- THE MAGAZINE
Starting November 15, 2013, HydraMaster will host a seven-part Facebook series on cleaning chemistry misconceptions, according to a press release. The series is authored by Doyle Bloss, who has been involved in chemical formulating in the carpet cleaning industry for over 30 years, and presently serves as the chemical brand manager for HydraMaster and US Products.
Topics are as follows:
· Misconception #1 – More does better
· Misconception #2 – Cheaper is better - not understanding dilution rates in calculating the cost of chemicals
· Misconception #3 – You must use “Stain resist compatible” chemistry only, on warranted nylon carpets
· Misconception #4 – Where is pH measured? Concentrated or ready-to-use pH.
· Misconception #5 – No residue, low residue. Good residue, bad residue (Sounds like a Dr. Seuss Book)
· Misconception #6 – Acid rinsing or fresh water rinsing leaves the least amount of residue in carpet after cleaning
· Misconception #7 – Wool carpet is delicate and requires extreme caution to clean
Each session in the series will focus on the misconception, show how it could lead to some confusion, and then provide a simpler solution that can make carpet cleaning easier and more effective. While the series is geared toward the cleaning contractor, anyone involved in carpet cleaning will find applicable lessons to reduce the level of complexity necessary to do a better job.
