Natural Fiber Carpet Cleaning After Natural Disasters
Natural fiber carpets, such as plant and wool fibers, tend to react differently to chemicals and water than synthetic carpets. Improper cleaning can actually damage your carpets beyond repair. Our technicians have the proper training and equipment to effectively clean your natural fiber carpets after a disaster.
Part of effective carpet cleaning is selecting the right technique for cleaning natural fiber carpets. For example, experienced professionals generally avoid using hot water extraction since it usually results in a wet dog smell in natural fiber carpets. Instead, our experts use cooler water to prevent odors.
Cleaning Plant Fiber-Based Carpets
Plant fiber-based carpets, like jute, sisal, and seagrass are gaining popularity but cleaning them comes with its own set of challenges. For example, if too much water is used to clean plant fiber carpets, shrinkage in the fabric can occur. To prevent this, our experts use a minimal amount of water.
Oxidizing agents are commonly used in carpet cleaning; however, they can leave plant fiber-based carpets brittle and hard. Our technicians utilize alternative cleaning techniques and products to prevent this.
Natural fiber-based carpets are wonderful but require specialized treatment, especially after being damaged. The experts at ServiceMaster DSI are trained to address the special needs of natural fiber carpets and can effectively clean them.
