This video shows a typical dry carpet cleaning method. In the carpet cleaning industry, this method is called a tank and bonnet cleaning. It involves pre-spraying a carpet cleaning solution that emulsifies soils and suspends them in liquid. Then the carpet is buffed with a cotton bonnet on a low-speed buffer to soak up, or extract, the cleaning solution and the suspended soils.
The tank and bonnet method is an older method used by many carpet cleaners around Tampa FL. It's a very low moisture carpet cleaning that can remove a good amount of surface soil while leaving the carpet close to dry. Chem-Dry started using this type of cleaning over 40 years ago, but we have evolved and now use a low moisture steam cleaning process that provides a much better carpet cleaning.
Low moisture steam cleaning is considered to be a dry carpet cleaning with very small dry times of about 2 hours. Chem-Dry's version of dry carpet cleaning is called hot carbonated extraction and it's 66% more effective than our previous tank and buffer carpet cleaning.
