So what is carpet dry cleaning and how does it work? Carpet dry cleaning is the generic term given a system of carpet cleaning called bonnet cleaning. Carpet dry cleaning is a low moisture system of carpet cleaning that has been the system of choice for most franchise models in the carpet cleaning industry.
Carpet dry cleaning became popular in the 1980’s as an alternative system of carpet cleaning that left the carpet ready use, nearly straight away. The results achieved in carpet dry cleaning are largely subject to the cleaning chemicals used in the process. This is because carpet dry cleaning relies on chemicals to break down the stains in the carpet and release the dirt, rather than flushing the carpet with water. Logically, the more effective the carpet cleaning chemicals, the better the results. Most carpet dry cleaning companies have proprietary carpet dry cleaning chemicals that are closely guarded secrets.
The first step with carpet dry cleaning should always be a pre-vacuum to remove the dry soils. This should be the first step with all carpet cleaning processes otherwise when we put water with dry soils we get mud, which is heavier and harder to remove than dry soils. As a second step, specialised stain removal products may be required for stains that the dry cleaning solutions can’t remove. This usually includes acid and dye based stains such as tea, orange juice and urine. Third, the dry cleaning solutions are sprayed on to the carpet. In heavy traffic areas, the dry cleaning solutions should be agitated into the carpet with a carpet rake or oscillating brush. Your carpet dry cleaner will have a bucket of hot water containing a conditioning rinse in which the technician will immerse a think absorbent cotton pad, which will be rung out and placed on the carpet under a rotary machine. The rotary machine is essentially a modified high speed floor polisher which spins the pad around at high speed on the carpet. The stains and dirt which up the fibres, onto the pad and the pads are continually changed in the cleaning process.
The conditioning rinse used should be a combination of acids that neutralise the caret dry cleaning solutions and leave the carpet at a pH of 5 to 6. This is important because it is the pH range at which the carpet is initially set, and by restoring the chemical balance to the carpet, we give the carpet back its natural colour and brightness. As a final step, the carpet should be groomed to ensure the carpet looks even and to promote drying.
The primary benefit of carpet dry cleaning is that the carpet is ready to use straight away. In each room only about a litre of moisture is used. The moisture will generally evaporate quickly because of the heat in the cleaning process. A good carpet dry cleaning will also remove more stains than steam cleaning processes giving an excellent cleaning result
