With a deeper clean than vacuuming alone and less disruption than hot water extraction, encapsulation carpet cleaning can be a valuable part of any carpet maintenance plan. If you are unsure about introducing encapsulation into your cleaning rotation, then here are the top three benefits of this type of carpet cleaning.
Encapsulation carpet cleaning involves encapsulating soils in a cleaning agent, and then vacuuming the dried crystals away.
When performing encapsulation cleaning the carpet does not become soaked with water as it does with hot water extraction. The low moisture encapsulation cleaning method allows carpet to dry within about 90 minutes, meaning that facilities will experience less downtime and cleaning staff can work efficiently and quickly over large areas. Perfect for facilities that need a quick turn around such as (movie theaters, bowling alleys, day cares, hotels, banks and more....
In addition to faster dry times, less water means no wicking or resoiling. Wicking occurs after carpet stains are treated with cleaners and water; as the water evaporates, soils remaining at the bottom of the carpet fibers travel up to the visible surface of the carpet and make the stain reappear. Encapsulation avoids this problem by not oversaturating the carpet fibers, and trapping all the soil within the polymers that are then vacuumed away.
Perhaps the most significant benefit of encapsulation cleaning is the improvement in carpet appearance and a longer life cycle for your facility’s carpets. Regularly removing embedded soils with encapsulation cleaning prevents the buildup of sticky residues that can attract more dirt and make your carpets look visibly soiled.
