When booking a carpet cleaning service, not everyone realises that there are two different carpet cleaning methods available: Carpet Steam Cleaning and Carpet Dry Cleaning. If you are wanting to know and understand the difference, read on.
At Aussiepro Carpet Cleaning, we ONLY steam clean carpets. This is because we know that steam cleaning is the most deep-cleaning and thorough cleaning method to ensure carpets are cleaned from the surface right down to the bottom of the fibres. We use steam because it allows us to remove dirt and bacteria from deep within your carpets. Steam infused into your carpets loosens all dirt as the steam turns to water, this dirty water is then suctioned away by our machines leaving your carpet clean from the very bottom up.
Considering Having Your Carpets Dry Cleaned? Read This First
You should be made aware that dry cleaning carpets works in an entirely different way. Carpet dry cleaning machines use a large padded surface to buff the tops of your carpet with a cleaning solution – no steam, hence why it’s known as “dry cleaning”. The large padded machine swirls around on the top surface of the carpet which cleans the top of carpets very well but its not reaching down and pulling dirt out of the very bottom.
If you choose a dry cleaning service, your carpets will be dry faster and they will look very clean after the service. However, after a few days you can expect for them to appear dirty again as no dirt has been removed and cleaned out of the bottom, deep fibres of the carpet. Dry cleaning is often a more expensive option.
We always recommend carpet steam cleaning as we firmly believe this method is the only way to ensure that your carpets and upholstery are thoroughly cleaned and you get the results that you pay for.
