Dry carpet cleaning shouldn’t be confused with dry cleaning. One is for clothes and one is for carpets.
This type of carpet cleaning is gaining popularity due to its fast drying time and efficiency with removing stains, grime, dirt allergens and just about anything that dirties a carpet and creates a breeding ground for bacteria.
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.
To finish off the process, the professional you hired will use what could almost be seen as a reverse vacuum. A specialized type of machine is used for the cleaning process. This machine forces the powder very deep into the carpet fibers. This allows the powder to do its second round of sucking up all the germs, grime, bacteria and allergens.
The cleaning process is finished with a simple vacuuming of the powder. While it’s simple. A high powered vacuum needs to be used to ensure all the powder is removed. It’s not just an ordinary store-bought vacuum that is used. Once the process is complete the carpet is as clean as it could possibly be.
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.
