Before any carpet cleaning is undertaken it is of vital importance that a thorough vacuum cleaning routine is carry out to remove as much dry soils as possible.
1.Hot Water Extraction (Deep Cleaning Method)
Hot water extraction involves a combination of high temperatures water that is mixed with various cleaning agents being injected into the carpet at high pressure to loosen the dirt,
stains and soil from its fibres.
A hot water extraction carpet cleaning machine usually has two tanks. A solution tank to hold the clean water and cleaning solution and a
recovery tank which is where all the dirty water is extracted to. Powerful vacuums extract the dirty water and debris from the carpet.
Hot Water Extraction is an effective deep-cleaning method
This method helps to remove dirt trapped way down into the carpet fibres.
2.Dry Powder Cleaning
Dry powder cleaning involves a technique where a soft, natural cleaning product is combined with a small amount of water, detergent, and a safe-to-use solvent.
This mixture is then brushed into the carpet, The powder acts like micro-sponges that dissolve and absorb dirt. Later, the product is vacuumed out to reveal a cleaner carpet surface.
This method is not considered as a deep-cleaning since it just removes dirt from the surface of a carpet. However, this is an appropriate maintenance cleaning technique for commercial use.
An encapsulation cleaning solution is applied via a sprayer
Afterwards, a rotary or cylindrical agitation machine with a brush is used brush the chemical into the carpet,
This allows the encapsulating chemical to penetrate, absorb and isolate the dirt on the carpet, allowing the isolated dirt to then be vacuumed way once dried
This cleaning process is fast and with minimum downtime, since this is a low-moisture system, carpets can be put back into use promptly.
This is also a great carpet maintenance-cleaning method for commercial use, perfect to maintain the surface of high foot traffic carpet.
4.Bonnet Mop Cleaning

Because only the surface of the carpet is treated, the carpet is usually dry in 15-30 minutes.
In Bonnet Cleaning, self-neutralising detergent is sprayed into the carpet and it’s then agitated with a rotary scrubber with a dry cotton bonnet pad attached.
This is an appropriate maintenance cleaning technique for commercial use, giving the surface of the carpet a clean appearance.
