Some people following the green cleaning movement that has taken center stage in the North American cleaning industry are actually quite surprised it is happening now and coming on so strong. About 30 years ago, many of the advocates for green cleaning and the use of environmentally preferable cleaning products - those used for general cleaning as well as floor and carpet care - believed that eventually federal (or other government entities) would need to step in and start mandating the use of these products.
Problems can result during carpet cleaning, and when they do, they can be costly. Usually, the biggest danger is over-wetting, which most often occurs when using older carpet extractors or poorly adjusted machines that suck water out at too low a pressure during the extraction process. But it also can occur when shampooing carpets or bonnet cleaning, especially when too much shampoo is applied.
Without question, carpet is a preferred and widely used floor covering. There are almost 200 billion square feet of carpet currently installed in more than 100 million buildings in the U.S. In 2004, 21 billion square feet of carpet was manufactured and delivered to homes, offices, schools, health centers, and office buildings, according to statistics published by the Carpet and Rug Institute in Dalton, Ga.
