How often should i have my soft furnishings cleaned?

Most manufacturers recommend the wet extraction method as the best way to clean your carpets and upholstery, this should be done every 12 months to 18 months. Regular vacuuming with an upright cleaner are recommended for between cleans weekly.

JL carpet cleaning quote only one price (based on the home survey) There are no hidden charges or add on’s.

What about stains?

carpets go through a rough time, so its pretty common to get the odd spot and stain on a carpet. Spots or unknown marks are usually where dirt has been attracted to something stick or residual, these are usually simply to remove. Staining were colour has been added to the carpet can be much harder to remove. Its important to understand that whilst we have removed countless stains before there’s never a guarantee that the stain can be removed. Sometimes removal may cause bleaching of the carpet fibre. We always recommend not using under the sink products on stains as these can “lock in” the stain with permanent effect. Check out our page on DIY stain removal.

My carpet after it was last cleaned become dirty quickly, why?

If you previously had a carpet cleaned, either using hire equipment or using another company and it has become dirty much quicker than expected this is down to residues from cleaning detergents being left in the carpet. The residues from cleaning weren’t rinsed out of the carpet thus attracting dirt. For more information on this check out our page on DIY carpet cleaning.  JL carpet cleaning use free rinsing Eco friendly products, these break the bond between dirt and fibre allowing them to be rinsed away with water, leaving your carpet healthy, fresh and most importantly dirt free

Cheap carpet cleaning Telford, the hazards

stretched carpet due to over-wetting

In today’s hard economic times there is an ever increasing demand to save  money, carpet cleaning is no exception. However there are many pitfalls to avoid whilst considering who to use or what to use to clean your carpets.

Cleaning carpets isn’t just as easy as using any generic carpet shampoo or troubleshooting sprayer from under the kitchen sink. Being under the impression that all carpet cleaners are the same and we all use the same chemicals and machines is also far from it. firstly there are many different carpet fibres and many different colour dyes available all requiring different products, some require acidic rinses to leave them in the most stable condition so colours don’t bleed or fade. There are many different carpet backings some sensitive to water and some cannot be cleaned with normal water extraction methods.  Experienced cleaners have invested heavily in products, equipment, training, fibre identification and insurance to be able to offer the best service possible and most importantly the best results and ultimately clean your carpets the right way.

Cheap carpet cleaning is a false economy. Some people revert to using some of the examples below to save money:

Cheap hire equipment

Many people believe hiring a machine and running it across your carpets is as simply as that, job done. The simple truth is its not Why….

  • The machines are sometimes not cleaned out thoroughly before being re hired
  • Generic solutions are sold with the machine which my not be right for your carpet
  • Hire machines don’t have the suction power of professional machine, most professional cleaning systems cost thousands, why would cleaners spend this amount if a hire machine did the job just as well for a fraction of the cost? These machines simply cannot pull the dirt from the base of your carpet
  • They leave your carpets soaking which seeps into the backing and underlay causing damage and odour to form.


Cheap carpet cleaning companies

On the other hand there are companies offering cheap carpet cleaning for extremely low prices, which attract a lot of attention. Whilst price is an important factor in deciding, the most important factor is you what the job doing right. Some low cost cleaners can turn up with nothing more than a hire machine. You should ask some important questions….

  • What type of equipment do they use, is it similar to what you could hire?
  • Have they ascertained what carpet fibre their cleaning and changes their methods to suit
  • Do they pre-vacuum
  • Do they have insurance and training
  • Bargain offers on paper, but hiked cost on arrival

INCORRECTLY CLEANED CARPETS WILL END UP COSTING YOU MONEY. many problems can occur from inexperienced cleaning from carpet stretching or rippling. Odour problems due to excess moisture and carpets are not cleaned to a sufficient standard.

So don’t be fooled by cheap carpet cleaning prices. Whilst we may charge more, but check out what we do, at  JL Carpet cleaning take pride in what we do and our reputation. We look to give the very best possible service every time. So next time ask yourself what your really paying for
