Myth: Steam Cleaning Leaves The Carpet Damp-Therefore I Should Use Only Dry Carpet Cleaning Services
A dry carpet cleaning machine such as a bonnet machine will make the carpet look very good ON THE SURFACE and it will appear very clean. However, in actuality a considerable amount of soil is left in the carpet pile; which will quickly surface and re-soil the carpet. This type method can be desirable for in-between steam cleaning.
Many people believe that hot water damages your carpet. Years ago, carpets were damaged by "technicians" who didn't know how to properly clean using hot water. Today, we know that's false. By washing and then rinsing your carpet with hot water, and proper equipment, your carpet is thoroughly cleaned-in the same way that the person who showers and then rinses off the dirt and soap will be much cleaner than the person who takes only a sponge bath.
