1. What cleaning method is best for carpets?

Hot Water Extraction, also known as steam cleaning, is the carpet manufacturer's preferred method of carpet cleaning. This involves rinsing the carpet with a cleaning product and then vacuuming it up.

For residential carpet cleaning, another method is called low-moisture or dry cleaning. One such machine is the HOST, which can be rented in local stores. Low-moisture cleaning is good for improving the appearance of carpets. However, it does not remove contaminants such as pet waste, dust mites or mold from carpets. These things can be left behind in carpets for you to clean and maintain. Furthermore, no flushing action is performed, so heavier sediments, such as sand, are left behind to damage your carpet fibers. HWE is the preferred method for cleaning carpets at your home. Low-moisture cleaning is good for commercial carpets.

2. Are you familiar with Truckmount Equipment

This refers to the actual machine a carpet cleaner will use to clean your carpets. Some cleaners use an electrically powered machine, which is either brought in to your home or placed outside your doors. These "portable units" don't usually provide the same heat or rinsing (essential for soil removal and drying times), as a truckmount model.

These portable machines can also pollute the indoor air quality of your home because the vacuum system is usually unfiltered and blows contaminated vapor directly into your home.

A truckmount machine is one that is permanently attached to the cleaner's van. It runs off its own power supply. Truckmount machines provide heat, vacuuming, and flushing to thoroughly clean your carpets. Truckmount equipment makes carpet cleaning easy.

3. How long will it take for my carpets dried?

This is an important question, which is frequently asked. How long does it take to walk on your carpets? Long drying times not only make it difficult but can also be an indicator of how well your carpets have been cleaned. Because soil is liquified after which it is vacuumed up using HWE (steam washing) to remove as much moisture as possible. This is because the soil contains liquified dirt. The simple truth is that dirt will be left behind the wetter your carpet gets. You have a better chance of mildew or mold developing in your carpets the longer it is wet. Drying time should be between one and two hours, with a minimum of six hours. Any drying time exceeding 8 hours is unacceptable.
