Are you in a carpet stain dilemma?

How much is the excess on your home (or business) insurance? £50…£100…more? Is it worth making a claim and risking a rise in your monthly premium? The alternative (and usually cheaper) solution is to call Stardust Carpet Cleaning and make use of our amazing ability to make carpet stains disappear like magic!

When you phone, we’ll ask you a few questions, including:

  • How old is the stain?
  • What is the spill, i.e. red wine…coffee…ink…?
  • Have you left it or have you tackled it yourself?

If you have tried to remove it, what method did you use?

  • How old is the carpet?
  • What type of carpet is it – natural or synthetic – long pile or short?

With this information we’ll be able to give you an honest answer to the question ‘can you get my stain out?’ In most cases it will be a resounding yes. Occasionally it will be a no. If you have no idea what the stain is or how it originated, it may still be possible to remove it, don’t give up hope just yet!

So, if you agonising over what to do about that nasty spill, pick up the phone now and tell us about it. We’ll do our best to put it right for you (see photographic evidence here of recent stain removal work
