Wet cleaning methods

This method of carpet cleaning comprises two different techniques – deep steam cleaning or hot water extraction and absorbent pad cleaning.

  • Steam Cleaning – For thorough cleaning of carpets from deep inside steam cleaning is recommended by the professional service providers especially for carpets that are heavily soiled. The cleaning process can reach down to the deepest level of the carpet that uses high temperature and chemicals to remove the soils by vacuum extraction after soaking the carpet with cleaning agent. Steam cleaning is more expensive than cleaning by absorbent pad as it uses sophisticated cleaning machines and it takes more time for drying.
  • Absorbent pad cleaning – But for carpets that are less dirty cleaning by absorbent pad works well. Also known as bonnet cleaning, the process cleans the surface of the carpet up to a depth of a third while the chemicals used for cleaning along with the dirt are pushed down to the deeper layers. The process starts by vacuuming the carpet and then moistening it with cleaning chemicals. The bonnet or absorbent pad is then scrubbed on the carpet with the help of a rotary machine and the scrubbing action removes the soils and dirt from the top layer of the carpet. This is a cheaper method that is good for routine carpet maintenance.

Dry cleaning methods

Here also there are two methods – Dry foam method and Absorbent compound cleaning method.

  • Dry foam method – A shampoo like foaming surfactant is applied on the carpet that is allowed to stay for some time and then removed by vacuum to suck away dirt and soils that had accumulated beneath the carpet surface. This is a fast cleaning process that does not cost too much.
  • Absorbent compound cleaning – The leaning agent used in this method is a compound of a powder in special solvents that is spread on the carpet to absorb the dust and dirt that is ten removed by vacuum. This is a very fast and simple method.
