If you’ve never cleaned a carpet yourself, you may not be aware that there are actually several different methods of carpet cleaning. Depending on the size of the area to be cleaned, the condition of the carpet, and the carpet type, your San Diego carpet may decide that one or more methods are best for them.
Foam Cleaning: Machines that clean carpets via foam work by spreading a highly concentrated foam carpet cleaning solution into the carpet and then removing it through high powered extraction.
Shampooing: Contrary to popular belief, carpet shampooing is a specific carpet cleaning technique, rather than a generic term for all types of carpet cleaning. Using this method, a concentrated shampoo liquid or foam is spread evenly throughout the carpet, and then activated with hot water and removed via extraction.
Hot Water Extraction: This is the method that your San Diego carpet cleaning service likely prefers to use, and is the method most commonly used and recommended by professionals. This method involves injecting the carpet with a solution of hot water and cleaning product and then extracting it directly out of the carpet once the dirt and debris has been absorbed.
Be sure to ask your San Diego carpet cleaning service which method is best for your carpet.
