Extraction vs Dry Carpet Cleaning
Carpet Cleaning Methods
Put very simply:
Hot water extraction (sometimes refered to as steam carpet cleaning) pumps a solution of hot water and detergent into the carpet and then extracts it again removing soil from the carpets. For the best results a truck mount machine is used, although in appartments etc this is not always possible & a portable cleaning machine will then be used.
Dry carpet cleaningrefers to carpet cleaning methods that do not use hot water extraction units. Dry carpet cleaning is a method called ‘Bonnet Dry Cleaning’ and involves using a bonnet or pad on a buffing machine to rotate on the carpet surface and draw the dirt up into the pad. A cleaning solution is first sprayed onto the carpets & worked in with the rotation of the machine.
