Carpet & rug cleaners can be found in your local area, but finding a company that offers a 100% guarantee on all work is hard. This why Best 1 Cleaning offers a guarantee on all of our services. To have carpets and rugs steam cleaned requires a trained technician that understands how to remove stains and general dirt from deep within the pile.
Advice on Rug Steam Cleaning
When cleaning a rug, its best not to over wet it as the steam can penetrate through to the backing. If this occurs, the rug can start to let of bad odours. It is important to use a well maintained machine when cleaning rugs to extract as much of the moisture as possible. If a rug has been steam cleaned correctly, they should feel smooth and soft and should dry within a couple of hours.
Cleaning Oriental Rugs
The other way to clean rugs such as oriental rugs is through an onsite clean or collection service. A rug cleaning company picks them up and takes them to a cleaning base where they are cleaned in a bath and then left to dry in a drying room. This type of cleaning will clean the backing of the rug also, whereas an onsite clean only cleans the top part of the rug.
The carpet cleaning process is the same as the rug cleaning one. A pre spray solution is applied to the carpet and then left to dwell for some time, depending on the type of carpet that is being cleaned. Then, the steam cleaning process will start. Steam cleaning with a truck mounted machine is the most effective way to clean any material from carpets, rugs, tiles and upholstery. The steam will penetrate deep down into the fibres, releasing the dirt and bacteria. Steam will also kill the bacteria; this is an important aspect when having a clean done, as the bacteria can make carpets and rugs smell. But extracting the dirt from the base of the fibres will prevent this from occurring.
Deodorise and Sanitise
A professional carpet & rug cleaning company will also deodorise and sanitise the carpets during or after the cleaning process. If done during the cleaning process, the deodorisers and sanitisers are pumped through the hoses carrying the steam. This method is called continuous flow, and would be used if a carpet has had a lot of urine or other contaminates over it. If deodorising after the clean, it is applied using a low pressure spraying system.
