Cleaning your carpets can be a hassle. Remember the days when people use big sticks just to remove dust from their carpets? Imagine the look on their faces and the stress on their arms as they try to remove as much dirt as they can without cleaning the carpet completely. Well, that does not apply today because today, most carpets are stuck to the floor. But then people who have carpets at home still go through the same hassle when getting their carpets cleaned. Sure, we have different ways of cleaning carpets such as using vacuum cleaners or cleaning it manually.
But is there really a best way to clean carpet without the hassle?
Well, today is your lucky day. This article will take you through the different methods on how professionals clean their carpets. Not only are these methods effective, but they are also used by huge corporations including one of the biggest carpet manufacturers, Mohawk Flooring.
So are you ready to clean your carpet? Here’s how.
Hot Water Extraction
This is the method that big carpet manufacturers are using. It is a process that involves steam cleaning your carpet with a huge device called a truck-mount unit. What this does is that it forces water into the carpet and then sucks it back up. This process allows the dirt to escape the carpet and it ensures complete cleaning from corner to corner.
The downside, however, is that this process is not cheap. The big truck-mount units cost a lot and their portable versions do not have as much power. But since this process is able to clean the carpet’s bacteria, mold, dust mites and others without leaving residue, it is truly the best way to clean a carpet.
Of course, cleaning your carpet is not limited to water extraction alone. You also have another option. That is dry cleaning. This process can be done in a variety of ways. One way of dry cleaning your carpet is by using a device that utilizes foam that dries the carpet. This foam is then vacuumed up with all the dust and grime from the carpet. Another way is by using a spinning cotton bonnet. It acts the same way as the foam. Meanwhile, there is also the wet sawdust dry cleaning method. This is where wet sawdust is applied to the carpet and when it is dry, it is vacuumed out. All these methods are designed to clean your carpet. And the best part is that they are cheaper and they can be easily done at home.
However, dry cleaning also has a downside. While it is cheaper, it does not perform as well hot water extraction.
But the method proves to be way better than ordinary vacuum cleaning.
So what is the best way to clean your carpet? That is up to you. You can opt for the completely clean, professional yet bulky and expensive option or you can opt for the not so clean but cheap and easy option. The choice is up to you.
