- carpet cleaning
Thanks for heads up for Rug Doctor, I work for them.
Best machine I have ever used and i used to clean carpets for a living!
If you have a Morrisons near they are the cheapest place to rent from for detergent and rental.
Make sure you take 2 forms if Into the store ie proof of address (household bill) the and a proof of signature ie driving licence.Posted 4 years ago
Mrs B is requiring the carpet cleaned due to dirt from dug kids and general grubbiness.
1. Pay a man to do
2. hire a machine and gubbings
3. buy a machine (not far of the cost of hiring)and we could clean other carpets at leisure.
Any recommendations of machines to hire/buy?

how soon after cleaning can you put furniture back on the carpet? want to do ours but to do so would either require moving the contents of the house outside into the road or a mixture of tetris and jenga to generally shuffle things around whilst we clean one patch at a time…..
so its about 30quid to hire the machine, how much to budget for cleaning products on top of that?
carpet has no big stains but its generally discoloured through walked in dirt in the high traffic areas, noticeable when you moves rugs for example!Posted 4 years agomolgripsSubscriber
Buy the cheapest Vax carpet cleaner. We paid about £80 and have used it often.
It doens’t take long to dry – just go out for the day and you’re done. We paid a bloke to come around and do ours and he used a Karcher machine that did the exact same thing. Waste of money. He did however give us the tip to use laundry detergent intsead of carpet shampoo. I intend to try this this weekend.
Our hall stairs and landing carpets are properly filthy, so I’m going to hoover, then go over with a stiff brush, hoover again, rub detergent in with the brush then use the carpet cleaner with water.Posted 4 years ago
If you want to put the furniture straight back on the carpet put pieces of kitchen foil under the legs of the items.
I always do a second clean at 45 degrees to the original line as you’ll pick more dirt up.
I also use the hand tool to do all the edges and doorways before cleaning the main area as it saves you getting wet knees and makes for a better job.
Oh and Morrisons do a weekend deal from 4.00pm on a Friday till 10:00am Monday for only £25 plus the detergent you need.Posted 4 years agoRusty MacSubscriber
If you can’t be arsed to do it yourself I can recommend someone in Aberdeen that does an excellent job. We have used him a couple of times in the past and are planning on getting him in to do the carpets in our house once the workmen have finished ripping it to bits.
My emails is in my profile if you want his details.Posted 4 years agonealgloverMember
Has anyone used these machines (the hand attachment obviously) with car interiors?
They work ok on car interiors if you use the right cleaning solution.
I would charge less than the hire of the machine and a bottle of cleaning solution to do an interior shampoo though 😉Posted 4 years ago
