Perfection Carpet Cleaners Steam Cleaning ~ Serving Peabody, MA Since 2009
Do you wonder what’s lurking deep in the fibers of your carpet?
Your kids bring germs home from school, as well as drag in mud with their wet sneakers.
And your pets walk across your carpets with their dirty paws. Of course, they need to roll around to relieve that itch on their backs—leaving behind dander, hair, and possibly, fleas.
Even if you don’t have children coming home from school or pets running around the house on a rainy day, you may still have pathogens, such as E. coli and salmonella, hiding in your carpet.
What can you do?
In this blog post, you’ll learn why professional steam cleaning is the best solution to getting your carpets clean and sanitized to keep you and your loved ones healthy throughout the entire winter.
How Does Steam Cleaning Work?
When your Peabody, MA professional carpet cleaner uses his steam cleaner on your carpets, the machine releases hot water molecules that go directly into your carpet’s fibers.
The hot molecules lift up dirt, germs and other debris. Plus, these hot molecules kill salmonella and E. coli on contact.
Steam carpet cleaning will also pull out allergens such as dust mites, including their feces that trigger allergic reactions.
Also, when your family and pets walk on your carpets after being outside in the rain or snow, they’re leaving moisture behind. This moisture, combined with your home’s heating, causes mold and mildew to form inside your carpets.
And as you know, mold and mildew can trigger allergy symptoms such as sneezing and coughing.
Steam cleaning removes mold and mildew. Plus, your carpet cleaner will use commercial drying tools that quickly remove excess moisture from your carpets so mold and mildew won’t redevelop.
Two Extra Benefits to Professional Carpet Steam Cleaning
In addition to removing harmful pathogens, mold and mildew, steam cleaning your carpets provides a healthier indoor environment within your home. Steam carpet cleaning doesn’t use any chemicals—just water—to clean.
So, here are two additional benefits to carpet cleaning with steam:
- Steam cleaning is kinder to the environment than traditional carpet cleaning methods. Why? With steam cleaning, you’re only using water, and with traditional carpet cleaning, you’re using more chemicals that get dumped down the drain after use.
- You, your family and your pets won’t be breathing in harmful chemicals when you hire a carpet cleaner to steam clean your carpets. Traditional carpet cleaning leaves potentially harmful toxins in the carpet and the air. Some reactions to carpet cleaning shampoos include:
- Asthma attacks
- Cough and congestion
- Nausea and fatigue
- Nose, eye and lung irritations
- Your carpet will look new and will last longer: You can bring back the original beauty of your carpet when you hire a professional carpet cleaner who uses steam. Plus, your carpet lasts longer when you use steam over traditional methods.
In closing, steam cleaning your carpets is healthier for you, your family as well as the environment. You get a thorough clean as well as a harmless disinfectant by using hot water.
So say goodbye to traditional carpet cleaners and get your carpets sanitized with steam cleaning. You can rest assured that all dirt, allergens, mold and mildew are gone as well as harmful pathogens, such as E. coli and salmonella.
