Carpet cleaning is carried out to remove dirt, stains, and pet allergens from carpets, rugs, upholstery, drapes, furniture, flooring, and wall coverings. Carpet cleaning is a highly popular service throughout the United States and other countries. Most carpet cleaning companies offer a free consultation, guarantee on the work, and will steam clean your carpets or steam clean your rugs. Common methods used to clean carpets include dry-clean, hot water extraction, steam cleaning, and vacuuming with the use of a vacuum cleaner machine.
Dry cleaning involves the extraction of liquid dirt from the surface of the carpet through a vacuum cleaner machine. The liquid dirt is then dried by heavy drying. An automatic drier device is used to distribute the dry liquid dirt and removing the soil particles that are embedded deep into the carpet. This type of drying is most effective when it comes to removing dark and murky soils from carpets, rugs, and flooring. Vacuuming is also done using a vacuum cleaner, but this process is not complete as it does not remove all the dirt and soil particles that were embedded deep into the carpet. Vacuum cleaners do a good job in removing the visible dirt on carpet floors; however, the embedded soil particles are not removed from the carpet and need to be removed by dry cleaning or steam cleaning.
Most carpets are cleaned using a combination of both the carpet cleaning detergent and the shampooing method. Carpet cleaning detergent helps remove the dirt and soil that are not removed by vacuuming or shampooing methods. A good carpet cleaning detergent needs to have a strong smell to avoid masking the strong odor of soiled carpets and rugs. A strong cleaning detergent should have no smell on its own.
