Carpet Steam Cleaning by Jason Gluckman

Just as carpet manufacturing has evolved, so has carpet cleaning. Most manufacturers recommend ‘carpet steam cleaning’ for cleaning modern-day carpets. We should, however, use the steam cleaning method after verifying that the carpet fibers will not be damaged by steam. Sometimes, if a carpet is made from a very tender thread, steam cleaning could harm it. For most other carpet types, steam cleaning is considered an effective cleaning method.

The process of ‘carpet steam cleaning’ uses a simple scientific phenomenon for ‘deep cleaning’ the toughest dirt by drawing dirt to the surface and wiping it off before it has a chance to stain. To steam clean a carpet, use a liquid-based cleaning agent, which can be vaporized or turned, into steam, a ‘steam cleaning machine’ that is also referred to as a ‘carpet extractor’ and a vacuum cleaner. It is always a good idea to choose a mild solution as it is safe for the carpet as well as the individual using it. As far as the machines or extractors are concerned, use self-contained ones that have in-built vacuum cleaners. Alternatively, use the extractor first and then a vacuum cleaner.

After selecting a cleaning solution, follow the instructions provided in the user’s manual. Then, move the extractor over the carpet surface (as directed in the user’s manual), gradually covering all areas of the carpet surface. The extractor injects the cleaning solution into the carpet in the form of steam or vapors that compel dirt to come to the surface. This process is completed in a few minutes, and with some machines, even a few seconds. Then, the extractor extracts the dirt using air at a very high pressure. After extraction, the carpet is vacuumed to ensure complete removal of dirt.

Carpet steam cleaning, which is also referred to as extraction, is considered very effective in deep cleaning. It not only helps in cleaning the carpet surface, but also cleans the carpet base and carpet fibers. Depending on budget and requirement, choose extractors with powerful motors or those with less powerful motors. Also choose the accessories that will prove most helpful, like brushes and cords.

  2. Are you talking about a truck mount with high heat or a self contained “steam cleaner” that rolls around on it’s own?
