Dry carpet cleaning, also known as compound cleaning is a new technology. It has really starting to gain market popularity because it is very effective and removes the need for long dry times that typical deep steam cleaning comes with.
This type of cleaning is a little different to wet cleaning. A special powder is sprinkled on the carpet beforehand and left to settle for a period of time before being cleaned off. This power is generally bio-degradable and totally safe. It acts like a sponge sucking up everything that makes your carpet dirty.
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.
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.
