Carpet cleaning is done to remove dirt, stains, and allergens in carpets, used as part of home decorating. Common methods used for carpet cleaning include dry-clean, steam cleaning, and hot water extraction. Below are some important facts about carpet cleaning that you should know.
Carpet cleaning requires a lot of work, which is why most people hire carpet shampooers. It is a proven fact that a regular shampooing of carpet is not able to remove all the soil and residue that remains in the carpet. Carpet shampooing is able to remove these residue and dirt through a process called adsorption. What happens is that the carpet cleaner sprays a foam onto the carpet, then sucks up all the dirt and soil that are present along with the foam.
Another technique used is dry cleaning. Dry cleaning or shampooing is also popular as it is more convenient to use than hot water extraction. The dry cleaning method of carpet cleaning consists of spraying a hot water extraction solution onto the dirty area, then working the hot water extraction solution with a rotary brush machine until the area is clean and dried out. The rotary brush machine is capable of removing grease, dirt and dust without damaging the carpet fibers.
Vacuum carpet cleaning is done by inserting a suction cup into the vacuum cleaner’s bag and then filling the bag with the dirt and soil from the area to be cleaned. After that, the suction cups’ air release the dirt and residue into the cleaner’s bag. The machine works by sucking all of the dirt and soil from the carpet cleaner’s bag without it damaging the fibers. Suction-driven suction carpet cleaning machines are also capable of sucking up and dislodging ground-in dirt.
The last technique is dry shampooing. In this technique, a large amount of shampoo solution is poured onto the carpet fibers and left to sit for some time so that the shampoo can penetrate into the fibers and make its way deep into the carpet fibers. Then, the shampoo machine goes on to remove the excess water from the carpet fibers through the fan brush attached to the machine. After that, a strong vacuum cleaner is used to completely rinse the carpet from top to bottom. The process is very effective in removing soil residue and also removes the residue and dirt from deep into the carpet fibers. However, dry shampooing is not able to extract oil and grease from carpet fibers.
