We are often asked by cleaning contractors which commercial steam cleaning machine is best for carpet cleaning, so we thought it would be worthwhile outlining some guidelines to help you in the choices of commercial carpet steam cleaners and vacuum options available.
What Are Commercial Steam Cleaning Machines?
Both the Elsea Poseido Wet and Dry Vacuum and the Elsea Steam Wave are steam cleaning machines that heat the water to more than 100 degrees Celsius and pump it out as steam to loosen soiling and stains.
Some of these steam vacuum carpet cleaner units have a vacuum that ‘sucks up’ and collects the dirty water after the steam loosens the dirt and condenses it back into water again.
Is Steam Cleaning Really Effective?
For greasy soils that are broken down by heat, steam cleaning is very effective. Given that most heavy-duty steam cleaners operate at a temperature this is over 120 degrees Celcius, the steam produced by these professional carpet cleaning machines is also an effective and natural method of removing stubborn stains and sanitising your surfaces.
We’re sure that our range of professional spec carpet cleaning machines will leave your area sparkling clean, however, if you’re unsure what machine is best suited to your needs, contact the CleanCare team and we will gladly assist you.
Are There Different Types Of Professional Steam Cleaners?
Absolutely yes there are. As we have said before, some simply pump out steam leaving all the loosened dirt behind. The best commercial steam cleaning machine options will also have a vacuum capability so they can collect all the emulsified dirt and water. The results are transformative and a real treat for the eyes!
Our range of commercial steam cleaners is available with different power options both for the boiler and the vacuum suction motor.
The Steam Wave Machine from Cleancare has a 5-bar steam pump and 1 x 1250 watts vacuum suction motor making it ideal for both heavy domestic and light commercial use.
The next most popular machine is the Steam Poseidon which has an 8-bar pump, two 1250-watt vacuum motors, and the user can add carpet cleaning chemicals to the hot steam to ensure ultimate hygiene – it is also a fantastic steam cleaner for cars and other industrial tasks!
If you want the capability to add sanitising and deodorising chemicals, then we recommend you take a look at the Elsea Steam Plus Ozono Steam Disinfection Machine. This machine has a 10-bar steam pump and can generate Ozone for virus killing.
Do These Floor Cleaners Really Work On Carpets?
If you’re looking for professional carpet cleaning machines then yes, these are very effective for light cleaning of carpet and sanitisation. They also give a rapid drying time because of the high temperature and low moisture content. You can pre-spray with a detergent or spot remover and the steam vacuum carpet cleaner will rinse and extract this for you.
If your carpets are heavily soiled, however, or you want a machine specifically for carpet cleaning only, a hot water extraction machine is a better option. The Elsea Estro 125 Hotwave Carpet & Upholstery Hot Water Extraction Machine is shown here:
Bear in mind that hot water extraction gets nicknamed steam cleaning, but it is not the same thing. For it to be true steam cleaning, the water temperature needs to be more than 100 degrees C.
So, What’s the Conclusion About Carpet Cleaners?
If you want a multi-purpose commercial floor steam cleaner machine that can clean and sanitise, walls, floors bathrooms, kitchens, carpets, upholstery, and cars then please choose a steamer as shown here.
