The Carpet and Rug Institute recommends using the steam extraction method of carpet cleaning with such machines producing a minimum of 180 degree temperature at the end of the hose with the cleaning tool.
In recent years the equipment used in carpet cleaning services has gotten more efficient, environmentally friendly, more technically advanced and lower in price.
The carpet cleaning industry seems to be shifting away from the trucked-based hot water extraction method and the dry extraction method to what is called "dry moisture or dry steam cleaning."
Moderately costing and the most effective dry steam cleaning machines are now mobile. They can fit in a small van and taken to the job. They may be rolled up steps and plug into a 110 volt outlet.
For an excellent mobile dry steam carpet-cleaning machine, its cost will be around $4,000 or so. Don't be afraid to seek out a used one. Cleaning nozzles and cleaning supplies will run approximately another $500 TO $750.
Another option is leasing. It's less up front money. Generally, after
the leasing period (usually 4 years) the equipment is yours.
How do dry steam machines work?
Superheated at around 375 degrees, they convert water into 96% steam vapor, which is very efficient and very dry.
For example, 8 ounces of water will last nearly 8 minutes as superheated dry steam vapor.
And because of the dry heat, cleaning is very, very thorough.
Multiple manufactures make dry steam cleaning machines.
They all essentially say theirs is the best.
