Hot Water Extraction/Steam Cleaning for Carpets and Rugs
Firstly a full dry vacuum with a professional grade, commercial vacuum cleaner. This is very important, any dry soiling should be removed prior to the fabric being made wet. A crucial part of the process often missed out by other cleaners. Dry soiling left in the by not vacuuming first, then becomes harder to remove once wet and will affect the overall final appearance. A proper commercial vacuum cleaner is geared for high air flow and has 2 motors – one for the vacuum and the other for the brush so it removes the most amount of dry soiling.
We then we apply the non detergent cleaning solution to the fabric which is then agitated mechanically (with a dedicated machine) which is tough on dirt but kind to fabric. This gets our solution in to contact with much more dirt and fabric and helps to break down the soiling. Again agitation is a key part of the process and if missed out will drastically affect the final results.
Then, we rinse and extract the soiling from the carpet with our van mounted extractor. The extractor is mounted on the van so we can use our clean water tank on the van to supply the machine. The dirty water tank is also located in the van so all the dirty water is stored there, not in your house. This improves air quality within your home and means no coming to your sink for water and carrying buckets through your house! The machine is massively more powerful than the normal portable machines and has massive airflow to pick up more soiling and moisture leaving cleaner and dryer carpets. The hoses for the machine are much larger in diameter to take advantage of the massive airflow and so unleash the cleaning Beast!
Finally, we can then add a stain protector to the fabric if required.
