David Peez – Managing Director, Republic Home

At The Ivy House, ensuring that the Armadillo & Co rugs that go into our clients’ homes and commercial spaces not only look beautiful, but function well for a long time, is our priority. We also choose to work alongside people who share our values and service standards. Brad and Guna at Premium Service Protection work collaboratively with us, respecting our clients, our business and the products they protect for us. We have been recommending the Microseal treatment for all rugs for 6 years now. We believe the product protects our clients’ rugs so they can enjoy them as they should, confident that cleaning will be made easier when there’s spills and stains. Although our rugs are largely made from wool and jute, that both have their own natural protectorants, we recommend the use of Microseal to add another barrier of protection against busy day to day function and general wear. Brad and Guna work closely with us to offer our clients an excellent pre-delivery service. This is a valued part of the service we offer our clients and we are very grateful for the personalised and professional service we receive. They are a trusted service partner we recommend to visit our clients in their homes also. Premium Service Protection is a valued part of our overall service and we genuinely recommend them, their team and the Microseal product.
