Spartanburg Carpet Steam Cleaning – Summit Janitorial

Apr 1, 2011


In order to keep your carpets looking their best over a long period of time, it’s important to understand the methods available for cleaning them. At Summit Janitorial, specializing in office cleaning in SC,  we recommend steam cleaning for your Spartanburg carpets.

Carpet Cleaning Methods

The four main methods of carpet cleaning are:

  • Shampooing
  • Dry Extraction
  • Bonnet Cleaning
  • Wet Extraction (or Steam Cleaning)

Shampoo methods are inferior due to poor cleaning, and in addition to that, they create rapid re-soiling because the shampoo foam dries to a sticky residue in the carpet fibers.

Dry extraction – where a dry absorbent compound is worked into the carpet and then vacuumed up –  can be effective, but very thorough vacuuming, can reduce indoor air quality, and can result in white powder reappearing after wet extraction cleaning.

Bonnet Cleaning is simply an adaptation of hard floor spray buffing to carpets.  Check with your carpet manufacturer because many recommend against this method of cleaning, as it is too hard on the carpet fibers.

Steam Cleaning

For Spartanburg Carpet: Steam Cleaning Is Best

Wet extraction, or Steam Cleaning, is the cleaning method nearly all carpet manufacturers and carpet fiber producers recommend. Therefore, we also recommend for your Spartanburg carpet: Steam Cleaning. It’s the only method classified as “deep cleaning”. The others are incapable of removing soil deep in the pile and leave large amounts of cleaning agent in the carpet after cleaning.
