Carpet and Upholstery

Preventive maintenance helps to prolong your carpet life. It can improve your carpet's overall appearance and reduces the need for complicated, maintained processes. The preventive maintenance process for carpets includes vacuuming, spot removal and using walk-off mats.

Steam cleaning is one of the best deep-cleaning methods for carpets. It uses a mixture of hot water and chemicals to clean the dirt and debris that have sunk into the carpet. 

It is recommended for carpets to be cleaned, using a vacuum, around twice a week, and for carpets to be deep cleaned every 6-12 months. 

Steam cleaning works by heating the water past its boiling point, and it is then pushed out through a nozzle, brush or other attachment as pressurised steam. This kills dust mites and cleans dirt, mould, staph and other harmful bacteria.

The length of time it takes to do an end of tenancy clean will depend on the size of the property and how dirty the property is. On average, a 2 bed flat, with only one level, would take 2 cleaners around 5 hours. 

If your tenancy has been signed after 1st June 2019, then charges for a professional clean are no longer included in the tenancy agreement. Tenancy agreements signed after 1st June 2020 state that tenants will no longer be requested to pay for the professional cleaner by the landlords. 

Cleaning is one of the most common reasons for deductions from deposits. 

Kitchen Deep Cleaning

There is strict legislation in place to ensure that kitchens meet the necessary hygiene standards. These can be checked at any time by the local authorities, food standards agency, trading standards and environmental health officers. If these standards don't comply with both the food safety act 1990 and the food hygiene regulations 2006, it could result in a loss of business or large fines. 

Unclean kitchens can also cause bacterial contamination, pest infestations and disease spreading, which causes harm to customers and employees.

Extractor fans can accumulate grime when used a lot without cleaning. If the filter for the extractor fan isn't cleaned properly, this can massively put possible future tenants off. 

It is recommended to clean your extractor fan every 6 months. You can either clean it yourself or hire a professional cleaner to come and clean it twice a year. This helps the fan work more efficiently, reduces the risk of fires, and improves your kitchen hygiene.
