Many homes and businesses are lined with carpets. Even with regular vacuuming, carpets can still hold on to a lot of dust, dirt, odors and many allergens. These particles can affect air quality. It’s also nearly impossible to get rid of a stain or set-in odors without nasty chemicals or bringing heavy equipment in to do so. Having carpets cleaned by professional carpet cleaners eliminates the need to rent heavy equipment or experiment with harsh chemicals on expensive carpeting. Professional carpet cleaning services will use a combination of steam cleaners and gentle detergents to keep your carpets and home or business fresh, healthy and clean.
Carpet Steam Cleaning
Using a vacuum on a carpet will eliminate the majority of the dust and dirt, but even the strongest vacuums will leave something behind. They don’t wash the carpets or reach the base where dirt and dust tend to accumulate, and they don’t get rid of odors. Steam cleaning machines use pressurized hot water to deeply penetrate all of the layers of the carpet, blasting out the particles that can’t be touched by merely vacuuming. Professional carpet cleaners use steam cleaning machines which work in conjunction with scrubbers and gentle detergents to thoroughly sanitize the different layers of carpet, leading to a truly deep clean.
Many people suffer from allergies, and fibers in carpets can trap a large number of allergens. Having carpets professionally cleaned in the home or business is imperative to protect those suffering from allergies. A vacuum can pick up some of these allergens, but smaller particles stay trapped in the fibers and layers of carpeting. Steam carpet cleaning can eliminate the majority of allergens trapped in carpets by spraying hot water into the fibers and then extracting the water and particles, ridding the carpet of a vast quantity of common allergens which makes it a healthier environment for all.
One of the downsides of carpets is that they can easily be stained. All it takes is a few drops of a drink, a bit of food sliding off a plate, or a muddy footprint to leave a mark that cannot be removed simply by scrubbing by hand. Stain removal can prove to be one of the most daunting tasks for carpet owners. Many people resort to using harsh chemicals which can permanently discolor or cause other damage to their carpets. Professional carpet cleaning services use powerful carpet steam cleaners which blast the layers with superheated water and detergents, blowing particles off the carpet fibers to pull out stubborn stains.
Carpets are made of fibers from a number of materials, and most of those fibers are absorbent. Aside from absorbing stains, carpets can hold odors from pets, cooking, smoking, spills and a variety of other factors. These odors tend to linger and can be nearly impossible to eliminate using vacuums; and powders or chemicals are just a very temporary solution and can leave residues behind. By using carpet steam cleaning technology along with gentle but aggressive detergents, odor causing molecules can be washed away along with dirt, dust, and the majority of allergens. Professional steam carpet cleaning can keep your carpets smelling fresh.
