Carpet steam cleaning is the process of using hot water and specially formulated detergents to dislodge and dissolve soil from carpets. Machines used in steam cleaning simultaneously deposit a mix of water and detergent into the carpet and then extract the filth out of the carpet.
Compared to other carpet cleaning processes, steam cleaning is a better method. Vacuuming, while essential to regular carpet maintenance, is only effective in removing loose debris. And older methods of deep cleaning, like shampooing, leave residue on the carpet.
The steam cleaning process begins with moving furniture from the area, and a thorough vacuuming. A low chemical cleaning solution is then applied to the carpet. After the appropriate application time has elapsed, the solution is removed from the carpet along with any stains. Our method is eco-friendly and free from harmful chemicals. The drying time is also shorter than with other methods.
The benefits to carpet steam cleaning are many. Apart from helping maintain your carpet’s quality and longevity, it improves the appearance of carpet, revitalizing it so it looks like new again. Carpets are also magnets for pollutants we track into our homes. Steam cleaning eliminates pollutants like:
- Pet dander
- Dust mites
- Cockroach allergens
- Particle pollution
High humidity environments can also foster mold and mildew growth in carpets. Steam cleaning not only removes mold and mildew, but can help prevent future growth as well.
