Well actually we weren’t taught that in class. The instructor basically said what you did. That’s why I was asking do people really test for nylon and poly? We were told basically make sure if it’s natural or synthetic. There was a lot on the different type of fibers but not really any difference in cleaning. There was a few differences as far as nylon verses polyester etc.... but not much emphasis on having to change chemistry much.
I was taking my iicrc classes.
the knowledge will always be with me
But I can tell you I know far more than I did in those classes. Booksmart does not apply to job smart you cannot imagine the guys that try to get away you lose using the wrong cleaner you have to have a large tool box of chemicals to do the things I suggest. I have several homes that have wall-to-wall wool. I use all will save cleaners and have zero issuesbut what I'm really going to pull the carpet out and clean it in my wash Pit!!! So I can tell you one thing for sure my competitors won't!!
Some things are taught to up sale.
So if one of my customers would like me freshen up clean their den that never gets used sure. In that case I would use the acid rinse And the customer is thrilled.
But someone following iicrc to the letter well simply put aggravate the client (you mean you have to pull my rug out that's never been stepped on) seriously.
Knowledge is power use power when it's reasonable. The seriously guys is just carpet cleaning!!!
