Hot Water Extraction Method of Carpet Cleaning
The hot water extraction method is by far the most recommended and most used method for cleaning carpets, area rugs, and furniture and upholstery. This method is safe for all of these surfaces as well as people and pets because of the lack of chemicals and it is very effective in removing dust, dirt, and other debris lodged in the carpet fibers. Green T uses this preferred method to offer safe, effective, and environmentally friendly carpet cleaning services.
The hot water extraction method works by applying heated water mixed with a cleaning solution to the surface and extracting it back out. Our hot water extraction machines are truck mounts with engines that heat the water to around 250 degrees and send a mixture of the heated water and a cleaning solution through hoses to the applicator. The applicator propels the hot water and solution mix deep into the carpet fibers at a high pressure to loosen the debris embedded in the fibers. A high-powered vacuum on the applicator immediately removes the hot water solution along with the dust and debris from the carpet. The temperature of the water not only helps to dislodge dirt, dust, and stains, but also sanitizes the surface as it cleans.
There are several advantages to using the hot water extraction method on carpets, area rugs, and upholstery. One advantage is that it is safe for the materials as well as people and pets. The solution used with hot water extraction is not as harsh as chemical cleaners, making it safe for people and pets to walk on the carpet sooner with less of a chance of damaging the surface or leaving residue behind. Another advantage is that the drying time is much faster than other methods. Carpets cleaned with the hot water extraction method can be used within hours of cleaning. The final advantage of this method is that it sanitizes as well as cleans. We heat the water used for this method to temperatures between 220 and 230 degrees Fahrenheit which is hot enough to leave the surfaces effectively sanitized.
