Steam cleaning hot water soil extraction cleaning method is recommended by most specialised carpet manufacturers as the best and safest way to clean and care for your carpet. Using the power of steam to lift dirt from fibres through hot water extraction.
Steam Cleaning can also be used on upholstery cleaning and tile and grout cleaning not just on carpet and rugs.
Steam cleaning is also an excellent cleaning method. This method has a great flushing capability since it uses hot water to rinse the carpet, best performing if the mixture of water pressure and temperature is right.
Encapsulation cleaning (Dry Cleaning)
Encapsulation carpet cleaning method can also be used as an effective way to clean and protect your carpet. This method is effective on certain carpet fibres. If unsure on what method of cleaning is best suitable for your carpet our trained technician can recommend which method of cleaning is best suitable for your carpet.
The Process works by encapsulating or crystalising dirt, grim and soiling into very small crystals of dirt. Using less water then steam cleaning.
Encapsulation carpet cleaning also keeps carpets cleaner for longer periods of time compared to other methods. Also avoids the drying time of carpet shampoos, making the carpet immediately available for use. The use of encapsulation to create a crystalline residue that can be immediately (20-30 min. drytime) vacuumed (as opposed to the residue of wet cleaning systems, which generally requires an additional day before vacuuming) is a newer technology that has recently become an accepted method for commercial and residential deep cleaning.
