In recent years rogue traders have become more and more of a concern for anyone looking to employ a tradesman or company. Increased public awareness, government involvement and media coverage have gone some way to educate the public on the dangers of using unqualified and dishonest service providers, but the problem is far from solved.
It was over forty years ago that several like-minded carpet cleaners got together with concerns about the standards of some cleaning companies and a general desire to improve their industry and its public perception. In 1968 these innovators formed the Carpet Cleaners Association (later to become the National Carpet Cleaners Association). Since then the NCCA has set the standards for this industry, with our members providing the highest levels of service, workmanship and ethics.
Being backed by the only recognised UK body for the flooring and soft furnishing cleaning industry means you can be assured that a professionally trained technician with full insurance cover will be recommended to you from our list of member companies based all over the country. NCCA members operate to a Code of Practice, which covers specifics such as fair pricing, service and consumer protection and the NCCA promotes best practice in all its activities. Technical assistance is available to all members as required, along with a 24 hour legal helpline. A complaint procedure also ensures that, in the unlikely event of a disagreement, professional and unbiased advice is available.
If you are considering employing a company to undertake cleaning or restoration of carpets, upholstery, hard flooring, leather, curtains, rugs or any related services, you cannot underestimate the value of using an NCCA member.
