Before & After: Cleaning Pics of the Week

Happy Wednesday, and welcome to another edition of “Before & After: Cleaning Pics of the Week.”

This week’s Before & After photos come courtesy of Mark Fellows of The Little Cornish Cleaning Company, a family-run carpet cleaning company serving all of Cornwall, UK.

The Little Cornish Cleaning Company offers eco-friendly residential and commercial cleaning. Their services include carpet and rug cleaning, mattress cleaning, upholstery cleaning and curtain cleaning.

Mark was called in to clean this carpet because it had some bad white paint staining. White paint on purple carpet–what an awful combination. Can Mark get the stains up without using all the elements in the periodic table?

dirty purple carpet

Yes! Not only have the stains disappeared, but the carpet is an entirely different color.

Mark says:


“I used [eco-friendly micro-splitting cleaner] M-Power® and hot water extraction. And a bit of spotting with “Gum Off It®. The paint was the easy bit; that carpet was filthy!”


Fantastic job!

    I am not impressed because the “before” and “after” photos may not be from the same room.

    They’re definitely from the same room–look at the wall color, baseboard molding, and so on. What makes this an amazing set is how strikingly different the “after” picture looks from the “before” picture. The carpet really was incredibly dirty, which is why it looks many shades darker in the “after” photo. Mark did an excellent job getting all that up.

    Lol, I’m good at what I do and love my job and business, I would never try and mislead anyone with any photos, these are genuine, taken from 1 of 20 nursing homes I clean for the same company in Cornwall, England. Thanks for posting

      Why don’t you take another set of photos, before and after, focussing on exactly the same angle? Would’nt that be more convincing?

        I’m fairly sure that the photos already look convincing. Unless you seriously think that Mark and I are engaging in some sort of international carpet conspiracy.

        If you think my suggestion is not necessary, so be it. Thanks.

        Ok, I’ll go bk, throw paint on the floor
        Re clean and then take more photos at the correct angle, sorry if you think it’s 2 different rooms, but it’s quite funny to me that you would post more than once on this subject, they are the same room, for the record 🙂

    Yea I agree this is a bogas photo, This pic was taking on the other side of the room.

      Omg! Yes you are right the After photo was taken approx 5 steps to the right, but the Center of the room is still the Center of the room, this isn’t life or death, it’s a photo before and after cleaning, not fake not enhanced, not made intentionally any different from the first photo… I can’t believe the only comment you have is that is fake… Whatever!
