Yes, in most circumstances, we require both electricity and access to hot water in order to clean your carpets. If you are moving house, please ensure these utilities remain connected, until after carpet cleaning. We do operate a truck mounted system which can be used in some situations where there is no hot water or electricity available, however this depends on driveway access and is not usually an option for apartments above the ground floor.

Our technicians are highly trained professionals. They use a special range of cleaning solutions, and know which stain treatments to use for each different type of stain. However successful stain removal depends on several factors and some carpet stains may be permanent if they have been left untreated for an extended period of time or if you have tried to remove them with over the counter stain removers. We do our best, however we can’t guarantee to remove every carpet stain. For the best results getting stains removed call Black Gold Carpet Cleaning for our professional advice.

For best results, we ask that you vacuum carpets and move smaller items and breakables prior to cleaning. Due to Health & Safety Regulations, we do not move large items of furniture. We usually clean around and under larger items where possible.Vacuum cleaning is best doen before carpet cleaning

You can walk on the carpets straight away. Your carpets will only be slightly damp after cleaning, so as long as your shoes are clean, it is ok to walk on the carpet immediately. However please be careful when moving from carpeted areas to hard floors as it may be slippery.

carpet cleaning Melbourne FAQs 

Our best advice on how to clean carpet spills, is, blot the liquid gently with a clean white cloth/towel. Do not rub. If the spot is still visible, use a clean white damp cloth and keep blotting, change to a clean cloth once colour starts to transfer from the carpet to the cloth. If the stain has not been removed, call Black Gold professional carpet cleaners. Do not use store bought carpet cleaners on stains as they may set the stain and make it impossible to remove, or worse, bleach your carpet! Coffee, red wine, cordial and pet stains almost always require professional carpet cleaning to remove, however you can try this blotting method immediately to try to remove as much liquid as possible.

Tips for bleach on carpet

It is important to act quickly to avoid further water damage. Try to remove as much of the water as possible by placing towels on the wet carpet. DO NOT stand on the towels or walk on the area if at all possible as this will cause the water to soak through and damage the underlay and floor underneath. Replace towels with dry ones, once they become soaked. Try to ensure there is good ventilation in the area by opening the windows if possible and place a fan on the opposite side of the wet area to blow air across the wet carpet towards the window. Call Black Gold Carpet Cleaning 0403 254 080, to professionally extract the remaining water and apply an anti microbial treatment to prevent mold and a solution to prevent the carpet turning brown.
