Carpet Cleaning Methods Explained – Encapsulation Cleaning

The carpet cleaning encapsulation method was mainly designed for use in the commercial setting, where the moisture level is very low and fast drying times meant that carpet cleaning resulted in minimal disruption to business activities.I strongly suggest you to visit Fay’s Affordable Carpet Cleaning to learn more about this.

Today, however in the domestic setting, this unique carpet cleaning technology is used more frequently, as customers who are fed up with their carpets taking days or hours to dry out after conventional steam cleaning” are looking for innovative, more user-friendly methods of carpet cleaning.

But how does it work with encapsulation cleaning?

Unique polymer chemistry which is applied to the carpet and which forms separate encapsulating crystals as it dries is at the heart of the process.

The first step of the process is to thoroughly vacuum the carpet to be washed – as should be in any carpet cleaning technique. If you do not vacuum the dry dirt, then applying a cleaning solution to the carpeting will effectively lead to the formation of mud residues in the carpet fibres.

After vacuuming, at the dilution rate sufficient to the soiling level, the encapsulating fluid is sprayed onto the carpet. For a few moments before it is completely swept through the carpet to ensure all the carpet fibres are coated, it is then best to leave the cleaning agent to “dwell”. This brushing is crucial to the cleaning project’s success and can be achieved with a variety of tools, from a bonnet buffer to a brush machine that is contra-rotating.

It’s time, then to let science do its job. The unique technology absorbs dirt and soil from the carpet fibres as the cleaning agent dries, which should only take about 20 minutes, before forming a brittle crystal, in which the dirt is then suspended. The final step in the system is to vacuum these crystals away, taking with them the dirt and soil attached. Any crystals which are not removed by vacuuming remain suspended by the technology at the time of the initial cleaning and can be removed by subsequent vacuuming.

In short, there are a variety of compelling reasons for preferring encapsulation cleaning for your home or office carpets, over more conventional alternatives, some might say old-fashioned:

Encapsulation carpet cleaning requires very minimal quantities of water so that the carpets can be used again very easily, usually in about one hour after completion of the cleaning. This makes encapsulation cleaning especially useful not only in the home, but also where, for example in hotels, guest houses or offices, long downtime after cleaning is not convenient.

The small amount of water used in the cleaning of encapsulation ensures that it is the ideal form of cleaning to be used to ensure that there is no harm to the machine, telephone and other cabling found in offices, often hidden within suspended flooring, which could be vulnerable to overwetting using other techniques.
