I was staying over with some chums recently – they have a simply gorgeous old stone cottage that backs on to fields that stretch on for miles and miles. This is a truly idyllic spot, more so in the spring and summer it must be said. Cleaning of carpets, curtains and all the soft furnishings is a regular feature during the low season – due to the amount of farmyard based mud and muck being flung about and the residue seems to seep through the walls and doors! They do have a real coal fire too and despite assuring me that it’s much cleaner than it used to be in the days, several generations ago, when coal was not clean, this seems to chug out quite a lot of ash and dust. So in short, lots of cleaning up is needed all the time. A cleaning agency is just what they need – professional know how for a miniscule fee.
