Carpet cleaning companies will try to trick you by claiming to use the "best" method available. Unfortunately! There is no such thing. What works best for your carpet depends on its age, material, pile and the amount of carpet cleaning it requires. However most carpet manufacturers recommend that their products be cleaned using the hot water extraction method often referred to as "Steam Cleaning."
The primary difference between hot water extraction and steam cleaning is the temperature of the water used. For a carpet to be steam cleaned, it must actually use steam. I know—who would have guessed? The water must reach a temperature high enough to transform into a gas. However, applying pure steam to carpet will not be effective in rinsing.
Natural fibers are cleaned with hot water extraction to prevent shrinkage, so is upholstery. It can be used to treat stains as well, unlike steam cleaning, which is avoided because it can actually set stains permanently. Hot water extraction, 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.

Did you know that your carpets can hold as much as four times their weight in dirt, and possibly even more? Carpets are a catch-all for dirt, with dust mites, pet hair, pet urine, dead skin cells, dust, insect feces, insect husks, bacteria, mold, volatile organic compounds, and many other types of allergens clinging to the fibers.
Carpet Cleaning is a must to maintain a healthy home. According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), carpet cleaning should be done every one to 12 months. They suggest frequent carpet cleaning if humidity has been high or if you have multiple people in the home, if you have pets, or if you have smokers in your home.
