Some companies use a bonnet/tank and buffer system. According to Wikipedia, bonnet cleaning only cleans the top 1/8” of the carpet. “It distorts pile and grinds dirt deeper in carpet fiber, and also has an abrasive effect. (Source Wikipedia) Many “dry” carpet cleaning companies utilize this method. Encapsulation is another method used in cleaning carpet. This system is not very popular as dirt from stains are not removed during the cleaning. Here is the process: A normal vacuum is used to remove loose soil. Then a sticky spray is applied to your carpet called encapsulation. A rotary beater bar is run across your carpet. Thats it!. Where did your dirt go, no where, its just spread around the floor. You are then instructed to vacuum when the carpet is dry. Thats when the dirt is magically removed. Yes, people actually use this system to clean carpet.

Another trend to be aware of is that some companies claiming to be zero-residue cleaners utilize sodium hydroxide, which is one of the main ingredients in drain cleaner and is also extremely corrosive. Using sodium hydroxide as a final step in their carpet cleaning leaving the product on the carpet seems very irresponsible. Safe Solutions Carpet Cleaning will never resort to this way of cleaning.
