Carpet cleaning - recommendations?

Post by alywin » 25 Oct 2016 09:19

We've been looking for a local carpet cleaning service, without much luck so far, so I wondered if anyone had any recommendations? Last time, we used one of those companies who put fliers offering 1/2-price services through the letterbox, but haven't seen any signs of them for ages, and we weren't that impressed with the results.

We're in an upstairs flat, and looking for one reception and the stairs to be cleaned - it's only everyday grime, nothing needing specialist cleaning. I don't have a car, and doubt I'd be able to haul the necessary equipment upstairs anyway, so renting and DIY isn't an option.

Thanks for any suggestions.

I used Fantastic Cleaners, which had a local operator in Sydenham. They were fine - prices are specified on their website.

Hello,

The best method against difficult-to-clean grease stains is to use a drop or two of a grease-cutting dishwashing detergent, such as Joy, in a cup of water. It'll cut through the grease in the carpet just the way it does on your dishes. "Put the solution in a spray bottle and spray it on the stain," Tarbox says. "Then blot it up." Again, you may need to do this multiple times for larger stains.

I recommend Prolux Carpet Cleaning which are local to Sydenham area. Their services are the best and their prices are fixed to anyone's budget. Can see in their website. https://www.proluxcleaning.co.uk/carpet-cleaning/

I used Prolux today to clean my carpet on the stairs and landing. I was very impressed with the service the company gave from start to finish. The fact they do Sundays was perfect for me. From start to finish it was very quick - 20 minutes total to clean the carpet and most of the stains came out. There is a minimum charge of £50 which mine fell under because it was small. It is very possible that a bigger carpet would also fall into the same bracket. (I’ve tried to post before and after photos but not sure if they have worked. The after shot was taken immediately after the process so still a little damp).
