Winter Salt Stain Remover for Salty Carpets & Floors

How to Remove Winter Salts Stains from Carpets and Floors

How to remove winter salt stains from carpets and floors.As carpet cleaners we are expected to effectively remove carpet salt stains that get tracked into residential homes, commercial buildings etc., If removal of these salty floor stains is not performed on a regular basis then it becomes more difficult to clean.

Acid rinses such as Acetic Acid are just not that effective anymore due to the new Ice Melt products. The answer is to use the proper product for the job (KK Salt Reducer).

Don’t let ice melt chemicals dull carpet and floors. Formula KK Salt Reducer is an original formula that restores beauty to floors and carpets by removing the white film left by ice melting chemicals. KK Salt Reducer demineralizes salt deposits and reduces slip hazards. Floor finishes and carpeting last longer.

Great for car interiors, floor mats, you can even spray it on salty boots and shoes and use a brush to wipe clean.

Ice Melt Removal Procedure for Carpets:

  • Vacuum (HEPA) or Pile Lift
  • Spray KK Salt Reducer onto carpet and give it some time to dwell.
  • Hot steam clean with a carpet cleaning extraction machine.
  • Pad clean with rotary machine (preferably cotton pad)
  • If need be, pad again and or vacuum the next day.

Salt Stain Remover for Carpets & Floors

This method can be a lot of work but the other options give poor results.

When the job is completed, sometimes the salt will wick back up when the carpet dries. A simple pad cleaning or vacuuming can remove this residue.

Never have we had so much interest in a product as this year. Get ready for Spring and stock-up.

Nineteen Costly Marketing Mistakes (Part 1 of 2)

by Joe Polish, founder
Piranha Marketing Part 1 of 2…Here is Part 2

blog_Common-Marketing-Mistakes-and-how-to-avoid-them

Carpet cleaners could dramatically increase their number of new customers and referrals if they would avoid these costly marketing mistakes. Here, in the first of a two part article are nine mistakes to avoid.

Mistake 1: Advertising to the wrong market. If you advertise low price, you’ll attract people who want low price. And the problem with price shoppers is that they’re never loyal to you. They’re loyal only to the dollar. As soon as your competitor offers a lower price than you ask, these price shoppers go to your competitor and you’ve lost a customer. If you want to attract low price shoppers, then, by all means advertise low price. But if you want to attract people who are willing to pay for the service they receive, don’t advertise price. Advertise value.

Mistake 2: Advertising percentage off rather than dollars off. Carpet cleaners often advertise a special 20% discount for new customers. Yet many prospects don’t know the carpet cleaners’ regular prices so they can’t tell you how much money they’ll save. Instead, I suggest you advertise in dollars, such as Carpet cleaning just $59. You save $30 off our regular price!

Mistake 3: Failing to advertise your unique selling proposition (USP). The purpose of marketing is to tell your prospective customers how you’re unique. Your USP is the one thing that sets you apart form your competitors. Start by identifying what you do that’s different from everyone else. For example, your USP might be exceptional customer service, the lowest price for the most effective cleaning equipment. Then feature your unique selling proposition in the headline of your ads.

Mistake 4: Failing to point out how you’re different. People hire you because they think you’re different from the other carpet cleaners. So it’s your job to point out to prospective clients how you’re different. In your ads if you say. Two rooms for $29. Licensed, bonded, insured, you’re saying the same thing as every other carpet cleaner. Instead, tell your prospects why customers choose you instead of your competitors. Identify unusual services you perform, such as removing pet odour. Reassure your prospects that you have trained, certified technicians.

Mistake 5: Failing to overcome phone call fear. Consumers are tired of selling sales pressure. In fact, many consumers hate pressure so much that they don’t call because they’re afraid you might try to pressure them into making a decision. The hesitation that keeps them form calling is call phone call fear. It’s the fear of how they think you might treat them over the telephone. To overcome phone call fear, reassure callers that you don’t use sales pressure. Offer free information that you’ll send to anyone who calls. Offer a free consumer awareness message on voice mail to help educate consumers about carpet cleaning. This allows prospects to get information in a non-threatening way, and it allows you to establish a high level of credibility.

Mistake 6: Using dishonest or misleading advertising. This seems obvious but many carpet cleaners continue to use misleading advertising to attract calls from prospects. When you mislead customers, you lower yourself to the same level as bait-and-switch con artists. Over the long term, you won’t benefit because once customers discover they’ve been misled, they’ll never do business with you again. You gain nothing by misleading customers. In marketing, a straightforward, honest approach is the only method that works.

Mistake 7: Failing to explain how your prospect benefits. Your prospective customers want your service for only one reason: What it will do for me? Don’t concentrate on the features of your service; instead, identify each feature and then explain how that feature benefits your prospect in terms of what he needs, wants and feels.

Mistake 8: Failing to promote benefits other than appearance. No question about it, most homeowners want a clean carpet. But they want other things, too. A healthy carpet free from toxic chemicals; a home free from embarrassing pet odours; and a clean carpet that will wear longer than a dirty carpet. Appearance is only one reason homeowners want their carpets cleaned. Make sure you promote other benefits as well.

Mistake 9: Failing to stay in touch with your customer base. Customers are a source of income of your current business and future referrals. The moment they feel you don’t care about their business, they’ll go somewhere else. I urge you to stay in touch with customers by publishing a regular newsletter that provides them with practical, helpful information.

Bonnet, Spin Pad Carpet Cleaning

Theory

Bonnet cleaning is commonly referred to as a “dry” carpet cleaning system. Although not completely dry, bonnet cleaning is considered a low moisture carpet cleaning system. Bonnet cleaning is accomplished by spraying a detergent/solvent solution over the face of the carpet pile. This can be done with hand pump style sprayers, power sprayers, CO2 pressure tanks or specialized spray systems attached to the floor machine. Immediately after spraying Carpet Cleaning Polymer, the carpet is buffed with an absorbent pad attached to the machine. The carpet soil is absorbed into the pad. The pad is changed as it becomes soiled and thoroughly laundered prior to the next job. Best results are obtained when the pads are changed before becoming too wet.

Problem: Rotovac Over-Wetting Carpets

Question: I use a Rotovac and i love it. i would never use anything else since it does ten times a better job than a wand and is 1/4 of the work. but………it does leave the carpet a lot wetter! does any Rotovac users have any suggestions or recommendations for this? i have talked with Rotovac a few times on this and tried a few different things but has not made much of a difference, it seems to loose major suction once the vacuum hose gets attached!

Possible Solution: Some users of the Rotovac 360i Carpet Cleaning Head complain of over-wetting carpets. Keep in mind that the Rotovac needs regular maintenance to keep it running at it’s best. Also, a dry pass or two may be necessary.
