Professional Cleaning Protects & Extends Life Of Carpets

Professional Cleaning Protects & Extends Life Of Carpets

We all know that carpets are a relatively new item in the household list iof ‘must haves’ and in fact they are beginning to wane in popularity in some quarters again.  The desire for carpets only in one or two rooms is now becoming the norm.  Certainly not wanted in the washrooms, wcs, kitchens or anywhere else that gets grubby and needs constant refreshing and almost sterilising.   However those houses that do still boast a magnificent wool carpet are very…

For Short Term But Thorough Room Sorter

For Short Term But Thorough Room Sorter

Sometimes I look round my nice spacious family house and realise it has the beginnings of a care worn look . . .  Not the image the busy ‘she who does’ needs to project, that’s for sure.   I have learned that tackling any situation immediately is the only way I can operate.   My instinct is to engage the services of a professional carpet cleaning company – but failing that, my route to mental salvation is to take one room at…

Spring Carpet Beating To Prepare For Summer

Spring Carpet Beating To Prepare For Summer

There’s no doubt that in the ‘good old days’ we knew where we stood with the seasons.  Autumn clocked in around October – very reliably in time for bonfire night as a rule.  We’d have dampness and leaves fluttering down for a couple of months and then winter would really make an entrance just before Christmas.  Here we would suffer the ravages of really bad rain, freezing temperatures, icicles the lot.  Once spring returned in April, the spring clean started…

Those Little Poppets Can Batter The Carpet

Those Little Poppets Can Batter The Carpet

The easter holiday season will be upon us before long.  Those lovely lazy days of playing with children who have a large number of very chocolatey treats.  Yes, the easter egg fun is wonderful for them – not healthy, but jolly good fun all the same.  But as we all know, getting chocolate out of a pale honey coloured carpet can present a major problem.  The first thing is to scrape up any residue of the chocolate – a palette…

Cleaning One Off Carpet Messes

Cleaning One Off Carpet Messes

Removing normal carpet stains must be done fast – using a mild no rinse carpet detergent.  Always a good idea to keep a bottle under the sink . . .  you might get it a little damper than recommended if the mess was liqid anyway. Panic not, just clean off loose mess first and then start with the solution – froth it up as much as you can and only use the foam on your scrubbing brush.  Starting from the…

House Sitting & Refreshing Carpet Time

House Sitting & Refreshing Carpet Time

I’ve just come back from a super busy week of family based Christmas and New Year activities.  Except due to poor health, I had to cut short my stay.    However I did have the delight of staying at the hostesses lovely country house for a couple of weeks prior to Christmas – they were away on vacation and I was happily installed on dog walking and house sitting duty.  Now that’s the kind of job I really love.  I…

Those Poor Carpets – Battered All Year Round

Those Poor Carpets – Battered All Year Round

Just at this time of year, when we’ve had the Halloween fun – with the kids rushing in and out with pumpkins to be turned, miraculously and messily, into funny ad frightening lanterns.   Then we run into our dear old Bonfire Night.  I still like the idea of running around with our old narrow that Dad made, on it we plonked our fantastic Guy – also rather more input from Dad than us . . .  this used to bring…

Getting Carpet Cleaning Into Gear For Christmas

Getting Carpet Cleaning Into Gear For Christmas

With so many things happening throughout the summer season, it can get to the point where the summer holidays are running into the autumn break and then up shoots Christmas and the new year.  We all like to have folk around over these festive days – nothing better than a crowd round for lunch, followed by games and fun with the children romping around on the floor.   It’s not such fun though when the little romper and his clothese are…

Hotel Cleaning Left Much To Be Desired

Hotel Cleaning Left Much To Be Desired

One of my daughters has been nvited to several weddings this year.  It’s really nice to be wanted and liked enough for these very happy occasions, but the cost on the wallet is rather steep.  Six weddings in one season does rather notch it up to another level.    One of the things that must be taken into account when accepting all these invites is how much will each hotel room be and what will you get for your money.  Two…

Charity Homing Scheme Relies On Professional Cleaning

Charity Homing Scheme Relies On Professional Cleaning

I was out with a social group on an afternoon jolly  out recently.   Instead of the old bingo and card games in the hall, the lat July meeting is always a visit out.  We attended a very specialist charity site in a tiny wee village near here.   The purpose of the village is to provide shelter, work and retraining for life for several homeless and vulnerable men.   The work they have to do is mixed from essential tasks in the…
