Hot water extraction is the most effective method of carpet cleaning. Although DIY, rental and other cleaners may make big claims, they simply can’t deliver the same level of clean as hot water extraction. In addition to being significantly more effective than other forms of carpet cleaning, hot water extraction is also a safer option. Many Omaha homeowners don’t realize how badly DIY cleaners can damage carpet until it’s too late.
The Basics of Hot Water Extraction
Hot water extraction is often mistakenly referred to as carpet steam cleaning. The reason that steam cleaning isn’t an accurate label for hot water extraction is the water used doesn’t get hot enough to turn into steam. Instead, it’s heated up to the temperature that’s most effective for both deeply cleaning and properly rinsing carpet. The problem with steam is once water reaches that temperature and transforms into a gas, it’s no longer useful for the rinsing phase of carpet cleaning.
One of the reasons that manufacturers usually recommend hot water extraction as their suggested method of carpet cleaning is it’s a technique that won’t cause any shrinkage. Another benefit of hot water extraction is how effective it is at removing stains. This ability is in direct contrast to steam cleaning, which can actually cause stains to be permanently set into carpet.
When homeowners contact Sharp Carpet & Air Duct Cleaning, their most common concern is how long it’s going to take their carpets to dry after being cleaned. That’s why they’re quite pleasantly surprised when we inform them that carpet cleaned via hot water extraction can dry in as little as a few hours.
Carpet Cleaning Done Right
As mentioned in the section above, opting for steam cleaning can lead to problems like shrinkage or stains being locked into carpet. Turning to a DIY method like renting a steam cleaning machine also presents the risk of accidentally soaking carpets. The worst case scenario is carpets get soaked to the point where they don’t dry in a timely manner and end up leading to mold growth.
The key to avoiding everything from shrinkage to carpet soaking to excess detergent residue is to enlist the help of knowledgeable professionals. The good news is the Sharp Carpet & Air Duct Cleaning team has all the experience, knowledge and resources to make the process of cleaning your Omaha home’s carpets a success.
