Frequently Asked Questions
Your carpet is constantly exposed to dirt, dust, grime, pet mess and food and drink spills. It can also be a perfect breeding ground for mould, mildew and bugs that may pose serious health issues if you don’t clean your carpet regularly. Carpet cleaning is also a good way to extend the life of your carpet and preserve its colour and design.
When it comes to good carpet cleaning Brisbane, it involves more than just washing your carpet with soap and water or using a vacuum. Home carpet cleaning machines available for hire don’t usually reach the temperatures required to not only clean your carpet effectively but also to sanitise them. A professional carpet cleaning Brisbane service provides a much deeper clean for your carpets.
As a general rule, your carpets should be cleaned at least once a year, but this depends on how you use your carpets or where you place them. For high traffic areas like the living and dining rooms where dirt and spills may easily accumulate, you may need to have them cleaned at least every few months. If your carpet has huge stains, however, it’s best to call in expert carpet cleaners Brisbane right away to have the stains cleaned before they absorb deeper into carpet fibres and make them impossible to remove.
Before our cleaners arrive, it’s best to remove small items like shoes, children’s toys, pet beds and décor off your carpet. You should also inspect your carpet for any stains, moulds or other issues to point out to our steam or dry carpet cleaner.
We highly recommend vacuuming your carpet before our cleaners arrive to get rid of noticeable debris and pet hair. This will make cleaning your carpet easier, and in general more effective, and will help in maintaining the integrity of your carpet.
To make the cleaning process faster, we advise that you remove any furniture or décor in the areas that you want cleaned. This will give our team full access to every corner of your carpet making sure that no area is left dirty.
Our carpet cleaners are highly experienced and trustworthy individuals who are committed to delivering you the best results. While you can always stay around to watch the process, you don’t need to be present while we clean. You can run some errands or do some work while we take care of carpet cleaning for you, or wait in another space at your property.
