Hello, my name is Gary Humphreys and along with my wife Gaynor, we own and operate a truly professional, Checkatrade and Trading Standards approved carpet and upholstery cleaning service, Derwent Cleaning Services.


We have been cleaning the carpets and upholstery of our Carlton and Bakersfield customers for over a decade.


We were first approved by Trading Standards in Nottingham over 7 years ago.


The vetting procedure is a very strict one and as hard as it was to become a trusted trader with Trading Standards, if you don't maintain the same high standards you'll lose the accreditation.

We operate an industrial van based carpet cleaning system which has a great many benefits for our carpet cleaning customers.

1) All the unwanted noise and disturbance is kept outside

2) The excess moisture that carpet and upholstery cleaning machines create is kept away from the home. Nobody wants misted up windows or carpets that take an age to dry.

3) A superior clean and more thorough clean.

We know it's not easy choosing a carpet cleaner from the Internet. 


This is why we would urge you to read our Checkatrade reviews. These reviews are all checked and vetted by Checkatrade and they will not publish them until they are satisfied that they are genuine. Anyone can write themselves a great review and you'd be right to be sceptical of a lot of them. Our reviews are guaranteed to be from customers who have used our service, giving their genuine feedback about us.

Our reviews are available to view on the Checkatrade website and the link is below, click on it. and have a read.

Our quotations for carpet and upholstery cleaning are completely free of charge subject to a survey of the items to be cleaned. A survey is important as it's vital to know which method of cleaning is the most suitable for your carpets or upholstery. It also gives us the chance to discuss with you the possible outcome of any cleaning we undertake for you.


Not all carpets or fabrics can be wet cleaned and a survey is the correct way to avoid disasters. We get calls all the time to rectify failures from company's who didn't carry out a survey to check suitability prior to cleaning and things went badly wrong. We offer a truly professional service and take every step to ensure a safe and effective carpet and upholstery cleaning service.
