What is the best carpet cleaning method?
There are several methods but two of the basic methods are the wet and dry methods. The term dry cleaning is misleading since all methods use some amount of water. And there is no similarity to the dry cleaning method that is used to clean clothing.
One of the more popular so-called dry methods used is referred to as dry-chem or encapsulation. The most popular cleaning method is known as Steam Cleaning or Hot water extraction.
The process has a prespotting solution that is applied to the carpet but it is then rinsed out with very hot water (once water is heated up to 120°F every 15°F-17°F degree temperature rise doubles the waters power to clean, the water itself can become a very aggressive cleaner), so no chemicals are left behind. This is the method we use and is the method that is recommended by Shaw Carpet Ind. and DuPont as well as all the other large manufacturers also recommend this, to honor their warranties.
