Quite often, dusty, mouldy, and/or soiled areas of homes and businesses are evident. You see a stain on the kitchen countertop, you clean it up. A lot of what we don’t see still can have undesirable effects on our living and working spaces, however. Carpets are a hotspot for all sorts of icky stuff you’d probably rather not think about too much, but that doesn’t change the fact that it’s there and it needs to be cleaned up.
The often dense piling of carpets attracts all manner of dust, mould, bacteria, crumbs, spills, and so on. Regular vacuum cleaning is always necessary to remove the topical layers of this stuff, but it doesn’t really do anything for all of the icky stuff the builds up at the roots of the piling, where foul odours and mould can fester and grow.
That’s why steam cleaning is needed, and we’ve assembled five key reasons explaining why in further detail:
Fully Deep Clean and Neutralisation of Bacteria
Pet urine, a drop of red wine, or whatever else is lurking deep in that carpet of yours will surely leave behind a nasty smell that you probably want gone. Steam cleaning is able to achieve this without the need for expensive and potentially toxic chemicals sprinkled atop your carpet and scrubbed down into the roots.
Our pre-spray odour neutralisation services loosens contaminants, eliminates foul odours, and prepares the carpet for a full hot water extraction afterwards.
Removal of Tough Stains
Bubble gum, coffee grounds, and other tough stains from grease and oil can leave behind a wrecked carpet with seemingly no good solution in sight. Well, hot water extraction can effectively remove the source of these problems and in many cases restore the vibrancy and fluffiness of your carpet simply due to the technology used.
Hot steam has the potential to break down these tough stains and dissolve them, thus removing the stain visibly as well as sucking up any of the contaminants left behind.
That’s right, steam cleaning is about as environmentally-friendly as it gets for professional carpet care. Another commonly-used term for ‘steam cleaning’ is hot water extraction, but it just doesn’t roll off the tongue like steam cleaning does, perhaps.
The machine injects steam deep into the roots of the carpet, which frees up any loose debris for extraction whilst also providing the heat necessary to neutralise bacteria and mould whilst leaving behind a fresh scent.
It’s a lot better than over-the-counter carpet cleaning chemicals which can be harsh and dangerous if inhaled, so choose steam cleaning for superior results.
For Your Health
Mould and fungal growth deep in the carpet might be out of sight, but it isn’t out of mind. Those suffering from allergies, asthma, or other respiratory illnesses can have symptoms triggered by the presence of mould. Prolonged exposure can exacerbate these illnesses and cause discomfort or other, more serious health problems. Steam cleaning mitigates the development of mould in your carpets.
Keep Your Carpet Healthy for Years to Come
Routine steam cleaning will keep your carpet looking great and pristine for years to come. Homeowners should have their carpets steam cleaned at least twice per year whilst commercial carpets should be cleaned much more regularly.
