How much does it cost to have your carpets cleaned?
That’s a question many of us ask when moving house and we are in need of an end of lease carpet clean. Using data collected from hundreds of Australian Carpet Cleaners we were able to discover that the price of carpet cleaning varied greatly. Initial results show that bedroom carpet cleans vary from $15 per room up to $60 per room. With such a variation in pricing it begs to differ why? A lot of cheaper carpet cleans are related to either temporary specials or new carpet cleaners trying to build a customer base. The cheaper prices in some cases come with catches like extra travel costs and limited services included such as carpet deodorising, stain prevention and other carpet cleaning services generally included in the more expensive prices. The old you get what you pay for is definitely appropriate when it comes to getting your carpets cleaned. Here at KO Carpet Cleaning we charge between $30 – $40 per room.

Now it’s time to start cleaning your carpets, a few bedrooms and maybe a living room and lounge room. All going well the carpet cleaner removes the stains, well it should take you less then a couple of hours or $50. So there you have it, it’s only set you back $165, but wait I have to take the bloody thing back to where I hired it from and have it checked to receive my bond back.
