Commercial Carpet Cleaning
Commercial carpeting can be very challenging to clean utilizing the hot water extraction method. The main problem is that there is no airflow under the carpet; commercial carpet is glued directly to the floor. In your home, this method usually takes about 4 to 8 hours to dry. Because there is no pad between the carpet and floor to allow airflow in a commercial building, it can take several hours longer to dry. Slow drying times usually cause a problem known as wicking. Have you ever had your carpets cleaned and they look great when the job is done, but in the next day or two all your spots and stains come back? That is wicking. When carpet dries too slowly it pulls stains from the backing of the carpet to the tips of the fiber. When cleaning commercial carpeting, wicking is a big challenge.
