There are many methods for cleaning carpet including: Rotary Shampoo, Carbonated Cleaning, Dry Powder, Encapsulation and Hot Water Extraction/Steam Cleaning. At Sunset, however, we recommend the use of two particular methods- Encapsulation and Steam Cleaning. Through out years of experience we found those two methods to give the best results without causing serious resoiling, damage to the carpet’s pile, or overwetting which causes jute straining, shrinkage and odor.
Our professionals will help you choose the most suitable technique based on the following factors:
- Carpet type
- Carpet age
- Time between cleanings
- Foot traffic
- How fast we need the carpet to be dry and ready for re-use
- The budget dedicated for the task
Carpet cleaning should be carried out by professionals. It is not a job that should be taken lightly. Inexperienced cleaning service providers may cause irrevocable damage to your carpet. The experts at Sunset Quality Cleaning are trained, experienced, insured and adequately equipped for your peace of mind.
Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning
This system uses a special encapsulating compound which contains both a cleaning agent and a “crystallizing” agent.
In this method, the encapsulated cleaning agent is worked into the carpet utilizing the agitation from a rotary brush machine. This action separates the soil from the fiber of the carpet and surround the soil particles with a polymer film which brittles upon drying and prevent soil from re-attaching to the carpet fiber. The resulted crystals of soil created will then be easily vacuumed away with a special vacuum. In addition, the polymer surrounds the fiber of the carpet and reduces the ability of soil particles to attach to the fiber in the future. This definitely results in cleaner carpet that will stay cleaner longer.
Encapsulation is ideal for commercial applications because it dries quickly, it is more economical, and can be done during work hours since it utilizes quieter machines.
Hot Water Extraction/Steam Carpet Cleaning
While other ways are considered “light surface cleaning”, Hot Water Extraction is “Deep Cleaning” that is capable of removing soil deeply stored without the need of using any special agent in the pile after cleaning.
In Steam Cleaning, a fine spray of solution of water and detergent is used to force dirt out of the carpet pile. The liquid contaminated with dirt is then sucked up by the vacuum slot fixed in front of the sprayer. This process is carried by either a truck-mounted unit or by a smaller portable system.
At Sunset, we recommend a thorough carpet cleaning to be administrated once a year. Our professionals will help you choose the best plan of action according to your needs, type of carpet, and use. A mix of both techniques may also be used to grant the best results possible.
