Carpet Cleaning: What’s The Best Method?

Carpets, area rugs, and all different kinds of upholstery stain easily and quickly. For this reason, regular deep cleaning is a must if you want to keep your upholstered items clean and comfortable.

While cleaning these items might be a bit of a hassle, there are so many different companies offering carpet cleaning services using various techniques such as:

  • Dry-cleaning             
  • Hot water extraction
  • Steam cleaning etc.

When hiring these services, you’ll probably want a more suitable method for your carpet fabric type and to ascertain that it is an earth-friendly one.

Well, let’s explore the different capabilities of each technique.

  • Dry-cleaning                                                     
    The dry cleaning method is a very low-moisture cleaning solution. It goes beyond the normal vacuuming process, and it is a super safe method. It offers deep cleansing as it breaks down dirt and stains.
    The method is very effective, mainly if your carpet is in an area that experiences high traffic since it’s a fast, clean method and the drying is also quick.                         
  • Steam cleaning                                                                 
    Steam clean and hot water extraction have been used interchangeably, but they are two different cleaning processes.
    Steam cleaning uses actual steam, meaning the water has to be heated to a very high temperature, which helps convert it to the gas used for cleaning.
    This method helps kill germs and allergens, but it’s not overly effective since there’s no rinsing necessary, so basically, stains and soil may still remain on the carpet fabrics.
  • Hot Water extraction
    This is the most recommended. It effectively helps in deep cleaning and stain removal. While it requires hot water usage, the water is not heated to the point of turning to steam.
    However, it’s advisable not to use the hot water extraction method for natural fiber carpets and rugs since they can shrink or get damaged under high temperatures.           

So, which method do you prefer?                     

Whichever choice you settle on, seek professional cleaning; most of them are affordable, and the job will be done right and fast.
