*IICRC: Why Steam Cleaning Carpet Is More Sanitary?
Steam cleaning carpet is becoming a leading alternative to the traditional shampoo method. As indicated by the EPA, the typical person can be found inside of their home or office space at least 90 percent of their time. Therefore it is imperative that harmful pollutants are removed regularly. While there are numerous techniques to utilize when removing dirt and allergens, they don’t always leave the same results. There are many benefits to the flooring and the occupants when hot water and steam are employed.
With as many as one hundred times more pollutants found indoors compared to outside, flooring fibers must be cleaned often. The usual vacuuming and spot cleaning is a necessary step in prolonging the life of the carpet, but such methods can only remove debris at the surface. Performing a deeper treatment approach will remove the dirt, pet hair, dust mites, and other debris that commonly work their way down further or are dug into the fibers themselves. While everyone tracks these unwanted contaminants indoors, kids and pets can greatly increase the volume of incoming pollutants. Over time a build-up of dust and grime can occur, so it is important to remove this build-up to preserve the flooring’s appearance and protect the health of those within the space.
Chemicals often utilized to brighten up all surfaces can negatively impact people and pets, especially those with allergies and other sensitivities. A key benefit to steam cleaning carpet is the minimization of chemicals present during the process. In addition, there is less chance of harmful residues contaminating the indoor environment. The air can remain healthy and clean for those within the space.
