Why Do Professional Carpet Cleaners Leave a Triangle Pattern in the Carpet?
If you’ve ever had your carpets professionally cleaned, you may be wondering why (or how) they get those neat little triangles in the carpet during their cleaning cycle. While it may seem like they are just doing that for fun, there is actually a point to making those little triangles – and it’s in the way that the steam cleaning technique works best.
Carpet actually gets cleaner when you are pulling the steam cleaner towards you, not pushing it away, so professional carpet cleaners will use an “M” shape as they clean to make sure that more carpet fibers are cleaned with each stroke. As they push the steam cleaner forward, they will then drag is backward along the same area to clean the carpet fibers. Next, they push the head of the steam cleaner to the next section and pull it backwards to clean. These overlapping “M” patterns are what create the fun triangles in the carpeting.
What’s important to remember about this is that your carpet fibers are actually receiving two passes with the steam cleaner. The first one pushes all of the dirt and debris to the top of the carpet fibers, and the pulling backwards motion collects these particles and removes them from the carpet. The result is cleaner carpet throughout your home or office, but with the triangle patterns left as a unique marker of this process.
These patterns are often most noticeable with steam cleaning, but you can also try this technique with routine vacuuming. You may find that you get better results from your next routine carpet cleaning!
