Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning
Domestic & Commercial
Our technicians are professionally trained and qualified in both carpet assessment and carpet cleaning. Before cleaning your carpet they will carry out a pre-inspection and analyse the fibres of your carpets to ascertain exactly what the makeup is of each carpet. This is to ensure that the correct cleaning solution is chosen for the type of carpet fibre as each carpet fibre type has different properties and responds differently to the various types of cleaning solutions we carry.
We use only the highest quality carpet cleaning solutions and industry leading carpet cleaning equipment which means the extraction of more dirt, soiling and ensures a typical drying time of just 1- 2 hours.
In addition to cleaning your carpets and upholstery we also offer the following services:
- Protection – We can apply a protectant after the carpet cleaning has been carried out to help guard against future spills and stains, this is an invisible layer that will not change the look or feel of your carpet.
- Deodorisation – We can add a deodoriser when carrying out the carpet cleaning ensuring the carpet is left both clean and fresh smelling.
- Anti-Allergy Treatment – This is a treatment which helps with allergies and kills dust-mites.
- Anti-static Treatment - Static build up is created by friction between carpet fibres and other moving objects such as people's shoes or electric field currents from equipment such as computers. Most commonly static discharge can be found in office environments where staff can experience shocks when touching objects such as doors and filling cabinets.
- Carpets with nylon fibres in them, left untreated can interfere with the operation of electronic equipment and computer terminals.
How Often Should I have my carpets cleaned?
To ensure that your carpets stay in good condition and last longer, we recommend that your carpets are cleaned each year.
People often make the mistake of thinking because their carpets look dull and dirty the time has come to change them. This is often not the case and we are able to restore your carpets by professionally cleaning them.
Carpets are like any other fabric over time will become soiled, duller in colour and can start to have a musty odour.
We can professionally clean your carpets to extract the dirt, freshen the carpets and remove those odours.
