It depends on the fabric. Generally we find:

  • The dry cleaning (foam system) method is best for natural fibres such as sisal, linen, cotton, etc.
  • The wet cleaning extraction method is best for upholstery and curtains.

This is dependant on many factors, primarily the amount of carpet & upholstery.

Call us on 020 8884 9146 for a detailed quotation or use our on-line calculator. For a standard 3 bedroom house, please allow 5 hours minimum for carpet cleaning & a further 1 hour minimum for a standard lounge suite.

Drying time varies and is also primarily dependant on the fabrics. Other factors that affect drying time are:

  • the cleaning method used
  • the available ventilation.

We use the well known industry-standard PROCHEM™ machines. 

Please clear away items such as plants, table lamps and ornaments. Allowing us free movement will minimise the risk of any accidents and breakages. A cleared workspace will ensure timely completion of all carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning jobs.
