Overall, professional carpet cleaning in can help to improve the health, longevity, and appearance of your carpets, making it a worthwhile investment for homeowners.
The frequency of carpet cleaning depends on various factors, such as the amount of foot traffic, the presence of pets or children, and the level of indoor air pollution. As a general rule, it is recommended to have carpets professionally cleaned at least once every 12 to 18 months. However, if you have a busy household with kids and pets, or if someone in your household suffers from allergies or respiratory problems, you may need to have your carpets cleaned more frequently. Additionally, if you notice any stains or odours, you should have them treated as soon as possible to prevent them from becoming more difficult to remove.
Hot water extraction carpet cleaning, also known as steam cleaning, is a popular method of carpet cleaning that uses hot water and cleaning solution to deep-clean carpets.
The process begins with a pre-treatment of the carpeted area to loosen any dirt or debris that may be embedded in the fibres. Then, hot water is sprayed onto the carpet, along with a cleaning solution that is designed to break down and lift dirt and stains.
Next, a powerful vacuum is used to extract the hot water and cleaning solution from the carpet, along with the dirt and debris that it has loosened. This helps to remove deep-seated dirt and stains that may not be visible on the surface.
The hot water extraction method is effective at removing a wide range of contaminants from carpets, including dirt, pet hair, allergens, and bacteria. It is also effective at removing stains, such as those caused by red wine, coffee, or pet urine.
While hot water extraction can be an effective method of carpet cleaning, it is important to choose reputable carpet cleaners that use safe and effective cleaning solutions and equipment.
While it is possible to clean your own carpets using rental equipment or household cleaning products, hiring a professional carpet cleaning service is generally recommended. Here are some reasons why:
Overall, while DIY carpet cleaning can be a cost-effective option, hiring a professional can provide better results and save you time and effort in the long run.
The drying time for carpets after hot water extraction carpet cleaning can vary depending on a few factors, including the humidity and temperature in your home, the type of carpet, and the amount of water used during the cleaning process. In general, carpets can take anywhere from 4 to 12 hours to dry completely.
To speed up the drying process, you can take a few steps:
It's important to avoid walking on the carpet until it is completely dry to prevent tracking in dirt or causing new stains. Your carpet cleaning technician may also provide additional tips to help your carpets dry more quickly after the cleaning process.
The technicians at A1 Carpet Cleaning carry a wide range of solutions and chemicals to tackle even the most stubborn of stains, however there are some DIY methods that you might wish to try yourself:
It is important to always blot stains, rather than rubbing them, as rubbing can push the stain deeper into the carpet fibres. Additionally, be sure to test any cleaning solution on an inconspicuous area of the carpet first to ensure it does not damage the fibres.
Yes, professional carpet cleaning can help remove pet odours from carpets. Professional carpet cleaning companies often use specialized equipment and cleaning solutions that can penetrate deep into the carpet fibres to remove pet odours and stains.
One effective method that we use at A1 Carpet Cleaning to remove pet odours is hot water extraction, also known as steam cleaning. This method uses hot water and a cleaning solution to loosen dirt and debris, which is then extracted using a powerful vacuum. This method can effectively remove pet odours and stains from carpets.
In addition to professional cleaning, we also offer odour elimination treatments or deodorisers that can help to neutralize pet odours in carpets.
It is important to note that the success of pet odour removal depends on the severity of the odour and the type of carpet.
Professional carpet cleaning can be safe for children and pets, but it is important to choose a reputable company that uses safe and effective cleaning methods and it is important to ask about the products they use and any potential risks.
In addition to using safe cleaning products, A1 Carpet Cleaning can also take extra steps to ensure the safety of children and pets during the cleaning process. This can include using low-moisture cleaning methods that result in faster drying times, using fans to speed up the drying process, and taking precautions to prevent slips and falls.
However, it is still a good idea to keep children and pets off freshly cleaned carpets until they are completely dry, as damp carpets can be slippery and may cause accidents.

Some companies may charge additional fees for special services, such as stain removal or pet odour elimination, which is why it’s always important to properly understand what is included in the service you are booking. Get a detailed quote from the cleaning company before scheduling the service to ensure that you understand the cost and any potential additional fees.
There are sadly a number of carpet cleaning firms that do what is known as ‘bait and switch’, which basically means that they offer a very cheap quote, but then this can double or even treble once they are in your home. As such, be very cautious of any companies that seem too cheap.
