Dry Carpet Cleaning: Attacking Dirt from All Sides
Some cleaners prefer to use dry carpet cleaning. Follow along with Groupon’s introduction to the method to learn how it gets results with less water.
Drying time is one of the most important factors when choosing a carpet-cleaning method—it can take hours or almost no time at all. Like dry cleaning for laundry, dry carpet cleaning usually does use liquid of some kind, but its low-moisture techniques reduce the time you have to wait to rub your face on the nice, clean carpet. One of the most popular methods for dry carpet cleaning is encapsulation.
Rather than saturate a carpet with hot water and detergent, then suck back up the water and the dirt too, encapsulation lets chemistry do the heavy lifting. Using a regular carpet-cleaning machine or a compression sprayer, cleaning technicians ensure that a polymer solution, mixed with water, gets deep into the pile of the carpet where the most tenacious dirt particles and mutant cookie crumbs live. There, the solution surrounds the bits of grime, freeing them from the fabric, and promptly forms a crystal, locking them inside. The crystalized substance dries quickly, letting cleaners vacuum away the powder with ease.
Though the encapsulation process relies on modern chemistry, the principle of using a slightly moistened substance to draw out dirt from carpets isn’t new. In the centuries before carpet-cleaners and vacuums were invented, housewives were commonly advised to sprinkle their rugs with dampened bits of paper, fresh grass clippings, or even tea leaves, then sweep them back up in the hopes that they’d absorbed some of the grime.
Dry in 20
According to a national survey, homeowners have two problems with traditional carpet cleaning: how wet carpets are afterward, and the reemergence of stubborn stains. Cesar Ruiz, owner of Dry in 20, promises to eliminate both those issues, along with several more. First things first, his organic cleaning method uses a fraction of the water of traditional cleaning, so carpets dry in under 30 minutes. Second, because the carpets don't retain as much water, stains stay gone after carpets dry. The solution Ruiz and his team use contains zero harsh chemicals, and is nonirritating to pets and family members who, instead of using a towel, dry themselves off by rolling around on the floor. The six-step process includes a low-moisture pretreatment and a cleaning from the bottom up, which pulls up embedded dirt and stains.
In addition to carpet cleaning, the staff cleans tile, grout, and upholstery using the same organic treatment, and can also provide full house cleaning to evict dirt from any and all living areas.
