The length of the job will vary depending on what is being cleaned. Our office staff will be able to give you a good indication when you are booking in.
Drying times vary considerably from 4-12 hours so it is a little harder to give a solid indication, however, the more heavily soiled a carpet or suite of furniture is, the longer it will take to dry. The weather has a part to play too: warm breezy days are perfect for allowing speedy drying times. It is also important to have an airflow in the room, without that, it will take longer to dry. While not essential to stay off carpets when they are drying, we do advise you to exercise caution if walking from the damp carpet to a hard floor such as wood or marble, as it can be slippery underfoot.

All of our technicians are NCCA trained on how to clean a variety of different fabrics and are knowledgeable on:
Because of the sensitivity of some fabrics there are a number of different methods of cleaning. The more robust fabrics can usually be machine cleaned while hand cleaning services may be appropriate for the more delicate fabrics. The technician will always do a patch test on each fabric before beginning to ensure that the best method is used.
Fabric manufacturers will often specify “dry-clean only” on a fabric. This is because there would be minimal risk with dry cleaning so they are not liable for any mishaps with a wet cleaning method. The problem with that is that dry cleaning is not as effective or efficient as wet cleaning and doesn’t tend to get as good results. However, many fabrics labelled “dry-clean only” are in fact perfectly safely wet-cleanable. A knowledgeable and trained technician will be able to determine whether or not it can be safely wet cleaned.
We specialise in upholstery cleaning of sofas, couches, chairs, armchairs, recliners and chaise longues. Occasionally we get other types of furniture pieces and we are happy to advise on the appropriate care. With proper professional care your living room, dining room and bedroom soft furnishings will give you pleasure for years to come.
Drying times vary considerably from item to item but in general with a good airflow in the room, we would expect a drying time of 6-12 hours. We recommend keeping windows open in the room to improve the drying time.
The perfect time to stain protect your carpets and upholstery is when they are brand new or if you have just had them cleaned.
New carpets and upholstery are usually a fairly sizable investment and in order to keep them in the best condition for as long as possible, we highly recommend getting the stain protector applied as soon as possible after they have been delivered.
There is still considerable value in having a protector applied to a freshly cleaned carpet or suite as it will help keep it look good for longer and extend its lifetime. After application, regular vacuuming and immediate attention to stains and spills will keep your furniture and upholstery looking cleaner longer.
The stain protector works by coating the fibres of your fabric or carpet with an invisible shield. This barrier helps prevent oil and water-based substances from penetrating and can buy you valuable time in order to grab a towel or cloth to absorb up the spill. It also helps prevent general grime and grubbiness from penetrating the fibres, meaning that soil can be more effectively removed when you have a deep clean done.
No, the stain protector is a great help for keeping your fabrics and carpets well maintained, but it is not bulletproof and certain substances may still mark or stain your carpet. Unfortunately, no single protector can protect against every kind of stain or spill. A few substances will defy even the most effective protector, i.e. bleach, some food colouring dyes etc. Our stain protector protects against most water and oil based spills and soiling. It’s good to remember even if you have a stain, we are more likely to be able to remove it if protector has been applied.
The stain protector does not change the appearance or feel of your carpet or upholstery in any way.
Having a stain protector applied to your carpet or upholstery provides you with fantastic value for money in terms of maintaining the quality of different silks and fabrics. It helps to prevent long term damage from a number of factors such as spills, pet damage, daily wear and tear, while keeping your home looking fresh and in top condition. It is a proven, robust type of seal which will prolong the life of your sofas and carpets – both in the home and in commercial/office settings.
The length of time a stain protector remains effective will depend largely on the amount of traffic an area gets – the hall of a public building or the reception area in an office may get substantially more use than a spare bedroom in your home, for example. On average, carpets and upholstery are cleaned every 1-2 years. The effectiveness of the stain protector will diminish every time furnishings are cleaned using Hot Water Extraction. We recommend that a top-up be reapplied after each professional clean.
Usually it is unnecessary to reapply the protector to the entire area that has been cleaned. For example, the carpet underneath your couches or piano is unlikely to need it. Similarly, the back and sides of your suite usually do not need a top-up application.
