Kristin Messick at Omega Carpets wants to talk carpets
Every proprietor wants the best carpet for their center. This is accomplished by balancing carpet design, technology, value, and durability. For most proprietors, keeping their carpet investment looking like new is a high priority. Creating and sticking to a cleaning and maintenance plan is the best way to keep your center looking and smelling great. A solid plan includes a schedule for vacuuming, spot removal, interim cleaning, and deep cleaning.
This is where C.H.A.T. comes in:
C: Chemistry. 80% of carpet soil is dry particulates. The rest are binding agents. Chemistry separates and suspends the soil from the carpet fibers.
H: Heat. The temperature of the water in the cleaning equipment is very important to the cleaning process.
A: Agitation. Manipulating the carpet fibers to loosen stains is key to a deep cleaning process.
T: Time. Allow a pre-treatment, like Omega’s Infinity Stain Guard, to dwell on the carpet to allow chemistry to happen. Carpet drying time is necessary for the cleaning process.
The goal of C.H.A.T. is to preserve the appearance of and extend the life of your carpet. Deep cleaning is necessary, but daily vacuuming and maintenance are your best tools to keep your carpets looking pristine. The use of indoor and outdoor walk-off mats is vitally important to preserving your carpets, too. With a sweet-smelling, clean carpet, your center will be ready for the masses!
