Routine vacuuming helps keep your carpeting clean by removing dust and dirt from the top layers; however, grime, germs, allergens, and other contaminants get trapped deep in the carpet where your vacuum can't reach. Over time these pollutants accumulate, and they can even make you and your family sick! That's why it's important to have your carpets deep cleaned annually. Carpet cleaning removes both surface dirt and deeply embedded dirt for a total clean-meaning fresh-looking, healthy carpets! But carpet cleaning isn't a job for amateurs: to get your carpets and rugs completely clean without causing damage requires knowledge, training, and specialized tools.
Leave your carpet cleaning jobs to the professionals and you'll get beautiful, expert results!
The concern with most do-it-yourself carpet cleanings is how clean you're really getting the carpet. Without specialized carpet cleaning equipment and products, homeowners simply aren't able to remove the grime trapped within their carpeting-and if you can't get it all the way clean, what's the point! Professional carpet cleaning uses truck-mounted hot water extraction to thoroughly cleanse your carpets. With a combination of pressurized hot water, eco-friendly cleaning agents, and rapid extraction, these machines can eliminate practically all of the contaminants embedded in your carpeting.
Carpet Cleaners Hawaii can even apply a stain protection treatment to keep your carpets pristine longer.
And, because the hot water extraction system applies the cleansers and then quickly extracts them out, your carpet is left clean and only a little damp. This is crucial because over saturating your carpeting dramatically increases drying time; if your carpet stays wet too long it can begin to mold and mildew, creating new health problems! While amateur carpet cleaning jobs can take days to dry, a professionally cleaned carpet is usually dry in under 12 hours.
The Truth About Carpet Cleaning Hawaii
This is the professional that you hire to clean your carpets. They may work for a carpet cleaning company or be self-employed. In order to work as a carpet cleaning technician they have to have a variety of skills. They have to know how different carpets react with different chemicals and knowledge of all the different kinds of carpet fibers. Their job duties would depend on which company they worked for or if they were self-employed.
Many of them work for small companies that clean residential homes. To do this work you have to have the technical skills for cleaning all types of carpets. You also have to have great customer service skills. Usually when you do residential carpet cleaning you will go to the home and work by yourself since it is a home. The company may require that you sell additional services if possible such as upholstery cleaning. It is important that you are physically fit because you will be hauling carpet cleaning equipment from the company van or truck to the home and then moving it around on the carpets. These machines could weigh as much as fifty pounds. You may also have to navigate stairs. Depending on the extent of the carpet-cleaning job, you may do three or more jobs a day. You will also be required to push and pull equipment, bend, stoop, stand, and lift and move furniture for at least eight hours a day, maybe longer if other jobs took longer than expected.
Some carpet cleaning technicians may also work in commercial spaces like offices, restaurants, or stores after they are closed. This may require then to work after midnight if cleaning carpets in restaurants. They may also work weekend and evening hours instead of during the daytime. These jobs may employ teams of two or more technicians because they may be many offices or stores to clean. When working for a small company a carpet cleaning technician may also answer phones, sell additional services, book appointments, and complete paperwork. They may have to take care of routine maintenance of their company vehicle.
To become a carpet cleaning technician most companies will require a high school diploma or its equivalent and on-the-job training and hands-on experience. There are classes they can take for specialized training in chemical handling, different types of carpet fibers, and customer sales and services. Some employers will send their technicians to the classes or they will have to take these classes on their own. Although a professional certificate is not required having one can lead to a higher rate of pay. In the United States, the certifying body is the Institute of Inspection, Cleaning, and Restoration Certification. To get this certification you have to take classes and pass an exam.
Carpet Cleaning Tips: How to Vacuum Carpets
A few years ago a new piece of equipment was introduced to the carpet cleaning industry that will change it forever. This technology will replace the standard carpet cleaning wand and all the back pains and soreness.
When a technician uses a standard carpet cleaning wand he has to push the wand back and forth to achieve a "scrubbing" motion. The "scrubbing" loosens tough dirt and oils from the carpet and the vacuum extracts it all out. Generally the technician moves the wand in only two directions, backward and forward. If the particular area requires more extraction the technician may turn perpendicular to his original position and extract from the opposite directions.
This requires physical strength and stamina and can wear a man out. The new technology is called rotary extraction because it has moving heads that spin in a circular motion. These rotating heads spin at over 200 RPMs. That is much more efficient than scrubbing back and forth over and over. It is virtually impossible for a technician to achieve 200 passes per minute with a standard wand.
And the best part, the rotary extraction method extracts from all directions. On the bottom of the rotating head are 3 vacuum inlets and 3 spray jets. The jets and vacuum inlets spray and extract from every direction while the head is spinning. Because the machine is extracting from all directions more water and soil is taken from the carpet, therefore dry times are significantly reduced and results are much better.
There are a few different machines that fall into this category. One machine has two smaller heads rotating in different directions for maximum extraction. This machine has to be pushed back and forth but has wheels so it glides across the floor. Another machine has just one rotating head but is significantly larger to make up the lost area. This machine "floats" on the carpet. The spinning head allows for it to move like a buffer. To control the machine you lift the handle up or down and it will float right or left, respectively. This machine does not need to be pushed.
The maintenance on these machines is pretty similar. The manufacturer recommends using your vacuum extraction hose to clean the bottom of the machine after every job. That's all there is to it. These machines are built very strong so you don't have to worry about breaking your investment.
This machine will significantly improve your quality of work and take major strain off of your body. Your clients will be impressed and your referral's will sky rocket. This machine will truly work wonders for your business.
