There is a lot to know about floor cleaning! I never thought about all that was involved in making carpets not only be clean, but stay clean longer.
Aaron has all these gizmos and gadgets and manly power tools around to help him in getting the best clean he can. And he’s into it, too! I’m learning new terms and technologies such as Hydramaster, rotary extraction, emulsification, protectant, dye-blockers, sub-surface injection, etc.. He advertises as a “Clean Freak” and let me tell you … he is! Sometimes I’m afraid to walk on the carpets in the office simply because they yell, “CLEAN”!
It’s all very interesting and I find myself curious and even getting excited about things like grout and upholstery and ceramic tile versus stone. One day I gushed to my good friend about all the things I’ve been learning. Well, my friend is green. Not jolly giant green but, you know, environmentally friendly. Don’t get me wrong, I am too, but she is “natural” in so many ways – one of which is in the chemicals she allows herself to be exposed to. Naturally (no pun intended) I asked Aaron about this. It turns out he does a green clean! Aaron uses an environmentally friendly pre-spray called Envirex.
As it happens, although chemicals and detergents can get a carpet super clean, they also have a tendency to stay inside that carpet. Their very presence attracts dirt and grime so that your newly cleaned carpet can be dirty again even sooner than you expected. Egads!
Aaron overcomes this by using a biodegradable emulsifier as a pre-spray. Then he has this nifty machine that rinses through your carpet without leaving any residue behind. He can even clean a carpet with no pre-spray or cleaner at all, just water, and because of the rotary-extraction process, it’s still an excellent clean. How’s that for a “green” clean?! Clean carpets promote clean homes, clean homes promote clean living, clean living promotes clean health. I feel good. I feel wholesome. I feel that it’s okay to love my job again.
Remember! For the best carpet cleaning in Fresno, give Aaron’s Quality Cleaners a call!
