There are many different methods of carpet cleaning. The big questions are, which carpet cleaning method is most effective? And which carpet cleaning method is best for your carpet? It is important to understand traditional and even popular carpet cleaning methods and what effects they have on your carpets. When you pick a carpet cleaner for your home, you want to be confident that your carpets will be cleaned well and that the process will be gentle enough to not damage your carpet fibers.
Carpet Steam Cleaning
One of the most popular carpet cleaning methods is carpet steam cleaning. Carpet steam cleaning, also known as hot water extraction, uses high-pressure hot water to agitate the carpet and loosen dirt and soil. One drawback of steam cleaning is that it can take a long time for the carpet to dry completely. This is because the hot water used in the process can leave a lot of moisture in the carpet.
Dry Carpet Cleaning
Dry carpet cleaning is a newer method of cleaning carpets. This method uses chemical dry cleaning solutions that are applied to the carpet. The solutions are applied to the surface of the carpet and then vacuumed up. Dry carpet cleaning is not recommended because it is not eco-friendly and the solutions can be harsh on your carpets.
Bonnet Carpet Cleaning
Bonnet carpet cleaning is a method of cleaning carpets that uses a rotating brush and a cleaning solution. The brush is attached to a machine and the solution is sprayed onto the carpet. The brush then scrubs the carpet and it is all vacuumed up. Bonnet carpet cleaning is often used in hotels because it is a quick way to clean large areas of the carpet. No, this method is not very effective. It is only a surface-level clean and doesn't do much in regards to actually cleaning the carpet.
Carpet shampooing is another popular method of cleaning carpets. A carpet shampooer applies a foamy solution to the carpet and then scrubs it in with a rotating brush. The shampoo and dirt are then vacuumed up. Carpet shampooing is extremely frowned upon as a carpet cleaning method because it leaves behind a ton of residue that is harmful to your carpets and family. When residue is left behind, it acts as a dirt magnet that makes your carpets even dirtier.
Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning
Also known as "encapping", encapsulation carpet cleaning is done by spraying a cleaning solution on the carpet that dries and crystallizes into a coating. The dirt and soil are then vacuumed up along with the dried coating. This method does not clean as deeply as other methods and can actually make high-traffic areas dirtier.
