Carpet cleaning with dry compound is a low moisture technique. It can be used in both commercial and residential situations.
Dry materials are agitated into the carpet using hand brushes or automated brushing machines. It is important that the compounds are brushed deep down into the carpet pile. While the carpet compounds bind with dirt and stains. Dry compounds must be left for a given time before they are removed.
Removing dry compounds are often performed with a high powered vacuum. A multi-directional approach is used when vacuuming.
