A List of Different Ways of Cleaning Your Carpets

Carpets are an essential part of upholstery and are used on the floor of houses to keep the floor warm. They are made up of sturdy fabric and are resistant to wear and tear. Since they are a part of the floor they are the most susceptible to dust and dirt. They are prone to be subjected to liquid stains, solid food spills, dust, sand, grains and several other things of the similar category. The scenario is even worse in homes that have children. Children are messy eaters and tend to spill everything that they hold. It becomes quite a task to maintain your carpet cleanliness and to make this chore easy carpet cleaners have been designed and categorized into various methods that are as follows:

– Robot style vacuums:

Robotic vacuum cleaners are not only restricted to domestic but also office use. They are powerful devices and run on heavy duty electric current to give that perfect clean and dirt free carpet. They have built-in sensors that help them reach the most remote places and not trip over the stairs. They work with the principle of vacuum suction and hence make sure that all the loosely as well as firmly attached foreign particles are sucked into the machine even from the minutest of area on the carpet.

– Absorbent Pad Carpet Cleaning:

This is a simple method of surface cleaning of the carpets. It costs less and is a rather simple origin. However, this method of cleaning is not recommended for carpets of high quality or price. Another benefit of this process other than being easy and user friendly is that it dries off rather quickly as compared to other wet methods of carpet cleaning.

– Steam Cleaning:

This is also known as hot water extraction method. It is done by first applying a detergent based solution on the carpet followed by the rinsing of the carpet, after a certain period of time, with a pressurized cleaning tool which can be either manual or automatic in nature. It thoroughly removes all the dirt and particulates stuck to the carpet. Chemicals including pretreatments, preconditioners or traffic-lane cleaners are added to the cleaning solution that breaks the binding of the soils to the carpet fibers.

– Dry cleaning:

This process is similar to steam cleaning with the only difference of use of very low moisture. It is fast and effective and less labor-intensive than the steam cleaning.

– Dry compound:

An absorbent cleaning powder is spread evenly on the carpet and is brushed or scrubbed in. All the dirt and soiled particles on the carpet adheres to this powder which is then vacuumed off the carpet.

– Bonnet cleaning carpet:

This is more of an instant cleaning method that removes dirt off one third of the carpet surface. Club soda along with cleaning mixture is deposited on the carpet surface while a round buffer bonnet scrubs the surface in a circular motion. It has longer drying time as compared to other methods.

– Encapsulation:

This involves the addition of substances that have the ability to bind and encapsulate the soil particles on contact. The deep cleaning compound absorbs the dust prior to its removal from the carpet. They are then vacuumed off the surface with ease. It is the most effective method since it leaves little or no wet residue.

Thus are the various methods of carpet cleaning and is practiced accordingly in places of business, residence, retail stores, and hospitals and so on.
