Why is it called a dry clean – and what makes it dry:
With a carpet dry clean, the machine that is used is a rotary scrubbing machine, this spins a cotton pad around on top of the carpet fibres, which agitates the cleaning solution, the solution is then absorbed into the pad along with the dirt removing much of the moisture from the carpet at the same time.
After this a second pad can be used, this will dry the carpet even more, this can be done a few times, and the more it is done the faster the carpet will dry, with the second pad in place; the
machine can be set to a higher speed if required, this action will dry the carpet in no time, but it does need a professional cleaner with good experience to do this, as damage to the fibres can occur if the pad is left in one spot for too long.
So the dry cleaning process relies on friction to perform the drying, friction is created from the cotton pad spinning on the carpet.
This is why with a dry clean, the carpets can be walk on dry after the cleaning process, If you rub any to surfaces together this creates friction, and it’s this that the carpet dry cleaning process uses to dry the carpets.
So it always pays to hire the services of a professional carpet dry cleaning company like Best 1 Cleaning to do your carpet cleaning.
