What is steam cleaning?

At Cleaning Pro we have invested heavily in all the best cleaning equipment to help us deliver great results every time. The device we use the most is probably our truck-mounted, Hot Water Extraction (AKA steam cleaning) machine. It isn’t suitable for all materials but it can be employed with most kinds of carpet and upholstery, and it achieves an unparalleled clean when used correctly.

To use carpet cleaning as an example, the Hot Water Extraction method is super efficient, safe and environmentally friendly. By using HWE we avoid exposing you to the chemicals that other carpet cleaning techniques expose you to, and the truck-mounted system doesn’t require us to use any of your energy.

Highly pressurised water cleans deep into the pile, completely rinsing out the cleaning solution used to remove unwanted dust, debris and bacteria from your carpets. The ‘hot’ in Hot Water Extraction is important because this heat helps to aid the efficiency of the clean along with the high amount of pressure used by the system to clean deep into the fibres and kill bacteria.

Nowadays you might see lots of relatively cheap carpet cleaning rental machines on the internet or in the supermarket that can make the DIY approach to carpet cleaning seem like a good idea, but there are many reasons to avoid going down that road. In fact, some of the jobs we’ve completed in the past have been to fix problems caused by people trying to clean carpets or upholstery themselves!

The most common problem you run into with these devices is over-wetting. This happens because rental machines rarely have the vacuum suction power to extract all the water that is put into the carpet. This can leave nasty, lingering odours caused by bacterial growth that you’ll only be able to get rid of by hiring a professional. Shrinkage can also occur with carpets that aren’t dried properly if the base of the carpet swells up and expands when wet.

At Cleaning Pro we offer an excellent service at a fair price, so there’s no reason not to hire a professional when you need your carpets or upholstery cleaned in Sheffield. Get in touch today and book a free, no-obligation quote!
