    Default Safeway/woolies carpet cleaner hire

    Has anyone hired the carpet cleaner machine from Safeway before? Are the comparable to paying a company? Is it expensive? Our carpet is not bad (18 months old but between renovating and dd it is a tad grubby) but I would like to go over it before our next baby arrives . Can you do fabric sofas with it as well? Thanks everyone!!

    Hi I have hired the Safeway ones before. Think it cost about $40 to hire for 24hrs then you had to buy the detergents separately. It did a good job. It looked so much better afterwards. I never paid for a professional to do it, but I don't think I will when we can do it ourselves.

    Subbing I was thinking of hiring one but not to sure how good it would be

    To get it done professionally its going to cost $100 for 3 rooms which I thought was quite reasonable

    We got one from an IGA (I'm assuming they'd be the same/similar) and it was great. The carpet came up fantastically.

    Forgot to add- it cost about $30-$40 for 24hrs plus the products.

    We get the one from Bunnings, and yes, u do need to buy the cleaners... However, if its something u will do every 3,6,9,12 months etc... It works out cheaper. We always find that doing it ourselves, we get it better than the professionals coz it's our own carpet so we want it looking great iykwim? We Haven't hired a pro in many years now.

    We've rented 'the rug doctor' from IGA before.

    It's great. I had no problems with it. Very easy to use and the cost was great

    Yes it is always quite costly when going for professional carpet cleaning and I think its worth paying.
