Differences between wet and dry carpet cleaning
Dry Cleaning is safer for most carpets — it will not shrink the carpet or cause water staining if applied unevenly. SEBO duo-P Cleaning Powder leaves no detergent residue to cause your carpet to resoil, and the carpet can be used immediately after cleaning.

 

Why use the SEBO dry cleaning system?

 Wet cleaning methods inject hot water and detergent into the carpet pile under pressure. A vacuum is then used to extract the liquid and dissolved soil. It is impossible to vacuum all of the dissolved soil from a wet carpet. Many machines only remove 50% of the dirty water. Carpets may resoil quickly and spots may reappear as the moisture wicks back up the carpet fibre. A wet carpet may take 8-36 hours to dry depending on humidity. That’s long enough for mould spores to grow. In fact, biological allergens thrive and multiply in moist or damp areas.

Extend the life of your carpets by not only vacuuming regularly, but also cleaning them regularly. Owning your own system is convenient and cost effective. Your carpets get cleaned when YOU want them cleaned and without having to let strangers into your home or office.

 SEBO offer a complete carpet care solution

The SEBO Vacuum Cleaners remove loose and dry matter. For soiling and stains, we provide the SEBO Duo system. Cleaning without using water, it is effective and avoids wet cleaning problems such as carpet shrinkage, running colours, adhesive damage, mold, smell and long ‘area out of use' periods due to lengthy drying times.

The Duo system comprises of a brushing machine, the Duo Applicator, and carpet cleaning powder, duo-P. The Duo Applicator features twin contra-rotating brushes which open up the carpet pile and work the duo-P carpet cleaning powder deep and evenly into the pile and around every fibre.

With the doppel adapter, two standard duo machines can be linked together to create a 700mm Applicator for cleaning double the area at the same time.

 How does it work?

The SEBO duo-P Carpet Cleaning Powder consists of thousands of micro-sponges which contain a safe and environmentally friendly solvent for greasy soiling, a neutral shampoo for non-greasy soiling and an anti-resoilant to delay resoiling. When worked into the carpet fibre, soil and stains are lifted out of the carpet by the duo-P powder. The Duo Applicator lifts the carpet pile ensuring all surfaces of the carpet fibre are cleaned; leaving your carpet revived and softer for longer. It also contains a citrus sent to leave your carpets smelling fresh and new, especially when you have pets.

After vacuuming with your SEBO Upright Vacuum Cleaner your carpet is clean, dry and ready for immediate use. An added advantage in using the duo-P Cleaning Powder on your carpet is its antibacterial properties and is proven to eradicate dust mites.

Allergy research

The GAF Allergy Research Centre in Germany found in a long term test that, six months after a single cleaning with duo-P, nine out of ten carpets remained free of dust mite allergens. This is a DRY carpet cleaning process.

The SEBO duo-P Cleaning Powder WILL NOT PROMOTE THE GROWTH OF MOLD AND FUNGI in your carpet and underlay that wet extraction or steam cleaning systems may cause.
