There are also a plenty of small steam cleaners available for either purchase or rent. However, for more deep and thorough cleaning of the entire carpet surface, we highly recommend calling a professional. There are a lot of variables with home steam cleaners – the water temperature, the amount of cleaner you have to add, the method of use – that create conditions for things to go wrong.
Generally, home steam cleaners tend to heat the water to lower temperature than professional machines, which could result in unsatisfactory cleaning results. In addition, these tools are not as powerful, as the ones used by the cleaning companies, which means they are not able to extract as much of the water and dirt from the carpet’s fibers.
