Use only GRADE A Domestic carpet cleaning machines and chemicals
Our carpet cleaning operatives come fully equipped with the latest most advanced carpet cleaning machines and chemicals available for the domestic market. As everything we use is designed only for use in the home they are therefore harmless to people and pets. Because our machines are Grade A – they will suck up 90% – 95% of the water in the carpets and so this will considerably decrease the overall drying time. In well ventilated, heated rooms we would expect a standard carpet to be dry to the touch in 30-60 minutes after being cleaned.

How to effectively care for your carpets
Regular vacuuming of your carpets is essential for preventing damage to the fibres as the dirt and grit that can otherwise get worked into the pile will fray the fibres. Vacuums with revolving brushes are the most effective at dislodging all the embedded dirt. For loop-pile carpets use a standard suction head as this will prevent the carpet from “bobbling”.
Carpet manufacturers always recommend an annual steam clean to accomplish the above. Have Myhome do it or you could also hire out equipment.
Natural remedy for cleaning carpets
Remove wine or grease stains from carpet by lightly sprinkling area with baking soda. Dab it up and add a little more if necessary. Leave on until the wine is absorbed, then vacuum up any residue left.
How to clean natural flooring
All good quality natural floorcoverings should have a substantial latex back to prevent dust and debris falling through and ensure easy maintenance by vacuuming. A cylinder-type vacuum cleaner without brushes is the best choice for natural floorings to avoid damaging the fibres.
Most high quality natural floorings are sold with a stain inhibitor that protects them from dirt and prolongs there life, so ask your supplier for details of cleaning products for natural fibres. These should be used on stains immediately – not once the stain has been absorbed. Mop up with a clean cloth or kitchen paper. Don’t use carpet mousse or shampoo as these can cause natural floorings to shrink.
Consider hiring a professional cleaning company if you want to give your flooring a thorough clean, but make sure they use a dry-cleaning system as opposed to a wet on. Ask your retailer to recommend a firm.
How to clean wooden floors
Sweep wooden floors regularly, or use a vacuum cleaner with a brush setting.
Mop once a week or so with a well-wrung mop, using soapy cleaner specifically for use on wood. Don’t saturate the floor or allow water to stand on it as this can cause damage.
Wet-clean waxed boards sparingly and wax polish them to improve the patina. Dirty wax build-up should be removed with white spirit and the boards re-waxed. Treat engineered boards with oil or lacquer reviver, applied with a soft cloth.
Natural remedies for cleaning wooden floors
Remove scuff marks from wooden floors by rubbing them gently with a pencil eraser.
Bring out the natural colour of your wood flooring by wiping the surface with lemon oil and a dry cloth. However, this only applies to natural and waxed flooring, not varnished floors.
How to clean laminate floors
Laminate floors should be swept or vacuumed regularly. Using a damp cloth is fine, but never soak the floor with water – they’re designed to be water resistant.
Most spills on laminate can be removed with household cleaners but, if the stain is lipstick, ink or permanent marker, try acetone.
Never use scouring pads to remove stains when cleaning laminate floors, and remove any liquid stains from the floor as soon as possible.
How to clean stone floors
Stone will often have been treated before it left the factory. If not, it will stain easily so it’s important to seal it with a proprietary sealant or, for terracotta and slate, use linseed oil. Once sealed, clean it with a mix of mild detergent and water. However, it will need re-sealing at regular intervals to keep it looking its best.
Immediately wipe away any acidic spills.
Reconstituted stone needs to be sealed with a stain inhibitor then impregnated with a top coat of water-based sealant. It’ll need re-sealing every two years. Ask your manufacturer or suppler for specific care advice and suitable products.
How to clean ceramic tiles
Ceramic tiles can be cleaned with a mild detergent and water solution and do not require sealing. Damp-mop your ceramic tile with a standard, all-purpose cleaner. Dry the floor with a soft cloth to avoid streaks.
Never use harsh abrasive cleaners that might scratch the glaze.
How to clean flagstone, limestone and slate floors
Damp-mop flagstone or slate floors using either clear water, an all-purpose cleaning solution in warm water, or water to which fabric softener has been added. Wring the mop until it doesn’t drip, and apply it to the floor in slow, even strokes. Ask the manufacturer for recommend the appropriate cleaning product.
Wipe up spills on unglazed floors immediately or they might cause a stain.
Remove stubborn marks with white spirit, but always do a spot test first.

How to clean vinyls, linoleums and rubber floors
Vinyls, linoleums and rubber are hard wearing and easy to care for. The amount of cleaning and maintenance depends both on your lifestyle and the colour of the floor.
Vacuum or brush regularly to remove dust and grit that might lead to your floor being scratched, and follow with a weekly wipe with the cleaning agent recommended by your supplier.
Remove scuff marks by gently rubbing with a scouring pad – the sort you would use to clean non-stick cookware.
Clean the floor with mild detergent and water. Don’t use abrasive cleaners, which may leave a dull film on your floor. Be careful with spray polishes and other silicone-based products as they can make your floor very slippery, as can white spirit
