Thanks, I've looked online and there's a big variety of companies and techniques ("dry" versions, protective coatings etc). I'd be interested to hear from anyone who was or wasn't happy, and what method was used.

I do ours regularly (they are cream) and I find hiring a rug doctor is just as good and cheaper. I find varying standards with carpet companies depending on the person who is doing the job and how much effort they put in with stains. The machine they use is identical to rug doctors as far as I know. I pay about £25 to hire it and I always seem to have plenty of the cleaning fluid stored up from previous goes. The cleaning stuff is the pricey bit, but even getting 1 room only was £70 with the pros so still saved a lot.

I've tried stain protector - no difference.

Dry just means less wet. It's best to get it on a day when it's dry warm and sunny as it will dry quicker. You need to keep windows open and doors if poss.

I have my carpets cleaned once a year and it's sooooo worth it. I use an Eco cleaning company.
