Getting a stain removed from carpets or any sort of upholstery can be tricky if you don’t know what you’re doing. This is when hiring the services of a carpet cleaning company will be of benefit. By using a professional, you are guaranteed that no damage will come from the cleaning process. With certain stains like cordial or red wine, it will require a cleaning solution to be applied to it and be left to sit for about 20 minutes before the extraction process. This will give enough time for the cleaning solution to break down the stain and make it easier to remove.
Dry Carpet Cleaning
Some stains can be cleaned with a dry carpet cleaning powder. This is designed to crystallise within the carpet and encapsulate the stain. The crystals are then removed by either vacuuming or steam cleaning. Some people may hire a carpet cleaning machine from the local shop, but this can be ineffective if you don’t have the right cleaning products to apply to the carpet beforehand.
Perth Carpet Cleaning Process
When a professional carpet cleaner Perth comes out to your home to do a clean, they would do a pre vacuum then a pre stain treatment. When applying the stain treatment, it is important that it is applied in an even fashion. If there are areas that have been missed, the carpets may look patchy after the cleaning process and will have to be redone. Using a carpet cleaner that pays attention to the pre spray and every step of the cleaning process will make for a better clean.
One of the most important parts of a carpet clean or upholstery clean is not to leave the fabric too wet. This can lead to mould forming over the surface during the drying time. Mould is something nobody wants in the home and especially not on their carpets or upholstery. Once mold sets in, it is very difficult to get rid of. Using a company that has the latest carpet cleaning machines for cleaning homes and units is very important.
Using a Truck Mounted Machine
Professional carpet cleaners would generally have a truck mounted carpet cleaning machine and also a portable cleaning machine. The truck mounted machine would be used where possible like for houses and units up to about the 5 or 6 floors. When using in a unit the hoses are passed over the balcony and connected to the machine inside the truck. This is why they are called a truck mounted machine. Anything that can’t be reached with the truck mounted machine would be done with the portable. When hiring a cleaner make sure they have the right equipment to do the job.
Carpet Cleaning for Rental Properties

A tenant can find out what they need to get done by looking at their rental agreement. It will state whether they need to get pests done for cockroaches and or fleas. The property managers are becoming very picky on their inspections these days, so it pays to use a company that works to a very high standard.

Using a reputable company is paramount when vacating a rental at the end of lease.
