Low Moisture Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning
Low moisture encapsulation is the process we use for our carpet cleaning service. The following explains what Encapping is and the benefits for your carpet. Vacuuming will remove 85 to 90% of dirt and debris in the carpet. We then pre spray the carpet fibers to help loosen any dirt stuck to the carpet fibers, followed by agitation and removal of the loosened dirt particles.
Encapping is a “very low moisture” (VLM) type of cleaning that uses polymers to encapsulate and crystallize stains and dirt for immediate vacuuming. These polymers act like small sponges. The crystals absorb and hold dirt and soil to be vacuumed out, leaving no sticky residue and providing a deep clean. For the past few decades, encapsulation has gained popularity and garnered a reputation for both commercial and residential carpet cleaning.
What are the benefits of encapsulation cleaning?
Improves carpet appearance
According to the ICS Cleaning Specialist, encapsulation carpet cleaning is proven to result in a preferred aesthetic appearance compared to traditional carpet cleaning methods, keeping the carpet looking cleaner for longer periods of time. The majority of soil is removable by conventional dry vacuuming but oily or sticky soil can leave the carpet dull and unattractive. Encapping traps soil held in the carpet so stains and dirt may finally be extracted and new soil can’t attach itself to carpet.
Faster cleaning and drying times
Wet cleaning methods usually take an extra day for the solution to dry prior to vacuuming. The crystallization process used in encapping allows for immediate vacuuming and overall faster cleaning and drying times.
No sticky residue
Wet cleaning may leave a sticky residue. This residue is known to resoil the carpet faster as new dirt finds ways to stick, causing the carpet to deteriorate. With encapping, the crystals are easy to vacuum out with regular dry vacuuming.
