Different Methods of Carpet Cleaning

Steam Carpet Cleaning Process

It’s inevitable that rugs and carpets are going to get dirty and dusty in day-to-day life. That is why it is important to clean them regularly, as the dirt can cause allergies and other health challenges, especially for children and the elderly.

Fortunately, there plenty of methods for cleaning your carpet, and here are a few:

  1. Dry Compound. This method is done by spreading an absorbent mixture that looks like wet sawdust all over your carpet. A machine then brushes the mixture into the carpet, which absorbs the dirt. Once the mixture has dried, you can vacuum it out of the carpet and remove the dirt.
  2. Dry foam extraction method. This method utilizes a chemical foam, specifically designed for delicate fabrics. It doesn’t require water or heat, making it especially good for antique rugs.
  3. Encapsulation. Polymers chemicals are used in this dry cleaning process. They encapsulate and crystallize dirt, soil particles, and other residue when applied to the surface of the carpet. The encapsulated dir t can then be removed after a few minutes using a vacuum. It keeps carpet clean for a longer period, and the carpet can be used immediately after cleaning.
  4. Shampoo. This method utilizes a buffer machine to apply shampoo to the carpet. It is one of the cheapest and most traditional methods for cleaning carpets, but is not always the most effective.
  5. Bonnet Cleaning. This is considered better than the shampoo method, which only spreads the dirt rather than removes it. It uses a spinning cotton bonnet that is dipped in a cleaning solution and then placed in buffing machine. You move the machine over the carpet, and the rotating movement of the spinning bonnet removes dirt.  Once the carpet is fully dry, vacuum it thoroughly to restore the texture of the carpet.
