Carpet Steam Cleaning Canberra
Drymaster Carpet Cleaning has been operating in the Canberra since 1990 and has the experience, equipment and procedures to service your premises.There are many varied methods of steam cleaning your carpets. The most common form of steam cleaning is a 1 stage process, where a cleaner will bring to your home a portable machine, similar to the machine that you can rent from the local supermarket or hardware store. This steam cleaning machine is filled with water and detergent and your carpet is cleaned without any pre spray or agitation. This method cleans your carpet without a rinse process and unfortunately leaves detergent residue in your carpet which will promote rapid re soiling. This steam cleaning method is over 20 years old and is not the preferred method by most carpet cleaners today, but unfortunately is still being used by a lot of budget type cleaning companies.
Drymaster DOES NOT use a 1 stage steam cleaning process.
The Drymaster 6 Stage steam cleaning process:
- Carpet is pre sprayed with biodegradable cleaning solution.
- Carpet is cleaned with floor polisher and pad / brush to agitate cleaning solution through carpet fibres. This process also helps loosen embedded soils in traffic areas and helps with spot and stain removal.
- Any remaining spots and stains are treated.
- Fibre rinse is added to the steam cleaning process.
- Deodouriser is added to the steam cleaning process.
- Carpet is now steam cleaned and vacuumed.
Carpet Dry Cleaning Canberra
Drymaster Carpet Cleaning Canberra also offers our customers the carpet Dry Cleaning method.
Dry Carpet Cleaning is an alternative to steam cleaning and if used correctly can clean carpets successfully. If you have your carpets cleaned on a regular basis you should consider alternating between the two systems.

Advantages of Dry carpet cleaning: Very quick drying (normally 1 hour)

Stain removal and spot dye services Canberra
Drymaster carpet cleaning Canberra is pleased to announce a new Spot dyeing and colour repair service for permanent stains.
When a stain becomes permanent it is time to move to the next step – Spot dyeing and colour repair.
This is a process that is beyond cleaning for the repair of permanent stains.
Bleaching agents, pet urine, medications, acne treatments and some cleaning products can alter the chemical
composition of fibres permanently removing the colour out of carpets.
Spot dyeing involves matching discoloured areas of your carpet to the original carpet colour and returning it to
its original state.
If your carpet has been damaged by pet urine, bleach, curry, or other forms of permanent carpet stain, we can
restore the area using an effective spot dyeing technique.
Even if you have areas that have been faded by sunlight, flooding (water damage) or other forms of discolouration,
we can match your carpet colour for you.
Pet urine and odour treatments Canberra
Drymaster carpet cleaning Canberra has various techniques, methods and chemicals to deal with urine in carpet and sofas.
Urine in carpet is relatively easy to remove from the carpet fibres if the urine has not travelled underneath.
If a pet has been urinating in the same spot and you think the urine has travelled through to the underlay and floor a
different approach is needed.
There are 3 of options:
- Steam clean and treat the carpet fibres only.
- Treat affected area with urine treatments and use a water claw (see video) to extract urine from carpet and underlay.
- In severe cases the carpet and underlay may have to be lifted and treatments performed from underneath.
When we have pets on our carpets and furniture there can be various problems associated with cleaning.
The following information will help you understand these problems and also explain the various treatments available.
Scenario number 1
You have your carpets cleaned and the pet odour and /or stains become more evident after cleaning. This can happen because you were not aware of urine soiled areas. The urine soiled areas are “hidden” or not noticeable in your carpet and cleaning the carpet has activated the urine salt deposits and the odour can be worse than when cleaning commenced. This scenario does not happen all the time but it can occur. It can also occur days after the cleaning has been completed. If odour is present after cleaning this can normally be rectified by applying odorcide to the carpet as long as the urine deposits are in the carpet fibres and not in the carpet backing / underlay or floorboards. This method does not involve lifting of the carpet and is the most economical option.
Scenario number 2
There are no apparent urine stains in your carpet or furniture but stains appear after cleaning has been
completed. This happens because the urine deposits are dormant in the carpet backing or underlay and are
“drawn” to the surface in the cleaning process. Remember; a carpet cleaner can only clean the carpet fibres
not the underlay or floorboards underneath, so when urine deposits are underneath they can “wick”
through overnight to the carpet fibres. This problem can normally be fixed by lifting the carpet and
replacing the underlay and treating the floor.
Example of a carpet being pulled back and exposing the urine affected underlay and floorboards.
Scenario number 3
There are yellow or brown urine pet stains on your carpet that are PERMANENT.
What is the next step if you have permanent pet stains?
If you have permanent pet stains after your carpets have been cleaned the next step is to engage a
specialist who deals with permanent stain colour repair to match the colour of your carpet.
This is a specialised job that is performed after the carpet is cleaned and involves applying reducing agents
and / or carpet dyes to the stained area. Please contact us if you require colour repair service as we can
normally quote this service by evaluating photographs of the permanent stain.
Example of a successful colour restoration / spot dye treatment on a permanent urine stain.
Scenario number 4
The carpet is so heavily contaminated that no amount of cleaning, deodorising, stain treatments, odorcide
etc. will get rid of the odour or stains. In this case it’s time for the carpet and underlay to go to the tip.
Remember; if you dispose of your carpet and underlay because of severe urine damage make sure you
treat the floor before laying new carpet.

Water Damage Wet Carpet Canberra
Drymaster has been dealing with water damage and wet carpets in the Canberra for many years.
When disaster strikes such as a washing machine overflow, bath overflow, burst pipe, rainwater from balcony etc, water damage restoration procedures must be followed.
It is not as simple as just sucking up the water and cleaning the carpet and letting the area dry naturally.
It is not the wet carpet that is the problem it is the underlay and the wood or concrete floor that needs to be dried.
If the underlay is not dried or replaced you will end up with mould and odour problems.
Our procedure for wet carpet is as follows.
- Call out to the premises and extract water using powerful vacuum extraction machinery.
- Apply browning treatment to carpet to prevent water stains.
- Move furniture on to foam blocks to avoid further damage.
- Lift corner of carpet and inspect for damage underneath carpet.
- Install drying equipment such as air movers and / or dehumidifiers and leave these on site until area is dry.
- Call back to premises on daily basis to check drying progress.
- Relay carpet and underlay when dry.
- Steam clean and deodorise carpet on completion of restoration.
Notes on water restoration:
- An area such as a bedroom will normally take between 24-48 hours to dry completely using drying equipment.
- When a premises has been affected by sewage overflow we do not attempt carpet restoration. The carpet and underlay must be removed from the premises and disposed and the flooring treated and deodorised. Australian Standards does not allow restoration of sewage
