Our Carpet Cleaning Process
On arrival at your property, and before commencing work, Allan will walk through with you, the areas you want cleaned. He will ask you for any areas of concern, such as stains, spots and spills or odours. For stains and odours, Allan will ask if you know how the stain or odour was caused, and if anyone has treated it previously. This will enable a clear expectation of the success in removing the stain, and if a return visit for odour removal may be necessary.
Allan will then commence “Steam” cleaning or “Hot Water Extraction” the requested areas, starting by pre-spraying the area with an emulsifying detergent to break down the soils contained within your carpet or upholstery fibres. Spots and stains will need to be treated with a spot remover and odours will need to be treated with a separate odour removing substance that will break down the bacteria particles and neutralize them.
After completing work, Allan will ask you to view the areas cleaned to establish that you are happy with the work completed. If not, he will find a solution to any issues raised.
Once happy with the work, Allan will pack up the equipment and give you any instructions necessary to maintaining your carpet and upholstery.
Once cleaned, your carpet will remain moist for approximately 4-6 hours. These times can vary depending upon local weather conditions, ventilation and how soiled the carpet was prior to cleaning. Whilst you may walk on your carpet straight away, please be careful when moving from a carpeted area to hard floors, so as not to slip and fall.
Most upholstery will be able to be used within around the same time frame, however, weather and ventilation do play a large factor in upholstery drying times.
Try to avoid sitting on a damp couch for your own comfort.
Having the latest technology truck mounted equipment, Allan tries his best to extract as much moisture as possible from your furnishings when cleaning your carpet and upholstery.

Steam Cleaning Services
(Depending on usage, carpet should be professionally steam cleaned (hot water extraction) every 12-18 months to revitalise your carpet and remove any oily, sticky and well-settled soils that cause gradual, significant dulling of colours. Steam cleaning should only be undertaken by a professional carpet cleaner in accordance with Australian/New Zealand Standard AS/NZS 3733:1995. Shampooing, do-it-yourself steam cleaning or dry cleaning is not recommended). Source: Godfrey Hirst
This states a fairly strong case for steam cleaning, as it removes those moistened soils, oils and sticky residues that accumulate within our carpet.
