Carpet cleaning is an essential part of maintaining a home or office space. Over time, they take on dust, grime, bacteria, stains and spills that need to be taken care of regularly. Failure to keep up with professional carpet cleaning services can induce the growth of mold or mildew, and cause respiratory issues like asthma attacks, according to the National Center for Healthy Housing.
The carpet cleaning industry has come a long way. With over $5 billion earned in revenue this year, it’s safe to say they’re a growing at an exponential rate. New and improved cleaning methods are being developed to make carpet cleaning more efficient and effective.
Here are some of the main carpet cleaning methods used by professional companies:
Steam cleaning, also known as hot water extraction, is a popular way to deep clean carpets installed in a home or commercial area. Although it’s called steam cleaning, ‘steam’ is used to clean the carpets since the temperature is high maximum results can be achieved. Synthetic fibers like polyester, olefin carpets are recommended to be steam cleaned. It’s, therefore, essential for you to employ the services of a company with a good reputation and certification to perform carpet cleaning services.
Hot water extraction is done via equipment that sprays steam onto the carpet, while simultaneously sucking it back up. The hot water dislodges all kinds of dirt and helps with stain removal as well. Adding specialized cleaners to the process ensures the fibers are conditioned and the carpet is disinfected too. Maintaining the proper Ph is also an important factor.
Preconditioning is the process of loosening up the dirt in and on the carpet fibers. Carpet cleaners use preconditioning agents based on the type of carpet they are dealing with. Alkaline solutions are applied to synthetic fibers, while mildly acidic solutions are applied to natural fibers like wool.
Once the solution is applied, a scrubbing machine is used to work the cleaning agents into the carpet. Last step hot water extraction is used to rinse out dirt that’s embedded and remove the cleaning agents effectively. This cleaning method is the most advanced system using a truck mounted carpet cleaner.
Extraction and drying
The process of extraction and drying uses steam less water. The carpets are left almost dry with strong suction from the truck mounted machine. We ensure rapid drying of the carpet by using a air mover. This prevents the growth of mold and bacteria. Having an experienced company for these services ensures it’s done well. The cleaning technicians will clearly instruct you on how to air out your home to facilitate the drying process.
