Is Bonnet Cleaning better than Extraction?

I recently saw this post on Encapsulation World and thought I would address it.


I had a customer call me to come out and re-clean their Carpeting after someone else with a truck mount cleaned them and the customer was not happy. When I was finished, my bonnets were black and the customer was thrilled. I was actually shocked how dirty the carpeting was after steam cleaning.😳

I have had many truck mounts and portables, so this isn’t about trashing extraction. Extraction can often remove more soils quicker but it doesn’t always look better. What? If done properly extraction is an excellent tool, but even so, it can use help at times.

How Do Carpet Protectors Work?

What are Fluoro Chemical Protectors and how they work

Written by:  Dr. Aziz, PHD Chemist

The major soiling problems that occur with textiles are 1) staining and the reappearance of stains after cleaning, 2) the accumulation of dry, oily soil, and 3) the accumulation of wet or waterborne soil. All of these soiling problems occur to greater or lesser extent depending on the particular textile material being considered. For example, staining and the deposition of airborne and clothing-borne dry soil are particular problems with upholstery. For carpets, the accumulation of dry soil and muddy, wet soil from trafficking is a real problem. The use of fluorochemical protectors on textiles offers a highly desirable benefit to the consumer. They impart resistance to water- and oil-based staining, give resistance to dry and wet soiling, and provide cleanability. Read more

Selling carpet cleaning appointments on the phone to price shoppers

We all love this call. 



“Hi, I’m Joan. I’ve just called 3 other companies and would like to know how much you charge?”

YOU: Well Joan, it’s like talking to your dentist. He wants to see the patient first, and so do I, before I commit to a price on an unseen location for carpet cleaning.

Joan: But I just need to know how much. How can I decide if I don’t know how much you charge? Read more

What to do when you don’t know what to do

Don’t let the twins win.

As the Founder of Bonnet Pro and Key Floor Care & Restoration, I have over 50 years combined time between my two companies. Pretty good since I’m only 53, right? Maybe.

Truth be told, I’m less like a business rock star and more like most of you. I barely graduated high school, coming from a broken family, and other then IICRC classes I have no other formal education. That’s where passion kicks in. Read more

Bonnet Cleaning Procedure

Assuming you have all methods at your fingertips, why are you choosing Bonnet Cleaning for any given job?

The reasons might be because it is the most profitable for a given job while providing high customer satisfaction. Or, access in a larger property that may have wings locked down such as in an Alzheimer’s unit or for other security reasons. Or, that a portable might just be too slow in that particular job. Dry times or the extra agitation that the rotary provides may be needed to get the desired results. Read more
