According to Embassy Cleaners, “The main difference between steam cleaning and hot water extraction is the temperature used during the process. Steam cleaning requires heating water to a high enough temperature to convert it from liquid to gas. Hot water extraction requires water hot enough to clean effectively and deeply but not hot enough that it converts to steam.” Call Triple D’s Carpet Cleaning today at 910-273-3661. We provide both hot water extraction and steam cleaning.

According to Cheryl Simmons, “Filtration soiling occurs as a result of air being forced into the room or space at a higher rate than it can escape from the same area, via the ventilation system. The air then seeks alternative escape routes, which usually end up being the gap between the carpet and the wall trim and under closed doors.” Simmons also states that “This soiling does not occur as a result of insufficient vacuuming or improper vacuuming techniques. It is a problem that can occur in the cleanest of homes and is not considered a reflection of housekeeping abilities.”

Learn the proper methods and usage rate of your chemicals to minimize the time and removal effort of those chemicals.” The fibers in your carpet are absorbent and will retain any detergent during the cleaning process. Detergent is designed to collect dirt and if left in the carpet then will it continue to attract dirt. Avoid this problem call the professionals.
