Steam Is So Last Year: Introducing Texatherm A New Way To Clean Carpets And Fabrics

Forget the steam; at Aurora we use the latest system using the very latest technology. It’s kinder on carpets and fabrics as it needs far less effort to get the right result. Our new system injects a special cleaning solution through the material and within seconds a powerful pump extracts the solution with any dirt and bacteria. It means the pile is far cleaner and the system uses less water and energy than our previous systems and typical steam processes.

Aurora has invested in the Texatherm Cleaning System, a patented process combining a unique chemical technology with heat, causing agitation and reaction between two elements of the process.

Here’s the technical bit: The Texatherm process produces a capillary action which safely deep-wet clean carpets but also delivers all the benefits normally associated with dry cleaning systems.

The benefits are as follows:

a. It’s dry in only 30 minutes

b. Cleans, disinfects and applies an effective anti-static coating

c. It’s totally safe for use on wool carpets

d. Guaranteed not to stretch, shrink or split seams

e. Low moisture and noise levels

f. Up to 60% reduction in cleaning time

g. The system leaves no re-soiling sticky residues

h. Environmentally friendly as it uses less energy and water

i. The Texatherm system leaves a pH neutral carpet on completion

A “greener” environment is very important to us at Aurora; the materials that we use from Texatherm reduce noise pollution, use less energy and have eco-friendly backgrounds, which is core to our business ethos of becoming a constantly greener organisation. In addition, most the products we use are bio-degradable and evaporate rather than being passed down the drain, limiting chemical disposal into the sewage system. Also the score pads on our cleaning systems absorb dirt and any bacteria, and are sent away for washing rather than being disposed off through landfill or incineration.
