Professional rug & carpet cleaning in London and the rest of the UK
Even if you are not sure exactly what type of carpets and rugs you have, your technician will examine them and determine the best way to clean them.
- Synthetic/Mixed FibreFor the majority of carpeting, we use hot water extraction cleaning, also known as steam cleaning. This is the most advanced and effective deep carpet cleaning method recognised by professionals worldwide and it is great for stain cleaning. And if it can’t clean a spot from a carpet, then nothing will!
- Delicate/Natural FibreAnd what about that lavish hand-knotted oriental rug you keep in front of the fireplace? Well, rug cleaning is something we can help you with as well. When the carpet technician examines your items, he will determine if they should be dry cleaned or not.
How does Hot Water Extraction work?
Suitable for synthetics/mixed fibre
Step 1: Pretreating the item
Before the actual carpet cleaning procedure takes place, the technician will vacuum clean the piece to remove that first layer of loose dust. Then, he will examine the stains (if any) and choose the appropriate detergent for each. Spilled drinks, greasy food splatters, and so on – whatever it is, it will be dealt with accordingly. However, keep in mind there are stains that permanently damage the fabric and they are impossible to clean. If our methods can’t clean them, nothing will.
Step 2: Main cleaning procedure
This is the most efficient and longer-lasting carpet cleaning method on the market. It brings even the most blemished and heavily-soiled carpets back to life. Here is how it works:
- The technician uses a professional machine to deep clean every inch of the carpet.
- The nozzle ejects pressurised water mixed with a detergent. This easily dislodges all accumulated grime and dust.
- At the same time, a powerful suction attachment is removing all the excess moisture from the piece (along with the loosened dirt).
- This way, your carpet is being cleaned and dried at the same time, with no risk of damage – nearly 95% of the moisture is removed almost simultaneously.
NOTE: Clients who use our carpet cleaning services also book professional mattress and upholstery cleaning & curtain cleaning. Unlike other carpet cleaning companies, with us you can have all these items cleaned in one sitting by the same technician to achieve even better or rather fantastic results!
Step 3: Short drying time
After hot water extraction, the textile floor covering is slightly damp and needs 3 to 6 hours to air-dry on its own. We will also bring an air-mover for free for the duration of the service. It will be situated near the treated carpet. Тhis will significantly speed up the drying process (with a few hours) by increasing the airflow.
Dry carpet cleaning method
Suitable for delicate/natural fibre
Step 1: Applying the detergent
Low moisture powder is applied evenly on the carpet.
Step 2: Rubbing it into the fibers
The detergent is rubbed into the carpet with a brush that rotates at a safe speed. This process is known as fibre agitation. When the chemical agent is rubbed in, the dirt and other unsanitary debris attach to it.
Step 3: Removing residue
At the end, the powder, along with all the loosened dirt, are removed with a power-vacuum.
NOTE: This cleaning method is great for refreshing delicate rugs and carpeting but please keep in mind that it can not remove stains.

Stain Protection - Scotchgard
It would be a total shame if some accidental spill reaches your textile floor covering after the professional deep carpet cleaning. So, to protect your freshly cleaned items and prolong their life, your technician can use the highly effective stain repellent on them. The repellent is applied evenly on the pile of each individual item and it will take some time for it to dry out, but it will later provide reliable protection against all kinds of stains by not allowing them to settle on your rug's surface. This way, your items will remain fresh much longer and they will be a lot easier to clean the next time.
Up to 6 months stain protection guarantee, recommended for high traffic areas + prolonging the life of your carpeting.
There are many bugs (such as carpet beetles and cockroaches) that find carpets comfortable. If you wish, your technician can treat your floor covers against certain pest bugs so you can be sure that you won’t have to deal with any creepy crawlies in the future.
Frequently asked questions
Q: How much time does the service take?
A: Well, it depends on a lot of things. To give you a rough example, a single bedroom carpet usually takes around 30 minutes. But keep in mind that factors such as the condition of the carpet need to be considered as well.
Q: How many technicians will come?
A: We will send a single certified technician to your place. He will bring all the necessary equipment and detergents to complete the rug cleaning service on site.
Q: Can the technician move the furniture around?
A: Well, if it comes to a coffee table and a chair or two, sure, no problem – the cleaner will be happy to help as long as it’s something minor. But when it comes to heavy furniture, you should prepare the room in advance.
Q: How long does it take for the carpet to dry out?
A: Carpets made of synthetic fibre will usually air-dry on their own in 3 to 6 hours. Wool, on the other hand, will stretch the timeframe from 4 to 8 hours. We will also bring an air-mover for free. It will significantly speed up the drying process by increasing the airflow.
Q: Can you guarantee successful stain removal?
A: There are stains that simply damage the carpet and leave a permanent mark – hair dye, certain chemicals and so on. However, if we are unable to remove the stain, nothing will!
Q: Do you take the carpet away?
A: No, the technician brings everything necessary to complete any of our professional carpet cleaning services on site. This is way more efficient and time-saving.
Q: What types of carpets and rugs can you clean?
A: The cleaners are trained to treat different carpet pile types. They can tackle wall-to-wall carpets made of synthetic, woolen, and natural fibers. Also, each technician is specialised in rug cleaning of Persian, oriental, area, sculptured, Moroccan, Indian, Tibetan and other rugs.
