Published on Saturday, 25 July 2009Chemical carpet
cleaning is the process of using certain chemicals to clean the carpets. These chemicals break down the stain particles and remove it from the carpet.
In this process, there is no need to wet the carpet. So it is a dry chemical cleaning method. Chemical carpet cleaning method is used to remove stains that cannot be removed by the usual cleaning process, like ink, pet stains, etc. This type of cleaning is better than steam cleaning because the mild moisture remaining on the carpet after steam cleaning can cause stinky smell. It is always advisable to perform a chemical cleaning process soon after the stain happens rather than keeping it for long and letting seep through to the surrounding fibres. How Moisture Works in Chemical Cleaning Chemical carpet cleaning is not an entirely dry process. The chemicals require some amount of moisture to work well. It actually uses a controlled moisture technique and is a dry process when compared to steam cleaning. How chemical carpet cleaners work is quite interesting. The granules or powder spreads over the stained area and goes down to the carpet fibre base. During this, the dirt and stains get dissolved. This dissolved dirt and components are held in suspension or get absorbed by the agent used for cleaning and is sucked up by the vacuum cleaner. Hot carbonation extraction is a type of chemical carpet cleaning method. This process removes the stains and your carpet is ready within one or two hours. Types of Chemical Carpet Cleaners The types of chemical carpet cleaners are spot cleaners, difficult stain removers, odour eliminators, emergency cleaners, and so on. Depending on your needs, you can buy these and it would not be too costly. But always remember to take the safety measures while cleaning your carpet with chemicals. There are also eco-friendly carpet-cleaning chemicals available in the market now.More news
