Carpet Cleaning Services Lynnwood
Have you ever had to suffer the frustration of having spots and stains resurface soon after a traditional carpet cleaning? The reappearance of spots and stains can be a common problem. Even when cleaned by a professional. The problem is commonly known as wicking or wick-back.
Sometimes, spots can reappear as soon as the carpet dries or even after several days have passed. This can be quite irritating. Especially when you see spots and stains re-emerge on a carpet you thought was just professionally cleaned.
Stains that resurface as a result of wicking originate below the carpet strands. In these cases, the original stain has not only dirtied the carpet strands, but it has also penetrated into the carpet backing and padding.
While working to remove a persistent stain, the carpet cleaner may have used too much water. Excessive moisture can saturate the area and allow water to penetrate into the carpet padding. The water mixes with the stain below the surface and becomes dirty.
Some of this dirty water is pulled out of the carpet during the cleaning process, but much of it remains behind in the carpet. As the carpet dries, this dirty water gradually wicks upward into the carpet strands and becomes visible.
So if spots and stains reappear as soon as the carpet dries, wicking is most likely to be the issue.
The Solution: Dry Carpet Cleaning
At Greenworks we use a different method of carpet cleaning called dry extraction. The method starts with a through commercial vacuuming. This is followed by a very light mist of an all-natural detergent. We then apply an application of an organic absorbent cellulose product which is brushed into the rug using our exclusive carpet renovating machine. After this process is complete, the absorbent material is extracted from your carpets taking all of the dirt and grime with it.
The results are amazing! Your carpets will be clean, groomed, and dry before we leave! Call Greenworks Carpet Cleaning in Lynnwood Today!
