Hot Water Extraction

What Is Hot Water Extraction?

Cleaning with Hot Water Extraction Also called “steam cleaning”, although steam is not actually used, this cleaning process uses high pressured hot water to force soil and dirt out and the vacuum sucks the dirt up. The hot the water temperature helps escalate the reaction time. The carpet is thoroughly cleaned with some type of grooming brush, next the carpet is rinsed with a cleaning apparatus. The carpet must be given a sufficient drying time in order to avoid saturation.

HOT WATER EXTRACTION CLEANS YOUR CARPET

 

 

Step 1: Brush-type Vacuuming

• The soil is everywhere Stopping it from entering the building is the key to a successful carpet the program, as industry studies estimate that as much as 94% of the soil in any given facility was tracked in from the outside.

• The more soil we stop from entering the building, the less we have to clean.

• An upright vac with roller brushes for deep agitation does the best job of removing deep down dirt in comparison with the conventional tank vacuum as the carpet tool provided with the machine is not designed to agitate/comb.

Step 2: Shampooing

• Floor cleaning with a scrubbing machine using a special shampooing solution. The developed foam is sucked-off afterwards.

Advantage:
• Intensive thorough cleaning of extremely soiled surfaces. -The most effective carpet cleaning method per se.

But:

• Not suitable for natural fibers (risk of warping due to wetting)
• Not suitable for wool carpets, loose carpets and Persian rugs which might be damaged by high friction)
• The surface becomes very wet. Let it dry thoroughly by using an air blower.
• After extracting the residue a small amount of detergent remains on the carpet. Thus the carpet resoiles more quickly.

Step 3: Rinsing Process

  • The Extractor does rinsing through the injection process. Generally, this process is missing with other agencies, so it leaves behind the sticky residue which attracts dust faster.
  • This process Injects water into the carpet pile to separate the fiber from each other and extracts the dirty water to rinse out thoroughly.

Step 4: Injection Extraction Process

• Vishesh Solution repeats the rinsing process through Hot Water Extraction using counter rotating brush that helps in lifting the crushed pile to improve the acoustics & appearance of the carpet.

Step 5: Drying the Carpet

• Finally, Vishesh Solutions dries the carpet with a blow drier.

WHAT ARE ITS ADVANTAGES?

• Cleaning with Hot Water Extraction Also called "steam cleaning", although steam is not actually used, this cleaning process uses high pressured hot water to force soil and dirt out and the vacuum sucks the dirt up. The hot the water temperature helps escalate the reaction time. The carpet is thoroughly cleaned with some type of grooming brush, next the carpet is rinsed with a cleaning apparatus. The carpet must be given a sufficient drying time in order to avoid saturation.

• Deeper Clean - Hot water extraction Gets out soiling from deep down in the carpet. Hot water extraction offers a much deeper clean than its alternatives, namely shampooing and dry cleaning, which only provides a surface clean. Hot water extraction is also much more effective at removing stains and odours than surface cleaners.

• Combing effect - The Roller brushes help to keep the piles up & it lifts the pile with combing effect.

• Less Residue - The other carpet cleaning methods—those that involve the use of shampoo, a dry cleaning solution or powder -
can leave behind large amounts of residue. When performed properly, hot water extraction leaves your carpets virtually residue-free.

• Environmentally Friendly - When performed using natural, non-toxic cleaning solutions, hot water extraction can be an eco-friendly approach to carpet cleaning. Many alternative cleaning methods rely on harsh chemicals that can pose health risks for people. Thanks to the power of highly-heated water, gentler solutions are sufficient to produce a satisfactory result.

• Acceptance - Most widely used method.

PROBLEMS WITH ROTARY CLEANING

Almost all carpet mills have bonnet prohibition or rotary cleaning prohibition in their warranties. This means that if you have an issue with your carpet and the carpet mill comes out to inspect the carpet and discovers that you’ve been bonnet cleaning, the warranty on the carpet may be voided. The reason for this is the way bonnet/ rotary cleaning is practiced by most cleaners.

Most cleaners who use the bonnet/rotary cleaning method are not vacuuming before cleaning to remove the dry soils that comprise about 80 percent of the soil in the carpet. Bonnet/rotary can become filled with soil in just a couple hundred square feet. And once loaded with soil, the bonnet will not hold anymore; instead, it simply moves the soil from one area to another.

These factors combine to create a damaging force in the carpet. Dry soils that are not removed by vacuuming before cleaning become entangled in the overly wet bonnet/rotary and then scratch and de-luster the carpet fibers themselves, creating permanent damage. The overly wet bonnet/rotary also deposits residues that attract soils when they are dry, creating the need to clean more often.

Recommended By Manufacturers

Most major carpet manufacturers recommend hot water extraction as the most effective way to clean their carpets. And for some types of carpet, hot water extraction is the only safe method. Unless you’re sure that your carpet will not be damaged by alternate methods, opt for hot water extraction - better safe than sorry!
