GETTING a carpet cleaning Edmonton company is as simple as looking for the letter" C" in the Directory. But finding a carpet-cleaning technique that gets the job done for you mightn"t be so effortless.
“ There are several different carpet-cleaning methods being used in the present day," said Katie Buyers, spokeswoman for the Carpet and Rug Institute, an industry advocacy company based in the USA " All 5 work, just as long as the participant carrying out the cleaning knows what they"re doing.".
Ms. Buyers explained that the various techniques include steam, dry or foam extraction; rotating shampoo and the absorbent-pad technique.
The hot water technique– what many customers mean when they share they are getting their rug or carpets" steam shampooed"– uses a piece of equipment that sprays a hot detergent mixture into the carpets and rugs, and then instantly vacuums it away.
The drawback to the hot-water procedure, Ms. Buyers said, is that if it is not done right, the carpet and carpet pad can get doused, as a consequence supplying a birthplace for mold and mustiness. In addition, she claimed, if a bit too much solvent is applied, or if all the detergent is not removed, the carpet will become dirtier sooner. Soap left behind in a carpet or rug, she said, functions as a magnet for fresh dirt.
Using the dry extraction procedure, alternatively, a powder cleaning soap substance is combed into the carpet with particularly created machines. Dirt scraps in the carpet bond to the cleaning compound and are extracted by suction.
The foam-extraction solution, Ms. Buyers mentioned, employs the use of a suds as an alternative to dry chemicals and the suds is sucked out of the carpet while it is still moist.
With the rotary-shampoo solution, she mentioned, the cleansing solution is pushed into the carpet by a machine that utilizes rotating brushes to move the mixture into the threads. The resulting dirty foam is then cleared away by wet vacuuming.
Ms. Buyers said, there is the absorbent-pad, or" bonnet," method. With this method, she said, compounds are sprayed into the carpet or rug piles and after they have had a chance to work their magic by percolating the dirt up to the surface, the chemicals are removed by a piece of equipment with a huge wheel absorbent spinning brush like the one on the bottom of a commercial floor waxing machine.
In the wrong hands, however, the rotating brush could transform your deep-pile carpet into a shredded pile." The absorbent-pad technique must be used only by a correctly trained service specialist," Ms. Buyers stated.
And Tom Boyswaddle is just such a professional.
Our cleanup solution is so different from steam-cleaning and shampooing that it isn"t even remotely close," said Mr. Boyswaddle, the business owner of the ChemDry Northwest franchise in Peake"s Apex, va
With the ChemDry solution, he said, the cleansing solution is squirted onto the rugs and carpets then it begins to bubble, consequently" encapsulating" the dirt and lifting it to the top.
" It"s similar to using club soda to remove a mark out of your clothing," Mr. Boyswaddle said, detailing that for discolorations in the carpet, the ChemDry business has a complete array of spot removers.
And the best thing regarding our system is that we uses about a tenth of the fluid used with steam cleaning and shampooing. And that means your carpet will be dry in an hour instead of a day.".Beverly, Sherwood Park, Saint Albert, Lancaster Park, Bretona, Namao, Strathcona, Carbondale, Nisku, Ardrossan
