The prices you will be quoted for carpet cleaning can vary dramatically – so unfortunately, do the outcomes.

Like most things in life, you get what you pay for.  Choice Magazine said it best, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”

With the industry unregulated it is easy to be trapped into hiring an untrained operator, without the sort of equipment and methods that will deliver a quality cleaning outcome.  It is also very easy to be caught in the “bait & switch” tactics employed by too many of the shonky operators out there.  They quote a very low price over the phone, only to dramatically ramp it up when the operator arrives on site to do the work.

But there are some simple tips that can help protect you:

  1. Look for a firm that is a member of the Specialised Cleaning & Restoration Industry Association (SCRIA).  Members are listed on the website
  2. Look for a firm that carries “Certified Firm” status of the IICRC/Clean Trust – the one internationally recognised body for the industry.  All their operators must be trained and qualified through certified IICRC trainers – ask to see the operator’s card confirming this.  A certified firm will also be listed on the IICRC website at
  3. Expect the company to request a visit to provide you a free, no obligation written quote.  Then there will be no surprises for you or them later.
  4. Ask them about the process they will use:
    • They should insist on vacuuming the carpet themselves.  If they want you to do it first, alarm bells should be going off
    • Steam, or Hot Water Extraction as it is more formally known is the best method.
    • Have they discussed specific stains and how they intend to handle them.  Oil based stains require different approaches.  Pet stains are different again.  If the person quoting cannot confidently explain the processes they use and how they are going to specifically handle your situation, they aren’t the professional you need.
  5. Be very wary of websites offering to deliver you multiple quotes simply by filling out an online form.  The companies advertising on these sites tend to be very price driven.  Shop around for quotes by all means.  But do your own homework, understand what you are being quoted and select who you want to receive a quote from.

There are plenty of people with carpet cleaning horror stories.  The cheap price sounded like a good idea at the time.  You have plenty invested in your carpets.  Saving a few dollars on a clean can quickly lead to damaged carpets, a shortened carpet life, or at the very least, carpet that just isn’t clean and your money wasted.

Protect your investment.  Expect to pay a fair price by using a qualified and certified professional and enjoy the guarantee of service that accompanies these industry leaders.

Protect your furniture investment by professional upholstery cleaning

Your couches and dining room chairs get a real workout every day

Whether it is the oils and grease marks on the arms and backs of chairs, spills and accidents, or just the general dirt and grime of use, Clean With Envy can help freshen your furniture and often extend the life and appearance of them as well.

On new or well-maintained furniture, we can discuss the appropriateness of considering application of fabric protection.  We recently carried out fabric protection for a client on a couch that was some years old, but in good condition.  The very next week, a child’s accident with a pen was removed by the client with no permanent marking.  That was a relatively modest investment by the client that proved to be money, very well spent!

For an honest appraisal of what we can do to clean and possibly protect your furniture, give Peter a call on 0430 671 474 to book a no obligation consultation.

With winter upon us, should I hold off getting my carpets steam cleaned?

Not if you are using Clean With Envy!
Our process ensures we don’t over-wet your carpets, and that we extract most of the moisture during our cleaning process.  We will also schedule your job for the morning to assist with drying time.

Over-wetting of carpets can be a real problem with many operators in this industry.  Not so with Clean With Envy and the time of year won’t make a difference to what we can achieve for your carpets – a cleaner and healthier home!

And don’t be fooled by dry-clean only operators.  At Clean With Envy, we are trained and equipped to do steam or dry.  But steam (properly known as ‘hot water extraction’), carried out by a properly trained professional, will give you a better result every time, every season.  If you want to understand more, give Peter a call on 0430 671 474

Is your grout grotty?

You don’t have to live with grotty grout lines and dirty tiles.

You also don’t need to break your back and knees scrubbing them either.

Clean With Envy can work wonders on your grotty grout, often restoring them to an “as new” appearance.  We can also discuss whether sealing your grout (and in some cases your tiles) will make your weekly cleaning job easier.  Sealing isn’t always necessary or appropriate, but we will give you an honest recommendation every time.

Often we are told, “if only we had called you first”.  So don’t wear yourself out scrubbing and don’t keep living with those grotty grout lines.  Call Peter today on 0430 671 474, to arrange a free, no obligation quote.  Tile & Grout Cleaning Frankston South.  Tile & Grout Cleaning Mt Eliza.  Tile & Grout Cleaning Mornington.  Tile & Grout Cleaning Mt Martha.

Of the 4 companies who quoted me, Clean With Envy was the only one that asked to come out and give me a free quote for my carpet cleaning.  Everyone else just asked over the phone how many rooms there were and were there any stairs?  Two said I needed to vacuum before they arrived.  Your professionalism earned Clean With Envy the job.  The work you did (and the stains you removed) have guaranteed that I will be recommending you to my friends.  Anna – Mornington

Sarah raved about the results you achieved in cleaning her tiles.  Loving my clean grout lines – do I thank you for the great work or Sarah for referring me in the first place?  Judy – Mornington

Thanks Peter, I saw the result Monday night and the carpets were unrecognisable – what a difference. Great result.   Rob – Mt Eliza Football Club

We are now ready and looking great for our first Open for Inspection this weekend.  The carpet cleaning has worked out really well and those grout lines – maybe we shouldn’t be selling – LOL!  I guess I’ll be calling you before we move into the new place.  Claire – Mt Eliza

I cannot believe I spent all that time trying to clean my tiles.  Your clean has the grout looking like new.  Thank you so much!   Natasha – Mt Eliza
