Why use carpet steam cleaning over other methods?

There have been many types of dry encapsulation or dry compound powder cleaning systems that claim to be “quick drying”.
But carpet steam cleaning is hands down the most effective when it comes to a cleaner,
healthier and fresher smelling carpet!

Heat is generated and passed through a solution tank into the carpeted areas. This
disinfects and sanitises the filthiest carpets.
When steam cleaning is done correctly, the drying time can be as little as 3 to 6 hours.

Carpet Steam Cleaning Step 1

Dry Vacuum

The first step is dry vacuuming. This is very important, to remove all the dry particle soil initially present in the carpet pile before steam cleaning.

In this process the cleaner removes the dry particulate soil that actually represents approximately 75 to 80% of the dirt present in your carpet. Hard to believe, but true. It can all be removed in this initial dry vacuum process using one of our industrial vacuum cleaners.

It is important to vacuum regularly to improve the overall lifespan of your carpet. This helps reduce the “wear and tear” factor that comes with soil abrasion.  Soil abrasion happens from dirt in the carpet that hasn’t been vacuumed out. 

We advise all customers to ensure they have a high grade vacuum cleaner that carries a Hepa filter to help with sufferers of allergies.

Pre Spray and Rotary Agitation Scrub

In the second step, our technicians apply a pre-spray shampoo to the carpet pile. Which is left on for about 5-10 minutes to ensure maximum soil suspension.  This also helps crystallize the particles to the surface of the carpet pile. Next, they will perform a scrub agitation using a motorised rotary brush machine. The scrub agitation is very useful in helping to remove stubborn heavy traffic soiling and tough stains. 

Please note – our team know to take particular care when scrubbing, so they don’t distort, burn or damage the carpet in any way. Next, hot water extraction is used to remove the suspended soils and detergents from the carpet.

Hot Water Extraction

In the fourth step, a hot solution (130 degrees) containing an emulsifier rinse is injected into the carpet pile under mild pressure.  Followed by a simultaneous vacuum extraction that lifts the dirt out and also any excess moisture.

Your technician will apply protective squares or coasters to all furniture to prevent marks on the carpet after it dries.

We also use an emulsifier rinse in the hot solution to ensure there is no surface tension when injected into the carpet. This ensures that no detergent residue is left behind that can cause rapid re-soiling.

Rapid re-soiling is the cause for many customer complaints because consumers feel that their carpet wasn’t cleaned properly in the first place and that’s why it looks dirty again so quickly.

Emulsifiers and acid rinses are just as important as using the proper pre-spray detergent when cleaning your carpets. You will not believe how many companies don’t use it at all.

Carpet Deodorise and Grooming

Lastly, we will apply a sanitising deodoriser to ensure a fresh overall feel and smell to the finished job. The sanitiser also helps to ensure that all microbial or bacterial materials are destroyed. Its job is to break down any bio-organisms that may have been present on the carpet. This can be from things like; vomit, pet urine, faeces, cultured food products or any type of organic matter.

Finally, the technician will groom the carpet to set the pile. The grooming is an important final step in ensuring that carpet piles are left as open as possible. This will ensure maximum airflow distribution for fast drying.  Most importantly, so you don’t have to wait long for the carpets to dry.
