Extraction carpet cleaning is one of the most thorough and comprehensive carpet cleaning methods available. This method combines cleaning detergents which are pre-sprayed into the carpet and then extracted with hot water or steam. This process loosens any dirt, grime and stains. A high-powered vacuum extracts the dirt-filled cleaning solution from the carpet.
The quality of the equipment being used to execute this process is critical. When inadequate machines are used, soil or carpet cleaning detergent may be left behind which can affect indoor air quality.
Extraction cleaning works well on carpets made of synthetic fibers, such as nylon, olefin and polyester, as well as natural materials, such as wool and cotton.
