Shampooing Cleaning

An older method of carpet cleaning was popular until hot steam clean in the 1980s. While shampooing carpet may seem to clean heavily soiled carpet. However, the technology’s disadvantage of leaving behind a high amount of wet foam residues in the carpet. Taking a long time to dry, becomes sticky when it dries because of no rinsing after shampooing. And rapid re-soiling of carpet – makes this cleaning method less popular than others. A cleaning solution will be applied to the carpets using a circular brush. The rotary action of the brush truly creates a foam that traps the soil. However, this method consequently leaves a resoling residue.  In other words, there is better carpet cleaning Auckland methods.

Bonnet Chem-Dry Carpet Cleaning Method

In general, it uses chemicals and heat for the cleaning process to break down the “oily” build up in the fibre of the carpet. Absorbent pads rotate at high speed under a rotary machine definitely (floor polisher type unit called, bonnet buffer) picking up the soils and oils in the carpet. It’s like cleaning your hair with a towel. This carpet cleaning produces only a surface cleaning result as the process mainly involves cleaning the top part of the carpet fibre using a heavy machine with a spinning pad that has been immersed with a cleaning solution to absorb dirt from the carpet surface. This procedure has issues. As a result, it leaves a resoling residue and often damages the loop pile and wool carpets.

Spots and stain treatment of carpets, in addition to the solvent-based carpet cleaners solution, therefore the dry cleaning process. A carpet dry carpet cleaning service should also include the application of a neutralising rinse as well as sanitising and deodorising.

The product used in this method is foam. In detail, the unit generates the foam that uses brushes to rub the foam on the carpet. Thus, it is not effective clean at all. However, it may be considered convenient during work hours in an office. There are better carpet cleaning methods.

Absorbent Compound (encapsulation) Cleaning

Foam encapsulation uses synthetic detergents as a base that will crystallise into powder form when dries. Loosened dirt particles in carpet fibre will be encapsulated into powder when the applied cleaning foam dries and, finally, vacuumed or brushed when the foam dries after cleaning. Low-moisture encapsulation was developed, and endorsed by all major world carpeting manufacturers. It is our carpet cleaning Auckland industry’s latest initiative in green method technology, and we were the first in Auckland to offer it! There are better carpet cleaning methods. It leaves re-soiling residue in the fibres, so recleaning required soon after.
