Orange County Carpet Cleaning
FUNDAMENTALS OF CLEANING
When considering the wide variety of objects that are cleaned in our environment on a daily basis, it is interesting to note that the fundamentals of cleaning those objects almost always stay the same.
Ask any homemaker the process by which they wash the clothes, the dishes or even their hair. They will tell you that they first WASH, then RINSE, and then DRY. They may not think of it but many times as a first step they will remove the loose and large soil such as caked on mud on blue jeans or scraping leftover food on plates before washing. As you may have guessed, the same process for cleaning everyday objects is also followed in the carpet cleaning fundamentals.
DRY SOIL REMOVAL
This process relates to removing the caked on mud in clothes or scraping the plates before washing. In carpet a high degree of the soil content is actually in dry particulate soil which can be removed by vacuuming. Virtually all the experts as well as anybody involved in cleaning realize that loose soil is easier to remove dry than wet. Once loose dirt has been turned to mud, the cleaning process is more difficult.
While dry soil removal is always preferred as the first step in any cleaning process, the fact is; most professional carpet cleaners do not pre-vacuum. Thousand of professional carpet cleaners are obtaining good results without taking this extra step. Reason: Either extra time, temperature, agitation, or chemical is used to overcome the extra soil left in the carpet by not removing it when it is dry.
The next function of cleaning relates to the wash cycle. The purpose is to remove soul from the fiber and hold it in suspension until it can be removed. The four areas involved in soil suspension are critical in the cleaning process. They are; Chemical Action, Agitation, Heat and Time.
Without the help of chemicals we would be doing little more than rinsing small amounts of the overall soil out of the carpet. Water is not a good cleaner by itself. Chemicals provide the detergents and other additives to cause the wetting, sequestering and emulsification necessary for complete soil removal.
The first step in applying chemical to the carpet is called the preconditioning step. No matter what the method of cleaning, a good traffic lane cleaner or preconditioning chemical will improve you overall ability to do a professional cleaning job. The preconditioning step allows time for the chemical to dwell on the carpet. The chemical should consist of ingredients that are aggressive and designed to break up the oxidized oils and resins that are formed and are binding the other soils to the carpet. This important step should not be skipped.
Consider the agitation clothes receive in a washing machine. The agitator in the center of the machine will continually work the clothes against themselves and through the water for periods up to 20 minutes long. Carpet, which is typically dirtier than clothes, does not give us the opportunity for that kind of agitation. The different type of agitation available are; Wand Agitation, Jet Agitation and Brush/Machine Agitation.
Jet agitation is sometimes over-rated. While the water pressure does give some degree of force, that force is more effective at spreading and penetrating the chemical than actually blasting dirt off fibers.
The movement of the cleaning tool over the carpet, and the fluttering of the fibers in the vacuum port, can give significant aid with the agitation process. The wand and vacuum also cause carpet tufts to work against each other.
One method of agitation that is often overlooked and yet is very quick and effective is the grooming brush agitation. After the preconditioning spray is applied, a groomer or pile brush is used to work the chemical into the carpet, agitate the carpet and loosen tangled and crushed fibers. This step is especially helpful in heavy traffic areas in that it aids in soil suspension. The machine agitation can be accomplished with a rotary scrubber using a special nylon brush, carpet bonnet, or other rotating type brush machine.
Carpet cleaners will often view this fundamental from different perspectives. If your equipment is capable of high temperature output, then you have used it, and would probably hate to be without it. Carpet cleaners that draw water from a household source or their equipment only produces only moderate heat, therefore donít know what they are missing and may not see the value in high temperature water.
Once the extraction solution reaches 118 degrees Fahrenheit, the chemical activity is doubled for each progressive 18 degree increase. This does not mean you are cleaning twice as well, or removing twice the soil. It does, however, make your cleaning chemical twice as effective at emulsification and suspension of the soils.
We have seen dozens of cases where an increase in chemical, agitation and time, could not perform as well as a 20-degree increase in solution temperature.
When should you worry about too much heat? For the most part, you donít have to worry. You need only be aware of a few precautions regarding delicate fibers/cut pile carpets.
Solution leaving a truck mounted carpet cleaning machine at 240 degrees will face considerable loss in temperature as it passes through the system. It must first pass through the pressure line, then the valve, the wand hose, the manifold, and finally the jets. The greatest loss is then experienced as the heated solution passes through the air and contacts the cold carpet. The temperature of the solution as it contacts the carpet will run 160 to 180 degrees. Coming into contact into contact with cold carpet, it will seldom raise the temperature of the fiber above 150 degrees.
No matter how powerful the machine, how great the chemical, you cannot do a complete job without allowing your chemical to dwell on carpet.
Sugars and starches take time to re-dissolve, but perhaps the greater problem is the oxidized and dried oils. These oils, when left for years at a time, will turn to a binding resin that holds many of the other carpet soils. A good quality pre-spray is designed to break these oily residues but only when given the proper amount of time. All soils are better removed when the chemical is allowed to dwell for 10 to 15 minutes. One thing to keep in mind when applying pre-spray, do not let it dry before you reach the extraction step. The soils and oil will begin to re-attach themselves to the fiber.
