What is Considered Soft Carpet?

A vacuum the is designed to deal mainly with high-pile or soft carpet, so what's the difference you may ask? basically a carpet is classed as high pile when the fibers are more loose and a lot taller. The pile length is how long the carpet yarn is and the pile height is from the surface to the base of the carpet. So a carpet that has shorter fibers and tighter knit/loops is called low pile carpet.

With this in mind if the type of carpet you buy is high pile which is more of an expensive, luxurious type including shag rug. They can start to cause problems with your vacuum beater bar and could end up damaging the carpet. Therefore more consideration needs to be taken when choosing one so for these types of carpets.

Soft Carpet Variations 

So let's explain in a bit more detail on carpets types that fall into the style of soft carpet. Moreover, what reason we would need a specific vacuum model to clean them. These carpets have names like long shag, high-pile, and plush. And they are much thicker than regular conventional carpets. That's not just in the construction, but also in how they are woven and manufactured. Let's take a look at a few examples.

Tigressa Carpet

This carpet has nylon fibers which are 75% finer than traditional high pile carpet, making it plush for a carpet. So with thousands of micro strands making up the base of this carpet. It is designed using resources that package be recycled and also green which is a bonus for keeping the planet clean.

Mohawk Smart Silk Carpet

The Mohawk is another high-end carpet using smart-strand design technology made with PTT polymer fibers. Which ensures a carpet, that's durable and stain free to a certain extent. Also eco-friendly, they recycle over 3 billion plastic bottles per year. They tested this smart-strand-silk  carpet with a Rhino called max to test its durability.

Why A Regular Vacuum Struggle With Soft Carpets?

The regular vacuums that we use today are not designed to handle the softer types of carpets we have in our homes. The density of the pile of the carpet will make the vacuum challenging to push due to having small wheels, and not very effective cleaning heads. Furthermore, it can cause fraying and cause the carpet yarns to go fuzzy. Therefore this type of vacuum can damage the carpet due to getting bogged down in the soft carpet pile.

Why the Soniclean Performs Better on This Type Of Carpet?

To clean a premium carpet, you are looking for 3 main cleaning features from your vacuum, to be able to lift the dust and dirt from you carpet. The Soniclean sfc-7000 upright vacuum has these features and more.

1. Adjustable height setting.
2. Rotating brushes
3. Sufficient air flow to lift the dust and dirt from you carpet

What makes this Soniclean vacuum good for high pile soft carpet, is its ability to not sink into the deepest of carpet due to having oversized rubber wheels. It like vacuuming with snowshoes on, this method allows the vacuum  to make easy work of the deepest of carpet. It can glide over the delicate carpet without a problem.

Pulses and Vibrates.

The vacuum system uses a type of sonic pulsing/vibrating motion. Which as you vacuum your carpet, it kind of drums and vibrates deep into the carpet. This method helps removes the dirt deep down and is very effective on carpets, this is very noticeable when you clean your thicker or soft carpet with this vacuum

Soniclean Direct Air Feature

What is Direct Air?
This Soniclean sfc 7000 has a Paramagnetic digital motor which is controlled and has two suction options/settings which you can use for either carpet or hardwood floors. These digital two speeds controls are for deep cleaning or regular cleaning mode. The Soniclean does not need you to manually adjust the height settings, as this is done automatically. Plus it has air intake at the front of the vacuum that can be adjusted to open/closed or in between depending on floor surface being cleaned. 

The use of direct air allows ease of use of the vacuum making it super lightweight and glides over your carpets. Ideal for users who suffer from back problems or have difficulties lifting or pushing heavy objects. It's also handy on areas of carpet that receive a lot of foot traffic. This new motor technology which uses 50% less energy than most full-size vacuums, can save money on electric and is greener for the environment.

Noise Level

Depending on which cleaning mode you vacuum with can affect how loud the Soniclean sfc 7000 is, I can say now in the deep cleaning mode the vacuum is quite loud. However, it is 50% quieter in normal cleaning mode, which is what you would be using most of the time. 

HEPA Filter And Fragrance Pods

This Soniclean sfc 7000 vacuum uses sealed HEPA filtration bags to keep debris stored nice and tightly within the cleaner. It also has the advanced jamming protection that can automatically shut down if it gets clogged up. You can also attach a Soniclean fragrance pods to your vacuum so that you can leave the scent of clean laundry everywhere you are vacuuming which is a cool idea.

HEPA Filter And Fragrance Pods

The capacity of the filter bags is around 7.5 lts, which can last with general use around 6-8 weeks. The downside is the HEPA filter does not come with this model which is disappointing. However, you can purchase these separately. Which if you suffered from any allergies this is a great option to have. You can also get fragrance Pods as an extra which are called Sonicfresh fragrance dispensers.

Attachments /Tools

This model does not come with attachments so when you want to clean the stairway carpets. It can be a bit cumbersome to maneuver around. Alternatively the option of using a cheaper shop vac portable model of vacuum as many upright vacuums don't work particularly well on stairs. So use whatever you used before. A suction-only tool is ideal.
