Do you sometimes get the feeling that the carpet or upholstery cleaner is “leaving something out”?
Have you ever had a carpet cleaner race through your cleaning job, leaving you to wonder how he could have possibly gotten everything out?
It “looks” clean, but what will re-surface in the near future?
There are actually 7 important steps to cleaning any textile, whether it is carpet or upholstery. Many cleaners don’t use these steps, therefore leaving a soaking wet mess behind.
Following these 7 important steps insure that you get maximum soil and maximum spot removal without over-wetting or harming your carpet and upholstery
Step 1: Pre-Conditioning Traffic Areas
In this step, a solution is applied that loosens the soil and spots for more effective removal.
Step 2: Pre-Treat Spots
Some spots require special solutions and special care for complete removal and to avoid “setting” the stain.
Step 3: Pre-Grooming
The carpet or upholstery pile is now gently massaged to further loosen the soils so that aggressive, harmful cleaning is not needed.
Step 4: Extraction
Now that the soil has been properly “suspended”, it can be extracted without over-wetting or leaving a sticky residue behind.
Step 5: Specialty Spotting
Stubborn stains sometimes require specialty stain removal processes. Because many cleaners do not train themselves, they do not know about these processes. Those who do sometimes gouge customers to use these processes because they offer a low price they intend not to keep.
Step 6: Post Grooming
The pile of the carpet or upholstery should then be “finished” so that it dries and cures in the proper direction.
Step 7: Post Inspection
A thorough walk through should be done to insure that you are completely satisfied with your cleaning job.
