Carpet Maintenance Knowledge - Temporary Cleaning Method

- Jul 10, 2019-

Temporary cleaning methods include sweeping the carpet, vacuuming, cleaning with a floor machine with a rotating yarn wiper, and handling stains. Temporary carpet care is absolutely necessary to remove sand and stains in time to prevent them from being embedded in the carpet and causing premature failure of the soft surface. The book "Sweeping Team Management" says that there are three sources of dirt: dirt from outside, stains, water stains, dust from the interior, and animal and vegetable oil from restaurants and kitchens.

The accumulation of dirt on the carpet is divided into three levels. The upper layer is lighter dirt, ash, sticky sugar and oily dirt; the middle layer is slightly heavier dust particles and organic matter; the bottom layer is heavy particles such as sand and soil. Although sand and soil particles are not necessarily visible, they have the greatest damage to soft surfaces because they damage soft surface fibers.

It is estimated that 79% of the dirt can be removed with a vacuum cleaner. However, viscous and oily things will continue to gather and stick dry things to the carpet fibers, causing damage to the carpet. Although cleaning with a vacuum cleaner is an important means of extending the life of the carpet, it is not enough to use a vacuum cleaner. All carpets must be periodically rehabilitated.

Vacuum with a vertical vacuum cleaner or a hose cleaner. The plug of the cord can be plugged into the power outlet at the beginning. The plug must be a grounded three-wire plug. Check the wires and plugs for wear. Start vacuuming from the wall with the socket, then move away from the socket, taking care to prevent the wires from getting entangled. Prepare a 0.76 m (3 ft) long slash for hauling. It is usually enough to suck twice on the carpet. Be careful not to smoke too fast, always pay attention to whether the stirring brush and the aspirator are working properly. When the vacuum cleaner is running, its trajectory should be slightly overlapped. When pushing the machine to vacuum, the fluffy side of the carpet will be pressed down a little by the machine. Move furniture as little as possible to avoid hitting furniture and walls.

When cleaning is complete, check the used dusting brush and belt, replace if necessary, and pour out the dirt from the filter bag. The dust should be vacuumed after the dust on the furniture is wiped off.

Cleaning with a floor machine with a rotating yarn pad is often attributed to other regenerative cleaning methods, but it should be classified as a temporary cleaning method.

A multi-purpose floor cleaner is used to clean a standard floor machine with a rotary yarn pad, rotary yarn pad washer, nozzle, clean water, bucket and wringer.

First use a vacuum cleaner to vacuum the area to be cleaned, then spray the detergent within 1 m X 2 m (4 ft x 8 ft) and spray the rotary wire pad onto the detergent solution. Then drag the machine with the rotating yarn pad over the place and repeat until the entire carpet is cleaned. When the edge of the placed yarn pad begins to get dirty, it should be turned over and turned to the clean side. When the entire rotary yarn pad is dirty, wash it in the bucket and wring it out.

When the cleaning is complete, rinse all the equipment thoroughly, then wash the rotating yarn mat and dry. Do not put the furniture back in place until the carpet is completely dry.

Cleaning with a rotary yarn padding floor machine can result in a certain degree of wear of the carpet fibers. One thing to reiterate is that this method should not be seen as a method of restorative cleaning.

Finally, use a sweeper to clean the dirt and particles on the rug so that they do not get on the surface of the carpet and gather in the soft surface of the carpet. It is convenient to use a carpet sweeper in the dining room, and the waiter can use them for partial cleaning under the table and in the aisle.
