Problem about cleaning of carpet

Is steam cleaning the best way to go when you need to have carpet cleaned in your home? I want to hire a professional carpet cleaner, but not sure which type of cleaning method is the best for good extraction of dirt and leaving no residue, etc. I have the frise carpet now. Would love to hear the professional method you used and results of the cleaning process. What you liked or disliked about steam cleaning, etc.

you can always ask the professionals about the method - there are different types of cleaning depending on the type of the carpet.
I think that steam cleaning is one of the best choices, but this is only in my opinion

The professional you'll hire will explain all of those. It will also give you options to choice from, where you can put in your budget. Just make sure that you will hire a true professional on this matter.

I can't give out all the answers. We need to get this board rolling! We need for everyone to give their answer, not just me.

By the way... I AM a smartass so no offense taken. If I could make a living out of being a smartass I'd be twice as rich as Warren.

you're right. We definitely need to turn that blog back to life.
So, my answer is:
When my carpet needs a professional cleaning (which happens twice a year) I always order a steam cleaning, because it is more eco-friendly. The method uses only the power of hot water and steam and contains no chemicals.

Dry cleaning is also a good options especially when it comes to saving time. The carpet doesn't need to dry for days, but the cleaning method involves chemicals that could be very toxic sometimes.

No, not the owner. I've been a member since 2006 though. Another site I went to for many years decided they wanted to make money with their forum so I'm here to help people for free like they started out doing but got greedy.


What you want is something that is suffectant free. The only known cleaner to me that is suffectant free is Procyon. ALL other soap 'free' cleaners DO have suffectants in them. You do not want soap or suffectants in your carpet because they attract dirt because it is 100% impossible to remove all the soap if you put soap on your carpet. With that said, most carpet cleaners don't like using Procyon because it doesn't suds up so you will have a problem finding someone that uses it. The last I knew, it was not sold in stores. Not even professional cleaning stores. But, you can find it on-line. So if you choose to have a regular carpet cleaner that uses soap.... have it steam cleaned using water only.

When I used to clean carpets... we stopped cleaning carpets nowadays... I had a problem with a high traffic area. When I asked what I should do, I was told to put a bonnet on a buffer and it would solve the problem. I did it and I'll be damed if it didn't work. So I asked why not skip the HWE and just use the bonnet...??? No one had an answer for me. Since I already used a soap free, suffectant free chemical I figured it wouldn't hurt a thing if I tried it. The next day I bought a 12" buffer. So, I vacuumed, sprayed the carpet with Procyon and used the 12" buffer with the bonnet on it. The carpet turned out GREAT! So, I sold my $30,000.00 worth of HWE equipment and used my $500 buffer with the bonnet and Procyon. I charged $ .50sf to vacuum/spray with Procyon/bonnet clean/rake the carpet and most of the time the customer gave me a bonus on top of the high price I charged. That is the only way my personal carpet will ever be cleaned.

The best way to take care about your carpet is to hire professionals. Otherwise you take the risk to ruin your carpet.

hot water extraction is the preferred method of a lot of actual carpet manufacturers. SHAW is one that comes to mind. you also have the added benefit of removing dust mites and allergens along with the grime. dry bonnet is both cheaper and more profitable for the company but in my opinion doesn't offer the same level of service to the consumer.

I definitely agree with Racebum.
Dry bonnet is cheaper solutions for a dirty carpet. The low price comes from the low effectiveness of this method.

Is the prise as important as the quality of the cleaning. Do not take the risk because of the cheap prises.

HWE Hot water extraction is the way to go. Pre vac, Use a good pre spray, agitate if needed, hook up the TM and stand back. WOW !
