Carpets are a big investment, and proper care and maintenance are key. If you are looking to hire professional carpet cleaners, you want to be 100 percent certain they have the skills and equipment to get the job done.

In this article, we’ll share with you our top five picks for carpet cleaners in the Canberra region. These five businesses are popular with the locals and have stellar online reviews.

What Makes a Great Carpet Cleaner

If you’ve ever tried to scrub your carpets in the past, you’ll know just how difficult it is to achieve professional results.

The best carpet cleaners transform your carpet – they remove stains and restore it back to its original condition.

So, what exactly sets the best carpet cleaners apart? Here’s what the public believes:

  • The right equipment. Professional carpet cleaners use specialist equipment to clean carpet. That might be an industrial strength vacuum or a steam cleaner. Always opt for carpet cleaners that have the right equipment for the job. Better yet, seek out cleaners who keep up with the latest industry innovations and new carpet care technologies.
  • Skilled. The right equipment is important, but the best carpet cleaners know exactly what to do with it. Skilled carpet cleaners can get the highest performance out of their tools.
  • Reliable. As with most services businesses, the best carpet cleaners show up on time and get the job done on schedule. No waiting around. No last-minute appointment cancellation. Just good old-fashioned reliable service.
  • Respectful. Whether you are inviting a cleaner into your family home, investment property, or office, they should be respectful toward you and your space.
  • Well priced. The best carpet cleaners charge a fair price for their services. They are not interested in ripping off their clients.

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!)


chauntelle 1:53 pm 23 Nov 10

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

has anyone heard any reviews about ‘Bebrite’ cleaning and carpet services?

Servicing all ACT and surrounds.

Feel free to contact me to discuss your needs, arrange a quote or to book.

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

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…

dorrie 9:51 am 08 Nov 10

Call Tony at All Class
0418 242 012.

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

Amanda Hugankis 9:15 am 08 Nov 10

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

trickyxr 9:12 am 08 Nov 10

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.

VacToTheFuture 9:07 am 08 Nov 10

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

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 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.

grumpyrhonda 8:06 pm 07 Nov 10

Morgan’s Carpets do our lounge room and lounge suite every November for us. They do a good job. We are in the Gungahlin area.
