Carpet Cleaning Approaches08/24/2013 Back To Blog
It is a fact and a harsh reality that carpets do get dirty. Busy households create traffic and traffic brings dirt with it. Kids as well as pets that play outside in the dirt are known for bringing that dirt back in with them. This is just unavoidable. Even in households that are quiet and have very little traffic, dust buildup and cooking residue can still accumulate causing it to dull and lose its original color.
Renting or buying carpet cleaning equipment is an alternative to restoring it; hiring a professional carpet cleaning service is another. Vacuuming constantly is not a good option. Even the most vacuumed, pet-free, kid-free, or stain-free carpets require more than just vacuuming. Dirt can permeate fibers deeply below the pile, eating away at it and shortening its lifespan.
More costly cleaning approaches are not guaranteed to give you the best results, especially when it comes to a healthy one. Using cleaning equipment in the wrong manner can even further damage it. Dry cleaning is usually not a good way to clean greatly soiled floors. Dry cleaninguses high pressure equipment that prevents odors and moisture related damages. Here are a few different kinds of equipment associated with these various cleaning methods.
This is often referred to as a steam cleaner; this machine pumps a cleaning solution into the fibers, then sucking it out using a highly powered vacuum. Some of them have built-in heaters because using hot water is more effective when removing oil-based stains and dirt. This does a better job than most, however, it will leave it quite wet.
This piece of carpet cleaning equipment is known for its round pad also called a bonnet. With the use of friction it extracts dirt from the fibers. Although the floor will dry much quicker, this method does not serve deep cleaning purposes.
