Steps for Deep Carpet Cleaning
Step 1. Vacuuming
This is an often skipped, but critically important step. A powerful vacuum cleaner is used to make certain dry soil is completely removed. Steam cleaning without vacuuming can cause dirt to be flushed down to the bottom of the carpet. This dirt can reemerge as the carpet dries. This is a process known as "wicking".
Step 2. Pre-spraying
Did you know that most discount carpet cleaners put cleaning agents in their "rinse" water? This is like a person taking a shower in soapy water without a clean rinse afterwards!
Why do discount cleaners do this? To save the time for doing both a CLEAN and a RINSE. They have to cut corners to do the job more cheaply, and often the homeowner cannot tell the difference until weeks later...when the soapy residue has quickly attracted new dirt. NOTE - This is the source of the household myth that you should never get your carpets cleaned because they will just get dirt quickly again.
We clean carpet the right way at Dayton Gem City Carpet Cleaning. We prespray
the entire carpet with a hot cleaning solution IN ADDITION to rinsing. We leave it on for 20
minutes to allow it to penetrate deep into your carpet fibers to kill germs
and bacteria and loosen all grease / oil and general soiling that has attached
itself to the carpet. This cleaning solution is then later removed with the clean rinse.
Step 3. Rotary Scrubbing
scrubbing is the process of working the surfactants deep into the fibers. Scrubbing is only needed for heavily soiled
carpet. However, if the fibers have been significantly damaged or the carpet has not been protected, even this thorough cleaning may not remove traffic lanes.
Step 4. Stain Treatment
Any spots that that are left after scrubbing are given extra attention are treated expert stain removal specialists.
Step 5. Hot water extraction rinsing
A pH-balancing, clean hot water
rinse is sprayed under pressure and then vacuumed up along with dirt and soil.
Step 6. Protecting carpet
Protects carpets against acid-based stains like colored fruit drinks, soft drinks, gelatins etc. Revitalizes soil/stain protection on stain-resistant carpets. Protects against dirt, dust, mud and grime. Carpet manufacturers require protector in order to maintain your carpet warranty.
Step 7. Grooming carpet
an important step that improves the appearance of your carpet and works the protector over the entire fiber.
