Q.Can your give me a quote over the phone? A. Firstly don’t be fooled into special offers 4 rooms cleaned at £50, rarley this is the price you pay on the day.It is impossible for a reputable carpet cleaner or cleaner to give an honest quote over the phone and also for you to assess them. Moreover low costs means low power cold water machines and undesirable chemicals if any that soak the carpet for days. It is advised that Carpet Doctors technicians be on site for the final quote per square metre (m2) due to condition of the floor or upholstery, and level and type of soiling of carpet/upholstery, this is to get the true picture of spoilage and pre-treatment needed, as well as the actual size of rooms, stairs , hallway etc.. as sometimes this can be very much misrepresented over the phone.
Q. Have i got to do anything before the carpet clean? A. Yes It is best to hoover and clear the floor of any small or large items, and clear large furniture, the technicians will not move larger furniture as this may incur extra charges. Even though the technicians have an industrial hoover your carpet should be recently hoovered before we add biodegradable pre-spray solution. The pre-spray treatment breaks down soiling and spots (impurities) within the carpet or upholstery before the actual hot rinsing and steam cleaning.
Q.Will all the stains be removed? A. Our technicians are highly professionals and only use professional cleaning solutions to achieve the best results possible. All cleans includes deodorisers, a double enzyme pre-spray, and spot stain removers. However unknown or aged or set stains cannot be guaranteed to be removed.
Q.How long will the carpets take to dry? A. Even though it is fine to walk on the carpets the drying time is between 4 and 8 hours, depending on the level of soiling and temperature of environment.
According to new research health related topics by Carpet doctors. Evidence suggests that even simple house hold cleaning chores can send blood pressure and stress levels soaring,by following the link http://www.carpet-health.org/ one will find evidence based research supporting the benefits of clean and safe carpets etc., a prerequisite for a “clean filter for life”. A very good article can be found here http://www.articlecity.com/articles/environment_and_going_green/article_1140.shtml (enjoy)
One such by Pittsburgh School Of Medicine recruited 113 men and women in full-time work. The researchers stated “the perceived responsibility for household tasks, rather than the time spent doing those tasks, is what is most is distressing.”
The findings, published in the Journal Psychosomatic Medicine 2010, suggest it’s not the workload itself but the stress about how to cope with it that causes the damage. The strongest link with high blood pressure came from domestic chores done, such as cleaning. Additionally in a longitudinal survey completed by Discovery Home & Health (2008) the data revealed that 57% of women reported that cleaning exhausted them particularly as 71% had jobs.
Moreover follow this link for papers, qualitative & quantitative data can be found http://www.ciriscience.org/. Researchers believe the repetitive nature of cleaning, for example, may add to stress-related blood pressure problems rather than alleviate them. As withde-cluttering and cleaning having them done will save you more time and stress, sweetest Lily assures us that it helps to create a more relaxing and snugly home environment XX.

Handy Tips for Tackling Stains
Firstly act quickly as leaving the stain for too long, the harder it is to remove. Try to get as much of the spillage up. Scrape solids off with a spoon. Blot up as much of the liquid as you possibly can with plain white kitchen towels working from the outer edge of the stain towards the centre. Do not use coloured towels as this runs the risk of dyes running into the carpet or upholstery. Press down on the towel, dabbing either with your foot or gently with your hand if dabbing on upholstery, and repeat as many times until a fresh towel comes up dry.
Never soak the stain but gently blot it with warm water from the kettle, as tap water can leave a mark. Beware of putting water on upholstery as it can leave a watermark. Dab rather than scrub as you can permanently damage your carpet or upholstery. Try not to use foam based stain removers as they leave a tacky deposit that invites dirt causing colour fading.
Feng Shui Tip
If there is confusion and disarray in your house and things are in a muddle and not as they should be, then Feng Shui should certainly provide many good pointers to sort things out and also give sense of well being and energy flow within the house and help you achieve some order where it is needed, whether it be in living areas or office space.
In the office area it is important to create the feeling of order and open areas should be free of clutter. Start with the desk and the chair or bed. You should be in a position to welcome visitors whilst keeping that sense of proportion by facing the doorway, seated at the desk in a comfortable chair, giving that impression to those entering, that they are coming into your space, often by crossing a mat placed between your desk and the door. Lighting is important, with the window to the left side, and other lighting should be indirect and possibly of a soft and warm nature. This can be enhanced by the use of smaller items such as desk items and perhaps flowers and similar things to attract good fortune and disable negative energy. Feng Shui encourages the use of the orange as a suitable colour, as it should show that there is purpose and planning. The desk itself should be in good order, and papers and other necessary items as well as scented candles should be organised methodically all to enhance good motivation.
Having achieved good organisation and clarity in the office/rest space, it is important to ensure that this carried through into the future as it is important to always feel prepared for each day as it arrives.
