Carpet Clean MYTHS No 3:
Carpet Cleaning is a subject of much confusion with customers. Here are some of the leading myths about carpet cleaning and the actual truth behind the misconceptions.
Dry Cleaning vs Deep Cleaning Carpets
The Hot water extraction method we use is the recommended method by carpet manufacturers. Why? Well the Hot water extraction method provides the most thorough cleaning available because it uses hot water to help clean and sanitize and remove dirt, bacteria and contaminants form the based of the carpet fibers.
The dry cleaning method still uses some water, but only cleans the top surface of the carpeting, not deep down into the base of the carpet fibers where the majority of dirt, bacteria and contaminants settle over time.
Another issue with dry cleaning is that the solution being used to clean the carpet is neither rinsed nor extracted which means that residue is left behind. If a spot is deep down in the carpeting, which many tend to be, the spot will often reappear shortly after being cleaned since it was never actually removed in the first place.
Check with your carpet manufacturer for the recommended cleaning method. Choosing a method of cleaning other than what the carpet manufacturer recommends could actually void your warranty.
