Carpets are one of the most costly decorations in a house and they often get the attention of anyone who enters the home. To maintain a beautiful ambiance inside your home, it is important to keep carpets clean and tidy. These are some of the best Northern Beaches Carpet Cleaning techniques for 2023.
1. Method for Hot Water Extraction / Steam Cleaning
The process involves applying hot water detergent at high pressure to a carpet, and then vacuuming the area quickly of dirt and other soil particles. Spraying equipment is usually either portable or truck-mounted. Some vacuums are equipped with unsettling or rotary devices that push the solution in the carpet. This helps to loosen soil and dirt.
Notice: The term steam cleaning can be misleading because it refers to the use of actual steam in carpet cleaning. The carpet is much more susceptible to being damaged by heat from steam than it is to be helped.
Professional help is required for this process. It should never be attempted at home. For the best results, truck-mounted equipment draws power from your vehicle’s engine and not your home electric supply. Carpet cleaning equipment that is too rotating or unsettling can cause serious damage.
2. Shampoo/Detergent Method
A rotating brush is used to apply shampoo or detergent solution through the carpet’s cavities. The brush’s revolving motion on the carpet helps to foam it, pushing it further into the carpet. A vacuum is then used to remove any shampoo residue that has dried.
This technique has its downsides.
For example, to reduce after-cleaning smell, increase its color, speed dry, or brighten it, you may need to add chemical solution.
Vacuuming done incorrectly can cause severe damage.
Carpet residue that isn’t cleaned well can act as a magnet and cause rapid re-soiling.
3. Combination of hot water extraction and shampoo method:
As the name implies, this process combines the best of both the previous two. This method should not be used for extremely dirty carpets and rugs that have heavy oil deposits.
This process has two main steps:
Rotating brush to shampoo the carpet.
Carpet is extracted using hot water and not soap. While both detergent and water can be used for thorough cleaning, it will increase the price of cleaning because it requires more labor.
4. Spin Bonnet Cleaning Method:
The Detergent Method is the same route. A spongy, absorbent pad known as a “bonnet” is attached to the bottom end of the rotary brush. The carpet is then sprayed with a detergent solution. A rotary bonnet is used to remove all dirt and soil. It can be rearranged and then used if one side becomes excessively stained. It can be rearranged and replaced with another ‘bonnet’ if both sides are soiled.
