How to Remove Pet Hair

If you have pets your carpets and soft furnishings may get covered in hair, you may find that no matter how much you vacuum that you can’t get rid of the hair. We remove pet hair by using some specialist rubber brushes or a window squeegee, once collected we vacuum them up.

How to Remove Blood Stains

When dealing with blood stains make sure you wear gloves, the sooner you deal with the stain the more chance you have of removing it, always use COLD water. Use damp kitchen towels and blot the stain from the outside working in, you will see the stain wick up into the kitchen towel and keep repeating the process. Then place a couple of layers over any remaining stain with a heavy object on top and leave, any residue will wick up. For heavier, more stubborn stains call the professionals.
