We receive the question, “We have allergy symptoms. What is the best approach to clean carpets?” several times every week. The best approach to clean carpets – using chemical cleaners or steam cleaning – is still up for debate. Each approach has a large number of supporters and detractors, so the only way to decide which is best for your house is to research them both and see what they have to offer. After that, you may decide for yourself how to clean your carpets the most effectively.
Deep cleaning is another name for steam cleaning. This is due to the fact that it is the only technique for cleaning carpets that has been shown to eliminate at least 97 percent of bacteria and other contaminants.
The Difference in using Steam vs. Chemical
The capacity for deep cleaning is just one factor to take into account when it comes to carpet cleaning. It may take much longer for the carpet to dry after treating it with steam cleaning because the water is heated to a very high temperature. This isn’t necessarily a negative though…
It could take 45 minutes to a few hours, depending on how well the cleaner’s extraction system works and how tough the carpet is. Steam cleaning might be a better choice for people who are worried about chemical exposure.
The approach you select will depend on your unique requirements and, if any chemical use issues. You’ll need to take into account another issue, the cost, which can vary depending on whether you use chemical or steam. You’ll also need to consider the efficiency and effectiveness of each approach. A great way to do this is by speaking with friends and family to see what their experiences have been like.
A professional carpet cleaner is a wise choice whether you are moving into or out of a house or simply want your home to seem brighter than it did.
Despite the fact that steam cleaners do the majority of the labour-intensive tasks, there are a few things you can do to prepare your home before the pros arrive. Even if it appears to seem like extra labour to you, it ensures that the cleaning will be of a high caliber and will continue to feel like new.
Not only does the carpet look nice after we’re finished, but you can also rest assured knowing that no nasty chemicals have been used. For additional information, contact us at 0438 554 830 / [email protected].
