Brandon Florida Carpet Cleaning Companies Use Different Cleaning Processes

Monday, May 16th, 2011

Before you hire a carpet cleaning company in Brandon, Florida, or anywhere else in Hillsborough County, you should understand the different kinds of cleaning processes that commercial carpet cleaners use.

The more you know, the better decision you can make when you choose a carpet cleaning company in Brandon, Lutz or Wesley Chapel, Florida.

There are four basic cleaning processes that carpet cleaning companies use:

  • Dry chemical carpet cleaning – The carpet cleaning tech sets a pad on your carpet and using spins the pad with a machine. When the pad has absorbed as much dirt from the carpet as possible, another pad is applied to the carpets. Using a dry chemical process is like trying to wipe dirt out of your carpet with a giant towel. It’s not the process that most carpet manufacturers recommend to clean your home’s carpets.
  • Dry foam carpet cleaning – Carpet cleaning companies that use this method put a cleaning chemical on your carpets and allow it to dry. The theory is that dirt sticks to the wet chemical. First of all, the process can leave a residue on your home’s carpet. Second, it does not work as well as other methods. Would you put shampoo in your hair, let it dry, and then vacuum out the dirt? Cleaning processes that use rinsing and extraction work the best on carpet.
  • Dry compound carpet cleaning method – Companies that use this method sprinkle a carpet cleaning compound on your carpets and then brush it in with a machine. The mixture is supposed to attract dirt before it is vacuumed out of the carpet.
  • Hot water extraction carpet cleaning – Hot water extraction is the method that most carpet manufacturers recommend because it works the best. We pre-treat the carpet with a cleaner and then rinse with hot water that is forced deep into the carpet and sucked out using very high pressure. The heat and pressure generated by truck-mounted commercial equipment is much better than that generated by the DIY hot water extraction carpet cleaning machines rented at home improvement stores. Hot water extraction works so well because the water suspends dirt in solution and high pressure suction removes it leaving clean, fresh-smelling carpets.

Remember that carpet makers require professional cleaning of your home’s carpets every 12-18 months to maintain the warranty. At National Floor Care Specialists, our hot water extraction carpet cleaning will keep your warranty in force.

Visit us at Deep Clean your Carpets today serving Lutz, Wesley Chapel, Brandon, Valrico, and all of Tampa Bay

Today we cleaned carpets and tile in lutz, Florida 33558. We encountered soil filtration lines around the baseboards and several coffee stains.

If you have light colored carpet, you may have experienced these dark lines that appear on the carpet. This soiling is called filtration soiling because it comes from air passing through the carpet as it is attempting to get through the crack between the carpet and the baseboard or under a closed door. As the air passes through the edge of the carpet pile, this microscopic soiling is deposited there.

This occurs over a significant period of time and is not noticed until a build up has occurred.

This type of soiling is difficult to remove because the soil particles are so fine that they penetrate deep into the carpet pile, sometimes into the backing of the carpet.

Can it be removed? Sometimes. With special products, time and effort, reasonable results can sometimes be achieved.

To help prevent filtration soiling, vacuum and wipe the edges of the carpeting on a regular basis. Be careful around the tack strip on the edge of the carpeting, it could nick your fingers!

If you are in need of this type of Cleaning we have special products to remove these types of stains.
