In a perfect world, carpets would always be clean, but the fact remains: we have to walk on them. Even the most careful treatment cannot avoid children who spill, teenagers who are teenagers, and adults or pets who track dirt in from outside. Just day to day use causes carpets to become darkened and stained. No matter how good one is to carpets, they will need carpet cleaning. Adelaide has the people necessary to get the job done – to make any carpet can look as close to good as new as possible.
There are many ways to clean a carpet, but three are the most common. These are steam cleaning, dry cleaning, and do-it-yourself (DIY) cleaning which is done without professional help.
Steam Carpet Cleaning
Most people who give any thought to carpet cleaning turn to steam cleaning as their first choice. It works perfectly well for most carpets. Not only does it clean, but it kills dust mites in the carpet and removes those stains and contaminants that have been deeply embedded into the carpet for years.
Steam cleaning needs a machine, ideally used by professional carpet cleaners. These machines can be portable, but they work at their best when mounted on a truck. First, the carpet must be vacuumed. After this, special cleaning agents are sprayed on the carpet. This agent bonds itself to dirt in the carpet. Once this is done, high-pressure water is sprayed on the carpet and vacuumed out. Once these steps are completed, the carpet will look like new. Steam cleaning allows a carpet to last much longer than it would have otherwise.
Dry Carpet Cleaning
This is not as deep a cleaning as steam cleaning. In fact, it is sometimes known as a “surface cleaning”. As with a steam cleaning, the carpet is first vacuumed. The cleaning agent is not applied to the carpet, but to the cleaning machine, which is then dragged over the carpet. There is a pad, or bonnet, on the machine that rubs the carpet and removes the dirt. Then the carpet is vacuumed again. The advantage of dry cleaning is how quickly it dries, which is often important for carpets that are often walked upon.
Do It Yourself Carpet Cleaning
There are some places, often supermarkets, which allow customers to hire their own machines. These use hot water extraction, but it is often better to let a professional operate these machines. It’s too easy for someone untrained to over-saturate the carpet as well as the underlay. The carpet may look clean at first, but eventually mold will grow, creating odors and worse problems than any stains.
There are many methods of carpet cleaning. Adelaide has someone who can do it quickly and professionally, no matter what preference a customer might hold.
