It is also causes less stress to your carpet and rugs than heavy chemicals and is recommended by the largest carpet and rug manufactures in the world. For best results the Hot Water Extraction method should be preformed by a trained and certified technician.

There are may types of rugs but most of them are usually placed in areas of the house that receive a lot of traffic. Keeping this in mind they also tend to collect more dirt and debris than normal. When having your rugs professionally cleaned the carpet technician may want to bring your rugs to their shop so that they can make use of specialized equipment that can get rid of as much dirt and debris as possible. This may take several steps to complete.

The first step in this process is to place metal grids on the ground. This aids in the cleaning process and allows dirt and debris to separate from the rug. Next the rug is placed upside down on the metal grids. Special equipment known as the “Badger” is then used to vibrate the dirt loose from the rug. The rug is then rolled back to reveal the dirt and debris left behind. At this time the metal grids are rolled up as well, and the debris is gathered from the floor. The rug is rolled out again. It is then vacuumed and disinfectant spray is applied to the entire surface of the rug. Remaining dirt and debris are extracted. After disinfectant spray is applied a specialized wand is used for the extraction of excess debris. The rug is flipped right side up. Disinfectant spray is reapplied and a special comb is used to agitate the rug causing the disinfectant to reach deep into its fibers. The rug agitation, wand extraction, and disinfectant spray are repeatedly preformed until the rug is thoroughly clean.
