Professional cleaning of a quality rug


A gentleman brought me a quality rug for cleaning a few days ago.  He had attempted to clean the rug himself, but unfortunately his efforts had made matters much worse. It was successfully cleaned and restored to its former glory using my 7 point cleaning process.

Firstly, the rug was thoroughly vacuumed to remove service dirt and grime.

Secondly, the rug was pre-sprayed using a prespotter.

Thirdly, the rug was agitated using a sebo duo (mechanical rotating brush) to help loosen the remaining dirt .

Fourthly, the rug was cleaned using the hot water extraction method, augmented with an inline steaming attachment to remove ingrained soiling and dirt.

Fifthly, the rug was sprayed with a finishing spray to, set the dyes and prevent them from running, to neutralise the alkaline prespotter, to kill any fungal spores and dust mites and to give the rug a fresh smell.

Sixthly, the rug was thoroughly dried.

Don’t get taken in by do it yourself carpet cleaning.


I have come across a number of customers that have previously cleaned carpets themselves using a do it yourself carpet cleaning machine which they have either bought or hired “in order to save money”.  Can I make it abundantly clear that the hire or purchase of such inferior equipment is a complete false economy.  You simply will not achieve the same results using one of these machines.  I have invested thousands of pounds in professional cleaning equipment, how on earth can a machine that costs less than a few hundred pounds likely to achieve similar results.  Frankly they are a complete waste of time and money.

A further problem arises, as many of the D.I.Y machines use a carpet shampoo in solution This is really counterproductive as the shampoo, that inevitably remains in the carpet fibres actually attracts future dirt, just  like a powerful magnet and in a short time your carpets will appear even dirtier than they were before you attempted  cleaning them!!!

In future let me do the job properly for you, using my state of the art cleaning equipment and techniques, leaving your carpets spotlessly clean and bone dry.  This will all be achieved at a reasonable cost to you. Please remember I will clean carpets in Redruth, Camborne, Truro, Falmouth, Helston, Penzance, Newquay, Newlyn, Hayle and all surrounding areas.

Please give me a call, I promise you that you will not be disappointed. I am committed 100% to total customer satisfaction.

Brilliant Photograph

This is a brilliant panoramic photograph of my van and I perched high up on the cliffs at Portreath on the North Cornish Coast.  What a wonderful view this is with Gull rock clearly seen in the distance.  This photograph was taken and produced by Colin Higgs, professional photographer, specifically to appear in an advert I have taken out in the West Cornwall Planning Guide, which is due to be published in June / July.  This is a remarkable view and it brings home to me how privileged those of us are, who are lucky enough to live and work in this most beautiful part of the world.
