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.
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.
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 a damp carpet until it is completely dry, this will help prevent slip and fall hazards as well as tracking in fresh soil.
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.
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.
It is important to note that protector will wear off any carpet that is in use. Walking, vacuuming, general wear and cleaning will all influence 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.
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 ensures that the customers valuables are kept safe.
