What is Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning?

Carpet cleaning not always means a hot water extraction method, although it is the most popular way to clean the carpets. When the time for carpet cleaning comes, people usually imagine a big truck full of heavy duty machines and a heavily sprayed carpet that needs long hours to dry after the hot water extraction cleaning. However, there are some more carpet cleaning methods available that do not include water in the cleaning process. One of them is the encapsulation carpet cleaning. Let’s take a closer look at it.

Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning Procedure

The procedure of encapsulation carpet cleaning starts with vacuuming the carpet. This first step removes about 80% of the soil located on the surface and the middle layer.

Then, with the help of a floor machine, such as the Cimex Cyclone, the encapsulation detergent is applied deep into the carpet’s fibres that are agitated from all sides. The name of the method speaks of the main principle it is based on. The soil is surrounded by the detergent and is encapsulated, forming a kind of a crystal or bubble, which can be easily removed. There is almost no moisture associated with this method, so the detergent easily dries within one hour.

The next step is the removal of the encapsulated soil. It will be removed by the cleaning professionals who will use an industrial strength extraction machine. Moreover, any encapsulated soil left in the carpet will be removed by the carpet owner each time he vacuums the carpet afterward.

The Benefits of Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning

We already mentioned above one of its benefits. It is the use of a minimal amount of water. As a result, the carpet could be used almost immediately after the cleaning. This is very convenient for some places like hotels, offices, restaurants, hospitals, educational facilities, etc. that have high traffic of clients and visitors.

Another benefit includes assurance that the stains are not going to reoccur quickly after the cleaning procedure. Some commercial carpets are directly glued to the flooring. They have stains that are not only located on their surface but deep into the fibres and even below them. On the other hand, the residential carpets may contain dirt deep in their padding, which can re-occur after some time. This hidden soil may be invisible but can wick the carpet. The main advantage of the encapsulation carpet cleaning is that the capsuling detergent reaches the deepest layers of the carpet and those hard-to reach places that other cleaning methods are unable to reach.

What this means is that the process of cleaning continues to do its work even after the cleaning agents leave the house. So each time you vacuum your carpet after the encapsulation cleaning, it will become cleaner and cleaner and more and more dirt will be extracted from it. We can say that this method has a long-term cleaning effect that people can enjoy. All things consider, it is worth to try this cleaning method next time your carpet is unclean.
