Brexit and vacuums cleaners

You might remember that in 2014 the EU put out a new law that banned the sale of some of the most powerful vacuums on the market at the time, prohibiting manufacturers from making or importing vacuums that had a motor exceeding 1,600 watts and with a further reduction to 900 watts in 3 years time.

Introduced as part of the EU’s energy efficiency directive design to tackle climate change, it was unwelcome news to a lot of home owners and especially those with severe allergies that relied on that extra power to pick up more allergens.

The legislation was criticised at the time with consumer groups pointing out the fact that the lower wattage vacuums will just be getting used for twice as long as the higher wattage ones, which then defeats the reasoning behind the legislation in the first place.

After the referendum

Before the ban a lot of the top-rated vacuum cleaners on the market where exceeding 1,600 watts, so with us leaving the EU there is the potential of the ban being lifted and these vacuums once again becoming available to be purchased by the UK consumer as well as other electrical good that may come under fire from the EU in the future, such as hairdryers, kettles, and lawnmowers.

This is good news when it comes to cleaning efficiency and when it comes to efficient cleaning Woldbrite is up there with the best, with over 30 years experience in the carpet cleaning industry, we have expanded our expertise and services and now proudly offer top-rate cleaning packages for carpets, wood floors, stone floors, upholstery, rugs and tiles.

Save yourself a fortune with upholstery cleaning from Woldbrite.

It can be tempting when your furniture is worn and tired to simply replace it. The downside to this however can be that it is very expensive! We don’t all have the money lying around to buy a new three-piece suite or armchair set - but this doesn’t mean you have to put up with grubby, old looking furniture.

From a light clean to a full restorative clean on even the most stained and worn settee, we can return the beauty and youth to your furniture by deodorising it, removing dirt and dust mite bacteria, and providing stain protection!

We know that over time all upholstery gathers a collection of stains from spilled food and drinks, pens, slippers, and various other sources. It also gradually becomes dull and lack lustre from overuse and age. Furthermore, it can also start to collect and hold onto unpleasant odours such as cigarettes, strong food smells, and pets.

The cleaning products that we use are completely safe as well as child and pet-friendly. While vacuuming a sofa can dispose of loose dirt and crumbs, it is not as thorough as a deep clean provided by a professional service which is why so many home and business owners use our upholstery cleaning service. 

We pride ourselves on remaining local using only the best pet and environmentally friendly chemicals recommended by all the major upholstery manufacturers.

So save your money – get your upholstered furniture cleaned! We guarantee to bring it back to its natural beauty and make it look so fresh and clean that everyone will think that it is new!

Call us today on 01509 881 137 for a free no obligation quote, or to ask us any extra questions you may have.

How to remove the most common stains

There are numerous irritating stains that get to be really difficult to remove from your clothes, carpets or upholstery. Obviously, here at Woldbrite, we recommend a full restorative clean of you floors and upholstery as a solution, but we know this isn’t always possible.

For this reason, here are some of the most common stains and ways we have found you can treat immediately to remove them and prevent them from setting!

Coffee: Soak immediately with lukewarm water. Gently dab stain with detergent or with vinegar diluted in water. Wash in the hottest water recommended for the fabric and repeat as needed. Avoid bar or powder soap as this can set the stain permanently!

Blood: Rinse immediately with cold water! If possible, immerse in room temperature water with detergent and let soak for 10-15 minutes.

Tomato sauce: Remove excess sauce carefully with a butter knife or spoon. Dab liquid detergent onto the stain. Rinse with cold water from underneath the stain – you don’t want to push it back into the fabric.

Butter/Fat/Cooking Oil: Treat immediately with lukewarm water. Immerse in warm water with detergent. Remove and gently dab stain with detergent; place face down on a paper towel and let stand. For persistent stains, carefully apply bleach or dry cleaning solvent from the inside of the garment and rest face down on paper towels, then wash thoroughly.

Wine: Treat immediately with warm water. Rub in salt and let it stand. Rinse salt out, dab gently with detergent and lay face down on a paper towel. Rinse again and wash normally. Again, avoid bar soaps, which can set the stain permanently.

Mud/Dirt: Soak in lukewarm water to and scrub to remove as much as possible. Apply detergent to remaining stains and let soak for 20-30 minutes. Rinse and repeat.


Removing stains can be very difficult sometimes, so it’s a very good idea to get your floors and upholstery treated properly. We will restore the beauty and life of your carpet and furniture by deodorising it, removing dirt and sating and installing protection against future stains so that your carpets new look in long lasting! You can have a brand new and refreshed home without having the huge expense of re-carpeting or re-upholstering.

Why you should clean your upholstery regularly

When your furniture and upholstery starts to look tired and worn it can be easy to simple buy some new pieces. This option can however be very costly and wasteful! 9/10 there is reason to get rid of your perfectly functional furniture just because it looks a bit tired, because a good clean from Woldbrite cleaning services can bring it back to its original glory!

Over time all upholstered furniture gathers a collection of stains from spilled food and drinks, pens, pets and various other sources. It also gradually becomes dull with age and overuse. As well as this, it also tends to collect and hold onto unpleasant odours such as cigarettes, strong food smells, and pets.
The most obvious reason to clean your upholstery is “because they look dirty”. 

However, there are several reasons why to consider regular professional carpet and upholstery cleaning even when dirt does not show. 

All these reasons can be quite significant to the health of your family and pets and to protect your loved carpets and furnishings -

  • Protection of your furniture which will save you money in the long run
  • Improved air quality through the removal of bio-pollutants from your upholstered furnishings and carpets
  • Removal of dust and dangers that can trigger symptoms for allergy or asthma sufferers
  • Removal of unseen microscopic bacteria and germs that can make your family unwell
  • Removal of stains that tend to set in over time and become very difficult to remove
  • Restoration of colour and texture of the carpet and upholstery fibres

From a light freshen up to a full restorative clean, we can restore the beauty and life of your upholstery by deodorising, removing dirt and dust mite bacteria, and providing stain protection.

Spring Cleaning!

We are the home of cleaning services. If you need some professional help with your spring cleaning, we pride ourselves on providing an unsurpassed flooring and upholstery cleaning service that you can trust. With over 30 years experience in the carpet cleaning industry, we have expanded our expertise and services and now proudly offer top-rate cleaning packages for carpets, wood floors, stone floors, upholstery, rugs and tiles.

We all love the warmer weather. Longer evenings, walks in sunshine, picnics... what’s not to love? One thing that can be irritating as the sun starts to shine through our windows again is the plethora of sins it can reveal. Layers of dust, grubby marks, irritating fingerprints and hidden dirt all come into view when the sunny rays start to seep through and all those little things we let go over the winter months suddenly need to be addressed. That’s where the spring clean come in, and is probably the main reason people choose to have a big clean at this time of year.

Here are our top spring cleaning and de-cluttering tips –

MAKE TIME
Set aside a specific day to start your spring cleaning a few weeks in advance. The earlier you set this time aside, the better you can organise your schedule around that time. This will ensure that social engagements and activities don’t disrupt your plan and lead to you putting your spring clean off.

WRITE IT DOWN
Commit your spring clean plan to paper. Write up a comprehensive checklist or what needs to be done and programme of when you plan to do it. Put this plan up somewhere in your home that you will see regularly. This organisation will make it difficult for you to put it off and shy away from your cleaning commitments!

KNOW YOUR GOALS
Make a full and detailed list of all your cleaning goals. Think about what’s top of your list of priorities this year, and what you can get out of your spring clean to help you with this? For example if you are studying and need extra space to work at or room for you books, a couple of things on your list should be ‘organise desk to create study space’ and ‘clear some space/a shelf for books’. This will make you more motivated to clean, because you know you will be directly benefiting from it in the end.

A clear mind is a happy mind and a clean home is a happy home. Having a spring clean can leave you feeling refreshed, contented and recharged!

If you need some extra help with your spring cleaning this year please so not hesitate to call Woldbrite.

Welcome to the ‘Wold’ of ‘Briter’ cleaning

Hygiene is a common issue that effects domestic, commercial and industrial sectors and when left at the wrong levels can often lead to inefficiency, obstructions to  day-to-day running and costly outcomes, which whether you’re a business or householder are issues you will want to avoid.

Hiring a professional cleaner can seem like a costly option, however if you lack the time and/or staff to keep on top of things you will be surprised at just how much you appreciate the extra assistance.

At Worldbrite cleaning we pride ourselves on the personal touches we bring to people’s homes, offices and local authorities  while exceeding customers expectations of the levels of hygiene that we can bring.

Although our humble beginnings started in carpet cleaning more than 30 years ago as a family run business, word of mouth and excellent reviews from customers have allowed us to expand our work into upholstery, wood floor, stone floor and tile and grout cleaning providing businesses and homes across the country, including Nottingham, Leicester, Derby and surrounding areas with excellent cleaning services.

You can rest assured that all of our work is fully insured and that we only employ professionally trained technicians that follow our strict codes of practices. This means that we will only provide the best, liaising with you from initial consultations to ensure that you will be happy with every step.

Our services incorporate both little and large cleans from fixing those stubborn to remove carpet stains to extensive clean of student housing or hospital upholstery. Many people worry when they have expensive textiles furnishing their home or workplace, however, we understand that all textiles and materials are made from different fibers and can incorporate a multitude of dyes and chemicals.

Due to our extensive experience and knowledge of the cleaning industry we are able to cater our services and products to suit the areas which require cleaning, providing the appropriate solutions to produce the results that you want consistently.

Domestic carpets and rugs can often be a breeding ground for dust mites and can also attract outside pollen and pet hair, which can be a nightmare if you have allergies – if these are things that worry you we would recommend regular cleaning every six to eight months which will not only reduce allergens and improve your health but will also help prolong the life of expensive carpets and rugs. This is particularly useful if you are looking to completely sterilise or clean up rental properties after tenants have moved out or are looking to sell your home.

Our services also apply to any upholstery that you may have on sofas, armchairs or furniture which can all be treated at your discretion with our choice of the right products.

From light cleans to full restorative services – our services at WoldBrite only aim to produce sparkling results.
