Hot Water Extraction vs Steam Cleaning
The simple difference between hot water extraction and steam cleaning is the temperature of the water used.
We know when you want clean your carpet, you really needed is a steam cleaning. The water must reach a temperature high enough to transform into a gas. Still keep in mind that applying pure steam to carpet will not be effective in rinsing.
Hot water extraction, on the other hand, only requires hot water. How hot? Hot enough that it cleans deeply and effectively, but not so hot that it changes into another state of matter.
So which is the best option? hot water extraction or steam cleaning? It’s hard to say, but hot water extraction is essentially superior. With pure steam, there is no “rinsing” of the fibers, which is necessary to remove soil and cleaning detergents.
The most important thing to note is that within the carpet industry, hot water extraction is increasingly being referred to as “steam cleaning.”
If you’re confused just ask, but it’s very likely that they use hot water extraction under the name steam cleaning. While most professional carpet cleaners use water hot enough to visibly produce steam, there is still hot water rinsing and flushing the carpet fibers. Not pure steam.
