Carpet Cleaning Method - Steam Cleaning
Extraction cleaning, also known as steam cleaning, is the most popular and most effective carpet cleaning method used by carpet cleaning Minneapolis experts and in general today. Consumers can buy steam carpet cleaning machines at department stores, or they can rent them at many do it yourself retail outlets. Another route is to hire a professional carpet cleaning service.
Professional carpet cleaning such as Minneapolis carpet cleaning services typically use much more powerful extraction equipment - so powerful that they are mounted on trucks or vans rather than towed around in the home.
This process entails jetting streams of steam onto the carpet to loosen stubborn dirt from the carpet's base and fibers while simultaneously extracting all moisture and debris into a waste receptacle. Both the application of the steam and its extraction, are equally important. If too much moisture is applied, or if too little moisture is extracted, drying will be long and inefficient. Moist carpets are breeding grounds for mold.
Another carpet cleaning method used by carpet cleaning Minneapolis is microencapsulation. In this method, a special cleaning solution is applied to the carpet. It attaches itself to dirt and when it dries, it forms a crystal around dirt particles. Once dry, the carpet is vacuumed and the crystal encased dirt is vacuumed away. The microencapsulation formula can be applied to the carpet by spraying or worked through the carpet with a brush.
Microencapsulation is reminiscent of once popular carpet shampooing. In this method, a shampoo (usually foam) was applied to the carpet, allowed to dry, and then vacuumed away. Carpet shampoos, however, were found to leave behind a sticky residue which actually encouraged subsequent staining. Microencapsulation has not been associated with this phenomenon.
