Professional Carpet Cleaning

Carpets are expensive, and regular cleaning is necessary to keep them looking new. Just as clothes need regular washing to keep them fresh and hygienic, carpets require periodic professional cleaning to keep them clean and healthy. Accumulated soil and grit are a major cause of reduced carpet life, and enable destructive and health harmful mites and bacteria to work unchecked.

Professional Rug Cleaning

Leaving you with Clean, Hygienic, and Fresh Carpet!

Carpet cleaning costs are minimal when you consider the replacement cost of carpets and soft furnishings, so cleaning make economic sense too.

Carpet CleaningNothing protects the carpets more in than a professional cleaning by CIR the Carpet and Leather Specialists! With us your carpets is cleaned in accordance with the industry standards. A healthy home or office starts from the ground up with a clean carpet! Our cleaning equipment combined with the unique cleaning process will ensure your carpets are cleaned thoroughly. Steam cleaning is suitable for all types of carpet.

Steam is a naturally powerful cleaning force that leaves no toxic residue on surfaces, and does not discolour clothing. Even emitted at low pressure, the heat of steam alone is able to rid your home of unseen allergens and bacteria as well as visible dirt and grease.

Here at CIR the carpet and Leather specialists we use the “Responsible Care system of cleaning”. For customers with allergies and asthma our objective is to clean all corners of the house to remove allergens particularly dust mites and pet dander. Dust mites are small enough to ride on the back of a flea and it is their scales and droppings that trigger allergic reactions. Since the sizes of these allergens are less than three microns even the home vacuum with a hepa filter cannot capture them as they fit through the pores of the filter.

Because people with allergies and asthma tend to be highly sensitive to chemicals, we use Master Blend Responsible Care plant-based prespray and rinse agents for cleaning, and a powerful fragrance-free deodorizer.

The truth is….Dirty carpets will make you, your family, and your friends sick!

Here at CIR the Carpet and Leather Specialists we have a 5 stage carpet cleaning process:

Rug Cleaning & Care Tips

The best way to look after a rug is to keep it from getting dirty in the first place. Bare-foot traffic is much easier on a rug than an outdoor shoe and leaving your shoes at the entrance to the house tracks in much less dirt.

A rug can last a lifetime if cared for properly. Although you do need to get your rugs professionally washed and cleaned periodically, you can take extra care of your rugs as follows:

Rotate your rug from time to time for even wear.

Vacuum on a regular basis.

Use a quality underlay, pad or cushion to allow for cleaning and prevent slippage.

Clean your rug only when it really needs it.

Remove outdoor shoes when entering the house.

Remember that regular vacuuming is best to keep your rugs in good condition. Dirt removal is essential as the sharp edges of dust particles have a very abrasive affect on rug fibre.
