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

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
Your or any potential customer is calling you and exploring the options you offer because they have a problem they need you to solve it. So that customer has a dirty carpet, rug or piece of furniture or all of the above.
