A flooring specialist is expanding its services to customers by launching a new house cleaning service.

Nick and Nicola Clarey, who have run Long Sutton Flooring in the town for eight years, came up with the idea after they were asked to recommend someone to clean the rental properties where they had just laid new flooring and carpets.

“Basically we are providing a one-off clean of domestic properties before new rental tenants move in,” explained Nicola.

“If someone is moving out we can go and clean right through the property so it’s ready for the next tenants or new owner.

“We’ve already done a couple and it’s going really well. At the moment we have just one lady who’s cleaning for us, but we are hoping to expand things.

“We were asked a couple of times to recommend a cleaner, so we just thought this was an extra service we could offer in the hope we’d get more flooring work, as we’d be able to put in a cleaner afterwards. ”

The service is available to properties within a ten-mile radius of Long Sutton.

“What we’re not offering is a clearance service, we won’t be taking rubbish away,” added Nicola.

“And we won’t be taking on those properties which are particularly grotty or left in a bad state.”

The Clareys have been self-employed for 12 years and offer a friendly, knowledgeable service.

Nick has 18 years as an experienced carpet fitter and is also an approved advanced Karndean (a luxury floor tile and planks brand) fitter.

Through their business they provide a free measuring and estimate service to clients and run a local price match promise too.

Their Long Sutton showroom, staffed by themselves and two part-time employees, is located in the middle of Market Place and is well-stocked with a large variety of carpets, vinyls and laminates for every room in the home, with brands such as Lifestyle, Cormar, Carefree, Abingdon and Karndean.

The shop is open 9am to 5pm, Monday, Tuesday and Thursday, 9am to 12pm Wednesday, 9am to 4.30pm Friday and 9am to 1pm Saturday. There is free parking outside.
