Secret To Cleaning Filtration Soils

Have you given up on cleaning filtration soiling along walls in your customers carpeted homes? 

Cleaning filtration soils has always been an issue for many carpet cleaners.  They are generally not easy to clean, require much more time and labor, and the cleaner must charge additional money to compensate for the time and effort to get them out.

The first thing that we stress to cleaners is to first remove the dry soil, lint, hair, soot, etc. by way of vacuuming.  Most filtration soils consist of a lot of dry particulate that is much more difficult to remove after it is wet.   The other important step is to get a good product to pre-spot with and a brush or agitation tool to work in the solution first.  CleanSource offers several filtration soil removers, as well as products used in combination.   The biggest component that most cleaners miss is the proper tool.  Most cleaners are using either their carpet wand or upholstery tool to rinse and extract the filtration soil out.  The groundbreaking tool that you must have if you want to successfully clean filtration soils and make money too is the tool below:
