Professional Carpet Cleaners & Methods

Owning your own equipment – If you have a high traffic house full of kids and/or pets, you might want to invest in your own home use extractor or cleaning system. Home cleaning units are not capable of cleaning like professional units, but they can go a long way in helping you maintain your carpet surface between professional cleaning.

Hot water extraction Carpet Cleaning System – Most home carpet cleaning systems are water extraction units that are also known as steam cleaners. These systems don’t actually use steam, but instead they work by injecting a solution of water and chemicals into the carpet pile, then pulling the dirty solution back into the machine. If you are making the investment, I am sure that it is required by your circumstances. my advice is to buy the best, most powerful one that you can. This will help gain the greatest benefits of your labor. you are doing the work anyways, this will only make the job a little simpler everytime you use the equipment.

Dry extraction Carpet Cleaning – Some home cleaning systems use a dry extraction method. First you spread a dry absorbent compound over the carpet being cleaned, then you vacuum it with the cleaning machine. These are little better than vaccumming but are way less effective than “steam cleaning”. in my opinion, this just freshens up the carpet for when you need without having to allow for drying time.

Rent your own Carpet Cleaning Equipment – In my opinion a complete waste of time. THESE UNITS ARE NOT “PROFESSIONAL UNITS AND USUALLY CAUSE MORE BACK PAIN THAN THEY ARE WORTH.With rental fees and the price of cleaning solutions (shampoo, defoamer, spot removers, odor removers, and more), a rental machine can quickly add up to just about the same price as bring in a professional to clean your carpets. Whoever has done this know the pain on the back as well as the pocket book.

Hiring Professional Carpet Cleaners – When you hire professional carpet cleaners, you’ll get to choose between steam cleaning and dry extraction cleaning. Each method — if handled by a qualified professional — will do wonders for dirty carpets. When choosing between carpet cleaning machines for steam cleaning – you will have the choice of a portable unit or a carpet cleaning truck mount unit. Carpet cleaning truck mounts are very strong and good, but the portable carpet cleaning equipment has come a long way in terms of closing the gap withe productivity. Not only do professional carpet cleaners have far more powerful equipment than you’re likely to buy or rent, they have far more experience removing stains. Carpet cleaning prices may vary widely for essentially the same service, so shop carefully.
