Our unique low-moisture system uses 10 times less water than other water extraction methods. Therefore, over-wet carpets will never be an issue with us. The problems associated with over-wet carpets are intensified in a heavily used setting. Over-wet carpets require longer drying times and this can cause large sections of a building to be cordoned off for extended periods of time, causing disruption to the day, especially in a school, hospital, or commercial building which can also lead to serious safety issues. People walking from a wet or damp carpet directly onto a hard-surface floor can slip or fall. Also, wet carpets that are walked on will almost always become dirtier again very quickly. This is because the chemicals and moisture in the carpet act as a magnet, pulling dirt, dust and debris into the carpet fibers.
The long drying time increases the likelihood that mould and mildew will develop, seriously jeopardizing indoor air quality and potentially harming occupant health. With longer drying times, and if traditional carpet cleaning chemicals are used, there is a greater possibility that gases and volatile organic compounds will be released into the air. This can cause allergic reactions and respiratory problems, especially for young children.
Simply put, what falls to the floor like common dust, pollutants and many things that we breathe, tend to stay on the floor until it is cleaned. Properly maintaining the cleanliness of the carpets and floors by using our low-moisture system will lead to improved air quality and a healthier indoor environment that can be seen, smelt, and felt.
