Most Popular Ways to Clean a Carpet at a Commercial Property

These days, there are several solutions to commercial carpet cleaning. However, not all of these methods are equally as effective or safe. It can be confusing to figure out what commercial carpet solution is best for your commercial property, especially when you hear terms that are unfamiliar to you. We are going to go over the most popular ways you can clean a carpet at a commercial property.

Bonnet Cleaning

Bonnet cleaning is generally considered a low-moisture cleaning system. This process will only clean the carpet fibers on the surface. It is unable to get deep down into the carpet for a deep clean.

Dry Foam Cleaning

Dense foam is produced by a dry foam machine using liquid detergent that is aerated mechanically. A pre-conditioner is sometimes used before the foam detergent is used. The foam is distributed and agitated using a mechanical brush. Suspended soil and foam are then taken out with the same machine or alternatively, with a wet vacuum.

Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning

Cleaning a commercial carpet using this method requires an encapsulating chemical to be sprayed onto a carpet. It then needs to get brushed into it using a cylindrical or rotary brush machine or bonnet. The encapsulation chemicals go around each soil particle and crystallize it, so it is unable to attract more dirt. The encapsulated soil particles are then removed from the carpet fiber using normal vacuuming.

Restorative Hot Water Extraction

A hot water extraction is sometimes called steam cleaning. This type of commercial carpet cleaning may include rotary shampoo cleaning or agitation of a pre-conditioner, thanks to the use of a counter-rotating brush machine.


When a carpet is cleaned using shampoo, a high-foaming detergent is applied to the carpet using a shower or channel-feed brush that rotates at a high speed. A pre-conditioner is sometimes used prior to shampooing, although it is not required.
