Chemical Buildup in Carpet
There are many carpet cleaning products on the market, and several strategies used to clean carpets. Dry chemical cleaning is a commonly used technique. In effect, chemicals are used to clean the carpet, but not all of the chemical is extracted from the carpet during the process.
Some experts say that, depending on the chemicals and equipment used, as much as 75% of the chemical can remain in the carpet. This results in chemical buildup over time.
This buildup has a negative impact that is counter-intuitive. Most chemicals work by bonding with the soils in the carpet, thus allowing both the chemical and the soil to be extracted. Unfortunately, this process does not stop when the cleaner leaves the premises. Instead, the chemicals continue right on bonding and locking in dirt, and can actually make your carpet dirtier over time.
This is why steam carpet cleaning is so much better for your carpets! Give us a call today and let’s get started. 952-224-7222
