What is Carpet Steam Cleaning?
Steam cleaning, also known as hot water extraction, is the most effective method of cleaning carpets, as well as the most widely used. This method involves delivering a hot cleaning solution into the carpet at high pressure, which dislodges damaging and unsightly agents embedded in the fibres. These are then extracted from the carpet, along with the cleaning solution.
Our powerful truck mounted system enables the extraction unit to function independently, without the use of your power or water.

Why Choose This Method?
Your carpet acts as a filter for dust, dirt, pet hair and dander, chemicals and other everyday agents that degrade the look and feel. Not to mention those occasional spills – food particles, drinks and more can all end up in your carpet, leading to the formation of bacteria, fungus and mould. All of these agents can trigger and aggravate conditions such as allergies, asthma, eczema, alongside doing irreparable damage to the fibres of your carpet.
A thorough extraction of these harmful agents is therefore crucial to maintaining a healthy carpeted home. Crystal Clean has all the expertise, equipment and experience to do this.
