Keeping your carpets clean is just as important as maintaining your hard surface flooring. Over time, carpets will retain dust and dirt buildup causing it to look dirty even if you’ve just vacuumed. Regular carpet spotting helps maintain and prevents dirt, gum and coffee stains from setting in. Evening cleaning your carpets once year can make a huge difference in the appearance of your company.
[column]Hot Water Extraction
Hot water extraction is a technique which a wand is used to spray the carpet powerfully to bring the dirt up to the surface of the carpet and then quickly sucking up the water. Hot water is generally used in the process as it provides better results. Typically, a pre-rinse solution is lightly sprayed onto the carpet to aid in loosening the dirt and fibres prior to using the wand. Offices that allow pets to be brought in often request a deodorizor be used to remove the “pet smells”.
[column]Spin Bonnet Cleaning
A bonnet pad is attached to the bottom of a rotary machine: Detergent solution is sprayed onto the carpet then the rotary pad is used to agitate and remove the soil suspended in the solution from the carpet. Once one side of the pad gets soiled, the sides can be scrubbing strips on them. When both sides get soiled, the pad can be replaced and later cleaned. Spin Bonnet cleaning is often the preferred method in maintaining large commercial office buildings.
[column]Absorbent Dry Compound
A dry compound containing detergent and solvent is sprinkled onto the carpet and worked into the pile using machines. The soil particles get
encapsulated in the absorbent dry compound and are removed by vacuuming. Since this method does not use any “wet” process, there is no
danger of over-wetting or carpet browning.
