Whilst the main reason for cleaning carpets is for a fresh clean home, some of the other reasons are to remove stains and grit and any allergens. Over the last few years it has become widely accepted that having your carpets cleaned on a regular basis can extend their life as well as provide a healthier environment for you to live in.

When I was carpet cleaning, some years ago, I used to carry a number of carpet cleaning systems in my van, so that I could choose the system that I thought would be most suitable for each situation.

At that time we used to provide what I called a Restoration clean or a maintenance clean.

The restoration clean was for fairly dirty carpets that needed a thorough clean to bring them back to almost their original condition.

The maintenance clean was for lightly soiled carpets that just needed freshening up.
