The factor in a Structured Maintenance Plan. Use these items when organizing your regular carpet maintenance program. Choosing the right cleaning system and cleaning frequency to maintain your carpet.

A Structured Maintenance Plan

Carpet Treatment
Helps make vacuuming and cleaning carpet more efficient

Clean Equipment
Prevents machine repairs as well as inappropriate cleaning

The absolute objective of any maintenance program is to be protective and preventive rather than curative. A properly monitored program will be able to accomplish this.

The frequency of the procedures will be dependent on the amount of foot traffic entering the building. Additional circumstances to be considered are weather conditions and the amount or lack of landscaping around the building.

When establishing a new program, a certain amount of consideration should be given to the outside areas around the entrances to the building. Routine cleaning of outside stairwells and sidewalks will reduce the amount of soil from entering the building.

Interim Cleaning
Employ interim cleaning when carpet fibers become slightly soiled

Interim Cleaning can be explained as in between, or a speedy surface cleaning that will reduce the down time of a carpet. This cleaning is intended to keep a carpet looking cleaner for a longer period of time. It must be kept in mind that interim cleaning is not a replacement for major or restorative cleaning.

Pre-spraying
Use a prespray just before extracting to loosen traffic soils

Regular Spotting
Work with good spotting products for daily spotting.

Restorative Cleaning
Inhibits permanent fiber damage from embedded soils.

These cleaning methods will achieve a thorough cleaning that is essential to the long term life of a carpet. The frequency will be based upon the amount of soiling the area is subjected to and whether interim cleaning is being performed regularly.

Restorative Cleaning Choices:

Hot Water Extraction or Steam Carpet Cleaning (Most Widely Used)
Rotary Shampoo
Dual Process (Rotary Shampoo + Steam Cleaning)

Scheduled Vacuuming
80% of all soil tracked right into a facility is dry.

Walk Off Mats
Setting of mats at all entrances and service elevators.

The Cleaning of Soils Following 5 Simple Measures

Dry Soil Elimination
It can’t be overstated how necessary vacuuming is to extending the life of a carpet. It also enhances the overall appearance and will improve indoor air quality provided that the proper filtration is used.

Soil Suspension
This is probably the primary element for successful cleaning. This method involves separating the soil from the fiber so that it can be simply removed.

Soil Elimination
This is the elimination of the cleaning solution and also the suspended soils which should leave the fiber fresh, clean and residue free. The rinsing procedure can take place before the fiber has a chance to dry as in hot water extraction or the soils can be absorbed into pads used for boonet or spin pad cleaning. The soils can also be extracted following drying as in dry powders or shampoo, which must be vacuumed after they dry.

Grooming
Nylon and wool fibers must at all times be groomed after wet cleaning and just before drying, this will remove any wand marks or swirls from rotary machines. These fibers will take a water set which makes it impossible to remove these nap shadings.

Drying
This has to be done as quickly as possible in order to avoid resoiling, mildew and odors. The drying time can be reduced by using air movers and ventilation.

Dry Soil Elimination

Determining vacumming frequency needs:

Primary Areas – Areas of more foot traffic ought to be vacuumed day-to-day
Secondary Areas – Areas of less foot traffic ought to be vacuumed no less than weekly

Dry Soil Elimination Equipment

Beating Machine
Canister vacuum with attachments
Corn broom as well as handled dust pan
Mechanical hand sweeper
Pile lifter
Upright vacuum with a beater bar brush or brush

5 Major Reasons Why Dry Soil Elimination Is So Essential

Can improve indoor air quality providing proper filtration is used
Enhances the appearance
Cease resoiling
Lessen the wear and tear on the carpet fiber
Make the cleaning solutions more potent

Having all of the stress being put on indoor air quality, it is very important that we remove as much dry soil as possible. The vacuums utilized, whether they are uprights, canisters or pile lifters must have the appropriate filtration or the bulk of the soils will be redistributed back into the air. These redistributed soils will result in a decline to the indoor air quality.

Regular vacuuming prevents these dry soils from working down to the base of the fiber where they can cause a lot of damages. These deeply embedded soils can also bring about resoiling following wet cleaning.

Auckland Carpet Cleaning

We begin by removing all loose soil in the carpet by using a powerful dry vacuum system. We then lightly spray Auckland Carpet Cleaning exclusive cleaning solution onto the carpet. This solution is a mild cleaning solution which immediately penetrates each carpet fiber, and starts breaking up the dirt trapped within.

We then go over the carpet with a floor buffer which has specially designed absorbent pads on the bottom. The buffer weighs about 100 pounds, so as it spins, it gently flops the carpet fiber every way possible.

Next, we groom the carpet fibers all in one direction. The carpet will be totally dry in less than an hour after we finish the process. The carpet will be standing up like it did when it was new. It will look, feel, and smell clean and fresh.
