As a professional carpet cleaner I have seen this dry carpet cleaning method at several shows and conventions. Every time I seem it demoed I ask how much of the cleaning material is left behind in the carpet? No one can seem to give me a solid number. I blurt out 20%, 30%, 10%? All I get is blank stares as if I've asked to see under the hood of a magical spacecraft of some kind. With out getting an answer I ask "what happens to the material left behind in the carpet?" After a long pause, again, the person demonstrating says "It doesn't matter it just keeps cleaning."
Wait. It doesn't matter? Of course it matters. I don't some mysterious material sitting in my carpet collecting dirt, filling the carpet with junk.
As a professional carpet cleaner I know how difficult it can be to get carpet clean. I also know that what ever cleaning system you use you're leaving something behind in the carpet, even if it is just water. The residues left behind in a carpet make a big difference in how clean your carpet is.
