Carpet Steam Cleaning uses extremely high heat and does an excellent job of eliminating bacteria, dust mites, fungus, and mould. High-pressure steam penetrates downward all the way to the base of the carpet’s fibres, removing any dirt, bacteria etc that is embedded there.
A powerful vacuum system sucks up 95% of the wetness that is left behind and your carpet is left feeling damp to the touch, but not soaking wet and under normal conditions will dry overnight.
Dust mites are microbes that live in carpets and fabrics and thrive on a diet of dead human skin cells. Initiating symptoms like itching and sneezing, they are among the top causes of asthma and allergies. When the circulation of air in the home is poor it can trigger the development of mould and mildew in carpets and rugs. If moisture gets trapped in carpets it can also give rise to mould and mildew growth. These micro-organism can make people sick with a variety of illnesses with symptoms including rhinitis (sinus infection), cough, allergies and asthma.
