Advances in carpet design, manufacturing, and maintenance have made it a viable alternative to hard floors in many facilities. Carpets are natural filters, capturing most dirt and soil. However, they tend to hide dirt better than hard floors, so waiting to clean carpets until they look dirty is too late. To keep your carpeted floors looking their best, Buckeye offers routine, interim, and restorative maintenance procedures in their various maintenance training programs.
Buckeye’s training programs detail the maintenance needs of matting and wall to wall carpeting. Daily maintenance depends heavily on things like the amount of traffic in certain areas of your facility. Though daily maintenance can, for the most part, keep carpets and matting in your facility clean, interim and restorative procedures are also important. Over time, carpets can become soiled to the point where vacuuming and spot cleaning are not adequate. A more thorough surface cleaning or deep cleaning is needed. As winter approaches, winter weather may also require deeper carpet cleaning. Snow melt and other debris can quickly become embedded in carpeting or matting. Buckeye’s training programs supply a guide to deeper cleaning procedures as well.
Buckeye’s complete line of carpet care products can cover all of your facility carpet care needs. The Eco® Proportioning Program offers several carpet cleaning products, including Eco Carpet Spotter E51 and Eco Extraction Cleaner E52. With Eco, Buckeye makes it possible to standardize your facility’s cleaning program. Eco proportioning systems automatically dilute super concentrated products accurately every time. Whether diluting carpet care products, food service area products, or restroom cleaning products, Eco provides standardized operating procedures to your maintenance staff. Beyond that, the Eco Proportioning Program considers space availability, the number of products your facility will need, and whether or not those products require additional security.
Depending on the needs of your facility, Buckeye’s carpet care training programs and products can be customized to fit your needs. Because dirt can easily get embedded in carpet, it is important to clean your carpets often and well. Contact your local Buckeye representative to learn more about how Buckeye can help with carpet care in your facility.
Some people avoid installing carpet in facilities because they think cleaning the carpet will be an unsurmountable challenge. Luckily, with a standardized maintenance program and Buckeye products, it doesn’t have to be. Buckeye offers a wide variety of carpet care products that can match any carpet care needs. Buckeye carpet care products remove stubborn stains, are cost effective, and extend carpet life!
Buckeye has carpet care products for extraction, shampooing, spot removal, traffic lane cleaning, surface cleaning and specialty spot removing. For example, Beta-Gone™ Betadine® Carpet Spotter is a carpet and upholstery spotter designed to remove Betadine stains. It also is great for daily cleaning, as a pretreatment before other cleaning procedures, and removes stubborn iodine stains. Another product, Touch & Go™ Carpet Surface Cleaner, can be used to quickly remove surface soils (oil and water-based) when used with a bonnet cleaning system and is fast drying. It is even compatible with new generation carpets. If you need a soil retardant, Shelter™ can extend the life of your carpet by protecting carpet fibers from the penetration of dirt, soils, and stains. Even oil-based liquids stay beaded on the carpet surface for easy removal. Shelter also won’t change the color of lighter carpets as other protective systems tend to do.
Buckeye also offers the Buckeye Carpet Spotting Kit. The kit includes all of the tools necessary for any carpet stain, all packaged in one convenient carrying case. It includes Gone™ H202 Carpet Spot Cleaner, Beta-Gone Betadine Carpet Spotter, Stabilize™ RTU Anti-Browning Treatment, and Gum, Tar, & Oil™ Remover Carpet Spotter. It also contains a carpet bone, carpet brush, spotting cloth, rubber gloves, and a Spotting Guide.
For schools and universities, the Buckeye Honors Program includes a special section on Buckeye carpet care products and recommended training procedures. This program is a complete online custodial training program for schools and universities in routine cleaning, carpet care, and more. The website features the complete program and materials that are available 24 hours a day to meet any carpet care needs.
Carpeted flooring can be difficult to keep clean in any facility, especially in areas with high foot traffic. Buckeye Eco® Carpet Spotter E51 and Eco Extraction Cleaner E52 can help, specifically, with carpeted floors. Both products can be used with the Buckeye Eco Proportioning Program and are Woolsafe® approved.
Buckeye’s Eco Carpet Spotter E51 is a concentrated, full spectrum spotter that is effective on both oil and water-based stains. E51 uses an encapsulation technology to prevent re-soiling and is independently tested for the highest standards in performance and safety. It may be used on not only water-based stains, but oil stains too. Soil will become bonded to the chemistry for post spotting removal. There are many benefits to using E51 with your cleaning program. It can help any facility save on inventory and employee training dollars, all while being safer and effective to use.
Buckeye’s Eco Extraction Cleaner E52 is highly concentrated and designed to be used as a hot water carpet extraction cleaner at 1 oz. per gallon. The chemistry in E52 bonds with the oil, grease, dirt or other soil and removes it quickly with the aid of the hot water. E52 is effective on both oil and water-based soils, is low foaming, and leaves no residue to promote the re-soiling of carpet fibers. It can also help prevent the clogging of extraction jets, which saves time and money spent on costly machine maintenance. Be sure to check out Buckeye’s Eco Proportioning Program for a list of products that can be used together to provide your facility with the highest quality cleaning program.
