Final Rinse Procedure (applicable to all above methods of stain removal)

Whilst our stain removal guide may be basic, it should help prevent some quite common and expensive DIY stain removal damage. Unfortunately, there can never be a guarantee of complete removal of a stain, but the correct routine will give us, if called in, the best possible chance of success.

REMEMBER: Act Quickly. Scrape up solids, blot up liquids. Take plenty of time, it is worth the effort. Mix the solution accurately and test it on an out of the way piece of carpet. Always work from the outer edge of the stain to the centre. Dab or blot rather than scrub or rub. And, most importantly, NEVER OVER-WET.


We are aware that some new carpets have been subjected to anti-static and soil-resistant treatments. Even when these have been applied, it is wise to follow the stain removal procedures suggested.

Please don’t hesitate to call us if you would like some advice regarding stains/spills, or if you would like us to come and assess the situation ourselves.

This is our Quality Guarantee to you - If for any reason you feel the work is not carried out to your total satisfaction, you can simply call and we’ll arrange for any areas to be re-cleaned. If you’re still unhappy we don’t charge you - not one penny!
