Steam Carpet Cleaning

There are many varied methods of steam cleaning your carpets.  The correct term for steam cleaning of carpets and upholstery is in fact “hot water extraction”.  We will refer to it as steam cleaning as it most commonly known.

The most common form of steam cleaning is a 1 stage process, where a cleaner will bring to your home a portable machine, similar to the machine that you can rent from the local supermarket or hardware store.

This steam cleaning machine is filled with water and detergent and your carpet is cleaned without any prespray or agitation.

This “splash and dash” method cleans your carpet without a rinse process and unfortunately leaves detergent residue in your carpet which will promote rapid resoiling.  This steam cleaning method is over 20 years old and is not the preferred method by most carpet cleaners today, but unfortunately is still being used by a lot of bait and switch operators.

Drymaster DOES NOT use a 1 stage steam cleaning process.
