Where Does Low-Moisture Carpet Cleaning Work Best?

Low-moisture carpet cleaning is effective in a number of different industries and scenarios. Low-moisture carpet cleaning is most effective in the following scenarios:

  • Large commercial spaces
  • Spaces that need to be cleaned quickly
  • Spaces with higher-than-average foot traffic
  • There is the risk of carpet damage due to hot water extraction

Sound like your commercial cleaning projects? Then Whittaker may be the right choice for your business!

Low- Moisture Cleaning vs Hot Water Extraction

Though low-moisture cleaning is an effective method to keep your carpet looking new, hot water extraction cleaning is still required at regular intervals. The time your space can go without a hot water extraction cleaning will depend on the foot traffic your space receives.

Hot water extraction involves more complicated and cumbersome equipment and should only be performed by a contracted professional. The extractor then creates a mixture of very hot water (between 180F to 220F) and detergent. The extractor sprays the hot water mixture on the carpet to reach deep into the fibers. After that, the extractor suctions most of the water from the carpet, leaving behind a deeply cleaned carpet. Sometimes, this process is referred to as steam cleaning.

Hot water extraction is used when the carpet needs a deep cleaning. Combining the heated water, detergent, and water pressure removes the most stubborn stains and lifts out any remaining soil left behind by regular cleanings. The process of hot water extraction is also known as steam cleaning.

Hot water extraction requires experienced professionals, heavier equipment, and a much longer wait time until the carpet is dry enough for foot traffic. Additionally, the heat and pressure from the extractor can cause wear and tear on your carpet if cleaned too frequently. While hot water extraction is important for carpet cleaning, it should only be used yearly or for biannual deep cleanings.
