Vacuuming Doesn’t Cut It

Listen, we certainly don’t want to discourage you from vacuuming your carpets. In fact, most carpet cleaners recommend that you vacuum your floors — carpet, hardwood, and even tile and grout — at least once per week.

This can drastically cut down on the amount of dirt, soil, and other dander that builds up within the fibers of your carpet.

However, it should also be noted that dry vacuuming is not a cure-all. There are still a number of particles that embed themselves within the fibers of your carpet — particles which, over time, can cause discoloration, allergies, odors, stains, and even carpet wear and tear.

That’s why it’s imperative that you have your carpets professionally steam cleaned once or twice per year.

Remove Pollutants

There’s a whole lot more than just dirt and soil that gets tracked into your house and embedded within the fibers of your carpet.

So much so that it’s actually quite disturbing to think about.

A few of the pollutants that can make their way into your homes and become intertwined with the carpet fibers include:

  • Pet dander
  • Pollen and allergens
  • Dead bugs
  • Dust/dust mites
  • Cigarette smoke
  • Volatile organic compounds

Professional carpet cleaners utilize powerful steam cleaning methods which blast these pollutants from the carpet fibers with hot water (and, of course, steam) and extract them with a highly efficient commercial-grade vacuum.

Avoid Must And Mold

Another advantage of steam cleaning is the fact that it doesn’t rely on chemicals or other liquid compounds which can not only cause health and safety hazards, but also lead to the formation of mold underneath the carpet.

Steam cleaning uses hot water extraction which is not only powerful enough to clean the carpets, but also ensures that the carpet doesn’t become soaked.

“But wait a minute, didn’t you say it uses hot water?”

Yes, but when you entrust the professional carpet cleaners in San Antonio, you can rest assured that our expedited drying leave behind a safe, dry, and completely clean surface.

Extend Carpet Life

Finally, steam cleaning is downright better for your carpets. Because our carpet cleaners take the time to inspect the materials and fibers they are working with, you can rest assured that your carpet won’t be damaged or soiled by our methods.

In fact, our steam cleaning methods include eco-friendly detergents that are tough on stains, odor, and soils but still safe for you, your family, and your pets.
