Understanding Carpet Cleaning Methods and Related Services The four types of carpet cleaning are carpet shampooing, dry powder method, bonnet cleaning and external extraction method. In carpet shampoo method, foaming aims to attract the soil with its residue and eventually vacuumed up and soil the next day. When it comes to using shampoo products, choose one that has a very high foam levels to reduce wetting, stable foam, high lubricity to reduce carpet fiber damage, and dry to a non-sticky residue. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is the most common ingredient, which is an active ingredient that exhibits a very high and very stable foam. The problem with this method is that they dry to a soft, sticky residue which will cause resoiling, so need to choose a shampoo product that contains an anti-resoiling additive such as a resin to reduce this resoiling tendency. The two types of machines used in carpet shampooing method are cylindrical foam and rotary shampoo. Carpet absorbent cleaners is also called as “dry cleaning” because only small amounts of water, detergent and solvent are used, which are sprinkled over the carpet using a machine to attract and absorb soil. The brush works on the carpet as mechanical agitation, and the liquids dissolve the soil and this solvent, soil or detergent mixture is absorbed into the carrier and then vacuumed up. Detergent is often used in heavily soiled areas, and the absorbent cleaner is most commonly organic, but may also be polymers. A thorough vacuum cleaning should be done in this method so that most of the carrier comes out of the carpet, because one of the common problems experienced with this method is the accumulation of white powder that reappears after a wet extraction cleaning. There is no drying time for interim maintenance, since little water is used, that’s why this is a common maintenance cleaner. Carbonated cleaning or bonnet method is a simple adaptation of hard floor spray buffing to carpets, wherein it uses a rotary or oscillating brush adapted with a stiff brush or drive block designed to drive wet, damp or dry pads. For the process, the carpet is sprayed with a cleaning solution and the pads are soaked in the cleaning solution, and squeezed lightly before placing the pad under the driving brush. Warm water extraction is also called steam cleaning or hot water extraction, that is the most commonly used method performed by nearly all carpet manufacturers and carpet fiber producers. Steam cleaning is classified as a deep cleaning method, that forces the dirt out of the carpet which is sucked up by the vacuum slot immediately in front of the spray. The truck-mounted system is preferred because the dirty air and humidity are exhausted outside rather than recirculated around the house, and it is more powerful than portable units and get the carpet dry faster.Looking On The Bright Side of Carpets
