There are several misconceptions when it comes to carpet cleaning. One of them is that many people think that you should wait as long as possible; this is just not true! The built up dirt and grime are abrasive and can cut into the fiber of the carpet. This makes the fibers become frayed and spread apart. The dirt also can get stuck into the padding which is harder to get clean the longer it is stuck. Another thing is that people think that they only need to clean the most used and abused areas. It may seem to help the most in those areas, but cleaning all the carpet even in low traffic areas is good for the carpet and good for your family and pets in terms of health and allergens. The dust and dirt that naturally falls into the room will ultimately land on the carpet and need to be removed. Now that you know it is best to have all the carpets cleaned more often, what is the best cleaning strategy?
Drawbacks to Dry Chemical Carpet Cleaning
Dry cleaning is one of the cleaning methods that industrial companies are moving towards. The technician will apply a shampoo foam to the carpet and allow it to settle on the fibers and dry up. After the shampoo has dried they will use suction to go back over and remove the residue that has been added. This is when the dirt that has settled into the carpet will get lifted off. The bad part is; imagine for a moment if you did this to your hair. You get in the shower, apply shampoo and get out. After your hair has dried you get it sucked out by the vacuum. Exactly, that sounds terrible. The thought that the shampoo could be fully removed after it has dried seems unrealistic. Some companies swear by this method and say that if it is done right it could leave the carpet cleaner then what you started with. Carpet Care 2000 uses this method only when there is a risk of slipping and falling like in nursing homes, when specifically requested and also in some industrial settings.
Superiority of Steam Carpet Cleaning
It’s a fact that most carpet manufacturers recommend steam carpet cleaning also known as hot water extraction. Steam carpet cleaning is a much better method and has been developed even more so over time into a wonderful process that uses steam from water and cleaner to take care of all the carpet stains; big and small. The steam cleaning option uses hot water to activate the cleaner and right after the vacuum extracts all of the dirty water and residue off the carpet.
