VLM carpet cleaning
Even if you vacuum your carpet every day and try not to spill anything on it, dust, dirt, allergens, and bacteria will still stick to it. Debris gets stuck in the fibers of your carpet after being brought in by your pets or on the bottoms of your shoes. Professional carpet cleaners use methods that are tough on stains, ground-in dirt, and allergens while also using the best methods to make your carpet last longer. The old way of cleaning is called “hot water extraction” or “steam cleaning.” Pumping hot water and detergent into the carpet and then vacuuming up the water, stains, and debris is a method that has been used for decades. It works well for old carpets and stains that are hard to get out, but the long drying times and large amounts of water used may be too much for newer carpets or stains that aren’t too bad.

In the past few years, new technology has come out that uses less water but still gets stains out. Very low moisture (VLM) carpet cleaning is a quick-drying alternative to the usual way of cleaning carpets, which means you can use your carpet again quickly.

How VLM cleaning (very low moisture) works
Very low moisture carpet cleaning is a newer method that uses a cleaning compound mixed with water and sprayed on the carpet. When the cleaning solution comes in contact with dirty carpets, the compounds in the solution work to deep clean the carpets while using less water than the traditional hot water extraction method. We use machines that work the cleaning agent deep into the carpet by spreading it out. With this technology, dirt and grime can be wrapped up and taken off with a brush or a vacuum. When you clean your carpet with very little water, it will be dry in 30 minutes to a couple of hours, so you can use the room again almost right away. This is a good choice for families who don’t want to walk carefully on wet carpets for up to a day. This is also a great solution for offices and schools that can’t stop people from using the computers while they dry.

Benefits of having VLM clean your carpets
VLM carpet cleaning is a green way to get your carpets clean. It usually only needs about 5% of the water that a hot water extraction method does, which cuts drying time by a lot. We also have green carpet cleaning products for cleaning VLMs in a natural way.
