Local school computer room suffers water damage

School water damage causes hazard in local school computer room.

Rain water can soak and stain pretty much anything it comes into contact with. Unfortunately, lots of schools still have mobile buildings on their grounds which have flat roofs- which are prone to leaking. Instead of using valuable School budget to replace the carpet completely one local school looked into hiring us to come out and clean it for them. Recently, we were asked to clean and restore classroom H1 at King Edwards High School in Lichfield.

This was due to water damage following a flat roof that had leaked and caused rain water damage throughout the whole class room. This class room was a computer room which could have been damaging to the expensive equipment in there.  Water and electricals don’t mix very well, which is why we were keen to get in there and complete the job as quickly as possible in order to get the children back into the class room and learning once again.

A natural solution to cleaning

The carpet was comprehensively cleaned and fully restored. Comprehensive cleaning includes our carpet cleaners using ‘The Natural’, which consists of a patented hot water cleaning solution that uses the power of carbonation to lift dirt to the surface where our powerful extraction tools whisk away the dirt – leaving carpets clean, deep below the surface.

The PowerHead uses vortex suction to remove water and dirt for maximum cleaning effectiveness. The experts agree – the Chem-Dry system works hard to deep clean carpets without leaving dirt-attracting residues. In fact, the Carpet & Rug Institute has awarded Chem-Dry’s hot carbonating extraction process its Seal of Approval.

This natural approach is especially important within Schools. This is due to the fact that some children may have respiratory problems or allergies that can be set off by harsher substances that other carpet cleaners use. Even if the children don’t have these problems, they are still growing and need to be kept as safe as possible when cleaning substances are around.

As well as the carpets being cleaned we also offer services including curtain and chair (upholstery) cleaning and even more carpets for this school and many other schools like this to make sure that the building is the most hygienic and at the best possible standard for your children to learn in.

Competition time

As well as cleaning King Edwards carpets, every year for six years, Cathedral Chem-Dry chooses a local school near their business in Lichfield to take part in a competition to design products and marketing materials for their carpet cleaning business.

The competition includes designs for creating notepads, reminder cards, thank you cards and review / testimonial cards. The children are excited to take part in this fun activity and gain a taster of what is required for running a business including marketing, advertising, graphic design and printing.

The winning design then goes to print and is used by Cathedral Chem-Dry in the day-to-day running of their carpet cleaning business in the community, with many customers appreciating these colourful and meaningful notepads and cards designed by students in their local schools. You can see the hard work each student puts into these fantastic designs in the Cathedral Chem-Dry Pinterest Page.
