About Carpet Cleaning Machines

Keeping  carpets   clean  can be time consuming and at times it may be physically tiring. Because it is a difficult job, getting the right  carpet   cleaning  machine is crucial as this will help not only cut down on time but also  clean  your  carpets  correctly and effectively. With the right machine you will be able to remove stains, help prevent damage to your  carpets , and in doing so prolong its lifespan and good looks.

The Vacuum Cleaner

There is a wide and at times eclectic range of  carpet   cleaning  machines on the market. The most common are the vacuum cleaners yet even here there are a few different styles to choose from. The “upright vacuum” is one choice while the “canister vacuum” is another. Many people also prefer the “hand-held vacuum” for use on stairs or other areas where a normal vacuum cannot reach. While not as strong as the other two types “hand-held vacuums” are a good household addition.

The “upright vacuum” can be used with either one or two motors. Each motor is designed for the type of dirt as well as the type and the frequency it is used. These types of vacuum cleaners have rotating brushes that are able to scrub stains while vacuuming. However they are not suitable for all types of  carpets  as their brushes may cause damage to the pile.

“Canister vacuums” on the other hand are versatile, small and easy to store. They offer only one motor and a hand held nozzle that glides over the surface of the  carpet . Without the use of agitating brushes they are able to minimize damage.

A vacuum cleaner however is only good for extracting surface dirt.  Carpets  do entail more in-depth  cleaning  in order to prolong their use, their looks and minimize damage. Trapped dirt deep within the fibers acts like small knives and with friction will eventually cut the pile and cause damage to the  carpet  permanently.

While a vacuum cleaner is an indispensable machine for daily maintenance it is only able to extract a small percentage of trapped dirt and dust.

 Carpet   Cleaning  Extractors

This type of cleaner is used for deep cleaning or for use on stubborn stains. It is able to extract dirt from deep within the pile of the  carpet , not just the surface. This machine works by injecting the  cleaning  solution deep into the  carpet  pile and extracting the dirt trapped there.

Steam  cleaning   carpet  units work by means of extraction using steam to draw out the dirt trapped within the fibers. This machine is particularly effective for getting to dirt that has seeped deep within the  carpet . By injecting steam it loosens the dirt and brings it closer to the surface where it can be vacuumed up. However this type of machine leaves residual of moisture behind. The  carpet  needs to be thoroughly dried before use as any movement on a wet  carpet  will cause the pile to lie down and look used and unattractive.

Both types of extraction  carpet  cleaners come in a variety of sizes and offer a host of attachments and accessories. The size should be applicable for what its intended use is while the choice of attachments and accessories are aimed at addressing specific problems such as stains or high traffic area dirt.

Dry Extraction  Carpet   Cleaning  Machines

A dry  carpet   cleaning  machine is a type of extraction cleaner which uses a different type of shampoo either in the form of a powder or dry foam. The machine forces the cleaner deep into the fibers bringing the dirt to the surface. Thereafter it is simply vacuumed away leaving the  carpet  dry and ready for use.

Selecting the right  carpet   cleaning  machine

It is essential that  carpets  are kept optimally  clean . While a vacuum  cleaner  is good for daily maintenance  carpets  require deeper  cleaning  on a regular basis. When it comes time for selecting your  carpet   cleaning  machine you need to make sure that it is right for your application. In order to select the right one you need to first consider how you will be using the machine, how large your  carpeted  areas are and what type of  carpet  you have.
