Different Methods of Carpet Cleaning
Carpet cleaning is an important part of maintaining your home. With different types of cleaning available, it can be hard to know which one will work best for you and your carpets! Luckily we're here with all answers. Let's take a look at each type, shall we?
Carpet Steam Cleaning
The carpet steam cleaning method uses extremely hot water and detergent that is sprayed onto the carpet. After it is applied to the carpet, a machine uses suction to remove the water and dirt. Carpet steam cleaning is an ineffective carpet cleaning method because the high temperatures of the water can damage the fibers of the carpet. Additionally, the water and detergent can leave behind a residue that attracts dirt and makes your carpets dirtier than they were before.
Carpet shampooing has been around for decades but has not changed very much. The shampooing process involves heavy soaps and detergents that are applied to the carpet and then agitated with a machine. The shampoo and detergent mixture sits on the carpet for a period of time and then is vacuumed off. In many cases, all the soap does not get fully removed, leaving behind a nasty residue that attracts more dirt and filth. In addition to dirty carpets causing allergies and other potential health issues, when chemical residues are left behind, the lifespan of your carpet decreases.
Bonnet carpet cleaning is a method of cleaning carpets that uses a low-moisture cleaning solution that is applied to the carpets with a mechanical spray applicator. A piece of cloth, or bonnet, is then placed over the head of the applicator and used to agitate the solution and loosen dirt and soil. The bonnet itself is usually made of microfiber, which picks up the dirt and soil as it is rubbed across the carpet. This method is often used as a temporary, "quick fix" surface-level carpet cleaning method, that does not actually clean your carpets very well.
Dry Carpet Cleaning
Dry carpet cleaning is a newer method of carpet cleaning. This method uses a special powder that is spread over the carpets and then worked into the fibers with a rotating brush. The powder absorbs dirt, dust, and stains. Once the powder has had time to work, it is vacuumed up, taking all the dirt, dust, and stains with it. Dry carpet cleaning is also not a very effective method of carpet cleaning because it does not remove all the dirt, dust, and debris from deep within the carpet.
Encapsulation carpet cleaning is a newer method of carpet cleaning that uses a special powder to absorb dirt, dust, and stains. The powder is then vacuumed up, taking all the dirt, dust, and stains with it. Encapsulation cleaning is not a very effective method of carpet cleaning because it does not remove all the dirt, dust, or residue-meaning your carpets will just become a magnet for dirt and gunk.
