Carpet Cleaning Methods

  • Hot-Water Extraction [HWE] Cleaning is the traditional method of cleaning carpets.  It is recommended by the Carpet & Rug Institute to clean commercial-grade carpets using HWE at least once every 12 to 18 months.

  • Very-Low Moisture [VLM] Cleaning is an interim method of cleaning carpets between HWE cleanings.  It's lower cost provides a more efficient method to keep carpets looking great year-round.

The Benefits of Utilizing VLM Carpet Cleaning

  • Lower Cost - savings typically range from 40-60% when compared to the Hot-Water Extraction method making VLM a good solution for cleaning carpets more frequently than once per year.

  • Fast Dry Time - the carpet is dry within 2 hours of cleaning.

  • Less Wick-back of Stains - because this method uses Very-Low Moisture in the carpet cleaning process, the ability for stains to wick-back and reappear after the cleaning is drastically diminished.

How does VLM Carpet Cleaning work?

This method incorporates encapsulation chemistry with Orbital technology to achieve clean carpets for a fraction of the price of HWE.  During the first stage in the cleaning process, a detergent solution is sprayed onto the carpet which break down embedded soils.  An orbital machine, equipped with carpet cleaning pads, is then used to agitate the carpet fibers to further break down and remove soil.  The head of the machine creates small oscilations at 1725 rpm and simultaneously rotates in the opposite direction; effectively cleaning the carpet fibers from multiple angles.

After the soils have been broken down and partially removed, encapsulating polymers trap the remaining soils that are suspended in the solution.  These polymers dry and harden in the form of tiny crystals with soil encapsulated within.  These crystals can be vacuumed out of the carpet following a 24-hour period, yielding clean carpets.
