Carpet Cleaning

Carpet cleaning is normally done in three possible ways:

  • dry cleaning – Americans often refer to this as VLM – very low moisture, which is a bit more correct.
  • compound cleaning – where a powder is added to the carpet, it’s agitated and then vacuumed out.  If you have ever heard of an American system called Host, it uses this method.
  • steam cleaning – the most common.  As it uses hot water, the correct name is hot water extraction, but when people see steam billowing off the carpet, it’s easy to see why steam cleaning is the popular terminology.
