Low Moisture Cleaning systems are all the rage now a days in our cleaning industry globally. Terms like "Encapsulation (Encap), Oscillating Pad (OP) and Pad Cap seem to advertised everywhere. Before Hot Water Extraction came into existence, Carpet Shampooing (the original low moisture system) was the main method available in our carpet cleaning toolbox. The main downside though was how quickly the carpeting got resoiled and then needed cleaning again.
However, like everything, technology moves aheads and leaps and bounds. Today, Low Moisture Systems are amazing and are proving very popular in the correct situations and have been opening doors to cleaners that previously didn't exist, or that were simply to much hard work to pursue, for very little monetary gain. We are now witnessing low moisture systems that have outstanding abilities to clean the carpets and leave them very dry and doing so without leaving any sticky residue, and thus negate resoiling issues in both commercial and residential situations. While Low Moisture Cleaning systems will never do away with the Hot Water Extraction process, it does fill a need for most carpet cleaners and deserves a considerable amount of attention to learn more about these amazing processes.
