SPIN BONNET CLEANING (Immersion Method)
The immersion method of spin bonnet cleaning is also an interim method of carpet care. This system is designed to maintain a consistent appearance and to prolong time between costly rotary shampooing and/or extraction cleaning. Bonnet cleaning removes soil from the surface of the carpet. It is not a deep cleaning method such as rotary shampooing or extraction cleaning. The method is fast, introduces minimal moisture and dries rapidly.
