Methods of Carpet Cleaning and Equipment.

STEAM CLEANING (HOT WATER EXTRACTION) Sunset Method....


The term steam cleaning is derived from the original concept of the equipment first utilized in the steam extraction process. The airflow used is measured in CFM (cubic feet per minute) indicating how much air volume is moved per minute. Truck mounts compared to portables seem to work great if worked properly by the technician. most people believe that a truck mount can out perform anything else but it really comes down to the pre-treatment and experience of the technician. The process of steam cleaning includes the injection of a hot cleaning solution under pressure while extracting at the same time. I believe that this style of carpet cleaning is the only true method of deep cleaning your carpet. The practice of pre conditioning should be utilized in all instances of heavy soiled areas and an enzyme to break down bacteria and food stains.


Advantages


Steam Cleaning is recognized by most professionals, carpet manufacturers and fiber producers as today's preferred method for the most efficient soil removal. present state of the art equipment enables high rates of production and less residue, provided proper chemicals (we prefer all natural green) are used.


DISADVANTAGES


Requires high level of operator skill and longer drying times (we recommend using an air dryer) High equipment and maintenance costs A know how of reducing temperatures and psi volume specific to carpets.


DRY FOAM SHAMPOO


Dry foam carpet cleaning is a version of the shampoo method. the tem "dry" is to describe a low amount of liquid usually a 10% liquid to 90% air. It uses special equipment that whips up the shampoo liquid into a foam before its applied to the carpet. Some dry equipment is also equipped with a vac system that recovers the foam and sucks it up.


Advantages:


fast drying times
Minimal skill needed
Looks clean on top surfaces
covers large areas fast
low moisture levels


Disadvantages


Moderate level of soil removal
little or no extraction capability
periodic hot water extraction is needed after the fact with dry vacuuming


ROTARY EXTRACTION (SHAMPOO EXTRACTION)


A newer way of extracting soil using a rotary machine. There is many benefits to using this type of method it takes advantage of both rotary shampooing and steam cleaning. Rotary extraction,with its simultaneous foam generation and vacuum extraction, will remove the soil while it is still in suspension.


Advantages


Labor consolidation while converting two steps into one. Superior soil removal by operating within the limited timeframe of soil suspension. fast drying times usually within 1-1.5 hours and works well on commercial carpets.


Disadvantages


A newer way of extracting soil using a rotary machine. There is many benefits to using this type of method it takes advantage of both rotary shampooing and steam cleaning. Rotary extraction,with its simultaneous foam generation and vacuum extraction, will remove the soil while it is still in suspension.
