Keep Your Carpet Looking Clean and Pristine

If your home experiences a ton of foot traffic (do you have children, pets?), then you probably are very familiar with the plight of keeping carpet looking clean and pristine. Luckily, The Steam Team is here to step in and lend you a hand. So without further ado, here are three basic rules to keeping your carpet in tip top shape!

 

Leave Your Shoes at the Door

 

Try finding a large basket or shoe organizer for everyone’s shoes! Then ask all family members and guests to remove their shoes at the front door. Our shoes carry so much dirt and mud in from the outside; not allowing them to touch the carpet does wonders for keeping it clean!

 

Learn the Tricks to Stain Removal

 

Next, learn a few tricks to stuff up your sleeve. You never know when you might need them. Accidents happen all of the time, and there are few things we can do to prevent them! Make sure your cleaning supplies cabinet is always stocked and ready! And remember: never rub a stain, only blot!

 

Vacuum Frequently

 

Vacuuming is the best, most simple thing you can do keep your carpet in good condition. Not only does it pick up dirt, dust, dander, pet hair and other unsightly things, but it also keeps your carpet from becoming matted down. In other words, vacuuming keeps your carpet clean, and looking like new!

 

Of course, there are several things you can do to keep your carpet in pristine condition. Another great idea is to call in the professionals every once in a while!

Steam Cleaning and Drying: We Cover the Basics

One of the questions we get asked most often is about drying time after steam cleaning. Since it’s more than a one-sentence answer, we figured we’d address some of those drying concerns you might have.

 

So, first and foremost; how does steam cleaning work?

Using only heat and water to thoroughly clean and sanitize a variety of surfaces, steam cleaning has become a popular, environmentally-friendly cleaning method. A floor wand shoots pressurized water onto the surface which is then immediately vacuumed into a holding tank. The high temperature of the water is what cleans and sanitizes at the same time. Also, by using only water, no additional chemicals are required to achieve a thorough and effective cleaning.

 

Now, let’s get to the drying part- after steam cleaning. Let’s say you steam clean your carpet floors, how does it dry? And how long does it take to dry?

 

Here’s the kicker: our answer only pertains to professional services as any machine you can rent or buy is going to work differently than the equipment we use. So, if done right, steam cleaning should not require the additional use of drying equipment. As a professional steam cleaner, we have a truck-mounted system (which is the preferable choice as it leads to shorter drying times). With a truck-mounted system, it is able to use higher pressure and suction leaving behind minimal humidity and moisture in your home surfaces or flooring. We caution homeowners against most at-home steam cleaners on the market just because it’s difficult to know what is left behind.
