What is the Best Deep Cleaning Method for Your Home Carpet?
Carpets warm the house with heat and a sense of comfort and cosiness. The only problem, and one of the reasons they are so popular, is they collect dust. The better your carpet is, the more dust it can absorb. While most people use shampoos to clean their carpets at home, we know that method is not practical; in fact, it could ruin carpet quality. Not to worry, there are plenty of carpet cleaning methods available for different types of carpets and rugs. Please don’t be stingy when it comes to carpet cleaning, or your carpet might pay the price.
To make it simple, hot steam is the best cleanser for old school and industrial carpets. They offer a whopping 90% chance to clean all the bacteria and dust from the carpet roots. It’s recommended to dry clean the carpets before usage to prevent any new stains from settling in, at least for a while.
There are critical differences between the various methods for carpet cleaning, which we will introduce to provide you with a better understanding of our services, and what makes out stand out in the home services industry in London. It’s important to note that if your floors aren’t clean or are challenging to keep clean, maintaining a clean carpet after the process will be difficult. Keep in mind, the following descriptions are brief, and you can contact us for a thorough discussion about the carpet cleaning procedures we offer.
Various Carpet Cleaning Services
We hope by understanding different cleaning methods, you will have an easier time deciding which way works best for you and your carpet:
- Steam Pressure Cleaning: in this method, we apply pressurised steam or hot water directly to the carpet roots using a hollow rod. The pressure alone is enough to remove any lasting stains and dust from the carpet fibre. The carpet is then easily cleaned, and the result is a fresh and fluffy carpet. It can soften carpets that have been exposed to sunlight for too long.
- Chemical Detergent Method: this is a more classic method, similar to using shampoos to clean your hair. We use a special detergent that offers the best cleaning results and does not damage the carpets. Once the detergent is applied, our staff will soak the carpet and scrub it using rotating brushes to deep clean the fibre. We will then rinse the carpet with water only for the final stage.
- Carpet Dry Cleaning: this method is suited for carpets that should be exposed to too much water, either because they are worn out or have meticulous designs or fibre. We use a specific powdered detergent with minuscule amounts of water to activate the chemicals. A rotating brush cleans the carpet roots and fibre with pressure, and finally, another unique extraction tool will rinse out the detergent and dirt or debris from the carpet.
- Encapsulation or Carpet Cleaning with Foam: this method is a heavy-duty cleaning process reserved for carpets with severe stains that are too dirty for standard cleaning procedures. This foam expands when applied to the carpet and air. It subsequently expands and cover the roots and causes the entrapped dirt to be released from the sources. The final step is hot water or steam extraction to rinse the carpet roots thoroughly.
- Bonnet Cleaning: The bonnet is a dedicated carpet washing device with a thick bonnet shaped apparatus used to clean the rugs with shampoo. The process is rather mechanical and provides a more efficient cleaning service with a reduced risk of human error.
Washing Your Carpet with No Experience Can Lead to Disaster
DIY methods have become a widespread phenomenon; with the collapse of the world economy and increased exposure in social media. Unfortunately, most people recording the DIY videos are experts and create this false sense of “easy work” in DIY jobs. The truth is, each of the seemingly mundane tasks needs expert-level attention. Most people ignore this when it comes to carpet cleaning and damage their carpet or rug by using incorrect cleaning methods or materials.
