Having freshly cleaned carpets are great, but one of the frustrations that many people have is the drying time. It’s not uncommon for people to wait for up to half a day for their carpets to dry. Additionally, people usually have to vacate the premises or space while the carpets are being cleaned. There is another solution that people can take advantage of – encapsulation cleaning (also known as Very Low Moisture or VLM Cleaning).

What is encapsulation cleaning?

Encapsulation cleaning involves the use of specialized carpet cleaning machines and chemical technologies to create very low moisture when cleaning carpets. The chemicals that are applied to the carpet end up bonding with soil particles within the carpet and turns it into a dry residue, which is then easier to remove with the use of a deep cleaning machine such as a rotary machine, brush applicator or vacuum.

Why is it more beneficial to get encapsulation cleaning?

The drying time is significantly quicker when compared to a wet-cleaning system. For properties that operate a commercial operation, this minimizes the amount of downtime for the business. This minimizes any potential lost opportunity costs with customers and productivity costs from staff not being able to fulfill their job duties. There are health benefits as well, since the carpet cleaning reduces allergens that’s within the carpet. Thus it helps to reduce employee absenteeism.
