Gary recently undertook a call from a customer in Aylesford regarding the damage caused to his carpet by his pet hamster, “Erica”.

She took great delight in munching her way through two big holes on the carpet whilst the owner was cooking dinner!

He said that he looked at the hamster with swollen pouches and had to pat her on the back to release the carpet fibres she had swallowed!!

After a visit from Gary we were able to repair the damage with a spare piece of carpet the customer had available and blend this in to the existing carpet.

The results are much better than they were and the customer said “we had done a great job and Erica was also impressed with our handy work!”

Here are a couple of pictures of the pre damage, result and of course little Erica.

160404aThe aim of cleaning a carpet professionally is twofold.  Firstly, we must ensure that everything  is clean, but also to leave the cleaned item as dry as possible in order to achieve customer satisfaction with minimum inconvenience.

A few carpet cleaners may even say that quick drying times are more important than the cleaning.  Due to this, some operators of HWE (portable and truck-mount) equipment are trying to clean carpets with one pass of the wand so that the carpet dries very quickly.

The problem with this is that although some of the soiling will be evident when looking at the carpet, much of the dirt and soiling would have worked its way much deeper into the carpet fibres.  Just with one pass of the wand, it will take the top level of soil away giving the appearance that the carpet is clean but the soiling in between the fibres will be left behind.  If you are lucky and the carpet dries without any soiling then some would say as the carpet looks clean it MUST BE clean.

The fact remains that quick drying only merely enhances the carpet appearance but for a long lasting improvement and also improving healthy indoor air quality, it is necessary to remove the soiling deep in the carpet fibres themselves.

160314bNorth Star believe in working closely in the community and particularly in wanting to help the younger generation achieve their goals and dreams.

Just recently, their daughter Madison, who is playing her first debut season for the 1st team has signed for a 4 year scholarship with Upper Iowa University (NCAA Division II) to pursue her football career and degree in Phycology and Spanish.

It has been worth the while travelling up and down the country and sending her on tournaments throughout Europe. The next forthcoming one will be in Barcelona for a week!

Read all about Maddie’s journey at:- https://glfc2013.wordpress.com/2016/02/27/gills-academy-youngster-shines-in-debut-season/

As you can appreciate Mum and Dad are immensely proud and also slightly anxious! There is no doubt that Gary and Karen will be taking a well long deserved break later in the summer.

We will of course continue to support the Gillingham Ladies even after Maddie’s departure, as we have got to know a many of the ladies and their families.  It will be great if we could watch the ladies progress and move up to the premier division.

The next three home games North Star will be attending start on Sunday, 13th March against Luton and then the two consecutive Sundays thereafter.  We urge people who have never watched womens’ football to come down and show your support at Chatham Town FC – you will not be disappointed!  £3 Entry and under 16’s are free.
