Making plans to have your carpets cleaned is a simple enough process, whether you bring in the professionals or try tackling the job yourself. Aside from clearing the decks by having all occupants leave the area to be cleaned, there is the time that must be set aside to allow for the carpet to dry. For those living in humid climates, where there is limited ventilation or if the water used to clean the carpets is insufficiently extracted, you run the risk of mold growth or mildew becoming a problem. With professionals on the job using their equipment, this is typically not even a problem, but due to the drying time, this still requires one to two days to complete.
What if there was an alternative method to cleaning the carpets that did not take as much time and did not use all that water and still resulted in the beautification of carpets? There is some good news. While steam cleaning, more aptly called hot water extraction, has been the primary method of cleaning carpets for better than 40 years, recent developments in carpet care technologies have made it possible to perform the job with “very low moisture” (VLM).
Chemical dry carpet cleaning in Hunterdon, NJ relies on the use of dry compounds along with cleaning solutions for a faster and less labor-intensive process of cleaning your carpets than the wet-extraction method. Detergents and emulsifiers are used to pre-treat the areas to be cleaned, including traffic-lanes, breaking down the soils that have bound to carpet fibers. Allowing these compounds to “dwell” in the carpet for about 15 minutes is all it takes before a high-tech carpet brushing machine is used with VLM to create some agitation that removes the grime. This method results in deep fiber cleaning.
These new chemicals are polymers that work to encapsulate, or crystallize the soil particles, performing like “tiny sponges” to capture, dissolve and absorb the dirt. Once this has been accomplished, a brush applicator is attached to a rotary machine that allows a cleaning solution to be applied, something that may also be achieved through the use of compression spray. Then, this dry residue is simply vacuumed up making the carpet once again available for use.
Another approach uses an old stand-by for getting out stains – club soda. When mixed with the cleaning products and applied to the carpet in a mist, a “bonnet” then uses the rotating action to scrub this mixture. This industrial machine is reminiscent of a floor buffer with the spinning pads, except these pads are designed to attract the soil and then simply follows a “rinse and repeat” method to pull up the dirt. There is a short drying time associated with the bonnet method.
