WOOL - SAVANNA & BIZON RANGES

Bentzon carpets are very easily maintained with regular cleaning, which is not only important from an aesthetic and hygienic point of view but also contributes towards preserving the value of the carpet. Daily removal of the loose and slightly adhesive dirt by vacuuming eliminates the effects of accelerated wear resulting from the soil being embedded into the carpet fibre by regular traffic. Dry vacuuming should be carried out in the direction of the weave.

In addition to regular cleaning with a vacuum, spills and stains can be overcome with minimum care and if simple procedures are followed – see table below.

It is recommended that a planned maintenance program include a cleaning system such as “Host” low moisture extraction (available worldwide) – where the carpet is sprayed with a cleaning agent and subsequently rinsed using moist cleaning pads and only a small amount of water - most professional carpet cleaners should be aware of this cleaning method. This will ensure maximum appearance retention and performance of the carpet.

PLEASE NOTE THE FOLLOWING POINTS:

  • The use of inappropriate chemicals may cause permanent damage to the carpet. Be cautious about using off-the-shelf carpet cleaning detergents.

  • Do not use shampoos and cleaners with a spirit base. PH neutral non-film forming cleaning agents should be used. Make sure the cleaning agent is completely removed from the fibres to avoid discoloration.

  • Before cleaning, make sure the carpet is properly glued down to avoid damage.

  • Never rub the carpet when spot cleaning. Solutions should be blotted up or dabbed gently with a colour-fast towel.

  • Act quickly – the longer the stain remains unattended the harder it will be to remove.

DAILY CLEANING - REGULAR VACUUMING

Regular vacuuming of the whole carpet should take place even when the carpet does not look particularly dirty. Areas where heavy foot traffic is directed through such as doorways, entrances and at the edges of the carpet where it joins hard floors require special attention. Proper vacuuming requires 3 to 5 passes at slow speed over the same area.

INTERIM CLEANING METHODS

ABSORBENT POWDERS: in this system, the absorbent powder cleaning compound is sprinkled evenly over the surface of the carpet and brushed in using a counter-rotating brush. After about 20 minutes the dry compound is vacuumed away using a powerful vacuum cleaner. This system works very well on greasy stains and, being a dry compound, it is safe to use on all types of carpet and tile installations. We do not recommend this system for use in areas prone to wet spillages.

SPILLAGES & STAINS

WET SPILLAGES: should be mopped up immediately. Most spillages respond well to immediate treatment, thereby preventing permanent staining. Please follow RC & D Stain Checklist and Treatment Guide for further information. Please do not walk on the carpet until it is completely dry.

HIGH FOAM SHAMPOOS: the high foaming shampoo is brushed over the pile surface using a special applicator with brushing action. The carpet is left to dry thoroughly, and the dry shampoo crystals are vacuumed away. RC & D prefer the use of a machine applicator with counter-rotating brushes to lift the pile. Flat rotating bonnet mop or brush applicators can untwist, mat, and flatten the pile of the carpet and we do not recommend their use.

PROFESSIONAL CLEANING

HOT WATER EXTRACTION SYSTEMS: In this system, the carpet pile is sprayed with a shampoo solution, which is lightly agitated with a grooming brush for an appropriate time, next the surface is passed over several times with a cleaning tool to thoroughly rinse out the pre-conditioner and soils, using an acetic acid solution, lower the Ph of the fabric to a neutral state. Finally, the surface is dried sufficiently to avoid any possibility of saturation.

BARRIER MATTING: where fitted, should be vacuumed daily and cleaned out regularly in order to prevent build-up and transfer of soil or greasy substances to the carpet. For cleaning and maintenance of barrier matter, please contact the manufacturer of the particular product.
