Sometimes incorrectly referred to as “steam cleaning” (no steam is actually used), hot water extraction involves the use of a stream of highly heated water to force dirt and soil out of the carpet while a vacuum whisks it away. First, excess soil is removed with a dry vacuum. Next, a pressurized, heated, water-based cleaning solution is injected into the carpet. As the injected solution pushes dirt to the surface of the carpet, it is removed by a wet vacuum.
So is hot water extraction the best choice for your carpet? Here’s what you need to know about this popular carpet cleaning method.
Most major carpet manufacturers recommend hot water extraction as the most effective way to clean their carpets. And for some types of carpet, hot water extraction is the only safe method. Unless you’re sure that your carpet will not be damaged by alternate methods, opt for hot water extraction – better safe than sorry!
Hot water extraction offers a much deeper clean than its alternatives, namely shampooing and dry cleaning, which only provide a surface clean. Hot water extraction is also much more effective at removing stains and odors than surface cleaners.
Other carpet cleaning methods—those that involve the use of shampoo, a dry cleaning solution or powder—can leave behind large amounts of residue. When performed properly, hot water extraction leaves your carpets virtually residue-free.
When performed using natural, non-toxic cleaning solutions, hot water extraction can be an eco-friendly approach to carpet cleaning. Many alternative cleaning methods rely on harsh chemicals that can pose health risks for people and pets. Thanks to the power of highly-heated water, gentler solutions are sufficient to produce a satisfactory result.
