Dry carpet cleaning is becoming more and more popular. Historically it’s been used by businesses who need fast drying times for their carpets. Some businesses can’t afford 6 to 8 hours downtime for normal deep steam cleaning with staff working around the clock. As time goes by, it’s become more and more popular in residential settings also.
When you hire a professional to use a dry cleaning method on your carpets don’t be alarmed if they start coving your carpets in powered. This is how the process works. Instead of water and steam, the dry method for cleaning carpets works with a special powder that acts like a magnet trapping all the dirt and bacteria in the power before being vacuumed up.
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.
While dry carpet cleaning has its advantages especially when there is zero dry time it’s unlikely that it’s going to become as popular as deep steam cleaning any time soon.
