HIRING a carpet cleaning Edmonton provider is as straightforward as finding the letter" C" in the Directory. Choosing a carpet-cleaning method that gets the job done for you mightn"t be so straightforward.
“ There"s five unique carpet-cleaning methods being used in today"s market," said Karyn Smuckers, spokeswoman representing the Carpeting and Shag Institute, an industry promotion association based in southern US " All of them work, provided the professional executing the cleaning knows what they"re doing.".
Ms. Smuckers explained that the various methods include hot-water, dry or foam extraction; rotating shampoo and the absorbent-pad strategy.
The steam method– what a large number of people mean when they proclaim they are getting their carpets" steam cleaned"– uses a device that sprays a very hot cleaning soap solution into the rugs and carpets, and after that straight away sucks it up.
The weakness to the steam approach, Ms. Smuckers said, is that if it"s not done right, the carpet and padding can get waterloged, consequently providing a breeding ground for mold and mustiness. Also, she claimed, if too much cleaner is used, or if all the detergent is not entirely taken out, the carpets and rugs will become dirtier faster. Cleaner left behind in a carpet and rug, she said, acts as a magnet for all new dirt.
Using the dry extraction process, alternatively, a powdered solvent blend is swept into the carpets and rugs with specially developed piece of equipment. Grime specks within the carpets and rugs bond to the cleaning compound and are eliminated by suction.
The foam-extraction system, Ms. Smuckers explained, employs the use of a froth as opposed to powdered compound and the suds is sucked off of the carpets and rugs while it"s still wet.
With the rotary-shampoo solution, she said, the washing fluid is forced into the carpets and rugs by a device that employs swiveling brushes to move the blend into the threads. The ensuing dirty suds is then gotten rid of by wet vacuuming.
Finally, Ms. Smuckers said, There"s the absorbent-pad, or" bonnet," process. With this approach, she said, compounds are sprayed into the carpet or rug fibers and right after they have an opportunity to work their magic by percolating the dirt up to the surface, the chemicals are removed by a piece of equipment with a big wheel absorbent spinning brush like the one on the bottom of a commercial floor polisher.
In the wrong hands, , the revolving brush can make your deep-pile carpets and rugs into a spotty mess." The absorbent-pad strategy should be used only by a correctly taught service professional," Ms. Smuckers said.
And Tom Boyswaddle is just such a pro.
Our cleansing solution is so distinct from steam-cleaning and shampooing that it isn"t even funny," said Mr. Boyswaddle, the business owner of the CHem clean Northwest team in Peake"s Summit, va
With the Carbonated solution, he said, the washing solution is shot on the carpeting then it begins to bubble, in doing so" encapsulating" the filth and carrying it to the surface.
" It"s just like using club soda to get a mark out of your t-shirt," Mr. Boyswaddle said, illustrating that for stains in the carpet, the Carbonated provider has a complete array of spot removals.
And the best thing concerning our system is that we use about one-tenth of the water used with steam-cleaning and shampoo. And that means your carpets and rugs will be dry in an hour instead of a day later.".Beverly, Sherwood Park, Saint Albert, Lancaster Park, Bretona, Namao, Strathcona, Carbondale, Nisku, Ardrossan
