The battle to minimize soil damage when carpet cleaning

As much as 79 per cent of the soil that collects on carpets is made up of dry sand particles. These soils are often abrasive or gritty. They can wear down the carpet cleaning machine and cause it to appear dull. Loose soil can work its own way to the very bottom of a pile. When foot traffic is present, the edge of the fibers are cut when the razor-sharp edges come into contact with the fibers.

Cleansing residue from carpets can be a challenge for the appearance and wearability of soft flooring. It is possible for cleaner residue to cause rapid resoiling. This can lower carpet appearance, even though it may be clean.

These soils can be difficult to clean. This is because the items have a tendency to adhere, cure, or dry onto the fiber and are not easily removed using dry vacuuming. It takes a lot of moisture, chemical agents, and agitation in order to get rid of these soils. Landscaping soils are difficult to get rid of if they are very small or contain pigment or dye that sink into the fiber and become permanent.

Left unattended these particles of soil can even cut fibers from the bottom. As the pile thins, it can cause wear in the carpet.

This soil comes from cooking, heating, automobile exhausts, etc. These soils are produced by heating systems, cooking and exhausts from automobiles. This soil type has a high acidity. This is why most carpet detergents tend to be on the acidic side of pH scale. The mildest alkaline cleaning products, combined with detergency and sufficient strength to remove the soils will neutralize any acidity.

This means that the carpet has a large amount of dirt and food particles. There are also fibers, hairs and fibres. Dust mites are attracted to the carpet, as well as mold and bacteria. All of us shed skin each day. That contributes a lot to dust, and that also ends up on the carpet. Microbes love it.

To maintain soft floor surfaces, it is crucial to understand the types of soils and choose the appropriate cleaning products. The best ways to minimize or eliminate filtration contamination are hard to find. It is possible to reduce the amount of soiling caused by filtration. This can be done by sealing any cracks on your floor, under baseboards, or along edges and corners of stairs. To keep air as clean as you possibly can, reduce indoor air pollutants like cooking fumes or smoke, candles burning, cigarette smoking, etc., as well as install and replace high efficiency HVAC air filter.
