~ INTERMEDIATE MAINTENANCE ~
CLEANING CAUTION: Carpets with jute backing should not be overwet as it may cause the carpet to shrink. Low moisture methods such as Host and Whittaker have proven to be successful.
• Heavy traffic areas which begin to show soiling can be cleaned without cleaning the entire carpet by using:
A. An impregnated absorbent powder that is brushed into the pile. After the powder has absorbed the dirt and dried, usually 30-45 minutes, the dry compound and soil are removed by vacuuming. This system when properly used can delay periodic wet cleaning, sometimes indefinitely.
B. Fabric bonnet either impregnated with shampoo or used with spread foam on rotary brushmachine. This system can be use for surface cleaning on loop pile carpets only. This system is not recommended for cut pile carpets because of pile distortion and texture loss.
