Low Moisture Cleaning or, also known as, "Dry Cleaning Carpet"
The results in the picture above are typical result when low moisture cleaning is done. I took that photo right here in Harrisonburg.
But first, let’s talk about the realities of "Dry Cleaning".
First and foremost, it really is not dry. It is called Encapsulation cleaning and is done with very little water and cleaning agent. The cleaning agent is sprayed onto the carpet and given time to work. Then a floor buffer with a scrubbing bonnet (just like the picture!) is used to scrub the floor and removed the spots. The soil in the carpet is absorbed by the bonnet or it is encapsulated and left to dry. It will be removed the next time a normal vacuum is used on the carpet. This process can clean several hundred square feet of carpet using only two gallons of water.
Second, this process is great for Berber carpet or commercial grade carpet. We can setup a cleaning program were we clean more often but it cost you less because this process is so much more simple that steam cleaning. However, it is not very effective on standard residential carpet. Steam cleaning is the best method for standard residential carpet.
