Though commonly called “steam cleaning”, no actual steam is involved in the hot water extraction cleaning process apart from steam that may escape incidentally from hot water. Hot water extraction begins with preconditioning using a pre-spray cleaner that lifts and breaks up the soil in the carpet making it easier to extract. Next, the surface is passed over several times with a cleaning wand or rotary extractor to thoroughly rinse out the preconditioner, much like rinsing shampoo from your hair.
How We Clean Carpet
The extraction uses 200+ degree water and very high pressure to really get down deep to the bottom of the carpet. That water is then sucked up taking all the dirt and debris with it. There are quite a few reasons why hot water extraction is one of the top cleaning methods. The cleaning is not only effective but also pretty quick. The stain removal is speedy. 99% of the time, all kinds of stains are removed. Hot water extraction is also eco-friendly, and the wastewater is biodegradable! We also have low odor solutions for people sensitive to smell. The equipment used is top-notch and hence, very powerful. After effectively cleaning the area, the machine will extract maximum moisture. So, your carpets will be fully dry in 2 to 4 hours.
Professional Deep Cleaning
To keep your carpet looking and performing at its best, The Carpet and Rug Institute recommends having your carpet professionally deep-cleaned every 12 to 18 months. Bear in mind that this recommended frequency is a general guideline only and can vary based on your particular circumstances. For example, dogs, cats, or other household pets, kids, and several people in the household. For example, some homes may need a professional carpet cleaning every 6 to 12 months. It really depends on your lifestyle and your personal preferences.
Vacuuming at least once a week will help your carpet last longer. This is because vacuuming removes the loose particles on the surface of the carpet before they settle deeper and start abrading the fibers. In many cases, regular vacuuming allows you to go longer between professional deep cleanings. But no matter how often you vacuum, you will eventually need to call a professional carpet cleaner to extract the deep dust and dirt from your carpet. And if you rarely vacuum, now is probably the time to schedule a professional cleaning to preserve the quality of your carpet. Carpet fibers act as a filter, eventually collecting much of the dust and allergens that float around in the air.
Help Relieve Allergies
As the month’s pass, these allergy-inducing particles can build up in the carpet fibers. If allowed to accumulate, these particles will become airborne again whenever someone walks across the carpet. Only a thorough cleaning can remove these allergens to restore a healthy living environment. Plus, if allergies are chronic, frequent cleanings are often necessary to help alleviate recurring symptoms. Many carpet manufacturers require you to follow a certain cleaning regimen to keep your warranty in full effect. It is not uncommon to have the warranty state you must have your carpet professionally cleaned at least once, or maybe twice, each year. Also, you may be required to save your receipts for the cleanings in case a warranty issue should arise. This will allow you to document that you followed the manufacturer’s instructions for proper care and cleaning frequency.
