Choosing the Right Carpet Cleaning Method For A Job

Carpet cleaning is a widely popular business and every successful carpet cleaning enterprise ensures that each kind of carpet is treated with its appropriate cleaning techniques. Carpet cleaning does not just focus on removing dirt and stains from the carpet but also retaining the integrity of the material and preventing any damage to it.

There are various chemical methods which are used for cleaning carpets. These methods vary with variety of carpets.

  • Hot Water Extraction: One of the most popular methods for carpet cleaning is called hot-water extraction or steam cleaning. This is a very effective method so long as the carpet is not too fragile or delicate.  In this method, the enzyme or the detergent is first sprayed over the carpet and it is given time to absorb the chemical. It is then sprayed with hot water. The carpet is again left to further absorb the enzymes and to loosen up the dirt from the material. It is then steam dried to extract the water and dirt leaving the material clean.  Wool carpets are mostly cleaned using this method.
  • Dry Foam Cleaning: Another similar method is the dry foam method where dry chemical foam is used in lieu of detergents.
  • Encapsulation: One method that has proven extremely useful in the large scale carpet cleaning jobs is the encapsulation method. In encapsulation, a chemical is laid down on the carpets that encapsulate dirt which adhere together due to the properties of the chemical. Then a simple vacuuming is done to remove the dirt. Encapsulation works best between the above two mentioned techniques.
  • Bonnet Cleaning: Another method that works best for carpets that are similar to hardwood floors is bonnet cleaning. A chemical shampoo is first applied to the carpets and then scrubbed off with a mechanical brush. Thus helps to remove stains and retains the texture of the carpet.
  • Dry Cleaning: Low moisture cleaning or Dry cleaning usually refers to a process using a waterless liquid to clean fabrics. One of the many advantages of this process is how grease and oil can be dissolved and eliminated more effectively than with water on many materials, from natural to synthetic.
