DISCOVERING a carpet cleaning Edmonton company is as easy as finding the letter" C" in the Directory. But hiring a carpet-cleaning technique that does the trick for your place might not be so effortless.
“ There is a few distinct carpet-cleaning options being used in the marketplace today," said Karyn Tooters, speaker for the Flooring and Tapestry Institute, an industry advocacy establishment based in Georgia " All five work, so long as the participant completing the cleaning knows what he"s doing.".
Ms. Tooters explained that the five approaches include hot-water, dry or foam extraction; revolving shampoo and the absorbent-pad procedure.
The hot water method– what a large number of people mean when they tell you they are getting their carpetings" steam shampooed"– uses a piece of equipment that applies a very hot soap blend into the carpets and rugs, and subsequently promptly sucks it up.
The drawback to the hot water approach, Ms. Tooters said, is that if it is not done correctly, the carpet and carpet pad can get bathed, in doing so producing a breeding ground for mold and mildew. She said, if too much detergent is used, or if all the cleaning soap is not removed, the carpet and rugs will get dirtier faster. Cleaner left behind in a carpet, she said, acts as a magnet for fresh dirt.
By using the dry extraction solution, instead, a powdered detergent blend is combed in to the carpet and rugs with particularly created machines. Dirt bits in the carpet and rugs connect to the cleaner and are eliminated by vacuum cleaner.
The foam-extraction system, Ms. Tooters said, employs the use of a suds instead of dry compound and the froth is vacuumed off of the carpet and rugs while it is still damp.
With the rotary-shampoo approach, she shared, the washing fluid is forced into the carpet and rugs by a machine that utilizes swiveling brushes to move the compound into the fibers. The resulting dirt-filled suds is then gotten rid of by wet vacuuming.
Ms. Tooters said, there is the absorbent-pad, or" bonnet," technique. With this technique, she said, chemicals are sprayed into the carpets and rugs fibers and right after they got an opportunity to work their magic by percolating the dirt up to the surface, the chemicals are removed by a device with a big circle absorbent spinning brush like the ones on the bottom of a commercial floor waxing machine.
In the wrong hands, , the rotating brush can make your deep-pile carpet and rugs into a spotty mess." The absorbent-pad procedure should be used only by a properly qualified cleaning pro," Ms. Tooters stated.
And Phil Boyswaddle is just such a man.
Our cleansing approach is so different from steam cleaning and brushing that it isn"t even funny," said Mr. Boyswaddle, the manager of the ChemDry south east team in Peake"s Tip, va
With the Carbonated approach, he said, the washing solution is sprayed over the carpets and rugs where it begins to bubble, thus" emulsifying" the grime and lifting it to the top.
" It"s just like using club soda to get a stain out of your shirt," Mr. Boyswaddle said, illustrating that for stains in the carpet, the Carbonated agency has an entire array of blemish removals.
And the greatest thing about our equipment is that it uses about one tenth of the water used with steam-cleaning and shampoo. And that means your carpet and rugs will be dry in one hour instead of a day.".Beverly, Sherwood Park, Saint Albert, Lancaster Park, Bretona, Namao, Strathcona, Carbondale, Nisku, Ardrossan
