Why Steam Carpet Cleaning Is Best
#1 – Steam Carpet Cleaning Removes Pollutants
Dirty carpet holds pollutants from many sources:
- Pet dander, cockroach allergens and dead bugs.
- Lead and foreign particles tracked in from outdoors and the workplace.
- Carpeting can absorb and then release VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) from paint, cigarette smoke and other sources.
Significant quantities of pollutants can be released into the air inside your home with just normal daily activities. Further, young children playing on carpet are much more likely to come in contact with pollutants in carpeting.
According to the Environmental Protection Agency:
It cannot be over-emphasized that proper cleaning and maintenance is a critical component of any flooring system.
To help ensure longer life, maintain appearance, and help protect indoor air quality, carpet requires regular vacuuming with a well-functioning vacuum cleaner equipped with strong suction and a high-performance filtration bag and periodic wet extraction cleaning.
#2 – Steam Carpet Cleaning Clears Dust Mites
They’re inside all our homes – microscopic dust mites. Upholstered furniture, carpet, mattresses, bedding, curtains and soft, fabric toys — that’s where they live. They thrive in moist and warm environments like ours. Feeding on flakes of human skin, pollen, fungi, bacteria, and animal dander.
Dust mite protein and their waste products are known allergens. Normal activity releases the microscopic particles – we breathe them in – and worsen our allergies.
To minimize dust mites in your carpets — first consider prevention. Regular, thorough vacuuming using a vacuum with a HEPA filter is a good start. This special filter traps dust mites and the dander they feed on as you vacuum.
We kill any dust mites living in your carpet as we clean. They can’t survive the high temperatures of our proven carpet cleaning methods.
#3 – Steam Carpet Cleaning Helps Prevent Mold
Molds produce allergens which can trigger allergic reactions; carpeting is at high risk for mold growth. To grow, mold needs moisture, oxygen, dust, and a surface to grow on.
Keeping your carpet dry is key to preventing mold.
When it rains and snows, it’s easy for moisture to be tracked onto your carpet. Using door mats and removing shoes is a good policy. When it does get wet, blotting, drying and vacuuming will help to prevent mold.
When standing water occurs because of a leak or spill – all exposed carpeting must be cleaned and dried immediately. This includes the top and bottom, padding and the floor underneath.
Our emergency water removal response team is available 24/7.
We have the machines and fans needed to extract the water, clean and dry out your carpets.
#4 – Steam Carpet Cleaning Extends Carpet Life
Today’s high-performance carpets rarely “wear out”. Instead, your carpet slowly begins to lose it’s original beauty and impact as soil and traffic take it’s toll.
To retain your carpet’s original luster and beauty, deep-clean every 12 to 18 months. This frequency may need to be adjusted depending upon:
- Life-style of your household
- Frequency of vacuuming
- Light or dark carpeting
It’s important to deep clean your carpet BEFORE it becomes excessively soiled. Soil grinds away at the carpet fibers shortening it’s life. And, as the soil is pushed deeper and deeper into the carpet from foot traffic – your carpets become harder and more expensive to clean.
Because it’s the BEST – we use steam extraction for deep carpet cleaning. We spray safe, bio-degradable cleaning agents on your carpet and then remove the dirt and solution with a powerful, truck-mounted vacuum. Our professional-grade equipment and cleaning agents are much more powerful than the rental units and store bought products available to you.
