7 Step Steam Cleaning Process Explained

OVER TIME THINGS GET GROUND IN, EVEN WITH DILIGENT CLEANING!  ALSO, FIBERS IN CARPETS AND UPHOLSTERY NEED THE INTENSE HEAT OF STEAM TO RETWIST AND REGAIN STRENGTH TO REPEL WEAR AND TEAR.. GROUT AND TEXTURE LINES IN TILE GET GRIMY.

YES, WE KNOW THAT THE STEAM WILL DISINFECT THESE SURFACES, BUT WHY A PROFESSIONAL?  IT’S NOT “THAT” DIRTY, RIGHT? WHAT ABOUT A “SHARK”?

If steam-cleaning products, such as the ones in the link below, are so available at a low price, usually around $100.00, why do homeowners need professionals?

Great Question!  Note how each product is marketed so smoothly with sparkling floors and perfect homemakers?  It looks so effortless to keep everything spotless, just buy the advertised cleaning unit.  However, many things keep these cute little tools from being truly effective.  Our best customers have clean homes to start with and we still see drastic results when using professional cleaning methods.  

Have you ever wondered why a professional would be willing to invest $30K-100K in equipment and in depth training to clean for customers?  Trust us, it’s not just for those who “can’t clean for themselves”.  The steam cleaning we use at Old West Cleaning is a unique 7-step process and requires powerful equipment, specific chemistry and intensive training.

STEAM CLEAN THESE SURFACES:  Carpets, Upholstery, Ceramic Tile & Grout, Saltillo or Terrazzo Tile & Grout or even Travertine and Stone Tiles.

1. Pre-treat
2. Agitate
3. Steam Clean/Extraction
4. Agitate trouble areas with specific solutions for each type of problem
5. Steam Clean/Extraction
6. Drying Extraction/Vacuum
7. Groom Carpets (except for looped nap), apply fabric protectant.  On Tile & Grout apply grout sealer or tile sealer depending on the need.

NOTE:  Restoration cleanings require additional steps.  All cleanings are done under the assumption that the client has already performed the regular vacuuming, however we can arrange professional vacuum before steam cleaning when necessary at a small additional charge.

WE DO NOT USE STEAM TO CLEAN:  Wood, Vinyl and Laminate

At Old West Cleaning, we use all biodegradable products, mostly made from citrus and low moisture, low volume, high pressure, high heat and high extraction with the right chemistry at the right moment to accomplish our professional results.
