Carpets are a significant investment in facilities, and making them last as long as possible is best for a business’s budget. The Carpet and Rug Institute (CRI), Institute of Inspection Cleaning and Restoration Certification (IICRC), and the International Sanitary Supply Association (ISSA) all agree that properly cleaning carpets with an established maintenance program will help preserve carpet appearance and extend its life.

One part of a complete carpet maintenance program is dealing with spills and accidents quickly to prevent them from becoming stains. The number one line of defense for preventing stains is cleaning the spill quickly. At Whittaker, we have developed several portable Spotting Kits that allow for quick response and easy application of a spotting solution.
Handheld Spotting Kits
Keep your CRYSTAL SPOTTER® at hand with the CRYSTAL® Spot Tool Kit. The kit comes complete with two bottles of CRYSTAL SPOTTER®, one spray trigger, CRYSTAL® Spot Tool, and tool holder. Our custom-designed, 600 denier polyester tool holder comes with a steel belt clip, making it easy to clean spots on the go.
Whether a spill occurs between scheduled cleanings or an employee notices a spot while in the process of cleaning, CRYSTAL SPOTTER® can still be used. If the spill is fresh, first blot away excess liquid. Spray the solution on the spot and agitate it into the carpet fibers with the spot tool. After it dries and the soil is encapsulated, it can be vacuumed immediately or it can wait until the next scheduled vacuum cycle.
If your facility is prone to hard-to-treat stains like urine, coffee, or grease, carry all of our Specialty Spotters in the CRYSTAL® Spotting Kit.
The CRYSTAL® Spotting Kit includes CRYSTAL SPOTTER® and the Crystal Spot Tool, and it also adds our CRYSTAL RED STAIN® PLUS, CRYSTAL® ODOR & PROTEIN, CRYSTAL® OIL & GREASE, a hand brush, and an absorbent cotton towel. These pieces are all conveniently stored in a cardboard caddy that keeps each item easily accessible.
Carpet Roamer Package
For small area cleaning and easy spot cleaning, try the telescoping Carpet Roamer® Spotting Tool. The sturdy adjustable fiberglass handle can reach from 31” to 56”, and the wheel arrangement ensures the brush bristles provide the ideal amount of agitation and pile lifting. Each side of bristles has a different degree of brush aggressiveness, so you will be prepared to handle a variety of spots on different types of carpet.
The kit includes the Carpet Roamer® Spotting Tool and one bottle of CRYSTAL SPOTTER®.
Our Brand Commitment – Making sure that every square foot of carpet adds to the beauty of a facility as its manufacturers, architects, designers, and installers intended.
