Benefits of Steam Cleaning Your Carpet

Hot Water Extraction, most commonly referred to as steam cleaning, consists of a pre-treatment to loosen the contaminants in the carpet fibers. Then, hot water is sprayed deep into the carpet fibers to dislodge anything there, and then at the same time a high-powered vacuum is removing the hot water and all that comes with it. So why is this one of the most recommended ways to clean carpets?

1. Clear Out Allergens

Allergens such as dust, pollen and pet dander can get lodged in your carpet fibers after being blown in through windows and doors, or being tracked in on the feet of people or pets. Hot water extraction is effective at dislodging and extracting those allergens that can be trapped deep in your carpet fibers where vacuums cannot reach. The heat from steam is also effective in killing most germs, viruses, and mold spores, promoting an overall healthier living environment.

2. Eliminate Dust Mites

The temperature used to clean the carpets with hot water extraction is high enough to kill dust mites living in the carpet. The extraction method also removes the dead dust mites along with their feces and dander, their favorite food source. 

3. Extends Carpet Life

Regular steam extraction can help extend the life of your carpet. It does this by extracting dirt and other abrasives deep in the carpet that can cause wear on the carpet fibers, causing them to look older and worn. Check your carpet’s warranty to see if regular steam cleaning is required as regular maintenance. 

4. Extra Deep Cleaning

The professionals will have the right equipment to clean and extract from deep in the carpet fibers. DIY rental units just don’t have the power of professional steam extraction. Hot water extraction has the power to get down into the base layer of the carpet fiber and extract what is in your carpet. 

5. Chemical-Free Cleaning 

Steam cleaning only uses water, making it an eco-friendly option that avoids the use of harsh chemicals. Unlike harsh chemical cleaners, steam is gentle on all surfaces, reducing the risk of damage. With no chemicals and less water usage compared to traditional mopping, it’s better for the environment. And since steam cleaners only use water, you save money on cleaning products. Also, their efficiency can reduce the time you spend cleaning.

6. Removes Tough Stains, Grime, and Odors

The steam effectively loosens and removes tough stains and grime that traditional cleaning methods may struggle with. The high-temperature effectively neutralizes odors, including those from pets, cooking, and smoke. Steam penetrates deep into fabrics and porous surfaces, providing a more thorough clean than traditional methods.

7. Expert Advice

Professional carpet cleaners will have the knowledge to get rid of any stains, odors, or other concerns without damaging your carpet. They will also have the knowledge and equipment to not leave too much moisture in the carpet fibers, leading to faster dry times.

Overall, steam cleaning is a powerful and efficient cleaning method that offers both environmental and health benefits, making it a popular choice for many households and businesses.
