It’s been another hectic month for us!

Usually, November can be a little slower before the mad rush in December as our customers get their carpets, floors and furnishings refreshed ready for the inevitable onslaught of xmas visitors!

This month has been our busiest ever and we’re fast filling up the diary for December.

We’ve been working throughout homes and businesses in South Wales in November – everywhere from West Wales right up to the Severn Bridge.

As well as working in some prestigious large hotels, we’ve also been cleaning in some great small local businesses.

Here’s a carpet cleaning job that we completed for a local store in Pontypridd:

I’ve been thinking recently about producing some YouTube videos to show how we go about our work.

These videos will also contain tips and tricks to remove common daily spills and stains safely and quickly. They should be genuinely helpful and save any mishaps.

Look out for them on this website and our social media channels in the coming weeks!

Which reminds me: many of the stains we remove can be easily removed with our brilliant professional stain remover. It knocks spots of any shop bought product – in results and safety.

Carpet and Upholstery Urine Stains

One of the more regular call-outs that we get are for pet urine stains – and there were plenty of them this month!

The most vital thing you can do with a urine stain is to react FAST!

You do not want the stain to set into the fibres and go into the backing of the carpet.

Either call a professional carpet cleaner or, if you’re happy to treat the stain yourself, the following method should work beautifully:

First thing is NOT to spray urine stains with any household or shop bought products!

Blot with kitchen paper and apply a solution of 2 parts water to one part white vinegar.

Pour it onto stain…

Leave for 10-15 minutes and then blot till it is reasonably dry.

Once nearly dry, sprinkle some baking soda onto area and leave for 15 minutes ish and then vacuum area.

This should remove stain and neutralise the odor!

Treating the stain in this way, means you massively reduce the chance of lingering odour or any permanent damage.

As always, if you have any questions, please get in touch.

P.S. It’s looking like a crazy December and our appointments will soon run out. If you’re needing your carpets or furnishings restored next month, please let us know asap to avoid disappointment.

P.P.S. We also have one hell of a competition that we’re running in December. Stay tuned as this will be our best giveaway yet. And it will make the most amazing Christmas present for a loved one!!!

What Germs Are Lurking In Your Carpets?

What Germs Are Lurking In Your Carpets?

There’s nothing like the feeling of walking barefoot across, lush, fresh and bouncy carpets.

A beautifully clean carpet adds comfort, practicality and luxury to a room.

But there’s a problem with carpets, or any type of flooring…

Vacuuming simply won’t remove the allergens that cause many of our allergic reactions and health problems that are often dismissed as “one of those things.”

In fact, most people suffer from niggles that are possibly caused by germs, mites or bacteria harbored in our flooring.

And most commercial rental machines don’t have sufficient power to kill these germs and make your home a healthier environment.

I’ve often mentioned having your carpets regularly cleaned. It’s not purely for appearance or to prolong their lifespan – it’s predominately for health!

Here’s what you’ll usually find looking in your carpets, flooring and upholstery:

Dust Mites (High Association With Allergies)


Mold Spores

Dead Insects

Pet Hair & Skin / Dander (High Association With Allergies)



Embedded Dirt


The Most Effective Carpet & Upholstery Cleaning Method For Health

These are just a few of the many allergens that love a dirty carpet. And so it is clear that you need to thoroughly clean these surfaces at least every 18 months! And more frequently if you have pets and young children.

The best method to deal effectively with these issues is to hire a professional carpet cleaning company that uses the Hot Water Extraction (HWE) method of cleaning.

Although dry cleans are a valid method of carrying out maintenance cleaning, nothing can be the sanitizing results of HWE.
