What are the 5 Cleaning Methods and How to Do Them?
There are actually tons of cleaning methods available to almost everyone including:
- Dry Foam
- Dry Cleaning
- Dry Powder
- Hot Water Extraction
And we are here to help you identify their differences so you can make the best decision for you and your family.
Shampooing: Not just for your hair
Shampooing is cleaning in circular strokes with foaming cleaning agents that are used on glasses, carpets, and every other surface of your home.
This process is perfect for low dust and dirt areas that may have minimal soils and spills. However, this technique does not have any extraction, but relies on the other cleaning processes to do the job. It may also leave cleaning agent residues if not done properly.
Dry Foam: Faster than Shampooing
Dry Foam is a bit similar to shampooing since it relies on the strength of brushing the spoils and spills off your surfaces. The main difference that they have is that Dry Foams are solutions that are whipped into foam and not applied in its liquid form, unlike shampooing.
This process allows your surfaces to dry up faster than shampooing.
However, keep in mind that this process has the same weaknesses with shampooing. It will need additional steps of other cleaning practices to increase its efficacy.
Dry Cleaning: Midway Through Deep Cleaning
In Dry Cleaning, products are usually mixed with carbonated water and the mist is sprayed into surfaces.
This technique makes drying up very fast because only a very small amount of moist is present. It does an adequate amount of cleaning that is seen by the eye.
However, when it comes to physical dirt like mud, sand, and food spills, it only does little help. This is because dirt contents are not extracted and will need other additional cleaning steps.
Dry Powder: The Adequate Deep Cleaning
Dry Powder cleaning uses powders that were soaked with a solvent. This is then applied to spots that will be cleaned. A brush is first used to put the solution into the surfaces. Once it dries up, the next step will be to use vacuum to remove the solution and other dirt including sand, soil and food spills.
This technique is the fastest to dry out of all the cleaning processes and surfaces can be walked on or touched after. It also does a very good job of doing a deep clean to your home.
However, its efficacy relies on using a powerful professional and commercial vacuum and strong, but safe cleaning solution.
Hot Water Extraction: Thorough Deep Cleaning
Hot cleaning solutions are used in Hot Water Extraction. These are then sprayed with pressure on surfaces that need cleaning. Extraction comes right after through a vacuum.
The dirty solution that was collected in a tank is securely poured into a sanitary waste, leaving contamination impossible in your home.
The main advantage of this technique is that it can flush out tons of contaminants in the surfaces. Most residential and commercial customers prefer this because of its safety and effective sanitation. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Institute of Inspection, Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC) have also approved it.
The only disadvantage in this technique is that it can take a longer time to dry the surfaces up. There is also a possibility of leaving cleaning and dirt residues if not done by professionals.
