Hiring commercial carpet cleaners to deep clean your business' carpets and upholstery is the best way to protect the investment you made in furnishing your business office.
Commercial carpet cleaners usually use one or more of the following carpet cleaning methods:.
Dry cleaning is a cleaning method that relies on the use of specialized equipment to apply chemical cleaning solutions. The term 'dry' should really be changed to 'low moisture', because the process does involve wetting the carpet with the appropriate product.
Carpet dry cleaning is not recommended for all carpet types. The results are inconsistent and the use of chemicals, which leave toxic residue and unpleasant fumes, are not environment friendly.
Carpet shampooing was on its way to obsolescence until the invention of microencapsulated cleaning polymers. Shampooing is somewhat similar to dry cleaning: it entails applying a cleaning product to the carpet, distributing it with a brush or mop, allowing it to dry and then removing it by vacuuming. First generation carpet shampoos seemed to do more damage than good - application was very messy and complete removal was practically impossible. Residue from the process actually attracted and trapped dirt, resulting in carpets that spotted and stained easier than before they were cleaned.
New generation carpet shampoos are made with special polymers that form crystals around dirt particles. These encapsulated cleaners are more efficient and easier to remove, however, it must be noted that it may take several vacuuming sessions to completely remove the encapsulated crystals from the carpet.
Steam cleaning (also known as extraction or hot water extraction): This method is by far the most efficient of all commercial carpet cleaning processes. The cleaning wand sends out pressurized jets of steaming water to loosen embedded dirt, remove spots and stains, deodorize and refresh your carpet. Since steam is a form of water, and too much water is bad for your carpet, the steam cleaner removes the resulting moisture along with the loosened pollutants via super-strength extractor hoses. Most commercial carpet cleaners enter your home with nothing more than the steam wand and vacuum hoses, which are attached to the heavy truck mounted machinery. Portable units are also an essential part of commercial cleaning, used in multi-floor buildings or anywhere where greater accessibility is required.
When you are trying to decide on which commercial carpet cleaners to hire, don't be shy, ask them about their cleaning methods. Make sure you hire the provider for carpet cleaning in Tampa that uses the right method for your needs.
* Note: upholstery fabric responds very well to the same type of cleaning methods. Commercial carpet cleaners generally offer carpet cleaning, rug cleaning, and upholstery cleaning services for a complete office solution. Most carpet cleaning services can give you attractive price incentives for ordering more than once cleaning service on the same day.
