pristine carpet care - vital considerations
Let?s compare carpet cleaning methods, nearly all of which rely on hot water.
Hot water spray extraction (also known as steam cleaning). This involves spraying a hot water/detergent solution into the carpet under pressure, then extracting the soiled solution with a built in vacuum.
Because there is no mechanical or brushing action this method relies on a very heavy use of hot water. There is no rinse action so a lot of the detergent stays in the carpet and can re-soil very quickly.
Wet shampooing. Here a high foaming carpet detergent is dropped onto a revolving brush and generates foam. The mechanical agitation of the brush and foam dissolves the soil, which becomes suspended in the foam. This must be quickly vacuumed off before it dries. The system offers an excellent initial appearance, but can quickly re-soil due to unremoved foam.
Cylindrical dry foam. There is, of course, no such thing as ?dry? foam; water has to be present to make the stiff suds. Heavy foam is produced and brushed into the carpet pile by motorised brushes and the soil is suspended in the foam, which is vacuumed out when dry. This process is quicker than some others to dry, but still leaves your carpet unusable for about 12 hours. Again, there is no rinse action that can leave a lot of foam behind leading to rapid re-soiling.
Bonnet buffing, or ?skimming?. This is fairly common for quick cosmetic cleaning in contract situations, but is now appearing in the domestic scene with some fairly big names offering franchises. The carpet is sprayed with a detergent solution then skimmed over with a rotary brush that has a skimming pad or looped bonnet attached. As the bonnet skims the wetted surface, it picks up the suspended soil. For this method to be effective, the bonnet must be changed frequently, even in cases of light soiling. Very often this doesn?t happen and the end result is that the dirt from heavily soiled areas is picked up and redistributed to the nice clean areas. Once again, there is no rinse action, so a lot of detergent gets left behind to promote re-soiling.
There is an alternative! Dry Extraction or Absorbent Compound Cleaning.
The great breakthrough - Dry Extraction carpet cleaning methods have been used in the commercial carpet world for years with great success. So much so that the Dry Extraction method has been adopted by most carpet manufacturers worldwide as their preferred method of cleaning and maintaining all floor textile products. here?s why:
None of the problems associated with hot water methods. Dry Extraction is unique, simple and safe. It can never cause side effects or damage as it never over wets the carpet.
The secret lies in the purpose formulated cleanser, a unique emulsion designed to tackle simultaneously both grease and water based soiling. The agent is held in suspension in an organic compound consisting of millions of minute, highly absorbent sponge like particles.
This two-way emulsion is squeezed out of the sponges by a special, purpose-built dry carpet cleaning machine, which carries it deep into the pile where a a secondary action of the machine opens up the carpet pile in two directions - along the weft and along the warp.
The resultant action now begins to dissolve all the ingrained soiling and most of the seemingly permanent stains too, all to be re-absorbed by the organic sponges. Finally, the sponges are removed by vaccum, leaving your carpet completely dry and ready to walk on.

Crawlin? critters and crud: A guide to the slime, grime and livestock that?s living, sleeping, creeping and galloping through your carpet.
Firstly, will you help us? We are trying to find at least one thing that is in your carpet for each letter of the alphabet. All that is left are J, K, N, O, W, Q, W, X, Y and Z. If you can think of something oooh nasty that could be in your carpet, beginning with one of these letters we would be pleased to hear about it for possible inclusion in our next reprint of the consumer?s guide.
Here?s what we have got so far:
Car Exhaust, Chemicals
Dirt, Dust, Dust Mites
Food Particles, Fungus
Germs, Gravel, Grease, Grime, Grit
Pet Detritus, Pollen, Pollutants
Smoke, Soot, Soil

Don?t forget that there are little critters like dust mites and fleas living, hiding, breeding and defecating in carpets all over the country! We aim to help put a stop to this behaviour.
pristine carpet care - 4 steps to clean carpets
If you are thinking about having your carpets cleaned, we encourage you to take these four steps:
Make a commitment to do it! Like so many things, carpet cleaning is easy to put off. Don?t forget though that all the time you wait, your carpet is being abraded by walking in the grit of everyday living, and your family is breathing in all the pollutants that a soiled carpet can hold.
List your objectives. Do you just want some dirt or specific stains removed? is this something you could achieve yourself with a Vax or rented shampooer? Or do you want to remove all the bacteria, fungus, chemicals and dust mites as well? If so, you will need the services of a professional carpet cleaner using methods suitable for your particular carpet and your particular needs.
Ask questions The only way to learn about a prospective supplier is to ask specific questions and listen carefully to their answers. Here are 8 questions we feel are vital when choosing a carpet cleaner:
What method of cleaning do you recommend - and why?
What type of equipment do you use?
What will your equipment/process remove from my carpet?
How often should I get my carpets cleaned?
How long have you been in business?
Do you train your technicians?
Do you carry adequate insurance?
Do you guarantee your work?
Once you are satisfied that you are dealing with an honest, competent, professional company invite them round to give you a firm quotation (make sure they don?t charge for this!). The written quotation will give you peace of mind and eliminate nasty surprises as you will know exactly what your job will cost. Following these four steps should give you all the information that you need to make an informed decision. There is no end of companies that will offer a quick, cheap cleaning job, or you can rent the equipment and DIY, but if you want a cleaning service that will remove the bacteria, fungus, chemicals, pollens, tobacco smoke, grease from car exhaust fumes and cooking oil as well as those little critters that we keep talking about, then call us for a firm quotation and a totally professional approach to cleaning your carpets.
