Servicing Southern Tasmania.
About Kingborough Carpet Care
Kingborough Carpet Care started servicing the Kingborough area in 1996 as a small business with only 1 person running the whole business. Since then we have watched our business grow and now service many happy clients all over southern Tasmania . We have loyal, friendly employees who are only too happy to Solve Your Cleaning Problems.
We have 4 certified carpet cleaning technicians with over 20 years experience between them.
We only use environmentally friendly products and approved cleaning methods. We ALWAYS clean carpets according to the Australian standard for carpet restoration practice using a hot water extraction method, other wise known as steam cleaning.
At Kingborough Carpet Care we offer a range of professional cleaning services to homes and businesses in Southern Tasmania.
Why is regular carpet cleaning important? Did you know that your carpet acts as a containment sink? This means it collects and holds particles that are potentially allergens, preventing them from circulation in the air. Just like dirt gets tracked in from outside so also do car exhausts, cigarette smoke, chemicals, dust, germs, pollens, tar, soot and many other things. These pollutants get lodged in your carpet just like dirt. However, if maintenance is neglected and the carpet becomes excessively soiled, it may become as much a source of contaminant as a collector of them. When someone walks over them they get re-dispersed into the air and your family breathes them.
As an active member of NUCCRA (National Upholstery, Carpet Cleaners & Restorers Association) we employ the lastest carpet care technology and equipment. Kingborough Carpet Care uses truck mounted and portable extraction equipment to service Southern Tasmania.
The correct term for steam cleaning is "hot water extraction". Our thorough process consists of steps that include a prespray treatment, hot water extraction and stain and spot treatment. Depending on the soiling level of the carpet extra treatments are available.
Appropriate cleaning solutions can be utilised for our customers who are allergy sufferers or have other health concerns, we recommend calling and speaking to one of our qualified technicians about what options are best for your home and your family.
Our Kingston based rug cleaning service is able to clean all rug types including specialty, flokati, oriental and shag pile. Rugs can be deodorised and/or treated with a stain protector. We also have treatments available for urine and problem odours.
As part of our service you can simply drop off your rugs to us and you will be called when it is ready to be collected or we can offer a courier service.
Kingborough Carpet Care is often asked to provide domestic cleaning services because of our experienced and thorough staff, range of equipment and eye for detail. This service is provided in circumstances such as the presentation of a property for sale, the cleaning of a rental property between tenant’s leases and builders cleans for new homes and commercial properties.
We place particular emphasis on detail cleaning in order to obtain good results and to present a builders product in its best possible condition. We treat a customer’s home as if it were our own. Rubbish can also be removed from the property, anything from household garbage to old cars.
We can offer cleaning at a fixed price or at an hourly rate depending on the customer’s requirements.

FLOOD EMERGENCY SERVICES
If you have any of the following you could have a flood emergency:
- Washing machine
- Hot water cylinder
- Adjoining homes/flats
- Roof guttering
- Insufficient drains
- Gaps under doors
- Basement rooms
- Water pipes
Coming home or waking up to a flooded carpet is one of the most distressing situations that a home owner can face. Water damage is invariably much worse than it appears. It’s the water that you can’t see that does the damage. Water in the underlay & even the flooring & walls. Bacterial growth begins immediately following water damage. When water damage isn’t dealt with, it rots the carpet and other furnishings and mould spores will grow which will be detrimental to the health of residents. Water damage must always be dealt with immediately, even if it looks minor. Call a professional as soon as you discover water damage. Knowledge about what to do, combined with quick action, can help salvage your home and personal items.
Kingborough Carpet Care has a trained accredited team of technicians. These technicians, using professional inspection and drying equipment, can identify hidden water pockets and dry both your structure and furnishings to acceptable industry standards. We are a recommended repairer for many of the major insurance companies and have a 24 hour emergency call out service.
Kingborough Carpet Care provides water and storm damage restoration, and flood emergency water extraction 24 hour/7 day week service. This includes moisture detection and drying of building and contents using air movers and dehumidifiers as well as the restoration of water damaged carpet, furniture, soft furnishings, clothing, linen etc.
We also carry out Sewerage Remediation Works including the evaluation of structural materials and contents items such as carpet and curtains which are contaminated by sewerage as well as cleaning and decontamination of the site.
WHAT TO DO WHEN WATER DAMAGE OCCURS
In most cases, only a professional can repair water damaged flooring and furnishings. Do not attempt to treat these items yourself. That may only contribute to the problem and cause further damage. The following actions are suggested to minimise damage while waiting for help to arrive:
• STOP the water leak and attend to obvious safety hazards, like electrical shock and personal injury from slips and falls.
CAR INTERIORS & UPHOLSTERY
• Increase airflow with open windows, fans, heating and air conditioning systems.
• Open doors, drawers, cupboards and closets to maintain optimal air circulation and promote drying.
• Move furnishings out of wet areas or protect furniture legs from absorption and damage with triple-folded aluminum foil.
• Hang up draperies & pin up upholstery skirts to prevent water rings, allow leather items to dry at room temperature.
• Wash wet clothes, sheets and linens immediately & hang cleanable fabrics up to dry. Do not store damp items in plastic bags where mould can grow.

CARPET CARE TIPS
Simple Steps to Care For Your Health & Your Carpet
Clean carpets mean healthy homes. Did you know that your carpets can affect your families health? Indoor air can be more polluted than outdoor air. The main reason is because indoor air is trapped, rarely does it get completely replaced. Outdoor air on the other hand gets blown away & new clean air replaces it.
Provide efficient entry matting to reduce tracked in soil at all entrances.
Vacuum routinely with a well maintained, good quality vacuum that will clean and lift carpet pile.
Empty vacuum cleaner bags at regular intervals to allow for optimum performance.
Take care with spots and spills. Have your carpets professionally cleaned at least every twelve months by a trained professional. If you have animals inside, the interval may need to be reduced.
Man’s Best Friend
Dogs and cats may be our best friends, but not necessarily the best friends of our carpet. The next time you encounter an animal “accident” immediately absorb as much liquid as possible. Treat the area with one teaspoon of neutral white or colorless detergent in a cup of lukewarm water. Make sure the detergent is bleach free. Absorb this into white tissues or toweling. Then blot the area with one tablespoon clear or sudsy, uncoloured household ammonia in one cup of water. Again absorb this into toweling. Then blot the area with one part white vinegar to two parts water. Absorb the area with toweling until it is as dry as possible. Place several dry white terry cloths over the area and weigh down. Allow to dry a minimum of six hours.
If immediate action is taken to remove the animal stains, little or no change in colour should occur and that “accident” will not become apparent after your carpet has been professionally cleaned. However, if the pet “accident” is forgotten about or not discovered they will return to haunt you. Dried urine will smell like strong ammonia when humidity is high or when the spot is rewetted. Feaces and urine can contain harmful bacteria. A spot that is small on the surface of carpeting is often many times larger on the underside. The damage caused by aged urine generally requires professional restoration and sometimes removal of the offending carpet. Kingborough Carpet Care has methods available to minimise the discolouration, disinfect the area and reduce the smell. It is often impossible, however, to completely restore the original appearance of a textile furnishing that has been damaged with aged pet urine.
