Hot Water what?!?

Never heard of the hot water extraction method of carpet and tile cleaning? That’s not surprising!! There are a lot of carpet & tile cleaning methods out there called all sorts of names.  

To be honest, it doesn’t matter what you call it. What you need to know as a homeowner is that hot water extraction is by far the best carpet & tile cleaning method on the market.

Don’t Take Our Word For It

If you have doubts, just look to the carpet industry itself for clues to which method is the best. There’s a reason that almost every major carpet manufacturer recommends (and more increasingly requires for warranty reasons) that you use hot water extraction to maintain the cleanliness of your home carpeting. And there is also a reason why Deep South Floor Care uses this method of carpet cleaning. When choosing hot water extraction as their cleaning method, this assures that they are doing a deep, restorative cleanse back to like-new conditions.

How it Works

In truth, there is little or no steam involved as a primary cleaning material. The term “steam cleaning” is really misused when it comes to describing how hot water extraction works. Instead, hot water and cleaning agents are applied by hand sprayers into your carpet pile or onto the surface of your tile, where they loosen up dirt, soil, and grime. In almost the same motion a high-powered vacuum attached to the appropriate tool removes the hot water and all the dirt and stains in your carpet and on your tile along with it.

Bigger is better

As you shop around for cleaners to clean your carpet, keep in mind that there are a variety of systems available to you as a homeowner to choose from. Portable household units are popular and can be rented at most grocery or hardware stores. They do a decent job of cleaning your carpets, and are cheaper than hiring a professional, but aren’t as efficient as more powerful truck mounted units or the portable cleaning machines that the professionals use. Deep South Floor Care is a testament to the superiority of this second type of set-up with their fleet of familiar cleaning vans. Truck-mounted units and our professional portable cleaning machines inject the water and cleaning agents into your carpet at a much higher pressure, meaning  they clean deeper than other systems. Also, their vacuum systems for removing the water and dirt are  superior, doing a better job of removing both moisture and cleaning agents from your carpet pile. All this adds up to cleaner carpets and less frequent cleanings when it’s all said and done.

When to call Deep South

This is where most homeowners make their biggest mistake when it comes to carpet and tile maintenance.  It’s common practice to wait several years until your carpet or tile barely resembles the original product before you call in the big dogs. If you want to maintain clean carpets and tile, and extend the life of your flooring, you really ought to bring in a professional carpet and tile cleaner on an annual basis for carpet and yearly basis for tile. The daily beating your flooring takes includes tracked in dirt, spills and stains, pet traffic, and even the presence of pest infestations such as fleas and mites. The more often you clean with hot water extraction, the less you’ll have to worry about the presence of all these things as you watch your family spend time on your well maintained, and beautifully clean flooring.
