WHAT IS CARPET STEAM CLEANING?
Also called hot water extraction, carpet steam cleaning is a method by which equipment heats water to 220 degrees Fahrenheit, forces the water out at high pressure, and then extracts the water along with any dirt that was present. Alamo Steam Team specializes in this service to clean carpets, mattresses, tile and grout, and many other household surfaces.
CARPET STEAM CLEANING
When it comes to cleaning carpets, nothing can remove dirt and grime like superheated water and steam. The hot water reacts with the cleaning solutions to ensure maximum particle and oil removal. Getting the job done requires the right equipment and the proper training.
Carpets are not one size fits all and neither are the people who live on them. Our experienced technicians will assess whether the fibers are synthetic or natural, if you have any major traffic areas that need additional treatment, and discuss stain problems and how we can eliminate them for you. Prior to beginning work we will make recommendations that will ensure not only a clean carpet when we leave, but a carpet that stays cleaner between professional steam carpet cleanings.
Our process includes several tried and true steps to ensure your cleaning experience is thorough.
1. COMPLETE INSPECTION OF YOUR CARPET AND CONSULTATION
This includes identifying the fiber of the carpet, the age, and documenting any damage or significant spots or stains. We discuss any concerns or questions you may have prior to cleaning.
2. DRY SOIL EXTRACTION, OR, PRE-VACUUMING
Did you know that over 90 percent of the dirt present in your carpet consists of dry, loose particles? Our professional technicians start the cleaning process by thoroughly vacuuming your carpets. We use commercial grade equipment to remove dry soil prior to hot water extraction.
3. SPECIALIZED SPOT TREATMENT
Many spots and stains, especially pet stains, require extra effort to remove. Our technicians will take the added time necessary to remove heavy grime and all types of spots. We use specialized detergents and proven best practices, and will discuss your options for fixing any severe problems such as dye stains or color loss.
4. PRE-SPRAY TREATMENT
Once we complete the preparation work, your technicians will then apply the correct amount of a powerful, non-toxic and eco-friendly detergent specifically formulated to your type of carpet and level of soil. This detergent starts working immediately to break down soil and trapped dirt.
5. HOT WATER EXTRACTION
Alamo Steam Team uses industry standard, high-powered, truck mounted carpet cleaning machines to provide the ultimate carpet steam cleaning experience. During the hot water extraction phase, remaining soil and grease is flushed out using 220 degree water at very high pressures. Remember, if you don’t see steam, it’s not clean.
This hot water solution is then quickly extracted using powerful wet vacuum technology. Our powerful equipment fully extracts the hot water from your carpets. This helps extend the life of your carpet by keeping your carpet pad from breaking down as well.
6. EXPEDITED DRYING
The faster your carpets dry, the faster you can get back to living your life. To speed up the drying time, we’ll even set up professional drying equipment or do additional drying passes throughout your home as we clean. This means when you choose the Alamo Steam Team, your carpets will dry at least twice as fast!
7. PILE SETTING
This step is more important for high pile carpets and not necessary for every type of rug. After cleaning, if you request, our technicians will fluff rake your carpet to raise and set the pile. This procedure erases any signs of cleaning and ensures your carpet looks its absolute brightest and best!
ADDITIONAL CARPET CLEANING SERVICES
In addition to our unique cleaning process we offer a variety of premium services to fit your needs and budget.
After the area beneath the furniture is cleaned, all pieces are placed on foam blocks or plastic tabs to protect both carpet and furniture. This helps extend the longevity of both your carpet and your furniture, to keep your home looking and feeling newer longer. You’ll feel and appreciate the difference instantly!
PET AND URINE ODOR TREATMENT
Pet and urine stains and odors present a special challenge, and not all companies are created equal when it comes to managing this issue. Our San Antonio carpet cleaners apply localized, targeted, pad-level injections of high-powered, antimicrobial deodorizers to treat tough pet odors, urine, and other organic material.
You can elect to have our technicians hand-clean the baseboards in all cleaned areas. If you select furniture moving the baseboards and HVAC vents behind the furniture will also be cleaned.
