Four Tips for Steam Cleaning Your Carpet

By Althea Warburton

Steam cleaning has many advantages over using chemical solutions when it comes to cleaning your carpet. Surface cleaners leave potentially toxic residue in your carpets, and don't provide the deep-down clean that a proper steam cleaning can offer. 

While chemical solutions are generally effective in removing most surface stains, steam cleaning is the only method known to get deep down in your carpet to remove almost all traces of dirt and bacteria. This is because steam cleaning methods penetrate your carpet to its deepest layer. This results in spotless, fresh-smelling carpets that are free of odor and allergens. Below are some tips to consider when steam cleaning your carpet.

Remove Pet Stains

Before steam cleaning your carpet, you'll need to remove any stains from pet urine. The hot water that steam cleaners use to lift stains can bond pet urine to your carpet's fabric, making it impossible to remove. Use a specially formulated pet stain remover to lift these stains before proceeding with steam.

Look for Non-Toxic Cleaning Solutions

If you have children, allergies, or pets, search for non-toxic products to use in your steam cleaner. Many companies provide cleaning solutions that are child-safe and biodegradable.

They are able to clean, disinfect, and kill insects, all without the use of harsh chemicals. As a bonus, they usually come equipped with several attachments that can be used to clean other surfaces in the house. Vapor steam cleaners save you money in household products and keep your home environmentally friendly, all at the same time.
