Cut Pile "bubbling" when wet?!
I'm hoping this forum can help me with the following query. I've cleaned a few Cut Pile Saxony carpets using the hot water extraction method. I find that this type of carpet lifts from the floor very easily when wet
. Even with only a pre-spray it lifts. Then when I apply more solution to the carpet it becomes quite prominent (forms 'bubbles'). I'm not over wetting the carpet. I use a portable extractor with a Rotovac 360i. I give any carpet a maximum of two sweeps of solution and then extract. Like I say, even the pre-spray has this effect on Cut Pile. Is this normal, or am I missing a trick? To be honest I don't know if when the carpet dries it returns to its normal shape, but none of the customers have complained. I'd appreciate any input.
