Carpet Steam Cleaning - Ongar CM5 by Prolux Carpet Cleaning London
Steam cleaning is a deep cleaning process that combines the use of various chemical agents, a pressurized blast of hot water, and steam to remove dirt from various materials and surfaces. Different types of cleaners are used for the job, depending on the specific application.
Rug and Carpet Hot Water Vapor Treatment - CM5 - London
When it comes to cleaning carpets, cleaning with hot water vapors has become the most popular and complete method now a days. It is safe, mild and efficient and appropriate for most rugs and materials. The heat and the wetness help dislodge grime set into the strands of the carpet. Carpet steam cleaning machines use a solution of hot water and some type of carpet cleaning agent. The mixture is sent through pressurized jets allowing the vaporized water to penetrate the fibers of the carpet and to loosen the dirt. As the detergent releases the grime, the cleaner uses a strong vacuum to remove the now dirty water and excess detergent. The final result is a carpet that is fully clean and is going to dry in a couple of hours in most climates.
Steam carpet cleaning with purified water without detergents is recommended for recently purchased rugs to clean and sanitize before placing them in the rooms for regular use. One fringe benefit - the high temperature kills mite's eggs and larvae nested in the fabric. Cleaning carpets with hot water vapors gets rid of bad stale odors present in as well.
