Routine vacuuming helps keep your carpeting clean by removing dust and dirt from the top layers; however, grime, germs, allergens, and other contaminants get trapped deep in the carpet where your vacuum can't reach. Over time these pollutants accumulate, and they can even make you and your family sick! That's why it's important to have your carpets deep cleaned annually. Carpet cleaning removes both surface dirt and deeply embedded dirt for a total clean-meaning fresh-looking, healthy carpets! But carpet cleaning isn't a job for amateurs: to get your carpets and rugs completely clean without causing damage requires knowledge, training, and specialized tools.
Leave your carpet cleaning jobs to the professionals and you'll get beautiful, expert results!
The concern with most do-it-yourself carpet cleanings is how clean you're really getting the carpet. Without specialized carpet cleaning equipment and products, homeowners simply aren't able to remove the grime trapped within their carpeting-and if you can't get it all the way clean, what's the point! Professional carpet cleaning uses truck-mounted hot water extraction to thoroughly cleanse your carpets. With a combination of pressurized hot water, eco-friendly cleaning agents, and rapid extraction, these machines can eliminate practically all of the contaminants embedded in your carpeting.
Carpet Cleaners Hawaii can even apply a stain protection treatment to keep your carpets pristine longer.
And, because the hot water extraction system applies the cleansers and then quickly extracts them out, your carpet is left clean and only a little damp. This is crucial because over saturating your carpeting dramatically increases drying time; if your carpet stays wet too long it can begin to mold and mildew, creating new health problems! While amateur carpet cleaning jobs can take days to dry, a professionally cleaned carpet is usually dry in under 12 hours.
The Most Overlooked Solution For Carpet Cleaning Hawaii
Many people just pick up the phone and call any so called professional carpet cleaning company. They get their references from a circular or a flyer that was dropped in their letterbox. The carpet cleaning company that you choose deserves a little thought and attention. There should be a few considerations before you choose which commercial cleaning company to go with when next get your carpets cleaned. A few questions to ask are:
1. Will the carpet cleaning chemicals harm my carpet in any way?
Carpets are formed from individual fibers and generally the chemicals used to clean carpets do not break down or harm these fibers. More damage is done by allowing grime, dust and dirt to build up on your carpets. That is what shortens your carpets lifespan. By regularly getting a professional commercial cleaning company to steam clean your carpets, this will keep your carpets looking the best they possibly can. It will also allow them to last longer and in turn save you money in the long run.
2. Are the chemicals used to clean my carpets safe for my family and pets?
This is a very important question to get an answer to while you are researching which commercial cleaning company to hire. Lately there are more and more people who are concerned about the dangers of chemicals used inside their homes.
A question to ask them is do they use biodegradable and non toxic chemicals? Obviously, the more information you know about the chemicals they use on your carpets, the more comfortable you will feel about living in your home after the steam cleaning has been done. Keep in mind though that the companies that use harmless cleaning solutions, might turn out to be a little more expensive. But it is worth your peace of mind especially when it comes to the well being of your family and pets.
3. What's the best way to choose a good commercial cleaning company to clean my carpets?
Most of the cheaper carpet cleaning companies hire contractors with little consideration given to their qualifications and experience. The more respectable carpet cleaning companies thoroughly train their technicians before letting them loose on anyone's expensive carpets. That should be piece of mind for you when they are in your home. This extra knowledge they receive while in training, will assist them in treating even difficult carpet stains with special non toxic or harmful solutions. So the crucial thing here is that when you are researching potential commercial cleaning companies, it is important to ask if their employees or contractors go through any type of training.
It doesn't matter if you are looking for someone to regularly clean your carpets, selling your home or you're moving into a new house. If you do you homework and research, it will pay off. Doing that will ensure you receive the quality service you and your carpets deserve.
Carpet Cleaning Tricks and Tips
There is a lot of information, sometimes very confusing information, available regarding the different methods of carpet cleaning. The method known as VLM or Very Low Moisture carpet cleaning is probably one of the most misunderstood. In this article, I would like to clear up some of the misunderstandings and explain the benefits of VLM.
Low moisture carpet cleaning is sometimes referred to as "dry cleaning", which it is not. Dry carpet cleaning involves spreading a dry compound, about the consistency of corn meal onto the carpet. The compound is then worked into the carpet, allowing it to absorb any soil and dirt present which can then be vacuumed away. This method can be effective and leaves behind no moisture or residue, but unless a very thorough vacuuming is done a lot of the dry compound can remain and cause build up in the carpet.
VLM is also frequently compared with Hot Water Extraction cleaning; more commonly know as "steam cleaning". HWE is the most aggressive form of carpet cleaning and the best method on carpets that can be described as trashed. In this process, hot water usually combined with some sort of cleaning agent is forced under pressure into the carpeting and then extracted using powerful industrial vacuums, either truck mounted or in a portable machine. This is done with a tool known as a "wand". HWE provides the most thorough and deepest cleaning for carpets. However, due to the high volume of water, carpets can be left saturated with water if proper care is not taken during extraction. Also, the volume of water and high heat can damage some carpets.
Low moisture carpet cleaning combines some of the best qualities of the other two methods. With VLM, cleaning agents are mixed with water and then lightly sprayed onto the carpeting. There is just enough moisture present to activate the cleaning agents and interact with the soil. After the detergent is allowed enough time to dwell, a rotary floor machine or another machine known as a cylindrical rotating brush machine is used to work the cleaning agents into the carpet and loosen the soil and other contaminants. Now with this method, some of the soil and detergent is removed by the brushes or pad, but quite a bit can remain in the carpet. By using encapsulating cleaning agents, this method becomes extremely effective. After, agitating the carpet the remaining soil becomes "encapsulated" in the cleaning agents as it dries. The dried detergent and soil can then be easily removed during a thorough post vacuuming.
While all carpet cleaning methods can be effective and have their strengths, low moisture carpet cleaning is very effective way to regularly maintain your carpets without using excessive moisture. Keep in mind this method is best used on commercial carpeting or any other short pile carpet. It is also best used carpet that would not be described as trashed.
Thanks for reading. I hope you find the information helpful in deciding which cleaning method is best when choosing a carpet maintenance plan.
