Water comes under the microscope
January 14, 2011
CHICAGO — At the recent ISSA/INTERCLEAN North America® tradeshow, several presenters discussed the fact that Green cleaning is evolving into sustainable cleaning, according to a press release.
With this in mind, CFR, manufacturers of filtering and recycling carpet extractors, contacted nearly 600 carpet cleaning professionals, asking them to answer questions regarding water use and carpet cleaning, the release noted.
"Our first question asked how much water a conventional portable extractor uses," says Doug Berjer, Product Manager for CFR.
"Most respondents answered ''less than a gallon of water per minute;'' however, this is not correct," Berjer added.
According to the release, the survey also asked how much time it takes to empty and refill a portable extractor and what would happen if too much water is left in carpets after cleaning.
