Carpet cleaning is the process of cleaning carpets to remove dirt, stains, and allergens. It is important that the carpet is maintained in good condition because it serves as a flooring. Carpets not only add value to your home, but also provide comfort and homeliness to a home owner. Common methods used for carpet cleaning are dry-clean, hot water extraction, steam cleaning, and carpet shampooing.

Dry cleaning involves using water and a machine to clean the carpet, removing dust, soil, and dirt from the fibres of the carpet. Vacuum extraction is the method used to remove dirt from the surface of the carpet. When using vacuum extractors, you should make sure to use one with strong suction power to avoid damaging the carpet fibers. Hot water extraction uses cold water mixed with detergent to clean the carpet. A combination of both extraction and shampooing makes a successful carpet shampooing procedure.

Dry brushing is a method that removes the soil and loose dirt from your carpet without removing the fibres. The brush or vacuum cleaner goes into the affected area, brushes the dirt and soil away, then a new brush is used to remove the soil from the brush. Carpet shampooing involves spraying the carpet with a carpet cleaning solution, rinsing, then a special shampoo pad is used to blot the area. The pad must be allowed to air dry before vacuuming it. Combination vacuums or a brush/brush are used to remove the soil and residue from the shampooed areas.

Carpet shampoos with low moisture additives will keep your carpets free of mildew and mold. You should check the label to ensure that the cleaner contains low moisture agents. Low moisture cleaning products are recommended when your carpet is heavily soiled or when the soil is extremely dirty. There are several options for deep cleaning, steam cleaning, power washing, dry cleaning, stain removal, and spot removal. Depending on your carpet’s condition you will choose the appropriate cleaning process for it.

Once your carpet is clean and you are happy with its appearance, you can apply a protective coating to prevent future dirt and stains. This can be done in a number of ways. A good option is using carpet shampoo. If you have a low moisture soother or low moisture carpet protector, this will keep your carpet looking great. Follow the instructions on the label of your carpet protectors or soothers.

Some cleaners are non-toxic and do not contain any chemicals. Others have strong chemicals that may be harmful to your health. The best way to make sure that your family is safe is to invest in a good quality detergent and a good quality carpet shampoo. Using detergents with natural ingredients will not cause health problems or cause the carpet fibers to break down, making it a healthy option for your family and pets.
