VLM Carpet Cleaning (Very low moisture)

Bramel Carpet Cleaning


Very low moisture carpet cleaning is a newer technology that utilizes a cleaning compound mixed with water and sprayed onto carpets. When the cleaning solution hits soiled carpets, the compounds activate to promote a deep clean with less water than the traditional hot water extraction method. We use machines designed to spread the cleansing agent, working it deep into the carpet. This technology allows dirt and grime to be encapsulated and removed by a brush or vacuum. Very low moisture cleaning leaves your carpet clean within 30 minutes to a couple of hours, so you can use the room again almost immediately. For families that don’t want to tiptoe around wet carpets for up to a day, this option provides minimal drying time. This is also a great solution for offices and schools unable to restrict use during drying time.

Understanding Low Moisture

Low moisture cleaning reproduces recurring stains that reappear due to wicking when soil at the base of the carpet moves up the fiber during the drying process. Excessive moisture used in steam cleaning can also cause rippling and de-lamination of your carpet.

In addition Carpets stay cleaner longer. The special polymer combats the build-up of soil after cleaning. Every routine vacuum after cleaning will continue to remove encapsulated soil.

Dry carpet cleaning systems are more accurately known as "very low moisture'' (VLM) systems, relying on dry compounds complemented by application cleaning solutions. Very low moisture (VLM) involves the use of specialized machines to clean carpets with recently developed chemical technologies that permit no-moisture or "very low moisture" (VLM) cleaning, resulting in carpet beautification, and removal or stains, dirt, grit, sand, and allergens. Some of the Benefits of VLM Quick dry time of (30 - 90) minutes this technique inhibits the growth of bacteria and mildew. With quick dry time low moisture is ideal for a facility that operates on a 24-hour schedule like: airports, hotels, hospitals, nursing homes, call centers and more. VLM is ideal for both large and small jobs. Low-Moisture cleaning is a green solution that is both cost effective and extremely efficient. Steam cleaning uses 20-60 gallons of water depending on the soil load. Very Low Moisture (VLM) uses 3-4 gallons depending on soil load.

VLM carpet cleaning is an eco-friendly solution to clean carpets. It typically uses 5% of the water needed during a hot water extraction method clean, which decreases drying time considerably. We also offer green carpet cleaning solutions for all-natural VLM cleanings.
