Dry Carpet Cleaning
I can offer you a low moisture carpet clean that may be beneficial to you if, for example, you have elderly relatives that need clean carpets, but want them dry straight away. In the main, I use hot water extraction (steam cleaning) as it is proven to give the best clean, but in some cases, dry carpet cleaning can get great results.
Preparing for your clean.
Once you have booked your required cleaning service, please make sure the floor is as clear as possible. I always use protective sheets when cleaning furniture and make sure the job is done with minimum disruption.
There is no need to vacuum the carpet or floor tiles as I take care of that too.
If there are any pets in the house, please be aware that the front door will be slightly ajar as hoses are connected to the van outside.
Carpets are dry within 1 and 6 hours, sofas dry between 1 and 12 hours and hard floor tiles that are cleaned and sealed can be walked on after 2 hours.
If you have any questions, just call me and fire away.
Dirtbusters are a family run carpet and sofa cleaning company in Liverpool and not a big franchise. The benefit of this in the main is that we can choose any cleaning products we feel are suitable for the job at hand. We also don’t have the expensive franchise fee’s that get passed onto the customer.
We strive to supply a superior deep cleaning, fast drying carpet, sofa, rug and leather cleaning service at a sensible price.
Eco friendly – detergent free cleaning solutions are used in order to provide you with a top quality safe clean that ‘doesn’t cost the earth’.
Quite often we are asked if we use Pure steam to clean carpets or upholstery. Well we don’t – as this will only cause damage. Delicate wool carpets as an example will be damaged irreversibly with pure steam, and fabric will show damage with the pile being set in the wrong direction with the steam partially melting the fibres.
Why not take a look around this website for more information on carpet and upholstery cleaning in Liverpool by Dirtbusters.
We advise you should (depending on traffic) have your carpets cleaned every 6 – 18 months. Even thorough vacuuming cannot remove 100% of the dry soil in your carpet, and any dirt that remains or builds up over time will be abrasive and will be like rubbing sandpaper against the fibres, in turn wearing the carpet out prematurely (especially in high traffic areas).
Well as we all know, outdoor air contains a lot of contaminates such as bacteria, car exhaust fumes, cigarette smoke, pollens as well as lots of other horrible things. When you and your family come home you bring these pollutants in with you, the good news is that your carpets and upholstery fabrics filter these nasties out of the air for you, in turn cleaning the air you breathe in your home. Clean your carpet and upholstery regularly to help clean up your ‘filters’!
When looking for a carpet and upholstery cleaning company you need to ask some questions. Are they fully trained and insured? Do they have testimonials from past clients? Are they a franchise? (more overheads to pay for) Is the price a final price? Some companies offer a low price only to add on extras once in your home, you may have seen leaflets advertising carpet cleaning in Liverpool at low low prices. No one can run a business on these low prices and they are always have added costs such as stain removal, deodorising etc. We run our cleaning business on customer satisfaction and are continuously being referred and invited back time and time again.
Leather furniture is quite often cleaned incorrectly. Using baby wipes can damage your leather suite as some contain alcohol and all tend to be high alkaline. Dirtbusters recommend a very lightly moist cloth to keep the dust off, and then a professional clean every year or so, followed by a conditioning protection cream.
No, we can restore most colour problems with your leather furniture. See here – Leather repair Liverpool
Yes.. It is a a really good way of protecting your carpet and furniture. You have more time to treat any accidental spills and areas with a lot of traffic such as hallways will also benefit from this treatment. Ask for a demonstration while we are cleaning your carpet or sofa.
This depends on the size – as an example a room 14 ft x 12 ft will usually take around a hour.
Absolutely not. Steam alone will not clean your items, it will infact damage them. We use hot water extraction (often incorrectly refered to as steam cleaning) and in some cases a cold water rinse. This is the final stage of cleaning after dry soil removal, pre-treating and agitation.
This is because it works much better than supermarket carpet stain removers. It will not bleach the colour from the carpet and is fully eco friendly and bio degradeable. It can also be harder to remove stains if supermarket cleaners have been used.
Ahh the discount carpet cleaners discount voucher.. here’s an insight as to how this works. The cleaning company needs to offer a 65% discount to qualify to be on a discount voucher site. So a £100 job is now a £35 job. The cleaners then have to give Groupon 50% of this..leaving a whopping £17.50 for £100 worth of carpet or upholstery cleaning. They sell lets say 150 vouchers? The cleaners are now running around like headless chickens rushing jobs to get through them, or turn to ‘upselling’ things such as a deep clean, deodourising etc..
Rug Cleaning Liverpool – Wirral
Do you have a rug that needs cleaning? You will be surprised to see just how much dirt can be built up in a rug. This is especially evident when you have no carpets in your home. I can help with all kinds of rug cleaning – Persian rugs, Indian rugs, shaggy rugs (that usually contain treasure!) can all be cared for.
Maybe you have a wool rug that takes a beating? Why not ask me about my stain guard, this is a great idea if the wool rug is in a high traffic area, or is in a place where spills are likely to happen.
