What is carpet cleaning hot water extraction?

Hot water extraction is a fancy way of saying that a hot water cleaning solution under high pressure is forced into your carpets & upholstery and then sucked out again.

In a recent Technical Bulletin, Shaw Industries, the world’s largest carpet manufacturer ‘recommends the hot water extraction system, which research indicates provides the best capability for cleaning’.

This is the method we recommend for most cleaning. On which type to choose, Shaw’s Technical Bulletin states: “Cleaning can be done from a truck mounted unit outside the facility with only the hose and wand brought inside, or where a truck mounted unit cannot reach, by a portable, self contained system brought into the facility”.

Shaw Industries recommends extraction cleaning. And this isn’t surprising.

You see, this system cleans much better because it heats the water to a safe temperature – and shoots the cleaning solution into the carpet. This breaks up the dirt, bacteria etc. in the carpet. Then the machine produces huge vacuum volume to draw the dirt and solutions out of your carpets & upholstery.

This is the method Art of Clean use. No question, the most effective way to clean carpeting & upholstery is with a truck mounted hot-water unit. It’s the most powerful cleaning machine on the market and the only machine that cleans your carpet & upholstery of dirt, harmful bacteria, fungus, chemicals, pollens and tobacco residue and dust mites. Some people believe that hot water damages your carpets & upholstery, but this is not true. By washing and then rinsing your carpets & upholstery with hot water, we clean them completely – in the same way that the person who showers and rinses off the dirt and soap will be much cleaner than the person who only takes a sponge bath.
