The dry foam procedure is mostly rather than dry as

the name infers, although the content of moisture

is so low that it can actually be referred to as dry

foam (90% air - 10% liquid).  The dry foam machine

is equipped with a pressure tank, which you will

pour a solution of water and shampoo into.


A compressor will work to convert the solution into

foam which is then dispensed all over the carpet

using a revolving cylindrical brush.  The brush will

work to comb the foam through the piles of the

carpet so that each individual fiber of the carpet

is cleaned.  


To achieve success, you must make sure that the

bubbles being produced are of uniformed size so the

foam can complete the cleaning process before it

is dispersed.  Once it has dried, the carpet is

then thoroughly vacuumed to remove the dried crystals

of dirt that have been left behind.  


Below, are the steps to the dry foam procedure:

1.  First of all, vacuum the carpet and

remove all the stains that you possibly can.


2.  Mix the dry foam solution according to

the directions of the manufacturer.


3.  Shampoo the carpet then once it has dried,

vacuum the carpet.


4.  Depending on the type of carpet you

have, groom the pile to speed the drying process.


5.  Complete the work by using a furniture

leg pad or block to eliminate furniture stains

or rust.




The process of dry foam cleaning is capable of

covering a lot of area in a very short amount of

time.  There isn't really any danger involved in

saturating the carpet simply because the moisture

content is low.  This will also help you to

minimize the problems that are commonly associated

with over wetting.




The dry foam method is capable of removing average

levels of soil.  There is however a possibility of

excessive residue and soil build up if the machine

you are using has inadequate extraction capabilities.


Dry foam is the ideal method of choice if you have

older carpet if you want to get your carpet as clean

as possible.  You can rent a machine at your local

department or carpet store if you don't think you'll

use it enough to buy it.  They don't cost that

much to rent, which is great for those who just

want to give it a shot and see what happens.


Dry foam carpet cleaning isn't that hard to do,

as you'll be fine even if you have no experience

with these types of machines.  The above information

will help you greatly, and if you follow it, you

shouldn't have any problems.  Dry foam can make a

carpet look spectacular, as long as you follow

the manufacturers directions on mixing the dry

foam solution.  Once you've finished cleaning your

carpet with dry foam, you'll probably find yourself

falling in love with the results.
