Low Moisture Carpet Cleaning In San Diego

So what can we do to help conserve water?  I imagine we could just stop using water right??  That will never happen in today’s society, let’s face it!  We would never want to see a water crisis in the future, but depending on how bad it gets in some states of the U.S., we may very well see a long lasting drought.  If you live in California you know that has been a reality.  This state has called for water conservation because of a drought more than once.  They even went as far as to assign specific dates people were able and not able to water their properties on, because it got so bad.  So, for that in San Diego California we offer an alternative cleaning choice between our standard flush and rinse and our low moisture method.  With our low moisture cleaning this is where we use less water to clean your carpet with on the residential end.  We even offer an even lower moisture cleaning method reserved for the commercial office setting and that would be the “dry” cleaning method using a rotary machine.  This one is mostly used on commercial olefin carpet like you might have seen in office buildings or restaurants.  Both of these are great alternative cleaning methods but there would be less or no extraction and that means more dirt left behind.

Encapsulation For San Diego Commercial Properties

We are one of the only multi-method companies that can low moisture or dry clean your carpet correctly because of the equipment we use and our knowledge behind cleaning agents and their applications!  Encapsulation is the best way to go.  What is encapsulation?  Encapsulation is a method used to trap and form a bond between the cleaning agent and the dirt.  Simple, huh?  For example, an encapsulation technique is used to trap or form an outer coating surrounding dirt and grease, suspending it essentially until the next time you choose to run your regular dry vacuum.  Methods best used on commercial grade carpets best used are the ones outlined in this informative article.  These must be used for the highest quality outcome, especially when manufactured with different materials and made thinner and rugged for the industrial setting.

Low Moisture To Dry Carpet Cleaning

As for our low moisture carpet cleaning technique using our truck mount machine, an emulsifier is applied to your carpet in a way to where it is strong enough to loosen up grease and grime, but won’t saturate your carpet at all to allow the heavy liquid escape our grasp and make its way down into the sub-layers of carpeting which would be the backing, padding, and wood sub-flooring or concrete slab foundation.  Once that cleaning agent has had sufficient time to dwell and dissolve or loosen up the dirt, grease, and grime, we then perform a low moisture extraction process.  This technique generally does not tend to flush and rinse the dirt and grime and cleaners we used to clean your carpet with, because of the lower pressure and less output of water.  Amazingly carpets don’t tend to be left with unwanted filmy residue that tend to make for quicker re-soiling of carpets because of that.  The best way hands down for a carpet to be thoroughly and completely cleaned is with a proper flushing and rinsing to get rid of the contaminants and cleaners being used.  Our low moisture cleaning technique is however, an excellent alternative to high flow, flush, and rinse techniques when conscious about wasting the least amount of water possible.  Watch the video below for an example of dry commercial or encapsulation carpet cleaning.
