Carpet & Floor Cleaning
A new carpet represents a substantial investment for any household or business, and cleaning it regularly can extend it's life by years making it more cost effective, as well as keeping it clean & healthy.
Regular vacuuming is the easiest way to remove loose dirt and dust but inevitably soil will cling to the carpet fibres leaving your carpet dull and lifeless, taking away the natural appearance. Our carpet washing method uses up to date high powered portable extraction machines removing unwanted soil, bacteria and pollens thus breathing new life into carpet fibres, revitalising the colour and providing a healthy clean environment.
From large rooms, to just a small sofa that needs bringing back to life, DC Property Maintenance is the perfect company for all your carpet and upholstery washing needs. We can schedule your cleaning at a time that suits you, whether it be day, evening or weekend.
Carpet Washing Process:
Before we commence, we carefully vacuum carpets and upholstery to remove all surface particles - it is very important that all foreign bodies are removed.
For normal carpet cleaning, our machines spray a fine mist of special detergent and water onto the carpet and immediately remove the dirt filled solution with a powerful vacuum action. Drying times depend on a number of factors including the temperature and humidity, the depth and density of carpet pile and the amount of cleaning required.
For large scale commercially used carpets or those with particularly heavy soiling, we use a deep cleaning foam extraction system. On a single pass, air and detergents are mixed under pressure to generate a dense foam. This is agitated into the carpet pile by a cylindrical brush. The brush applies the foam to loosen dirt from base to tip of each carpet fibre. Dirt held in suspension within the foam is then immediately removed by the turbo-vacuum in the same sweep.
While not completely dry, this foam based system reduces the drying time over normal cleaning methods allowing normal use to resume much sooner. This is hugely advantageous for public areas such as pubs, restaurants or nurseries.
All carpets we treat are deodorised and sanitised which leaves behind a lovely smelling, clean, healthy carpet.
Hard Floor Cleaning & Buffing
We use professional rotary cleaning and buffing machines to ensure that hard surfaces such as wood flooring, bar fronts and all types of tiled areas are properly cleaned and buffed to a high standard.
Our decorating service is designed to meet your constraints. Here's an example of what we mean.....
We conveniently work around your schedule. Your property gets rejuvenated while you're out at work or spending a day with the family in the park.
We use professional quality quick drying and odourless paints when required. That means no unpleasant smells to greet you on your return.
We pride ourselves on giving you a quick turnaround because we use our own professional in-house decorating team. You can have the job finished before you've even received another quote - and that's a fact!
We use our own highly skilled and experienced painters and decorators. You get a better than expected, professionally executed result.
We recognise that delivering excellent service depends on focusing our attention on what is important to you. So whatever your priorities, we will tailor our service to deliver exactly what you want, when you want it.
We can provide our professional cleaners for regular house spring cleaning, or a one off deep clean for properties that have been neglected for some time.
As well our regular bookings we are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week should you require an emergency call out or a one off booking. And don't forget that all of our quotes are provided free of charge! Here are two examples that explain the benefits of our service in more detail:
Example 1 - Regular cleaning of domestic properties. Typically, such clients want a regular dependable service that they can 'set and forget'.

We only send you trained, professional, uniformed staff who reflect our high standards. We get done what others cannot.
Example 2 - End of tenancy cleans. Typically, such clients want a fast, comprehensive service, so the property can get back to the original standard as soon as possible. You can readily see from these two examples, that DC Property Maintenance is easily capable of meeting any of your specific needs.
We do all the work necessary to support your cleaning needs. We will clean the carpets, redecorate, remove rubbish, weed and tidy the garden areas, as well as the general cleaning. One call to us and the most appropriate skilled team will ensure your property is brought back to the original standard. We will also manage any specialist trades if required.

Every job, no matter how big or small, always results in rubbish or debris that needs to be disposed of. That's why we include waste disposal in everything we do. We have all the relevant licences for legal, environmentally friendly transport and disposal. Therefore, we can offer waste clearance as a separate service too.

Fire Risk Assessments
Most fires are preventable. Those responsible for workplaces and other buildings to which the public have access can avoid them by taking responsibility for and adopting the right behaviours and procedures.
Employers (and/or building owners and occupiers) must carry out a Fire Safety Risk Assessment and keep it up to date. This shares the same approach as Health and Safety Risk Assessment, and can be carried out either as part of an overall risk assessment or as a separate exercise.
WHAT IS A FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT?
A FIRE RISK ASSESSMENT IS A PROCESS INVOLVING THE SYSTEMATIC EVALUATION OF THE FACTORS THAT DETERMINE THE HAZARD FROM FIRE, THE LIKELIHOOD THAT THERE WILL BE A FIRE AND THE CONSEQUENCE IF ONE WERE TO OCCUR.
Is it required by Law? Yes. There are a few exceptions.
The Law states that the responsible person for each property is required to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment each year and remove any risks or reduce them as much as possible.
The "responsible person" is defined as the person/s who owns or controls the business and/or in the case of multi-occupied buildings the owner of the property, and it is their responsibility to ensure that a Fire Risk Assessment is carried out on a regular basis.
The Regulations Since 1st October 2006, all employers/owners/occupiers, (the responsible person), have a legal obligation under the Regulatory Reform Fire Safety Order (RRFSO) 2005, to carry out a Fire Risk Assessment at their premises.
The Fire Safety (Employees' Capabilities) (England) Regulations 2010, an additional piece of legislation of the RRFSO 2005 was released on 6th April 2010.
The new regulations states "Employer to take employees' capabilities into consideration. Every employer must, in entrusting tasks to employees, take into account their capabilities with regards to Health and Safety, so far as those capabilities relate to fire."
So, employers will now have to consider what a worker is able and unable to do when giving those tasks and how these capabilities may affect their ability to deal with fire-related risk assessments and nominated fire wardens or marshals.
The person carrying out the Fire Risk Assessment should be competent to do so. A competent person may be regarded as a person with sufficient training and experience, knowledge or other qualities, to enable him or her to carry out a defined task.
Can I carry this out myself? Yes, if you consider you have the competence to do so.
We are normally employed either when a client does not have the necessary competence or when they do not have the time or resources to conduct the risk assessments themselves.
When is a Fire Risk Assessment needed? Periodically (annually is usual).
After significant changes (increases in staff numbers or changes in floor layouts).
If an assessment is considered no longer valid.
After a fire.
What penalties and fines are there for not having a Fire Risk Assessment? Failure to undertake regular Fire Risk Assessments is not only a risk to your business, your people and your customers, but can land you in Court. If there is a fire or if the premises have been identified to be a risk, then a lack of an appropriate Fire Risk Assessment and suitable precautions can result in prosecution with severe fines and, in cases of extreme negligence, prison terms.
Whatever the case, a lack of a Fire Risk Assessment and obvious measures to reduce risk and enhance safety, can be damaging in so many ways. And even if you can afford the fine (which can be tens to hundreds times more than the cost of the assessment), then the publicity can be very bad for business.
