  • FAQs

    What can I realistically expect from cleaning?

    When we visit your home for your initial quote, we will give an expert assessment of what we can achieve. If there are some stains or marks that we do not think we can remove completely, we will let you know.

    We will also let you know if we think the material in your curtains or upholstery is too worn or fragile and runs the risk of being damaged if cleaned. We always strive to be honest about what we can or cannot achieve, which is why we like to provide a quote after seeing the task at hand.

    How likely is it you’ll be able to get my stain out?

    With years of experience and some of the best equipment in the industry, we have high rates of success at stain removal. Unfortunately we cannot guarantee we will be able to remove every stain, however we will let you know whether we believe we can get a stain out at quotation.

    Post cleaning, how long will it take for my carpets to dry?

    Although you can walk on your carpets immediately after cleaning, it is best to leave them undisturbed until they are completely dry. Sofas and chairs may be damp to sit on immediately and are best left unused until they are dry.

    All dry times are dependent on atmospheric conditions, in addition to the type of fabric or carpet. If dry times are important to you, talk to us when we quote you and we will give you a more accurate and specific dry time for your carpets and upholstery based on our years of experience.

    If we clean curtains in situ, you will be able to use them immediately, though it is best to leave them drawn closed so that air can circulate around them. In most cases they should be dry later that day.

    If we have put protective foil tabs or Styrofoam blocks under the legs of furniture to protect your carpet, you should leave them in place until it is fully dry.

    Should I move my furniture before you begin cleaning?

    We would appreciate it if you would move small, fragile or valuable things for insurance reasons, such as lamps, ornaments and fragile or valuable items of furniture. If you can, please put them well out of the way before we arrive in an area which is not going to be disturbed by cleaning.

    If we can, we will move large furniture such as chairs, sofas and tables, during cleaning and put them back where we found them.

    We want the whole process to be as stress free for you as possible.

    How much will my cleaning service cost?

    Every job is different so it is hard to give you an idea of what it will cost without knowing and preferably seeing what needs to be done. That is why we like to visit your home to assess what is needed, identify what we can achieve, calculate how long it will take and provide you with a quotation.

    What we can guarantee, without exception, is that the price we quote is the price you will pay. There will be no surprise extras unless you ask for them.

    We will always provide the quotation free and without obligation.

  • Something fishy going on here!

    This aquarium leak led to a large water mark on the carpet. This resulted in the dye from the carpet backing bleeding into the surface creating an orange water mark. A combination of a dye reducer and a powerful cleaning machine restored the carpet to its former glory.

  • A cup slips from your hand

    Tea and wool carpets are not the best of friends.
    Using the best spotting solutions and a powerful extraction machine the carpet was restored to its former beauty.

    A cup slips from your hand
    A cup slips from your hand

    Being Welsh and knowing a thing or two about 'leeks' I was able to select the right solutions to solve this little problem.


    Yes! ....but preferably not on my cushion.
    This is a very stubborn stain due to the' tannin' dye agent contained in tea.
    By using a range of reducing agents and crossing our fingers we are able in most cases to remove this stain.


    We are often left with large ring marks after attempting to clean small stains with proprietary cleaning kits.
    We first have to neutralise the existing chemical cleaners and then re-clean the fabric fully to restore the look of the cushion.


    Liquid polish squirted out onto carpet is a difficult stain due to the dark dye in the fluid.
    A number of specialist solvents were able to make significant improvements.


    Yes, I think we can!
    We thought we had a brown carpet to clean until we revealed the pink.


    These 'orange brown' stains can appear when a carpet is saturated with water, in this case the aquarium leaked.
    This is often the dye from the carpet backing migrating to the surface as the carpet dries.

  • Furniture Dye

    Have you seen those 'orange brown ' stains when furniture is moved. This is often loose dye transferred from the feet of the furniture particularly when the carpet is damp. These are often impossible to remove but here is an example of where the 'dye solvents ' used were successful.

  • A very dirty stair carpet!

    We were called in to look at an extremely dirty carpet which had lost all its colour and pattern. With just our powerful standard cleaning solution and rinse machine the transformation was stunning. Colour and pattern fully visible again.
    Would your carpet enjoy a similar treatment?

    A very dirty stair carpet!

    Those strange 'wavy' lines on carpets we see sometimes under long curtains. These are caused by currents of air gently blowing dust in a constant swirl which in turn get trapped under the long curtains as they touch the carpet surface. This creates stubborn black draught marks similar to those we see around the edges of carpets or under doors near door-bars.

  • urine on mattress

    A very common problem but sometimes impossible to remove. See how Safeclean South Essex & Havering removed this urine stain off this mattress.
