Dry carpet cleaning is popular simply because carpet can be walked on almost immediately after cleaning is completed. This is extremely convenient for homeowners who wish to walk on the carpets, or move furniture back immediately. For commercial clients, it is also means there is no down time for offices, hotels and even medical centers. The carpet cleaning process is also quicker than traditional wet extraction, so disruption is minimized.
But the benefits do not just end here.
Contrary to common misconception that dry carpet cleaning provides only surface cleaning, you can expect your carpet to be deeply cleaned typically by counter rotating brushes that will open up the flattened carpet and remove the embedded dirt within the carpet pile.
Compound, or known as powder by some dry carpet cleaning technology manufacturers, would be sprinkled on carpet during treatment. The compound is made of natural biodegradable ingredients like wood and maize that are transformed into small sponge-like particles that will be brushed into the carpet to absorb dirt and stain residues. The soiled compounds will then be removed by the cleaning equipment together with dirt and stains. Carpet can be safely stepped on anytime when cleaning is in progress. The above steps will be repeated until carpet is thoroughly cleaned and refreshed. This carpet cleaning method has proven to clean efficiently even on heavily soiled carpet.
A good dry carpet cleaning technology also comes with batteries of stain removal products that effectively dissolve dirt and stains on carpet. When dirt and stains on carpet are dissolved and removed effectively, your carpet will look refreshed and clean like new again.
For those who are concerned with chemical exposure during a cleaning process, dry carpet cleaning is an ideal choice because biodegradable ingredients are commonly used that contain minimal chemical content which can be removed from the carpet easily.
