Steam cleaning is a carpet cleaning service that uses hot water and steam to remove dirt. Cleaning carpets with hot water vapor is especially effective when it comes to hard embedded dirt, such as crusted food and mud. In order to remove dirt, the steam cleaner puts the steam through high-pressure jets that separate and loosens the dirt lodged in the carpet.
Since steam loosens the fibers, it is a much more effective way to clean than solely using vacuum cleaners. Vacuum cleaners only clean the surface area of the carpet, whereas steam cleaners get right in there and make sure the carpet is removed of all dirt and grime. This type of carpet cleaning is a much more effective way to get rid of all the dirt residing in the carpet.
