What are the standard methods for carpet cleaning?
There are several ways to clean the carpets, and each has both advantages and downsides. Details come next.
Hot water extraction
Also known as professional steam cleaning, hot water extraction stands out from the other methods for carpet cleaning. With this method, professionals use a high-pressure wand to apply hot water to carpet fibres. The pressure and the hot water will dissolve mud, dirt, dust, and other debris from carpeting and allow effortless extraction. Steam revives the carpet fibres and leaves them fresh and soft feeling.
Carpet dry cleaning
Unlike other methods, this one relies on special powder detergents or similar chemicals applied with a small amount of water. The professionals use rotating brushes that push the powder into the fibres and a specialty extraction tool to remove the detergent, dirt, and debris.
The carpet cleaners apply specialty detergents with a lot of water. Rotating brushes will scrub the shampoo into the carpeting and loosen the debris and dirt. The next step is to use clean water to extract the shampoo until the carpets no longer have residues and are fresh smelling.
Also known as encapsulation, foam cleaning is used most often for filthy carpets. The carpet cleaners apply a speciality foam to carpeting where it expands, and the expanding foam will trap dirt and debris. Once they get to the surface, the cleaners use steam extraction to remove both the foam and collected dirt.
The professionals use a specialty carpet cleaning machine with a thick towel or bonnet over the front. The bonnet rubs rug shampoo along the carpet's surface and will be extracted with dirt and debris afterwards.
How does hot water extraction work?
The hot water extractor machine comes with two chambers. A solution tank is for holding the clean water and cleaning the solution, whereas the other tank keeps the dirty water extracted from the carpets. The high-pressure water will pump the hot cleaning solution from the solution tank into the carpet, helping to place ingrained dirt and debris into “suspension”. Strong twin vacuums will extract the dirty water and debris into the recovery tank on the machine. The entire process takes only a few seconds, thanks to the high-pressure pump and the power behind the vacuums. That’s why the hot water extraction method is highly effective and fast.
How quickly the carpets dry after hot water extraction cleaning?
The airflow, temperature, and humidity in the room and the type of carpet are aspects that count for the drying time. If you can turn up the thermostat on the heating and open up the windows, the drying process goes faster. Should you have under-floor heating, the carpets will dry even quicker. Some carpets dry in a couple of hours, whereas others need 3-4 hours. The professionals at Sil All Services Northampton will hand you free plastic overshoes to use so you can walk on the carpets right after they're done with the cleaning. Please don’t place any heavy furniture back onto the carpet until it’s entirely dry.
What are the benefits of the hot water extraction method?
Even if the other methods for carpet cleaning are also efficient, the hot water extraction method stands out with its benefits. Keep reading for the details.
It's environmentally friendly and green
We recommend the hot water extraction method for carpet cleaning because it uses the minimum amount of detergent and water. The method shows that you care about the environment because it prevents water waste and doesn't require any chemical soaps. Additionally, the water and detergents used for the process are entirely biodegradable and don't harm the environment.
It ensures a fast drying time.
The hot water extraction technique ensures a fast drying time because it doesn't require much water and detergents. Most carpets will dry between 2 to 4 hours, depending on the type of carpet. Traditional carpet cleaning methods would leave the carpets wet and with detergent residues. When the carpets stay wet for a long time, the risk for developing mould and mildew is significant; both can cause respiratory illness in people. Needless to say, with the hot water extraction method, such issues won't develop.
It leads to the most effective cleaning results
With hot water extraction, the stains are easy to remove. Moreover, the method can remove any stain that accidental spills of wine, blood, coffee, food, and cold drinks may cause. Hot water extraction can remove even the stubbornest stains.
