How Huck's Carpet Cleaning uses the WATER CLAW

Sub-Surface Spot/Water Lifter

The WATER CLAW Sub-Surface Spot/Water Lifter works on the same principle as our flood restoration tools, and is used in conjunction with our truck mount.

The basic rule of Sub-Surface spot removal is: any contaminants in carpet and/or pad that can be suspended in a liquid can be extracted out with the WATER CLAW.

Whatever amount of water is introduced to the carpet and pad after limited dwell time can be quickly drawn back out again with the WATER CLAW and typically dry out completely overnight. Be sure the area under the spot lifter is saturated through both carpet and pad. The tool can be picked up and repositioned, or slowly dragged across the saturated area.

The WATER CLAW Sub-Surface Spot Lifter literally flushes contaminants from carpet face fibers, backing and pad. Amazing results can be achieved on a variety of spotting problems when combined with Huck's Carpet Cleaning's professional technician's knowledge of spotting solutions, for example:

Soda pop: saturate with hot water then apply the CLAW.

Oils: saturate with a dilution of your favorite degreasing cleaner, WATER CLAW. Then saturate with a rinsing agent to remove cleaner residue and WATER CLAW the area again.

Soap residue: saturate with a mixture of cold water and defoamer, then WATER CLAW it.

Pet urine: saturate with your favorite urine liquefier. Allow a small amount of dwell time, followed by the Claw. (Repeat this step as needed.) Then saturate with your favorite urine deodorizer for your final flush and Clawing. (Some single chemicals perform well for both purposes).

Wicking problems: wicking problems of all kinds can be flushed out with the proper spotting dilutions or even straight water, as determined by Huck's Carpet Cleaning's technician. 

 

 

Watch the video for a live demonstration.  This carpet was severely damaged by pet urine odor and pet stains.  Watch as the extractor extracts the odor from the carpet, and then cleans the stains. 

Please be advised that we do charge extra for the water claw service.  Whether Huck's Carpet Cleaning uses the water claw will be up to the customer, and depending on the extent of the damage.
