Streetly Sofa Cleaner Applauded

Why was the number one Streetly sofa cleaner, applauded? Simple. Its because we saved a client a lot of money by expertly cleaning their sofa, which meant they didn’t have to get a new one.  In addition with the cost of living rising no one can afford to waste money.

Saving upholstery from the tip means we save our clients money, it’s part of our job and we do it all the time.  This means our clients are absolutely amazed at what we can do.  This blog sets out examples of carpet and sofa cleaning in Streetly. Jobs that have literally saved our clients hundreds, if not thousands of pounds.

In addition to residential homeowners, we work for landlords and commercial businesses including bars and restaurants. Above all it doesn’t matter whether we are cleaning a sofa for a hairdressing salon, or chairs in a church if we can save the client money, we do.

Streetly Sofa Cleaner Commercial Cleans

The image below shows seats we saved at a bar. The chairs were in storage and heavily soiled, as a result of hand grease and drink spills. We were able to completely remove all the soiling and staining.

Hand and head grease mean the Streetly sofa cleaner has to work extra hard on headrests and armrests. Human grease is the number one cause of furniture soiling.  Dye transfer causes a lot of soiling too please see our separate blog on this.

Look at the hand grease image below. Because hand grease builds up gradually you don’t notice it until you turn a cushion over. This results in a phone call from people who think they will have to buy a new suite.

This is wrong because we use a wide range of different cleaning methods and the capability to remove the grease from the upholstery. Our technicians are well trained and we pride ourselves on being the best Streetly sofa cleaner, this means we save our clients the expense of new furniture.

Carpet Cleaner Streetly Relies Upon

We save heavily soiled upholstery, we also save carpets and rugs. For example, the rug below is valued at £9,000 but it was smoke and soot damage in a house fire. It’s made from Tibetan silk and wool. We used our fine fabric cleaning expertise to fully restore it.

In conclusion, look at our Gallery for more examples of furniture and carpets we’ve saved from the rubbish tip. And above all, why as the Streetly sofa cleaner applauded for our work. We believe it is much better for our clients and the environment if we can bring expensive things like home furnishings back to life.

Dry Carpet Cleaner In Streetly – What You Need To Know

dry carpet cleaner streetly

Are you looking for a dry carpet cleaner in Streetly? If so, our first question is why? This is because dry carpet cleaning is not always the best way to clean your carpet.  Dry carpet cleaning should only be used for lightly soiled carpets. We recommend it for maintenance cleans, not for removing heavy dirt and stains.

Some carpet and upholstery cleaners only use one cleaning method. So, you may have been told by a dry carpet cleaner in Streetly it’s what you need. At Knight & Doyle we always visit the home or business property to see the job. This is so we see exactly what the carpet is made of the stains and the level of dirt.  By doing this we can tell which cleaning method, or combination of cleaning methods will be suitable to get the best results. We would never recommend dry carpet cleaning for an annual deep clean.

Dry Carpet Cleaning & Pet Stains

If you are considering using a dry carpet cleaner in Streetly to treat pet stains or bodily fluid stains, think again. Dry carpet cleaning will not remove urine, blood or vomit. It will spread the stain over a wider area.  It will look and smell clean when the technician leaves, but the smell will return once the carpet is dry.

Should You Use A Dry Carpet Cleaner In Streetly?

We will never tell you your carpet needs cleaning if it doesn’t. Our honest approach is what brings our clients back year after year.  Our quotations are completely free of charge and without obligation and because we invest in the best cleaning techniques, we have seven different cleaning methods to choose from.  This also means that we have many combinations of cleaning solutions to ensure you get the very best results.

These are the cleaning methods or combinations of cleaning methods we have at our disposal.

  • Dry Carpet Cleaning for carpets not heavily soiled / regular maintenance

Cleaning Fine Fabrics

Cleaning Fine Fabric Rug

Cleaning Fine Fabrics is something other carpet and upholstery cleaners walk away from. Maybe the thought of cleaning £300/sq meter fabrics has them running for the hills! We have no problem cleaning expensive oriental rugs and other fine furnishings. We do this because we are properly trained and have the right equipment to carefully clean fine fabrics.

Knight & Doyle owner, Rich Doyle has recently completed a Fine Fabrics course.  On the course he enhanced his skills by firstly learning how to identify fine fabrics, and then how to clean them.  When we talk about cleaning fine fabrics we mean silk, velvet, sea grass and other natural and synthetic fibres. Rich has been cleaning fine fabrics for years, this course is an example of the on-going training we invest in.

In addition to training we invest in equipment. For example horsehair furniture brushes, velvet carding brushes, lint & pilling brushes and other specialist tools to carefully clean fine fabrics.

Cleaning Fine Fabric Pros & Cons

All fibres can be divided into two categories, that’s natural and synthetic.  Natural fibres then get divided into protein fibres and cellulosic fibres.  Each kind of fabric has pros and cons. For example, wool is a protein fibre because it comes from an animal. Wool is good because it absorbs dye really well, so you get some stunning carpet colours. But, this absorbency means it stains easily and is chemically sensitive.

Silk is lightweight and stretchable, which is good. However, if a filament gets pulled during cleaning this can be a problem.

Velvets are made with synthetic and natural fibres. They feel soft to the touch but water can cause staining and cleaning problems.

Cleaning Expensive Fabric Doesn’t Have To Be Expensive

We are trusted to clean carpets, rugs and upholstery from stately homes but we don’t charge premium prices for the privilege.
