What Happens During A Carpet Steam Cleaning Service?
Those who are now experiencing the soiling of their carpet by accidental contact or by pets’ accidents know how distressing this situation can be. It’s happened to many of us. You’re busy doing something, and suddenly you see a spot on the carpet, and it ruins the moment.
The first thing you need to do if you plan on using rug steam cleaning services is to make sure they offer carpet steam cleaning services. Handheld vacuums that suck out dirt and debris will not do the job.
Here is how a cleaning company steams your carpet.
Preconditioning provides a thorough deep cleaning on 100% of the carpet. The spray foam and water pressure together will loosen trapped dirt, soil, and debris. A machine that goes as low as -33°F below the carpet surface can deodorize pet odor problems using ozone. It will also profoundly cleanse carpets of any infestation of mold, mildew, or dust mites, so people with allergies have less issues with airflow in their lungs.
Preconditioning your carpet means that an organic solvent such as water or CO2 is introduced into the fibers of the rug. This loosens deep down dirt and stains so that they can be effectively removed during the steam cleaning process.
The next step in the process is to remove the moisture from the carpet using a dehumidifier, which most professional cleaning services will use immediately after extracting the contaminated solution. The dehumidifier removes between 80% and 90% of water and leaves a hygienic area where people may walk on again. Although antibacterial hand sanitizer is used at the start and end of every job, it cannot be used throughout for fear that damp areas could be more easily contaminated.
Once all of the water has been removed from the rug, it will be vacuumed and placed in a new spill-proof container.
A solution will be applied to each side of the rug. The rug is left under pressure for between 2 and 3 hours. After this, the rug will be exposed to fresh air, and thorough vacuuming will completely dry the rug. Dried rugs are vacuumed from a water bath, which allows the rug to dry quickly without the risk of mildew or mold forming before it dries
A carpet steam cleaning service may use fans or heaters in order to speed up the drying process. Many times, after a home or business owner has had their carpets cleaned by a professional service, they are anxious to have them dry as quickly as possible. Therefore, the carpet cleaning service may make use of fans to circulate the air.
A carpet is a big purchase for a homeowner, and most carpet owners want to ensure that the investment they are making in the flooring will pay off in both the short-term and the long-term. This means that it is important to keep a carpet clean and stain-free so that it keeps looking its best.
