Carpets are loved by many … and why wouldn’t they be?  After all, they provide us with warmth and they fill out homes with some beautiful aesthetics. Having carpets though comes with a responsibility. It’s important that regular upkeep is maintained in order to prolong the life and appearance of your carpets.  Even though vacuum cleaning will be effective in removing some of the superficial particles on top of your carpets, it doesn’t do much for the real issues.  In this article, we’re going to be explaining why steam carpet cleaning is better than using a standard vacuum cleaner.

Firstly, what is Steam Carpet Cleaning?

Steam carpet cleaning, the preferred method of carpet cleaning involves the use of a method called ‘hot water extraction’.  This essentially involves ejecting extremely hot water out onto the carpets before immediately being sucked-up again.  When the water is sucked by up by the machine, it’ll take with it what a standard vacuuming cleaner can’t.  With hot water extraction, you can expect the removal of bacteria, pet dander, microorganisms and allergens that get caught up in the carpet fibres.  Steam carpet cleaning is not only great for removing all those nasties from your carpets, but it also plays a large role in maintaining the health of them.

Why Steam Carpet Cleaning is Better Than Using a Standard Vacuum Cleaner?

When you use a standard vacuum cleaner to clean your carpets, you’re only removing superficial particles.  As explained above, there are many different types of bacteria (even mould) that can build up in your carpets.  For this reason, it’s crucial that you use a cleaning method that is going to remove them.
