Upholstery Cleaning: 5 Reasons Why Steam Is Your Best Option
March 14, 2016
Upholstery cleaning is necessary to prolong the life of a vehicle’s interior and to keep it safe from germs and bacteria that may threaten your health and safety.
Your vehicle’s upholstery bears the brunt of all kinds of spills, food and pet stains, dirt, grime, and dust. This is why you need to use the best method that will provide you with superior cleaning results while also sanitizing the interior. We recommend steam cleaning, and we will be presenting five reasons to corroborate this recommendation.
Upholstery cleaning with steam
1. Steam works on all types of upholstery
Steam cleaning is ideal for any type of upholstery such as leather, faux leather, vinyl, suede, Alcantara, velvet, polyester, and nylon. Steam works well on both heat-sensitive and water-sensitive surfaces. If you have concerns about the ‘high temperature’ of steam, put those worries to rest because upholstery steam cleaners are equipped with temperature controls that can be adjusted to suit each type of material.
2. Upholstery steam cleaners are built to reach small spaces
Steam cleaners are equipped with parts or gadgets that can easily reach the areas between car seats and other small nooks and crevices. When other types of cleaning methods are used, such spaces are overlooked because of the inability to reach them. Why should you settle for an upholstery cleaning method that does an incomplete job when steam can do it better?
3. The heat of steam dissolves all types of dirt and grime
The high temperature of an upholstery steam cleaner is sufficient to dissolve stains, oil, dirt, and grime without damaging the material. Steam also removes pet hair effectively. While home remedies such as white vinegar can also be used to remove stains, there is no guarantee that it will not damage the surface.
4. Steam sanitizes the interior
The same high temperature that effectively cleans stains also kills dangerous bacteria and germs that are infesting your car’s upholstery. It also gets rid of the persistent odor that may be due to mold and mildew. That’s a clean and safe car for you!
5. Steam is eco-friendly
As a staunch supporter of environmental sustenance, DetailXPerts believes that this fifth reason propels steam to the forefront of all upholstery cleaning methods. Steam cleaners use a very minimal amount of water, thus contributing to water conservation. Additionally, there won’t be any toxic waste water that can contaminate rivers and lakes and endanger aquatic life. Minimal water usage also makes steam ideal for water-sensitive upholstery types. This is because no excess water will seep into the material, thus preventing that telltale musty smell brought about by damp upholstery.
