A carpeted floor adds beauty and style to a space. These carpets are susceptible to wear and tear from daily foot traffic, dirt, mites, spills, and other factors. Regular carpet cleaning with the correct tools and equipment is key to maintaining a clean, well-maintained carpet. Standard home cleaning products won’t give the desired results.
Here are five common tools professionals use to deep clean carpets – get the facts!
Portable cleaning tools
Carpet cleaners use portable equipment for smaller areas. While these machines can be quite heavy, they are easy to carry. They come in different types, depending on their purposes. The portable equipment can be used in various ways depending on the carpet type and the customer’s preference, such as carpet shampooing, bonnet clean, hot water extraction, dry carpet cleaning, or carpet shampooing. Professional cleaning companies usually have most of these tools in their possession.
Other portable equipment professional services can use include the following:
Vacuum Cleaning: A vacuum is an essential tool in carpet cleaning.
Defoamer Foam: Foam might reduce the effectiveness in cleaning. Defoamer can be used by carpet cleaners to remove any foam and speed up dry times. These defoamers use a mixture oil or silicone to get rid of the foam.
Carpet Scrubber:This device functions as an air filter and is used in dry cleaning to remove any airborne particulates or fungi. The scrubber is applied after deep cleaning to improve air quality.
Carpet-Cleaning Wand: This primary tool is used for the cleaning process. The wand uses water jets to spray the cleaning agent, which is then sucked into the vacuum slot. The best rotary cleaners for shaggy carpets are those that can clean wool carpets. However, they will not cause any damage to the carpet fibres if used with wands. Without a pro-extractors, it’s impossible to use them.
Crevice Cleaning Tools: These tools clean crevices in areas like between the stairs.
Protective Products: To prevent furniture and other items being damaged while cleaning, professionals use protective accessories such as furniture protectors (or caution signs), straps, corner guards, chemical racks, straps, corners guards, and straps.
