The best way to clean event carpets

Steam cleaning or hot water extraction

Steam cleaning is the best way to clean a carpet, as the hot water extraction combined with the cleaning solution removes dirt deep, getting to the root of the problem. The so-called “steam cleaning” is confusing because there is actually steam, hot water but applied on the carpet.

You can hire a professional rug cleaning, which may be a better option to do it for yourself.Professional services are familiar with materials and fabrics that make carpets and know how much water and solution will achieve the best results for specific stains from your carpet.Professional services are better than home cleaning system because hot water extraction mounted on a truck uses the power using hot water much better than a tap home pressure, removing the dirt deeper and effectively. Another great advantage is that all the dirt and fat is sucked from your carpet is deposited directly into a waste tank, so you do not have to throw in the trash after cleaning.

Instead of hiring a professional, you can rent a steam cleaning machine as Rug Doctor or buy, as Bissell Steam Vacuum or Hoover Steam Vac. The opinions in Epinions show that these machines work well to remove old stains.

The water vapor used these machines usually reaches about 118 ° F (48 ° C) which alone helps to release the particles and ingredients that have been stuck into the fabric of the carpet. The best temperature for this type of cleaning is about 150-200 ° F (65-93 ° C). The hot water is combined with a cleaning solution that removes stains, and then the area is aspirated to remove all dirt and particles.

Not only steam cleaning is the best method for cleaning carpets, but also also has many advantages. First, high temperatures kill bacteria, fungi, dust mites and mold, making the carpet is like new, which is good especially for those suffering from allergies. Steam cleaning leaves no residue, unlike foams purchased at stores such as Resolve, which attract dirt and may damage the carpet fibers.

Other methods of “steam cleaning”

Steam cleaning carpet is usually associated with hot water extraction. However, this is only one of the five methods of carpet cleaning with steam, although the traditional way is considered the best hygiene carpets. Other methods may be a good option when the traditional steam cleaning is very costly or inconvenient.

A foam cleaning carpet cleaning common method is to apply a semi-wet foam cleaner or dust the stain until dry, then vacuum the residue. However, it is unlikely that the product itself can tear out all the dirt particles, especially old stains. In addition, foams or powder apply only adds to the existing dirt on the carpet, because the cleaner may not have the necessary suction power to remove all debris.

Shampooing a cleansing shampoo is applied to one similar to that used on wood floors planer. The machine sweeps the carpet with the product, but no extraction after cleaning. So essentially, dirt spreads, making it appear that the carpet is cleaner.

Cleaning bonnet Another way to clean a carpet is to use a rotating cotton bonnet. The bonnet is immersed in a solution of shampoo and then placed at the bottom of the sweeping machine. The high-speed rotating action is intended to loosen dirt and absorb stains on cotton. When the bonnet is dirty, you can rinse it and turn it around to continue cleaning.After the carpet is dry, the area is drawn. This method is better than the shampoo because the bonnet absorbs dirt, unlike the sweeper, which only has the ability to spread the solution.Although the method is better than shampooing, it is not higher than cleaning with hot water extraction because cleaning is based on absorption bonnet instead of the vacuum suction steam, which is more potent.

Dry Cleaning Finally, there is also a dry cleaning solution. a powder on the carpet is applied and allowed to act for 15 minutes. a sweeper is then passed with two rotating heads on the carpet to get the deepest powder. Finally the area is sucked to suck waste. Again, not all dust is cleaned with a vacuum cleaner and dust is not effective for old or dry spots.

Special Tips for white and colored carpets

Try to keep a white carpet in this state can be a challenge, so it is advisable to thoroughly clean a white carpet rather than wait until you see the first signs of dirt. If the white carpet is in an area of heavy traffic and people step on the shoes on, or near a kitchen where waste oils and stick to it, a deep cleaning every 6 months is recommended. As dirt and stains can not always be in a colored carpet, deep cleaning is recommended every 18 months.

When you do not use steam cleaning for a white carpet, look for products asserting a “deep cleansing”. This leads to the bottom of the fibers, as a white carpet that is cleaned only superficially might suggest that the color is actually ivory.

Even if your carpet is white, do not use bleach is recommended, as it may result in a patchy appearance.
