1. Heat and weight of water:
To begin, water is heated until it reaches a high heat. In this way, the liquid becomes vapor. Why? What is the reason?
2. When Under Pressure
There’s more to it than just heat. It’s also pressure. A high temperature water solution is forcefully injected into the rug. This high-pressure action allows the steam to penetrate the most hidden areas of the carpet.
3. No Surfactants in this Party
Cleaning agents often accompany steam. This agent, also known as surfactant, reduces the water’s tension on its surface, so that it can spread better and wet more surfaces. This increases steam’s ability to lift dirt.
4. Extraction – The grand finale
The steam will loosen dirt. Once it has lifted and loosened the dirt, you can begin extraction. With powerful vacuums, moisture is extracted, as well as dirt, grime, cleaning agents, etc. What is the end result? You’ll have a carpet which is clean and almost dry.
5. Allergen Annihilation
This steam is also deadly to bacteria, mites, and many other allergens. A healthier environment means a happier household for allergy-sufferers.
6. The Green Guardian
Steam cleaning’s eco-friendly features are often highlighted. Mother Nature is happy, because there are fewer chemicals, and the indoor air remains clean.
7. Durability and lifespan
Steam cleaning enhances carpet longevity by rejuvenating the fibers. Abrasive particles begin to wear away the fibers of the carpet over time. However, steam will restore its vigor.
