LOOKING FOR a carpet cleaning Edmonton professional service is as quick and easy as looking for the letter" C" in the Yellow Pages. But selecting a carpet-cleaning solution that works for you may not be so simple.
“ There"s 5 unique carpet-cleaning techniques being used in today"s market," said Kathryn Smuckers, spokesperson representing the Carpet and Tapestry Institute, an industry advocacy business organization based in the USA " All five work, just as long as the individual doing the cleaning knows what they"re doing.".
Ms. Smuckers explained that the 5 methods include hot-water, dry or foam extraction; rotating shampoo and the blotting procedure.
The steam system– what most consumers mean when they point out they are having their floors" steam washed"– works with a piece of equipment that fogs a steaming detergent solution over the carpeting, and then immediately sucks it up.
The weakness to the steam system, Ms. Smuckers said, is that if it is not done correctly, the carpet and padding can get waterloged, as a result providing a breeding place for mold and blight. Additionally, she explained, if an excessive amount of cleaning soap is used, or if all the detergent is not completely taken out, the carpeting will get dirtier quicker. Cleaner left behind in a carpet and rug, she said, acts as a magnet for fresh dirt.
Using the dry extraction solution, on the other hand, a powdered solvent substance is combed right into the carpeting with specifically created piece of equipment. Grime fragments in the carpeting connect to the cleaning compound and are removed by vacuuming.
The foam-extraction system, Ms. Smuckers explained, employs the use of a suds in place of powder compound and the foam is sucked away from the carpeting while it is still damp.
With the rotary shampoo procedure, she said, the cleansing mixture is pushed into the carpeting by a tool that employs revolving brushes to work the blend into the threads. The culminating dirt-filled lather is then removed by wet vacuuming.
Then Finally, Ms. Smuckers said, there is the absorbent-pad, or" bonnet," solution. With this method, she said, compounds are sprayed into the carpet or rug fibers and right after they have had a chance to work their magic by percolating the dirt up to the surface, the chemicals are removed by a machine with a huge wheel absorbent spinning brush like the one underneath of a commercial floor polisher.
In the wrong hands, however, the spinning brush could make your deep-pile carpeting into a puckered moonscape." The absorbent-pad procedure must be used only by an appropriately qualified service service provider," Ms. Smuckers stated.
And Phil Manwarren is just such a person.
Our cleaning up procedure is so unique from steam cleaning and shampooing that it isn"t even funny," said Mr. Manwarren, the operator of the CHem clean Northeast franchise in Clarks Tip, va
With the Carbonated procedure, he said, the cleansing solution is shot into the carpeting then it begins to bubble, in doing so" encapsulating" the dirt and carrying it to the surface.
" It"s similar to using club soda to remove a mark out of your clothing," Mr. Manwarren said, illustrating that for spills in the carpet, the ChemDry service provider has a complete array of stain cleaners.
And the greatest thing about our system is that we uses about one tenth of the fluid used with hot water and shampoo. And that means your carpeting will be dry in sixty minutes instead of a day later.".Beverly, Sherwood Park, Saint Albert, Lancaster Park, Bretona, Namao, Strathcona, Carbondale, Nisku, Ardrossan
