In a commercial environment we should consider carpet care as a four step approach which, if carried out systematically, should prolong the life of your carpets and contribute to a healthier indoor environment. These steps are;
Step 1: Controlling Soil
Step 2: Effective Vacuuming
Step 3: Immediate Spotting
Step 4: Periodic Cleaning
In this series of blogs I am going to deal with these processes beginning with 'contolling soil' and will outline the four most common methods of carpet cleaning used in the UK, much of the information is taken for documents commissioned by the Jangro Group. This is not meant to be a comprehensive guide to carpet cleaning, rather an over view of the pros and cons of each particular method . The objective being to help readers choose the most appropriate method of cleaning for their particular carpet and level of soilage.
