There are so many different ways you can clean a carpet. But they do not fit all fabrics and circumstances. This is why it is very important to discuss your unique needs with the carpet cleaning team before you have them complete the job. Some fabrics cannot be treated with strong chemicals, foam washing could cause damage to others and in certain places you will need a carpet cleaning method that requires minimal drying time.
Luckily, we can give you some pointers on all that and help you decide what’s the best carpet cleaning method for you.
Hot Water Extraction
This is a very good way to deep clean your carpet. Hot water under pressure has the power to eradicate soil, dust and allergens from the fibres. Combined with cleaning solutions, it will get rid of various types of stubborn stains. It leaves no residue on the carpet, so it is potentially safe for crawling babies and pets.
To be extra sure, we would recommend using eco friendly and non-toxic cleaning products with the machine. The downfall of this carpet cleaning method is that it requires at least a couple of hours drying time.
Steam cleaning is perfect for refreshing the look and feel of your carpet. Some steam cleaners can’t remove old or tough stains on their own. However, in combination with a green cleaning product, the steam cleaner is just as effective as any other type of carpet cleaning machine.
The most exciting part about the EV dry steam cleaner, for example, is that you can get on with your business immediately after the area is treated. No drying time required, which makes it ideal for busy households and commercial places.
Dry Carpet Cleaning
Some fibres like jute, coir and seagrass can only be treated with this carpet cleaning method. Dry carpet cleaning includes the spread of a special powder on the area and then scrubbing it through the fibres with a professional machine.
The development time is 15 minutes, after which the powder is vacuumed and the carpet looks, smells and feels extremely fresh. This method is ideal when you need a very quick solution or you need the treated area to be accessible almost all the time.
This is perhaps the most traditional way of professional carpet cleaning. We do not generally recommend this method as the rotating brushes can damage delicate fibres. More importantly, the residue of the chemicals can stay on the carpet and later on, be inhaled or ingested by a young child or a pet.
