They will then gauge the amount of dirt on the carpet and stains that need to be removed. They will estimate the time it will take to dry out the carpet after cleaning before they arrive at the final cost of the cleaning process that they will put in place. Most companies use hot water extraction or steam cleaning for their process. In this the carpet is treated with hot water or steam with some cleaners. A solution is sprayed on the surface of the carpet and a wet vacuuming process followed to remove all the dirt and grime. Stains may be treated before this process. The vacuuming process helps to dry the carpet. Some companies may advocate the use of shampoos that are brushed into the carpet with circular rotary brushes. Carpets can also be dry cleaned by using chemical agents. In this process the carpet is vacuumed, stains are removed and the chemical agents used to treat the carpet. Commercial areas are best cleaned with the use of cleaning agents that are spread onto a carpet and then vacuumed.
