What makes steam cleaning so special? The science behind it is fairly straightforward. You may have noticed that when you vacuum, no matter how often you vacuum, some dirt and grime just won't go away. That's because dirt actually sticks to the carpet fibers, forming a sort of adhesive bond with those fibers. Over time, no matter how much you vacuum, the dirt sinks deeper and deeper into the fibers, holding on with that adhesive action. In addition, liquid stains are often absorbed into the fiber of the carpet as well and the longer they stay, the more deeply they come ingrained into the carpet. The process known as "steam cleaning" addresses both problems, removing stuck-on dirt as well as many stubborn stains. When the term "steam cleaning" is used in relation to carpet cleaning, home owners would likely assume that actual steam is used in the process.
This, however, is not the case. Steam cleaning actually utilizes very hot water that is forced deep down into the carpet then extracted by a powerful vacuum. The hot water actually melts the adhesive which binds dirt and grim to the carpet fibers and when the water is extracted, the dirt goes along for the ride. In addition, the hot water penetrates deep into the fibers of the carpet, loosening and lifting stains from the inside out. What you're left with is a carpet that not only looks clean, but is deep-down clean!
Other Lynnwood carpet cleaners use a detergent solution during their cleaning process. However, detergents are actually designed to attract dirt; that is why when detergent is placed in a washer with clothes, the dirt is pulled from the clothes into the water. In most cases, if detergent is used on carpets, there will be residual amounts left behind. These trace amounts left in the fiber of your carpets can actually attract dirt, so that while your carpets may initially look clean, they will quickly become even dirtier than they were before the cleaning! In addition, the residue left behind by some types of harsh detergents can be detrimental to kids, pets, and anyone else coming in contact with the carpet.Be sure to ask what method your Lynnwood carpet cleaners use!
