Carpet cleaning | Upholstery cleaning | FAQ
To get the longest possible wear out of your carpets they should be cleaned regularly. I would recommend cleaning every 12 months or more regularly if the carpet is very soiled through heavy usage particularly in high traffic areas of your home or office.
Did you know ...
I can move the majority of furniture such as tables, chairs, sofas etc. Larger items such as beds, wardrobes, etc can be moved by request. I do not move china displays, entertainment systems, pianos or other valuable items.

Some supermarket carpet cleaning products contain foaming and bleaching agents which remain in the carpet after use.
This can lead to the original spot getting larger and larger as the residue acts as a magnet for surrounding soiling.
If left in the carpet for prolonged periods of time these products may lead to a lightening of the affected area and in some dramatic cases may change the colour of the carpet completely. Effective carpet cleaning will be able to flush most if not all of the product away but it may have already had a detrimental affect on the carpet.

How often should I have my carpets cleaned?
Will hot water extraction damage my carpet?
No. Hot water extraction is the method recommended by most leading carpet manufacturers. It is considered to be the best method of removing soiling and other contaminants from the carpet. However, there are a very small number of carpets that do require cleaning with a very low moisture system. Should this be the case I would be happy to advise as to the best cleaning solution to use.
Do you move furniture?
Will all stains and marks be removed when I have my carpet or upholstery cleaned?
Anything that has adhered to the carpet such as food, mud, grease etc will be removed during the cleaning process. Success at removing stains will depend on a number of circumstances. I carry a large range of stain removal solutions and in most cases can greatly improve on the current situation. For more information, please look at the spot and stain removal page in our services section.
Does anti-stain protection make a difference?
Yes. The stain protection coats every fibre with an invisible protective layer which does not affect the appearance, colour or feel of the fabric.This protection helps to prevent the fabric from absorbing stains and will cause spilled liquid to pool on the fabric allowing time to blot the stain. Fabrics that have been treated with anti-stain protection may also be easier to clean and allow a higher success rate when professionally removing stains.
Will cleaning affect the anti-stain protection applied to my carpets or upholstery?
No. It is not necessary to re-apply the stain-resist treatment after every cleaning service as the solutions I use do not reduce its effectiveness.
However, any anti stain treatment will reduce over time and I would recommend having it re-applied every 2nd or 3rd clean depending on the amount of usage the carpet or upholstery gets.
