RESTORE YOUR CARPETS & UPHOLSTERY

Professionally cleaning your carpets regularly will help to prolong their life and keep your home looking it’s best.  

Why clean your carpets?

Regularly removing spots and stains will make your carpets easier to maintain and help them last longer.

Carpets hold many allergens such as dust mites.  A professional deep clean removes this bacteria and can help allergy sufferers. 

When a carpet is clogged with dust and dirt it can lead to a stuffy atmosphere.  A deep clean can improve the air flow and air quality in your home.

Wear and tear can make your carpets feel matted and hard underfoot.  Removing dirt will improve the texture of your carpet so it looks and feels better.

It is possible to clean carpets yourself using carpet powders or shampoos.  However this involves a large amount of preparation time, several stages of cleaning, without the guarantee that stains will be removed.  Shampoos take hours to dry, putting rooms out of action.  We can save you the hassle and provide a quality result.

 

Carpet cleaning FAQs

How do I remove coffee stains from my carpet?
Blot up as much of the coffee as you can with paper towels. Then, mix one tablespoon of washing up liquid, one tablespoon of white vinegar and two cups of warm water. Using a clean cloth, sponge the stain with the mixture. Apply a little bit at a time, blotting frequently with a dry paper towel until the stain starts to go. Finally, sponge with cold water and blot dry.
How do I get pet stains off my carpet?
If the area is still wet, blot it with paper towels to absorb any liquid. The quicker you do this the better. Then mix ¼ teaspoon of washing up liquid with a cup of warm water. Treat the stain with this mixture. After the solution has had time to work use a cloth to wipe. Rinse the area with warm water and repeat the steps until the stain starts to fade.
How do I get rid of a red wine stain on my carpet?
Blot up the spilled wine right away. The longer you let the red wine sit on your carpet, the harder it will be to get rid of it. As soon as you notice the spill use paper towels to blot the stain to absorb as much liquid as possible before it can set. Remember to blot, not rub as that could force the liquid deeper into the carpet. Apply some cold water and keep blotting. Once you can’t get any more out apply some cold water to dilute the remaining wine on the carpet. Keep blotting until the carpet is dry again.
Another method is to use salt. Pour salt over the stain while it’s still wet. A good dabbing job will take most of the wine out of the carpet, but usually not all of it. To help get the rest out, try covering the stained spot with a generous portion of salt. The salt granules will gradually draw the moisture in the stain out of the carpet over the next few hours. This is less effective for dried stains. If your stain is getting dry, pour a little water on it first before adding the salt. Then Let the salt sit. As it absorbs the wine, the salt will gradually turn pinkish. Once the stain is almost dry discard the excess salt and vacuum up the carpet. Scoop away the loose salt with a spoon and throw it away. Use a vacuum to suck up the fine particles that remain and hopefully the stain will look better.
Or you could use a vinegar solution. In a large bowl, mix 1 tablespoon of washing up liquid, 1 tablespoon of white vinegar, and 2 cups of warm water. Wet the stain with the mixture. Soak a clean cloth in the vinegar mixture, then dab it on to the stained part of the carpet to loosen the stain. Blot the liquid with paper towels as you go. Then Wet the whole stain with cold water and then blot again. Then repeat the steps until the stain goes.
The last method is white wine and baking soda. Pour a little white wine onto the stain. White wine dilutes the colour of the red stain much like water. Blot the stain with a sponge. If you do it lightly enough, this will soak up some of the colour without pressing the stain into the carpet fibres. Apply a baking soda paste of three parts water to one part baking soda. Cover the stain with a clean cloth overnight and put something heavy on top of it. Vacuum up the baking soda once it dries.

Upholstery Cleaning FAQs

I have cleaned my sofa and now there are pink patches on it. What can I do?
It sounds as if the dyes in the fabric have reacted to the cleaning chemicals you have used. You could try an acidic rinse if you used an alkaline product. You need to treat any colour changes as soon as they appear for the best chance to remove them successfully.
When cleaning patterned sofa some of the colours have run. How do I treat it?
Unfortunately dye bleed is irreversible and permanent. Every colour should be tested with the products you are going to use for the cleaning process.
What is the best way to clean a very soiled sofa and not get it too wet?
In this situation give the upholstery two light cleans and carry out stain removal after cleaning. Use towelling to speed up the drying process.
What is the best way to clean a leather sofa?
Use a dedicated leather cleaner for smooth leather and rinse off with a cloth, then apply a leather conditioner.
Can I remove pen, ink marks and paint off a leather sofa?
Most leather is absorbent making it impossible to remove these type of stains. You can try to carefully treat just the marks but the only solution could be for a leather repairer to re-dye and re-finish the leather.
How can I clean suede?
Suede can only be cleaned with a solvent. It will darken when cleaning but should return to a normal colour once dry.
Can I clean my mattress?
Mattresses can be cleaned like other upholstery. You need to make sure you do not make it too wet. It is important to sanitise the mattress after cleaning.
How can you clean vertical blinds?
It is important to per test blinds to check how stable the fabric is. Usually they are synthetic but some have a stiffening agent that could be affected by water. You can sponge clean blinds then towel wipe if they are only lightly soiled.
How do I clean headboards?
Check if the fabric can be cleaned using wet products. Headboards often have greasy marks so using a solvent additive could help remove grease. Be aware that if the headboard has come into contact with hairspray this could react with cleaning chemicals and lead to colour change.
How do I clean velvet?
Firstly, you need to find out if the material is natural or synthetic velvet. If it is synthetic it can be wet cleaned. The pile needs to be carefully brushed while still damp.
How do I get rid of the smell of smoke in a sofa?
Clean your sofa in the usual way but add an odour neutraliser to your cleaning solution.
I have cleaned by sofa and now it smells of damp, what can I do?
You may have made your sofa too wet when cleaning or not put in place the right drying conditions. Good ventilation is needed. Use a deodoriser to try and remove odours.
Can I use carpet cleaning products on upholstery?
Some milder carpet cleaning products can be used on upholstery. Most stain removal products can be used on sofas but always read the label and do a patch test.
I have lots of chairs to clean but they can’t get too wet because they need to be used again soon after. How should I clean them?
Dry cleaning with solvent will be expensive and the result is not always as good as wet cleaning. Solvents can take longer to dry than low moisture wet cleaning with water-based solutions. Try using fabric shampoo. Apply the foam only with a sponge to vacuumed upholstery according to the label instructions and then towel off to remove excess moisture. Always do a small test on the upholstery before you start.
How do you get rid of ring marks on a white cotton sofa?
This is a common problem on light natural fibres such as cotton. This is usually caused by uneven wetting or over-wetting when cleaning. You can try fibre shampoo but a professional should be able to help improve the marks.

Regularly cleaning your furniture helps it last longer and prevents a build up of dirt and grime. As with carpets, dust and allegens can be found in your upholstery. Deep cleaning your sofas and chairs will improve the air quality in your home.
