About KC Carpet Cleaning
K C Carpet cleaning is an independently owned and operated family run business based in Torquay. We cover both domestic and commercial properties, are fully insured and provide a reliable, friendly and affordable service.
We use top of the range portable hot water extraction machines with the most powerful available twin vacs significantly reducing drying times. This provides more flexibility than a truck mount machine while still offering an effective and thorough deep clean of the carpets. The twin vacs are very good at eradicating the water leaving the carpet just damp to the touch. All equipment and chemicals, where possible, are purchased locally. We believe in supporting the local business community and doing our bit to support the local economy.
Our technicians have attended the Prochem National Training Academy for the cleaning industry in Chessington, receiving hands on training and certification in the cleaning and maintenance of woven & tufted carpets, rugs & soft floor coverings and upholstery & fabric finishes.
K C Carpet Cleaning is fully insured and can cover both domestic and commercial cleaning in the following areas: -
- Newton Abbott
- Bovey Tracey
Our carpet and upholstery cleaning services:
Carpet Cleaning in the Home
Commercial Carpet Cleaning
This involves vacuuming the carpet as necessary, followed by a pre-spray and use of a carpet brush to agitate the pre-spray into the carpet to loosen the dirt. We then use a hot water extraction unit to absorb the dirt. Our machines use twin vac motors which absorb most of the water leaving the carpet only damp to touch thus ensuring carpets are as quick drying as possible.
This is our most frequently provided service, popular in the home/domestic situation and with offices, hotels and guest houses, restaurants, landlords/letting agents - as an end of tenancy service and retirement homes.
Upholstery can require a number of different chemicals depending on the material, colour and staining of the fabric. We always assess the material before cleaning in order to select and utilise the most appropriate chemicals. A pre-spray is applied and agitated deep into the fabric using an upholstery brush before again using the hot water extraction machine to clean the upholstery.
This service is popular in the home, for vehicle upholstery, in public seating areas of hotels and restaurants and hotel bedrooms.
It is important that rugs are cleaned by a professional carpet cleaner as they have a tendency to shrink or lose colour if not treated in the correct manner. KC Carpet Cleaning are trained and equipped to provide this specialist service.
Our usual cleaning practices are highly effective in the control of dust mites and other allergens, however other pests can be harder to remove.
In order to de-flea a carpet, rug or upholstery first we give them a thorough cleaning using the hot water extraction machine. We then apply a flea spray whilst still damp to the touch. Experience has demonstrated that this is the best and most effective way of eradicating any flea infestation that might be present.
Many customers have contacted K C Carpet Cleaning to ask about protecting their carpets and upholstery from spillages. We are pleased to say that protection of your carpets and upholstery is something that we can also offer to you.
Scotch-guard treatment is a product that is sprayed on to the particular area that you wish to have protected after the cleaning has taken place. This prevents spillages of drinks or liquids from being absorbed by you carpet or upholstery, therefore preventing further damage to you furnishings.

Although most of our domestic clients are based in and around Torbay and South Devon we do travel further for commercial clients. We are more than happy to take on businesses throughout Devon and Cornwall. This can be offices, pubs, clubs, restaurants, schools, colleges, leisure centres, churches, hotels, B&Bs.
Specialist Cleaning Equipment
We have recently invested in a rotary machine mainly for commercial cleaning work. This helps to offer a more diverse cleaning service especially in offices.
We can offer a low moisture clean which is ideal for high traffic areas and common areas such as receptions where there is a constant footfall so the appearance needs to be kept up but with minimal disruption from the cleaning process.
These areas benefit massively from a maintenance clean, often once a month, to keep the areas in question looking their best. The low moisture clean has the carpets dry extremely quickly so they can be in use almost straight after cleaning.
We also offer bonnet cleaning. This is ideal for large office spaces particularly for carpet tiles. Often office carpets can get dirty very quickly mainly from spills from hot drinks such as tea and coffee.
These will often go unnoticed until it’s too late. Bonnet cleaning is very good at removing these types of stains. Bonnet cleaning in offices is often very beneficial as it can handle larger areas much more quickly than regular hot water extraction methods, but will still provide a thorough deep down clean.
This also helps to speed up drying times thus resulting in the office being able to return to normal a lot quicker. Our hot water extraction system still has a vital role to play in a commercial setting especially on more awkward areas such as communal stair cases and smaller office areas.
Example Commercial Jobs
One of our first jobs using the new rotary machine was at a church in Paignton in July 2020. We were asked to clean all the chairs in the church and all the carpets ready for them to re-open after lockdown. We started with the chairs as there were just under 300 of them.
We used our hot water extraction machine to do a deep clean and sanitised all of the chairs which took about 2 days. We then used our rotary machine with bonnet system to clean all the carpets in the church. There were a lot of food and drink stains as you would expect in a frequently used church, but these all cleaned up great leaving the customers really pleased with the work we had done.
One of our more recent commercial clients was for the NHS, where we used the bonnet cleaning system. We were asked by the NHS if we could provide a quick but thorough carpet clean at a disused office in Newton Abbot ready for them to set up to use for the COVID 19 vaccination’s.
The office was formerly used by the job centre so being that it was based on the ground floor its carpets had become fairly dirty from quite a high footfall.
After an inspection and then a thorough vac of the carpets we used our rotary machine with bonnet pads to do a deep clean of the carpets. The whole job was completed within 7 hours ready for them to start setting up their equipment for the next day.
