Hot Water Extraction (Steam Cleaning)

Hot Water Extraction (Steam Cleaning)

Hot water extraction, often referred to as "steam cleaning," is the preferred method for carpet cleaning, and My Dad's Floor and Upholstery Cleaning excels in delivering this top-notch service. This method is not only recommended by most carpet manufacturers and fiber producers but is also classified as "deep cleaning," setting it apart from other methods considered as mere "light surface cleaning" due to their limited ability to eliminate deep-seated dirt. Additionally, these alternative methods tend to leave substantial amounts of cleaning agents behind in the carpet post-cleaning.

Hot water extraction stands out as the most effective carpet cleaning technique, and it's endorsed by the world's largest carpet manufacturer, Shaw Industries Group, which asserts that this method offers the most capable cleaning capabilities. Since 2001, My Dad's Floor and Upholstery Cleaning has adhered to the hot water extraction approach as per the manufacturer's recommendation.

The process of hot water extraction, often colloquially known as "steam cleaning," entails the use of a fine spray of hot water to dislodge dirt from the carpet fibers. A powerful vacuum immediately collects the dirt-laden water in front of the spray, with the term "steam" primarily reflecting the application of hot water. My Dad's Floor and Upholstery Cleaning employs this method by spraying a mixture of hot water and detergent onto the carpet pile and subsequently recovering both the water and soil via a robust vacuum system into a holding tank.

The hot water extraction process can be conducted using a truck-mounted unit situated outside the premises, with only the hose and floor tool being brought indoors. Alternatively, a portable system can be employed entirely within the home or office.

While it's true that you can attempt a similar process by renting a steam cleaning machine from a local hardware store, these machines typically lack the necessary strength (PSI) to extract all the moisture from your carpets after cleaning. The result is excessively wet carpets that may take days to dry and could potentially harbor residual cleaning solution, potentially damaging the carpet fibers. In contrast, My Dad's Floor and Upholstery Cleaning utilizes powerful, state-of-the-art carpet extraction machines, ensuring the removal of nearly all moisture, resulting in clean and rapidly drying carpets, typically within hours rather than days!
