‘Hot water extraction’ is most commonly known as ‘carpet steam cleaning’ in Perth.
It is arguably the most effective carpet cleaning method, 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 are a ‘Woolsafe’ accredited wool carpet steam cleaning specialist capable of providing outstanding results. 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.
The quality of our workmanship that we provide is achieved through continuous education relevant to our industry, IICRC accreditation as well as thorough experience in properly applying the steam carpet cleaning process.
At Steam Or Dry we specialize in low moisture commercial carpet cleaning, a cleaning procedure that is most appropriate and cost effective in commercial and industrial settings. In cases where carpets are exposed to a lot of foot traffic and where stains are deemed more difficult to remove, spot and stain steam cleaning or a thorough steam cleaning procedure may be necessary.
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.
Our van-mounted carpet cleaning units are ideal for domestic carpet cleaning.
Portable carpet steam cleaning machines on the other hand are utilized for carpet steam cleaning in high-rise buildings.
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.
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.
