Its a game changer and you had better be ready when and if it affects YOU. Our world is changing as new buildings are opting to go green and Eco Friendly. This means green paint with low or no toxins, green shingles, green janitorial supplies etc,. Everything green including the newer Eco Friendly, less expensive water soluble glues that adhere carpets to floors with no or low off-gassing odors.
You show up to carpet clean a hallway and you see the normal nylon or poly carpet that you have cleaned with hot water extraction for years. You aggressively clean it as it is extremely soiled all the while having no conception of what glues were used to hold the carpet in place.
You get that call you are not expecting from your customer. “What the heck did you do to our carpets??” as they are all rippled and split and what are you going to do about it now before we have trip and fall lawsuits.
You are the professional. You are expected to know these things prior to cleaning so says the judge. “GUILTY!”
Your insurance will also tell you they will not honor your claim due to inexperience and unprofessionalism.
These green buildings or new installations are now being told by carpet sales and installation people to Dry Clean for safety.
Are you losing business? Should you now be offering dry cleaning? Do you understand dry cleaning? Are you aware that a controlled appropriate portion of moisture is still necessary when dry cleaning. The professional consultants at Kleen Kuip Supply Mart Inc. would be happy to discuss the pros and cons with you at your convenience.
Before a disaster happens to you and your company.
