  2. Dry cleaning
  3. Shampoo method

Steam cleaning

Clean your carpets by steam cleaning as it uses high-pressure steam and water, perfect to remove dirt and build-up from your carpet. This process dislodges dirt from the carpet fibres and extracts it, resulting in clean carpets that will dry in 2 to 6 hours in most weather conditions.

Steam cleaning will leave your carpets looking and smelling like new and most importantly removes all the dirt and microorganisms from your carpets that gets trapped in the base of your carpet that normal household vacuum cleaners just can’t get out. It is recommended that you get your carpets steam cleaned every 12 months to avoid dirt and dust particles from wearing away the base of your carpet over time.

Dry cleaning

Remove any soil and dirt present in your carpets by using a small amount of water, detergent and solvent. Dry cleaning uses the mechanical agitation of a brush to work through the carpet and remove dirt.

Use organic absorbent cleaner to dislodge soil or grime present in your carpets and then vacuum it away. Make sure to thoroughly vacuum the carpet before and after cleaning to ensure no residue is left behind.

This method has no drying time and you will be able to walk on your carpets almost immediately.  Dry cleaning uses little water and is perfect as a maintenance clean for your carpets if it is only lightly soiled.

Shampoo method

Make your carpets smell and look good by applying shampoo to your carpet. Ensure you use a shampoo that produces a lot of foam and contains additive to reduce soiling.

Apply the foam evenly by using a clean brush or sponge then allow it to dry over time. Make sure to prevent over wetting of the carpet as this can result in shrinkage and odour. Vacuum the carpet thoroughly after cleaning to remove the shampoo residue left on your carpets.
