Preserve Your Facility’s Assets With Common Sense Carpet Care

Carpet is an important part of any facility’s interior design, affecting the look and feel of the space as well as occupant wellness and comfort. It can be a challenge for both facility managers and building service contractors to develop safe, sustainable carpet cleaning programs at a profit. This is why Whittaker has developed a comprehensive carpet care system that provides a consistently clean carpet appearance level, increases production rates, reduces employee turnover, and creates minimal facility disruption with 20-30 minute dry times. 

We developed our Smart Care ® System using the Common Sense Carpet Care℠ approach: improve carpet appearance levels with sustainable chemistry, retain employees with easy training and safe work practices, and increase carpet lifecycle with mill-recommended low-moisture pile lifting.

Common Sense Carpet Care℠

A comprehensive carpet maintenance plan will help your carpet last longer and allow your operations to be more cost effective. Whittaker’s integrated four-step process includes:

  • Preventive Maintenance – walk-off and protective mats
  • Daily Maintenance – frequent vacuuming of high traffic areas and treatment of spots and stains with our CARPET ROAMER® and CRYSTAL SPOTTER®
  • Interim Maintenance – use our triple counter-rotating cylindrical brushes to agitate carpet fibers, lift the pile, and encapsulate embedded soil
  • Restorative Cleaning – recommended hot water extraction every 12-24 months or as needed

Interim maintenance performed with Whittaker’s low-moisture encapsulation technology keeps carpet looking clean between restorative extractions. Smart Care® machines agitate and pile lift at the same time, helping remove deeply embedded soils without damaging carpet fibers and at third-party verified production rates faster than conventional bonnet cleaning methods. There is no complex training needed to introduce the system to employees; frontline workers can be trained in minutes on how to use the Smart Care® System.

Carpet Warranties and Industry Approvals

Unlike some other cleaning methods, Smart Care® meets the warranty requirements for all leading carpet mills.

Our products are recognized as safe and effective by both carpet manufacturers and industry standard-setting groups including The Carpet and Rug Institute, WoolSafe®, Green Seal, and Clean Seal®.

Restorative Cleaning with Smart Care®

In some cases, the Smart Care® System can even restore carpets that have not been properly maintained. Our Deep Cleaning Chemistry CRYSTAL EXTRACT® and CRYSTAL® QUICK RESTORE can both be used as a pre-spray for hot water extraction, and CQR can act as an alternative to extraction when fast dry times and low disruption are needed.
