This video shows one of the steps to a carpet restoration service. Usually carpet restoration is needed after the carpet has been flooded and drained, or if the carpet has been neglected for a long period of time. In most cases a restorative carpet cleaning is needed to try and save the carpet from being replaced or keep it in usable condition. In Tampa FL carpet restoration services are needed after a flooding of a home or business.
This type of cleaning is very aggressive and should be conducted in several stages. Each stage serves a particular function in the restoration process. This video shows one of the end stages, a final buffing of the carpet. Using a bonnet on a buffing machine removes excess moisture after the final cleaning stage. The bonnet is sometimes used in the cleaning stage but it does double duty with the drying stage. After the buffing the carpet is groomed or raked to ensure the fibers are upright, which aids in drying the carpet. Drying the carpet quickly after a restorative cleaning is an essential part of the process.
If your carpet is having problems with excess soil or is damaged due to flooding it might be time for a restorative carpet cleaning. A good carpet restoration service should be able to tell you whether or not your carpet can be restored or if carpet needs to be replaced. If replacement costs less then the restorative service then the answer should be clear.
