Carpet Steam Cleaning Tips By AAA Carpet & Upholstery
Carpet steam cleaning is a highly effective method for deep cleaning and maintaining your carpet for a very long time. Follow our top 12 suggested carpet steam cleaning tips to ensure you get the best results...
Move all of the furniture out of the way: Clear the area you plan to steam clean by moving furniture and any obstacles out of the way. This ensures that you can properly clean every area of the carpet.
Vacuum before you steam clean your carpet: Before you begin, thoroughly vacuum the carpet to remove dust, loose dirt, debris, etc. This will prevent the steam cleaner from getting clogged up and deliver the best result.
Choose the right steam cleaning equipment: Invest in a quality carpet steam cleaner or consider renting one from a reputable source. The smaller and more affordable solutions aren't nearly as effective.
Choose an effective cleaning solution: Use a carpet cleaning solution that is reputable and has good reviews. Also use a solution that is compatible with your machine. Follow manufacturer's guidelines for mixing and dilution.
Pre-treat any stains you find: Before you begin cleaning, spot-clean any stains and high traffic areas. Apply solution and allow it to sit for several minutes. This allows it to break down stains and dirt.
Be sure to use hot water: Ensure the water in your steam cleaning equipment is hot but not boiling. Hot water will effectively help break down grime and dirt.
Do not use too much water and over-wet: Avoid over saturating the carpet with excessive water. This can lead to mildew, mold, bad smells, etc. Use the correct amount of water according to your machine's instructions.
Have proper ventilation for the area: Open windows and doors during and after cleaning to help with drying and to remove any residual odors. If you live in a cold climate and cannot do this, turn the heat up several additional degrees for a short time to help with drying.
Follow proper procedures and techniques: Slowly and methodically move the steam cleaner over the carpeting. Try to overlap each pass to ensure even carpet cleaning and do not rush the process.
Dry the carpet thoroughly: Be certain that the carpet is completely dry before walking on it or placing furniture back on it. To speed up the drying process, you can open windows or doors, use fans, dehumidifiers, or temporarily turn up the heating thermostat.
Regularly steam clean your carpets: Regular maintenance to your carpets will prevent buildup of grime, dirt, stains, etc. This will also extend the life of your carpets.
Consider a professional cleaning service: If you don't want the hassle of renting or owning equipment and doing the manual labor, consider hiring a professional carpet cleaning service.
