There are many different methods of carpet cleaning. The big questions are, which carpet cleaning method is most effective? Which is best for your carpet? Which will last the longest? After you read this article, we hope you will have a better understanding of the different types of carpet cleaning available, along with the confidence to choose the carpet cleaning method that will be best for you and your carpets.
Carpet Steam Cleaning
Carpet steam cleaning is a popular yet ineffective way to clean carpets. Hot water and pressurized steam are injected deep into the carpet fibers, dissolving dirt, grease, and stains. The water and dirt are then sucked up by the vacuum. This carpet cleaning method has two big problems. First, most of the cleaning solution usually doesn't get removed. When this happens, it can leave behind a soapy residue in your carpets that just attracts more dirt and grime. Second, high-pressure heat can actually damage the carpet fibers. There is no point in investing in carpet steam cleaning that will result in the gross, damaged carpet.
Carpet shampooing is one of the oldest methods of carpet cleaning. It is a method of cleaning carpets using a detergent or soap-like solution. The solution is applied to the carpet, which is then agitated by a machine to allow the detergent to penetrate deep into the fibers. After a short time, the solution is vacuumed up in attempting to take the dirt with it. This carpet cleaning method is ineffective because it does not remove all the dirt and doesn't get deep into the fibers. Carpet shampooing also leaves behind a lot of soapy residues, which ends up being a massive problem for your carpets.
Bonnet cleaning is also sometimes called chemical cleaning. In this method, a cleaning chemical is applied to the carpet, and a rotating buffer or bonnet is used to scrub the chemical into the carpet. The carpet is then rinsed with water.
This method of carpet cleaning is not effective at removing deep-down dirt and oils, but it can be harsh on carpets and may cause fading or discoloration. Bonnet cleaning is often used as a quick fix for hotels and other businesses that have a lot of traffic on their carpets. Unfortunately, this also means that bonnet cleaning is not a real clean that will yield long-term results.
