There are various statistics out there on how much dirt a carpet collects over time and how much soil can be contained in one square foot of carpet. For example, colleagues have demonstrated that one pound of soil can easily hide in a square foot of carpeting! So multiply the number of square feet of carpeting in your home by one pound per square foot and imagine the amount of dirt your house could be hiding!
Solving the Hidden Dirt Dilemma
If you have ever lifted up your carpets, you surely saw plenty of dirt underneath them. While vacuuming gets some of this dirt out of your carpet and into the trash, obviously it doesn’t get it all. There’s only one way to consistently pull that dirt out and that is professional carpet cleaning.
Why does professional cleaning work so well? First, our products use hot water to liquify the environment of your carpet. This puts many of the particulates stuck to the fibers into a watery solution. Now suspended in hot water, instead of your carpet fibers, superior suction can easily pull these particulates out of your carpet.
With vacuuming, many of those particulates get entrapped in the microenvironment of the carpet fibers and simply stay there, despite the powerful wind forces they face from your cleaning attempts. In contrast, hot water extraction first flushes them out, much like the force of a tsunami wave, and then pulls them away while contained in that same water. Instead of just using suction, hot water extraction uses a one-two punch of water and suction.
