How we clean Carpets (Hot Water Extraction method)

Although there is an industrial cleaning process that is in fact steam cleaning, in the context of carpet cleaning, “steam cleaning” is usually a misnomer for or mis-characterization of the hot water extraction cleaning method.

The hot water extraction cleaning method uses equipment that sprays heated water (not steam), with added cleaning chemicals, on the carpet while simultaneously vacuuming the sprayed water along with any dislodged and dissolved dirt.

Many carpet manufacturers recommend professional hot water extraction as the most effective carpet cleaning method.

Benefits of hot water extraction method

Usually, carpets are a long-term investment that require regular maintenance and cleaning, rather than cleaning it with dense chemicals every once in a while.

Most used method

Hot water extraction carpet cleaning is probably the most used carpet cleaning method, as it utilizes all the fundamentals of cleaning. It does an excellent job in eliminating the greatest amounts of soil and allergic health issues from the environment.

Deep cleaning method

It is a deeper clean method better than its alternatives, namely shampooing and dry cleaning, that only serves to clean the surface of a carpet. In fact, it is also much more effective at removing stains and bad odors than ordinary surface cleaners.

Environmental friendly

This method is an eco-friendly carpet cleaning approach. Natural and non-toxic solutions are used. Most alternative cleaning methods rely heavily on harsh chemicals which endanger health risks for both people and pets.
