Fleas

Fleas are a common problem in Canberra homes, especially those with pets. You may discover a problem with fleas even if you do not have pets, if previous owners of your property kept cats or dogs. Fleas can also be carried on other animals like rabbits, foxes, squirrels, rats andmice.

Although fleas do not have wings, they have incredibly powerful elongated legs. These allow them to jump long distances and move easily between you and your pets, leaving behind itchy bites. Successful control requires flea treatment of both your property and your pets, if you have them.

We offer safe, effective treatments for your home or business to ensure complete control of your flea infestation.

As parasites, the greatest concern about the presence of fleas in your home or business comes from their bites. Although these are not painful, they can result in an uncomfortable itch or reactive rash. Your pets could also develop allergies to the flea saliva.

Flea
Cockroach Control

Cockroaches

Roaches can quickly become a menace, as they are fast-breeding insects that can survive in the most adverse conditions. It’s also fair to say that they have developed immunity against certain pesticides, which makes it hard to eliminate a severe infestation with a product bought over the counter. This is why it’s wise to hire a reputable pest management company in Canberra that can offer you guaranteed results and effective solutions.

This way, you’ll avoid:

Ants

Our Canberra Pest Control technicians understand the habits of each species of ant and have a powerful range of pest control techniques to deal with ants. We provide the reassurance that the ant problem has been fully dealt with, and offer a call-out service to deal with ants and other pest control problems in the home. Our service is fast, effective and offers the highest level of safety for your family and pets.

Spiders

With over 20 years of experience, we know how to protect you from spiders.

We ate the home of effective spider pest control services in the Canberra area. Although spiders can help get rid of other pests that may be living in your home, some spiders are harmful to both humans and animals. Hiring an exterminator for spiders is your best choice if you experience an abundance of spiders in your home. We use organic methods to keep your home pest and chemical free. For all of your spider pest control needs call us.

Brace yourself, spiders are not insects, they’re arachnids! Because they’re not insects, they have different habits than common insects. Their varying habits make controlling spiders a challenge for average pest control operators. Spiders prey on other insects. They are constantly hunting.

Spider Habits, Behaviour, and Diet

Silverfish

The first thing that comes in mind at the mention of a silverfish is a fish. This is not too bad a guess. The silverfish is a small, wingless insect which also goes by the name fishmoth. The best name for this insect is the LespismaSacchrina. Its fish name is coined from its fish-like appearance. It is a nocturnal (active at night) insect that lives in humid and warm temperatures. The insect moves pretty fast and is hard to see. Its diet is starchy foods, fabric and paper.

In spite the fact that these insects do not bite, they can be a nuisance. Considering their diet, they can cause massive destruction to your clothes and documents. Again, considering they are hard tosee, it is advisable to hire an expert in silverfish eradication in Canberra. The exterminators understand the mannerism of these insects and will use the most appropriate method to get rid of them once and for all.

Drymaster Carpet Cleaning Canberra

Carpet Cleaning FAQs

Established in 1989 Drymaster has operations in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide, Perth, Brisbane, Gold Coast, Newcastle, Central Coast, Wollongong and Canberra.

We are an Australian owned family business with a network of owner operators throughout Australia.

Drymaster have been Steam cleaning and Dry cleaning carpets since 1990.

We can also offer you fabric and leather sofa cleaning, tile and grout cleaning, mattress cleaning, pet stain services, water damage restoration etc. Please visit our service page to get a full list of our services.

The majority of carpet cleaners only have the skills and equipment to provide one, not both services.

A professional carpet cleaner should carry both dry and steam cleaning systems in the vehicle.
Both methods have their place and can be used when appropriate.

A lot of factors come into play when deciding which system to use.

For example;

  • Your carpet is cleaned regularly; You can alternate between dry and steam on each cleaning visit.
  • Your carpet has pets regularly walking and soiling the carpet; Steam cleaning recommended.
  • You have purchased a new house and you are cleaning the carpet; As you don’t know the history of the carpet cleaning it is best to perform a deep steam clean.
  • You have visitors coming to your house tomorrow and you want to give your carpets a quick freshen up and have limited drying time; Dry cleaning recommended.

 

Drymaster technicians carry both Dry and Steam cleaning systems in the vehicle.

After inspecting your carpet the technician will advise you on the best method to use.

On average, it will take approximately 25 minutes per room. This time can vary greatly depending on the amount of furniture to be moved, how soiled the carpet is, and any necessary spot removal treatments.

Drymaster will include furniture moving for the following items: sofas and lounge suites, tables and chairs, beds on wheels and light furniture that one technician could expect to move.

Furniture that we don’t move: bookcases, fishtanks, waterbeds, china cabinets, computers and delicate or fragile items.

It is always best to remove items to an area that is not being cleaned before we arrive.

A spot is a substance that is adhered to the carpet fibre, but has not become set.

A stain is more advanced and may have become set.

A professional carpet cleaner will remove all spots (food, grease, mud, etc).

A professional carpet cleaner will have more problems removing a set or permanent stain compared to a spot. Drymaster carries a large amount of stain removal solutions for the removal of coffee, tea, blood, cola, urine, red wine etc.

If the stain has not set and become permanent, stain removal can be successful.

Our Policy for Stain removal is as follows:

Normal spotting and stain removal is included in our cleaning price and our cleaning process.

If at the completion of cleaning there are stains that have not been removed in the cleaning process that require extra treatments such as “Heat transfer methods” or “Spot dyeing” these procedures will be discussed with you and a quote given for the removal of these more difficult stains.

We will also discuss with you whether the stain will respond to extra treatment and the likelihood of the stain being able to be removed, partially removed or lightened or if the stain is deemed permanent.
Often extra treatments as mentioned above are not required as 85% of spots and stains are removed in the initial cleaning process.

From 30 minutes to 8 hours. It depends on what system is used and the degree soiling.

If you use our superior Dry Fusion system, we can have your carpets dry between 30 minutes and 1 hour. If your carpets are extremely soiled and we need to use a 6 stage system, it can take between 2 hours and 8 hours to dry.

The average drying time is 4 hours.

We do not guarantee to remove permanent stains in the cleaning process but can offer additional services for permanent stains such as ; spot dyeing, colour repair, invisible mending.

Drymaster Carpet Cleaning will guarantee to clean to Australian Standards 1995-3775.

If you are not happy with our service we will always return to your premises and re clean any areas of concern provided these areas are not affected by fair wear and tear, traffic lane discolouration, fading, permanent stains etc..
Any claims or re-cleans will only be accepted up to 7 days from initial clean.

Those looking for the best pest control Canberra has to offer only want one thing: a clean property free from potential pest damage and health hazards.

Drymaster pest coverage

Fleas

Even without pets, you might encounter fleas if previous occupants had cats or dogs. These pests can even hitch a ride on various animals, including small rats and other vermin.

Fleas, despite lacking wings, possess powerful legs that enable them to jump long distances and easily transfer between humans and pets, often leaving itchy bites. While not painful, these can still cause discomfort or rashes, and pets may develop allergies to flea saliva.

As such, effective flea control involves treating both your property and your pets’ area. At Drymaster, our treatments are safe and efficient, ensuring a thorough eradication of flea infestations. 

 

Cockroaches

These pests are fast-breeding and resilient, often developing resistance to certain pesticides. This makes DIY solutions less effective against severe infestations. 

With our professional pest management services at Drymaster, not only can we help eradicate cockroaches, but we can also safeguard against health risks, damage to your reputation or image, contaminated food supplies, and worsened property hygiene due to their faeces and shed skins.

 

Ants

These pests get into the tiniest cracks and crevices, compromising food storage that isn’t sealed properly. Different species of ants even have a painful bite that could linger long-term.

However, just like with other pests, the habits of ants are well understood by our Canberra Pest Control technicians here at Drymaster. Rest assured that they’ll use a range of effective techniques for ant control, ensuring complete resolution of your ant problems. Using our call-out service, you can prioritise the safety of your family and pets.

 

Spiders

While spiders can be beneficial in controlling other pests, a number of them pose risks to humans and animals. Plus, since they’re arachnids, they have unique habits compared to insects, making them challenging to deal with. 

For instance, they vary in their habitat preferences. Some are drawn to moist environments, while others favour dry, warm areas. This diversity means that spiders can be found in various parts of a home, from damp basements and crawl spaces to the drier environments of attics and air vents.

As such, we at Drymaster have a holistic approach to controlling spiders. If you’re looking for pest control Canberra-wide, you’ll be pleased to know that we even have organic methods to ensure both a pest-free and chemical-free environment. 

 

Silverfish

Silverfish, or Lespisma saccharina, are small, wingless insects that thrive in warm, humid places. Active at night, they are fast-moving and elusive, feeding on starchy foods, fabric, and paper. 

While they don’t bite, silverfish can cause significant damage to clothing and important documents. For that reason, our expert exterminators at Drymaster are also skilled in silverfish eradication, employing the most appropriate and effective methods for complete removal.

Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)

How often should I schedule pest inspections in Canberra?

For places like Canberra, the general rule for scheduling pest inspections and treatment is at least once a year. However, this could be even more frequent if your property has a history of pest problems or is in an area known for high pest activity. 

Regular inspections are key to thwarting infestations and safeguarding your home against potential damage and health risks. This could include those from pests like fleas, cockroaches, ants, spiders, and silverfish – all of which we take care of at Drymaster.

 

Remember, consistent care is always better than a reactive solution, especially when it comes to pests.

With this, reach out to us at Drymaster and have our local pest experts treat your premises. This way, you can enjoy a convenient service without having to constantly search for pest control Canberra-wide.

 

How long does a typical pest control treatment last?

The longevity of a pest control treatment varies based on the specific pest issue and the treatment method employed. However, treatment would generally last from a few months to a full year. 

For instance, our general household pest treatment services are good for several months, with us even providing a six-month warranty. On the other hand, our full general household treatment would include a twelve-month warranty after servicing. 

Plus, to give you a better idea of what pest control Canberra offers, here’s a complete rundown of our safe pest control methods:
