Deep Carpet Cleaning
Deep cleaning is typically prescribed annually or semi annually, depending on the traffic levels of the establishment. This is when you perform the most intensive cleaning to get the carpet as clean as possible. Normally more soil is present so you must perform multiple steps to get the carpet clean. For this scenario, we would use both Encapsulating Prespray followed by Dry Cleaning Compound. Ideally, a maintenance program of your design offers interim cleanings in between the deep cleaning procedures to help keep carpets looking their best year round.
Our system is certified by the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) and included on their list of approved deep cleaning systems. This is important to note simply because major carpet manufacturers require being certified by CRI for use on their carpets.
How It Works
Brush Out Dry Soil
- Prior to chemical application, dry soil removal can extract almost 75-80% of the overall soil in the carpet. This step also lifts the pile and prepares the fibers for chemical application.
- Attach Renovator catch trays to the front and rear of machine.
- Brush carpet in multiple directions throughout entire area to be cleaned without cleaning agents applied. For best results, brush using a north-south/east-west or zig zag pattern. Pay special attention to traffic lanes.
Pretreating with Encapsulating Prespray
- After dry soil removal, lightly mist Prespray solution onto all soiled areas. Spray just enough to moisten the fibers, do not soak.
- For traffic lanes and spots, apply a little heavier.
- Avoid applying to an area beyond 150-200sf. The area of cleaning must remain moist for best results
Dry Cleaning Compound Application
- Apply dry compound onto the pre sprayed carpet. Only apply to the areas previously pre sprayed.
- Use a handful of compound per 10sf of carpet.
- Apply a little more on heavily soiled areas such as traffic lanes and lighter in less soiled areas. No compound is needed on clean areas of the carpet, such as under furniture, corners and next to walls..
- Avoid applying to an area beyond 150-200sf. The compound must remain moist for best results.
Brush in Dry Compound
- Attach dust covers to front and rear of machine. This keeps the chemistry on the carpet. (No Renovators)
- Brush areas in multiple directions. Ideally a N-S/E-W or Zig Zag pattern for best results.
- Brush all areas to be cleaned.
Brush Out Dry Compound
- Remove dust covers and attach Renovator catch trays.
- Brush all areas again to remove the compound.
- As the Renovator catch trays become full you will notice reduced pick up of the compound. Empty trays as needed.
- For corners and crevices, use a vacuum or our corner brush attachment.
