The normalization of carpets in homes was the beginning of a new era. Carpets originated about 5000 years ago in Asia and yet but it wasn’t until they were installed in homes from wall to wall was there such a need for carpet cleaning. It was no longer a matter of removing the rug and shaking it or hitting it with a stick. It means that if dirt was in your carpet it would have to be sucked out with a vacuum. However vacuuming on its own was not enough. We perfected our carpet cleaning techniques of different carpet materials before we were an official business and from there have been helping Norwalk’s carpets stay free of dirt.
Hot Water Extraction
Hot water extraction is the method of cleaning carpets that most people think of when they are looking to getting their carpets cleaned. For those carpets that are tuffed on a laminate backing this professional procedure will get that deep-rooted dirt at the bottom of your carpets. In the carpet cleaning industry it is well known that the steam and shampooing that loosens the dirt through hot water extraction while simultaneously sucking it up is one of the best ways for total dirt removal. Once there has been a little bit of preconditioning on the carpet we can begin.
Which carpets to clean with hot water and which ones not to clean
When it comes to hot water extraction you have options. There is the truck mounted cleaner and the portable cleaner. Truck mounted means the noise is reduced in the home and the suction and heat is amped up more to help dissolve stains. The portable hot water cleaner comes right into the house. The manufactures of carpets often give hot water extraction as one of the best ways to clean your carpet. However mad-made carpet fibers can’t always take the heat and some other materials make get pile burst and fuzzy from this method.
Dry- cleaning is increasing in popularity. If customers are not requesting dry- cleaning they are inquiring about it. When you are curious about dry- cleaning your carpet but are unsure of what exactly that entails, we can explain it for you. Dry-cleaning has in its name the main difference from the other carpet cleaning methods historically used. The process to dry clean your carpets involves no water or only a very small amount of water and the systems and machines used are referred to as “ very low moisture” systems. The methods machines and systems in dry-cleaning are dependent on chemicals and compounds.
When dry cleaning there may be a couple steps involving different compounds. For example there may be one solution applied as a pre-conditioner and the other used only in heavily soiled spots. The spot cleaning chemical will dissolve the grease in stains that adhere to carpets. When the stains are broken down and dissolved they are more easily sucked up and out of the carpet with a vacuum. Both methods of carpet cleaning are very effective and popular among carpet cleaning professionals. We also offer tile and grout cleaning service.
