How do I get my rug deep cleaned by a professional?

by alfredharry

Deep cleaning your rug is an important maintenance item that should be on your checklist to keep your rug in good condition for as long as possible and to extend its life.

There are different ways to clean your rugs. Which ones can you count on when you hire a professional rug cleaning company?

Here are some of the most common methods of professional rug cleaning.

Hot Water Extraction (HWE):

This is a common method of cleaning rug in Sydney, also known as steam cleaning. This method involves pumping a detergent under high pressure with hot water into the rug fibers to dissolve the soil. Typically, after the cleaner is applied, the rug is scrubbed with a brush and rinsed. The rug should then be dried. The length of time this process takes depends on the total surface area of the rug, but it should take at least a few hours for the rug to be cleaned and dried.


In this process, the detergent uses a synthetic detergent base which, after drying, crystallizes into a powder. In this way, dirt particles caught in the rug fibers are encapsulated in the powder after the cleaning foam dries and can be easily picked up with a vacuum cleaner or brush. This process uses less water than shampooing and therefore requires less drying time and leaves less chemical residue.

Shampoos are still popular in rug cleaning, but they are no longer the first choice of cleaning professionals, as they have been replaced by encapsulation and hot water extraction. Shampoos are effective, but they leave a wet lather, take a long time to dry, and can make rugs sticky. The long drying time has made shampooing unnecessary in some areas, but most cleaners still offer this service.

Bonnet Cleaning:

This cleaning process is really only intended to clean the top layer of rug fibers. This is done by using a motorized machine with a rotating belt that is immersed in a cleaning solution. This method is commonly used in hotels, schools, large commercial premises, and office buildings. Rugs in high traffic areas can be cleaned easily and effectively, even without much moisture. This method is not suitable when deep cleaning or cleaning of a small area is required.

Dry rug cleaning:

This cleaning technique, also known as a combination cleaning, is becoming increasingly popular because it is effective and does not require drying time. Because of its convenience, it is used in a wide variety of environments, including 24-hour facilities where other cleaning methods are not suitable.
