1. Which method do you use for cleaning carpets?

Hot Water Extraction (HWE) is the industry standard for carpet cleaning and is recommended by most carpet manufacturers. Also known as steam cleaning, it’s also commonly referred to in other ways. The carpet is then simultaneously cleaned with a cleaning solution, and vacuumed up.

A second method, known as low-moisture, dry, shampooing, encapping or encapping is not recommended for residential carpet cleaning. A HOST machine is one example. It can be rented from your local store. Low-moisture carpet cleaning may improve the appearance of your carpets but it doesn’t actually remove contaminants (pet wastes, mold mites and bacteria) from your carpets. This can leave these contaminants behind for you and your family. Additionally, because there is no flushing action, heavy sediments (sand for one) are left behind and can grind away at carpet fibers. This will reduce the carpet’s lifespan. Low-moisture cleaning can be useful for commercial carpet maintenance, but HWE is the best choice for cleaning carpets in your home.

2. Are you a truckmount equipment user?

This is the machine that a carpet cleaner uses to clean your carpets. Some cleaners use an electric motor to clean your carpets. These portable units don’t offer the same heat, rinse, or vacuum recovery (crucial for soil removal, drying times, and so on) as a truckmount unit.

Portable vacuums can also pollute your home’s air, as they are generally unfiltered and blow contaminated air directly into your home.

A truckmount machine is one that is mounted permanently in the van of the cleaner and is powered by its own power supply. Truckmount machines provide the heat, vacuum, and flushing necessary to clean your carpets thoroughly and dry them quickly. Carpet cleaning is easier with truckmount equipment.

3. What time will it take for my carpets dry?

This question is often asked and it is extremely important. It is important to understand how long it takes for carpets to dry before you can use them. Long drying times can be a problem, but they also indicate how clean your carpets are. Because soil is liquified, and then vacuumed up by HWE (steam-cleaning), it is crucial to ensure that the carpets are dry completely. It is a fact that the carpet will retain more dirt the wetter it is. The carpets will be more susceptible to mold and mildew if they are left wetter than usual. It is best to dry your carpets within 1 to 2 hours. Drying time of 6 hours is common, while drying time of 8 hours or more is unacceptable.
