MUKILTEO, WA — Most cleaning and building professionals know that heat is one of the four fundamentals of effective cleaning (the other three are time, agitation, and chemical action). However, some professionals are unaware of why heat is so essential when it comes to cleaning carpets.
To clarify these hot issues, we turn to Doyle Bloss, vice president of sales for U.S. Products (manufacturer of hot-water carpet extractors).
Bloss offers the following top 10 reasons to use heat when cleaning carpets, as well as explaining why heat is so crucial to effective carpet cleaning:
"It can be generalized that the hotter the temperature, the greater the ability for the cleaning process to be effective," adds Bloss. "While this may not be true in every carpet cleaning situation, it is certainly true in most."*
*Note: Some protein-based stains such as blood, egg, and gravy should be cleaned with cool water. Also, wool carpets should not be cleaned with water/solution over 160°F.
