This means cleaner and dryer means cleaner stem kills more bacteria than portable carpet cleaning equipment.

Our nine step carpet cleaning process will leave your carpet clean, fresh and dry within one hour.

1) Carpet inspection

We check for any damage or defects and check for stains, so we can treat effectively.

2) Moving large furniture

We move larger furnishings so you don’t need to, such as chairs and tables etc. Due to insurance reasons, we will ask you to move smaller valuable items such as ornaments.

 3) Pre-vacuuming

We then vacuum to remove any dry dirt and dust and hairs from the carpets.

4) Pre-spotting

We will pre-spot carpet for all difficult stains. We will carry out specialist stain removal techniques that we know will be difficult to remove, using specialist techniques.

5) Pre-spraying

We then apply a pre-spray designed to break down and lift oily dirt and pollutants from your carpet fibers, ready to be quickly and safely extracted and rinsed out.

6 & 7) Cleaning & rinsing

Using our professional truck mount carpet cleaning system, we then thoroughly clean and rinse your carpets. High-pressure steam and hot water is fired into the carpet pile. This helps to break up the dirt, bacteria, and pollens in the carpet. The machine then produces a huge vacuum volume to draw the dirt out of your carpet. This is the only method of cleaning recommended by the worlds largest carpet manufacturer.

8) Protective tabs

Where appropriate furniture is then replaced with protective tabs or foil under the legs of furniture. The reason we do this is sometimes the moisture left in the carpet will leach out any color/stain finish from the furniture, which could leave a stain on the carpet.

9) Carpet grooming

Where appropriate we will then groom your carpet to ensure we leave it in the best possible condition. This means we run a grooming rake over the carpet to ensure the fibers are tangle-free.
