Steam Cleaning VS KIWI

Know the True Difference to Protect your Carpets

Up until the last 20 years, the only choice in carpet cleaning was “steam cleaning” (hot water extraction). As technology and creativity progressed, so did the choices in carpet cleaning methods.

A typical traditional steam cleaning consists of a carpet pre-spray treatment, followed by a hot water extraction with a heavy-duty wet vacuum. Although a steam carpet cleaning gives the appearance of a clean carpet, these looks can be quite deceiving.

Steam carpet cleaning uses too much water

Because there is so much water involved with a steam carpet cleaning, the padding and the base of your carpet take too long to completely dry, and in some cases, the padding can stay wet for weeks undetected. Steam cleaned carpets usually take several hours to dry, leaving a golden opportunity for mold and mildew to grow, as well as inconveniencing you and your family. Steam cleaned carpets also often have a layer of sticky residue leftover from the carpet cleaning which can quickly lead to more staining, not to mention that it’s not exactly what you want to feel between your toes in the morning before work.

Quick Dry and Low Moisture Carpet Cleaning Process

Luckily, there’s an alternative kind of carpet cleaning method available for those who don’t want to deal with long drying times and possible mold growth. KIWI Services offers dry carpet cleaning, which uses little moisture and has an extremely quick drying time—often only taking between 15 and 45 minutes.
