The First Company to use Carpet Dry Cleaning!
Elite Carpet Dry Cleaning was one of the first carpet cleaning companies in Australia to use carpet dry cleaning instead of the more traditional carpet steam cleaning. They found that carpet dry cleaning is a better solution for carpet maintenance based on their practical experience and the fantastic feedback they received from their customers. Elite clean and protect more than just carpets. They have expanded their services to include upholstery curtains and vertical drapes, car interiors, mattresses, rugs and mats cleaning too.
