Carpet cleaning, especially in buildings that see heavy footfall such as offices, shops and show homes is an essential activity, albeit many a times it feels like a grudge purchase. Bonnet cleaning is a relatively new method that can brighten up even the most tired carpets without the need for downtime for drying.

So what is bonnet cleaning? Sometimes called spin cleaning or even “dry cleaning”, this method uses a rotary floor machine with a cleaning pad soaked in a cleaning solution. Basically, this method involves spraying a chemical on top of the carpet surface, which is then covered by the rotating machine, which has an absorbent pad attached to it. This pad spins at high speeds and vigorously brushed the carpet fibres enabling dirt and spots to be lifted and transferred onto the bonnet pad.

The cleaning solution used with bonnet machines uses a natural PH crystallising shampoo with high foam, ideal for carpets and fabrics. However, one of the most effective bonnet cleaning methods that guarantees removal of dirt is liquid encapsulation. This method involves pre-spraying the carpet, bonneting over it and then vacuuming up the resulting (dirt-encapsulated) foam that rises to the surface.

The major benefits of bonnet cleaning are that it is clean, easy to manoeuvre and it dries very quickly, so the carpet can be stepped on almost immediately, which is essential for places like sales offices and show homes. After all, the heavier the footfall, the better the sales!

Bonnet cleaning is ideal for spot cleaning and to maintain the look of a carpet (weekly or monthly). What’s more, regular bonnet cleans for carpets that have a history of being exclusively bonnet cleaned maintains the carpet fibre for longer.

So if you are looking for a reliable, periodical carpet cleaning service why not give bonnet cleaning a go? Cost-effective and easy to fit in, this method will have your carpets looking like new without any long waits for drying times.
