Dry carpet cleaning is a type of specialized carpet cleaning method. Unlike deep steam cleaning this method doesn’t use steam or water and is as the name describes ‘dry’.
It’s very effective and very comparable to other professional carpet cleaning methods. For the most part, it’s used in commercial settings where it’s not possible for the business to wait for hours to have carpets dry as staff need to work. But it can also be used in the home.
When the cleaning process starts you might be surprised that no water is used. Instead, a special powered is used to cover the carpet. The power is left to sit for a while so it acts like a sponge sucking up all the grime and dirt in your carpet.
Once it’s time to actually clean the carpets a special machine is used to push the powder deep into the carpet fibers. Then a special and high powered vacuum is used to suck up all the powder that has attached itself to all the dirt and grime in the carpet.
The end result is that no water is used so you can walk on the carpet as soon as it’s done.
The powder that is placed on the carpet is safe for people and animals to come into contact with. Common sense needs to prevail. The powder shouldn’t be consumed but if there is a leftover amount of powder stuck deep in the carpet fibers it won’t cause any issues if touched. It’s also bio-degradable. So over time it will naturally disappear.
Dry carpet cleaning made its debut in the 1980s. Back then being a new technology it was a rarity. Roughly 40 years later it is much more popular. Deep steam cleaning still holds the title of the most popular cleaning method and it might take decades until the dry method is the norm if it ever is.
