Effectively removing stubborn stains from rugs, carpets, tiles, and upholstery can be a challenge. The process of steam cleaning generally means that a mixture of warm or hot water and detergent is spread over the surface whether it be a carpet or rug and then worked into fibres.

After this, the moisture is vacuumed up, and the surface is rinsed to eliminate any remaining dirt and cleaning solutions. 

Professional steam cleaners will bring their own tools such as powerful vacuums, which are able to clean tough stains quicker and more effectively.
Items to Clean

Steam cleaning can be used for several different purposes. The most common use for steam cleaning is of cleaning carpets.

However, they are also used to clean sealed, glazed ceramic tile, and grout, as well as shower doors and track, patio door tracks, appliance exteriors, countertops, patio furniture, and can be used to clean and sanitise around sinks and taps. Other popular steam cleaning applications include sanitising and refreshing mattresses, bedding, and drapery.

Another popular use of steam cleaning is the removal of grease from kitchens. Grease from cooking oils can easily create tough stains that are difficult to remove on your own.

Steam cleaning can also be employed outside the house as well. For instance, steam cleaning can be used to clean garden tools, boats, and much more. 

Rooms that Need Cleaning

Steam cleaning can be done in just about any room in the house or even in an office, but there are some that are better suited to it. Bedrooms are especially suited to steam cleaning. From carpets to beds to upholstery, your bedroom is filled with things that can benefit from a good steam cleaning.

Getting your drapes cleaned, for example, does much more than just make them look better. It also helps to make things more comfortable for those suffering from allergies, as drapery can trap dust over time. If you’re having more problems than usual with your allergies, then consider a deep clean.

Kitchens and bathrooms alike are at their best when they are at their cleanest. A regular clean will keep your bathroom looking good.

The benefits of a clean kitchen speak for themselves, clean surfaces are fundamental when cooking. Steam cleaners can tackle stains in your kitchen tiles and grout to ensure your kitchen is sparkling with cleanliness.

How Long does Steam Cleaning Take?

The amount of time it takes to steam clean primarily depends on how deep the stains are set, and whether your steam cleaners will need to move furniture in order to clean. The number of areas you plan to clean plays a role as well. The more areas that need cleaning, the longer the project will take. Once the cleaning itself is complete the area will then need to dry so be sure to alot time for this as well if you're on a tight schedule.


As is the case with any professional service, it’s always worth your time and money to invest in professionals. Experienced steam cleaners will have top equipment and are skilled in professional cleaning techniques.
