Steam carpet cleaning with Hot water extraction
Steam carpet cleaning, the most popular method, involves a detergent based solutions at the first instance. It is followed by application of automatic or manual cleaning tool over the carpet to rinse out all the dust and particulates.

Other Methods not so good are the following
Encapsulation has recently been found not as good of a method of its cleaning. This process of cleaning is used to create a crystalline of soil deposited on the carpet which can be quickly vacuumed. This is widely used for the maintenance of home and commercial carpets. Then there is a method in which bonnet is used to scrub the carpet with a mixture of club soda and cleaning product is sprayed over its surface.
