Carpet Cleaning Methods
Carpet cleaning methods
These are the different carpet cleaning methods offered at @gjassetmaintenance. Our technicians will determine after inspection which method is most suitable for your carpet, however if you as the customer have a method preference we will of course honor the request.
Steam cleaning (hot water extraction)
Steam cleaning is suitable for most carpets. It’s done with a truck-mounted or portable machine.
Carpet manufacturers recommend hot water extraction as the preferred method of carpet cleaning to invigorate and prolong the life of the carpet and is our preferred method @gjassetmaintenance.
In the process:
the carpet is vacuumed a chemical is sprayed on and left to bond with the soil water is injected into the carpet with a high-pressure jet spray, and finally, the water is vacuumed out.
#drycleaning (some water is used though less than in steam cleaning), is what the standard refers to as a “surface cleaning”. It’s handy for areas that receive a lot of traffic and need a fast drying time. Dry cleaning can be used as a maintenance clean, but steam cleaning is best as your full clean.
#bonnetcleaning is the most commonly used form of dry cleaning.
In this process:
the carpet is vacuumed a cleaning agent is applied to the cleaner. The cleaner has a pad (the bonnet), which rubs the carpet, transferring the dirt onto the pad, and, finally, the carpet is vacuumed.
