Green Carpet Cleaning | Lexington 877-763-4789
We pride ourselves in the fact that we have always been at the leading edge of technology with our equipment. We have always gone above and beyond to make sure we are bringing you the latest and greatest technology available to allow the most thorough cleaning possible for your carpets. This being said the decision we made in the middle of 2012 stunned the carpet cleaning industry. How could the company that uses “the world’s most powerful cleaning machine” (referring to our $100,000.00 Vortex steam cleaning trucks) switch its carpet cleaning method to their new “Green Carpet Cleaning” method?
We get calls on a weekly basis from cleaners all over the country asking how we decided to make such a move and how it is working out.
Let me explain it to you as we do to them.
We have always been fans and advocates of steam cleaning and the fact that he with the most suction could give the most thorough cleaning, because suction is what removed the contaminants from the carpet. It is a fact that in the steam cleaning business if you have 5 cleaners all using the same cleaning agents, using the same techniques, and going at roughly the same speed the guy with the most suction would remove the highest amount of contamination and therefore be giving you the most thorough cleaning. You could equate dry time to cleaning effectiveness with this method of cleaning. The quicker it dried (with all other things being the same as above) the cleaner it was, period. The problem with this comparison is it only fairly compared apples to apples and did not allow for a comparison to a different cleaning method.
ATP (adenosine triphosphate) is found in all plant and animal cells, including bacteria, yeast and mold. Anything that has ever been alive has ATP present even if it is now dead. This would include other things like skin cells, hair cells, blood, urine, pet dander……………….you get the picture, all of the nasty stuff that settles into your carpet as well as the stuff that just decides to take root and grow there. One last example to drive the point home……..Every time you sneeze, those germs float around in the air for a while and then the settle to a surface and begin to multiply. Well there is no bigger surface in your home that gravity delivers things to than your floor. ATP testing is the most commonly used method in the world to examine the effectiveness of a cleaning process. The system and test was developed and field tested by BMI & NASA, so finally we can prove cleaning effectiveness with real science!
This is how the testing works. First you swab the carpet with a CSI style swab and place it back into its special tube. Once the swab is in the tube a bulb is broken which introduces a special solution to the swab and its contaminants. After shaking the tube for 5 seconds it is then placed inside the testing unit. Over the next 15 seconds the testing unit counts the ATP present on the swab and gives us a precise number of contaminants. Next we clean the area that has just been swabbed with whatever method we are testing. Once done cleaning we repeat the swab and test procedure above to receive a post cleaning contaminant count.
With this testing procedure we can now compare apples to oranges when it comes to different cleaning methods, processes and or chemistry.
So, besides all of the incredible benefits of Green Carpet Cleaning which I will include a few in a chart below, this testing is what it all came down to. Let me explain what we found.
By using simple math we were able to acquire the percentage of contamination a cleaning method would remove and the results blew us away. Our $100,000.00 Vortex (“the world’s most powerful cleaning machine”) truck mounted steam cleaning system averaged over several tests a contamination removal rate of 74%. Keep in mind this is higher than any other steam cleaner on the market.
Now we looked at the numbers from the side by side testing of your Trinity OP system with our Green Carpet Cleaning agents. These numbers came from side by side testing with our steam cleaning equipment on the same houses and businesses, same carpet and same areas. The average contamination removal rate of our Green Cleaning system was 94%! Amazing………..with Green Carpet Cleaning agents and a machine that scrubs and soaks stuff into a multi layered pad we removed 20% more contamination from the carpets than its steam cleaning counterpart. Secondly upon testing again when each method was dry, we found that the contamination number jumped considerably with steam cleaning because the warm damp environment was perfect for growth of whatever was left. The Green Carpet Cleaning methods contamination number did not rise for two reasons. Reason one is because there was not much of anything left to begin multiplying and secondly the Green Carpet Cleaning agent we use contains colloidal silver which is extremely safe and is known to kill over 600 different pathogens with a 6 minute or less exposure.
With the test results in and tallied, we could not argue with science. We made the decision to switch all of our carpet cleaning to the new Green Carpet Cleaning method. Technology wins again and we will always be on the lookout for the next best thing in the cleaning industry and bring it to you when it proves itself as this has.
