There might be many ways in which you can clean carpets or rugs or any other material that requires some special care – but none will be as expedient and efficient as steam cleaning. It’s not that other methods might not work; it’s just that when it comes to speed, cleanliness, and thoroughness (not to mention hygiene), they don’t work as well.

Here’s why: you don’t need harsh chemicals, you not only clean all the dirt, but also eliminate bacteria, and it’s perfectly ecologically-sound. It’s not hard to imagine why it’s very trendy and why its popularity is growing. Here are the basics on steam cleaning and its benefits: everything you need to know.


How it works

A steam cleaner is an apparatus that holds water and, thanks to an internal boiler or electric valve, heats up this water and expels it. The machine looks a bit like a traditional vacuum cleaner – but instead of sucking up objects, it ejects steam at 200 degrees out of its end. The steam that is pushed onto the cleaning area loosens grime, kills bacteria, and sanitizes, as confirmed by carpet cleaning New York experts from NYC Steam Cleaning.


The benefits

There are many advantages to cleaning with steam, but here are some of the most important ones:

  • Cleans great. Unlike cold water (or even hot water, which is harder to handle), steam has the ability to break down dirt and grime; the particles tend to loosen and are therefore much easier to remove and collect.


  • Best for your health. There is no need to use any chemicals or abrasive materials when you clean via steam – you don’t need to use a detergent that might harm you, your children, or your pets.


  • Kills bacteria and pests. Bacteria, mold, and other pests such as fleas, ticks, and other forms of insects immediately die when they get into contact with the hot steam (which is water heated up to 200 degrees F), immediately sterilizing and sanitizing your area.


  • Eco-friendly. There is no need for any harsh chemicals or other products that might harm the environment. Add to this the reduced costs, and you create a lower carbon footprint as well.


  • It’s a money-saver. Less work and fewer products mean savings.


Of course, it’s important to find the right steam cleaner – one that is not only right for your budget, but one that does the job it promises to do, and one that is durable (in other words, gives you great results for the minimum of effort and for the longest possible time). But if you want to be assured of a completely thorough, professional job, you can always rely on steam cleaning specialists to do it all for you.
