Just in case you aren’t familiar with the term, low-moisture carpet cleaning refers to any method of cleaning carpets that allows them to dry faster than standard methods. Generally speaking, carpets that are cleaned with low-moisture methods are able to fully dry in two to four hours, depending of the outdoor conditions.
Many people don’t realize, however, that there are a number of different low-moisture carpet cleaning methods. So, here’s a quick guide to help you understand the different options available to you.
Low-Moisture Carpet Cleaning Methods
#1 | Bonnet Cleaning
This is a style of carpet cleaning that involves the use of a low-rpm floor machine with a bonnet attached to it. The cleaner is applied and the bonnet removes it. Unfortunately, the soil tends to collect in the bonnet so it has to be changed a number of times during the cleaning -process.
#2 | Shampoo Cleaning
This method of cleaning involves the use of a low-rmp floor machine to apply a special detergent to the carpet. The application process helps to loosen up dirt and grime and it’s all sucked away with the help of a wet vacuum. Once the carpet has dried enough, it is vacuumed again to remove any remaining dirt.
#3 | Encapsulation
This is the quickest drying method because it usually requires no water at all. Here, chemicals are applied to the carpet using a machine that brushes the chemicals into the carpet. Once down, the chemicals crystallize and encapsulate
the dirt and grime in the floor. After about an hour, the crystallized substance is vacuumed away.
