  • How does hot water extraction cleaning work?
    Hot water extraction, also commonly known as steam cleaning, is a highly effective method used in professional carpet and upholstery cleaning. Here's how it works: Pre-Inspection: Before the cleaning process begins, the technician will inspect the carpets or upholstery to identify any specific areas of concern, such as stains, spots, or heavily soiled areas. Pre-Treatment: The cleaning process often starts with the application of a pre-treatment solution to the carpet or upholstery. This solution helps to break down and loosen dirt, stains, and oils, making them easier to extract during the cleaning process. Hot Water and Cleaning Solution Application: The cleaning machine used in hot water extraction sprays a mixture of water and a cleaning solution onto the carpet or upholstery. Agitation: The technician may use a grooming brush or another agitation tool to work the cleaning solution into the fibers. This enhances the effectiveness of the cleaning process, especially in high-traffic areas. Extraction: The cleaning machine's powerful vacuum then extracts the hot water, cleaning solution, and loosened dirt from the carpet or upholstery. The extraction process is crucial in removing not only surface dirt but also deep-seated allergens, bacteria, and residues. Drying: After extraction, the carpet or upholstery needs time to dry. Proper ventilation and air circulation are essential to expedite the drying process.
