All About Steam Carpet Cleaning
Steam cleaning removes dust mites and deep-seated mould that a vacuum just can't reach and in the process extends the life of your carpet by removing abrasive grit that degrades carpet fibres.
The process commonly known as steam cleaning doesn't involve steam at all, unless you count the small amount that rises from the top of the water in the tank. "Steam" cleaners shoot a jet of hot water and carpet shampoo onto your rug and then vacuum it back up.
Steam is a naturally powerful cleaning force that leaves no toxic residue on surfaces, and does not discolour clothing. Even emitted at a low pressure, the heat of steam alone is able to rid your home of unseen allergens and bacteria as well as visible dirt and grease. Steam cleaners can be used virtually anywhere in your home or workplace, garden, car or caravan for a wide variety of tasks. Our operatives use steam cleaning mainly when carrying out end of tenancy cleaning services. Steam cleaning is suitable for all types of carpet, including Woven, Needlefelt, Knotted, Tufted, flatweave carpets.
HOW TO DO ITPreparing the Room
To get the most out of your steam cleaner you need to prepare the room beforehand.
If you have stained patches on your carpet treat them before steam cleaning with spot carpet cleaner.
In high traffic areas your carpet may be more heavily soiled. To treat these areas make a second pass over the carpet with your steam cleaning machine perpendicular to the direction of your first pass. This time, however, do not activate the soap/water solution as you don't want to get your carpet over-wet. Just allow the machine's brushes to do the work.
