It’s important for our clients to understand why we give a price range when quoting to clean upholstered furniture, carpets and rugs over the phone. What the customer may guess how heavy the dirt may be, when experts arrive at the location with a trained eye it’s often the case that it will take longer than the lowest price quoted.

No Ripoff Prices – Protecting Our Reputation
Which would you rather have – a cheap clean that’s at the lower budget end? A quick clean for a few quid?
Or would you rather pay for a professionally serviced deep steam clean with the best results that our superior truck mounted system can perform?
No heavy lifting – it’s been known that we have been booked way out of area only to find a single client expecting us to rearrange their home, clean their carpets and replace all the furniture. We are not prepared for this and we are happy to make this clear to all of our clients; Home, Office, Landlords, Shops, Domestic and Commercial.
Superior Products, Equipment and Cleaning Skills
We use high grade cleaning fluids, preparing the surfaces in advance of beginning to clean to loosen ground in dirt, liquid and food stains.
The number of hours is what we quote for, our minimum call out price is now £55 to identify for potential clients with a champagne taste and a lemonade budget. Years ago we used to compete with the cheaper companies locally, nowadays in 2019/2020 we take great pride in our pricing structure.
With our minimum price in mind it’s simple for us not to engage in price matching practices or offer discounts (unless it’s a special deal announced on the Crawfords Facebook Page). This means that you can be confident upon arrival at your premises you will join the ranks of our repeat customers who are delighted with the depth of cleaning services. We always offer outstanding customer care and honest advice.
Before and After Photos – Bristol Tenant Sofa Bed – Landlord Cleaning Services
This is why we estimate over the phone an upper and lower cost to expect to pay for this client in Bristol – over the phone in Weston-super-Mare it’s impossible to accurately provide a definite cost (which is why we prefer to conduct an on-site visit to quote an accurate price) however it was cleanable with extra effort when we arrived at the rented property.
You can identify from the photos the “Before – Afterwards” the difference is plain to see:

As much as we’d all like our carpets to be in tip top condition 24/7, life can happen, bringing with it little spills and stains along the way. That’s why we’ve put together a list of top carpet cleaning hacks that will come in handy if you don’t have a carpet cleaner immediately to hand.
Don’t rub stains
When you rub a stain, it causes particles to separate and become ground into carpet fibres, which will then lead to premature breakdown of those fibres. This is obviously bad news for your carpet. However, if you blot your stains rather than rub them, you will be able to put a small amount of pressure on the stain which will help to soak it up. The best way to blot a stain is to work from the outside of the stain inward. If you blot the stain the other way, you could cause the stain to spread further.
Freeze trodden in gum
We’ve all been in the situation where we’ve unknowingly trodden in chewing gum and walked it into our home. Annoying for us, and bad news for our carpets! So how can you get rid of any gum without ruining your carpet? Ice cubes. Freeze the gum with ice cubes for about 30 seconds, and once the gum is frozen solid use a spoon to lift the gum upwards, whilst carefully trimming it away from the carpet (cutting as close to the gum as possible.)
Whether it’s from an over-exaggerated blowing out of the candles on a birthday cake, to everyday candles burning away, it can be quite easy for wax to find its way into your carpet and stay there. However, with this handy hack, any melted in wax will be gone in no time. First you’ll need to grab your iron and a white cloth. Place your white cloth over the melted wax and put your iron on top. This will warm up the wax, making it easy for you scrape the wax up with a butter knife.
Combat crushed sweets and candy
Whilst we enjoy our sugary treats from time to time, our carpets aren’t too keen. The best way to remove trodden in sweets and food is to try and scrape it out with a brush or butter knife, and then use and sponge and water to get the sugar out of the carpet. If you don’t remove all of the sugar then your carpet will attract dirt and debris more easily.
We love our pets, but their hair can cause our carpets problems. Simply vacuuming is not enough, but that’s ok. All you need to do is don a pair of rubber gloves and rub the carpet until your bring the hair up in clumps. If you don’t have any rubber gloves you could use something like a squeegee.

It’s the carpet type chosen by the home owner that is the deciding factor. Light and bright shows all the dirt polypropylene or nylon construction helps the dirt to be removed much easier than with a wool mix.
Polypropylene is a synthetic construction and doesn’t absorb dirt in to its colours but wool is a natural product and will absorb any spills and dirt making it much more likely that residual staining will remain. Call / Text 07815 814128 for free honest advice.
All end of tenancy carpet cleans are completed with the same time effort and pride as any other carpet clean carried out and the results speak volumes.

We found this great article on WikiHow to help remove red wine stains spilled on carpets.
Salt – the 3 step solution to cleaning carpet spills
Pour salt over the stain while it’s still wet.
A good dabbing job will take most of the wine out of the carpet, but usually not all of it. To help get the rest out, try covering the stained spot with a generous portion of salt. The salt granules will gradually draw the moisture in the stain out of the carpet over the next few hours.
Since the salt works by absorbing the stain’s moisture, this is much less effective for dried stains. If your stain is getting dry, pour a little water on it first before adding the salt.
Let the salt sit.
As it absorbs the wine, the salt will gradually turn pinkish. You’re ready to proceed when the stain seems almost completely dry. However, longer treatments aren’t going to make things worse, so if you have time to spare, feel free to let the salt sit overnight.
Discard the excess salt and vacuum up the carpet.
Scoop away the loose salt with a spoon and throw it out. Use a vacuum to suck up the fine particles that remain and get your carpet looking brand-new again. The stain should be gone or at least greatly diminished.
If a salty residue remains after the first vacuuming, just dampen the area with a little cool water and vacuum again to restore its natural texture. Read the original article here.
Contact us for help with the more stubborn of stains and complete property cleaning services.
We have had over 7 years experience with handling the sensitive nature of hoarder property cleanups and restoration. Some mental issues include the feeling of not being able to release, and don’t like to throw things away. Often this is coupled with a restricted access in their garden to the bins or to hire a skip. Crawfordsprc respect each and every job requirement and provide high levels of dignity whilst cleaning a property.
Other reasons include situations whereby a lady was no longer mobile and was unable to pick up dropped items onto the floor around her property. Whilst it could be considered awful, working with less able people who drop coffee, soup or other food items it’s impossible to clean without help.

Here at Crawfords we are continuing to help people in their homes to start afresh or reduce the impact of waste and collected items cluttering the rooms due to ill health or a mind set that stops the owner or tenant from being able to clean these areas for them selves.
Cleaning Help with Dignity
We sympathise with clients that have fallen at home through bad hips, knees, backs etc and are unable to pick up items that fall to the floor and are not retrievable at that time. We are not judgemental and are here to help.
Most of our clients wish to have a fresh start and just need a clean sweep of rooms to bring them back to some sort of manageable state, others decide enough is enough and reduce room clutter by throwing out the unwanted items for more freedom in the home, whichever and for whatever reason we are here to help.
Any waste we remove is disposed of through a local recycling centre and as we have a waste carriers licence we ensure all is disposed of legally, respectfully and responsibly.

Influencers like Mrs Hinch, who to date has 1.4 million Instagram followers, have somehow managed to glamorise typically mundane tasks.
And as they continue to post cleaning demonstrations using their favourite cleaning products and tools, retailers have noticed a dramatic increase in cleaning product sales across the UK.
Lorna McDonald, store manager of B&M on Bangor’s Main Street, told BBC News NI: “We’ve noticed there are a lot of younger people coming in and buying cleaning products, but there has been a rise in general in recent months.
“If you’ve got a following like Mrs Hinch on Instagram, we have to be prepared and have the products that are recommended if we want to increase our sales, especially as the high street is a bit dead at the moment.”
Minky, an online company that produces cleaning equipment noticed a sharp rise in sales after Mrs Hinch endorsed one of their products in unpaid Instagram posts.
They told BBC News NI: “We’ve seen a 10,000% increase in demand from consumers since the end of June this year and an exponential increase in demand from retailers, with no signs of slowing.
“In fact, demand has been so high that stock is selling out as quickly as it goes on sale.”
Easho, a wholesale website for household products who are in paid partnership with Mrs Hinch, says that the cleaning craze has helped their sales.
“We are now seeing the equivalent of ‘The Delia Effect’ on cleaning products, with growth of up to 200% on some of the most recommended items,” said a spokesperson.
As well as internet retailers, high street shops have also noticed a higher footfall of customers with cleaning products in their baskets.
‘Tidy home, tidy mind’
Katie Colwell, from Donaghadee in County Down, says cleaning has become “one of my friend group’s most common topics of conversation”.
And it’s all because of social media.
The 27-year-old nurse told BBC News NI: “Embarrassingly, I spend hours watching social media influencers cleaning.
“Among my friends, we talk about which products we have all tried and whether we rate them or not and what tips we have picked up from different social media influencers.
“I am guilty of running to the nearest pound shop to grab the products which I have seen on Instagram to try myself, which has meant I now have enough disinfectant to mop eight football pitches and have them smelling of fresh linen or cranberry and orange.”
But Miss Colwell says her fiancée isn’t convinced by the new hobby.
“He thinks I’m bonkers when I come home, excited to try out my newest cloth or cleaning product, and spend hours cleaning on my days off, but I find it therapeutic and a good way to de-stress,” she said.
“A tidy home is a tidy mind.”
Richard Hopping, an analyst for market research agency Mintel, told BBC News NI: “Our data shows that 39% of cleaners feel stressed when their homes aren’t clean, so promoting the benefits to mental wellbeing through cleaning could be a real factor in why influencers and cleaning are proving so popular.”
@thesecretcleaner is an anonymous Instagram account who posts regular cleaning tips and has nearly 10,000 followers.
They believe that for many people the online cleaning world provides a “virtual community” for people who may feel isolated.
“When I started the account, I wasn’t working and I found that cleaning kept me sane, kept me going.
“For me, cleaning is a type of mindfulness. You’re focussing on one thing, you’re in the moment and you feel like you have achieved something.
“You have people who support you and don’t think you’re weird for posting videos of you cleaning! It’s a hobby!”
But like many things on social media, trends tend to come and go, and some predict the cleaning phenomenon may not stand the test of time.
Niamh Taylor, director of Northern Ireland digital marketing agency Digital 24, said: “Some people have a problem with the amount of chemicals and plastic used to keep people’s home squeaky clean.
“Others just do not get why you’d want to watch someone polishing their sink and putting clothes away every night.”
She added: “I don’t think this phenomenon will be as popular throughout 2019 as realistically, Insta-trends are short lived and cleaning is just not ‘Instagrammable’.”
The week started with a clean to the arms of a sofa that were going to be recovered at a great expense if cleaning didn’t work.
Two cleans later and it’s saved from the bin and another delighted customer in Weston super Mare at a fraction cost compared to re upholstering them.
The carpet cleaning pictures below are from a local flat that a smoker had discoloured but using the right fluids and correct methods The discolouration and smell was pretty much erased saving costly replacements.
Locally we do recommend Mogg & Sons are specialists with re upholstering furniture.
