Dry carpet cleaning is one of the most efficient ways to clean all types of carpet without the use of water. The system is simple, reliable, environmentally responsible and above all economical, where the products do the hard work for you, reducing labour, downtime and waste.

How Dry Carpet Cleaning Works

Dry-Carpet uses a cleaning powder, slightly moistened with just the right amount of detergent and wetting agents it is sprinkled over a carpet. The GEN4 CRB (counter-rotating brush) machine is then used to agitate the granules deep into the carpet pile, which get straight to work to absorb dirt and deodorise the floor. Once complete, these granules are then vacuumed away leaving behind a dry, clean carpet, ready for immediate use.

No downtime

One of the main benefits of dry carpet cleaning is the rapid drying time – a significant factor for busy homes as well as businesses and facilities. Dry carpet cleaning is exactly that, it cleans carpets whilst keeping them dry. This method is extremely popular with those that require a quick turnaround as carpets are cleaned and can then be put back into immediate use. Traditional wet cleaning can require anything up to 48 hours to fully dry – meaning sections of a building must be fenced off or closed completely until dry.

No sticky residue or water marks

Wet carpet cleaning uses vast quantities of water. By using such a volume of water, the operator risks causing water damage to furniture, fixtures and of course the carpet itself. As no water or heavy liquid detergents are applied with a dry carpet cleaning powder there is no risk of watermarks or sticky residue being left behind.

Shrinkage and expansion

Some types of carpet are at risk of shrinkage or expansion, which is caused by sudden dramatic changes to its temperature and moisture content. Dry carpet cleaning adds very little extra moisture to a carpet and is always room temperature so the risk of any type of shrinkage/expansion is zero.

Mildew or mould

When there is a lot of moisture and limited ventilation/poor drying conditions mould or mildew can become a problem. Not only can this be costly but can also pose as a health risk to customers and staff. There is no risk of mould or mildew when dry carpet cleaning. In fact, the Cleantec dry carpet cleaning system uses environmentally responsible products so indoor air quality is never compromised.
