Traditional Hot Water Extraction
Steam cleaning, also known as hot water extraction, can kill a significant amount of bacteria and other microorganisms, as the high temperatures used in the process can effectively sanitize the carpet – temporarily.
Even companies that claim to be more dry, often leave behind a life-giving amount of moisture deep in your materials. This is conducive to the growth of bacteria and mold.
Commercial-grade antimicrobial chemicals leave behind chemical residues and can’t reach the deep-down moisture, for example, the carpet backing, or a couch cushion.
The amount of bacteria and other microorganisms that are killed versus the amount that are created as a result of having wet carpet after a steam cleaning service will depend on several factors, including the temperature of the water used, the duration of the cleaning process, the ventilation of the room, and the type of bacteria or microorganisms present.
Interior Hygiene & Cleaning Standards
Scientifically Proven Results
It’s important to choose a professional carpet cleaning service that uses proper techniques and equipment to minimize the risk of mold and bacteria growth, and to ensure that the carpet is thoroughly dried after the cleaning process.
This can help to ensure that the overall level of hygiene in the home is improved, rather than worsened, as a result of the steam cleaning service.
Dry carpet cleaning is considered more hygienic, as it does not use water, which can provide a breeding ground for bacteria and mold. Dry carpet cleaning also tends to use less detergent, which can be beneficial for people with allergies or sensitivities.
Angel Dry technology does not use detergents. Most other dry shampoo and “low moisture” cleaning systems use processes that leave behind sticky residues, but typically in lesser quantities than what steam cleaning companies use.
There are several types of microorganisms and insects that are attracted to deep down moisture in carpet and upholstery materials.
Insects, such as silverfish, cockroaches, carpet beetles, and ants
Bacteria such as Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, E. coli, and Salmonella
- Fungi such as Aspergillus, Cladosporium, and Penicillium
- Mites such as dust mites and spider mites
Viruses such as the common cold, influenza, and the human coronavirus
It is important to note that not all microorganisms found in carpet are harmful, but some can cause health problems, especially for individuals with compromised immune systems or allergies. To maintain a healthy indoor environment, it is recommended to keep carpets clean and dry, and to have them professionally cleaned regularly.
