I provide a comprehensive spot, stain and odour removal service using the latest solutions and equipment.

It is possible to remove the problem 90% of the time. There are some factors that make the complete removal of the stain impossible, they are:

  • The length of time the stain has been present in the fibres.
  • The strength and temperature that contaminated the fibres.
  • DIY attempts that may have been made.
Be careful when attempting to tackle a stain yourself using off the shelf products. Many of these products claim to solve all stains, but this is impossible since different types of fabric have their own vulnerabilities and cleaning requirements. In fact, using supermarket products can actually make the problem worse by setting the stain, as they can cause a bleaching effect in the fabric. In some cases, the cleaning products themselves can even cause further staining. In any case, don’t panic, if in any doubt, please feel free to speak with me and I will gladly advise you on the best method of DIY removal or how to contain the problem until I can deal with it personally.

Tackling all spills, stains and marks

We know that however hard you may try, mishaps, spills and accidents can happen and spots and stains are somewhat inevitable. But don’t worry, a spill doesn’t have to leave a mark in the long run. I’ve found I can get fantastic results for clients, sometimes when they were on the verge of completely replacing the carpet. The build up of a number of smaller accidents can also result in a marked and stained carpet that needs the attention of professional cleaning. I have many years of experience providing mark and stain removal services. Over this time I have developed the skills and expertise needed to tackle a wide variety of stubborn marks. Don’t worry if you’re not sure what has caused the stain, or if you have several different marks that won’t go away, I can identify the best treatment and deal with it all the same day. Feel free to send an image or description of the problem and I may be able to identify it remotely. Spot & stain removal can also be incorporated into our upholstery cleaning service, if your furniture could benefit from a professional clean.

What to do after a spill

We have years of experience in the removal of stains and marks and although we recommend calling us as soon as a stain happens, we know this is not always possible. If you’re not sure what to do, best practise is generally to blot away any excess liquid from the affected area with something absorbent to try to lift away as much of the spill as possible. Our specialised spot removal service focuses on these unsightly marks and stains that are left behind to try and renovate your carpets as much as possible. Our spot and stain removal service is also suitable for upholstery, sofas, armchairs and some curtains too. By identifying the stain and the type of fibres in your fabric we use our years of experience to apply the best method possible. Call us today for help and advice cleaning carpet stains in your home or workplace in Southend and across Essex, or contact us to book your cleaning service today.

Why is stain removal so challenging?

There are a few reasons why stain removal can be a real challenge, and why it can make life a lot easier to hire a professional.

Deep stains: Stains can get deep into the fibers of fabrics, making them difficult to really get out. When a stain isn’t treated immediately, it can become abosrbed and deeply embedded. This makes it harder to lift the stain without professional kit.

Different types of stain: Different stains are made up of different things, which can make their removal even harder. Some stains contain substances that bond with the fabric or material, making them more resistant to traditional cleaning methods. Oily or greasy stains, for exmaple from food spills, are particuarly challening and need specialised treatments to break them down.

Time: The longer a stain is untreated, the more it sets and dries into the fabric, making it harder to remove. Fresh stains are generally easier to tackle, as they haven’t had the chance to deeply penetrate or bond with the surface. Most of the time our customers have stains that have been untreated for weeks or even months.

Fabric sensitivity: Some fabrics can be especially delicate or sensitive to certain cleaning agents or methods. Using harsh chemicals or techniques to remove stains can cause damage and even make the stain worse. This adds an extra level of difficulty to getting rid of the stain. Thankfully, we’ve got the kit and the experience to meet the challenge.
