Such small bacteria and dust particles may be loosened by modern steam cleaning but it does not completely remove them. Much of this residue is left behind as the carpet and air-dry upholstery.
In addition, humidity and heat will create the perfect atmosphere for rising mould and mildew as your carpet dries from the traditional steam cleaning. Both of these outcomes can pose potential health risks to your family, especially those with asthma or other breathing problems.
We remove even deep-seated debris and bacteria using high-tech hot water extraction. This enables us to provide a cleaner, healthier carpet and a healthier home environment.
Our Carpet Cleaning Methods
Cleaning carpets is a method of removing dust or stains from your carpet. Normally modern cleaning machines work on heated water or steam. Carpet cleaning may also involve spraying a protective barrier in the future intended to repel dirt or soil. What may be the correct procedure for you to wash your carpet? If you own a carpet, then cleaning the carpet will be a problem that you need to tackle. A specialist carpet cleaning company can advise you on your carpet’s recommended method.
Hot Water Extraction Method
We are using a highly efficient carpet cleaning machine for hot water extraction. It rinses your carpeted areas with hot water and a fabric-specific cleaning solution. Then, along with the dissolved dirt and grime, it removes the moisture (up to 95%). It is an effective method of stain removal as it can reach deep into the fabric to take care of the stains that are embedded in the padding.
Hot water extraction uses high-pressure hot water to rinse the carpet or upholstery fabrics, reaching deep inside to dislodge rough stains and messes. The energy involved also helps to kill bacteria, preserving the health of your friends.
Steam cleaning is recommended for most types of modern synthetic carpeting, high-traffic areas around the house, carpets in commercial buildings, and items which are deeply soiled and affected from stubborn, old stains. Depending on the room temperature, the drying time after a steam wash takes between 2 and 4 hours.
The following are types of carpet fabrics which can be steam cleaned:
An expensive and easily damaged fabric, very absorbent.
A most popular carpet fibre that is resistant to moisture and traffic.
Durable fabric but vulnerable to greasy stains that can be hard to remove.
Popular fabric that is easily cleaned and doesn’t shrink over time.
Resistant to stains and sunlight, but not as durable as nylon and polyester.
The method of rug sanitation depends on the type of rug you have and the fibre you have.
A standard cleaning procedure is necessary for seed, cotton and synthetic rugs. This involves carpet inspection, pH check of all stains, dry vacuuming, initial cleaning and pre-treatment of any stubborn marks and agitation with a rotary comb.
Then either hot water extraction or dry cleaning is used by the cleaners. Oriental, Persian, shag and silk rugs may require additional treatment, such as using special detergent for rug cleaning or grooming after the entire process has been completed.
City Cleaning’s engineers are fully trained. To ensure that the fabric is not damaged, they patch-test and determine the most suitable cleaning solution for your rug cleaning. They use safe shampoos and detergents that are not harsh on the fabric or at home. The procedure freshens and rejuvenates the colours of mats and rugs of all kinds.
Dry Carpet Cleaning
Heavily soiled places require pretreatment with emulsifiers that break the binding of soils to carpet fibres over a short period and are usually sprayed onto the carpet before the dry-cleaning process is used primarily.
Dry carpet cleaning techniques are mostly technically “very low humidity” (VLM) processes, relying on dry compounds complemented by application cleaning solutions, and are a significant factor for 24-hour commercial installations due in part to their very fast drying time.
Shampooing is the use of a motorised circular brush that introduces foaming cleaning products on the carpet surface and is scrubbed into the carpet next. Wet shampoo cleaning with rotary machines, followed by full wet vacuuming, was prevalent until around the 1970s, but with the advent of encapsulation, the industry’s understanding of shampoo cleaning shifted.
Rug Cleaning for All Your Tapestries, Shags, Runners and Throws
Enjoy Healthier And Cleaner Carpets With City Cleaning
Stagnant water gives rise to bacteria like mould. Steam washing uses high-pressure water to try to clean carpets with detergent. It leaves damp floorboards and underlays behind.
Dry cleaning uses a fraction of steam cleaner water and our proprietary carbonating solution bubbles up to the carpet layer with the dust. A much cleaner carpet and a safer house are equal to less heat and carbonation.
Key Benefits of Our Rug Treatment
How Do We Clean Rugs?
Our extensive workshop rug cleaning procedure will agitate the rug first and thoroughly remove loose dirt particles. Rugs will then go through the cleaning process to brush biodegradable “sponge-like” material into the rugs to remove the residual dirt in the rug.
The brushing motion would also help open and lift flattened carpet fibre while inside-out washing the rug, reviving its softness. Chemical effective removal of stain would be added to areas where the carpet holds visible stains. The solution would be left in the carpet to soak dirt particles in the fabric and at the end of the carpet cleaning process will be thoroughly collected and discarded.
If the rug emits some unpleasant odour, our cleaning experts will recommend an odour control procedure that would require a few more days of treatment to ensure the neutralisation of unpleasant odour.
Finally, washed rugs will be sanitised using chemical-safe treatment to remove bacteria and other micro-organisms such as dust mites, moulds, fungi that may lie in the rugs.
How Frequent Should I Clean My Rug?
The recommended frequency of carpet cleaning would depend on rug use. If there is heavy traffic on your rug, kids/pets at home who can spillage or urine sometimes stain your rugs, then rugs should be washed 2 to 3 times a year.
If children or allergy sufferers are involved, rugs should be vacuumed daily and professionally cleaned at least twice a year, as rugs tend to contain high amounts of dust and dust mites that often cause allergies such as asthma, rhinitis, etc.
