“Green” Cleaning Process for Carpets
Thanks for your interest in Esmerio’s Master Carpet Care Inc. safe carpet cleaning process. I hope this special report helps you learn more about our program for the safe carpet cleaning process we have used to get the carpets of hundreds of satisfied clients in the area the cleanest they’ve ever seen!
Green cleaning means we use very small amounts of environmen- tally safe cleaning solutions. In fact our carpet cleaning solutions are gentler than your laundry detergent and we use LESS of our products to clean all the carpets in your entire home than the laun- dry soap you use to clean just one load of clothes!
Because we remove 93% or more of all the water used in the cleaning process, the amount of any cleaning solution left behind is so marginal that for practical purposes is does not exist.
For example. We use about one cup of solution concentrate to clean 1500 sq. feet of carpet with 120 gallons of water. 93% of that water is extracted . That means 8.4 gallons is left to evaporate out of the entire area (about 3⁄4 oz/sq. ft).
The cleaning solution residue is about 1/1,200 of an ounce per sq. ft. This is such a small amount it’s imperceptible.
You can also have a clear water rinse using absolutely no cleaning solutions...it means that the results may not be as obvious, but our hot water extraction unit can achieve very good results with NO cleaning solutions at all. In either case...
I guarantee you’ll be AMAZED when you see the results for yourself.”
CARPET CLEANING JARGON... WHAT IS HIGH VOLUME EXTRACTION? The term "High-Volume Extrac- tion" refers to a unique carpet cleaning process that utilizes both a high flow of water volume, heat, and air volume (vacuum) to remove a large volume of soil without leaving any detergent residue.
A BREAKTHROUGH This represents a breakthrough in carpet cleaning technology. Esmerio’s Master Carpet Care Inc. integrates this new “High Volume” extraction technology into every carpet cleaning jobs.
HOW IT WORKS: High Volume Extraction utilizes more water than other professional systems to ruly deep clean to the base of the carpet fiber. We then quickly recover 94% of the dirty water with a super- powerful vacuum system, leaving the carpet residue free and super-clean!MORE WATER = BETTER! Water flow is THE most critical factor in removing suspended soil from the carpet.
Think about going into the shower and sudsing up your hair with a rich lather of shampoo. Now imag- ine rinsing it with a quart of water.
It’s tough to get all the shampoo out, right? Now pour 5 gallons over your head! Which one is going to leave your hair cleaner? Of course rinsing with 5 gallons!
It’s the same idea with your carpets. The more water that’s used to rinse under controlled conditions, the cleaner your carpets will be!
The High-Volume Extraction Difference
High Volume Extraction removes more soil than other systems because it uses super-heated water flowing quickly under intense pressure to flush away dirt. Then a powerful vacuum system recovers 94% of the water. Many commercial cleaning machines only recover 40-50%; this leaves your carpets too wet or they just spread the dirt around.
Here are some interesting Facts
It is surprising that carpet cleaning often is poorly planned and assigned to inexperienced individuals. Janitors or weekend carpet cleaners usually do NOT have any formal training or industry certifications to clean your carpets. At Esmerio’s Master Carpet Care Inc. our technicians strive to further their education by attending industry certification schools. You would not allow a weekend dentist with mail order credentials work on your teeth, right? Same thing.
Too often purchasers of carpet cleaning equipment and chemicals buy the lowest priced products. This means that your carpets could be subjected to rapid resoiling, color changes, and fiber deterioration or delamination. This leads to premature wear, damage, and replace- ment.
Another important factor is your home’s Indoor air Quality. The use of the best available cleaning solutions and equipment, along with trained, knowledgeable technicians is essential to doing a satisfactory job.
STEPS TO A CLEAN, HEALTHY CARPET
STEP 1: Prevacuuming: Carpet is really a gigantic air filtration system. It traps the soils tracked in by humans and pets, as well as minute particles of dust, mold spores, small insects and other micro- scopic matter that circulate through the air.
As a result, 70% to 80% of soil in carpet is com- prised of particulate matter, such as dust, sand, carbon, human and animal hair, and flakes of skin.
These soils are not dissolved by water or carpet clean- ing chemicals, and are best removed through dry vacuuming.
IF dry soils are not removed prior to wet cleaning, they will hamper the effectiveness of the cleaning process. Therefore, vacuuming is an important first step in the carpet cleaning process.
Vacuuming frequently between cleanings is also the best way to lengthen carpet life and maintain high levels of appearance.
Dust mites are an annoyance and health hazard in most homes.
SPECIAL SOLUTIONS FOR CHEMICALLY SENSITIVE If you have known chemical allergies please let us know. We have a special group of products that are hypoallergenic. We can also clean with clear water to remove soil.
STEP 2: Removal of spots
Some spots will come out during the extraction cleaning process, but often reappear, within a few hours to a few days, as the result of "wicking" (water and dirt rising to the surface) that occurs during the drying process. This is because the spot was not properly removed. We remove spots properly after vacuuming and before cleaning. It is a good idea to remove spots as soon as they appear, even before the area is scheduled for cleaning. The sooner spots are removed, the easier they are to remove and the less likely they are to cause permanent appearance problems.
WHAT ABOUT PET STAINS? Some carpets are damaged severely from pet urine stains. These stains are usually removable! We offer a special process for effective pet stain removal – it’s very thorough and we have a free report on the entire process! Please call to request our pet stain & odor removal report for more information.
STEP 3: Prespray Solution (Pre-conditioning your carpet) Pre- sprays loosen and suspend the greasy and oily soils that adhere to your carpet fibers. These are the soils that vacuuming does not re- move. Such soils exist everywhere, but are more noticeable, due to their concentration, in high traffic areas, such as just inside door- ways, in hallways, in front of furniture, etc. These soils often are tracked in from asphalt, automotive oil in driveways and parking lots. In addition, many food and beverage spills fall in this category.
STEP 4: MECHANICAL AGITATION For carpet needing restorative cleaning; a special rotary jet extraction machine is used to loosen deeply embedded soils (restorative cleaning). This additional agitation that offers spectacular results!
The jet extraction machine has 5 vacuum slots and 5 spray jets (see left) that spin, spray, and vacuum simultaneously on the carpet, producing tremendous deep-cleaning action.
STEP 5: EXTRACTION: This is the process of spraying hot water into the carpet then extracting the dirty water, leaving your carpet fresh and clean. Extraction is where the "rubber meets the road" (or, in this case, where the water meets the carpet).
The more soil and chemical residue left in the carpet the faster the carpet will re-soil.
STEP 6: Drying: There are a number of reasons why it's desirable for carpet to dry quickly. When carpet takes too long to dry in a warm and humid environment, the possibility of mold and mildew growth becomes a concern.
Moisture in the carpet: The less moisture left in the carpet, the more quickly it will dry. Unfortu- nately, most extractor machines do not have vacuum systems that are strong or efficient enough to promote quick drying. This is primarily due to the distance the air and water must travel from the car- pet to the recovery tank.
STEP 7: GROOMING - If required, this is the final step, which is to brush-groom your carpet’s pile to enhance drying, to work the protector into the fiber, and to remove machine marks.
