Carpet Steam Cleaning Melbourne

Carpet Cleaning Gold Coast

Drymaster Carpet Cleaning in Melbourne has been steam cleaning carpets since 1990 with tremendous success and many repeat clients.

The team at Drymaster work with customers on their Carpet Cleaning Services in Melbourne, to give them a finished result they are happy with. Whether it’s a commercial property or your own home, Drymaster are the ones to call when it comes to Carpet Cleaning in Melbourne.

There are two main methods of steam cleaning carpets, which are explained in detail below.


The one step method of carpet cleaning is where companies use a portable machine and can clean your carpets using a one step process. These machines are very similar to those that you can hire from your local hardware store.The way the one step steam cleaning works is, the machine is filled with a mixture of water and detergent. Unfortunately using this method of steam cleaning, means often leaving a detergent residue behind, which then promotes resoiling. This one step method of steam cleaning is over 20 years old and is not the preferred method by reputable carpet cleaners. However, it, unfortunately, is a method that a lot of budget style of carpet cleaning Melbourne companies utilise.


Thankfully Drymaster does not use a one stage steam cleaning process, but instead uses the following, Drymaster Six Stage Steam Cleaning Process:

  1. Your carpet is pre sprayed with a biodegradable cleaning solution.
  2. Drymaster then agitates the prespray through your carpet using a floor polisher and brush. This helps target those tougher stains and soils that are ingrained into the carpet fibres.
  3. A fibre rinse product is then added to the carpet steam cleaning process.
  4. Following that, a deodoriser is added to the cleaning process to help remove those lingering smells.
  5. Once the above has been completed any stains that require further treatment are accessed and treated if necessary.
  6. Carpet is now steam cleaned and vacuumed.

Carpet Dry Cleaning Services

Along with steam cleaning, you can opt for a method we call Dry Cleaning. At Drymaster Carpet Cleaning the team has been using this dry cleaning method to clean carpets across Melbourne since 1990.

It is an alternative to steam cleaning, and when appropriately used, Dry Carpet Cleaning can be very successful. For those of you that have carpets cleaned regularly, we recommend alternating between the two methods throughout the year. Perhaps consider steam carpet cleaning in the summer months and dry carpet cleaning in the winter months.

Drymaster is the only carpet cleaning company in Melbourne that offers both dry cleaning and steam cleaning. Drymaster technicians carries both Dry and Steam cleaning equipment in the vehicle and can advise with method is best for you on inspection of your carpet.


The Drymaster team find that Dry Cleaning for Carpets is best for high traffic areas as it’s a quick drying carpet cleaning process (usually 1 hour).  That works well if you have an Air BnB or rental property you need to turn around quickly, or a carpeted area with high turnover use and limited downtime. The only disadvantage to Dry Carpet Cleaning is that the process will not work well for particularly stained and dirty carpets. Usually, that means carpets in restaurants and hotels can be freshened up using Dry Cleaning, but when they are extremely stained, it’s recommended to steam clean.

The Drymaster 5 stage Dry Carpet Cleaning Services in Melbourne:
  1. The carpet is vacuumed before cleaning.
  2. Your carpet is then pre sprayed with a biodegradable solution.
  3. Any specific spots and stains are pre treated prior.
  4. The Dry Clean process is then used on your carpet
  5. To finish, the Drymaster team then rake the carpet to reset the pile.

Stain removal and spot dye services in Melbourne

Drymaster Carpet Cleaning Services in Melbourne also offers a spot dyeing and colour repair service for those permanent stains that can’t be removed. Usually, these are the stains that have been around for a while that become permanent, and that’s when the team would suggest Carpet Spot Dyeing and Colour Repair.

Permanent stains on carpets can be a result of bleaching agents, pet urine and products spilt onto the carpet. What happens is when a product is dropped onto the carpet, the chemical composition can affect the carpet fibres, in some cases permanently removing the colour from carpets.

The Spot Dyeing process begins with matching the discoloured areas of your carpet to the original carpet colour. Following that, the team can return it to its original state.

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.

Please see the photos above and the video below of some of our recent permanent stain spot dyeing work.

Pet urine and odour treatments

Pet and urine cleaning in Melbourne

Urine in carpet is relatively easy to remove from the carpet fibers if the urine has not traveled 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 Pet and urine cleaning:

  1. Steam clean and treat the carpet fibres only. This involves steam cleaning the carpets and applying odorcide to the carpet fibres.
  2. Treat affected area with urine treatments and use a water claw (see video) to extract urine from carpet and underlay. This involves cleaning the carpet + using a water claw + using odorcide.
  3. 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 for Cleaning:

pet with urine on carpetYou 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 fibers 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 for Cleaning

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 fibers. 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 for Cleaning

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 specialized 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 for Cleaning

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 in Melbourne

Water Damage / Wet Carpet Cleaning Melbourne

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.

  1. Call out to the premises and extract water using powerful vacuum extraction machinery.
  2. Apply browning treatment to carpet to prevent water stains.
  3. Move furniture on to foam blocks to avoid further damage.
  4. Lift corner of carpet and inspect for damage underneath carpet.
  5. Install drying equipment such as air movers and / or dehumidifiers and leave these on site until area is dry.
  6. Call back to premises on daily basis to check drying progress.
  7. Relay carpet and underlay when dry.
  8. Steam clean and deodorise carpet on completion of restoration.

Water Damage

Notes on water restoration:

  1. An area such as a bedroom will normally take between 24-48 hours to dry completely using drying equipment.
  2. 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

(Water damage can be severe, although we are a Melbourne Carpet Cleaning company, out technicians offer the highest level of water damage restoration.
