How does Hot Water Extraction - Steam Carpet Cleaning work?
Suitable for synthetics/mixed (microfibre, man-made, polyester) and woollen fibre
Step 1: Pretreating the item
In this method, we use more advanced version of the regular steam cleaning. Before the actual carpet cleaning procedure takes place, the technician will vacuum clean the piece to remove that first layer of loose dust. Then, he will examine the stains (if any) and choose the appropriate detergent for each. Spilled drinks, greasy food splatters, and so on – whatever it is, it will be dealt with accordingly. However, keep in mind there are stains that permanently damage the fabric and they are impossible to clean. If our methods can’t clean them, nothing will.
Step 2: Main cleaning procedure
This is the most efficient and longer-lasting carpet cleaning method on the market. It brings even the most blemished and heavily-soiled textile floor coverings back to life. Here is how the steam carpet cleaning works:
- The technician uses a professional machine to deep clean every inch of the carpet.
- The nozzle ejects pressurised water mixed with a detergent. This easily dislodges all accumulated grime and dust.
- At the same time, a powerful suction attachment is removing all the excess moisture from the piece (along with the loosened dirt).
- This way, your carpet is being cleaned and dried at the same time, with no risk of damage – nearly 95% of the moisture is removed almost simultaneously.
NOTE: Fantastic Services does not hold any responsibility for damage that might occur on your carpeting after professional cleaning in case you have attempted to remove existing stains on your own by using unknown to us detergents of your own choosing.
Step 3: Scotchgard stain protection - recommended for high traffic areas
To protect your freshly cleaned items and prolong their life, your technician can use the highly effective stain repellent on them. The repellent is applied evenly on the pile of each individual item and provide reliable protection against all kinds of stains by not allowing them to settle on your rug's surface. This way, your items will remain fresh much longer and they will be a lot easier to clean the next time.
Step 4: Short drying time
After hot water extraction, the textile floor covering is slightly damp and needs 3 to 6 hours to air-dry on its own. The carpet cleaner will also bring an air-mover for free for the duration of the service. It will be situated near the treated floor coverings. This will significantly speed up the drying process (with a few hours) by increasing the airflow.
