Did you know over time mopping can dull your tiles? Our Brisbane tile cleaning services can help!

Depending on the type of mop and products you use when mopping your tiles, you could actually be making them dirtier, rather than giving them a clean. Some store-bought floor cleaning products leave behind films, rather than getting rid of dirt and grime, which means over time your tiles end up looking dull and dirty, especially your grout! Have you noticed your tiles and grout looking dull and grey? Our Brisbane tile cleaning services will have your tiles looking like new!

See our amazing tile cleaning results below!

The tiles in the picture above are from a Brisbane home we recently worked in. You can see that the tiles on the right, have a dull and dirty appearance, where the tiles on the left look bright and clean.

DIY Carpet Cleaning Machines Vs South QLD Restoration Carpet Cleaning Machines

Cleaning your carpets has many benefits. Not only do your carpets look, smell and feel better after they’ve been cleaned, they are also safer for your family and pets because cleaning your carpet will also remove any bacteria or allergens.  The other main benefit to cleaning your carpets regularly (roughly once a year) is you’re also ensuring the longevity of your carpet, which can save you thousands in the long run. The big question is though, do you clean it yourself or do you hire someone to do it?

DIY Machines

For the DIY enthusiast cleaning your carpets with a DIY carpet cleaning machine may seem like the best way forward, but the advertising surrounding DIY machines are aimed at you, to make you think you can achieve the same results you can with a professional commercial grade carpet cleaner. Your carpets will definitely be cleaner, but a DIY clean will never be as thorough as a professional carpet clean.

Our carpet cleaning machines

The carpet cleaning machines we use for our Brisbane carpet cleaning services are commercial grade. This means they have been designed specifically for commercial use, so they are more reliable and more technologically advanced. When you couple our commercial grade carpet cleaning machines with our commercial grade carpet cleaning products, expertise and experience you simply get a job well done, every time. Unlike DIY carpet cleaning machines, there will be no bacteria, dirt or allergens left behind.

South QLD Restoration provide Brisbane carpet cleaning services to both commercial and residential properties. When you see the difference our commercial grade carpet cleaning machines can make to your carpets, you’ll be glad you went with us, rather than deciding to clean your carpets yourself!

Our tips for keeping a home full of pets clean and tidy

When you have pets in your home, it can make it harder to maintain clean and tidy spaces, free from pet urine stains and pet hair. Our professional Brisbane carpet cleaning and upholstery cleaning services have taught us a thing or two about cleaning pet urine stains and pet hair removal! We want to share our tips with you on how to keep your home clean and tidy, even though it may be filled with pets!

Keep your pets well groomed

Ensure you are giving your pets regular baths, particularly for dogs. Depending on the breed of your cat or dog, you may be able to reduce the amount of pet hair they shed by giving them regular haircuts.

Start the toilet training as soon as possible

Whether this means training them to only go to the bathroom outside, or if it means getting them to use a kitty litter or a fake patch of grass. Pet urine stains are hard to get rid of, and the smell can hang around even after you’ve done your best to clean it. The sooner you can ensure your pets won’t be using your carpet as a toilet, the better.

Keep the feeding area to one designated spot in the house

Whether you have a couple of dogs, cats or both, one of the best ways to help keep your home tidy is to keep your pets feeding area contained to one spot. Pick a spot that has an easy to clean floor, like a tiled kitchen or laundry floor. This will stop pet food getting all over your house, and it will also be easier to tidy up any spills.

Enlist some help from the professionals at South QLD Restoration in Brisbane

When it comes to cleaning up after pets, sometimes all you can do is bring in the experts. Especially when it comes to nasty pet urine stains or pet hair removal. Our carpet cleaning, upholstery cleaning and special cleaning services will have your home and furniture both looking and smelling clean! Contact us today to see what we can do for you!

Pressure cleaning – It’s not as dangerous or damaging as the name suggests!

When you put the words pressure and cleaning together, it sounds like an invasive and damaging cleaning technique. This is, however, certainly not the case! Pressure cleaning is a great way to remove stubborn grime, dirt, oil, debris and more from a number of different surfaces. From your wooden deck, to your garage floor or your paved driveway, you’ll be amazed at the way pressure cleaning can make these surfaces look brand new!

How does pressure cleaning work?

One of the main reasons why pressure cleaning is so safe, is that it doesn’t use chemicals. Pressure cleaning simply entails water being projected from a nozzle at high speed. This concentrated pressure from the water is what makes it so easy to lift away oil, grime and debris from surfaces. Whilst the pressure is more intense than the average garden hose, it is still a safe amount of pressure that won’t create cracks, dints or other damage to the surface you’re working on.

Domestic Pressure Cleaners Vs Commercial Pressure cleaners

There are lots of pressure cleaners on the market aimed specifically at home owners for domestic use. Whilst these types of pressure cleaners can be great for smaller jobs like cleaning a car, our commercial pressure cleaners are designed to tackle larger scale jobs and tougher grime and stains. If you’re struggling with your own pressure cleaner at home, give us a call! You’ll be blown away by the difference a commercial pressure cleaner can make!

Contact South QLD Restoration for all your Brisbane pressure cleaning needs!

Whether you need to clean up the exterior of your commercial building, your preparing your home for sale and it needs a once over, or your new project is transforming your deck back to its former glory, contact South QLD Restoration! Our Brisbane pressure cleaning services are second to none!

Your antique furniture could be worth more than you realise! Breathe new life into it with our upholstery cleaning services

Whether it’s a piece of furniture you bought second hand, or an antique couch that has been passed down through the family for generations, you could be sitting on a goldmine, not just a couch! Your antique furniture may look a little dirty, and it may be stained here or there but with our amazing upholstery cleaning services, we can bring those much-loved pieces back to life! So, stop wondering if you should just turf your antique furniture, and contact South QLD Restoration to see what they can do for you!

We don’t have a one upholstery-cleaning-method suits all approach

We understand that different types of materials, and the age of the piece of furniture will make a big difference to how we should clean a piece of antique furniture. Therefore, before we get to work, we take the time to assess the material type and the type of stain before we choose which upholstery cleaning product to use.

Our cleaning products are safe for your antique furniture, family and pets

Owning antique furniture ourselves, we appreciate not only the monetary value, but the sentimental value you may hold for your antique furniture. This is why we only use the best commercial grade upholstery cleaning products available, to ensure that we can safely clean away any grime or stains.

Do you have a mould problem in your Brisbane home? We help you spot the signs.

Mould is a type of fungus, so it can start as a small contained issue but can then spread quickly, and before you know it, you’ve gone from having mould in your shower, to having mould throughout your bathroom! Mould can sneak up on you, so we share our tips on spotting mould before it takes over your home!

What does mould look like?


Mould usually appears as black spots. It can sometimes look like dust and dirt but the easiest way to tell the difference, is mould won’t simply wipe away.

Where is mould commonly found?

Mould is commonly found in areas of your home that are often subject to damp conditions like your bathroom, laundry, or places that don’t have ventilation or access to natural light, like your walk-in-wardrobe. Mould can start out in hard to notice places, like under your shampoo bottle or behind your washing machine. If you notice mould you should treat it straight away and do your best to determine the cause so you can prevent the mould from reappearing. For example: With mould growing under shampoo bottles, it’s a good idea to put your toiletries in shower racks, rather than leaving them on the floor to sit in any left-over water from your shower.

Mould on a larger scale

When it comes to mould on a larger scale, simple house hold products won’t cut it. That’s where our mould removal services come in. The mould in the picture above is caused by water damage, and while it looks irreversible our many years of providing mould removal services have given us the knowhow on how to remove mould from your walls and carpet safely and efficiently.

Call South QLD Restoration and book our Brisbane mould removal services today!

If you have mould in your home or office, you should deal with it straight away, so it doesn’t spread further or start to affect your health! No matter how big or small your mould problem is, our experienced mould removal specialists can help! Call now!

Before you replace your carpet, consider carpet repair or our Brisbane carpet cleaning services!

Do you have a cigarette burn in your carpet? Do you have a thread loose in your carpet? Does your carpet have a mark that just won’t come out? It seems silly to replace an entire room of carpet for a tiny patch of damage, but it may feel like your only option! At South QLD Restoration, we can provide you with more options than replacing your carpet, by helping you repair it with our Brisbane carpet repair services or our Brisbane carpet cleaning services!

How our Brisbane carpet repair services work

First, we come to your home or office and take a look at the mark or stain. From there we will determine whether our carpet cleaning services will remove the stain. We have years of experience and our commercial grade carpet cleaning products are second to none, so there aren’t many stains our carpet cleaning services can’t handle.

If there is actual damage to the carpet like a burn or tare rather than a stain or mark, we will assess the best way to repair the carpet. If the carpet is still available through a carpet supplier, we can order the carpet in. If the carpet is no longer available, this usually entails taking carpet from somewhere like a wardrobe or underneath a built-in cupboard where if the carpet is removed, it won’t be noticeable. We then carefully cut out the damaged carpet and replace it, and secure it in a way that you can’t see the outline of the repaired spot. We call this our invisible mending technique!

Contact the Brisbane carpet cleaning and carpet repair experts today and save yourself thousands!

If you’ve been staring at a mark on your carpet for years, call South QLD Restoration now! We’ll help you make your carpet look brand new again!

Household Pests – We share our DIY pest control tips on keeping them at bay

There’s nothing worse than finding household pests in your home! From cockroaches and rats to huntsmans and ants, we share our tips on keeping pests at bay with our DIY pest control tips!

DIY pest control tip number one

Firstly, keeping your home tidy is one of the best ways to ensure you’re not creating an open invitation for guests to come into your home.

  • Things like dirty plates can attract pests who are in search of food, make sure you are rinsing any dirty plates so there are no crumbs left behind.
  • Piles of laundry provide pests with a place to hide. Try putting all your dirty laundry inside a laundry basket that has a lid.
  • Wiping down benches after food preparation to ensure all crumbs and food are removed.

DIY pest control tip number two

Make sure you’re disposing of your rubbish properly. When you recycle, make sure you rinse any bottles, especially soft drink as ants are attracted to sugar and it can lure them inside your home. It’s also a good idea to use a bin with a lid to stop any pests getting into your rubbish. If you have recently disposed of food waste, perhaps after preparing a meal or cleaning out your fridge, take your rubbish out to your wheelie bin as soon as possible so the food waste isn’t deteriorating inside your home.

DIY pest control tip number three

Keep your floors clean. This can mean vacuuming and sweeping to make sure there are no crumbs left on the floor and it can also mean enlisting a professional Brisbane carpet cleaning service so that your carpet is free from food and bacteria that attract pests.
