Eliminating dirt and allergens should be your number one priority at home. Furthermore, if you have a pet or family member who is allergic to dirt, making sure that your home is clean is paramount to ensuring that their health is not jeopardised. Whereas there are several ways to get rid of dirt and allergens around the house, nothing does it best like a steam cleaner.
Sure, a vacuum cleaner could clean your carpet. However, you need to remember that vacuum cleaners don’t do enough. What about the deeply embedded dirt in your carpet that the vacuum cleaner can’t get rid of?
That’s a job that hot water and steam can do very well.
Some estimates claim that there are as many as 100 times more pollutants indoors than outdoors
If these studies are anything to go by, then vacuuming and spot cleaning won’t be enough. In this case, vacuuming would serve to prolong the life of the carpet by removing debris on the surface.
Still, this does not make your carpet or fabric surfaces free from germs. In fact, to make sure that your home is totally free from these harmful elements, you’d need to employ a deeper treatment approach that aims to get rid of dirt, dust mite, pet hair, or other debris that usually work their way into the fibre.
Also, while adults track these contaminants indoors, kids and pets greatly increase the frequency with which these dirt elements come into the house. Over time, these dirt elements can build up into dust and grime.
And when this happens, your floor starts to change its colour, plus it could pose some serious health hazards to your family members. What this means is that you could soon be hiring home cleaning professionals to clean your floor tiles at an added cost — something that you could have easily prevented if you embraced the idea of steaming cleaning.
Steam cleaners shoot hot water into the fibres of the carpet
Germs, dust mites, dirt, bacteria, and other toxins can’t stand hot water jets. Also, when working with a steam cleaner, the level of moisture can be controlled depending on the surface that is being cleaned. So this means that you can use it on some surfaces not limited to carpets only.
Any excess water and dislodged dirt are then eliminated through the suction power of the device. The good thing with this type of cleaning is that it achieves a certain depth of cleaning that allergens can’t survive. In return, you get a cleaner-looking and long lasting carpet and floor as well.
Unlike what happens when you use brighteners, steam cleaning doesn’t bring about any yellowing or discolouring. Another benefit is that steam cleaning encourages shorter drying times compared to some water-based shampoos that don’t necessarily dry as quickly. Finally, chances that re-soiling will occur after cleaning is almost nil when the surface is thoroughly cleaned and dried.
Steam cleaning beats other methods of cleaning hands down. Depending on the surface you’re cleaning, the efficacy of this technique can prove itself over other methods you’ve been using before. Therefore, if you’re planning to buy a cleaning device, perhaps you could consider purchasing a steam cleaner instead.
