    Ive been asked to do carpet cleaning for an estate agent and has told me there would be a lot of work passed my way. But is it as simple as just going to get a machine and stain remover and thats it? Surely you must have to do a course on it, but it might be worth my while as I'm doing cleaning for them anyway and they need a carpet cleaner too

    Have you cleaned carpets before? I know some people just pop to morrisons and rent a machine! Probably not what everyone does though

    Not all stains will come out. Simples...

    Would sugest you sub one or two jobs out to someone who knows what they are doing frist and go along with them so you can see what's involved. That way you can see if you want to get involved in that kind off work before spending out a few grand for a decent pro setup. ;)

    I use a steam cleaner and vanish for really bad bits.... Trust me my 20 month old destroys my purple carpet (bloody women wanting certain colours) .... I clean my fairly often and never have an issue, even with squished in fruit and drinks lol
