Steam cleaning business based in Dunsford serves entire region
Concerned about the COVID-19 pandemic, Stephanie Welch realized that disinfecting and cleaning was going to become a very important part of people’s daily lives. She discovered it’s an eco-friendly answer to all kinds of residential and commercial cleaning tasks, and is putting that knowledge to use in her Dunsford-based business that serves the whole Kawartha region.
Steam can “clean anything as effectively as any other method,” Welch says. “At the right temperature (312 degrees F) it’s more effective than most cleaning methods as it kills bacteria under the surface.” While some might hear steam cleaning and think only of carpets, “it’s just as effective on furniture, tiles, grout, vehicles, car detailing and mattresses,” she says.
The most rewarding part of her business is seeing the look on clients’ faces once she has brought a piece of furniture they’ve loved back to life. “Having clients tell me they were going to get rid of a couch or a chair because it was so stained and damaged” before Welch’s steam cleaning gives her a sense of satisfaction.
The process is also environmentally friendly because it doesn’t rely as heavily on chemicals. Another big advantage with steam cleaning is that “things tend to dry very quickly, which is ideal for mattresses, fabrics and carpets,” Welch says. “You don’t have to wait six hours for the surfaces to dry.”
