Everyone enjoys having carpet in their home– the soft feeling of it on your feet and the homey feel it brings. But maintaining that carpet can take a lot of time and there are decisions to be made about the best way to clean it. Would it be better to have it steam cleaned or have it dry cleaned?

Steam cleaningSteam Cleaning

Steam Cleaning is a good method of cleaning your carpets. It cleans more than just the dirt on your carpet. It gets down deep killing any potential bugs such as fleas and allergens with heat. It provides the deep down clean that can make your carpet look just as good as you first got it. Although steaming cleaning is a great way to clean your carpets, there are a few disadvantages. It is a time consuming task and it takes a long time before you can stand on the carpet again. The heat from the steam can also potentially damage the fibers in the carpet and even the base of it. If there is too much water and chemicals from the machine it could also cause mildew in your carpet.  This is why we recommend having a trained technician from Kleen Rite to clean your carpets, as we have years of experience to get the job done right.

Dry Cleaning

Dry Cleaning your carpet involves placing dry chemicals on your carpet that help you break down any spill or dirt that has gotten onto your carpet and then have it vacuumed. This is a quick way to have your carpets cleaned and you can almost instantly start walking on your carpet after the process is finished. Since you’re placing chemicals in your carpet it can be harsh to breathe in and they can have a very potent smell that can last a while in your home.

Each Cleaning method has their own advantages and disadvantages, but we feel that steam cleaning is the best solution, and in the hands of a professional the chance of potential problems should be mitigated. Steam cleaning makes sure you get out all the dirt, stains, bugs and smells from your carpet.  Steam cleaning is also not toxic, making it safe for toddlers, small children and pets.

You want your carpet to last a long time and look its best and we at KleenRite can do that for you.
