Carpet Cleaning Machines

Professional cleaning equipment for home & commercial use

Carpet cleaning machines remove the deep-seated dirt, stains, and allergens that cling to pile. A carpet washer can maintain new carpets and reinvigorate old ones. They allow you to deep clean carpeted and textile flooring, preventing them from looking worn and prolonging their lifecycle. Carpet cleaners are ideal for use at home, offices, shops, cafes, pubs, hotels, and more. They use a spray and extraction system that soaks surfaces with warm water and carpet cleaning shampoo, allowing it to penetrate the fibres so that it loosens ingrained dirt. A powerful vacuum pulls the solution from the carpet, drawing out the grime at the same time. Dirty water is deposited into a wastewater tank, and you can pour it down a suitable drain or toilet.

How can dirty carpets affect your health?

The carpets in homes, shops, hotels, pubs, offices, and more, experience heavy use. Dirt can transfer to a carpet from footwear, equipment, pets, spilt liquids and foods, smoking, and more. This dirt can accumulate, leaving carpets dirty, worn, smelly, and a threat to your health. Carpets can contain a lot of dead skin, hair, pet dander, pollen, and other pollutants. They can also harbour fungi, chemicals, bacteria, germs, dust mites, bedbugs, and more. Regular vacuum cleaning can pick up some of the dirt and irritants, but a deep clean with warm water and cleaning solutions are the only way to remove them thoroughly and ensure the carpet is healthy.

Here are some issues carpets can experience, and how they can affect the carpet or your health -

  • Oily Residue. Oil and grease can dry into the carpet, trapping some dirt and attracting more. Oily residue is difficult to remove, leaves carpets looking unclean, and contributes to odours.
  • Sandy Soil. Small drains of this soil can engrain itself into the pile, and it slowly wears away the fibres, making it look worn and reducing its lifecycle.
  • Irritants. Carpets containing dust, dead skin cells, hair, pet dander, pollen, dust mites, and more, will aggravate allergies and cause irritations. An unclean carpet can make the environment uncomfortable for anyone who suffers from conditions, such as asthma, allergies, eczema, and allergic rhinitis (hay fever).
  • Germs & Viruses. Uncleaned carpets can harbour many bacteria, germs, and viruses. A carpet can be a hotspot, 4,000 times dirtier than a toilet seat. Some agents can survive in carpets for up to 6 weeks, and if they are disturbed and become airborne, they can make you sick.
  • Added Weight. Carpets can potentially hold more than 4 times their weight in dirt. This is not just a nasty image; it can also lead to further issues if you ever replace the carpet.

How long does a washed carpet take to dry?

A washed carpet can feel dry to the touch after 5 hours, but it is recommended to allow up to 24 hours for the whole carpet to try thoroughly before use.

We supply carpet dryers and dehumidifiers as part of our carpet cleaning range, allowing you to dry surfaces quickly and efficiently after you have used a carpet cleaning machine.

How often should you clean your carpet?

To maintain a great looking carpet and a healthy environment, you should vacuum clean twice a week and deep clean with a carpet cleaning machine every 12 to 18 months. You should clean busy households and commercial areas more regularly.

How much does it cost to hire a carpet washer?

Hiring equipment for DIY can be much cheaper than booking a professional, and you can achieve the same high-level results. The National Tool Hire Shops rates are extremely competitive, and we offer great value delivery nationwide.

From 1st April 2022, our suppliers will only fuel machines with white diesel. This is due to new government guidelines.

If you, as the hirer, refuel any equipment while it is in your possession, it must be with WHITE DIESEL.


If you return a machine refuelled with rebated diesel, suppliers will have to remove and dispose of the fuel. They must also flush the tank and supply lines before they can refuel them. The process is chargeable, with no exceptions.
