One of the most popular and effective methods that professional carpet cleaners use to get carpets looking their best is hot water extraction or 'steam cleaning.' This method uses a detergent that is sprayed on the carpet followed by spraying of hot water to help activate the cleaners in the detergent. The mixture of solution and hot water penetrates deep down into the carpet fibers loosening the dirt and grime that is stuck in your carpets. Then, the carpet cleaner professional uses a powerful suctioning device to pull up all the dirt, water and excess detergent. Afterwards, your carpets will be damp, but drying time is usually only a few hours. Opening a window to allow air to circulate may help them dry even faster.
Another type of carpet cleaning Seattle that won't leave your carpets damp at all is dry foam cleaning. With this type of carpet cleaning, there are no liquid cleaners involved. A dry foam is sprayed on the carpets and then vacuumed up with a high powered suction device. It's another great way to get your carpets looking new, and not having to wait for them to dry.
For businesses or office buildings that need carpet cleaning done, Bonnet cleaning is the process typically used. That is because most offices have low pile carpets. A bonnet cleaner is a heavy duty, large cleaning machine similar to a circular floor buffer that janitors use. After a detergent is sprayed on the carpets, the machine will use circular motions to scrub the carpets clean and suck up the excess.
