Professional Carpet & Flooring Cleaning Contractors, Domestic, Commercial & Office, Brentwood
You may feel that you have done a good job after thoroughly vacuuming your carpets, but look a little closer. You may not think that contaminants in your flooring can have any impact on the air you breathe at home or work, but your carpets can play a big role in the quality of indoor air. All day every day your carpets and floor coverings are catching everything that falls to the ground including dust, hair, skin particles, food and beverage spills, crumbs, fur, dirt, leaves and bacteria. Not to mention whatever else is tracked in on shoes and paws. This is why making sure your carpet is properly cleaned is essential to healthy living.
Using a vacuum at least once a week will help to keep carpets looking nice by removing loose debris, hairs and other build up etc. But it is important to keep on top of the cleanliness of your carpet not only for its appearance but so that it doesn’t smell. With the amount of unwanted things a carpet will attract along with any ‘unfortunate accidents’ over the years, it is bound to have a slightly distasteful aroma! You and other occupants may not even be aware of this, as the nose becomes accustomed to some smells which constantly surround us. A professionally cleaned carpet will give a lasting, fresh and pleasant smell that will greet you and any visitors on entering your home.

Strange Taxes for Hair Powder Users in Billericay & Something for Everyone in Chelmsford
Although we may try to eradicate hair and dust from our carpets, these things once cost some of us money. There was, near the end of the 18th century, the introduction of a Hair Powder Tax! The hair powder was made from finely ground starch and sometimes tinted blue, pink or yellow. People could choose its perfume from lavender, orange flower and orris root. In places like Ramsden Heath, Ramsden Bellhouse, North Benfleet, Nevendon, Great Burstead and Bowers Gifford, records show that only a handful of people were required to pay this tax. However in the Billericay of 1795, 35 people had a certificate to show they had paid the tax and were free to wear Hair Powder. These consisted of 18 were women and 17 were men. The tax gives present day historians an insight into the affluence of certain areas within Essex.
