BEST WATER FOR EXTRACTING WATER FROM CARPET

BEST WATER FOR EXTRACTING WATER FROM CARPET

carpet cleaning The required materials and tools needed to extract water from your carpet are: Hammer Dust mask Pry bar Utility knife Rags Carpet cleaner Commercial dehumidifier Commercial air mover fan. Carpet pad Bleach, soap and water. Rent a carpet cleaner or a commercial extractor to handle the carpet cleaning  and suck out as much moisture as possible. When it’s time to extract the water, don’t waste time with a wet/dry shop vacuum because it doesn’t have enough power. Rent an extractor or a carpet cleaner instead, one or two air mover fan and a large commercial dehumidifier. Ensure you rent the largest dehumidifier available because big dehumidifiers can remove up to 30 gallons per day.

Extraction is far more effective than dehumidification by about 1,200 times. Move the extractor across the carpet slowly to suck up as much water as possible. This set mustn’t be rushed. When the water is out, the carpeting should be peeled back and the wet pad should be removed. The pad should be cut into strips, rolled up and hauled outside. You can try drying it yourself by rolling it out on your driveway, If the weather is hot, sunny and dry and if that works, you can tape it back together and reinstall it.

Don’t waste time trying dry the old pad because new carpet pad is cheap and replacing the carpet padding alone is less expensive than having to buy new carpet for your home. The carpet should be laid back on the floor. Fire up the air movers and dehumidifier. Keep the temperature at below 75 degrees because a higher temperature will accelerate the growth of bacteria. Steam clean the carpet to sanitize and deodorize properly. Clean the walls, hard-surface floors and other household surfaces with soap and water and sanitize them with a solution of 1.5 cups of chlorine bleach to one gallon of water.
