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.
You might be thinking how it’s possible to ‘dry’ clean carpet. Doesn’t cleaning require water? This method works by using a special cleaning powder that is put on your carpet. Think of it as a degreaser that fights grease before your clean a kitchen pan.
Then a special cleaning machine that uses powerful motorized brushes is pushed over the carpet. This allows the powder to settle inside the carpet to further absorb the dirt and grime. After some time has passed the powder is vacuumed with a special cleaning machine.
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.
Since the 1980s you have been able to hire professionals who will use dry cleaning methods. But deep steam cleaning is much more popular. And this will be the case for a long time to come. New technologies always take a lot longer to take over.
To add to this somethings never change. The very concept of cleaning something without water is not the norm and might be too out there for most people to accept and part with their money to buy as a service.
