What is Carpet Steam Cleaning and why should you steam clean your carpets?

Carpet steam cleaning, also known as hot water extraction, is a deep cleaning method used to clean carpets. It involves injecting hot water and a cleaning solution into the carpet fibers, followed by powerful suction to extract dirt, stains, allergens, and other contaminants.

Here are some reasons why you should consider steam cleaning your carpets:

  • Deep Cleaning: Steam cleaning is highly effective at removing deeply embedded dirt, grime, and allergens from your carpets. The hot water and cleaning solution penetrate the carpet fibers, loosening and lifting the dirt and debris, which is then extracted by the suction. This thorough cleaning process helps restore the carpet’s freshness and cleanliness.
  • Stain Removal: Steam cleaning can effectively remove stubborn stains from carpets. The combination of hot water, cleaning agents, and powerful suction can break down and extract a wide range of stains, including those caused by spills, food, pets, or dirt. It helps revitalize the appearance of your carpets, making them look cleaner and more vibrant.
  • Elimination of Allergens and Odors: Carpets can harbor allergens such as dust mites, pet dander, pollen, and mold spores, which can contribute to indoor allergies and respiratory issues. Steam cleaning helps eliminate these allergens, reducing their presence in your home and improving indoor air quality. Additionally, steam cleaning can effectively remove unpleasant odors trapped in the carpet fibers, leaving your carpets smelling fresh and clean.
  • Prevention of Mold and Mildew: Carpets that are exposed to moisture, such as spills or high humidity, are at risk of mold and mildew growth. Steam cleaning can help eliminate excess moisture, preventing the conditions that promote mold and mildew development. This is particularly important in humid environments or for carpets located in areas prone to moisture.
  • Extended Carpet Lifespan: Regular steam cleaning helps maintain the condition and longevity of your carpets. By removing dirt, debris, and stains, you prevent them from accumulating and causing damage to the carpet fibers over time. Proper maintenance through steam cleaning can help extend the lifespan of your carpets, saving you money on premature replacements.
  • Health and Hygiene: Clean carpets contribute to a healthier living environment, especially for households with children or pets. Steam cleaning helps remove bacteria, viruses, and other harmful microorganisms from the carpets, promoting a hygienic space and reducing the risk of illness or infections.

It’s important to note that steam cleaning should be performed by professionals who have the expertise, equipment, and knowledge to ensure proper technique and avoid over-wetting the carpets. Professional steam cleaning services can provide thorough and effective cleaning while minimizing any potential risks or damage to your carpets.

What types of carpets do we steam clean

We offer a professional carpet cleaning service and are equipped to clean a wide range of carpet types, including but not limited to:

  • Synthetic Carpets: Synthetic carpets are popular due to their durability, affordability, and wide availability. Examples include nylon, polyester, and olefin carpets. Professional cleaners have the expertise to clean these carpets effectively without causing damage or discoloration.
  • Wool Carpets: Wool carpets are known for their luxurious feel and natural resilience. However, they require special care and expertise when it comes to cleaning. Professional carpet cleaners are trained to handle wool carpets safely, using appropriate techniques and cleaning agents to avoid shrinkage or fiber damage.
  • Berber Carpets: Berber carpets feature a looped construction and are known for their durability. They can be made from various materials such as wool, nylon, or olefin. Due to their unique texture, Berber carpets may require specialized cleaning methods to avoid snagging or unraveling the loops. Professional cleaners understand the intricacies of cleaning Berber carpets and can ensure a thorough clean without compromising their appearance or structure.
  • Saxony Carpets: Saxony carpets have a dense, plush pile and a luxurious appearance. They are commonly found in residential settings. Professional carpet cleaners are experienced in maintaining and cleaning Saxony carpets, using techniques that preserve their softness and minimize flattening or matting of the fibers.
  • Frieze Carpets: Frieze carpets feature a twisted and textured pile, giving them a casual and contemporary look. The longer fibers can trap dirt and require specialized cleaning methods to ensure a deep clean without damaging the texture. Professional cleaners have the knowledge and tools to effectively clean and rejuvenate Frieze carpets.
  • Cut and Loop Carpets: Cut and loop carpets combine cut pile and looped pile sections to create unique patterns and textures. They require careful attention during the cleaning process to ensure that the loops are not pulled or damaged. Professional carpet cleaners are skilled in handling cut and loop carpets, ensuring a thorough clean without compromising their design or structure.

Regardless of the carpet type, professional carpet cleaners have the expertise to assess the material, understand its specific cleaning requirements, and use appropriate methods, equipment, and cleaning agents to achieve optimal results while preserving the carpet’s appearance and integrity.

From Enquiry to Job Completion

The Carpet Steam Cleaning process typically involves several steps from the initial enquiry to the completion of the job. Here’s a general overview of how the process unfolds:

  • Enquiry: The process begins when a potential client contacts us to inquire about our carpet steam cleaning services. This can be done through various means such as phone calls, emails, or website contact forms. During the enquiry, you gather information about the client’s needs, including the size and condition of the carpeted area, any specific stains or concerns, and their preferred service date.
  • Assessment and Quotation: Based on the information provided during the enquiry, we assess the scope of the job. We may request additional details or schedule a visit to the location to inspect the carpets in person. The purpose of the assessment is to evaluate the carpet’s condition, identify any specific issues or stains, and determine the appropriate cleaning method and equipment required. Once the assessment is complete, we prepare a quotation outlining the cost and terms of the service. The quotation is then sent to the client for review.
  • Agreement and Scheduling: If the client is satisfied with the quotation, they confirm their agreement and schedule the carpet steam cleaning service. This typically involves selecting a convenient date and time for the cleaning to take place. It’s important to consider factors such as the availability of our team and the client’s preferences when scheduling the job.
  • Preparations: Prior to the scheduled cleaning, you communicate any necessary preparations to the client. This may include instructions such as clearing the carpeted area of any furniture or objects, ensuring access to water and power sources, and any other specific requirements for a smooth cleaning process. Clear communication helps both parties prepare adequately.
  • Cleaning Process: On the agreed-upon date, our carpet steam cleaning team arrives at the location with the necessary equipment, including a steam cleaner and appropriate cleaning solutions. They start by vacuuming the carpet to remove loose dirt and debris. Next, they pre-treat any stubborn stains or heavily soiled areas with suitable cleaning solutions. The team then uses the steam cleaner to apply hot water and detergent onto the carpet, which is simultaneously agitated and extracted, effectively loosening dirt, stains, and contaminants from the carpet fibers. The high temperature and pressure of the steam help sanitize and deodorize the carpet. The process is repeated across the entire carpeted area until all sections are thoroughly cleaned.
  • Post-Cleaning Inspection: Once the cleaning is complete, our team inspects the carpet to ensure it is clean, free of visible stains, and adequately dried. They may use fans or other drying equipment to expedite the drying process if necessary. If any spots or stains remain, they may perform additional spot treatments to address them.
  • Client Satisfaction and Payment: After the post-cleaning inspection, the client is given the opportunity to inspect the cleaned carpet and provide feedback. If the client is satisfied with the results, they proceed to make the payment as per the agreed-upon terms. We offer various payment methods such as cash, check, credit card, or online transfer. We provide the client with a receipt or invoice for the services rendered.
  • Job Completion and Follow-up: With the payment received, the carpet steam cleaning job is considered complete. We may ask the client for a testimonial or review of the service to gather feedback. We may follow up with the client after a few days to ensure their continued satisfaction and address any additional concerns or questions.

The drying time after carpet steam cleaning can vary depending on factors such as humidity, carpet thickness, airflow, and the cleaning process used.
