How to Perform Dry-Foam Carpet Cleaning08/29/2013 Back To Blog
There are different methods for doing home carpet cleaning today, from plain vacuuming to carpet shampooing and “dry-foam” cleaning. The dry foam method often has similarities with conventional rug shampooing, because both techniques use a specialized cleaning apparatus. With dry foam cleaning however, the rug usually dries in just over an hour, since the dry-foam vacuum cleaner creates thick foam which the machine brushes horizontally to lift dirt and grime, and trap it within the foam. Here are a number of helpful ideas on how to perform dry-foam residential carpet cleaning.
Prepare the Area First
Before starting the dry-foam cleaning process, make sure you prepare the area to be cleaned first by placing “wet floor” signs around the area, to prevent accidents. Using a conventional vacuum cleaner, remove all surface dirt next, and use a crevice tool for eliminating dust from nooks and crannies or hard-to-reach crevices.
Mix the Dry-Foam Solution
After prepping the area, and vacuuming visible dirt, the next sofa and rug cleaning step would be to mix the dry-foam cleaning detergent or solution in a pail or bucket. Make sure you carefully follow the vacuum machine manufacturer’s directions, because too much foam may clog the machine’s extraction unit.
Run the Machine Slowly on the Rug
After preparing the residential carpet cleaning dry foam mixture, it’s now time to turn the cleaning machine on, and apply it on the rug. When applying the foam, walk at a slow but steady pace, to evenly apply the foam solution. Next, turn the cleaning machine around, and vacuum the other side of the area. Your machine’s carpet stain removal actions should be just like the way you mow the loan outside, by overlapping each section of the rug, to guarantee that all areas are covered.
