It is inevitable, especially in high-traffic areas, that residential and commercial carpets and sofas will be impacted by dirt, spills, stubborn stains and wearing that eventually needs cleaning.
If you are looking for carpet cleaning products for your cleaning business the options can seem vast and a costly investment. The use of professional carpet cleaning chemicals is hard to avoid if you want to achieve a thorough deep-down clean. Choosing the right range of products for carpet cleaning requires consideration and research.
Many professional carpet cleaners find themselves only using a hand full of products regularly and often have garages or storage facilities full of unused carpet cleaning chemicals. It can be very confusing when purchasing carpet cleaning products as many manufactures often have a large range of cleaning chemicals for cleaning the same surface, for example they may have 10 specialist cleaning products just to clean upholstery and sofa fabrics.
Picking the correct cleaning solutions is actually a lot easier than you’re led to believe. The most common general soil type, which we as professionals are cleaning daily is acidic soil and therefore only needs a good quality alkali cleaner. Most professionals would only be using a couple of good quality alkali cleaning products varying in pH, such as Advanced Cleaner or Fast Lane to remove the acidic soil on the majority of their cleans. Most of the other products professional carpet cleaners will use tend to be specialist spotters to deal with staining and soil that is not predominately general acidic soil.
Next, we have organic staining such has food & drink spills. Organic staining from plant or animal is organic, carbon or protein-based a good quality alkali enzymatic solution in most cases would be the best choice such as Bio-Trax.
Lastly alkaline staining, alkaline staining isn’t as common as acidic stains and soils, however as a professional carpet cleaner you will inevitably come across this type of stain and more than likely you will require a specialist carpet and upholstery spot and stain remover. Rust for example, Rust is alkaline due to its mineral base and therefore needs to be removed with an acidic solution such as Iron, Mould & Rust remover. Two-part stains where Dyes have set may require a combination of two spot and stain cleaners, for e.g. an enzyme spot and stain remover followed by a solvent spot and stain remover such as wetsolve. Some synthetic stains will require a specialist solvent-based carpet spotter, for e.g. ink, bearing grease etc.
If it’s none of the above it may be damaged! If a stain has been chemically bonded to the carpet or fabric you will no longer be able to remove it with a specialist carpet of fabric spotter. However, in this scenario you may be able to use a oxidising agent. These substances don’t remove the staining substance itself; instead, they bombard the part of a molecule called a chromophore, which is responsible for colour, with oxygen molecules. In short, they bleach out the chromophores that are responsible for the dye sites thus hiding the stain. CBT will give such results
