Commercial and domestic carpet has become shorter and more densely constructed using new generation fibres that in many cases have been stain treated to repel soil and maintain appearance.
Carpet tiles have also gained in popularity and have placed new pressures on carpet cleaners to gain the best results.
Conventional pile height
Conventional long pile tufted carpet allowed greater airflow when vacuuming and hot water extraction cleaning.
New shorter pile height
Shorter pile, densely packed fibres stop airflow when hot water extraction is used. Leaves carpet wetter with more soilage and detergent left behind.
Too much water and aggressive cleaning products cause problems on carpet tiles. Water staining on tile edges from wick-back, detergent residues cause traffic lane yellowing that is difficult to remove with extraction cleaning. Some solvent containing extraction presprays actually dissolve the binder holding the fibres and cause 'black stain' and delamination.
New generation fibres
New style carpets using new generation fibres are extremely sensitive to sticky detergent residues. These detergents create a problem, particularly on Olefin (polypropylene) fibres because the residue attract oily and walked-in soil.
Stain treated nylon is particularly sensitive to high pH cleaners which degrade the life of the coating.
Dry Fusion solves all these problems
Because the Dry Fusion process is pH neutral (pH 7.2) and doesn't rely on a high pH or wetting of the carpet by water flushing, none of these new fibres cause a problem. By utilizing the constant heat from the rotary cleaning pad we deep clean the carpet, removing the deep set stains at the same time. A FLUORO based stain protector and blocking resin is fused on to every fibre as it is heat dried - the same as the carpet mill. Dust, dirt and grime find it very difficult to stick to a Dry Fusion cleaned carpet.
What about conventional carpets?
Axminsters and Wiltons are very sensitive to water - that's a fact. Because these carpets don't have stabilised backing they shrink easily if over - wet. Joints are also susceptible to splitting.
Dry Fusion's low moisture cleaning provides the ultimate method of removing soil safely. All are cleaned, deodorised, stain protected and heat dried before you leave the job. Wool is such a porous fibre Dry Fusion stain protection is really needed. It works brilliantly in pubs and clubs!
Tufted carpets are most predominant and provide the ultimate test for the Dry Fusion process. Whether commercial or domestic, whatever the fibre, Dry Fusion provides the safest, longest lasting clean. With no wick-back of stains you can guarantee a brightness, cleanness and softness not available in any other process.
