Some of the Best Carpet Cleaning Methods

the first item in order is to investigate what material the carpet is woven from and what products are allowed for use to clean it. Each material has specific properties, which require certain cleaning solutions. Knowing this will enable you to find the cleaning method that is best suited. Wool carpets for example do not take kindly to alkalis or from being cleaned in extreme heat situations.

In order to clean a carpet correctly it takes more than just a wash. It entails removing deeply embedded dirt from the fibers, in a gentle and nonabrasive way in order to avoid damage.

Hot Water Extraction
One method of carpet cleaning entails hot water extraction. This method should however never be used on wool carpets. Also known as steam cleaning this method of cleaning involves the use of heat that suspends the embedded dirt. The next step in the cleaning process uses pressure injected into the fiber, which removes the suspended dirt.

The machine should also be suited to high or low pile carpets and if possible come with a spot treatment attachment in order to deal with the more stubborn stains.

First ensure that the machine is on the right setting and start pretreating high traffic areas and stains. Move onto the rest of the carpet before moving back again to the high traffic or stained areas. It may take two or more treatments to get your carpet looking new and fresh again.

There are a lot of different methods, but I think that the best method to do would be to take on a professionals. I know it is much expensive but I believed that they helped keep it in such good shape.

We have found Crystal dry carpet cleaning to work very effectively. It offers unique crystallizing polymers with detergent components. That creates a very goog blend to emulsify embedded soils (both dry and oily) and encapsulate them for vacuum recovery.

It also has a neutral pH, no volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and is non-butyl. Crystal dry cleaning agent is portion-controlled to provide consistent dilution for consistent cleaning as well as cost savings through waste elimination.

Yea it works and the hot water extraction method works but some times its a time wasting cos water attract dust. Above all if you prefer stream clean & dry cleaning that will be good for carpet because its a tradition method that has been using

The advantages of this method is the shortage of dirt attracting residues, the carpet stays cleaner longer. No rinsing is necessary. Huge areas can be serviced quickly and is cost effective. When choosing a deep cleaning method for your carpets, always check the recommendations of the carpet manufacturer, the equipment manufacturer, and your carpet cleaning professional.Mostly people select their method of carpet cleaning based on the type of carpet they have as its essential to think about various factors like its strength, its issues etc.
