Which Carpet Cleaning Method Do You Choose?

Is it time again to have your dirty carpets cleaned? If so, you may be surprised to know that there are a few different methods that you can choose from for your flooring. And since a properly cleaned carpet can enhance the value of your home as well as last for many years, you may want to make sure you get it right.

If you don't require a deep cleaning on your carpet but a vacuum job won't do, you can look into a bonnet cleaning. This particular method is a low moisture method of cleaning which means less of a chance of stinky mold or mildew in your home.

This method of cleaning uses a rotating cleaning pad to help loosen dirt from the carpet so that it may be cleaned up easier than using just a vacuum. If you are short on funds, but require something more in your home this may be the way to go.

Dry-extraction carpet cleaning: Although the name suggests different, this is actually a wet method of cleaning but with much less water than a traditional steam cleaning will typically use on your floor. This method uses bubbles and just a bit of heated water to lift up dirt so that it can be picked up with a vacuum.

Of course if you really have messy carpets with a lot of ground in dirt, you will want to opt for a more traditional steam cleaning, also called hot water extraction by most professional carpet cleaners.

This method involves using a carpet cleaning solution that is applied to the carpet and then sucked out with a powerful vacuum which sucks up the dirt, grime and cleaning solution in one swoop. This method will leave your carpet damp for several hours after it is completed, so you will want to make sure you don't plan on being home for a while after they carpet cleaning pro's leave your home.

What can you expect to pay for these treatments?

Having a professional carpet cleaning is not really that expensive as a whole, but can get a bit pricey if you have super high-traffic areas on your rugs. The typical job is less than $100 and should cover any stairs and rooms that you need to have cleaned.

Just make sure than when you call the carpet cleaning company that you get a quote and make sure they don't try to do any type of bait and switch routine to get you to buy services and products that you don't need.

Generally most professional carpet cleaning guys are pretty honest, so you shouldn't have to worry too much about getting taken, but it never hurts to be extra vigilant.
