Why Steam Carpet Cleaning Works

From pet stains to daily traffic, the carpet in your home goes through a lot. It’s actually kind of surprising that carpet lasts as long as it does when you really think about it. Nevertheless, there will inevitably come a time that you just can’t clean your carpet well enough on your own with the materials that you have at home. What’s a person to do? For many, the answer is to find a professional carpet cleaning company that utilizes steam during the cleaning process.

What is it that makes steam effective? To put it simply, the steam from the equipment that we utilize penetrates into the fibers of your carpet, loosening up anything that might be holding on a little too tightly for a standard vacuum cleaner to get on its own. In fact, numerous studies have shown that over 95% of dirt, debris, and bacteria can be removed from your carpet thanks to steam. This works because the heat and moisture combine to loosen dirt’s hold on your carpet. The steam, in conjunction with some soap, leaves your carpet looking fresh and new.

“But Can’t You Rent a Carpet Cleaner?”

We know that some of you may be wondering why you shouldn’t just rent a carpet cleaning machine. While this does work in some instances, it can also cause even bigger problems. If you’re not trained to use the machine, the three-step instructions may prove to be ineffective. At the end of the day, our opinion is that you’re always better off paying slightly more and having it done by a trained professional.
