Hot Carbonated Cleaning Vs. Steam And Shampoo Cleaning
Even if your carpets appear clean, and you’ve managed to spot-treat certain stains, so they’re no longer visible, your carpets can still benefit from a professional carpet cleaning. Having your carpets professionally cleaned is the best way to ensure they’re spotless, hygienic, and capable of withstanding years of wear.
When it comes to professionally cleaning your carpets, you have a few different options, some more reliable than others. The two most effective methods of cleaning carpets and upholstery today are hot carbonated cleaning and steam and shampoo cleaning. To see how these cleaning options stand against each other, Klean DryZ has compared hot carbonated cleaning vs. steam and shampoo cleaning. Keep reading to see which option is suitable for your needs.
1. Hot carbonated cleaning
Hot carbonating extraction cleaning uses hot water to extract dirt from your carpets but takes a different approach. Rather than soaking your carpets, carbonating cleaning uses a superheated, low-moisture process to clean your carpet with millions of microscopic bubbles. These bubbles explode dirt from deep within your carpet fibers when the carbonation releases, lifting up the dirt.
High-powered equipment is used to extract all the dirt and moisture from the carpet. This method uses much less water, and there is no color loss or shrinking. It is also green-friendly, dries quickly, and ensures no soapy residue is left behind to attract new dirt. This method only cleans the material that needs cleaning and doesn’t penetrate into the backing. This prevents it from rotting out the material and increasing its life.
2. Steam and shampoo cleaning
Steam and shampoo cleaning uses equipment that sprays heated water on the carpet. The water contains cleaning chemicals like shampoo mixed in it. The water gets simultaneously vacuumed up as it’s being sprayed. The vacuum sucks up any dirt lodged in the carpet. The hot water extracts dirt and debris in the carpet by jarring it loose and dissolving it with large volumes of water and high pressure. This method has been around for a while now, and companies have perfected it. This method of carpet cleaning also doesn’t take any specialized equipment or training.
Additionally, it appears cheaper, as the cleaning doesn’t last as long and is not so accurate. After the cleaning is completed, you need to wait for a while to use your carpet again as it takes time to dry completely. When you use a traditional method, it requires you to clean it frequently. Depending on the floor you clean, a steam mop really cleans the carpet with a surface and everything to deeper levels. Also, the level of cleaning depends on the strength of your steam cleaner. Through this method, the water and chemicals soak through into the underlay and can rot out the carpet. This causes blackening, color fade, and shrinkage. Lastly, the peroxides used in cleaning can be harmful to you.
Which cleaning option is better?
As a home and business owner, you should choose hot carbonated cleaning as it is so much faster and uses less water than the traditional method. It also doesn’t use detergents, soaps, or harsh cleaners. The way it is cleaned ensures longer-lasting of material and a better resale value for your carpets if you choose to sell them. The hot carbonated cleaning method is rated the number one cleaning process in the world. But, if you are just cleaning up your carpets to check a box, you can choose the cheaper steam and shampoo cleaning method.
