Frequently Asked Questions


Q. How often should I have my carpets cleaned?

A. Most manufacturers recommend that carpets are professionally cleaned by a qualified technician every 12-18 months. Carpets should be cleaned on a regular basis and before they become heavily soiled. Allowing soil to build up will significantly reduce the life of a carpet.

Q. I think I can clean my soft furnishings myself, is this recommended?

A. It is highly recommended that a professional cleaner is used. There are many items available to the public that are advertised for carpet and upholstery cleaning. However, along with these come many risks and the potential of causing irreversible damage. We have the correct training and knowledge, along with access to professional products, to ensure that a correct and safe job is carried out and the best possible results are achieved.

Q. Will my carpets re-soil quicker following cleaning?

A. Today’s chemicals and detergents are manufactured to the highest specifications for quality and effectiveness. Professional cleaners will only use detergents designed for the removal of soil from carpets and upholstery and, when used correctly, these will not lead to any rapid re-soiling. Detergents that are not designed for use on carpets and upholstery may cause re-soiling problems.

Q. I have children/pets, will they be affected by cleaning processes/chemicals?

A. Health and safety is of paramount importance in the cleaning industry. Professional cleaning solutions are tested for their effects on the environment and occupants of areas in which they will be used. We will also ensure that the relevant safety procedures are followed during the cleaning process. It is recommended that children and pets stay off of a damp carpet until it is completely dry, this will help prevent slip and fall hazards as well as tracking in fresh soil.

Q. How long will my carpet or furniture take to dry and how soon will it be back in use?

A. Drying time depends on many conditions, including how soiled the item was, weather conditions, indoor atmosphere. However, in most normal cases, carpets and soft furnishings should be dry within 1-3 hours.

Q. Will all the stains come out?

A. No guarantee can be made that any particular stain will be removed. Some stains permanently damage the carpet fibres and no amount of specialist cleaning will reverse this.. If you have a stain you are concerned about, discuss it with us beforehand and we will be happy to advise.

Q. Will professional cleaning affect the protector on my carpet/will it need to be re-applied afterwards?

A. It is important to note that protector will wear off of any carpet that is in use. Walking, vacuuming, general wear and cleaning will all have an effect on this. Carpet protectors shield the fibres, they are designed to prevent spillages, dropped items and other general wear affecting the carpet directly. However, in doing so it will lose some of its effectiveness and should be re-applied on a regular basis to ensure continued protection.

Q. Do I have to move furniture?

A. In most cases we will be happy to move furniture, But we do advise that any small, valuable or breakable items are removed prior to our visit. This makes it easier for us to commence the cleaning and also insures that the customers valuables are kept safe.
