Hi, my name’s Andy Lindelof with Platinum Floor Care your professional carpet cleaners in Largo, Fl. We clean anything, from carpets to upholstery, to your shower walls. We also do wood floors, we do terrazzo, we do travertine.
What we have here, this is your solution line and this is your vac line. The solution line’s coming in with fresh hot water, which gets mixed with an acid wash. And what the acid wash does is, you’re cleaning with a pH of like a 12 or 13, and we’re rinsing with a pH of, let’s say, a 3, which is gonna bring your carpets back to 7, which is neutral.
So, what I have Matt doing right now is putting down a pre-spray, which is basically the soap. So, the soap is basically gonna be your cleaner, which is gonna loosen up the dirt, which is gonna loosen up the grease, which is gonna loosen up anything that’s embedded into the carpet.
When cleaning doorways, you always clean towards the inside, and that way, you’re not pulling dirt to that edge of that line and then it sits there. You’ll end up with like a black spot at your threshold.
So, I’ve been cleaning with the wet, with the water down, and then go back over it with no water on, just to suck up any excess that didn’t get picked up on the first passes.
This is a little bit different than the cleaner that you would get from when you rented a machine from like your local hardware store, or your Publix, or your Home Depot.
