Worried about getting your bond back ??

Shorty has been cleaning OWNER OCCUPIED APARTMENTS including rental properties and ensuring bonds have been returned to the tenants since 1971

In that time, we have never had one bond refused due to our services.

Since 1983 in Cairns, we have specialized in carpet & upholstery cleaning, plus mattress sanitizing, ensuring that all that use our services retain their bond.

For apartments that are fully furnished, we can offer a “package clean”, this is where we may clean carpets, upholstery and mattresses in the one unit, at the one time.

Generally, there may be a 10-15% saving with the “package clean”  instead of getting these items cleaned separately.


Below are some views from some of the apartments we service regularly on the Cairns Esplanade, Abbott & Lake Sts, including a home high up in the hills overlooking Cairns.

We go to great heights to ensure that your furnishings and carpets are not only clean, but healthy clean.

Unfortunately, we now only accept work in high rise apartments that have an elevator.




Many of Cairns’ carpet cleaners have a problem getting their equipment safely to these units, especially those that may be fully air conditioned and sealed.

Get Shorty has invested in quality equipment, purpose built for these buildings and regularly clean carpets, upholstery, mats and mattresses with no problems.

We use a system that is extremely fast drying compared to conventional methods, and gives as good, if not better result, than conventional systems.

This is vitally important, especially with the high humidity in Cairns.
