Maintaining a high level of appearance with minimal resource, chemical and water
Maintains a clean and consistent appearance as well as using less water and detergent is what interim cleaning is all about. By focusing on a cleaning programme that is allows for interim cleaning will reduce the frequency for restorative and deep cleaning.
Consider encapsulation cleaning and spray extraction to restore your carpets appearance and for those hard floors focus on scrubbing followed by polishing.
Intensive cleaning designed to restore the carpet/finish as close as possible to its original state
For those times when restorative work is needed due to wear and tear over the years. It’s only restorative cleaning that will bring your floors back to life, leaving them looking brand new.
