Steam cleaning is the method of choice for Carpet Cleaning Atlanta and all successful carpet cleaning organizations. It is the only method available to date that can remove dirt, dust, debris and allergens from even the deepest pile. What's more, though some cleaning companies add some sort of cleaning product or cleaning enzyme to the water used to create the steam, in most cases this is unnecessary. Steam is an Eco-friendly natural cleaner, so there is really no need to introduce and harsh detergents or toxic chemicals into the picture.
Steam cleaning is appropriate for most common carpet fabrics and fibers, and can also be used for upholstery cleaning. Heat sensitive materials such as silk, thin plastic and others, may require alternate cleaning methods. The method entails applying pressurized steam onto the item being cleaned to loosen dirt, pollen, dander and other pollutants. Though steam vapors do contain a certain amount of moisture, the process is considered to be low moisture. Once the steam has been applied, all the moisture is extracted, and along with it, all of the dirt.
Steam cleaning allows for carpets and upholstery to be deep cleaned without over wetting them. This is critical, as wet or damp fabrics can take a long time to dry, and extended drying times can lead to the growth of mold or mildew, which are not only unsightly and smelly, but hazardous to your health, as well. Carpets and upholstery that are steam cleaned by professionals are ready for use within hours of completion of the process.
When sanitation is a concern, steam once again presents a practical and effective solution. Many carpet cleaning organizations like Carpet Cleaning Atlanta also provide tile and grout cleaning services. They simply adapt their carpet cleaning equipment for use in bathrooms, kitchens and on tile floors. Steam kills germs and removes all traces of mildew, soap scum and lime deposits.
Professional steam cleaning equipment and consumer grade equipment sold for home use are quite different. Do it yourself steam cleaners often provide less than desirable results. Common problems are low temperatures, poor extraction power and water reservoir and holding tank issues.
