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.
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.
The cleaning process is quite unique. There is no water. Rather a special machine is used that forces the powder deep into the carpet so it can suck up even more dirt and grime. Then once some time has passed it’s vacuumed up with a special suction 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.
Dry carpet cleaning has been around since the 1980s. It’s always an option vs typical wet carpet cleaning and is becoming more popular due to the non-existent drying times. You can literally walk on the carpet the moment the professional cleaning company leaves your property. Wet carpet cleaning requires a few hours wait at minimum.
