Carpet Cleaning using Controlled Low Moisture- Riverside, CA
Consumers tend to confuse the meaning of low moisture carpet cleaning. This cleaning method can refer to many different cleaning techniques, mostly encapsulation, bonnet cleaning, and the dry method. Let’s talk about the difference between the three methods mentioned, and the benefits of low moisture cleaning services:
Encapsulation carpet cleaning: This cleaning method is designed with an innovative polymer technology to form a distinct crystal when it dries. The crystal is the vehicle that captures the soil so it can be extracted by vacuuming when the cleaning is complete.
Dry compound carpet cleaning: An absorbent, biodegradable cleaning compound is spread evenly over the carpet and brushed in. Dirt and grime is attracted to the compound, which is then vacuumed off, leaving carpet immediately clean and dry. Somewhat similar to the encapsulation method.
Bonnet carpet cleaning: Green cleaning solution is applied onto the carpet as a mist, a round industrial floor machine scrubs the solution with a rotating motion. This industry machine resembles a floor buffer, with an absorbent bonnet that attracts soil and is rinsed or replaced repeatedly. The bonnet method is not strictly dry-cleaning and involves the use of controlled low moisture. Designed for moderate soil levels, extremely effective in lifting staining promoting fast dry times, typically 2 hours.
The professional carpet cleaning industry has embraced low moisture carpet care, and many end-users now ask for it as well. Benefits related to low moisture carpet cleaning are nothing but positive. We only offer the bonnet cleaning for our standard service, we also offer a hot water extraction method while still using controlled low moisture.
A low moisture extractor releases much less water into the carpets when compared to a conventional or traditional extractor. While conventional extractors may release 1.5-2.5 gallons of water per minute into carpets, low moisture equipment reduces this to less than one gallon of water per minute. This enables us to clean up to 2,000 square feet of carpet using less than 10 gallons of water. That can save anywhere from 30-50 gallons of water for every 2,000 square feet of carpet cleaned, especially with the severe drought we are currently experiencing that is a big deal.
