Best Carpet Cleaners in Canberra


When did you last have your carpets professionally cleaned? The reality is that no matter how often you vacuum or spot clean, you can’t beat the professionals when it comes to removing dirt, grime, dust and allergens.

Most carpet cleaners recommend having your carpets cleaned every 12-18 months, or more frequently if you have children or pets, or suffer from severe allergies.

Regular cleans are important because they extend the life of your carpet and keep them looking their best.

In this article. we’ll share our top picks for carpet cleaners in the Canberra region.

Let’s get started.

What makes a great professional carpet cleaner?

If you’ve ever attempted a DIY carpet clean at home, you’ll know how difficult it can be to achieve professional results on your own. But how do you find a professional carpet cleaner who is committed to their craft and will ensure a quality outcome?

Asking the following questions can help:

  • What type of cleaning equipment do you use? Professional carpet cleaners use specialist equipment to clean carpet. such as industrial-strength vacuums and steam cleaners. It may be beneficial to seek out cleaners who keep up with the latest industry innovations and new carpet care technologies.
  • What steps will you follow to clean my carpets? A thorough clean may include steps such as pre-vacuuming, spot stain treatment, shampooing and steam cleaning.
  • How can I expect my carpets to look afterwards? Some stains can’t be removed even with the toughest professional clean. A great carpet cleaner will be honest and manage your expectations.
  • Do you have before and after photos you can share? Take a look at samples of previous cleaning jobs to get an idea of their work standard.
  • How much do you charge? The best carpet cleaners charge a fair price for their services. Pricing should be clear and transparent.

I have experienced some annual Carpet steam cleaning services and felt very happy with Gift4mum Cleaning ACT. The thing makes them differrent from some other I had used that they were able to steam carpet until the water extracted from carpet looks clear. My little son is asthmatic, so clean carpet is more important than just looks like new. Highly recommend them for similar tasks.

I agree with zilauh. It’s not necessarily a bad thing having good memories of party spillages. pain in the neck if you need a bond back I’ve used twice, and both times they’ve been very prompt and reliable.

Have tried a few companies but found Drymaster to be the best. They were recommended to me by a friend, very happy.

I’ve only recently moved to Canberra, but I’ve so far tried two carpet cleaning companies. One of them is and the other one was They were both as good as each other. Nothing compared to the carpet cleaners in Melbourne, cutting corners.

I have a 3 year old and she is quite messy, so the carpets always have all sorts of stains on them. To be honest both carpet cleaners were quite impressive and did a great job removing the stains. I would highly recommend both companies.

A friend of mine also recommended me these two carpet cleaners – ProChoice Carpet Cleaning – Drymaster Carpet Cleaning

they are on my list for the future. You might want to check them out too.

good luck with it all!

Hi Mate,

We have recently moved from watson to gunghalin. The Apartment in watson surely needed some good cleaning as we have lived there for more than 3 years. Few good parties also added marks on the carpet which we identified later as good memories !

We had this mob do the carpets, did good job in one go.

My 2 cents.

Hi tiffwat, just wondering did you have any luck with your carpet cleaner? I am looking for one now and wondering the same thing (ie. which ones are good and more importantly which ones are NO good!)

The only reviews I have heard have not been good. I have heard that sometimes (if you have a regular clean) they dont turn up and dont call.
Also, I have had personal experience with this (as I previously worked in Real Estate), I used them a couple of times and was not happy. Each time I used them I had to get them to return to rectify the job.

N.B I now do cleaning, feel free to email me

You can try the Carpet Cleaning London services. Whit more than a decade of reliable carpet cleaning.

Reprobate Reprobate 10:43 am 08 Nov 10

Don’t get bent over like I did by a cleaning service that advertises with happy similing kiddies of “5 rooms for $95”. When he turned up it was suddenly $160 because “you didn’t tell me you had light coloured carpet”! Of course as the booking was late in the only day I had off for 4 weeks and I had moved all the furniture out, I was over a barrel – but will NEVER use him again…

Call Tony at All Class
0418 242 012.

Reliable, friendly and do a great job. They have 2 or 3 vans.

2nd Carpets by Rex. I’ve been using them for around 15 years and they are prompt, professional, priced competitively.

Try Peter at Budget carpet care 0412 087 427. I worked with him before he started his own business I know that he has done a large amount of training and has all the latest equipment.

Hercules are great, we use them every few months to clean our office and they do a top job.

Mothy Mothy 7:46 am 08 Nov 10

Try Hercules, I think there’s only two vans in the group. They were recommended to me at the end of my last lease.

Felix the Cat Felix the Cat 5:19 am 08 Nov 10

Carpet Cleaning By Rex Pty Ltd 6292 8977. I have used them a couple of times and they do a good job.

There are lots of good ones out there, pot luck half the time. I know Morgan’s is recognised as one of the best, especially in stain removal, but of course they sub-contract to their drivers. However I had a mate work for them and they were given top-class training in what the various methods and products do to get rid of staining.
