These are the FACTS you may find helpful:
FACT #1 Looks Aren’t Everything! Modern carpeting is a technological marvel. It was designed to hide dirt and boy does it do a good job! You can literally pour a pound of potting soil in one square foot of a quality nylon carpet; rub it in and IT WILL DISAPPEAR! That means all of the junk (dander, fumes, pollutants, germs, bacteria, fleas, etc.) that comes into your home is safely hidden in your carpet!
FACT #2 Dirt, Sand and Grit are Killing Your Carpet! What would happen if you rubbed sandpaper all over that beautiful clear coat paint on your car… what a disaster! Well, each day I pull pounds of gritty soil out of base of peoples carpets. And it’s in yours too! This gritty soil goes to work on your carpet just like tiny saws – cutting and tearing into your carpet’s delicate fibers, giving it that worn, dull look. This is the #1 cause of your carpet’s ugly, faded and worn appearance.
FACT #3 Traffic Lane Trouble! Here’s the scoop: The longer you wait to clean your carpet, the more soil becomes permanent. It locks onto the fibers, and through a process called ‘oxidation’, the soil bonds with the carpet, permanently attaching to it. You can tell when this happens because the carpet color changes. If you wait too long, you’ve thrown away the key to unlock the dirt and oily pollutants in the traffic lanes.
More to consider:
Why is it important to have carpets cleaned?
Professional cleaning and maintenance of your carpet rejuvenates the life and beauty of your carpet, improves indoor air quality, will help you avoid the cost of premature replacement and benefit the environment by keeping post-consumer carpet out of landfills.
Proper cleaning will protect your carpet investment and keep you from having to replace the carpet before it would be time. In addition, the investment you make in properly maintaining your carpet is far less expensive than the cost of replacement.
These days everyone is concerned with preserving the environment. Our carpet cleaning methods are environmentally friendly and enable you to keep your carpets looking like new for much longer time and avoiding filling landfills with your old carpet.
Does the method of cleaning really matter?
Not all carpet cleaning methods are the same. Depending on your goals, one method may be more appropriate for you over another. The main types of cleaning available are shampooing, dry cleaning, encapsulation, bonnet, absorbent pad cleaning or hot water extraction (otherwise known as steam cleaning)
The theory in the shampoo method is to generate a lot of foam in the carpet, allow this foam to dry, have the resulting residue attract the soil, and vacuum up the residue and soil. Can you imagine applying shampoo to your hair, allowing it to dry and then removing it from your head with a vacuum?
Because shampoos are actually very poor detergents and basically simply bury the dirt, they frequently also contain high levels of optical brighteners which take invisible ultraviolet light and convert it to visible light, thus making the carpet appear cleaner and brighter than it really is, for a while. It will eventually give the carpet a yellow cast and the yellow cannot be removed.
Shampoo methods are inferior due to poor cleaning plus re-soiling problems due to residue left behind. The Rotary Shampoo method can damage the carpet, especially cut pile ( most residential carpet is).
Dry Cleaning or Encapsulation:
In dry cleaning methods, virtually no water is used. In this method, moist absorbent compound (containing small amounts of water, detergent, and solvent,) is sprinkled over carpet or worked into the carpet with a machine. This purpose of this cleaner is to attract and absorb soil. Mechanical agitation from a brush works the cleaner through the carpet. The product then needs to be thoroughly vacuumed out of the carpet.
This method offers a surface cleaning to the tops of the carpet fibers which are coated with the chemicals and then vacuumed away. Residue is often left behind which will attract dirt, just as in the shampoo method because the carpet is not rinsed.
Bonnet or Absorbent Pad Cleaning:
Sometimes this method is also referred to as dry cleaning or carbonated cleaning; however water is used, so it’s not a true dry cleaning method. It is similar to some of the other methods described, except a large cotton bonnet is placed on your carpet with a floor polishing buffer machine on top to “buff” the chemicals and dirt out of the carpet. The rotating motion causes the bonnet to absorb some of the dirt and applied chemicals from your carpet. Bonnet cleaning is like trying to use a large towel to rub the dirt out of your carpet. Like dry foam, it’s not very effective for deep down restorative cleaning.. In addition it can cause damage to your carpet fibers if not done properly.
Hot Water Extraction:
The Only Method that Share Advanced Tile And Carpet Deep Cleaning Services LLC uses when cleaning your carpets.
This is a fancy way of saying that cleaning solution and hot water, under high pressure is forced into your carpet and then sucked out. It is the only method that cleans your carpets of dirt, harmful bacteria, fungus, chemicals, pollen’s, tobacco residue and dust mites.
Hot Water Extraction can be done using truck mounted equipment (a unit mounted in a truck outside the facility where only the hose and wand are brought inside) or a portable, self-contained unit brought in to the facility.
A truck mounted unit cleans more effectively and produces better results because it heats the water to a very high temperature and uses higher pressure then a portable machine can achieve. The heat/pressure combination breaks up the dirt, bacteria, chemicals and pollen’s trapped in your carpet. Then the machine produces huge vacuum volume to draw the dirt, water and cleaning solutions out your carpet into a waste tank in the truck. Share Advanced Tile And Carpet Deep Cleaning Services LLC has always used truck mounted equipment.
Some people mistakenly believe that hot water damages your carpet, but this isn’t true. Most carpet is made of plastic fibers and cannot be harmed by water. By washing and then rising your carpet with hot water, we clean your carpet completely – in the same way that the person who showers and rinses of the dirt and soap will be much cleaner than the person who only takes a sponge bath.
Shaw Industries, the world’s largest carpet manufacture recommends hot water extraction cleaning. They advise the use of truck mounted units over portables. In 2008, Shaw specified that to uphold their carpet warranty, carpets must be professionally cleaned every 18-24 months by an IICRC Certified Firm and Technician. Our training and equipment meets the industry standards.
