The spiral of the carpet fibre and the glare of the colours are very beautiful, but sadly rugs become worn and a little filthy, that the fantastic look is lost. This can often be restored by booking expert Carpet Cleaners London.
Carpet cleaning has been misunderstood for a while. The use of conventional detergents with too much water that soaks into the carpets, could leave soapy remains, and a bad smell. The sticky residue means that carpets would often re-soil really swiftly and the odor can be complex to eliminate for several days.
Recently modern methods have been introduced that use non-detergent based cleaners, and even dry cleaning techniques that are very efficient. These new approaches are usually easier to get to know than the old approaches, meaning that there are many certified companies offering brilliant carpet cleaning services.
Hot water extraction is one of the most popular techniques for modern rug cleaning. It’s thought that the operator is using a steam cleaner as it appears that steam is coming out of the cleaning wand. However it’s, in fact, water at extremely high pressure, normally 200 to 500 psi, that looks just like steam. This high pressure water spray is injected into the carpet where it eliminates the dirt from deep in the fibres.
The dirty water is then drawn out of the rug thread using a very high hoover which is built into the cleaning wand. The filthy water only spends a couple of seconds, if that, in the carpet and the high vacuum means that nearly all the water is pulled out, leaving the carpet dry, without the bad smell.
Expert cleaners will vacuum the carpet carefully before using hot water extraction. After the rug has been carefully vacuum cleaned, a pre-spray is typically used to break down the filth and gravel in the carpet. This pre-spray could be rubbed into the carpet fibre by hand, or quite often, an electric agitator will be used to work it into the thread. The pre-spray is then allowed to rest in the rug for a couple of minutes to break down the filth.
Later on, the hot water extraction process is used to draw all the filth and gravel out of the carpet, leaving it looking like new. Some stains might be harder to remove and they may need individual treatment. Professional sprays are used to remove these stains out of the carpet, usually by spraying, waiting for the chemicals to work, and then blotting with a tidy white cloth to remove the stain. For really stubborn stains, this “spotting” procedure may need to be repeated a few times.
Many carpets can be restored to practically new look with a specialist carpet cleaning service. It is always best to book rug cleaning at least once a year to ensure that your rugs retain their amazing look.
