Removing hair from carpet can be very difficult. Many people think by just vacuuming, it will remove hair from carpets. But this is not always the case. The type of carpet your trying to get the hair out of will determine what method will work best.
Removing Hair from Carpet
When having a carpet cleaning job done, the first thing a professional carpet cleaner would do is a pre vacuumed. A good thorough vacuum with an industrial vacuum cleaner will be needed to successfully remove any type of hair from carpets. The way a good quality vacuum cleaner removes hairs is by the use of a power head. These are attachments that spin brushes round at high speed and not only spin but also vibrate. It’s this vibration that helps to remove the hair and also the loose dirt that is trapped at the base of the carpet fibres.
Even with a heavy industrial vacuum cleaner, it may not remove all the hair from the carpet. The use of a rubber electro-static rake may have to be used before the pre vacuum. This will roll the hair into balls that can be easily removed. A carpet cleaning company would assess the situation on arrival as to how best to remove the hair.
Carpet Cleaning in a Rental Property
If a rental property has been tenanted by a group of girls, it is sure that the carpets will be covered in hair and this can be a very big job to remove completely. This is when the aid of a rotary extraction machine will be best to use. These machines are connected to a powerful carpet cleaning machine with a high flow of CFM (Cubic Feet Per Minute). The rotary machine spins around at 700 times per minute, creating a cyclone like effect on the surface of the carpet and releasing the hair. This also works very well with cat and dog hair on carpets as well. When vacating a rental property, the manager of the property will require the carpets to be professionally cleaned. This will mean the removal of hair so hiring a company that can do this is very important or your bond could be at risk. If the carpets are not up to standard, the agent will get them redone again at the expense of the tenant.
When hiring the services of a professional carpet cleaning company to help with the removal of hair, you should be sure to ask them before booking if they have the right equipment on board to successfully do the job correctly.
Overview of the Carpet Cleaning Process
In order to achieve the best possible results when carpet cleaning, it is vital that a vacuum of the carpet surface is done. Without this, any debris on the carpet will stop the pre spray solution or carpet cleaning shampoo from penetrating the dirt and stains that may be there. This has to be done for carpet cleaning to be done right the first time. This same principal is the same when doing a carpet dry cleaning service, not just for carpet steam cleaning. Too many cheap carpet cleaning companies don’t pre vacuum, and this is the first mistake they make. So it is vital that you hire a professional company that will follow the right steps in the carpet cleaning process. This way you are assured of the best job possible.
