Method 5 : Crystallisation Absorption Carpet Cleaning

This method will clean the top half of any carpet pile.

  • The success of the method relies totally on a crystallising foam formulation which is scrubbed into the carpet with a rotary machine.
  • The carpet cleaning solution emulsifies the soil from the carpet pile
  • The water from the carpet cleaning solution evaporates.
  • The residue harden into a dry crystal encapsulating the soil.
  • These soil crystals are then removed at a later stage by normal regular dry vacuuming.

This method is favoured by contact cleaners as its low cost and dry quickly.
