MUKILTEO, WA — Today''s custodial workers are being asked to perform more cleaning duties than ever before, including carpet cleaning, according to a press release.
But, as most carpet cleaning technicians will testify, carpet cleaning is a science and, like many sciences, it has its own terms and vocabulary, the release stated.
According to the release, U.S. Products designed a Test-Your-Knowledge Quiz to help custodial workers learn more about carpets, their installation as well as their cleaning and maintenance.
"A term everyone that cleans carpets should know is hot-water extraction," said Mark Baxter, product manager for U.S. Products.
"This is the most effective way to ''deep clean'' carpets because it combines heated, pressurized water and powerful vacuums that reach deep into carpet fibers to remove soils," Baxter added.
