No, it is not mandatory for carpet cleaning companies to become members of the NCCA. However, if a company is registered with us it shows that they have taken the time and expense to ensure they are professional in their approach and in a position to offer the best possible service to their customers.
In most cases NCCA members will be happy to move furniture; however there may be an additional charge for this service. It is important that any valuable items or furniture containing valuables are moved by the customer, you should draw this to the attention or the person cleaning.
This is a common myth, today’s chemicals and detergents are manufactured to the highest specifications for quality and effectiveness. These will not lead to any rapid re-soiling. Detergents that are not designed for use on carpets and upholstery may cause re-soiling problems.
In every case, the best cleaning results are achieved by the use of chemicals. NCCA members may use solvents, powders, detergents and other solutions during the cleaning process. Manufacturers in the cleaning industry work to the highest specifications for quality and safety, designing products specifically for the cleaning of carpets and soft furnishings; and for safe use within the domestic environment.
Health and safety is paramount in the cleaning industry. Professional cleaning solutions are tested for their effects on the environment. NCCA members will also ensure that the relevant safety procedures are followed during the cleaning process. It is highly recommended that children and pets stay off of a damp carpet until it is completely dry, this will help prevent slip and fall hazards.
No guarantee can be made remove stains. Some stains permanently damage the carpet fibres and no amount of specialist cleaning will reverse this. Many NCCA members have received advanced training for spot and stain removal and will be able to deal with most problems. i pride myself in my stain removal abilities. If you have a stain you are concerned about, please feel free to discuss it with a member beforehand and they will be happy to advice.
If a carpet is properly installed, it is very rare that the cleaning process will cause it to shrink. NCCA members are advised to carry out a full inspection prior to any cleaning.
Drying time depends upon many things, including how soiled the item was, how much water was used, weather conditions, atmosphere in the home, etc. However, in most normal cases, carpets and soft furnishings should be dry within 6-8 hours. If required, use some specialist techniques to speed up the process can be used.
Many different methods exist and all cleaning methods are designed to produce good results, each has its place within the carpet cleaning industry. Some methods use water and others more mechanical action. More important however, is whether the employed technician has the required training to carry out the cleaning properly and safely. NCCA members have a recognised qualification in carpet and upholstery cleaning and have been trained to use various cleaning methods. They will be able to advice on the most appropriate method. That is required to achieve the very best results.
It is recommended that a professional cleaner is used. Many items are available to the public that are advertised for carpet and upholstery cleaning. However, along with these come many risks and the potential of causing irreversible damage. NCCA members have the correct training and knowledge, along with access to professional products that enable them to ensure that a correct and safe job is carried out and the best possible results can be achieved.
Most manufacturers recommend that carpets should be professionally every 12-18 months. Carpets should be cleaned on a regular basis, before they become heavily soiled. Allowing soil to build up will significantly reduce the life of a carpet.

We are members of the NCCA – The National Carpet Cleaners Association.

You will be amazed at the impressive results of our carpet cleaning service, as we utilise the best equipment and extensive training to deliver the best cleaning service every time. Although we are highly trained in spot stain removal, there can be stains that are permanent, and we will do our best to identify these and warn you beforehand. But in general, most of our customers are impressed by the effectiveness of our cleaning service.
This depends on lots of factors such as the pile density of the carpets being cleaned, the ambient temperature and air humidity, and air flow through the premises. Unlike many companies using underpowered equipment, our vacuum extraction machine has the suction to get your carpets almost dry after cleaning. We will recommend several ways to speed up the final drying stage, but with the heating on and some windows open, most of our customer’s carpets are usually dry within an hour of us leaving. If for any reason we anticipate the drying process to take slightly linger (in unheated or unventilated rooms) we will speed up the drying process with high powered fans and air movers.
At Roffey Cleaning we have spent many thousands of pounds over the years on our equipment, and the device we normally use for carpet cleaning is our Hot Water Extraction (or steam cleaning) machine.
This machine pumps highly pressurised water deep into the pile, completely rinsing out the cleaning solution that has been agitated into the carpet. This removes unwanted dust, debris and bacteria, providing relief for those of us who suffer from allergies and generally creating a cleaner, safer environment wherever Hot Water Extraction is used.
Hot Water Extraction doesn’t just offer the best deep clean on the market, but it’s also environmentally friendly and very efficient. It won’t expose you to the chemicals that carpet cleaning techniques employed by other companies do, and it will have your carpets dry in rapid time, causing minimum disruption to your home or business. Of course this is equipment that is being used by highly trained and experienced professionals, so we can get the best results for you carpets. We can clean deeper into the carpet to leave them cleaner and fresher which can make a huge difference to your home.
The most common problem you run into with cheaper, DIY-style devices is over-wetting. Rental machines rarely have the vacuum suction power to extract all the water that is absorbed by the carpet. This can lead to unpleasant odours caused by bacterial growth, and when that happens you’ll need to get a professional in as soon as possible to avoid having to shell out for an expensive replacement. At Roffey Cleaning we get the job done properly the first time, and we offer much better value for money than cheaper cleaning companies who use inferior equipment.
