Ditto, except I use Prochems Axiom extraction detergent to rinse. Less foamy. I rarely clean in the home unless it's synthetic over a floor not harmed by moisture. We do a much thorough cleaning in the shop.We try not to clean any rugs on location but there were always some that didn't want the rug removed from their home. Even knowing that the cleaning quality had limitations.
Precondition with Prochem Fine Fabric Prespray
Agitate with groomer
Rinse with either All Fiber Rinse or Fine Fabric Detergent using a Zipper to flush and dry.
6 mil tucked around edges, airmover left while cleaning other rooms. Airmover left if included in the charge or multiple rugs cleaned.
Confessing to cleaning rugs in the home in a cleaning forum invites more than a little criticism.So only 4 of you clean rugs in the home, amazing
That's one of the problems with in home cleaning, is the fringes. They are usually cotton and will brown with higher ph and over wetting. Good to see you are drying them.Our techs clean rugs in the home constantly. So many customers would rather have it done that way, if there are not special circumstances (like urine or ink) Not sure how they pull it off, but they do! j/k, they are provided with good knowledge (often neutral detergent), know the importance of quick drying as well as retaining the original shape of the rug clean fringe well and provide protective paper during drying--much like Mikey does with his plastic sheeting. Rugs are fun! And profitable! just clean em well and dry em well.
