Can anyone recommend a carpet cleaner. I have a chinese rug 3.6 m x 2.7 m (12ft x 9ft) which I have had for over 30 years and was very expensive when purchased all those years ago. It has been professionally cleaned in the UK several times but since being in France has only been done once in the last 11 years with a borrowed steam cleaner which really only lifted surface dirt. It is now in need of a good deep clean by someone who knows what they are doing but wont charge me the earth! Thanks.

Hi, I want to build a shed on a piece of land well away from roads and other buildings.I want it to sit in, with my sandwiches and flask, and be a sad git!..I know it's got to be less than 20 sq metres and not made of blocks.So can anyone help with what I can make it of,stone?wood? straw bales?Tin roof?Also can anyone point me towards the rules as my neighbour was saying it needs to be open,ie no door or it is in another section for planning.I've looked in the combined Angloinfo knowledge but to no avail,and I've asked the marie to accept my application.She very nicely tells me all the things I can't do,but for example doesn't say what about a very small caravan.

We have an ongoing problem with our water bill, due to previous owners not doing work correctly. Basically we have bought a property that was a laregr property split into 2 . At this time the owners did not notify the water company. When we arrived we discovered that the water meter was in the other proprty and supplied us, which they then turned off. We have now got our own meter so they cannot do this again, but are receiving bills for the old address ( which doesn,t exist) and the upstairs owners receive no bill, and refuse to pay half ( an agreement they had with the previous owners). Any ideas how we sort this, have asked water co to come out several times but they don't turn up
Has anyone had a pool liner changed in the Carcassonne area?We are looking for a recommendation as to who could complete this work for us in Feb / March of this year. It is a 13m x 5 water air pool.A leak needs to be located as well.Having had two quite diverging quotes by people that we don't know (recommended by a shop in Carcassonne) we were wondering if anyone on here could recommend someone who would like to give us a third quote.Thanks in advance.
