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.
After the powder has done its job to suck up dirt. A unique type of machine is then used to push the powder into the carpet. The opposite of the deep steam cleaning process. Special motorized bush heads are used for this. When the powder is pushed even further into the carpet it allows it to suck up all the grime, dirt and bacteria that is hidden deep in the carpet fibers.
The final step is a high powered vacuum that sucks up all the powder. Leaving your carpets fresh and clean.
The powder that is used is generally 100% natural and also bio-degradable. So even if there is an issue with the final vacuuming part of the process and some power is left over it will naturally disappear over time.
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.
