Professional carpet cleaners stopped using oil based soaps or “shampoo’s” decades ago. Some less experienced carpet cleaners still have a problem with rapid re-soiling. Why is this? Proper training and equipment eliminates this problem for those companies that understand how it works.
- State-of-the-art direct drive truck mounts are important to get the carpet dry enough after the job.
- If the carpet is left wet for days then the carpet will lose its ability to resist rapid re-soiling.
- Ph. balances must be equalized.
- Companies that rinse with water will leave the Ph. level of the carpet too high after cleaning. This can feel residue-free, but will attract soil none the less.
- Companies that grow too fast through advertising tend to have a turnover of only a few months. Proper training takes many months of assisting to an expert carpet cleaner to ensure that Ph. ratios get balanced.
Carpet cleaning is a science, but it is also hard work. Training is important as well as hiring the right workers and paying well enough to keep them motivated and in your employ. “Shampoo” may not be a factor in professional carpet cleaning anymore, but work ethic and training always will be.
