happen to your lovely new suite of furniture? Or your new carpets or rug over the Christmas period? Well there are many candidates for ruining your Christmas even for a short period of time. Among them are red wine, tea or coffee spillages; make-up stains; and yes, even someone getting sick. So what advice can we give you?

Upholstery and Carpet Cleaning: Please don’t panic!

Stay calm would be our first piece of advice. Your carpets, upholstery or rugs won’t benefit from a frenzied attempt at cleaning up. Ask yourself the following question:

Is it liquid or solid or a combination?

A really good idea and one we always share with our customers is to keep a white absorbent towel where you can easily locate it when an accident happens. One tip is to leave a towel underneath a cushion of your sofa so that you can act quickly in the event of an accident.

This will help you to quickly deal with the spillage and help stop it becoming a permanent stain. Use your towel to dab up the liquid. Do not rub as this can distort the fibres of your suite or carpets. Stay calm and be patient. With careful dabbing you will remove almost all of the spillage.

If there is a solid to be dealt with e.g. vomit, use a knife or a spatula to remove the solids and then proceed with the blotting process.

Work from the outside of the spillage inwards, and please DO NOT rub or scrub the spillage.

Having done the best you can, if you still have a residue of the spillage that you cannot remove, please stop.


By going under your sink and using products not designed or removing the spillage, you may make removal of the stain impossible. Even if you have to leave the spillage over a few days at Christmas, it is possible that a professional carpet cleaning company will be able to remove it if all you have done is carry out these simple instructions.

In brief

Don’t panic, be prepared (towel where you can find it), dab, dab, dab, do not rub, don’t use any products not designed for the job and of course…have a great Christmas!!
