What is steam cleaning?
“Steam” cleaning or hot-water extraction is our process of carpet cleaning whereby hot water is injected into your carpet at high pressure and immediately extracted.
Because it is an extraction method, bacteria, dust mite, and various other pollutants and allergens are “sucked” from your carpets and outside through our waste recovery system.
Steam cleaning is recommended by all the major carpet manufacturers, and in fact has been rated by “Choice” magazine to be the most effective carpet cleaning method to remove and extract soil, pollutants, sources of bacteria, odours, and allergens from the carpet

How long does it take for the carpet to dry after it has been cleaned?

How often should carpet be cleaned?
Major carpet manufacturers recommend that you vacuum carpet daily and have them professionally steam cleaned every 6 – 12 months. It most cases we recommend having a thorough carpet clean at least once a year.
How often should I have my upholstery cleaned?
Upholstery should not be allowed to become soiled to the extent where the fabric becomes noticeably or visibly discoloured. A good rule-of-thumb is that most upholstery should have a maintenance clean every 18-24 months or before soils and oils build up and stains the fabric.
Keep in mind that maintenance cleaning is less aggressive and is safer to dyes and fabric integrity.
Why is another carpet cleaning company I’ve spoken to, cheaper than you?
Different carpet cleaning companies operate different machines, have different specifications, and sadly, vastly different standards – We believe we are very competitively priced for the service that we provide.
The truth is, we don’t want to compete on price. We compete on quality (if our competitors want to beat us, they have to beat the quality and standard of cleaning that we produce).
Remember, the bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price is forgotten…
