Stephen Parkin, owner of SP Carpet and upholstery care
Here at SP Carpet and upholstery care we have over 31 years professional experience in cleaning. Professional cleaning: Why we use greener and safer products.

I have been in the cleaning trade for over 31 years. First, working for a small independent company and then working for a large well known carpet and upholstery cleaning franchise for over 12 years where I became manager of the Nottingham and Derby branch.

When I decided to form my own company, I needed to review the cleaning processes and the chemicals used. I felt I no longer wanted to use the potentially harmful chemicals used in the cleaning industry on a day to day basis, so I began to look for alternatives. First of all, I cut down on the amount of petroleum based products I used and altered the way I cleaned many soft furnishings. I then began to source and test naturally derived cleaning solutions and solutions made from food grade materials. First, I was sceptical about the effectiveness of these greener/safer cleaning agents probably because I have always used chemical based products and have been happy with the results obtained.

I started to test micro splitters and natural colloidal cleaning products for our carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning services. Microsplitters are derived from food industry by-products. They work by splitting the bond between fibres and the soiling particles at a molecular level allowing the dirt to be removed easily from the fibres, these work particularly well on natural fibres like wool and cotton.

Micro Splitters:

  • No bleaches
  • No enzymes
  • No surfactants
  • No solvents
  • Non hazardous
  • Odour-free
  • Can be rinsed with fresh water only
  • Safe for children and pets

Natural colloidal cleaning solutions

Derived from natural sustainable sources, work by breaking down stains and soiling at a molecular level, holding the dirt particles in a water based suspension, the soiling is then flushed away with high power cleaning equipment leaving carpets and upholstery fresh and clean with out leaving harsh chemical residues.

Non-toxic, as proven by independent toxicology tests. Enzyme-free. Naturally occurring bacteria use colloidal dispersion to biodegrade. A biodegradable degreaser. Leaves no residues Derived from sustainable plant based sources Suitable for allergy sufferers Safe for people and pets Safe for all environments


Microsplitters are derived from food processing by-products they are made from food grade phosphates and contain no harmful chemicals, enzymes, detergents, soaps or petroleum solvents and leave no chemical residues on your carpets, They work by splitting the dirt particles into smaller particles allowing removal from fibres easier and allowing water to flush the dirt particles off the fibres, Making cleaning safer for you, your home and the environment.
