My second time now using Raf, I wouldn’t use anyone else, they provide the best service, extremely friendly, efficient and professional. Kept me informed and helped me move furniture I could move due to being pregnant. I recommend them to EVERYONE!
Communication was excellent, prices more than reasonable. From start to finish we were so impressed with the service these guys provided. Professional and able to give great advice. We will be recommending this service to our friends and family.
Absolutely fantastic ! Very proffessional, extremely friendly and have done an amazing job on some very muddy stained carpets. The carpets look brand new! Will definitely be using their service again and would highly recommend.
Also very quick to reply to my initial enquiry and were bang on time arriving.
Thankyou for doing such a great job
Raf and Sylvia have done a brilliant job cleaning our sofa! I’m so pleased with the results. They’ve done carpets for me in the past and always 5 star results - I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thank you both!
Rafs carpet and upholstery cleaning.
Did an excellent job cleaning our front room carpet and three piece suite.
Ours is a busy house with six grandchildren leaving their mark on our furniture and carpet.
I have used Rafs carpet cleaning now on several occasion and each time the same high level of service . RAF & Sylvia are a great team and their work is competitively priced / they are always on time & their work is to an excellent standard and nothing is to much trouble for them. I wouldn’t use anyone else.
Booked this service last minute as wanted to get everything ready before the holidays- they were very busy but still helped find a slot convenient to me (I work full time). They arrived bang on time and it took them an hour to do my living room, stairs and carpet including saying. They made sure to move any furniture safely that I had to leave in the room - my carpet looks brilliant, am very very happy and will definitely use them again! 😊
Raf & Sylvia were just fantastic. Arrived on time, so respectful of our home and I was delighted with the quality and standard of the cleaning. My carpets look and smell fresh and brand new and my sofa, chair and foot stool look exactly the same! Highly recommend and will certainly use again. Thank you both for a first class service.
What an amazing service!, my carpets look brand new and they were heavily stained so they have achieved the impossible, I'm so happy and would not hesitate to use Rafs again.They were very professional and very tidy I also think the pricing was great and well worth it
Big thank you from one happy customer 😊
I have a busy household with 3 dogs and grandchildren who come around regularly so my lounge furniture gets a lot of use. Today I had 2 large settees, a large cuddle chair and a rug cleaned. The furniture has come up lovely and looks like new and the rug now smells equally Really professional, pleasant and lovely team. The cost was money well spent for the fantastic results. The cleaning equipment they used was of high quality and they had huge fans to help dry the upholstery. I would highly recommend Raf and Sylvia and I will definitely use them again 😀

Have used Rag & Sylvia many times, highly qualified in what they do! Suite always comes up looking new, done an amazing job on the rug also. Carpets clean and fresh looking. Lovely people and high quality work. Have recommended them many times, over the years. If you want good service and a high quality clean. These are the people you want. Look forward to them returning each year.

I manage to book them in with no hassle to deep clean the carpet of our new house. They turned up earlier than expected which was brilliant. They came in moved the furniture out of the way, they were so positive both of them. Worked really hard and fast, didn’t waste anytime. The results were amazing, the carpet feels & looks brand new. I would highly recommend them and they were reasonably priced too!
Absolutely fantastic job by Raf & Silvia!

Excellent service as always. My carpets look amazing again! Worked wonders on my children's bedrooms, they were covered in everything! Never thought they would come out so clean again.
Thank you again!
I have nothing but wonderful things to say about Raf’s cleaning. From initial contact he was professional, very fast at replying and in general just very pleasant to deal with. Raf arrived early and I was so impressed with his manner and punctuation. The level of cleaning products was very impressive and I am so pleased with the results. I couldn’t believe how fast they dried and Raf had some big professional fans to speed up drying time. I will be recommending Raf to everyone I know and will definitely use again in the future. Do not hesitate to book.
I was going to hire a rug doctor and try and do it myself but a friend mentioned Raf’s cleaning services and I’m so glad I went with Raf, I booked in for a Saturday morning and he texted me 30 mins before he arrived to let me know he’d set off, the communication throughout was fantastic and the whole process was very smooth.
The carpet is in the living room and is a light cream colour and was starting to look tired especially in the high traffic areas near the sofa , the results are amazing he really has brought it back to life!! From what I seen the kit he has is very high end so you can be confident he has the kit to get your carpets looking great again !!
Fantastic business and will definitely be using again , thank you Raf and I’ll see you again sometime 👍🏼
Got my carpets cleaned from Raf & Sylvia, happy with the results and their professionalism. Loved the fact that they use their own electricity and water to carry out the job. Will definitely recommend.
Raf & Sylvia are a very professional & friendly couple. The work was completed quickly & efficiently but they did not compromise on quality. They did an excellent job cleaning my hall stairs landing & through lounge carpets which came up like new 😊. A bonus of their service is they brought their own drying air pods… never seen these before…. Consequently carpets dry very quickly
They were quick to respond to my initial enquiry & kept me informed at all times of arrival etc
I would highly recommend them. A very happy customer 😊

5 star service. Didnt make a meal of the fact that had to work around furniture that was already there, made us feel comfortable and had a smile on his face.

Raf has just done a job for us and cannot believe the difference! like a brand new rug and carpet. All stains gone from our young lad and nice fresh smell! fantastic job and really good value for money! thankyou very much!
Was genuinely going to call our old carpet fitter & see if they had our old carpet in stock, so they could redo our landing. But then I called Raf! All the marks have gone, it feels deep pile again (not all squashed into the floor)- it’s back like the day we bought it. Definitely recommend.
Raf came today to clean our living room carpet and stairs and landing all’s I can say is I’m amazed! It looks like a new carpet and the best of it is that it’s not soaking wet it was left only slightly damp. Raf was really friendly and professional too. I would definitely recommend!
From my first enquiry to the job being done Raf was very professional. Communication was excellent and extremely polite and friendly. He did a fabulous job on the carpet in a property I rent out. Would highly recommend.
5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ from me. Thankyou
I hardly write reviews.
I recommended the service to my brother even though I had never used it myself.
My recommendation was purely based on the great content that Raf puts out and the results achieved consistently week and after week.
Raf, my brother and my sis-in-law were extremely happy with their results, you were punctual and polite, at a very fair price, and both said to me that they would recommend you to friends, family and even people they do not know personally as the grey carpets looked like new after you had worked on them.
My little nephew is also coughing less than before so allergens must also have been disposed of.
5 star results with a 7 star service.
To anyone reading this. You simply will not be disappointed.
Call Raf and get your job done.

Best carpet and sofa cleaners in the North West, by a country mile. And what lovely, professional people they are. I’ve had some bad experiences in the past and Raf and Sylvia were recommended to me by a friend. My carpets look brand new, everything was kept clean, tidy and with a level of respect for your home that you don’t get with many places these days. I have a sofa that is a delicate material, and cream! They did an absolutely amazing job, went over and above and really did provide a fantastic service. I will not use anyone else now only Raf & Sylvia! They even recommended products to clean and protect my sofa. Lovely people 🥰 thank you both
Raf and Sylvia were able to remove an orange marbling paint stain from my grey carpet plus other small spot stains I didn’t realise were there.
Would recommend 💯 and will definitely be having my other carpets cleaned with them in the near future.
Thank you so much 😊
Raf and Sylvia came today to clean a carpet that has survived two dogs and a baby. They managed to remove all sorts of stains including slime and wine!
I’m currently pregnant and they wore all appropriate PPE so I felt really safe.
They were both really kind and friendly as well as really knowledgeable and very passionate about their jobs.
My carpet looks brand new, thank you so much! Would 100% recommend and will be using again soon ⭐️
Just had my carpet cleaned by Raf’s Cleaning Service and would recommend 100%. Both Raf and Sylvia were very knowledgeable on the carpet that is currently fitted and also gave us tips. Can’t recommend enough. Will definitely be using them again!
They also followed all COVID regulations so I felt very safe letting them into my home. Thank you very much! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Thank you RAF and Sylvia what a fantastic job. From instantly replying each time to attending Covid safe and doing an efficient and brilliant job on our cream carpets. Including a big stain completely gone - we’ve had companies come before and been unable to lift the stain. Our carpets like new and smells gorgeous. Highly recommended will be using again for rest of rooms. Before and after pics below
Raf & Sylvia came today to clean our hallway, lounge, landing and bedroom carpets. We are so happy with the results. Very good at social distancing and very professional as always.

Raf came an cleaned my stairs, landing an living room. They came came up brand new! 10 out of 10 service can’t fault him in any way an would recommend him to anyone. I’ll definitely be using him again in the future 😊 cheers raf 👍🏽
I messaged rafs on here after I put a post up and around 4-5 people recommended them.. I explained that I had been let down that day by someone else & I wanted my carpet cleaning before all my furniture came for my living room.. they found me an appointment and they messaged back quickly.. the day before I was messaged just to confirm the clean was still going ahead and then messaged on the morning to say see you at 9am.. on time & my living room carpet looks brand new, smells clean & very professional job! They have a professional van & I would highly recommend and I will definitely be using again. Thank you
Can't recommend enough, absolutely amazing! Feel like we have a brand new carpet and the customer service is just next level. The most professional people I've ever come across, they just go that extra mile. If your hesitating to have this done, please don't you won't be disappointed. Will 100% be using again! Thank you so much!
Raf and Sylwia came to clean a couch I bought second hand today and some make up stains on the carpet. All done very swiftly, the couch is lovely now and the stains came off the carpet too ☺️ very professional and friendly, 100% recommended 👌
Excellent service from Raf's Cleaning Service. Stair carpet needed a freshen up after some home improvements. can't fault the service, he turned up before time ( he contacted me to check this was okay), RAF and his partner kept to the social distancing measures and maintained health and safety throughout. I took advantage of the deal and had a small bedroom carpet and rug cleaned too. I always get three quotes and Raf's was the best price for the job. My carpets are now smell fresh and clean, he also gave me a carpet cleaning solution, which I can use to clean my car seats as well as carpets and fabric sofas. I would definitely use this service again in the future. Thanks RAF 😃
5 star professional service really friendly people.. extremely pleased with the job done by Rafs. my carpets look new again.
I would highly recommend these guys if your having your carpets and upholstery etc cleaned
thank you very much Rafs👍🏻
absolutely thrilled with the work of raf and his lovely partner. beige carpet with 4 children 7 and under plus a naughty dog was never the best move. Raf has cleaned it beautifully. it looks brand new again. thank you so much
Raf's cleaning service I would definitely recommend. Did a fantastic job, observed social distance and wore masks So professional also cleaned my rug with no extra charge.. Thank you so much,I will definitely use them again.... Happy customer.
Excellent service: professional, efficient and left my carpets looking brand new!! Our carpets were in good condition but needed freshening up on high traffic areas; not a trace of dirt has been left behind. Very impressed, will definitely use again in future 😊
Raf and Sylvia have just cleaned our sofa and chairs. They have brought them back like new. Very polite and professional in keeping with Covid 19 regs. Very hard working and even gave us advice about the carpets. Will use in the future and would highly recommend them. Thank you both.
Trevor and Beryl
This is the first time I’ve used Raf’s Cleaning Service and I would highly recommend them. They communicated with me from the start of my enquiry, arrived promptly, were courteous and polite and definitely Covid prepared with masks, gloves & overshoes. Nothing was too much trouble. They moved my couch & chairs around whilst they cleaned - no refilling or emptying of buckets of dirty water in my house - they have a long hose coming from their van. Both Raf and his partner were really efficient and friendly. The standard of their work is excellent. My carpets look like new and I have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone.
