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 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.
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.
