Steam Cleaning Your Carpets Regularly
Steam cleaning your carpets is necessary as regular maintenance to get the most out of your carpet in both lifespan and quality. It’s important to remember that often times only professional steam cleaning is covered under your warranty.
Steam cleaning helps keep your family safe and healthy.
As the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has noted, most Americans spend the majority of their time indoors. The EPA also tells us that many more pollutants are found inside homes than outside them. Because you spend so much time in your home, it’s essential to get rid of as many pollutants as possible. Steam cleaning is the best choice to sterilize carpets.
Steam cleaning removes debris.
Your vacuum may be able to suck out some dirt, dust and pollutants, but it can’t blast away debris that’s stuck to carpet fibers. A hot water jet system is used during steam cleaning to ensure that this nasty buildup is broken down and removed from your carpeting. Hot water also actively kills bacteria and germs so that they don’t cause health problems for your family or pets.
Steam cleaning restores the beauty of your carpets.
Because steam cleaning is so effective at removing buildup and debris, it can substantially improve the appearance of your carpets. Shampoo is used during the process to lubricate carpet fibers and ensure that they don’t break. The combination of hot water, steam and special cleaning products means that you’ll enjoy great-looking carpets for years to come.
