How does carpet cleaning work?

Floor cleaning

Do it yourself carpet cleaning is an easy and affordable task for households of all budgets and skill levels. Whether you constantly clean up spots & stains or occasionally clean all the carpets in your home, owning a carpet cleaner has definite benefits and some of our carpet cleaners have the ability to leave your carpets looking 10X cleaner than vacuuming alone*.

How does it work?

Carpet cleaners use a combination of clean solution, powerful scrubbing brushes and vacuum suction. Carpet cleaners inject a mixture of cleaning solution and water deep into your carpet fibres. Brushes then agitate, scrub and loosen the dirt and/or stain and then the powerful vacuum suction lifts it away.

What is deep down dirt or ground-in dirt?

Deep down dirt and ground in dirt isn’t just the dirt from your shoes or the dirt that you see when you vacuum. What you don’t see are the invisible particles like skin cells, pollen and food particles that are left behind by vacuuming.

Your carpets can hold as much as one pound of soil per square foot before it is even noticeable! Regular carpet washing reduces the wear by removing fine debris and large dirt particles that scratch and dull your carpeting, which can accelerate wear and tear. Plus, you not only save money & time by doing it yourself but also protect the investment you have made in your home, keeping your carpets looking newer for longer!
