After Builders Cleaning
Do I have to provide the cleaning materials?
No, the team takes care of this and it is included in the price for the service.
Do you clean the inside of kitchen units as part of your After Builders Cleaning?
We clean everything from outside, if the kitchen is new the cleaners may wipe down the inside if this is required. All details will be discussed with you prior to the day of the clean.
Can you dispose of builders waste?
Yes, we work in close partnership with a number of trusted rubbish removal companies. We can arrange the disposal of all unwanted waste, including furniture etc.
Will all the stains come out?
No guarantee can be made that every stain will be removed. Some stains permanently damage the carpet fibres and no specialist cleaning will reverse this. But we use high-quality products and we do our best to clean every type of stain.
How long will my carpet or furniture take to dry?
Drying time depends on many conditions, including how soiled the item was, how much water was used, weather conditions, indoor atmosphere, etc. However, in most cases, carpets and soft furnishings should be dry within 6-8 hours.
Do I have to move furniture?
In most cases the DustBusters Inn team 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.
How often should I have my carpets cleaned?
Most manufacturers recommend that carpets are professionally cleaned by a qualified technician every 12-18 months. Carpets should be cleaned on a regular basis and before they become heavily soiled. Allowing soil to build up will significantly reduce the life of a carpet.

One Off Cleaning
What is “one off cleaning”?
It is a domestic cleaning service and is charged by the hour. Operatives will clean as much as possible in the time booked. That’s why it’s best if you prioritise the rooms or areas you would like us to focus on, so that you best utilize the time the team spends cleaning.
How much is it going to cost?
It depends on the number of operatives you want us to send and the amount of hours, as well as our availability for the date you prefer.
What does it include?
The cleaners follow a list of priorities, which we set when we arrange your booking. As you’re the one ordering it, the service can include any area or surface you request, as long as it is feasible.
What type of detergents and equipment do you use?
We use various professional-grade detergents, which we’ve been using for years and know provide the best results. Still, as some types of surfaces require special care (e.g. marble) it’s best to let us know so that we can come prepared. We can use detergents which you provide for us. As to equipment, ¬ we normally come equipped with a hoover, mop, bucket and cleaning rags.
Can you clean mould and mildew?
Unfortunately, due to their very peculiar nature mould and mildew are extremely difficult to battle, and in most cases re-plastering is needed. As this does depend on the amount to which they have spread and the surface they’ve formed on, we might be able to clean it up to a certain level, but we cannot provide any guarantees. Please do inform us if there are affected areas in your property or if they are your main reason for booking a one off cleaning service.
Do you move furniture around and clean beneath it?
We do move light furniture around in order to gain access to the areas that need cleaning. However, we normally don’t move any heavy items, such as double beds and larger sofas. In such cases the cleaners will clean all the visible parts around the furniture.
