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.

I’ve had other companies quote and its cheaper than yours, why is this?

unfortunately not all cleaning companies are the same, simply we all do things differently. We follow strict procedures for every job and as our reputation matters to us and we do our up most to ensure 100% customer satisfaction. Our prices are based on the workmanship and quality we put into every job and the customer service you receive. We have invested in training, insurances and have some of the most powerful and up to date equipment within Shropshire. There are some companies who don’t bother with any of the above, they are simply as the saying goes “splash and dash” companies. If you have a problem after they’ve ruined your carpets, many wont return back leaving you to pick up the bill. 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

What areas do you cover?

Quoting over the phone?

Though we appreciate you may need a quote over the phone, for comparison etc. It is very hard for us to give prices over the phone so please don’t be offended. It is sometimes possible to give you an estimate based on your room sizes. We prefer to come and give you a free home survey/quotation.

We all tend to have those “under the kitchen sink products” that have been there ages and unfortunately we tend to grab these first, squirt and rub and hope for the best, But really what are you putting on your carpet and what can it unknown damage DIY stain removal cause?

Firstly proper vacuuming is one of the most important parts of maintaining the appearance of your carpet. Many people don’t realize that frequent vacuuming removes dry soil from their carpets and in turn prolongs the life of their carpet. Dry soil grinds against there carpet fibres, damaging them and causing them to dull in appearance, leading to premature wear. Health is also another reason to regularly vacuum. As we spend nearly 90% of our time indoors, indoor air quality is vital. Our carpets act as filters trapping soil, dust and skin particles. As with any filter if its not cleaned regular its benefits are greatly [...]

The carpet industry moves at a fast pace and its important to stay ahead of things. We use eco-friendly products from a British company based in Cornwall called Solutions. The products themselves are much friendly than traditional detergents and chemicals.

We have recently completed a advanced spot and stain course, regarding the use of bleaches to improve cleaning results.

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 [...]
