Agitation is Important For Carpet Cleaning
Agitation is a simple process that is used to loosen up soil and make it easy to remove from whatever it is on. This process often gets overlooked in its importance even though it is a critical thing to do in carpet cleaning.
For example, let’s pretend we are washing our hands. First you will apply soap (the cleaning agent), then you will agitate your hands by rubbing them together, then you rinse them off in the water to get them clean. Same with washing your car. You put the sponge in the bucket of cleaning product, agitate the painted areas, then rinse it with water for a beautiful finish. As you can see, agitation is an important component of cleaning almost anything.
What would happen if you decided to not agitate whatever it is we are cleaning? Maybe we simply want to apply the cleaning agent and then rinse it off? What would happen to your hands or your car if you did this? Well, not much. They would still look about the same. Below the surface, though, they would not be very clean.
Basically, when you are doing any kind of cleaning, as simple as washing your hands or even something like cleaning your floors, you should never skip the agitation if you want it to be cleaned effectively. Yes, agitation is important if you want your carpets to be cleaned the way they should be.
What does this have to do with having your carpets cleaned in Mobile? Some companies will skip this step and your carpets will still look clean. If they want to give your carpets a thorough clean, though, this is a very important step for them to take. Only through agitation before rinsing will your floors be truly clean. We at Carpet Cleaning Nurse's Touch uses agitation on all our jobs.
If a company you are considering does not use agitation, ask them why and listen to their reasoning. It could be that their prices don’t allow them the time do it and still make money. With lower prices, sometimes important things like this are put aside.
For the companies that use agitation, how does this work? Well, they use a separate machine to do the agitating. After the agitation, they rinse the carpet with another machine. There are many kinds of machines that can agitate the dirt out of the carpet. The most used way is with pads or brushes that massage deep down into the carpet and loosen the soil. This is done in conjunction with a cleaning agent to help remove dirt during the process. Once that step is done, the carpet is rinsed and then usually covered with a stain protector.
If you find that your carpets are dirty, don’t go with a company that merely washes them with water. Find a company, like us, that will agitate the carpets and do a deep clean that will leave your carpets with a beautiful shine, making them almost as nice as the day they were installed.
