Here are just some of the services we can provide:

Carpet Cleaning

Our carpets are an expensive investment, let us clean them regularly to maintain their appearance, and extend their life. Your carpets trap soils, dust, pet hairs and also act as a filter for many other pollutants. Regular vacuuming removes some of these but is not able to remove particles deep within.  Regular cleaning has been proven to do this and also improves indoor air quality.

Cleaning processes we use

  1. Extraction cleaning-
  • Thorough vacuuming with a professional-grade vac.
  • A pre-spray is then applied, this is a cleaning solution that breaks down the soiling in the carpet and suspends it in this solution.
  • A thorough brushing in of this solution deep into the carpet pile using a mechanical agitator, designed specifically for this task.
  • The final process, a complete rinse, and extraction of this solution using a high powered machine.
This is the industry accepted, most intense way of cleaning your carpets, don’t let any company tell you otherwise.  99% of carpets can be cleaned this way, and 90% of professional carpet cleaners use this process, as their main process.  During this process we will move furniture, sofas, etc., where possible, to clean every inch of your carpet, the furniture will then be put back on foil pads or blocks while the carpet dries.
      2. Low moisture cleaning-
  • Thorough vacuuming.
  • Application of a free rinsing pre-spray.
  • Agitation of this solution into the carpeting using a rotating cleaning machine, which has attached to it a special scrubbing bonnet.
  • Then using the same machine, we attach a different microfibre pad (bonnet), which has a very high absorbency and this draws the soil into the pad.
This process is used mainly in commercial situations and is highly effective in keeping workspaces clean and back in use quickly, usually within the hour.
      3. Dry powder cleaning-
  • Thorough vacuuming.
  • The powder medium is sprinkled on the carpet pile, brushed in with a CRB (contra-rotating brush machine) designed for this task, the powder medium then absorbs the soiling.
  • After a short dwell time, the powder and soil are vacuumed away.

Leather Cleaning

There are many hides, colours, and finishes on modern leather suites.

It is very important to regularly clean these items as grease and soiling will eventually break down the protective coating applied to these and cause cracking, hardening, and colour loss.
Our cleaning process starts with a light clean with lukewarm water and a microfibre cloth to remove any surface dust and soil. This is then followed by a cleaning agent applied like a foam to each panel of the suite, lightly massaged into the leather either by hand or with a special sponge. This is then given a little time to dwell on the leather to break down the soiling, this agent along with soiling is then wiped off using absorbent tissue.
The last process is to apply a protector to the leather, which enhances the protective coating on the leather, which acts as a barrier to resist daily soiling, noticeable dye transfer (from jeans, etc) on light suites, and give you more time
to wipe away spillages which could damage the leather.
All the products we use are supplied by the LTT (Leather Training and Technical) in Harrogate and are regarded as one of the most innovative in the field of leather cleaning and restoration.

Rug Cleaning

Over the years rugs become dull, dirty, and lifeless, breathe new life into them with a thorough deep clean.
There are a great variety of rugs on the market today with many different styles, constructions, and fibres, both natural and synthetic. We love to clean rugs and offer a collect, clean, and return service where possible.
Rugs will be inspected and tested for safety to clean, so rest assured your treasured rug will be in safe hands.
We are constantly amazed at the difference a newly cleaned rug makes to the look of a room.
There are subtle differences in the cleaning processes used on a rug depending upon how it is made, you will be advised on the process we intend to use.

Upholstery Cleaning

Upholstery cleaning is a very delicate operation. Modern suites have a vast array of patterns, styles and colours.  Again, we love to clean upholstery, as the results that can be achieved can be fantastic.

Cleaning a suite – frame, cushions, arms etc can be time consuming, we do take our time, and clean every inch of the suite.
The cleaning process is as follows:
  • Vacuum with special upholstery tools removing loose soil and dust.
  • Apply a specialist upholstery pre-spray which helps to break down the built-up soiling, paying special attention to heavily soiled areas, usually arms, seat cushions, head area. This is then lightly agitated with a natural fibre brush.
  • The fabric is then thoroughly rinsed through with a specialist hand tool at the same time as the loosened soil and the pre-spray is drawn from the suite, leaving a thoroughly clean fabric.
