Beautiful Homes have Beautiful Floors!
The flooring of any house is the first thing that gets noticed. Think about it! if you enter a space that has a very bright or vibrant flooring, would you not notice it immediately? In the same way imagine walking into a space that has extremely filthy and dirty marks all over the flooring, would you notice that? We may not realize it but when we walk into a room our mind notices every big and small detail around us and whatever looks ‘out of place’ or ‘different’ will always catch our attention. The flooring is one such big detail of any room! It cannot be missed and it’s impossible to ignore how it looks.
Your home is your asset, your most valued possession and something that you will always be proud of! It takes so much hard work, efforts and planning to be able to own a place you can call home. Owning a home is great but its equally important to take complete responsibility of its maintenance. Over time everything in a home needs a change or a cleaningor sometimes you just want to do it for yourself. When you walk in to your home you want things to be perfect, just the way you like it and just how you imagine your perfect home to be. The flooring of a home plays a very important role in keeping up the appearance and maintained look of a house.
Damaged or dirty flooring not only leaves a bad impression on your guests but even you yourself will not be happy to see one. Flooring can be done using so many different kinds of materials and so many different looks can be achieved, suiting ones tastes and choices. More important than the look is to understand it’s usability, its resistance to varying changes and understanding it’s specific cleaning techniques. Whatever the material is over time and use it will lose its initial look and shine. So what do you do if your flooring gets too dirty? Change it? Get a new one? Well, you don’t always need to change because sometimes cleaning services are all you need! You may be cleaning your floor everyday but a job done by professionals and experts will always be better- in fact brilliant!
Natural stone floorings are popular owing to their beauty and class but it requires great attention to care and cleaning. A new flooring can be a timeconsuming and expensive task but floorcleaning service will get the same effect in half thetime and money!

Our house is our asset and keeping up the looks andmaintenance must be our top priority. After all, a house speaks volumes about the owner!Stone flooring is a popular choice for the elegant and stylish look it provides but if kept dulland not maintained, it can completely damage the look!
Be it stone or tile, each kind of flooring has specific cleaning needs. One cannot just rely on water and a mop forever! While it is necessary to take care of basic daily cleaning, once in a while it is important to call for professionals. The more we keep ignoring the cleaning needs the more it keeps getting accumulated. Overtime this accumulated dirt becomes almost impossible to get rid off! Sometimes people try using heavy chemicals to do the job but that only makes it worse. Natural floor cleaning is a skill and requires the expertise of a professional to ensure no damage is done to the floor. Unnecessary chemicals and cleaners are not necessary! Sometimes people even make the mistake of using sharp tools to clean, only causing damage and maybe even break the flooring! Proper cleaning requires proper tools. Something only an expert has and knows how to use. Natural stone is sturdy and reliable but wrong methods will damage it beyond repair. So instead of cleaning you might need to go in for restoration services or even a change. Why add to your worries when a simple cleaning is the answer!
So the next time you look at your flooring and wonder if it will ever look new and sparkling clean again, it will! All you need to do is invest a little time and effort and rely on experts to help you achieve the look you desire. Your floor will be as good as brand new and your house will be back to its original charm. Yes, stone floors look beautiful and anything that’s that good deserves every bit of attention!
Tile and Grout Cleaning for the Perfect Look Forever
When you have a home of your own you want to make it look good and beautiful all the time! a home is where we come back after a long tiring day or the place we just sit and relax and watch the world go by. It’s our comfort zone, our personal space’ a place we call our OWN! Well, something as special as that demands special attention too. Keeping the home clean and sparkling is not a choice; it’s something one must do! You don’t want to be walking into a home that’s dirty, filthy and all the things you don’t want it to be! So what do you do?
While a general cleaning of the house is easy, there are specific things that require extra attention and care. The flooring is one such example. Cleaning your tile floor on your own is not as easy as you may think it is. While you may be cleaning it a little every day, overtime it becomes impossible as dirt keeps getting accumulated and more and more resistant to clean. Getting down to that by hand is a tough task! You will never be able to get desired results and you will not be satisfied! Hey, don’t worry! You can always get professional help to get the results! Professional tile and grout cleaning services help you get the ‘brand new’ look and finish.
Grout is a highly porous material and it therefore easily collects all the dirt, grime and every spill! This often makes it lose its original look and discolors the flooring. A daily cleaning process may not be effective on grout as one can’t reach deep enough for complete spick and span results. the dirt reaches deep within the grout lines and normal cleaning solutions and tools don’t have the power to reach deep within. Professionals and experts have the right products and equipment that get the job done! Your floor will get back to it’s original look and be just the way you want it to be.
Expert tile and grout cleaners achieve the look that no hand cleaning can ever get! There are several possible treatments that a floor could require and an expert will always assess the best possible one. Cleaning is of many kinds and different problems require different treatments. Allow a professional to inspect the treatment that works best for you. One needs to ensure that the service uses proper products as anything too harsh can damage the flooring further! High pressure water and vacuum cleaning may be all you need if you have been regularly relying on expert cleaning help but sometimes it could be more.
Today, it’s even possible to get a seal done over your tiled floors, post cleaning, to help it remain cleaner and sparkling for a much longer time. This seal stops the grime and spills to get to deep into the floor. For grout flooring one can go in for staining processes after cleaning to restore the original color and look.
The problem is people often directly mop a floor making the dirt stronger. It is necessary to first dry sweep or vacuum a floor before using a mop. This ensures the dirt does not go deep into the surface. It’s also very important to wash the mop after cleaning to ensure that it does not stick to the dirt. Sometimes, we may be using certain cleaning products that are very harsh only making our floor more and more damaged with every use. Always use natural cleaning products. Once in a while call a professional floor cleaning service to compliment your daily cleaning efforts. When it comes to flooring there is no one method that suits them all. Every different kind of flooring has different cleaning needs and you need to ensure you are not damaging your floor in efforts to clean it! That’s where a professional comes in, to help you understand your flooring, its needs and specific requirements. If the floor is left ignored for too long it can undergo severe damage that may be irrevocable. Unless you want to spend a large amount every few months getting new floors, it’s time you get professional cleaning.
Tile and grout floors are excellent and provide the look, durability and great resistance but if you don’t take care of it, it’ll lose all of that. It’s your home and your responsibility; you want it to be the perfect place that is exactly how you want it to be and clean is something everyone wants! I mean what’s the point of buying new things for the house when it all looks dirty and filthy! They say start your way up, and let’s start with the floor. A good floor compliments every other detail in the house.
Summer is here, and that means that, even in England, there is the occasional sunny day. The ice cream trucks are back with a vengeance, so whenever you take a break from work, you can buy an ice lolly or a cone full of soft vanilla ice cream with a Cadbury Flake bar sticking out of it. These wonderful sweet treats make the workday so much more pleasant.
The difference is that, when you were young, you could enjoy the wares of the ice cream truck while sitting on a park bench, wearing your bathing suit, while melted ice cream or ice lolly juice dripped down, and we none the worse for it. In today’s workaholic world, you have to rush back to the office with your frozen desserts, and while you have become an expert at avoiding letting food drip onto your work clothes, it is inevitable that a few drops will get on the carpet, and if left there, they will attract ants. And those are just the sunny days; there are still plenty of rainy days when people, despite their best efforts, can still track mud into the office from their shoes.
And that is just offices, where things tend to stay relatively clean. When was the last time you had a carpet cleaner clean the carpets in your house? Sure, you vacuum the carpets, but that only gets rid of the dirt that can be picked up by a vacuum cleaner. A household vacuum cleaner cannot undo the damage of the aforementioned ice lollies and the various other things that get spilled on home carpets. Even the most careful people will occasionally spill drinks on the carpet, and even if you wipe up the spill promptly, it still leaves a little bit of a stain. Eventually, these spills negatively affect the texture of the carpet. If you carpet looks lived in to the point that you are thinking of replacing it, it may just be the case that all you need is a professional carpet cleaning to make your carpet look like new.
If the above describes the carpets in your office or home, it is time to call a carpet cleaning service. If you live or work in and around Bristol, Portishead, Somerset, and Bath, then KSW Cleaners is the best choice. We are not only carpet cleaners, but we also offer cleaning services for other indoor and outdoor surfaces, such as ceramic, limestone, porcelain, quarry tiles, sandstone, slate, and Victorian tiles.
If you need a carpet cleaner for your home or business, then KSW Cleaning will send someone to you with our efficient and environmentally safe cleaning equipment. Our carpet cleaners follow a ten step process, which begins with inspecting the carpet to determine which products are needed to remove the stains. Then we remove the furniture from the room and pre-vacuum the carpet to remove solid particles of dirt. After that, we pre-spray the carpet to loosen the stains and then do the hot water extraction. Next, we deodorize the carpet. After that, the steps of the process are geared toward putting the room back in order and protecting future stains from forming.
We will clean the skirting boards and, if you wish, we will apply stain protectant to the newly cleaned carpet. Finally, we will dry the carpet and then put the furniture back in its original place in the room.
KSW has recently invested in the newest equipment for environmentally safe carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning. Do not put off getting your carpets professionally cleaned; it is easier and less costly than you think.
Green cleaners / Eco cleaning
Here at KSW, we are very proud to count ourselves among the few cleaning firms who contribute to a greener way of being clean.
We use green cleaning products whenever we can, 9 jobs out of 10 we use eco or green cleaning methods.
The only need for harsh chemicals arise when we have extreme deep cleaning to do say on a student oven or heavily stained floor or carpet.
So if your after a truly eco / green cleaning experience in Bristol & Somerset then KSW Cleaning are here for you.
With green cleaning in mind we thought we would give you some eco or green cleaning hints and tips:
Baking Soda Rules them All
There seems to be a cleaning product for every type of dirt in the house: windows and glass, bathroom, kitchen, carpet, wood. But here’s the secret: many of them are not only harmful, stinky and overpriced, but wholly unnecessary. In fact, most of the ingredients you need to clean your house effectively and safely smell divine, and you can find the majority in your larder. Baking soda is great to use to eliminate funny fridge smells, lifts odours from carpets (just leave for 20 minutes then hoover up), and mixes with warm water to clean almost anything.
Aloe Safe Pest Control!
No-one wants termites, lice, flies or ants breeding in their house, but especially in the summer, prevention and elimination can be tricky. We’ll go to any lengths to banish these unhygienic outbreaks, often employing the help of chemicals that not only damage the environment, but also are extremely dangerous for humans, especially the very young, the very old and the sick. But did you know that the Aloe plant has natural antibacterial properties that have an equally effective legacy without any of the risk?
To eliminate pests, simply crush an Aloe plant into warm water and leave until cooled. Spray onto infestations for quick action. As a preventative measure, mix borates (commonly known as Borax) with water and spray onto doors, wood and walls.
Green Landry Hints
After central heating, our laundry accounts for the second largest energy output from your household. A lucky few will have new, energy efficient washing machines that do a brilliant job of cleaning well, and cleaning green. For the rest of us, here is how to eliminate unnecessary energy from our homes:
- Get into good habits. This means don’t do small loads; wait until you have a large enough load to fill the washing machine. Don’t overload either, as clothes need space to spin around in order to get clean. Cold rinse at all times to save on hot water – it gets soap out of clothes just as well as hot water. Do several loads of washing at once, as the machine will have already heated the water so it will halve the energy output for subsequent washes.
- Shake it out! The best smelling and feeling clothes are those that have dried in a natural breeze, over time. Shaking out your clothes will negate the need to iron the majority of cotton, and reduce drying time.
- Strategically insulate: If you must use a tumble dryer, don’t put it in a garage or basement. It will work much less efficiently as it will have to do twice the amount of heating as it would in a warm room. Also, be sure to check your dryer exhaust vent regularly to ensure it closes properly. If outside air is getting in, the dryer is being forced to work too hard and again uses unnecessary energy.
- Unless it’s really dirty, stick to thirty! Most of us automatically switch up to 40º as this used to be necessary to get a decent clean. Now, 30º will do anything 40º will do, and save you about £100 a year to boot.
DIY Cleaning Products
Make your own wood polish
Wood polish can be expensive, and space consuming. Considering we don’t averagely clean our wood more than once a month, this stuff simply takes up space unnecessarily. Especially when it’s so simple to make your own:
- Juice a small lemon into a jar, then add one tablespoon of rapeseed or olive oil, and one of water.
- Seal the jar and shake until emulsified.
- Dip a clean cloth in the mixture and get polishing!
Natural, Gorgeous Surface Cleaner
There are many beautiful smelling surface cleaners you can make, that will eliminate germs and odours just as well as dangerous bleach-based products. Here is a link to some of the best. But our favourite has to be tea tree oil and lavender. Simply fill a 16oz spray bottle with 1/8 lavender, 1/8 tea tree essential oil. Fill the rest up with water, screw on the lid and hey presto, you’re ready to go!
Home Made Air Freshener
Sometimes, there simply isn’t time to clean away embarrassing odours, and we resort to shop bought aerosols that simultaneously damage the environment and remove any pleasant odours you might want to keep around. It’s amazingly easy to make your own air freshener: simply choose your ingredient (cloves, cinnamon and rosemary are always popular), boil, then bottle to spray next time you have inconvenient lurking smells. If you want to actually eliminate the odour, invest in some plants. These not only clean the air, but also create a fragrant serenity in your home to boot!
