As longtime professionals we know how you’ll been feeling about the problem stain. We’re here to liaise, advise and fix!

Want to know how this started? Years ago living in flats – well, drinks were spilled. We tried to fix the problems. Then called in supposed experts (who managed worse than we had, but knew how to charge). There had to be a better way.

It grew from there. We identified the correct chemicals and treatments for various fabrics etc, and the best equipment

Nowadays we use world-leading products, gear and tech to tackle the toughest stains. Our company owner Patrick Greig is an IICRC-Certified Technician (Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration, the leading international body). He’s also a recognised international trainer operating as far afield as China.
