Sanitizing your carpet

Many companies offer a service called sanitizing. They always want to charge you extra for this, usually the going rate is .25 cents a square foot. They have a great pitch where they tell you it will sanitize the carpet and takes all the germs out of the carpet, or some similar sort of pitch. Don’t be fooled by this, all this means is they are using hot water in the extraction method, all reputable carpet cleaning companies should be doing this automatically, without any extra charges. Our truck mounted steam cleaning equipment takes cold water and heats it to the desired amount of heat we want, we usually heat the water to about 210 degrees, and this of course will sanitize your carpet. All companies that use van mounted steam cleaning equipment should be using hot water in the extraction process, if their equipment is fairly new and regularly maintained.
