Common Carpet Cleaning Service Techniques

It is important that you carefully review the various methods of carpet cleaning and select the one that suits your needs that site. Although you can take care of your carpets with regular vacuuming and quick stains treatments, it is better to invest in a deep cleaning process. This will ensure that your floors remain clean and beautiful.

These are some of the common methods a carpet cleaning company may use to clean your carpets.

Hot Water

This method is also known steam cleaning. The machine sprays the hot detergent solution onto the surface. It then vacuums it away immediately. Professional companies will be extremely careful about how much water you use. It is possible for the padding underneath to get wet if there is too much. This can cause mildew and mold problems. You can attract new dirt to your home if the detergent is too strong or not thoroughly removed.

This method will take more time to dry than the other options. You can speed it up by opening your windows, using fans, or switching on the air conditioning.

Extracting dry or foam

The dry extraction technique uses a powdered cleaner. It is brushed into fabric with special machines that move it into fibers. You can vacuum the dirt and dust out of the fabric by using a vacuum. It is common to use a spray to pre-treat the stain before applying the dry chemicals. Be sure to vacuum up all powder. Otherwise, it could end up on your clothes and shoes. This is a popular choice because it does not require drying.

Foam extraction is similar in principle to hot water. An air compressor creates a dry mousse that is then applied on the fabric. A rotating, cylindrical brush moves the foam through fibers. When the dirt and dust are bonded to foam, the foam is cleaned out with a rotating cylindrical brush. It is crucial to thoroughly vacuum the surface before, and after, you use this method to get rid of as much dirt as possible. This is another option that takes longer to dry.

Rotary Shampoo

This technique allows you to push a cleaning substance into the fibers of your fabric using a machine equipped with rotating brushes. The solution will then be a dirt-filled, foamy substance which can be vacuumed up by wet cleaning. Due to the potential damage that brushes may cause to carpet fibers many carpet manufacturers discourage this process. Due to this being another wet process, drying times may be longer. It is possible for the surface to shrink or dry too quickly, which can lead to shrinkage and an unpleasant odor.

Absorbent Pad

The absorbent Pad method uses a solution that’s sprayed on to the surface. Allow time for the chemicals in the solution to work their way through the fibers and lift dirt up to surface. A machine with a large absorbent spinning pad is then used to extract the chemicals. It’s similar to a commercial floor buffer. This method should be used only by certified professionals. This can lead to carpet becoming puckered.

A carpet cleaning company may offer one or several methods. Each method has been used over many years. Each of these techniques is capable of doing a great job on almost any surface, provided they are used correctly. Discuss your requirements with as many companies as possible.
