Even though you are relying on a carpet cleaning service to freshen the carpets throughout your home, you still need to choose the right cleaning method. Cleaning carpets is more than shampooing the carpets. Here are some of the methods available and advantages of each. 

Dry Foam

Dry foam is one method of cleaning carpets in a short period of time. Dry foam involves applying cleaners to your carpet and whipping them into a foam. The foam is rubbed into your carpets with the help of brushes. After a few minutes, a vacuum is used to remove the foam and dirt. 

This is one of the most inexpensive methods of cleaning your carpets. It also dries quickly because the cleaners only need small amounts of chemicals to clean. On the downside, dry foam is not the best method for removing deep down dirt in your carpet. If you have carpeting that needs deep cleaning, another method should be used. 

Wet Cleaning

Wet cleaning, or steam cleaning, is a method of getting rid of dirt that is deep within your carpets. Hot water is used to clean your carpet and vacuumed up after a few minutes. 

Even though it is a good way to get your carpets clean, wet cleaning takes a long time to dry. During the process, your carpets are exposed to a lot of water and chemicals. If you do opt for this method, it is important that you allow time for the carpet to dry. The cleaners might recommend that you leave your windows open and no one is allowed to step on the carpets until they are completely dry. 

Dry Cleaning with Powders

Dry cleaning with powders involves spreading cleaning agents on your carpets and using a rotating brush to clean the carpets. The agents are vacuumed up later by the cleaners. This is one of the simplest methods for cleaning a carpet and it dries quickly.

However, if you have carpets that are very plush, the cleaning agents can wind up trapped in the carpet fibers. It is also not a good method of cleaning carpets that require deep down cleaning.

If you are unsure of the cleaning method that you want used for your home, talk to carpet cleaners like Cleanbrite Carpet Cleaning. They can provide an assessment of your carpets and recommend the best method for your home based on your carpet, budget, and amount of work required.
