Carpet Cleaning MARGATE

At A1 Carpet Cleaning we pride ourselves in making sure we leave your carpets clean, fresh and looking like new. There are a number of methods we can use to clean your carpets. The most popular is hot water extraction (often called steam cleaning). Hot water extraction is recognised as being the method that achieves the deepest clean.


Our Process

The process for getting your carpets cleaned begins with booking an appointment. Contact the A1 team for a quote, and we can arrange a convenient time to clean your carpets.

On the day of your appointment, you will be greeted by our friendly carpet cleaning professionals. No pre-clean preparation is necessary – all we ask is for pets and children to be kept clear of the area while we work. The A1 team are happy to help with moving small items of furniture that are manageable by one person. Generally we ask that any Nik Naks (Speakers, ornaments, coffee tables, rugs etc) are removed before we arrive.

Carpet cleaning starts with vacuuming. We use a professional grade vacuum which outperforms any domestic vacuum that you may use. As well as removing dust and grit, this vacuum also helps lift the pile with a brushing action.

The next stage is to apply a pre-spray. At A1, we use several different brands of pre spray as each carpet is different. Our cleaning solutions use natural molecular technology combined with advanced biotechnology techniques. Our products are non-toxic to humans and pets, fully biodegradable and derived from sustainable renewable resources.

The pre-spray is followed by ‘agitating’ the carpet – in other words, giving it a good scrub with a professional agitating machine. The machine removes impacted dry soil, lifts the carpet pile and also removes any hair not gathered up by the vacuum.

The carpet has now been prepared for the main cleaning process: hot water extraction. This process involves spraying a cleaning solution into the carpet under pressure. The solution will rinse the fibres free of the pre-spray, dissolved dirt, oils and loose debris.

Our process ends with us using a carpet rake to reset the pile upon request and helping to replace the furniture.

After Getting Your Carpet Cleaned

Your carpets can take up to several hours to dry. For the best results, we recommend that you avoid walking on the area cleaned where possible until the carpet has completely dried.

Carpet manufacturers recommend getting your carpets professionally cleaned at least once a year. We hope you’ll think of Acorn and contact us again when it is time for your annual clean!



We offer a quick-drying and environmentally-friendly upholstery cleaning service. This work is carried out by our carpet cleaning and upholstery technicians using industrial hot water extraction equipment along with commercial fabric cleaning products. In addition to restoring the appearance of fabric suites, we can also clean mattresses, headboards and curtains.

Our Process

The process for getting your upholstery cleaned begins with booking an appointment. Contact the A1 team for a quote, and we can arrange a convenient time to visit. On the day of your appointment, you will be greeted by our friendly technicians.

Before we can begin cleaning your upholstery, we must first identify the type of fabric and select the correct cleaning solution, paying particular attention to the PH value.

The actual cleaning process starts by thoroughly pre-vacuuming the fabric to remove any loose dirt or dust. A fine mist of a safe pre-spray is then applied and agitated (i.e. scrubbed) with a soft upholstery brush. This allows us to break down surface oils and soils while keeping the internal padding and fillings of your upholstery perfectly dry. We finish off by rinsing the solution out of the fabric using the Sapphire upholstery hand tool, which provides precision flow and vacuum control.

The benefits of a professional service

Some types of fabrics are more prone to dye bleeds, texture change, ring-marking, or shrinking than others. Water-sensitive fabrics, such as silk, cannot be wet-cleaned and instead must be cleaned by hand using a fine fabric solvent cleaning.



We also offer a thorough, cost-effective leather cleaning service for all types of leather suites and sofas, from pigmented leather to Nu-buck. Our technicians have had extensive training from LTT Leathercare, a recognised British leather care specialist.

Leather is a material which requires special skills and techniques to get it looking shiny and new again. At A1 Carpet Cleaning, our technicians can identify the leather finish of a suite when selecting the appropriate cleaning method. For example, most of the dirt on pigmented leather will sit on the surface, while Suede and Numbuck are very absorbent. We can then professionally clean your leather upholstery, using the best available products. To extend their life by finishing with a luxurious, nourishing protection cream to extend the life of your upholstery.
