Nothing signals the need for a really good carpet cleaning session than when you’ve had your grand children over – well apart from having some dogs to stay who don’t normally inflict themselves on your calm orderly home! There is something amazing about the speed and the spread of the mess that occurs after a long walk out in the countryside when you’ve had a winter’s day full of rain and slushy mud. I have this double occurence occasionally – only twice a year it must be said, but by golly I need help then. I always engage the services of a dedicated carpet cleaning agency – they really do have the right equipment and the experience to get deep down, the hairs come off the furniture too with some of their know how. If I don’t do this, I’m forever finding a vacuum full of dog hair for the next month.
