Carpet Cleaning Brisbane

Carpet Cleaning Brisbane

Did you know ………that the dirt and waste that we extract from your carpets using our cutting edge Prochem ‘Everest’ Carpet Steam Cleaning machine is 4 times more toxic than human waste!

It has all sorts of nasties that include E. coli, pollen, bacteria, fungus, cigarette smoke, car exhaust, asphalt, insecticides, urine, faecal matter and hundreds of other chemical pollutants.

Believe it or not carpet cleaning is a trade that requires experience, training, modern cutting edge equipment, skill and knowledge.

Unfortunately because the carpet cleaning industry is unregulated there are many amateur operators in the market place selling themselves as professional carpet cleaners to the unsuspecting public.

Truth is anyone can set up as a carpet cleaner, put an ad in the local paper and call themselves ‘professional’.

There is no requirement for training, experience, registration, competency or even insurance!

As a consequence it tends to attract fly by nighters looking to make a quick buck at your expense.

Everyday we hear stories about ‘the last’ carpet cleaner-he was in and out in 20 minutes, the carpets didn’t look any different after he left, the carpets stayed wet for days………..

Scams like free stain removal, free deodorizing and free sanitizing get you in but prove worthless in the end.

‘Bait and switch’ tactics can soon turn your low price ‘bargain’ over the phone quote into a high priced unnecessary carpet clean with all sorts of bells and whistles that add no value whatsoever.

There is a better way!

Professional carpet cleaning services do exist. Quality carpet cleaning does exist.

In fact there are plenty of well trained, highly experienced cleaners using up to date equipment and quality pre sprays.

You simply have to know what to look for and who to avoid!

With a little knowledge and a change in your mindset you’ll soon be able to identify those carpet cleaning companies who can deliver the results you’re looking for.

What to look for when choosing a Brisbane Carpet Cleaner

1. What Carpet Cleaning equipment do they use?

The equipment/machine your carpet cleaner uses to clean your carpets plays a pivotal role in the end result.

carpet cleaning brisbane,portable carpet cleaning machineTry to avoid old/poorly maintained equipment and ‘portable’ style machines.

‘Portables’ are simply not as powerful as truckmounted machines. They do not heat their own water.

Quite simply the results are not nearly as good.

Obviously if you live in an apartment you do not have a choice.

If possible you should have your carpets cleaned with a petrol driven truckmounted machine.

Benefits of these systems include:

  • They heat their own water to much higher temperatures making the carpet pre sprays more efficient.As you would know all cleaning chemicals work A LOT better in hot water. Carpet cleaning pre sprays are no different.
  • Hotter water means faster drying times.2 to 6 hours.
  • More vacuum power. Means better extraction of dirt and much much faster drying times.
  • Last step emulsifiers. Means even more cleaning power at the rinsing/extraction phase.

Watch this video.

The 49HP petrol driven truckmounted Prochem Everest produces its own extreme heat and extraordinary vacuum.

The results we can achieve with this machine are light years away from those achieved by many carpet cleaners that use the common portable carpet cleaning machines.

2. What Carpet Cleaning industry recognised qualifications do they have?

When you consider that more than 90% of carpet cleaners have no formal industry training it’s no wonder there are so many disaster stories out there…

We have attended and completed formal training courses run by The Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration and The Australasian Carpet Cleaning Institute and we continually update our knowledge as fibre technology changes.

3. Do they have Carpet Cleaning industry experience?

The apprenticeship for most trades is 4 years. The apprenticeship for many carpet cleaners is quite often just 1 job!

One job, an old van and a $1000 carpet cleaning machine is what stands between your carpets and complete disaster.

Only experienced, industry trained cleaners using the latest equipment can remove all the nasties that lurk in your carpet.

Don’t risk you or your family’s health!

Don’t risk your bond and reputation!

Choose a carpet cleaner that knows what they are doing!

For over 10 years we have cleaned 1000’s of carpets for homeowners, vacating tenants, commercial clients and property managers.

4. Which Carpet pre sprays do they use?

Do you really know what your carpet cleaner is spraying on your carpet?

Carpet pre sprays or ‘shampoos’ as many people call them are a critical element to the carpet cleaning process.

Cheap high pH pre sprays can damage your carpet and lead to rapid re soiling.

Choose a company that uses only premium quality carpet pre sprays designed for each carpet fibre type.

We only use Prochem premium carpet presprays. They have a worldwide reputation for outstanding performance in the carpet cleaning industry.

Their formulations are developed to meet strict performance, safety, quality and environmental criteria.

Which is why leading carpet manufactures like Shaw Industries and professional bodies such as the Carpet and Rug Institute endorse the use of Prochem presprays.

5. Don’t be up sold into unnecessary Carpet Cleaning services…

Because most situations and customer requirements are unique we offer 3 levels of Steam Carpet Cleaning.

A Level 1 ‘basic clean’ suitable for vacating tenants, a Level 2 ‘Freshen Up’ clean suitable for homeowners and a Level 3 restoration clean for more heavily soiled carpets.

We will not over service you with unnecessary ‘add-ons’.


Hopefully by now you have a better understanding of what you should be looking for in a carpet cleaner.

You must:

  • Demand cutting edge well maintained machinery…
  • Seek industry recognized qualifications…
  • Look for experienced technicians…
  • Expect high quality pre sprays….
  • Not be up sold into unnecessary services…

Please Note:

  • Our Minimum Charge is $99
  • Our large truckmounted machine is not suitable for Units and Apartments


Poor carpet cleaning can significantly shorten the life of your carpet and affect your health.

As a homeowner, mother or parent don’t you want nasties like pollen, bacteria, fungus, cigarette smoke, car exhaust, asphalt, insecticides, urine, faecal matter and hundreds of other chemical pollutants removed from your carpets?

As a tenant do you really want the worry of your bond being held up while your property manager has the carpets cleaned again? Every week we are called out to ‘fix’ jobs that were done by ‘cheap’ carpet cleaners.

A $50 carpet clean can leave you feeling just as ripped off as $400 carpet clean.

The high quality Prochem carpet pre sprays that we use have a worldwide reputation for outstanding performance. They are safe for you, your family and the environment.
