You’ve spent thousands of dollars on your home's carpets. They may look clean. You might even vacuum them every day, but you won't be able to remove all the fine dirt, pollen, bacteria, dust mite waste and spores that settle down in the fibers. This dirt is a feast for dust mites, wearing away at the fibers of your carpet.
To protect your investment, steam cleaning your carpets every 12 to 18 months is recommended (depending on the color of the carpet and the amount of foot traffic in your home).
Steam cleaning, or "hot water extraction," is the cleaning method nearly all carpet manufacturers and carpet fiber producers recommend. This process involves warm detergent first being sprayed on spots and spills and then injected into the pile with a high-pressure jet spray. A vacuum then sucks up the water and dirt. This is the only method classified as "deep cleaning.”
