Tell Me More About DIY Steam Cleaning

Sure, if you want to do steam cleaning on your carpet and sofa at home, here are some steps and tips for DIY steam cleaning:

Clear the Floor And the Sofa

Prepare a clean and clear floor first. It is very important to remove all items from the floor, including toys, pet beds, and other items. It may interrupt your cleaning process if there is a messy floor. Your sofa needs the same: remove all the items on your sofa such as pillow, books, …

Dust and Vacuum Thoroughly

Dust off baseboards and vacuum the entire carpet and sofa carefully. Steam cleaners are meant to pull up small dirt particles that are down in the fibers. Don’t forget to vacuum under your sofa to remove unexpected dust or web net.

Pretreat Stains

Use a special or homemade stain remover on specific bad spots before steam cleaning. Apply, wait and gently remove it with a cloth.  You shouldn't scrub at stains as this can cause them to go deeper into the carpet and sofa.

Prepare the Steam Cleaner

Remember to prepare a steam cleaning machine at home. Fill the tank of your carpet steam cleaner with hot water. Add dish soap, hydrogen peroxide, vinegar, and if you like, a few drops of essential oil. Start steam cleaning. You can start slowly to cover all the surface.

Let it Dry

Allow plenty of drying time and use fans to dry the carpet and sofa. It may take a few hours to totally dry.

Remember, steam cleaning is most effective when you remove all items from the surface and vacuum thoroughly before steam cleaning. Also, it’s always helpful to treat stains before steaming the carpet and sofa.
