Frequently Asked Questions
Here’s some regular questions we’re asked about our services. If you have any questions though, please call us any time.
How Often Should I Have My Carpets & Upholstery Cleaned?
Manufacturers recommend professional cleaning at least every 12-18 months. Small particles of soil and grit accumulate over time which regular vacuuming just wont remove. This fine particles act as an abrasion and dramatically reduce the lifespan of your soft furnishings.
How Long Does it Take to Dry?
We give a guideline for carpets to be dry within 2-4 hours and upholstery within 1-2 hours. There are conditions that can affect this, such as the level of soiling, room ventilation and temperature. The techniques , skill and processes we use will minimise the drying times to give you the best results.
Do You Move Furniture?
Yes. It’s part of the service you’ll receive from us. We move items such as sofas, chairs, tables, small units etc. Very heavy items such as large side units may be difficult but we can identify these issues during the survey stage. We only ask you to remove small items and ornaments etc. away from the area being cleaned which will allow us to move furniture properly and place it back after cleaning.
Do I Have to Vacuum First?
Absolutely not! We use a commercial grade vacuum cleaner with a technique to ensure removal of as much dry soil as possible. It’s part of our cleaning process.
Will My Carpets Shrink?
A small amount of carpets are prone to shrinkage. However, this is mostly due to incorrect fitting or maybe the carpet has unsecured from the gripper over time. We can identify any possible issues during our inspection stage. We’ll also take preventative measures, so you don’t need to worry.
