” I recently enlisted the help of Matthew White of Contrast Carpet Cleaning and am delighted with the result!
The carpets had been laid about 20 years ago, and subject to traffic by pets and grandkids, but came up like new.
In addition I asked him to clean a well-upholstered lounge suite and it is now back in the same ‘showroom’ condition as when purchased 25 years ago.
I can confidently recommend his efficient and thorough work”

Everyone gets the choice of free or very low-cost advertising
Free listings are available for individuals, businesses, sports clubs, social groups and services.
This means that everyone gets to tell the community about what they do and what they can offer – it’s not restricted to those with an advertising budget.
We also have classified advertising at extremely low rates which you can check out here and build affordable websites which you can promote externally and we can promote through Vitalise.
Our best deal ever can be seen here
Unlike other forms of advertising (radio 30 seconds, newspaper a few days), Vitalise is available to its audience 24 hours a day and seven days a week.
Information stays where we put it on the site so it can always be located – not like putting a notice on a community social media site, where it will quickly be replaced by pictures of cats and dogs. We use those sites too, but Vitalise has one specific mission – to do the best possible job of representing everything in our community, and informing each and every member of this community about everything they need to know to get the best out of what we have here.
This means that someone looking for a special bargain, a coffee, a sports club or help with their health can search for it at 4pm or 2am – it’s there for them at all times.
it will help keep local money in the local community
We have a huge range of great businesses and services, and they deserve our support.
Vitalise will allow more people to see exactly what is on offer in our community, and help our businesses thrive.
This includes visitors to our community, who need to find what is available and where it is.
If your business or group is located in Thames, Paeroa, Waihi, Ngatea, Hauraki or Coromandel this website is designed to support you.
We do not support Big Box businesses – we are all about making our own local community thrive.
You can help promote local businesses and groups by telling everyone about a good experience with a locally owned/operated enterprise here
it has people waiting to hear about your offers to the community
Vitalise has a rapidly expanding list of locals who have signed up as members to win prize draws and hear about the offers that businesses and groups make to the local community.
A monthly email to these members will include all Special Deals made by local businesses and groups.
A quick and easy way to get your message to people who want to hear it.
it has free stuff
It has a section where we can offer free goods or services to fellow members of the community, whether this is a bag of lemons or a retired person wishing to use their skills to help another person or group.
Listings for garage sales are welcome.
it has a jobs section
This will help businesses needing staff locate the right people, and help job seekers find a position.
it’s new, and available for use right now.
The more listings we all put on the website, the better our community will be represented and the more useful the site will be.
it’s independently funded
Vitalise is built and sponsored by local business Photo Factory, so it’s not burning any ratepayer cash, and there is no subscription payable to use the website.
Before initiating the deep cleaning process,
we always ensure the carpets are thoroughly vacuumed. This removes a great deal of dust from within the pile prior to cleaning.
Our special Enzyme Pre-clean solution is evenly sprayed onto the areas to be cleaned.
This treatment ensures that when our enzymes are activated they react to their full potential, resulting in the highest quality
clean for you.
Like cleaning carpets, our process of cleaning
upholstery is just as thorough.
We vacuum and remove pilling from fabrics and then carefully apply an enzyme solution prior to cleaning.
This ensures a result that is noticeable, refreshing
the life of your treasured rugs and upholstery.
