Steam cleaning or dry cleaning carpets

Steam cleaning or dry cleaning carpets.

Do you ever think what is the best way to clean your carpets. The most common method is commercial steam cleaning. In recent years there has be a another method – dry cleaning.

We dry clean our delicate clothes as they normally have special instructions so we don’t damage them. So what about our carpets? Do we damage them when we steam clean?

Steam cleaning uses water and when the job is done your carpets will be wet and need to be dried out. Dry cleaning doesn’t wet the carpet and only uses chemicals to clean.

So wet carpets or chemicals, which is better? The answer is simple. Steam cleaning will get you good results and it’s important to make sure that your carpets are given the best opportunity to dry our. Using fans or opening the windows will help. As long as the carpets dry out in a reasonable time then it will have a minimal affect of the life of your carpet.

Dry cleaning can get good results and you don’t have any concerns about water damage. The only downfall is that steam extraction cleaning will get deep into the carpets  to remove the dirt. My preference is steam cleaning using a professional carpet cleaner and make sure you do everything you can to dry your carpets in the shortest possible time.


The carpet cleaner

The carpet cleaner.

Who are carpet cleaners?  I’ve met a few and they have come from all walks of life.

The industry is dynamic and the diversity of people starting or try to start a business is wide. It’s a business that can be started with little out lay or in some cases a lot. You could by a secondhand van with all the gear you need for $5000.00 or your could buy a new van and the best gear for $10000.00. You could buy an established business for a lot more.

So what the key to success?

Most people don’t really understand the vast difference in equipment and really just want results? So will the $100000.00 business give the same results as the guy who buy the $5000.00 van with second hand gear?

The short answer is well –  probably.  You see if both guys look and maintain the equipment and it’s performing to specifications, then the results won’t vary that much.

The key to running a successful carpet cleaning business is customer service. Listen to the customer and understand what they expect. If you can understand that then you should be able to give them the result they seek.

Be punctual, talk to you customers, maintain your equipment and you can have a successful business with little outlay.

Visit Brisbane Australia

Brisbane Australia – a great place to visit

Brisbane Australia is an amazing City. Called the river city by locals because it’s located on the banks of the Brisbane River. There are many attractions in Brisbane. The city is clean and modern. Some of the sites to see are

South bank. An oasis in the city where you can visit the man made beach and have a swim with the family. many cafes and restaurants are there with a wide variety of menus. Stroll across the river and visit the city center. the old Treasury casino is located next to the river. It has a hotel and gaming room for visitors.

Another area near Brisbane is the Valley where you will find China town. it’s full of shops, bars and restaurants and a great place to get a bargain.

Close to Brisbane is the amazing Gold Coast where all the theme parks like Dreamworld, Movie World and sea World are open all year for tourists and locals. While your at the Gold Coast you can visit the Golden beaches around Surfers Paradise.

On the North side of Brisbane about 50km up the coast you will arrive at the sunshine Coast. it’s much more laid back compared to the Gold coast and the beaches are made of white sand and the water is crystal clear.

To make you trip to Brisbane special i recommend a limousine ride from the airport any of the wonderful locations around the area.
