Selecting a Carpet Cleaning Method

These methods include dry-absorbent compounds, dry foam, extraction of hot water, rotating caps and rotary shampoos. Consult with the carpet supplier to decide which of these five approaches would be recommended. Many manufacturers can offer various warranties which may be voided if an improper method of cleaning is used. Visit us on Bliss Cleaning Horsham Carpet Cleaners.

One question that customers often ask is “How often will carpet be washed?” The average homeowner will have the carpet cleaned at least every 12-18 months. Cleaning of the carpet should be finished, however, until the carpet becomes soiled. Most soil has razor-like edges which cut fibers from the carpet. Such fibers take on a hazy or soiled hue when cut by such soils. Cleaning due to permanent damage to the fiber, will not remove the soiled appearance caused by this scarring. Regular extraction cleaning and daily vacuuming will reduce the amount of fiber damage done by the soiling before the visible appearance of the soil.

Another problem that many customers have with respect to carpet cleaning is the idea that the carpet will get soiled faster after the carpet has been washed. In several instances the concern is expressed by the carpet retailer. This concern stems from the early solutions used in carpet cleaning. “True soaps” were used for the cleaning during the early years of carpet cleaning. These soaps were made using coconut oils and other ingredients of natural origin. The coconut oils were bound to soil particles, which were then extracted while extracting the soap. These early soaps were very hard to remove and the soaps were often left in the carpet. These soaps continued to capture particles from the soil , causing rapid resoilment.

Detergents and Organic Products

Cleaning detergents from carpets today are specially formulated using synthetic materials. These detergents are particularly formulated with water molecules to hold a stronger attraction. These detergents are more likely to be absorbed when the water is added with soil particles attached to them.

Of course that is not guaranteed. Many synthetic detergents use oily solvents which are required to break down oily soils. Such sticky solvents appear to resoil tremendously. After reviewing hundreds of carpet cleaning products, we found only two that had the ability to generate resoil. OdoSolv spot lifter and prespray as well as another enzyme drug that only skilled cleaners can use. All of these items is one of the best cleaners available for general cleaning and removal of spots and they have a zero resoil capacity. In other words, once applied, you would expect the rate of soiling to be equal to that of plain water. Any other detergent we’ve tested might make that argument.

The average homeowner will have a minimum of every 12-18 months cleaned of their carpet. Cleaning of the carpet should be finished, however, until the carpet becomes soiled. Most soil has razor-like edges which cut fibers from the carpet. Such fibers take on a hazy or soiled hue when cut by such soils. Carpet washing due to irreversible damage to the fabric, does not erase the soiled look caused by this scarring.
