pre-scrubbing

Post by Matt; My carpet cleaner on Wed Jan 18, 2017 2:42 pm

If your using a floor buffer; what would be the max speed you'd feel safe scrubbing with? Typical 175 rpms, but what about 300rpms??

Depends on the carpet. Residential would be 175 for all except maybe Berbers. On commercial, you can push it to 300 and probably be okay if it is in good condition.

If you're scrubbing with a machine like that, aren't you going to splash muds from the carpet to the walls ?

Shouldn't be much mud if you pre-vac first. I run the CRB without the trays and go right up to the baseboards without slinging anything to the walls. I think you could do the same with a fast rotary machine.

Just keep it moving and dont stat in one spot for too long especially on cut pile to avoid tip bloom.

If youre worried about carpet damage use a brush attachment instead of a 100 percent cotton pad, a synthetic pad would be less aggressive as well.

If you sling mud everywhere just put a little on your face, Its great for your complexion Very Happy

Oh, I assumed he was talking about with a brush attachment. I guess I shouldn't have jumped to that conclusion so quickly.

usually if your worried about damage to carpet your not in a situation where you need to pre scrub

I dont worry about max temps on trashed rat nasty filth poo carpet, nobody is after their warranty there.
