Carpet Cleaning and Scotchguarding
Why regular cleaning is necessary
Just as the clothes we wear need regular washing to keep them fresh and hygienic, as do carpets and upholstered furniture as require periodic cleaning.
Accumulated soil and grit are major causes of reduced carpet and fabric life, and enable destructive, health harmful mites and bacteria to work unchecked.
Cleaning costs are minimal when you consider the replacement cost of carpets and furnishings, so regular cleaning makes economic sense also.
How we do it
There are several methods used, but the aim of all is the same; to remove as much of, if not all, the accumulated dust, grit and general soiling as possible.
Regular vacuuming is a fundamental part of ‘housekeeping’, but more specialised equipment and knowledge are required in order to clean properly.
There are several cleaning methods, the choice depending on many factors, mainly on the type of article, its construction, age and condition, degree of soiling, location and the time available for the cleaning to be carried out.
The most common methods are shampooing, hot water extraction (inaccurately referred to as steam cleaning) and the use of impregnated compounds which are brushed into the carpet and subsequently removed with a vacuum cleaner.
We have the experience and expertise to recommend the most appropriate method of achieving the best possible results, whatever the circumstances.’
