How to Clean Your Carpet with Dry Foam
The dry foam procedure is called dry because the content of moisture is very low – 90 percent air and 10 percent liquid. The dry foam machine has a pressure tank. In this tank you will pour a solution of water and shampoo.
The solution is converted into foam by compressor. Using a revolving cylindrical brush, foam is dispensed all over the carpet. The brush will comb the foam through the piles of the carpet so that every fiber of the carpet is cleaned.
To get the best result, the bubbles being produced must be of uniformed size so the foam can finish the cleaning process before it is dispersed. Once the carpet has dried, it is methodically vacuumed to remove the dried crystals of dirt.
The dry foam procedure:
1. To begin with, vacuum the carpet and remove all the stains.
2. Prepare the dry foam solution as indicated by the manufacturer.
3. Shampoo the carpet; once it has dried, vacuum the carpet.
4. Groom the pile to speed the drying process.
5. Use a furniture leg pad to eliminate furniture stains or rust.
Advantages - The process of dry foam cleaning covers a lot of area in a short amount of time. You cannot over saturate the carpet simply because the moisture content is very low.
Disadvantages - The dry foam procedure can remove average levels of soil. However, there is a possibility of excessive residue and soil build up if the machine has inadequate extraction capabilities.
Dry foam is the perfect procedure if you have older carpet. You can rent a machine if you do not think you will use it enough to buy it.
