Carpet Cleaning- A Specialized Profession
Carpets have been in homes from the time immemorial for beautification and insulation from harsh climate and no doubt cleaning them also must have started during that time. If walking barefoot on carpet would damage it due to body oils or not was a topic of dispute earlier, as latest testing techniques were not available then. But now carpet cleaning has emerged as a specialized profession in itself now under training and guidance from Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification. We at New York Oriental Rug Cleaning Company have also geared into this business and become the foremost pioneers in the carpet cleaning business.
Can Dust Mites Cause Asthma and other health problems?
Dust mites ingrained inside the fabric of the carpet can cause asthma and other health problems however its periodical cleaning can help to retain its beauty and long life. There are two carpet cleaning methods: dry cleaning and wet cleaning. Dry cleaning can be used by using dry compounds, encapsulation or bonnet. Wet cleaning can be done either by steam cleaning or shampoo cleaning. Presently steam cleaning is preferred for cleaning carpets as the aim of cleaning is to remove dust, extract stains and restore the color of the carpet.
Process of carpet cleaning
Process of carpet cleaning starts with preconditioning of carpet with an alkaline agent. Thorough brushing and rinsing is done for removing dirt. Then precondition agent is applied. High pressure hot water extraction system or steam cleaning system washes the carpet using detergents which is though soft on fabric of the carpet yet can remove all the remaining stains. Deep cleaning reaches every part of the carpet.
There is also a need to remove the moisture from carpet as dirt from root of fibers comes up with water which is also to be taken out. Vacuum drying will remove complete moisture and detergent from carpet. Then of course the carpet is kept for drying and this process gets completed in normally three to four hours.
Steam it to clean it well
As the hot water extracting process is the most critical one because more water will damage carpet while less water will not remove the dirt effectively. Only the professional carpet cleaners can assess the exact amount of water needed to clean it well. Also use of fans, good ventilation or air-conditioning can speed up the process. We have to take care as the shrinking of the carpets can take place due to steam extraction process, if the components of carpet are woven from natural fibers like jute. In such cases some other method has to be applied but there is no risk to artificial fibers as they do not shrink.

Sharp edges tear the carpets and legs of heavy furniture may exert more pressure on carpets but padding the furniture legs can solve this problem.
