Carpet Cleaning:

Commercial carpeting can be made of any kind of fiber. If the fiber is olefin or wool, follow the tech helps for those particular fiber types. The main difference in cleaning commercial carpeting versus residential carpeting is that commercial carpeting tends to be more heavily soiled and has more greasy soils in it. To combat these heavy, greasy soils, more powerful, higher pH solutions should be used. These solutions are not approved for stain-resistant carpeting.



  • Portables: Mix 2 ounces of Impact into 5 gallons of water.
  • Truck mounts: Mix 1 quart of Impact into 5 gallons of water for stock solution concentrate.

  2. Dilute pre-spray (traffic lane cleaner) into a pump-up or inline sprayer and spray onto all traffic lane areas.
  3. Use a groomer to groom in the pre-spray and allow a 10-minute dwell time. Do not allow pre-spray to dry on the carpet.
  4. Put diluted detergent into carpet extractor and clean carpet.
  5. To neutralize carpet, dilute an acid rinse into a pump-up sprayer, inline sprayer, or extractor and apply to carpet.
