How does encapsulation carpet cleaning work? It is a dry carpet cleaning method that uses small amounts of moisture which is used as part of the interim scheduled maintenance of carpets for commercial and industrial premises. But how does it really work?
When using the traditional carpet cleaning methods, the carpets take a long time to dry due to the products used in the cleaning process. Another problem is that the chemical residues attract dirt, so the carpets are dirty again within a very small period of time. In the long run this increases the costs of carpets maintenance. The most widely used technique for carpet cleaning is emulsification. This method uses chemicals that help suspend the soils by eliminating surfactant molecules. These molecules are attracted to the dirt particles, making it easy to remove them. Although this appears to be an effective way of cleaning carpets, when the rinsing is not undertaken properly, residues remain present in the carpet.
The carpet encapsulation method, on the other hand, uses chemicals that do not leave any particules in the carpet. Although detergents, solvents and surfactants are present in most of the chemicals used for encapsulation carpet cleaning, there are also two major components that make a major difference between these products and the ones used during the traditional carpet cleaning methods. These are:
All products are different and the quality of the chemicals used in the production of encapsulating cleaning products can vary a lot. Therefore, it is crucial to do some research and to be very careful when buying these products in order use of all the properties and benefits these kinds of chemicals have to offer.
The encapsulation cleaning technique can’t be undertaken without a suitable machine that has brushes that can be planetary, rotary, cylindrical or orbital. Their main function will be to scrub the carpet with the encapsulation chemicals. There are also some machines that include pad holders, so that bonnets or pads can be used as needed.
The encapsulation carpet cleaning technique is perfect for cleaning carpets that are not too dirty or soiled. The easiest is to do it in between deep cleaning processes such as hot water extraction. This way the deep cleaning processes won’t be needed too frequently.
The application of the carpet encapsulation cleaning method is ideal for:
The encapsulation cleaning method is not a technique recommended for deep carpet cleaning. However, it is a great solution for interim maintenance of commercial premises where carpets need regular cleaning. Although this cleaning method has its limitations, if used correctly and as part of a more complete and thorough carpet cleaning program, important benefits and cost savings can be achieved.
