We use the most powerful and sophisticated Truck Mounted Cleaning Systems in the world, the mighty HydraMaster Titans 575 and 875 which develop up to twenty times more cleaning power than conventional carpet and upholstery cleaning machines. All that extra power translates to a deeper, long lasting clean, that is dry in hours not days.

When it comes to professionally cleaning the carpets and upholstery in your home,
we do not cut corners.

  • Upon arrival at your home our fully trained and uniformed technicians will survey the work and discuss in detail your requirements.
  • We move and replace most items of furniture (except heavy items like bookcases, display cabinets and televisions)
  • Where appropriate we place protective films under any items which may bleed dyes into the carpet.
  • We then choose the most effective cleaning agent and pre-spray it on the carpet.
  • We treat all stains and have a wide range of products to deal with most common stains although we do not guarantee complete removal of certain types of stains.
  • Our technicians will discuss this with you in advance.
  • The carpet is then thoroughly cleaned with our powerful Truck Mounted Carpet Cleaning System which flushes the dirt from deep down the carpet pile straight into a recovery tank in our van, leaving your carpet thoroughly clean and just damp to the touch.
  • The carpet is then brushed to reset the pile and all furniture is replaced.

We realise you may have been disappointed by previous cleaning service providers, or you may have heard about the bad experiences of others at the hands of under equipped, less experienced, unprofessional carpet cleaners; that is why we are dedicated to making sure your next carpet cleaning experience is one that puts a smile on your face. We have built our business on excellent customer service and delivering the very highest quality carpet cleaning services.
We have many thousands of satisfied customers in the domestic, commercial and marine sectors and have been contractors to P&O Cruises and Cunard line for over twenty years.

Many over-the-counter stain removers can set a stain making it much harder or even impossible to remove and sometimes can cause irreversible damage to the carpet fibres.
Which is why Gerrard’s give all our customers a complimentary bottle of our professional stain remover to keep your carpets and upholstery stain free between cleans.

Its our way of saying “THANK YOU!”




Gerrard’s hold the nationally recognised Contractors Health & Safety (CHAS) assessment scheme accreditation which provides our customers with the peace of mind that Gerrard’s Carpet & Upholstery Cleaners are committed to the very highest standards of Health & Safety compliance.

The father and daughter team of Simon and Kerry were both very professional and very friendly. I must admit I engaged Gerrard’s because they are a small family firm and came highly recommended by the Wigan Trusted Trader Scheme. Also when I initially rang and spoke to Sharon, (wife and mother) she gave me a lot of confidence in Gerrard’s. They use up to date equipment and have many years experience. I particularly liked the fact that the owner, Simon would be doing the work. I am absolutely delighted with the cleaning work carried out on my two 3 seater sofas and a chair. It was a pleasant surprise that they did the matching cushions as I had not expected them to be part of the job. I would DEFINITELY ask Gerrard’s to come to my home again and I would DEFINITELY recommend them to any one needing cleaning work carried out. I must admit that I am quite a “picky” person and like things to be right. I was impressed with the service given and the value for money. My suite looks brand new. THANK YOU TO ALL INVOLVED. Janet

Simon arrived at the agreed time (despite the weather). He was polite, professional and worked very hard when cleaning our leather sofas. He did a fantastic job and our white leather sofas now look like new. Gerrard’s were excellent from the initial booking of the appointment to Simon completing the cleaning. Thank you

Gerrards Logo (2) (2016_08_22 20_00_12 UTC)I had a prompt response upon my initial enquiry and everything else followed. The clean was of a very high standard and I was impressed with the cost. I would definitely recommend.
