Capital Cleaning offers three carpet cleaning choices, depending on your carpet type and its condition. All three meet industry standard carpet-cleaning methods.
1. Hot Water Extraction
Often called Steamcleaning, this method involves spraying a cleaning solution that is under pressure and injected into the carpet pile. After some time passes, a hot water rinse is sprayed into the carpet and extracted.
2. Dry Compound
Often called Host Dry Carpet Cleaning, this method involves spreading a sawdust-like compound on the carpet and using a special machine to work the powder into the carpet pile. After some time passes, the compound is vacuumed up.
3. Bonnet Cleaning
Often called Carbonated Shampoo Cleaning, this method consists of spraying the carpet with a cleaning solution and using a rotary floor machine. A cotton bonnet is attached to the machine and is used to pick up the soil. This method has the advantage of being quick drying.
When this protective coating is applied to the carpet fibers, it puts a protective barrier around each fiber. This protective barrier resists moisture. When you do have a spill, it gives you a window of time to get it cleaned up. The other important way that this product helps you is in the area of carpet wear. Having this protective coating on your carpet helps reduce the wear and abrasion caused by sand in the carpet. This protects the carpet from excessive matting, and in turn will cause your carpet to perform better.
Question: My brother in law told me I should never hire a carpet cleaner who didn't have a truck-mounted cleaning system. Is he right?
Answer: No! Regardless of whether the carpet cleaner has a truck-mounted system or not, the question is whether the equipment to be used has adequate:
- suction power, as measured at the wand
- psi (but not too much, as that can damage carpets)
- heat (but not too much, as that can damage carpets)
Also, the carpet cleaner needs to have a quality wand. Why is that important? Because a great wand, like the Evolution Wand that Capital Cleaning uses, does a superior job of extracting soils and solution which, in turn, leaves the carpet cleaner and nearly dry to the touch, thereby reducing total drying time.
