The Benefits of Steam Cleaning Your Floors

You sweep, vacuum, and mop your floors, but that still isn’t enough to kill all the bacteria on the ground. In fact, your floors are heavily covered in soilborne bacteria

Regular mopping may not be enough to completely clean your floors, but there is a way you can better sanitize your home. Steam cleaning your floors can remove almost all household bacteria. It’s both safe and effective on almost all types of flooring.

Here’s what you need to know about the benefits of a steam cleaner and why you should hire professional cleaning services to sanitize your home floors. 

No Harsh Chemicals

Certain cleaning chemicals can cause irritation, health issues, and even harm our environment. Using greener alternatives is safer for you, your family, your pets, and the planet. 

Steam cleaning means fewer chemicals being washed out into our waterways. There are no concerns about contaminating our soil or water supply or harming local wildlife. 

Steam Cleaning Is Versatile

Steam cleaners can kill germs and bacteria on multiple surfaces, from tile and grout to carpet and more. 

Carpet cleaning can be a hassle, and over time ground-in dirt and oils can make your carpet dingy. Residue from your feet and your pets gets locked in the carpet fibers, making your floor ugly fast. Even after vacuuming, your floor can still look dirty. 

Dirt can even change the color of your carpeting. 

Thankfully, you don’t have to replace your carpet if you notice this. Steam cleaning can make your carpet look like new and feel much better underfoot. 

However, steam cleaning isn’t only for carpeting. You can clean tile, natural stone, sealed hardwood, and more. It’s a good idea to hire a professional cleaning company, though, as you could damage your floors if you try to do it yourself. 

It Kills Germs and Viruses

Steam is highly effective at eliminating germs, viruses, and mold.

One type of bacteria that can live on your floor is Escherichia colior E. Coli, which your pets can pick up and track inside. You might not be able to see it, but these germs and viruses can make you and your family sick. 

Steam cleaners work by heating water to the boiling point and creating steam. Steam is capable of reaching tiny nooks and crannies, such as between tiles or difficult-to-reach areas. It loosens grease and dirt, making it easier to wipe down your floors. 

If you want a truly clean home, you need to steam clean your floors. To preserve the life of your flooring, get it regularly steam cleaned and make sure to maintain it well afterward.

Steam cleaning your floors is the best way to ensure they’re truly sanitized. If you want a sparkling clean and healthy home, it’s worth it to invest in professional cleaning solutions.
