Steam Cleaning / Hot-water Extraction method in other words is commonly referred to as restoration cleaning by professionals.
There comes a time when all other methods apart from Steam Cleaning is no longer effective; so we can now consider the most effective way of restoring the carpet to its cleanest state. This is when Steam-cleaning comes into place.
This method is recommended by major carpet manufacturers.
The 7 steps we use in restoring your carpet are as follows:
1- Pre-Inspection of carpet fibres. The most common forms of carpet are Wool, Cotton & Jute, Nylon, Polyester, Olefin, and Acrylic.
2- Vacuum – Carpet is pre-vacuumed with the 18inch Windsor professional vacuum cleaner to extract soil, dirt, dust, hair, crumbs etc.
3- Pre – Condition – the carpet is lightly sprayed with a non-toxic cleaning agent. The pre-treatment cleaner us the most important cleaning agent in the process of hot-water extraction. Using high-quality solutions / agents from Steam Way International.
4- Agitate & Dwell - the carpet is agitated, allowing the non-toxic cleaning agent to run between the carpet fibres (for a more thorough clean). Agitation assists in suspension of soil. Dwell times gives the chemical time to work.
Proper agitation and dwell time will allow reduced chemical use, where a lot of households are concerned about the use of chemicals.
