ABOUT CARPET CLEANING
EVERYBODY HAS THEIR OWN WAY OF CARPET CLEANING. BEING IN THE BUSINESS FOR OVER 20 YEARS I HAVE SEEN ALMOST EVERY CONCEIVABLE WAY THERE IS TO CLEAN A CARPET. SOME WAYS YOU WOULDN'T BELIEVE, SOME WAYS ARE BETTER THAN OTHERS. BELOW ARE THE THREE MAIN WAYS OF CLEANING CARPETS.

EXTRACTION: AN CARPET EXTRACTOR USES A DETERGENT SOLUTION THAT IS FORCED INTO THE CARPET BY A PUMP THEN THE SOLUTION IS SUCKED OUT OF THE CARPET WITH HIGH POWER VAC MOTORS. PUMPS RANGE IN POWER. VAC MOTORS RANGE FROM 135 CFM TO OVER 200 CFM. HEATERS CAN BE ADDED TO THE MACHINES EITHER INTERNALLY OR EXTERNALLY. HEATED WATER TENDS TO BREAK UP GREASY DIRT FASTER. GOOD CHEMICALS, SEE CARPET CLEANING CHEMICALS FOR INFORMATION, WILL DO THE WORK FOR YOU. EXTRACTION LEAVES THE CARPET WETTER THAN OTHER SYSTEMS, BUT IT CLEANS DEEPER.

SELF CONTAINED CARPET EXTRACTION MACHINE: SAME PRINCIPLE AS A EXTRACTOR BUT HAS A BUILT IN BRUSH THAT SCRUBS THE CARPET BETWEEN PUTTING THE SOLUTION DOWN AND VACUUMING IT UP. THIS SYSTEM IS GREAT FOR LARGE COMMERCIAL AREAS.

EXTRACTION RESTORATION: THE PROPER WAY OF DEEP CLEANING A CARPET. THIS IS A TWO STEP PROGRAM DESIGNED TO DEEP CLEAN THE CARPET.  1) PRESPRAY  CARPET WITH A GOOD PRESPRAY OR USE A NON-RESIDUE SHAMPOO IN A SHAMPOO TANK.    AGITATE CARPET WITH A ROTARY BUFFER WITH A CARPET BRUSH.  THIS LOOSENS UP THE DIRT THAT IS ON THE TOP AND DEEP IN THE CARPET.  LET THE CHEMICAL SIT FOR A FEW MINUTES TO ACTUALLY BREAK UP THE DIRT AFTER YOU SCRUB.  2) EXTRACT THE CARPET WITH A GOOD EXTRACTION CLEANER (LIKE THE CHEMSPEC 90) OR USE A RINSING AGENT (LIKE TEXTILE RINSE FROM CHEMSPEC OR RINSE OUT FROM CELLO).  THE RINSING AID WILL FLUSH OUT ALL CHEMICALS AND DIRT FROM STEP 1 AND FROM PREVIOUS CLEANINGS.

BONNET CLEANING: BONNETS ARE MADE OF SYNTHETIC, NATURAL OR A COMBINATION OF BOTH MATERIALS. BONNETS ARE ROUND PADS THAT GO UNDER STANDARD SPEED FLOOR BUFFERS. THE BONNETS USE FRICTION TO PULL DIRT FROM THE TOP OF THE CARPET FIBERS. THIS IS A GOOD SYSTEM WHEN CLEANING A CARPET FREQUENTLY, WHEN THE CARPET NEEDS TO BE DRY SHORTLY AFTER CLEANING OR WHEN A BROWNING PROBLEM OCCURS. HOWEVER, THIS IS NOT A DEEP CLEANING METHOD. IT IS RECOMMENDED THAT THE CARPET BE SPRAYED WITH THE DETERGENT THEN BUFFED WITH A DRY BONNET, WHEN THE BONNET GETS DIRTY FLIP IT OVER OR USE ANOTHER ONE.

ROTARY BRUSH OR DRY FOAM: USES A FOAMING SHAMPOO THAT MAY DRY TO A LIGHT POWDER OR CRYSTAL. THE SHAMPOO IS APPLIED WITH A BRUSH AND A STANDARD SPEED FLOOR MACHINE, THE BRUSH GENERATES FOAM AS IT SPINS OR A SPECIALIZED MACHINE THAT GENERATES FOAM BEFORE GETTING AGITATED WITH A BRUSH. THIS SYSTEM IS LIKELY TO LEAVE THE CARPET WITH A STICKY RESIDUE IF NOT USED PROPERLY.

NOTE: ALWAYS VACUUM CARPET THOROUGHLY BEFORE CLEANING, IT WILL MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND SAVE YOUR EXTRACTOR.

ABOUT COMMERCIAL FLOOR CARE

YOU SPENT A LOT OF MONEY GETTING YOUR FLOOR "WAXED" AND NOW YOU NEED TO MAINTAIN IT OR IT WILL START LOOKING LIKE YOU NEVER DID ANYTHING TO IT.  "WAXED" IS THE WRONG WORD SINCE VERY SELDOM DO WE USE WAX ON COMMERCIAL TILE FLOORS ANYMORE.  WE USE A POLYMER COATING THAT WE CALL "FLOOR FINISH". I WON'T GET INTO FLOOR FINISHING AND STRIPPING AT THIS TIME BUT YOU CAN REQUEST OUR CATALOGUE AND IT DOES COVER FLOOR FINISHING AND STRIPPING. 

FLOOR FINISH CLEANING: ALWAYS SWEEP OR DUST MOP THE FLOOR BEFORE CLEANING.  ALWAYS USE A NEUTRAL CLEANER TO CLEAN FLOOR FINISH.  IF IT DOESN'T SAY NEUTRAL THAN IT ISN'T.  DON'T USE MR CLEAN, SIMPLE GREEN, TOP JOB, SPIC AND SPAN AND OTHERS UNLESS THEY SAY NEUTRAL ON THE BOX.   A NON-NEUTRAL CLEANER MAY DULL AND EVEN STRIP THE FLOOR FINISH FROM THE FLOOR.   YOU NEED A MOP BUCKET WITH RINGER, A MOP HANDLE AND MOP HEAD.  IF YOU HAPPEN TO USE THE MOP BUCKET FOR STRIPPING YOU MUST THOROUGHLY CLEAN THE BUCKET OF ALL STRIPPER RESIDUE.  DO NOT USE A MOP THAT WAS USED FOR STRIPPING TO CLEAN A FLOOR.    IF YOU HAVE A LARGE AREA SUCH AS A SUPERMARKET TO CLEAN YOU SHOULD USE A AUTO SCRUBBER WHICH WILL MAKE YOU CLEANING A LOT EASIER.  

BUFFING  & RESTORING: ALWAYS CLEAN THE FLOOR BEFORE BUFFING OR BURNISHING THE FLOOR.  SPRAY BUFFING CONSISTS OF A SPRAY BUFF CHEMICAL, A FLOOR BUFFER OF 175 RPM OR 300 RPM AND A FLOOR PAD MADE FOR BUFFING.  TO SPRAY BUFF YOUR LIGHTLY MIST THE SPRAY BUFF IN FRONT OF THE BUFFER AND YOU BUFF THAT AREA UNTIL THE SPRAY BUFF IS WORKED INTO THE FLOOR AND A SHINE APPEARS.   MOP ON RESTORING USES A SIMILAR CHEMICAL TO THE BUFFING CHEMICAL BUT IT IS APPLIED BY MIXING THE SOLUTION IN A BUCKET WITH WATER AND MOPPING THE SOLUTION ONTO THE FLOOR.   YOU LET THE FLOOR DRY AND USE A HIGH SPEED BURNISHER OF 1500 RPM OR MORE WITH A BURNISHING PAD TO SHINE THE FLOOR.  THEIR IS ALSO PASTES THAT CAN BE USED WITH BURNISHERS THAT YOU PLACE A RIBBON OF THE CHEMICALS IN FRONT OF A BURNISHER AND WALK THE BURNISHER UP AND DOWN THE AREA THAT NEEDS TO BE SHINED.

WHAT DO CUSTOMERS SAY ABOUT US: 

Just want to thank you all. I ordered a Stinger a few months ago, and it
is wonderful.  But my thanks is to the gentleman I ordered it from.  He
took the time to ask me what I was using the machine for and talked me
out of the machine I wanted, which would have been more money, so I am
very impressed with your company.  You see he was right and I would have
been stuck with a machine that was not right for me. This is good
business and you now have a customer for life.  Thanks  L. J.  Florida

Neil, everything is going great. We are wrapping up our first year in
the truck mounted carpet cleaning business, in a large part because of you and the
guys in your facility. Both of us spread your good name in the N. East as
much as possible. I can't say enough about the way we were welcomed and the
service we received while in your home city. Once again thank you and we will
keep in touch. T& Pl Whitesboro, NY

I appreciated your patience with me as a newcomer - most important you did not push me to buy a higher price model that I didn't need -  you could of sold me a higher price model and taken advantage of my ignorance .  You didn't and that's a rare thing these days.  As a result I hope to be a long term loyal customer .  

Many Thanks  P. L. Maine
