From one time services to complete carpet care programs, Janitorial Management Incorporated is capable of maintaining your work environment at a high appearance level. JMI uses a variety of professional carpet cleaning methods depending on the individual needs of your facility.
Carpet Care Methods:
- Pile Lifting
- Hot Water Extraction or “Steam” Cleaning
- Combination of Hot Water Extraction and Shampoo
- Bonnet Cleaning
- Absorbent Dy Compound
Hot Water Extraction or “Steam” Cleaning:
Portable equipment is used to spray heated detergent solution into the carpet pile at a high pressure and immediately extracted along with the suspended soil particles.
The machine may employ rotary brushes or another agitating device to work the solution into the pile and loosen soil
Factors that affect the results of this method are:
- Operator skill
- Solution temperature
- Spray pressure
- Vacuum power
- Pre-spray: spraying solution apply time before extracting
In this method, detergent solution is released onto the carpet through openings in a rotary brush, whose rotary action converts the solution into foam that works it into the carpet. At times, chemicals may be added to the detergent solution to reduce odors, retard soiling, brighten colors and/or speed drying.
Combination of Hot Water Extraction and Shampoo:
As the name implies, this method uses the Hot Water Extraction method and Shampoo. This method is especially effective for cleaning highly soiled carpetswith heavy oil/soil build-up.
The process has two steps:
- Shampoo using rotary brush to loosen soil
- Hot Water Extraction using water rather than detergent solution to remove shampoo
This is another method similar to “shampoo”. Bonnet cleaning employs an absorbent pad “bonnet” attached to the bottom of a rotary machine.
Detergent solution is sprayed onto the carpet and the rotary pad is used to agitate and remove the soil suspended in the solution from the carpet.
Once one side of the pad gets soiled, the sides can be reversed. And when both sides get soiled, the pad can be replaced and later cleaned.
Absorbent Dry Compound:
A dry compound containing detergent/solvent is sprinkled onto the carpet and worked into the pile using machines.
The soil particles get encapsulated in the absorbent dry compound and are removed by vacuuming.
Since this method does not use any “wet” process, there is no danger of over wetting.
