When your carpets are dirty and need a good cleaning, you might just go on and vacuum them. But did you know that there are benefits to regular shampooing and steam cleaning than just clean carpets?

Protect your family and your carpet with professional carpet steam cleaning that will:


  1. Remove Trapped Pollutants
  2. Clear Out Dust Mite Infestations
  3. Help Prevent Mold Growth
  4. Extend Carpet Life
  5. Refresh, Renew, Restore and Impress



Check out these facts below to see how regular shampooing and steam cleaning can improve your carpets, home, health, and more!

#1 – Steam Carpet Cleaning Removes Pollutants

Dirty carpet holds pollutants from many sources: pet dander, cockroach allergens and dead bugs. Lead and foreign particles are also tracked in from outdoors and the workplace. Carpeting can absorb and then release VOC’s (volatile organic compounds) from paint, cigarette smoke and other sources. Significant quantities of pollutants can be released into the air inside your home with just normal daily activities. Further, young children playing on carpet are much more likely to come in contact with pollutants in carpeting.

To help ensure longer life, maintain appearance, and help protect indoor air quality, carpets requires regular vacuuming with a well-functioning vacuum cleaner equipped with strong suction and high-performance filtration, as well as periodic wet extraction cleaning.


#2 – Steam Carpet Cleaning Clears Dust Mites

They’re inside all our homes – microscopic dust mites. Upholstered furniture, carpet, mattresses, bedding, curtains and soft, fabric toys — that’s where they live. They thrive in moist and warm environments like ours. Feeding on flakes of human skin, pollen, fungi, bacteria, and animal dander. Dust mite protein and their waste products are known allergens. Normal activity releases the microscopic particles – we breathe them in – and worsen our allergies.

To minimize dust mites in your carpets — first consider prevention. Regular, thorough vacuuming using a vacuum with strong filtration is a good start. We kill any dust mites living in your carpet as we clean. They can’t survive the high temperatures of steam cleaning methods.


#3 – Steam Carpet Cleaning Helps Prevent Mold

Molds produce allergens which can trigger allergic reactions; carpeting is at high risk for mold growth. To grow, mold needs moisture, oxygen, dust, and a surface to grow on. Keeping your carpet dry is key to preventing mold. When it rains and snows, it’s easy for moisture to be tracked onto your carpet. Using door mats and removing shoes is a good policy. When it does get wet, blotting, drying and vacuuming will help to prevent mold.

When standing water occurs because of a leak or spill – all exposed carpeting must be cleaned and dried immediately. This includes the top and bottom, padding and the floor underneath.


#4 – Steam Carpet Cleaning Extends Carpet Life

Today’s high-performance carpets rarely “wear out”. Instead, your carpet slowly begins to lose its original beauty and impact as soil and traffic take its toll. To retain your carpet’s original luster and beauty, deep-clean every 3 to 6 months. This frequency may need to be adjusted depending upon: life-style of your household, frequency of vacuuming, and light or dark carpeting.

It’s important to deep clean your carpet BEFORE it becomes excessively soiled. Soil grinds away at the carpet fibers shortening its life. And, as the soil is pushed deeper and deeper into the carpet from foot traffic – your carpets become harder and more expensive to clean.


#5 – Refresh, Renew, Restore and Impress

Walking barefoot on soft, freshly cleaned carpet is a great feeling. Stylish, luxurious and comfortable – your decor is instantly enhanced. Your home smells fresh, clean and ready to enjoy. Enjoy the peace of mind that comes from knowing you’ve taken the necessary steps to protect your loved ones from any health hazards hiding in your carpeting. Clean and soft carpeting instantly make your guests feel comfortable and at home with a neat, clean carpet that says “welcome”.

When you clean with the HYLA, the air with dust and other particles enters the HYLA water pan through the inlet tube, creating an upward stream of water – the HYLA Geyser. This effect ensures optimal conditions for filtration by creating a mixture of droplets and dust particles, while the NEW HYLA DEFENDER blades cut larger water droplets into microdroplets and disperse them at high speed. The HYLA EST is extremely capable of reducing and eliminating pollutants within the air in your home, increasing your indoor air quality while reducing need for dirty filters, harsh chemicals, and more.
