Portable Apartment Carpet Cleaner

When a  carpet cleaner uses a portable machine to clean your carpets, it is okay. However, there are some drawbacks to portable carpet cleaning machines.

    1. The tank on the portable machine is small with less performance. Your carpet cleaner professional will have to refill the tank with hot water and product. Then, empty the waste tank several times throughout the carpet cleaning. The portable hot water extractor usually holds about 35 liters, which will clean 2 – 3 rooms.
    2. Some Apartment portable carpet cleaning machines will only be as hot as it was when it came out of your tap. As the water sits in the tank of the portable carpet cleaning machine, it will cool down. So, the professional carpet cleaner must work quickly to maximize the hot water temperature.
    3. Apartment portable carpet cleaning machines leave your carpet wetter than more powerful truck mount cleaners.  Because they have less suction. Less suction means more moisture from the carpet cleaning process. Hence, more moisture means your clean carpets will take longer to dry.

Auckland Steam ‘n’ Dry carpet cleaners use portable carpet cleaners for high rise and apartment cleaning only.

Truck Mount Carpet Cleaner

The other type of hot water extraction carpet cleaning machine is a truck mount machine. Truck-mounted hot water extractors are the best tools for carpet cleaning. Truly, truck mount machines are just that, mounted in your carpet cleaner’s truck. The machine stays in the truck throughout the cleaning process. Your carpet cleaner connects hoses to the machine. Then, brings these clean hoses into your house to clean your carpets.

There are two major advantages to the truck-mounted hot water extraction machines.

Firstly, truck mount machines have the ability to heat the cleaning water up to 85Cº. Also, keeping it at that temperature throughout the cleaning! The truck mount machine uses an extremely powerful gas engine to heat the water. This hot water is absolutely crucial to achieving a heavy-duty clean! The difference between cleaning with water that is 85Cº and with water that is, let’s say 45Cº (your hot tap water temperature), is incredible. Thus, properly heated water is one of the keys to a super clean carpet.

The second major advantage of truck-mounted carpet cleaning machines is their incredible suction power. Your professional carpet cleaner will use the high-powered vacuum hose to remove the cleaning solution, water, and soils from your carpet. Indeed, the truck mount machine deposits all of this in the recovery tank inside the carpet cleaning truck. This strong suction, again provided by the powerful gas engine, helps remove as much moisture from your carpet as possible. In fact, removing this moisture cuts down on the drying time for your carpet.

The natural non-toxic carpet cleaning products are biodegradable and they specialize in cleaning dirty carpets effectually. They reduce the effect of allergic reactions caused by toxic chemicals that are used to treat the carpets. Likewise, these cleaners also minimize the chance of mould growth as they are dry. Simply one of the best carpet cleaning methods.

Auckland Steam ‘n’ Dry carpet cleaners use truck-mounted carpet cleaning machines for all work other than the high rise and apartment cleaning only.

Natural Cleaning Products For Your Carpets

Nowadays, more and more people are recognizing the need for using green-friendly carpet cleaning solutions. Using a natural carpet cleaning product can give you a lot of benefits.

The carpet cleaning method that uses 100% natural and organic ingredients removes coffee, tea, and rusts stains. Also, it can effectively remove pet dander, cooking, and smoke odours.

Green carpet cleaning products can protect the carpet fibres from stains and soils. It cleans delicate carpets safely. Also, it does not change the appearance of the carpet.

As natural cleaners do not use harsh chemicals, it does not discolour your carpet. It resists stains, build-up, and spills.

Some natural carpet cleaners are specially formulated with effective ingredients that remove the stains. From the carpet in high traffic areas almost instantly.

It is gentle, noninflammable, and non-toxic. Furthermore, it removes the smell and blots of blood, pet urine, juice. As well as cola.

Chem-Dry Bonnet Method

We no longer use this method as it often damages your carpet fibres. It is okay for synthetic carpets as an interim cleaning only.

Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning

Not effective at all, but very convenient for a homeowner DIY cleaner.

Steam Carpet Cleaning  Types

If you have kids and pets at home, a carpet cleaning machine can be one of the best carpet cleaning methods. Of course, you can use natural cleaning products that are environmentally friendly to use. It is advisable to keep a bottle of natural carpet shampoo so that you can clean spills and stains properly. Of course with the help of the machine.

Therefore, learn to identify the type of carpet you are cleaning. Wool carpets need special care or superior vacuumed truck-mounted. Usually, strong cleaning solutions with very hot water can loosen dyes and make them run. However, before you start, always test a small area. Wool carpets can also shrink if you over wet them so try and minimize the amount of water you use. Get them dry in the shortest time possible. Similarly, use a turbo dryer where possible.
