As you already know, the carpets can get dirty in many ways. Children playing on carpets can spill something on the carpet. Muddy shoes can also make the carpets dirty. If you have some pet, it can shed hair and other impurities on carpet too. Now comes the decision whether the carpet needs dry cleaning or steam cleaning. It all depends on the level of dirt and your time preference. If the dirt is not too much and only few stains, then dry cleaning is preferred. It also takes less time to re-use the carpet after dry cleaning. In addition to the same high standard of cleanliness you get from steam cleaning, dry cleaning means your carpets will be completely dry within just a couple of hours of completing the process. You can walk on your carpet and even move furniture back onto it right away, minimizing disruption to your life. Dry cleaning also cuts down the chances of the underlay of your carpet getting warped by being water-logged.
