Hot Water Extraction, commonly referred to as ‘Carpet Steam Cleaning’ is widely considered by many Perth carpet cleaners to be one of the most effective ways to look after carpets, be it for commercial or domestic needs. It is important to note however that not all carpet cleaners apply steam cleaning the same way, thus desired results may vary drastically.
We follow a strict guideline to ensure that all carpets are steam cleaned properly. What do we mean by ‘steam cleaned properly’ you might ask? Let’s take a closer look below.
As in professional rug cleaning, steam carpet cleaning in Perth can be carried out either with a truck mounted machine or with a portable steam cleaning unit. There are limitations as well advantages to both machines.
For example, a truck mounted unit is just that, a unit that is mounted in the back of a van or a small truck that can also be used for upholstery cleaning, tile and grout cleaning and in emergency situations where you have flooding in your home. The one and possibly only limitation to a ‘truck-mount’ is that the unit is not portable and therefore unable to be used in high rise buildings.
One major advantage to truck mounts is that they produce superior extraction during the steam cleaning process as opposed to portable units. Being able to extract as much water whilst cleaning a carpet is vital in order to achieve the best possible result. Van mounted units also produce their own heat which can be regulated by a cleaning technician. Pictured on this page is one of our Prochem Blazer XL machines, considered to be one of the best brands in the cleaning industry.
Portable steam cleaning machines are versatile, they can indeed be used in high rise buildings as the units themselves are not mounted to vans. Portable units however do not have the same extraction power as truck mount and that is possibly the only disadvantage to portable steam cleaning cleaners.
In order to achieve satisfying carpet cleaning results, it really comes down to how machinery is used and how the steam cleaning process is applied. Having a bigger more powerful machine does not necessarily mean that your carpets will be cleaned to the highest standard possible.
Regardless what the difference between the two machines might be, our goal at Steam Or Dry is straightforward! Our priority is to professionally steam clean all carpets in a cost effective way in line with Woolsafe and Australian standards.
The quality of our workmanship is achieved through continuous education relevant to our industry, IICRC accreditation as well as thorough experience in properly applying the steam carpet cleaning process.
Not all cleaning professionals clean the same way nor is the equipment and cleaning agents used in the process of steam cleaning. Carpet steam cleaning has many benefits if it is applied properly.
Carpet steam cleaning disadvantages usually arise if the cleaning procedure is not applied properly. One major disadvantage is that not all carpet steam cleaning technicians extract carpets properly. Inadequate extraction with a wand tool during the cleaning process may cause the following issues.
Arguably the best alternative to professional steam cleaning is the low moisture treatment. The cleaning process is commonly referred to as ‘Low Moisture Carpet Cleaning’. It is an extremely effective, pet safe and non-toxic cleaning method suitable for most carpets.
Our portable low moisture machine is quiet and simple to operate, it’s round pad attached to the bottom of the machine massages your carpet in a rotary manner, the encapsulation solution is slowly released into the cleaning pad as necessary. The simple yet very effective cleaning process separates, encapsulates and crystallizes dirt and oils from carpet fibre. Low moisture carpet care is a fantastic way to eliminate those unwanted stains in rental apartments or homes.
Unlike low moisture or steam carpet cleaning, host dry carpet care does not require water during the cleaning process. HOST dry cleaning is recommended for carpets and rugs that are prone to browning.
Our advanced ‘Scrub & Stream Cleaning’ process is the ideal cleaning application for heavily soiled carpet fibre and for carpets that are exposed to heavy foot traffic. A specialized cleaning procedure that is designed to revive neglected carpets. The cleaning process involves a combination of stain removal, rotary agitation as well as hot water extraction.
This particular carpet cleaning procedure is highly recommended where carpet wicking is a possibility post the cleaning process. Advanced carpet stain removal steps may be necessary, this is usually addressed at the time of carpet inspection. If you feel that you carpets are in a poor state or if you are simply in need of some advice, we would be more than happy to have a chat with you. Steam Or Dry strongly recommends that professional advice is sought before you consider replacing your carpet. Bringing old carpets back to life is one of our specialties.

A number of factors can be taken in consideration in order to prolong the life of your wool carpet. One of them is regular vacuuming and more importantly, appropriate, regular professional carpet cleaning. Zoran, owner and primary technician at Steam Or Dry is a ‘Woolsafe’ accredited specialist.
Taking care of wool carpets requires extra effort during the cleaning process in order to achieve desired and long lasting results. Being educated on the topic of wool carpet care and a solid amount of hands-on experience plays a vital part in maintaining natural carpets. Inappropriate cleaning methods as well as inadequate water extraction could potentially lead to costly mistakes such as cellulosic browning.
Some spots and stains on woolen carpets are easy to rectify, some on the other hand need a professionals touch. More information on the topic of wool carpet maintenance and stain removal can be given at the time of inspection.
We do not apply guess work when it comes to professional carpet care. Whether a particular carpet is constructed from nylon, polypropylene or natural carpet fibre, it is vital to apply the correct cleaning method. Satisfactory results also depend on correct stain identification as well as appropriate application of professional, purpose made spot and stain cleaning agents. Rest assured that our 7 step carpet care process is applied every time.
Most people are not aware that general dirt trapped within carpet fibres can be abrasive, which over time cuts and wears out carpet every time somebody walks on it.
