Hot Water Extraction (Steam Cleaning) is the most recommended method. In the context of carpet cleaning, "steam cleaning" is usually a misleading term for the hot water extraction cleaning method. The hot water extraction cleaning method uses equipment that sprays heated water (not steam), sometimes with added cleaning chemicals, on the carpet while simultaneously vacuuming the sprayed water along with any dislodged and dissolved dirt. Many carpet manufacturers recommend professional hot water extraction as the most effective carpet cleaning method. Actual steam could damage manmade carpet fibres or shrink natural fibres such as wool.

Allergies and Cleaner Carpet

If you want to reduce the severity of allergies then carpet cleaning is the right solution. Removing allergens such as and dust mites and pet dander during your carpet cleaning may help anyone in your home who suffers from allergies, especially for baby crawling around the house and children.

The benefits of Carpet Cleaning

According to a report by the American Lung Association, dust accumulation in carpet and rugs can adversely affect members of your household who suffer from conditions that can affect their breathing, such as snoring or asthma. Effective professional cleaning in Canberra from Capital Tradies can bring a new lease of life to your carpets and upholstery.

1. Carpet cleaning eliminates trapped pollutants

A dirty carpet can retain several sources of indoor air pollutants, including pet dander, cockroach allergens, lead, particle pollution, and everyday dirt and dust. Toxic airborne gases can adhere to these particles and also get trapped within the carpet.

These toxic gases can be released through everyday activities such as vacuuming and walking across the carpet, which can cause them to contaminate the air in your home. Professional carpet cleaning services kill these bacteria through special shampooing formulas and can remove deeply trapped pollutants with high-powered vacuums.

2. Carpet cleaning can clear out dust mite infestations

Many homes have dust mite infestations, yet most homeowners aren't aware of the infestation because the creatures are microscopic. Dust mites themselves aren't allergens, but they often leave behind faeces and body fragments which are.

Because of the microscopic size of these particles, they can easily be inhaled when the area is disturbed, which can exacerbate allergies. Many professional carpet cleaning companies utilize a technique known as steam cleaning when performing carpet maintenance work, which exposes your carpet to high temperatures that dust mites can't survive.

 3. Carpet cleaning can help prevent mould growth

Especially in areas with high humidity levels, dirty carpets are at a high risk of developing mould growth when exposed to moisture. In precipitous weather, moisture frequently gets tracked into the home and can sink deep in the carpet fibres if not dried and vacuumed immediately.

Having your carpet cleaned regularly can prevent mould and mildew growth, because professional carpet cleaners have high-powered drying tools that annihilate moisture. If you choose to clean your carpet yourself, use fans and turn on the air or open windows to help dry the carpet out faster.

Carpet Cleaning Methods

Carpet cleaning professionals use a wide range of cleaning methods when tackling dirty rugs and carpets. Cost, degree of carpet soiling, environmental conditions and fibre type typically influence the selection of a carpet-cleaning method.Here are the benefits of the most common processes used today for carpet cleaning in Canberra.

1. Steam Cleaning (Hot Water Extraction)

Also known as hot water extraction, steam cleaning in Canberra is a common method of cleaning carpets. In this method, hot water is heated to boiling and injected into the carpet under pressure. The hot water effectively loosens the dirt, and the carpet-cleaning machine immediately draws moisture and dirt away. Heavily soiled carpet often requires the use of detergent. Steam cleaning is effective in removing odours and killing bacteria and dust mites.

2. Carpet Shampooing

Carpet shampooing is the original carpet-cleaning method used by professional cleaners. In this process, a foamy chemical is distributed on the carpet and scrubbed in with a motorised circular brush. This method works best for heavily soiled, low-pile carpet. Since no extraction process is involved, the carpet must be thoroughly vacuumed to remove soil and residue. Many carpet cleaning professionals recommend steam cleaning as more effective than carpet shampooing.

 3. Carpet Dry Cleaning

The dry-cleaning method uses virtually no water. A technician sprinkles a small amount of an absorbent compound over the carpet and uses a mechanised brush to work it through the carpet, dissolving soil. The soil and residue are then drawn up by a commercial vacuum cleaner. The dry-cleaning method dries carpet more quickly than any other cleaning method. Easily damaged natural-fibre carpets, such as sisal and hemp, benefit from the dry-cleaning process.

4. Bonnet Cleaning

Though this method of carpet cleaning in Canberra is sometimes referred to as a dry-cleaning method, it really is not. Bonnet cleaning uses a cleaning product, occasionally mixed with carbonated water, and spreads it as a mist over the surface of the carpet. A circular rotating buffer or "bonnet" with an absorbent covering is run over the soiled area. When the covering becomes soiled, it is replaced with a clean one. While the top one-third of the carpet is cleaned, soil which has settled to the bottom of the pile remains behind. This cleaning method should be viewed as a temporary measure between more intensive cleanings.

According to the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration (IIRC), all carpets should be cleaned at least once a year. In low-traffic areas, carpets can go 12 to 18 months between cleanings, but high-traffic areas may need to be professionally cleaned 4 times a year.

Households with pets, smokers, children and a good amount of foot traffic should have their carpets professionally cleaned two to four times each year. Dust mites, pet dander and allergens are only part of the problem. While dust and bacteria trigger asthma attacks and allergic reactions, the dirt, sand and abrasive particles shorten the life of your carpet and result in premature wear.

In addition to hiring a professional carpet cleaner in Canberra, homeowners should vacuum areas with little foot traffic once a week and more often in highly trafficked areas. If pets and kids are in the house, these areas may need to be cleaned multiple times each week.

A Cleaner Carpet equals a Cleaner Home
