2014 Local and Loved Awards

Local and Loved Awards 2014: Carpet and Upholstery Cleaning

We’ve placed 4th in the UK in the 2014  Local and Loved carpet and upholstery cleaning category!

This year we entered into the Local and Loved awards run by “The Best Of“.

Local and Loved is an annual competition that enables small businesses to get some well deserved recognition for the services they provide.

We love the work that “The Best Of” do on behalf of local businesses. Whether providing free social media seminars, spreading word of mouth about a great local business or helping with marketing, they are passionate about helping you succeed.

They do some great work promoting local companies and the ratings and reviews on their websites are completely transparent as they are filled in by customers and verified before posting on-line.

We were aiming for top 3 (obviously!) but are pleased with 4th and hope to improve further in 2015!!!

Many thanks to all our customers who voted for us and congratulations to all the local businesses who have received recognition for their work.





Beware the Cost of the Lowest Price

If you think a good, professional carpet cleaning company is expensive, you should look at the cost of hiring a bad carpet cleaner..

Let’s imagine for a moment you’ve decided that you need your carpets and upholstery cleaned…

There are 2 immediately apparent options: You can either rent a supermarket machine (no names mentioned!) or search the internet for a professional company that will do the work for you and (hopefully!?) obtain better results.

Upon ringing around various companies, you find that there are differences in prices. In fact, there seems to be 2 distinct pricing camps; Fair or very cheap!

There is a usually a good reason for this…


Let’s take a look at what every conscientous carpet cleaning company should be able to demonstrate as standard:

Full insurance (to protect you against accidental damage!)

Valid 100% guarantee

Top of the range, expensive machinery and equipment 

Safe and effective premium products

In depth knowledge of specialist stain removal

Training in carpet fibre identification

Fully trained and qualified staff

There is always someone who will do it cheaper…

As I’m sure you can appreciate there are costs associated with maintaining these standards and obtaining results you just can’t get from a rental machine or a company employing cheap labour and using sub-standard equipment.

Carpet cleaning as an industry has a low barrier of entry. After all, anybody can hire a mchine from their local shop, throw it in the boot of a car, print some cheap leaflets and, hey presto, they are in business!!!

But, is this the type of company you want to clean your carpets and upholstery???

Skilled and effective carpet and upholstery cleaning can save thousands of pounds in alternative replacements. It can even prolong the lifespan of your expensive investments…

Why would you risk losing these benefits – or even worse – damaging your expensive furnishings, all for the sake of saving a very small amount of money?

It is worth remembering the old adage: “Beware the cost of the lowest price”
