Straight to reality, carpets get dirty.
And when it does, getting in clean again can be a chore. Due
to this, many people opt to engage services for carpet
cleaning. Cleaning equipment used by cleaning companies is
far superior to equipment one can purchase or rent.
Many people have different views on the best methods for
cleaning. Steam cleaning has been said to be a best,
however it is a misconception. The right way of phrasing
it would be called hot water extraction. The machine
uses hot water to clean and rinse the carpet. Hence,
embedded dirt is removed and life of carpet is
Another preferred method would be dry cleaning. This is
done by beating powder into the carpet with a beater
bar. The powder would not be removable unless knocked
off via the back of the carpet, which in certain
circumstances is impossible. Hence dry cleaning methods
are not able to cleanse and rinse well. Excess water
cannot be removed.
Professionals mention that once a stain has been
properly removed it will be gone. What looks like stains
are residue left due to wet spots and dirt.
Most major manufacturers of carpets recommend steam
cleaning (hot water extraction) for carpets. New
cleaning processes are known as dry steam. Dry steam
cleaning is meant ensure that carpets are dry once the
process is finished. Dry Steam cleaning uses more water
than hot water extraction yet leaves no residue or
water. The only disadvantage of it is that it takes a
longer period of time to dry out as steam cleaning
usually can cover up to a large area.
Plentiful of methods for carpet cleaning, hence it will
be best to choose and decide on one preference. Most
companies offer promotions on 2 or more rooms. The best
is to always try out both methods and decide the
favourable method. There are many available carpet
cleaning companies around, search for the best deal that
is the most suitable for you.
Always look for residue from soap and check how long it
takes for your carpets to dry. If it’s in a high traffic
area, it will be prone to stains. Check if stains are
completely removed after cleaning. With children around,
it’s best to clean more frequently You may also check
with your family members on preferences because what you
like best might not appear the same for them.
It is never easy to find a good carpet cleaning company
in Singapore. Always do your research properly because
most of the time, you will not be using the company
once. Carpet needs to be clean once every 3 months
depending on the traffic of the premises.
