Misconception #3 : All methods of cleaning are equal.
Truth: Using the best method of cleaning on your carpet is the most important factor on how clean you carpet gets, how healthy your carpet is for your family, and how long your carpet ultimately lasts.
There are two basic methods used to clean carpet. One is the dry cleaning method which consists of the use of dry powders or foams. This method’s best feature (your carpet never gets wet so it doesn’t need time to dry) is also it’s biggest drawback. Dry cleaning tends to leave a lot of dirt and residues in your carpet because your carpet is not rinsed in any way. Imagine washing your dishes with a dry chemical powder and then “rinsing” them by vacuuming.
The best, most effective way of cleaning carpets is hot water extraction. Most carpet manufacturer’s including the world’s largest manufacturer of carpeting, Shaw Industries, recommends the hot water extraction method as the preferred method of carpet cleaning. In this method, high pressure is used to force a hot water cleaning solution into your carpet with water jets. This spray is designed to completely rinse the fiber from top to bottom. The hot water is then sucked back out effectively removing dirt and pollutants from your carpet. The main reason this method works better is because the water is heated to a high temperature that easily breaks up the dirt, pollens, pollutants and bacteria in your carpet. The next step involves using high powered suction to extract or remove this grime from every part of your carpet. Hot water extraction performed by trained technicians with a truck mounted unit is like a deep cleaning and massage for your carpet.
