Spring is just around the corner!

Spring is just around the corner!

After being stuck indoors all winter it will soon be time to throw open your windows and welcome in the sunshine.
You’ll feel the urge to spring clean but where do you start? Washing down paintwork, dusting and getting rid of clutter are all good places to start but what about your carpets and soft furnishings?
You may be tempted to try and clean them yourself. The “do-it-yourself” approached may appear to be less expensive, however it is never as effective as professional cleaning and will involve a lot of time and hard work. Mistakes are easily made, resulting in costly and irreparable damage.
Below are three good reasons why you should never attempt to clean your carpets and soft furnishings yourself.
1. Failure to remove all the soiling – hired carpet & upholstery cleaning machines will only remove a small fraction of the soil. They are not powerful enough to remove all the dirt, grease, allergens, dust mites and other contaminants that cause your carpets and soft furnishings to prematurely wear out.
2. Over wetting – a common issue with a hired carpet & upholstery cleaning machine is that the item becomes too wet, leading to mould and mildew problems, shrinkage, dye bleed and damage to the look, feel and texture of the item.
3. Failure to rinse properly – this again is caused by underpowered machines leaving chemical residues behind. These residues will cause your carpets and upholstery to re-soil rapidly and will be detrimental to your health and well-being, causing rashes, breathing problems and worsening existing allergies.
So, if you want to retain the appearance of your carpets and soft furnishings, and extend their life, then have them regularly deep cleaned by our professional carpet and upholstery cleaning team with the equipment and skills to do the job properly without causing unnecessary damage.
