What is the best carpet cleaning methods? Dry Clean or Wet Clean?

The dry cleaning methods – which are dry foam, dry chemicals and dry compound – do not rinse your carpet in any way. Instead, they may leave a dirty residue.

These are good maintenance methods to keep clean carpet and upholstery clean, but you have to use them every few weeks.

The most effective cleaning method is hot water extraction or steam cleaning, which is the most popular method used today.

 Hot water extraction means a hot water cleaning solution, under high pressure, is forced into your carpets and upholstery and then sucked out.

 Shaw Industries, the world’s largest carpet manufacturer, recommends hot water extraction as the primary method of cleaning carpets, carried out by an IICRC approved firm.

Carpet and upholstery cleaners use one of two types of hot water extraction. If they use a large unit that operates from a van or truck outside your home/facility, it’s called 'Truck-Mount' extraction. If they use a smaller unit that can be brought inside, it’s called a portable extraction. However, we would only recommend the larger Truck Mounted machines … as these are far more powerful than the portable machines you can hire from stores and also more powerful than smaller portable units many other carpet cleaners use.

The problem with the smaller portable type is that although they can break up the dirt, bacteria, chemicals and pollens in the carpet and upholstery, they don’t have enough suction (or what we call ‘Air-Flow’) to draw the dirt and chemicals out of your carpets and upholstery.

 Our equipment will clean deeper and leave your carpets and upholstery dryer, fresher and more importantly healthier than any other system!
