Carpet is a popular type of flooring used in both commercial and residential buildings. A lot of people love carpet flooring for its aesthetic appeal and the comfort it provides. The only things keeping everybody from using carpet flooring is the high maintenance required.

It’s a good thing there are professional carpet cleaners that can take care of the major carpet care activities. Carpet cleaners can use different cleaning methods, but all of these can be classified as wet or dry cleaning. Wet cleaning is distinguished from dry cleaning simply by the amount of water used in the process. Water used for cleaning may either be hot or cold, depending on the method of cleaning used.

In hot water extraction, a wet carpet cleaning method, hot water mixed with cleaning chemicals is sprayed or splashed onto the carpet. The carpet is scrubbed to help disturb particles and later vacuumed to extract dislodged dirt and soil. Hot water extraction is for dealing with carpets that have deep-seated stains that typical vacuum cleaners won’t be able to get out.

While hot water extraction is effective for thorough cleaning, it might damage more delicate types of carpet, creating wrinkles and other unpleasant types of damage on the wool. Carpet colors also fade faster when soaked with hot water. Furthermore, the drying period after hot water extraction and other wet cleaning methods takes some time.

Large and frequently occupied facilities such as hotels and restaurants in highly industrialized cities like Indianapolis have no time to wait for the carpet to dry after wet cleaning. They prefer dry cleaning methods, which only lasts for a few hours, yet produce almost similar results. The types of dry carpet cleaning Indianapolis experts recommend include dry compound and encapsulation. Both methods use absorbent compounds that do not need solvent like water to be able to extract dirt from deep down the pile.

Some dry cleaning methods still require water, but only enough to mix up cleaning agents. However, dry carpet cleaning Indianapolis IN professionals offer is only ideal for slightly soiled carpets and should not be an alternative for extremely dirty carpets. Otherwise, only the dirt on the surface will be extracted and the dirt underneath the piles can still serve as a breeding ground for bacteria and fungi.
