The Benefits of Using a Steam Cleaner

One of the best ways to keep your home looking clean and fresh is to pay special attention to your floors. Regardless of whether you have carpet, tiles or timber floorboards, a clean floor will always lift the overall look and feel of your home.

There’s no doubt that carpets in particular take a lot of wear and tear, especially if you’ve got small children and pets in the home. Even if you’re diligent about regular vacuuming, floor carpets can easily become discoloured, stained and soiled over time.

Many people rely on commercial cleaning products to clean their carpets, with a range of powders, sprays and spot cleaners sold in supermarkets and stores. However, these commercial sprays and liquids can contain harsh chemical ingredients that are toxic to your family, as well as the planet. And often don’t live up to their promise!

Instead of wasting your money on expensive spot cleaners that don’t deliver, why not have a team of professional cleaners come over and take the stress out of carpet cleaning? Professional steam cleaning will bring your carpets and rugs back to life in a matter of hours, as well as being the more efficient and environmentally-friendly cleaning alternative.

Here’s a closer look at some of the benefits of professional steam cleaning for your home.

Non-Toxic and Chemical-Free Cleaning

Did you know that steam cleaning only uses the power of heat and water to deeply clean carpets? This means that there’s no nasty chemicals being used. No bleach, ammonia, or other dangerous toxins found in many commercial cleaning products.

Instead, steam cleaners are designed to heat up water to a very high temperature. After the water has been heated up, the steam will be applied to the surface of the carpet. Once it has cooled, the steam will turn into water, which will then be sucked up – along with any allergens, bacteria, stains and dirt that are in the carpet.

With steam cleaning, your home will be a much safer environment for your family, especially little kids and pets – because let’s face it, they often spend a lot of time on the floor and carpet!

Great for Keeping Allergies in Check

If you, or someone in your household, regularly suffers from allergies, steam cleaning could be a life-changer.

This cleaning technique is great for anyone who experiences asthma or allergy-like symptoms, which are often exacerbated by the chemicals found in many commercial cleaning products.

As we said, steam cleaning uses only water and heat to create an all-natural steam that’s perfectly safe for your health. And removes allergens, pet dander, dirt and dust you’re your carpets and home.

A Deeper, More Hygienic Clean

Even though it’s chemical-free, steam cleaning kills 99.99% of bacteria in your carpets.

We bring dirt and bacteria into the home on a daily basis, especially on our shoes (and the paws of our pets). Over time, this bacteria and dirt will start to gather in the fibres of carpets, padding and backing.

Using carpet shampoos, powders or sprays might help you get rid of surface spots or stains, but they won’t penetrate into your carpets to remove mould, dust mites or bacteria. Steam cleaning is the best way to deeply clean and lift these substances from carpets.
