Did you know berber carpet refers to a style of carpeting not a fiber? Berber carpet is a looped carpet that is generated from polypropylene (olefin), nylon, wool, polyester, or a mix of these fibers. Berber created with a mix of these fibers are a challenge cleaning. The loop design hides dirt very well. McCreary’s Healthy Homes has 46 years of experience and are the best carpet cleaning DeWitt MI.
The loop style carpet is very durable and can be the most stain resistant carpet fiber if made with 100% polypropylene. This style of carpet is attracted to oil based soil. These oily spills will stick to the fibers like glue. Your pets, shoes or even human oily skin can show dark patches on berber. In the picture above, you can see the spots that look like shadows but are oily residue.
The dirt hides in the fibers so well, a thorough vacuum is required before cleaning the carpet. Vacuuming is a challenge because the fiber will remind you of velcro. The dirt hides very well and the surface collects miscellaneous things like a magnet. Most household vacuums are not powerful enough to do a good job.
The majority carpet manufacturers recommend the hot water extraction method to uphold a carpet warranty. Our truck mounted system is very powerful and has unbelievable vacuum strength. The system we use is the solution to the oily spots that stick tough to fibers. The temperature of the water can reach heights of 220 degrees eliminating most spots and stains. The results are clearly impressive.
Having the knowledge we do about cleaning different fabrics and our owners doing all the work is our competitive edge. The drying process of berber needs special attention. We don’t want those oily spots wicking back up. As we are cleaning we bring an industrial air blower to help speed drying time. After the job is complete and we leave please bring fans out to help circulate air throughout your home.
