Hot Water Extraction Cleaning Method

Hot water extraction or steam carpet cleaning London service is a very popular and effective method for deep cleaning and sanitising. It is ecologically friendly and the safest human and pet-friendly method for cleaning.

As a reputable carpet cleaning company we use some of the most powerful equipment in London MYTEE 1003DX SPEEDSTER DELUXE. Our goal is to leave your carpets and upholstery almost dry and clean at a fraction of the time with our professional carpet cleaning services. It is suitable rugs and mattresses as well, depending on their fabrics in residential properties, as well as business and industrial premises.

Although there is an actual steam cleaning industrial process, in the context of carpets and rugs cleaning, “steam cleaning” is, in fact, hot water soil extraction cleaning, which is professionally known as HWE. This carpet cleaning method uses equipment that sprays heated water, sometimes with added carpet cleaning detergents.

Simultaneously, the water is vacuumed up, along with any dislodged and dissolved dirt. Many carpet manufacturers recommend professional hot water extraction as the most effective carpet cleaning method which also provides a deeper clean. Actual steam could damage man-made carpet fibers and change the characteristics as they are usually set using heat. Natural fiber carpets such as wool can shrink, velvet-piled carpets and Berber carpets will become fuzzy which is known as pile burst.

Steam Carpet Cleaning – Positive and Negative Aspects

Because of the name – steam cleaning, it is logical to assume that it involves steam. The biggest positive aspect of steam cleaning is that this is perhaps the best deep cleaning method for any type of carpet or upholstery. It is proven to be such a method, because it does not clean only the surface of the carpets, but it is also able to remove all this dirt and particles that tend to go and be accumulated deep in the carpet. So the method is really helpful for removing all those difficult particles that otherwise it is not easy to be reached.

We use steam cleaning even in our upholstery cleaning service as the best way for getting rid of all bacteria from the mattresses and sofas. It is the best carpet cleaning method for stain removal as well, because of its efficiency and ability for cleaning the carpet fiber in depth.

The negative aspect is if the products and chemicals used for the steam cleaning machine are not tried-and-true. There are some companies, offering really cheap service and in order to provide such price, they have to decide if this is going to reflect the quality of the service or the quality of the products they use for cleaning. But if the chemicals used for the method are safe, like ours in Fine Carpet Cleaning, than you should not worry that this might cause any damage to your carpets.


Always Choose Professional CARPET Cleaning Company

You should also be sure to talk to your steam cleaning service provider about how they perform teir steam cleaning service. Make sure that they can guarantee that they do not use too much water or they do not let the water sit on the carpet for too long. This is to prevent mold or mildew in the end. You should not worry about having such a problem if the water is vacuumed properly.

And another fact that you should have in mind is the time that is needed for this cleaning method. For the deep cleaning a few hours are needed to fulfill the process. After that it is preferable the cleaned carpet to be left without traffic for at least five hours, and if possible for twenty-four. This could be a bit tough for businesses for sure. Keep in mind that there is always the option to consider using steam cleaning services during the weekend.
