What is Most Appropriate Carpet Cleaning Method for Your Carpet? 

The usual question asked about carpet cleaning is how often do you perform carpet cleaning? There are different factors that determine how often you will clean your carpet; whether you have kids, pets and have a large family. Generally, every 12 to 18 months you should clean your carpets at home or in your office.

But if you have pets or kids at home, you might be needed every month thorough cleaning more frequently. When you feel like its high time for your carpet to be cleaned, make sure you already understand what type of cleaning method that is appropriate with the type of carpet that you have.

It is important to know your options before getting it cleaned. It is also important that you know the methods and both of its advantages and disadvantages.

In this article, you will get to know five different methods of carpet cleaning; shampooing, dry cleaning, foam cleaning, hot water extraction, and bonnet cleaning. Before you start cleaning, make sure you know what you are getting and how effective it will be in you, for your family and for your home.

1. Carpet Shampooing 

The very first and most simple method is the carpet shampooing. Carpet shampooing is probably the not so effective method of cleaning. This is because there are special detergents which are applied to the carpet, with just a little “scrub” and then the shampooed carpet is vacuumed and done. The advantage of this method is that the detergents will leave your room, home or your office smelling good and will make your carpet brighter and lighter. It can be paralleled with shampooing a hair but without using water for rinsing, it will erase dirt but for a short period of time only.

2. Foam Carpet Cleaning

Foam carpet cleaning is at some point the same with shampooing. This carpet cleaning method is the same as dry cleaning, but it utilizes a small amount of water and foam detergent. This is highly advised for interim cleaning. However, highly stained areas of the carpet would not be affected by either of shampooing or foaming.

3. Carpet Dry Cleaning
Another method of carpet cleaning is the carpet dry cleaning. Both dry cleaning and foam cleaning are the same with shampooing. They also have the same effects and result in keeping your carpet clean. But at some point, dry cleaning is usually preferable because you will not need to wait for carpets to dry for long period of time. But, instead of using a wet product, a special cleaning powder designed to remove dirt is applied to the carpet. Once the powder is applied into the carpet, it is vacuumed. Now you have your carpet all cleaned and groomed.

4. Bonnet Cleaning

The last method of cleaning your carpet at home, office or any of your properties is the Bonnet cleaning. This is the method that uses in office commercial/industrial grade carpeting. With this method, home carpet can be damaged because of its vigorous way of cleaning. This type of cleaning entails applying a chemical detergent and then afterward using an absorbent pad on a shampoo machine to remove the dirt.
