Using Janitorial Mops and Carpet Bonnets

Bonnet Cleaning

For carpets, one procedure that works particularly well is bonnet cleaning. It involves a moisture technique, where a carpet is pretreated with cleaning chemicals and then a bonnet is used in a side by side motion. You can use a wide variety of cleaning chemicals to treat the dirty carpets. The surface is also thoroughly cleaned, making it look fresh and inviting.

For this method to be effective though, the right carpet bonnets need to be used. A popular option is a bonnet with looped end yarns that can be used multiple times. The special yarns attract and hold whatever dirt is in the carpet. This type of carpet bonnet can also be used multiple times after a thorough washing.

You also have to think about the design of the bonnet you use. Some can be used strictly by hand, while others are compatible with automatic floor cleaning machines.

Not all carpet bonnets are created equal, and ETC is proud to offer the most durable and reliable carpet bonnet in the industry today. ETC’s Tiger® carpet bonnet features a looped-end synthetic yarn with non-abrasive pile lifting and cleaning stripes. This double-sided, washable carpet bonnet delivers long wear and minimal linting. A smaller version, the Tiger Paw®, produces the same results but is small enough to use for spot cleaning on carpet and upholstery.

Cleaning with ETC’s Tiger® carpet bonnet produces several key benefits, including efficient cleaning and rapid drying. This method also evens out the appearance of a carpet between low-traffic and high-traffic areas and pulls out addition soil left behind after extraction.

Price is another important factor when it comes to cleaning. ETC’s Tiger® carpet bonnets are cost-effective because most facilities already have bonnet cleaning equipment on hand, and the speed of cleaning with this method reduces overall carpet maintenance costs. We know that property managers and building owners are always trying to save money, and this low-cost means of maintaining carpet is cost-effective for nearly any facility.

Floor care for your commercial business shouldn’t ever be overlooked. Your company’s reputation and image depend on it, which you can easily maintain when you have the right floor cleaning products, like janitorial mops, on hand.
