About Elite Carpet Dry Cleaning:

Elite Carpet Dry Cleaning has been cleaning carpets for over 35 years which is why they are proud to say: With Pride – Australia Wide. They started in Brisbane in 1984 and have grown over the years to cover all of the Australian states as well as the ACT. This growth has not come by accident, Elite has always focussed on delivering great value to customers plus fantastic customer service. The old saying of “Look after your customer and they will reward you” is certainly true at Elite, they have customers that have used them for over 30 years. 

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.
