Carpet Cleaning with Low Water Usage
29 August 2016 | (No Comments)

Your carpets are an investment and should be cared for on a regular basis. With daily wear and tear, carpets can become dirty quickly. Vacuuming alone might keep the surface of your carpets looking nice, but down in the fibers the dirt builds up.  At ekoserve, we take pride in the fact that we use eco-friendly carpet cleaning methods to keep carpets looking like new.

Traditional Carpet Cleaning Uses Too Much Water

Most carpet cleaning methods involve harsh cleansers and lots of water. Unfortunately, these methods can leave carpets wet. This can breed mold. The harsh chemicals can be troubling for families who have pets or young children who spend time playing on the carpets. The smell from the harsh chemicals can be irritating for some people, too.

New Methods Care for the Environment

Instead of using harmful chemicals and excessive amounts of water, ekoserve uses an environmentally friendly, green cleanser that is non-toxic and pH-neutral making it safe for children and pets. Along with the green cleanser, our methods use 95% less moisture than traditional carpet cleaners that rely on steam heat. Our green cleanser is gently agitated through the carpet to remove the ground in and unwanted dirt. Then, the dirt is extracted before the carpet is purified to remove allergens, molds, and other microscopic debris.

Most carpet manufacturers recommend a professional cleaning on a regular basis. It is usually two or three times per year. If you have children or pets, it is more recommended to clean your carpets at least three times per year. With all of the dust, mold, and debris that can end up in carpets, indoor air quality can be incredibly unhealthy. Cleaning the carpets can help improve air quality, which improves quality of life.

Why High-Moisture Cleaning is Harmful

Unfortunately, most carpet cleaners that use high-moisture steam cleaning leave more dangers behind than they take with them. With all of the water they use, more mold can actually build up. High-moisture carpet cleaners do not draw all of the moisture back up, so it actually creates a mold build up deep in the fibers and in the padding. High-moisture steam cleaners can eventually damage floorboards, especially if used often. This excessive amount of water also leads to more allergens building up. The only solution is to go with the low-moisture techniques that we use at ekoserve.

Choose Low-Moisture Carpet Care

Our low-moisture carpet cleaning only uses between one to two gallons of water. Compare this to the 20 to 30 gallons used by a traditional steam cleaner. That water not only doesn’t end up in your carpet and padding, but it doesn’t end up in the sewers and in the streets. It is easy to imagine how this dirty water ends up in the streets and in the groundwater. Our new low-moisture method of cleaning carpets is not just good for your home, but also good for the environment around you. Using less water is a good thing.
