Do You Need to Rent Drying Equipment?

Restoration Drying Equipment

 

Steam cleaning has become a popular, environmentally-friendly cleaning method. It uses only heat and water to thoroughly clean and sanitize a variety of surfaces, including flooring, countertops, drapery, furniture, even pet beds and mattresses.  

 

How does steam cleaning work?

 

Steam cleaning uses water heated past the boiling point to clean dirt, debris, and contaminants, including bacteria, mold, and allergens. 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.

 

Does steam cleaning require separate drying equipment?

 

If done right, steam cleaning does not require the additional use of drying equipment. The water is hot enough to evaporate quickly, and efficient steam-cleaning equipment vacuums up excess water as you clean. Most professional steam-cleaners have a truck-mounted system, which is the preferable choice for shorter drying times. A truck-mounted system is able to use higher pressure and hotter temperatures, and it exhausts all the air and humidity from your home, leading to faster drying times.    

 

Buyer—and renter—beware.

 

The steam cleaners that you can buy or rent yourself often do not have enough suction power to suck up the excess water during the steam cleaning process. Many of the machines for rent are much older, too. Excess water risks the development of mildew. This is particularly a concern with certain types of flooring, such as carpet, where mildew growth could occur out of sight.
