Is carpet stain removal best left to the professionals?

Beautiful carpets can transform the look of your home but no matter how well you look after them, sooner or later they’re likely to fall victim to a glass of red wine or a cup of coffee. If a stain isn’t tackled immediately, the chances are it will leave a permanent mark.

Carpet stain removal is surrounded by myths and old wives tales and whilst some methods do work up to a point, others can actually more damage than the original stain! With this in mind, it’s important to be cautious and before you reach for that damp cloth, you might want to consider the following:

  • Make sure you know what type of carpet you have BEFORE you start trying to remove stains from it. Some cleaning solutions contain bleach-based products which can only be used on polypropylene carpets and even then only with caution. Using bleach on other carpets will cause permanent damage.
  • Try to not to soak the carpet when you’re cleaning it. Water can actually cause stains and a damp carpet is at risk of growing mildew.
  • Never scrub a stain: you’re likely to make it worse and risk damaging the carpet’s fibres.
  • Make sure you remove all cleaning from the detergent as a residue can leave a further stain.
  • Whatever you use on your carpets, make sure you test it on an out-of-sight area first.

Did you know that professional carpet cleaning could improve your health?

Did you know that professional carpet cleaning could improve your health?

It goes without saying that professional cleaning is the best way to ensure yourcarpets are thoroughly clean and looking great. But did you also know that professional carpet cleaning could also be good for your health?

There’s more to professional carpet cleaning than meets the eye and whilst regular cleaning removes pet hair, dust and stains, it could also improve your health in the following ways:

  • Dust mites: dust mites are so small they cannot be seen by the human eye. This makes them extremely difficult to detect and unfortunately they are found in all homes. Dust mites produce allergens which can lead to unpleasant allergies if they’re not removed from the home. However, hot water extraction steam cleaning will kill dust mites in carpets and rugs, eradicating them effectively and ensuring your home is a clean and healthy place to be.
  • Pollutants: pollutants come in all shapes and sizes from dust and dirt, through to flakes of skin from pets, insect allergens and chemicals. Pollutants are easily trapped inside carpet fibres and when they enter the human body, can cause health problems. Professional carpet cleaning offers a highly effective way to remove pollutants from carpets and rugs, leaving your home clean and fresh.
  • Mould: mould occurs in damp, humid homes and can lead to respiratory problems. Professional carpet cleaning removes harmful mould and bacteria, leaving carpets dry and free from mould causing moisture.
  • Eco friendly: at A1 Professional Cleaning we use a range of eco friendly cleaning solutions and products, suitable for use around babies, young children, pets and those with respiratory problems.

As you can see, there’s so much more to professional carpet cleaning than clean looking carpets and stain removal!

Spring cleaning? Don’t forget to clean your carpets!

Transform your home with our professional carpet cleaning services in Leeds

A thorough spring clean is a great way to wash away the cobwebs and ensure your home is sparkling clean and fresh. Spring cleaning usually means cleaning your home from top to bottom and once you’ve tackled everything from the kitchen and bathroom, through to the windows and paintwork, the chances are that you can’t face cleaning the carpets! However, dirty and stained carpets can really spoil the look of your home and although a vacuum will remove surface dust, there’s no substitute for regular, professional carpet cleaning.

The benefits of professional carpet cleaning

  1. As we’ve already mentioned, your vacuum cleaner will remove surface dust but it can’t reach dust which has settled inside the long, twisted fibres. Here at A1 Professional Cleaning we use specially designed, heavy-duty equipment which is powerful enough to extract all the dust from your carpets, leaving them deeply clean and not just surface clean.
  2. Cleaning is time consuming enough without having to spend time trying to remove ground in dirt and grime from your carpets! We are professionals in carpet cleaning and will use our expertise and specialist equipment to clean your carpets quickly and with the minimum of fuss, freeing up your time to get on with something more exciting!
  3. Not only does professional carpet cleaning offer outstanding results, it also provides a great way to restore your carpets without the expense of buying new ones. We can return your carpets to good-as-new condition even if they’re absolutely filthy, removing many year’s worth of dirt, grime and stains.
  4. Last and by no means least, carpets are expensive and so it makes sense to look after yours. Regular, professional carpet cleaning will help to extend the life of your carpets, ensuring they look clean and fresh for many years to come.

Enhance the beauty of your floors with our natural stone floor cleaning services

Natural stone floor cleaning Leeds

Stone floors are an unbeatable choice for your home, providing a naturally beautiful floor covering that’s tough enough to withstand pretty much anything. However, if your stone floor is going to retain its natural good looks, it’s important to ensure that it receives regular professional cleaning.

We have the expertise to clean the majority of natural stone floors including Yorkshire stone, slate, limestone, sandstone and marble. Although stone is tough, it’s important to bear in mind that because it’s a natural material, the use of harsh cleaning products should be avoided at all costs. Bleach, degreasers or vinegar, for example, can cause damage to the delicate materials which form the floor surface and this is why we only use specially developed products such as the Stonecare cleaning range.

To clean natural stone floors we use our hard floor cleaning machine which has been specially designed for use on natural flooring. We will then apply a stone sealing treatment or stain resistant solution which will impregnate the stone’s surface, protecting it from stains and dirt. Once the cleaning process is complete, your stone floor will look thoroughly clean and fully restored.
