Deeply soiled carpets must be deeply cleaned!!! Ventilation
or otherwise moving air absorbent enough for drying is the
key to deep cleaning without risking mold. Educate your
customer and insist that they set the temperature of their
heating or air conditioning to furnish air suitable for drying
when carpets require deep cleaning.

. With sufficient ventilation, a carpet that takes a day or two to dry
is not over-wet or in any danger of molding. If the carpet was so dirty that it
needed to be washed down to the backing then let's "get'er done". If it
takes several scrub passes with the wand to supply the AGITATION to
dislodge dirt down deep and clean the full length of the carpet yarn then so
be it. Too many carpets are left with shaded traffic areas from un-removed
dirt because today's Carpet Cleaners have been indoctrinated into thinking
that everything must dry in two hours even if it means just pulling a wand
over the carpet one time and cleaning just the tips.
. Your customer is smart enough to know that while top cleaning
may look good, it leaves the toxins and soil up close to their babies faces.
They also know that deep cleaning of any heavy material will take more
drying time and they will appreciate being reminded of this. They will
choose deep cleaning evey time and they will choose you to do it because
you had the courage to be honest with them. The only catch is that once
you promise deep cleaning you had better have the equipment, techniques
and chemicals to back it up. Click here to read about waiver clauses.
. A lot of the blame for this goes to the machine sales where the
manufacturers brag about how fast their machines dry carpet. They are
wonderful machines but they ought to be bragging about how they offer
the power to deep clean and still recover all possible moisture. Instead
they often teach their carpet cleaning customers that it is okay to use just
one stroke with a wand and leave the deeper dirt behind. The schools are
not teaching deep cleaning either, no one is.
. Unless you are doing the hard work of multiple scrubbing wand
strokes or using a rotary scrubber, rotary "steam" heads or some other
adequate type of agitation then you are kidding yourself. It takes heat,
pressure, super sucking vacuum, great chemical and effective agitation to
deep clean dense carpet pile. If you sacrifice any one of these aspects
then you must attempt to use more of the others to compensate. If you
think that you can deep clean without agitation then try washing your dirty
hands under the hot faucet without rubbing them together or otherwise
. It is fine to take pride in leaving carpets only slightly damp but
let's be sure to get the deep dirt cleaned and flushed out because that is
what we are being paid for. If Mrs. Lady cleaned her hair with no more
moisture than some carpet cleaners clean her deep pile residential carpets
with, she would not wake up with very happy hair the next morning.
