Carpet Steam Cleaning - Harpenden AL5 by Prolux Carpet Cleaning North London
Steam cleaning is a deep cleaning process that derives the maximum benefit from the use of different chemicals, a high-pressure jet of hot water, and steam to eliminate dirt from different materials and surfaces. Different types of cleaners are used for the job, depending on the specific application.
Rug and Carpet Hot Water Vapor Treatment AL5
When it comes to cleaning carpets, cleaning with hot water vapors is the most popular and universal method as of now. It is safe, effective and gentle and appropriate for many carpets and fibers. The hot temperature and the moisture help dissolve grime grounded into the fibers of the carpet. Carpet steam cleaning machines use a solution of hot water and a certain type of carpet cleaning agent. The mixture is sent through high-pressure jets allowing the vaporized water to penetrate the yarns of the rug and to slacken the dirt. As the cleaning solution dislodges the dirt, the cleaner uses a strong vacuum to retrieve the now unclean water and excess detergent. The final result is a rug that is completely clean and is going to dry in a couple of hours in most climates.
Steam carpet cleaning with pure water without detergents is recommended for recently purchased rugs to clean and purify before putting them into use. One fringe benefit - the heat kills mite's eggs and larvae hidden in the fabric. Cleaning carpets with hot water vapors eliminates bad stale odors set in as well.
Drapes, Curtains and Canopies Cleaning - Harpenden - London
Steam cleaning works very well for cleaning interior textiles. Curtains and draperies fabrics absorb dirt and they get easily soiled, and saturated with disagreeable fumes and smells. In many situations steam cleaning is the best and the most appropriate solution.
Thick bulky materials, for example, could not be washed in the laundry machine at home in Harpenden - it does not have enough capacity for this job. If they are put through the wash, it is highly possible to get streaked soiled curtains with many creases and wrinkles. And, there is always the risk of having the fabric color faded or leaked. Simply put - ruined curtains.
Gentle materials like wool or silk will not withstand wet wash. It is always a good idea to keep the label with fabric care instructions. "Dry Clean Only" means just that - dry clean only. Save yourself the disaster of seeing the last day of your expensive drapes. Hire a professional cleaner to do the job right. Steam cleaning is safe, effective and efficient way to clean most materials.
Extra bonus of cleaning curtains and window treatments with steam is the fact that all work is done by our Harpenden teams with portable machines without taking off the curtains from the cornices. This saves a lot of time and frustration.
Only a suggestion - we highly recommend cleaning of newly purchased curtains with heated water vapor. Just think about this - chances are the fabric they are made of spent some time lying around in dusty warehouses and stores. A complete cleaning with purified water only, no detergents, is going to be of a great benefit. For the health of your household, have them cleaned and sanitized upon installation.
