CARPET CLEANING TERMS WICKING, SHEDDING, SPROUTING

CARPET CLEANING TERMS

WICKING, SHEDDING, SPROUTING

Wait!  What does that have to do with commercial carpet cleaning?

Wicks are what you burn on a candle.

And shedding?  I don’t bring my dog to the office!

As for sprouting, I might put that in my sandwich.

All three of these terms are also used by professional carpet cleaning technicians to describe certain carpet conditions that effect the overall look of your commercial carpet.  Terms that, if you are unfamiliar with them, might cause you to say or think – “What in the world are you talking about?”

To help clarify our communications with you, ServiceMaster Clean has compiled a glossary of commonly used commercial carpet cleaning terms to avoid creating the misunderstanding that we’re talking about your dog eating alfalfa sprouts while you were burning the candle at both ends!

Get The Facts On Vacuuming

COMMERCIAL CLEANING SERVICES

Hand put the last piece of jigsaw puzzle to complete the mission

Vacuuming Facts

Based on an analysis conducted by Dupont Company, in a typical commercial office environment 74-79% of carpet soil is dry and insoluble and must be removed with regular vacuuming. Otherwise, it will remain in your carpet even after solution-based deep cleaning. The remaining 16-22% soluble soil requires cleaning solution to dissolve before removal can be accomplished.

Removing loose soil, while it remains on the carpet surface, prevents dirt from moving down to the lower levels of the carpet pile and damage the carpet fibres. Without regular vacuuming and cleaning, most carpet wears out or devolves to an unacceptable appearance long before it should.

This is why professional carpet cleaning specialists always insist on vacuuming—not only on a regular basis—but especially prior to deep cleaning and extraction. In fact, the Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI) Carpet Maintenance Guidelines state that carpet should be vacuumed prior to deep cleaning as it makes a significant difference in the end result.

If your carpets are looking weathered, it may be time to examine your vacuuming program with a carpet maintenance professional.

Let ServiceMaster Clean’s professional carpet technicians help reduce the effects of the past and provide a brighter future for your carpet!
