Dry Foam :
The carpet cleaner applies cleaning shampoo to carpet and allows it to dry for some time. One it get dry, then without rinsing it sucks the dried shampoo into a vacuum. This method leaves dirty residue in carpet, which is one reason dry foam is not too effective.
Absorbent Pad :
This method is quite similar to dry foam cleaning method, except that the company sets a large cotton bonnet on your carpet and with a floor polishing buffer machine on top “buffs” the carpet. The rotating motion causes the bonnet to absorb dirt from your carpet.
Dry, Absorbent Powder :
The dry compound method spreads a moist, absorbent powder through the carpet. The powder is allowed to dry and then sucked into a vacuum.
Hot Water Extraction :
This is a fancy way of saying that a hot water cleaning solution under high pressure is forced into your carpet and then sucked out of your carpet.
