Need for Professional Carpet Cleaners
Our living room carpets and area rugs tend to get very dirty owing to lot of foot traffic.

Wet Cleaning also known as Hot Water Extraction (Steam Cleaning) involves treating the carpet with a cleansing solution that liquefies soil and dirt-particles. Subsequently, water is heated to its boiling point, pressurized and injected into the carpet. Next, the water is extracted using vacuum. This method is particularly useful for carpets that have deep-rooted dirt, lots of stains, dust and needs heavy cleaning.
Bonnet Cleaning is preferred when routine light-weight cleaning could do the trick. The carpet is first vacuumed thoroughly and a chemical solution is sprayed into it using a hand-sprayer or electric-pump-sprayer. The solution stays on the carpet for some time. The absorbent pad or bonnet, that looks more like a towel is placed on a rotary floor machine and spun over the carpet at 200-300 rpm. This repeated action removes the soil and leaves the carpet relatively clean. This method however is not capable of removing deep-rooted dirt and germs.
A professional carpet cleaning inspection team could inspect your carpet, the dirt condition and advice you on the type of cleaning required.
