Hiring a carpet cleaning company is essentially letting strangers into your home. Therefore, it is most important to seek a reputable company, who have a strong clientele and ready available testimonies and references at your request. Knowing the company is well established will give you peace of mind, that not only the work being carried out is to the highest standards, but that the technicians are fully-trained and trustworthy.


The Process

Ask questions: What cleaning method do they use? How do they plan to achieve their promised results? What’s the drying time? Do they charge extra fees?

Buy cheap, Buy twice

This couldn’t be more true than when it comes to choosing a carpet cleaner. Low priced carpets cleaning companies are usually cutting costs somewhere. Such cuts may be – inadequate staff training, using discounted cleaning products which could damage your carpets, or intending on adding additional costs once they’ve got their foot in the door. Although value for money is important, make sure it just that, and not something you’ll regret in the long run.

Eco-friendly cleaning methods

Why pay carpet cleaners to remove the allergens, dust mites, and bacteria from your carpet, only to replace them with dangerous chemicals? Always look for carpet cleaning companies that use eco-friendly cleaning solutions and products. These are safer for the environment, your carpets and most importantly your family and pets.

Top 5 Tips For Choosing a Professional Leather Upholstery Cleaner

Top 5 Tips for Choosing a Professional Leather Upholstery Cleaner


Renew Leather upholstery Cleaning


Leather upholstery never dates and like a fine wine, it gets better with age. It is often chosen over fabric for its durability, and once well maintained it can last a lifetime. Part of this maintenance is having your leather upholstery professionally cleaned. Calling in the professionals for anything in your home can be a daunting task, perhaps more so when it comes to something as classic as leather.

With super low prices and special offers being shouted from the rooftops, it’s easy to have your judgement clouded from the more important factors.

To help make the decision process a little easier for you, we have complied our Top Five Tips for Choosing a Professional Leather Upholstery Cleaner.


  1. Knowledge is Power:

It’s important to know what to expect from a professional cleaning company before you book. Don’t be afraid to ask questions: Are there any extra costs? How long will the job take? Will there be after care instructions?

Any reputable company will welcome your questions, and are often so passionate about what they do, you can’t shut them up!


  1. Creditability:

You will be letting these people into your home, so it’s important that they are a well-established and reputable company. Ask for references from previous customers, and check their website for testimonies. You want to make sure that the company you choose have fully qualified and trust worthy technicians. You don’t want your furniture being their guinea pig! Knowing that they are well known in their field, will give you peace of mind when booking.


  1. Value for money:

Value for money doesn’t always mean the lowest price. This should be calculated with how their cleaning and care packages will be cost effective for you in the long. Of course, we all love a bargain, however, if you shop around and the price seems too good to be true, it usually is. Companies that offer super low prices are making the costs up somewhere – whether it’s using budget cleaning solutions which could ruin your upholstery. Inadequate staff training – which could, again, ruin your upholstery. Any immediate savings that you think you’re making, could cost you twice as much in the long run.


  1. Eco-friendly:

In today’s world, we are all aware of the importance of caring for the environment. Professional cleaning can often be associated with the use of harsh chemicals and products. A superb cleaning company should be able to achieve their promised results by using excellent cleaning methods and eco-friendly cleaning solutions. Your home is your haven and you want to be able to relax in the knowledge that your loved ones are not being exposed to potentially harmful chemicals.


  1. Guarantee:

Leather upholstery is usually designed to last a lifetime. You want to make sure that having your leather upholstery professionally cleaned won’t cost you this benefit, by the job being done poorly.

Always choose a company that can guarantee their work. A reputable cleaning company will be confident enough to offer a 100% money back guarantee. Also check that they are fully insured, safe pass certified and tax compliant. If something does go wrong, having work guaranteed can save you an awful lot of money and stress in the long run.
