Dry carpet cleaning
Dry cleaning is not actually totally dry but uses less water and specialised detergents as well as extraction equipments to remove dirt and debris from the carpet. Professional cleaning services will first check your carpet to see if it is made of wool or synthetic fibre and then use an appropriate wet (or actually, low moisture) process. A mix of pre-treatment, detergents and conditioners is applied to the carpet to bind together dust and debris as well as oils, greases and stains. Another process makes use of a cleaning compound rubbed into the carpet to bind together dust and dirt and this is then vacuumed off. Recent methods used by professional carpet cleaning services involve the use of special polymers to encapsulate dust and a machine then applies the cleaning solution after which the carpet is vacuumed, removing all stains, dirt and oils. The carpet becomes spotless and bright, looking almost like new. Another method involves the use of foam shampoo and then removing it once dried with a vacuum cleaner. This is followed by hot water extraction. Another method used by professional London carpet cleaning is to rub an absorbent pad on the carpet to remove dirt and stains.
This is very thorough and not only cleans the carpet but also sterilises it and renders the environment germ free. The equipment used includes high speed steam or hot water generating machine mounted on a truck along with a pressure pump and high vacuuming machine. Cleaning is thorough and over 95% of the water is recovered with the carpet drying out within minutes of such hot water cleaning. High vacuum suction removes most of the hot water.
There is more to carpet cleaning than using shampoo, a brush and water. If you want your carpets to be clean, sterile and stay like new for years, call in the experts.
