Hot water extraction

 Bernal's Carpet Care: WHICH  METHOD CLEANS BEST?     Dry  Foam     

The  carpet  cleaner applies shampoo to your carpet, allows it to dry, and then,   without rinsing, sucks the dried shampoo into a vacuum. Can you imagine   applying shampoo to your hair, allowing it to dry and then removing the  shampoo  from your head with a vacuum? This method leaves a flirty  residue in your  carpet that causes it to re - soil quickly. This is the  major reason that dry  foam is not too effective.

Absorbent  Pad (Bonnet Cleaning):   

This  method  is similar to dry foam, except that the company sets a large cotton   bonnet on your carpe. The rotating motion causes the bonnet to absorb  dirt from  your carpe. Bonnet Cleaning is like trying to use a large  cotton towel or mop  to rub the dirt out of your carpet. It's not very  effective because there's no  extraction process. And if the bonnet  isn't changed out with a clean one  frequently enough, it just smears  soil around the carpet.

Dry,  Absorbent Powder:   

The   dry-compound method spreads a moist, absorbent, powder throughout your  carpet.  The powder is allowed to dry and then sucked into a vacuum.  This method leaves  dry sponge particles on the base of the carpet yam.  And because the carpet is  not rinsed, this method is not very  effective.

Hot  Water Extraction:   

This  is a  fancy way of saying that a hot water cleaning solution under high  pressure  is forced into your carpet and then drawn out of your carpet.

NO  question, the most effective way to  clean carpeting is with hot-water  extraction equipment. It’s the most  powerful cleaning equipment on the market  and the only equipment that  cleans your carpet of dirt, harmful bacteria,  fungus, chemicals,  pollens, and tobacco residue.

Some people believe  that hot water  damages your carpet, but this isn't true. By washing and then  rinsing  your carpet with hat water, we clean your carpet completely - in the   same way that the person who showers and then rinses of the dirt and  soap will  be much cleaner than the person who takes only a sponge bath.                SIX  MISTAKES TO AVOID WHEN CHOOSING A CARPET CLEANER     MISTAKE  #1
Choosing  a carpet cleaner based on equipment alone.   

No  question,  your carpet, cleaner needs first-rate equipment. But they also need   something else. They need technicians who are skilled at operating the   equipment. Many companies own hot-water extractors, but very few  companies  teach their employees how to use them properly. 

The best way to know that the  carpet  cleaner's employees have been en properly trained is to make sure the   cleaner has been certified by the Institute   of Inspection Cleaning   and Restoration Certification(IICRC), before you choose a carpet  cleaner.

Choosing  a carpet cleaner based on a single telephone call.   

          Instead,  invite them to your home and ask for a specific price  quotation. Then you'll  know exactly what the carpet cleaner recommends -  and you won’t be the victim of  high-pressure sales tactics when the  technician steps into your living room.

Choosing  a carpet cleaner based on low price.   

Low  price  could be a problem in three ways (1) Low price can be the bait that   attracts your phone call. Bat once the cleaner gets into your home, they  pressure  you into a much more expensive job. (2) Low price can be for  single-process  cleaning. Rarely does the consumer know what this means  and, when told, asks  for dual-process cleaning instead, which costs  much more. (3) Low price means  the carpet cleaner has cheap equipment,  which will not effectively clean your carpet.

Choosing  a carpet cleaner who isn't certified by the Institute of Inspection    Cleaning and Restoration Certification...   

If  your  carpet cleaner isn't a close friend, you may not know whether they have   the knowledge or experience to clean your carpet well. If you want to  be sure  you're hiring a competent professional, make sure they are  IICRC certified.

Choosing  a carpe cleaner who doesn't offer a money-back guarantee…   

In  my view,  every carpet cleaning company should be fully accountable for their   work. And if you aren't pleased with the job, you be "Limited." Ask  the  carpet cleaner if they offer a complete money-back guarantee.

Choosing  a carpet cleaner without getting comments from his other clients…   

Any  carpet  cleaner can say anything about his past jobs. And sadly, some of what   tea say, au met is true. Make sure you ask for  references or read  comments from current customers so you can depend on the  carpet cleaner  and their work. Any carpet cleaner that does quality work should  be  able to provide you with comments from their clients.


Price  is  what you pay. Value is what you get. When you select a carpet cleaner,   you'll choose horn a wide variety of cleaning methods and price.

Shaw  Industries, the world's largest carpet manufacture, recommends hot water  extraction by certified technicians.

And  here's why hot water extraction is recommended:

1:  The equipment uses strong suction to  draw the dirt, chemicals, bacteria,  pollens, and tobacco smoke residue  out of your carpet.

2:  It shoots the cleaning solution into  your carpet at a high pressure, which  breaks up the dirt, bacteria,  chemicals and pollens.

3:  It uses hot water. For every 18 degree  increase in temperature above 118  degrees F, you double the water’s  cleaning ability. So, if the water  temperature is 136 degrees, it will  clean twice as well as water that is 118  degrees F and 154 degree water  will clean for times as well 118 degree water,  and so on

Not  surprisingly, having your carpets  cleaned thoroughly by a qualified and  certified technician that wises  hat water extraction, costs more than renting a  shampooer at the comer  grocery store.

If  you bought the cheapest carpeting you  could find, then renting a small  shampooer might be all you need. No  question, it will get out some of the  dirt-but the key word here is  "some: It will not get out many of the  pollens, chemicals, bacteria,  and tobacco smoke residues.

On  the other hand…If you bought high  quality carpeting - if you want it to look  good and give you years of  dependable service - then you need to take extra  good care of it. This  means you need to have it cleaned by a skilled, qualified  technician at  least every six months to one year, depending on the amount of  soiling  and foot
          Traffic  it receives and you need to have it cleaned  thoroughly and disinfected, as only  a hot water extraction machine can  do.


Which  is more important to you: a clean carpe-or a clean and healthy carpet? Yes, I  assure you, there is a big difference.
