CHICAGO — CFR Corporation, which manufactures recycling carpet cleaning extractors and related tools and equipment, has announced that its goal in 2012 is to put a much greater emphasis on what the company calls "responsible cleaning," according to a press release.
Responsible cleaning refers to cleaning strategies that are designed to help protect the environment as well as natural resources, specifically water, the release stated.
"We want cleaning professionals and carpet cleaning technicians to be more aware of the need to use water responsibly," said Doug Berjer, product manager for CFR.
"Historically, it has just not been much of a concern. But, responsible water use is a growing problem that will impact both the JanSan and carpet cleaning industries in the near future," Berjer added.
According to the release, it can even impact sales.
For instance, more corporate customers are requiring Environmental Preferable Purchasing (EPP) statements of all vendors, including building and carpet cleaning contractors, the release noted.
