Steam Carpet Cleaning
The practice of carpet steam cleaning involves hot water being fed to a spray extraction tool or wand, coupled to a pump vacuum power unit. The cleaning solution is injected under pressure deep into the carpet through water jet nozzles.
The water will then pierce through the fiber all the way down to the backing. Embedded soil will then start to loosen, and then oil and grease deposits will be easily removed, resulting to a carpet cleaner than it has ever been.
There are a number of kinds and makes of steam carpet cleaners available on the market, ranging from small portables to the large and very powerful truck mounted units. The principle is the basically similar no matter what model you decide to utilize.
The models that are truck mounted are designed so that only the hose and the wand are taken into the area being cleaned. These units are very powerful, delivering hot water and generating a high vacuum recovery that can be powered by diesel fuel, gas, propane, or even by the motor of the truck.
Most carpet manufacturers, fiber producers, and professional cleaners support this method for achieving soil removal efficiency. With the current up-to-date apparatus and technology, we can honestly say that we are more than capable of high production and cleaning of carpet.
The real disadvantage to steam carpet cleaning are the problems that are associated with over wetting and longer drying times. These can easily be solved by a skilled operator who uses equipment that is well-maintained and in excellent overall operating condition.
