According to nearly all carpet manufacturers and carpet fiber producers, hot water extraction or steam cleaning is the BEST way to clean carpet. This is the only cleaning method classified as "deep cleaning". All the others are considered "light surface cleaning" or "interim cleaning" because they are incapable of removing soil deep in the pile. Also, all other methods leave large amounts of cleaning agent in the carpet after cleaning. This carpet cleaning method is frequently called steam cleaning due to the fine spray of water used to force dirt out of the carpet which is sucked up by the vacuum slot immediately in front of the spray. This process consists of spraying a solution of water and eco-friendly detergent into the carpet pile and recovering the water and soil with a powerful vacuum into a holding tank. This is done from a truck-mounted unit outside the home with only the hose and floor tool brought inside the home or office. From a health standpoint, the truck-mounted system is preferred because the dirty air and humidity are exhausted outside rather than recirculated around the house. Additionally, truck-mounted systems usually are more powerful than portable units and do a much better cleaning job and get the carpet dry more quickly.
