Stains are a big problem in carpets, but some carpets are now being sold that are stain resistant. What this means is that they are better at repelling stains and marks. Whatever it is that has been spilled will still need to be wipes up asap or the stain could set and become more difficult to remove. This is when a professional carpet cleaning company would have to be called inn, with specialist cleaning solutions and cleaning machines to remove the mark from the carpet.
If stains are not properly removed, it will leave a sticky residue that will attract dust from the air and re-stain it faster than normal. When a cleaner removes a stain, it is important that the cleaning solution used is also fully extracted. This will keep the carpet looking cleaner for longer.
Methods of Carpet Cleaning
All carpet cleaners should thoroughly rinse the carpets after they have been steam cleaned or carpet dry cleaned. This will also ensure all germs and bacteria have been fully removed. By removing the bacteria, there is less chance of any bad smells being left after the cleaning process. Bad odours in carpets are usually due to poorly maintained cleaning machines. It is important that machines are cleaned on a regular basis or the dirt and bacteria will collect in the filter system of the machine and not work properly. By using a professional company, you can be assured that the carpet cleaning machines will be kept in good condition, allowing for maximum performance on each job.
Some people get confused as to whether to have a carpet steam cleaning job done or a carpet dry cleaning job. It is best to ask the advice of a local carpet cleaner and a lot will depend on the type of carpet being cleaned and also the age of the carpet and how long it has been between cleans. All these things come into account when picking the most effective cleaning method for your carpets.
Dry Carpet Cleaning
Dry carpet cleaning method uses friction and fusion to clean the carpets. The friction is cause by the rotary machine used to do the cleaning. The fusion is the two cleaning solutions used for the job. When each solution is mixed they fuse together, causing a chemical reaction. It’s this reaction, combined with the rotary machine, that gets the carpets clean.
Steam Carpet Cleaning
With a steam clean, very hot water is use to rinse the carpet after a cleaning solution has been applied. With steam cleaning, the cleaning solution is best to be left on the carpet for about 10-20 minutes to get the desired effects. Then they are rinsed with steam that is generated from the machine and the dirty water is held in a holding tank in the back of the van and later emptied.
As with all cleaning techniques, they require a well-trained cleaner to successfully remove the dirt from the carpet. No matter how good the equipment is, if the cleaner at the other end is not doing it properly, only one thing can come of it and that’s a poor job. So it will always pay to hire the services of a well trained professional to do your carpet cleaning for your home or for people moving out of a rental property.
