Carpet and upholstery cleaning, what method ?
It is a good idea to have your carpet and upholstery professionally cleaned at least once a year, we use Hot water extraction, commonly called steam cleaning, this the most popular method used by professional carpet cleaners in the UK.
Other methods exist for cleaning carpets and i have used those methods over the years, but steam cleaning is still considered to be the most effective.
Stain and spills
These happen all the time but if you can clean them up quickly, before they dry, it may not become a big problem, care must be taken to ensure that you do not make the stain worse, many supermarket products can actually set the stain, or cause a bleaching effect that will be permanent. If you are unsure what to do please feel free to call me and i can discuss with you the best method of removal, or how to contain the problem until i can attend to attempt removal.
If you have pets, carpet stains are pretty much unavoidable and if you have cats or dogs, odour may also be a problem, carpet can be a very expensive investment in your home, having them professionally cleaned can help avoid these problems.
Dirt causes wear and damage to the fibres, frequent vacuuming is vital in preventing the build up of soiling and extending the life of your carpet.
New carpet smell
That new carpet smell is caused by vapours from the adhesive used to attach the fibres to the carpet backing, manufacturers recommend that a new carpet be ventilated with fresh air for several days before anyone moves in.
