Western Steam Residential Services

Essential Home-Services

Carpets, Upholstery, Rugs & Mattresses:  Safe, natural cleaning with no harsh chemicals or residue: Western Steam does not use harsh chemicals or oily soaps, so you will not have residues left behind to attract and hold dirt. Western Steam uses a patented, low-volume, carbonating process that uses up to 90% less water with biodegradable and non-toxic products.  Outstanding Results: Carpets, Upholstery, Rugs & Mattresses will have a longer-lasting clean and fast dry time!

Child and Pet Safe: Recommended for people with allergies or asthma.  Western Steam uses the best industry equipment.  Our truck mounted and portable equipment is simply ProChem (open link in a new window).  There are so many broadlooms and the quality is determined by the filament (fibre) composition and tuft (twist) which maintains foot-traffic longer.  To maintain the life of your broadloom investment, we recommend cleaning your carpets every 6 to 12 months. We offer scheduled maintenance plans and carpet and stain protection products.

Your sofas and chairs are utilized on a daily basis. Overtime, they become soiled by collecting grime and grease and can become shabby or dull-looking.  Like carpets and rugs, pet and human dander can accumulate in upholstery fibers.  Upholstery cleaning is paramount in keeping with a clean and healthy environment.  Western Steam technicians are trained in recognizing how to approach your upholstery cleaning needs.
When is the last time you cleaned your mattress?
 A good night’s sleep is not just about quality bedding. It is estimated that we lose anywhere from 300-500 grams of epidermis-strata (skin) annually. Like spiders and scorpions, dust-mites belong to the arthropod class. Quanine is a by-product of mite excretions (droppings). It is toxic and recent research has linked asthma, allergies and skin disorders to Quanine.  Read our Fact Finder links and then call Western Steam to get a better night’s sleep-rest assured.
Tips to Maintain a Safe & Healthy Carpet

1. Vacuum Often: Regular vacuuming removes dirt and debris that will damage the carpet fiber, increasing carpet life. 

2. Treat Stains Immediately: Do not rub spills! Always blot. Rubbing can spread the stain and wear out the carpet. Use white paper-towel or similar white absorbent to avoid colour transferring.

3. Call the Professionals
: Have your carpets professionally steam cleaned on average once every year to two years; more often for higher traffic areas. It is proven that the most efficient way to clean, disinfect and sanitize carpets, rugs, and upholstery is the high-powered water extraction method, especially when the equipment is truck-mounted like ours. These powerful units work to steam-clean and extract the water. Quicker than many traditional processes, it doesn't leave chemical residue behind. Only clean, fresher smelling, newer looking results.

Duct Cleaning
  Indoor pollution affects your health.  We live in a climate that keeps us indoors for most of the year. Call Western Steam for your duct cleaning needs and experience the difference.

New Homes:

It’s unfortunate, but drywall dust, debris and building products can and will fall into the venting systems of new homes.  It’s recommended that you clean your duct work before or when you move into your new home to get that extra clean and to protect your HVAC system investment by unblocking air-flow. We offer new-home builders special pricing on account.

Older Homes and Business:
Overtime, your ducts get a concentrated build-up of fuel by-products.  This build-up can trap contaminants that are later released into the air you breathe.  Mold spores can be released and recycled through your home, especially if the home has excessive moisture. We have extracted some strange things from duct work over the years including office supplies, dead rodents, toys and clothing. Removing these obstructions may improve ductwork air-flow and might aid in overall furnace efficiency.

Commercial, Industrial and Residential:

Fire hazard prevention starts with cleaning ductwork as part of your scheduled routine maintenance plan.  Lint can accumulate in exhaust venting to act as a fire ignition point. Call us today and book your Duct Cleaning with Western Steam.

You will often get the same, trained, uniformed technician because we don’t rush through jobs to get to the next job. This personalized approach in doing business is only one of the many reasons we keep our customers calling us again and again.  Western Steam does not charge more for extra air vent (registers) or have a minimum vent requirement in our pricing. We offer sanitizer or deodorizer and furnace equipment cleaning, too.

Other advantages of calling Western Steam for your Duct Cleaning include:  A certified, experienced technician and “all-in” pricing means you will not get hidden or extra charges.
Tips for Better Air Quality

1. Vacuum and Dust Often: Any loose dust will be sucked in by the cold-air return vents, transferred to the main ducts and furnace, and back out of the warm-air vents which will be the air you breathe. Reducing dust around the house will keep a cleaner HVAC system.

2. Change Furnace Filter Often: You get what you pay for. A more expensive filter will last at least 3-4 months while the cheaper filters will need to be replaced in about 1 month. With pets in the house, filters should be replaced more often.

3. Call the Professionals: Every couple years, it is important to have the vents professionally cleaned. Be cautious of the service you are paying for. Choose a reliable and well-rated company as this is an important service for healthy home breathing. Pet-friendly homes should do this more often as there is more loose hair and debris around the home.
