Of course, very hot water might do a fine job of cleaning carpet. For tile and grout cleaning, however, steam is the best method. You should be wary of any company that cleans both carpet and tile with the same machine. Only steam can sanitize your tile and grout effectively. The equipment used by many of these companies is called a truck mount. Truck mounts heat up the water in a tank mounted to the truck or van, and pump the water through a hose to reach inside your home. Here’s the kicker: the water used to clean both carpet and tile is the exact same. They simply change the attachment at the end of the hose.
The bottom line is, if water is not hot enough, it doesn’t sanitize properly. It creates a clean appearance, but it really just spreads residue and mold around. Tile and grout, while they feel hard to us, are actually porous surfaces. Steam has the unique ability to penetrate those surfaces and clean them completely. Water simply glides over them. Steam is needed to actually kill the bacteria lurking around your bathroom grout.
Most impressively, steam has the ability to sanitize germs and bacteria, and eliminate allergens all on its own. After your bathroom is steam cleaned, you don’t have to worry about the dangers of chemicals or chlorine bleach being left behind.
