Traffic lanes are a bane to many a homeowner as they not only are unsightly but are signs of damage being done to their carpet. If this damage is allowed to continue without professional intervention it can often be permanent. Thankfully here at Premium Carpet Care our technicians have the tools and knowledge needed to properly clean traffic lanes.
One client in the ferry pass area had been trying her best to protect her carpet against the onslaught it had been bearing due to her two young boys occupying a small apartment with her. She vacuumed regularly but knew this would not be enough. She knew she needed professional help fast! So she called Premium Carpet Care and technicians Roger and Richard were sent out to her residence. Upon completing the pre-inspection their conclusion was this course of action: first they would thoroughly vacuum with their industrial grade vacuum cleaner, this would extract all the dry soil from the carpet and relax the fibers to prepare them for wet cleaning. Then they would spray a neutral detergent that would emulsify and suspend the stains and dirt in the carpet. Afterwards they would take an alkaline spotter and spray that into the traffic lanes and agitate them with a carpet rake. The agitation and alkaline spotter would breakup the dirt and stains composing the traffic lane. Next 300 PSI of 180 Degree Fahrenheit water would be rinsed into the carpet and extracted with the vacuum suction of the wand. In the above photo you can see the outcome of this process mid way as the lighter area on the left is where the wand has already cleaned up the traffic lane and the darker areas are the next places to be cleaned by the wand. The client was ecstatic at the results and the two technicians pleased to see her happy.
