After buying your house and car the next largest investment you will make is for the carpets and furniture. Regular cleaning will prolong their life and retain the pleasing appearance. In the same way that you would have your car serviced at least once a year then you should consider the same concept when it comes to maintaining those expensive soft furnishings.

How do you go about it?

1      Do it yourself…. Produces limited results, can be risky as it is easy to get carried away and over-wet causing shrinkage or discolouration.. Any detergent residues left behind can cause the items to get dirtier much quicker.

2      Leave them…. Soil build up can be unsightly and cause long term damage to carpet fibres and fabrics.

3      Employ a professional cleaning company… Be wary of half price offers that are pushed through the letterbox, many of these are the hallmark of the ‘bait and switch’ operation. They offer a low price but once in the home the price rises significantly through all the ‘added’ extras. Often they may have no insurance cover in the event that things go wrong.
