Is Your Carpeting Getting a Good Clean?
Carpet cleaning is something you can do yourself with the right equipment and training. Although not a difficult task, it can be very time consuming as well. Proper preparation and proper materials are also important.
Machines used for carpet cleaning are called “EZ-Rinsers”. These machines take care of every step of cleaning a carpet. After vacuuming the floor, the cleaning machine squeezes the vacuum to the carpets. With an EZ-Rinser, the carpet gets thoroughly cleaned, saving you a lot of time.
There are two basic types of carpet cleaning machines used today. One is the wet/dry carpet cleaner. This uses a low-pressure pump to suck up water from the carpeting and traps it in a tank that is placed underneath the machine. When the machine begins to work, the water, after collecting into the tank, is then sprayed onto the carpeting. The dry part of the carpet is then removed by pulling out the vacuum.
There are also industrial wet/dry carpet cleaners. The carpet is taken to the cleaning machine first and it is then dried in the drying chamber. In some cases, a chemical and heat combination is used to dry the carpeting. When the carpet is dry, it is then pulled out of the dry chamber. It is then ready for the next vacuum.
For the wet/dry carpet cleaners, vacuum cleaners are used. They are also referred to as “Pullip vacuum cleaners”. The vacuum cleaner has one or more heads. The heads work like the fingers on your hands. A brush works to grab the carpet and lifts it out of the way while it is being vacuumed.
It is important to wash the brushes regularly to prevent problems. The dust from the dirt is sucked into the brushes and can be harmful to people. Keep the brushes clean by spraying them with liquid detergent and placing them in the dishwasher. Disinfect the heads too. Clean them with soap solution or bleach as needed.
The best way to get a thorough carpet clean is with the use of hot water extraction. This is done by using a hose and using water at a high pressure. This method is used for removing tough stains, but it can also remove dirt. It is great for the homes of those who want their floors to look great but don’t want to spend the money for an expensive carpet cleaner. They can simply place it on the floors and let it do its job.
If you don’t have the time to invest in high quality carpets, consider hiring someone to do it for you. It can be quite costly and time consuming to do it yourself. Just remember that not all carpet cleaners are the same. Make sure you are doing it right by reading reviews and having all the information that you need before you make a final decision.
