Give Shorty a call now on 0409 774 253

for more information on how we can help you.

We also offer a spot and stain removal service for those unfortunate accidents, be it from a new puppy in the home, a glass (or bottle), of your favourite wine that has been spilled, or maybe you have a kiddie that is a budding artist.

These are all problems that can be beyond the expertise of many carpet cleaners that have never undertaken specialised training in these areas.

Spot and stain removal in many cases, is also NOT included in the price of “carpet cleaning”, always check first.

Here’s an example of a major problem that many refused to attempt.

Before treatment

Here’s a testimonial from the happy owners:

Hi Shorty, I have attached the before & after pictures, hopefully you can use these on your website.

Our new wool carpet was left with a large orange stain from a rug that had been left down for just a few months.

We contacted several local carpet cleaners and they either came over to assess the carpet or looked at photos I sent them, every one of them told us the staining had been caused by a dye transfer from rug to carpet due to the rug  or carpet becoming wet, I indicated that neither had ever been wet, they all insisted it had been wet or moist due to our tropical climate and said there was nothing that could be done.

We were recommended to contact Shorty.  He came out, had a very good look at both rug & carpet and told us it was due to ‘off gassing’ from the latex rubber used on the backing of the rug and agreed & accepted that the rug or carpet had never been wet, he treated the rug and made several return visits to re-treat and ensure the carpet looked as good as new - which it now does !

Thanks Shorty, you have saved us thousands on a new carpet and when everyone else said it couldnt be done you proved them all wrong !! Well done & thank you !

Thanks again !

Martin & Alison.

After treatment

Please, if you have any stain problems, DON’T try products from the supermarket, nor advice from well known t.v. or radio personalities. Many stains have been permanently set because of improper advice or inferior products which have caused hundreds/thousands of dollars damage.


Sad as it may seem, accidents do happen, especially when children and/or pets are in the home.

Suddenly those mysterious stains appear, or there may be an odour that wasn’t there before.

Shorty  has been trained and certified by Wools of New Zealand and Woolsafe Australia, as well as many other organisations to care for your fine furnishings.


Multi-storey or high rise apartments may require different equipment for a thorough, quality clean.

We have invested in that equipment to give Cairns residents the healthy clean that they rightly deserve.


Apart from great heights, we service all suburbs from Edmonton through to Smithfield, including the Cairns CBD.

This takes in all suburbs from Edmonton, Bentley Park, Mount Sheridan, Forest Gardens, Bayview and Mooroobool, up through the Cairns CBD and Cairns North, Whitfield, Edge Hill, Kanimbla, Brinsmead, Redlynch and north to Smithfield.
