It is obvious that commercial carpet is different from the carpet in your home. It is much thinner, and hard to the touch. In fact it is usually installed directly to the subfloor (concrete); actually glued down into place. It is this glue down installation of the commercial carpet that makes steam cleaning so ineffective (using vacuum extraction). It makes sense that the system designed for carpet cleaning is optimized to get great results. However, it is optimized for residential carpets and the padded install. It will not give very good results on a commercial installation. Yet, that is exactly what many carpet cleaners offer to the Facility Manager… a residential cleaning method.
The cleaning method used by Advanced Cleaning Systems (ACS) on commercial carpet is specific for commercial carpets and their installation. The cleaning theory is sound, in fact it was awarded excellence as a Deep Cleaning method by the Carpet & Rug Institute (CRI)! Our commercial carpet cleaning system is a vastly superior Very Low Moisture Cleaning (VLMC) system, optimized for commercial carpet and their installation.
Dries quickly, in 1 hour, not 1 day
Businesses can’t wait 24-48 hours for carpets to dry after being cleaned. Our VLMC system uses 90-95% less water than typical steam cleaning, so surfaces dry FAST (1 hour). That means you minimize the interruption to the business operations so you can get back to a productive workplace quickly, generating revenue.
In fact, some of our commercial accounts elect to have the carpets cleaned while they work! Our system is just that dry and safe, and the noise is minimal...a loud whisper.
Provide a healthier environment for your employees and customers
Typical steam cleaning uses an excessive amount of water that penetrates through to the backing of your carpets. Steam cleaning relies on vacuum extraction to remove this excess water and dirt. Vacuum extraction on commercial installation (glue-down, little or no pad) is ineffective, as demonstrated by the many reappearing spots seen on most commercial carpets after cleaning with this process. Poor extraction of excess water leads to extended dry times (complete drying, including backing) and creates a breeding ground for mold, mildew and bacteria. a very stinky and unhealthy environment!
Our VLMC system keeps the carpet backing dry, so there is no mildew or mold, reducing the chance of sick building syndrome (SBS) and employee sick days. Remember, a clean work environment helps build employee morale and provides for better marketing.
