Popular types of carpet cleaning explained
Popular types of carpet cleaning explained – When many people think of carpet cleaning, they think of steam cleaning, otherwise known as Hot water extraction. Though this is the most common and effective type of carpet cleaning, it is actually just one of five different carpet cleaning methods. Foam cleaning and shampoo cleaning are not used much anymore. Bonnet cleaning is preferred for maintenance cleaning. Now dry cleaning and steam cleaning of carpet both have their own places. These two are the most used carpet cleaning methods now a day for domestic carpets. I will explain these two methods below briefly:
DRY CLEANING: I have met many people in our industry who believe cleaning carpets using the dry method is the best thing. The dry system is actually a three- part procedure. First you sprinkle the solvent on the carpet. It’s a powder. The directions say you must allow the powder to stay on the carpet for about 15 minutes. Then, using a special buffer with two rotating heads, you go over the carpet. This rotates the cleaning powder into the carpet. Your final step is vacuum, vacuum, vacuum. As you vacuum, the powder and the dirt it has accumulated is removed. The great thing about the dry method is that there is no drying time whatsoever. For schools, offices, 24-hour facilities, it is best way to go… for a while. My own experience is that eventually the carpet will need to be steam cleaned. Just as in all the methods mentioned above, not all the powder gets removed and it begins to attract dirt itself.
STEAM CLEANING: Finally, we get to the most common carpet cleaning method. To really clean a carpet, deep clean a carpet, it will need to be steam cleaned at least once if not twice per year depending on the use it receives. “Steam” cleaning is really a misnomer for there really is no steam. Hot water with a cleaning solution is extracted via a wand. You go over the carpet a section at a time, overlapping your last pass. As the hot water is extracted, the wand is also vacuuming up the water and the dirt. Some wands have plastic hoses that are clear. When you look at the water being extracted, it often looks brown and dirty. You and your customer can see that the carpet is really being deep cleaned. It is a very good idea to vacuum the carpet first to pick up loose and surface level dirt. Since the carpet takes up to 8 hours to really dry, you cannot vacuum it afterward. However, as it dries, the carpet nap rises and the result is a very clean, fresh and “new- appearing” carpet. The big advances in the water extraction method the past few years have made this one of the best ways to clean carpets. The machines are now more powerful, and, one of the best improvements, the water extraction power has been increased so that drying time is shorter.
I hope this will help you choosing right carpet cleaning in Sydney solution for your home.
