Lots of cities, towns and also townships are currently considering computer system recycling in addition to TELEVISION recycling techniques to safeguard the atmosphere and stay clear of feasible dirt contamination. Because computer systems include several components that might launch toxic substances into the dirt, city governments are seeking option means to get rid of your old computer systems along with all your old electronic equipment. This ultimately will come to be a regular technique as even more city governments become aware of the potential risk of dumping computers and all electronic products right into a landfill. Lots of teams are additionally spreading the word about computer recycling as well as wish to locate better means to throw away the tools.

In many cities, there are neighborhood digital stores or reusing centers that will certainly take your old computer systems and also other electronic devices, dismantle them, and also put the ideal parts in the right containers for disposal. This method of disposal will quickly become a requirement as a result of the computer sectors continued updating and also making more computer systems that are newer more cost effective for the average individual to acquire. If the computer systems make it into land fills as they have in the past, it can eventually create environmental concerns that would then need to be dealt with by the federal government.

The issue of reusing computers as well as other electronics has actually come to be a hot computer subject as well as will certainly continuously be resolved by traditionalists and federal government officials in order to protect the land. Because the monitors as well as televisions have gases and also various other toxins that if placed in garbage dump sites might one way or another launch these gases right into the atmosphere too. This is a problem for all that have the ozone and also air quality in mind. The gases inside a display need to be launched securely as you finish with a fridge or air-conditioner. Without proper launch, the air could end up being loaded with these hazardous gases.

When reusing computer systems, displays as well as any printers, individuals should take the tools to a place that is certified for securely disposing of the equipment in a secure and proper method as opposed to discarding the equipment in a pile someplace and also expect the very best.

Besides that electronic devices that have been in land fills for a long time now have actually most likely already done exactly what harm they could do currently.

Printers simply require the ink cartridges as well as toner cartridges eliminated before dismantling them. Numerous stores such as Office Max and many others retail electronic shops have barrels for getting rid of your old cartridges. Numerous ink and printer toner makes that sell to shops, supply pre-paid envelopes for sending the old cartridges back for reusing. These techniques have actually been around for quite a while currently. This has minimized ink cartridges and toner cartridges from being pull in land fills. If every person would learn how to recycle computer system and also digital equipment, then it will certainly save millions of dollars for future clean up of these garbage dump sites.

Recycling old computers to save the environment is needed and every person has an obligation to follow this method to protect and maintain land as well as air top quality. With the more recent computer system systems becoming available for a cost effective cost as well as the method innovation alters daily, people are going to require new computers and many others digital devices to keep up with the transforming world.

Carpet Care Program

Directly related to beauty and durability of your facilities carpeting is the care and maintenance you provide.  With regular cleaning, you can maintain your carpeting at an excellent level of appearance.  This is one of its great advantages.  However, no carpet can be maintenance free.

The challenge you face is how do you keep it looking it’s best despite traffic and soil.  The Kleenco Carpet Care Program will help you achieve your goal of increasing the life of your carpet and protecting the investment you have made.

 

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE

 

ENTRANCE MATS

 One of the most neglected areas in caring for carpeting is routine maintenance.  Affecting the life and appearance of your carpets is the type and quality of your routine maintenance procedures.  Most soil collects within the first few feet of the entry to your building.  Much of this soil has an abrasive content that can be very damaging once it gathers in your carpet.  A good carpet program will trap this damaging soil with the right style of entry mat.  If possible, place your mat before the carpet area.  Maintain the mat by periodic vacuuming, and cleaning.  Consult your Kleenco Distributor for advice on the best mat for your application.

 VACUUMING

Most authorities consider vacuuming to be the most vital procedure in carpet care.  Regular vacuuming will remove damaging soil and restore the pile.  The longer soil stays in the carpet the more difficult it becomes to remove.

The key to effective vacuuming is knowing how often to vacuum.  This will vary from facility to facility but the following applies to all buildings.  In heavy traffic areas frequent vacuuming is required.  With daily vacuuming being the preferred procedure.  The entire carpet is vacuumed at least weekly regardless of the traffic.

The most effective vacuums are those powered by dual motors and equipped with a beater brush.  Maintain your vacuums efficiency by keeping bags, filters and recovery tanks clean.

Slow forward and backward motion is the best vacuuming method.  This allows the vacuum suction to pickup the soil loosened by the beater brush.  Spend more time in heavy traffic areas where the soil accumulates.

 

RESTORATIVE CLEANING PROCEDURES

 

EXTRACTION CLEANING

You should schedule your carpeting for restorative maintenance at least annually.  Schedule twice a year restorative cleaning in cases of extreme traffic or damaging soil.

Restorative cleaning involves the use of hot water extraction equipment (also known as “steam cleaning”).  This method employs pressure pumps to apply the cleaning solution, and high power vacuums to remove the soil in the one pass.

Today there is a wide variety of effective extraction cleaning equipment on the market.  Machine types include heavy duty truck mount, convenient portables and easy to use self-contained extractors.  Highly recommended, the extraction cleaning system can pull a large percentage of soil and detergent buildup out of the carpet.  As a result, carpets keep their clean appearance for a longer time.

 The Procedure

  1. Thoroughly vacuum and pre-spot carpet.
  2. Pre-spray heavily soiled areas and traffic lanes with Kleenco’s Kleen Lane.  Allow solution to work 5 to 10 minutes before extraction.
  3. Following label instructions dilute the preferred extraction detergent (Carpet Brite, Formula “K” or Challenge) with warm water in the extractor’s solution tank.
  4. Extract following machine instructions.
  5. Use Kleenco’s Foam Down when encountering excess foaming.  For best results follow label instructions.
  6. Allow carpet to dry (1 to 12 hours) before allowing traffic.

 

 Chemicals Used
KLEEN LANE

A special lane pretreatment designed to dissolve stubborn soils such as grease, oil and heavy traffic.  Safe for use on new generation carpets.

CARPET BRITE

A powerful, low foaming, low alkaline cleaner designed for use in self contained, portable extraction units and spin bonnet carpet cleaning.  Formulated to remove a wide range of soils and stains promoting cleaner, brighter carpets.  Special additives keep carpets looking clean longer.

LIQUID FORMULA “K”

Cleaning Tips

  1. Placing foil under the legs of furniture will prevent dye bleeding and rust stains from furniture legs.
  2. If streaking or uneven cleaning occurs, unplug the jets of the machine spray nozzles.
  3. To remove excess liquid and speed drying time, make a second cleaning pass using only the vacuum for pickup.

Spin Bonnet Cleaning

As in any carpet cleaning procedure, thorough vacuuming before cleaning is imperative.  If needed, apply a traffic lane conditioner such as Kleenco’s Kleen Lane 5 to 10 minutes before spin cleaning.  (For removal of stubborn stains, refer to the stain remover chart, which is part of this brochure.)

  1. Mix cleaning solution (Kleenco’s Carpet Brite) according to label instructions, with warm water.

Lightly Soiled Carpets:  Using a pressure type sprayer, apply diluted cleaning solution to spin bonnet and carpet.  Apply additional solution as needed during spin cleaning by spraying carpet.  One gallon of solution will cover about 300 to 400 square feet of carpet.

Traffic Lanes and Heavy Soil:  Presoak bonnet in cleaning solution, wring out tightly.

  1. Properly position bonnet under conventional buffing equipment (175-300 rpm).  Work in an overlapping pattern.
  2. Turn and change bonnet as it becomes soiled.  Before cleaning heavy soil, presoak your bonnet in cleaning solution.  Replace cleaning solution as it becomes visibly dirty.  Do not allow bonnet to dry during spin cleaning.  It may damage carpet.  Allow carpets to dry (approximately 1 to 3 hours) before permitting traffic.

 

Dry Foam Shampooing

Dry foam carpet shampooing is a minimum-moisture system used on virtually any carpet, natural or synthetic.  This simple method of shampooing uses equipment that converts shampoo solution into a low moisture foam.  The machine brushes the foam through the carpet fibers to loosen soil.

  1. Thoroughly vacuum to remove particle soil buildup.
  2. In heavy soil situations, apply a pre-conditioner such as Kleenco’s Kleen Lane to emulsify stubborn soils.
  3. Apply the dry-foam shampoo Kleenco’s Sahara Dry using the proper equipment.  Once the carpet is dry (1 to 3 hours) vacuum the carpet to remove remaining detergent and soil.
 Chemicals Used

SALVAGE CLEANING PROCEDURES

 

Precondition/Rotary Shampoo/Extract Cleaning

 Salvage cleaning is clearly the most aggressive carpet cleaning technique.  A procedure reserved for carpets with severe soiling problems or suffering from infrequent maintenance.

This technique is actually a combination of preconditioning, rotary shampooing and hot water extraction cleaning.  This method leaves the carpet cleaner than any other method.

The rotary action of the shampoo machine and the chemical action of the shampoo and preconditioning agent combine to loosen and emulsify soils.  The extraction step flushes out the detergent solution as well as deeply imbedded soils.

ROTARY SHAMPOOING

  1. Mix Kleenco’s Concentrated Carpet & Upholstery Shampoo according to label instructions.  Add this diluted solution to the shampoo tank.
  2. Shampoo carpet in an overlapping pattern, applying a minimum amount of shampoo solution. (One gallon of diluted solution should cover 100 – 500 square feet).  Release shampoo with the first pass only.  Then work shampoo into the carpet fibers using a circular motion.  Let the brush do the work.

 

EXTRACTION RINSE

  1. Using your extraction machine filled with clear water extract the carpet.  One rinse pass followed by two vacuum passes.  Use Kleenco’s Foam Down when encountering excess foaming.
  2. Allow carpet to dry (1 to 12 hours) before allowing traffic.

POST-CLEANING CARPET TREATMENTS

The use of post cleaning treatments can significantly improve your carpet’s long term performance.

 Soil and Stain Protective Treatments

There are three types of soil retardants:  Fluorochemical (Retain with Dupont Teflon) Silicone.  (Carpet Tec) and Polymeric (Contractor’s Soil-Guard).  Fluorochemicals resist grease and oil better than the other types.

Use silicone base protectors to treat carpets that are prone to water base stains.  Do not use silicones on new generation or “stain resist” carpeting.

Strictly designed to enhance soil resistance polymeric treatments have no value in preventing water or oil based staining.

When applying these treatments always follow label instructions.  The label contains coverage information that will aid you in proper application of the treatment.  Apply all types of carpet treatment only after spot removal and carpet cleaning.  For best coverage use a pump up type pressure sprayer.  Apply a touch-up treatment after each restorative cleaning procedure.

 

ANTISTATIC TREATMENTS

 Such as Kleenco’s Stat-Zap will end static shock when sprayed onto carpets after cleaning.  For best results apply antistatic treatments to freshly cleaned carpets using a pump up type sprayer for large areas.  Treat smaller areas using a trigger sprayer.  Apply a very fine mist lightly but thoroughly to entire carpeted area.

ODOR TREATMENTS

For successful treatment of odors apply a malodor solution such as Kleenco’s Pleascent directly to the original source of the odor.  To accomplish this, use a pump-up type sprayer to spray a light mist of the solution onto the carpet then brush it into the carpet.  To solve severe odor problems, inject Kleenco’s Kitty Scram or Maxim into the carpet backing with a hypodermic needle.  You can also deodorize carpets by adding either of these products in the proper amount to your carpet cleaning solution (see label for dilution instructions).

 Chemicals Used
RETAIN WB

 Highly effective in reducing static shock prevalent during periods of low humidity.  Formulated for use on both natural and synthetic fibers.

PLEASCENT

Designed to remove unpleasant carpet odors.  Compatible with all Kleenco carpet cleaning solutions.

KITTY SCRAM or MAXIM

Malodor neutralizer.  Active against all common odor sources including animal urine, excrement, vomit and death odors.

Stain Removal

Spot removal is essential in maintaining the appearance of your carpet.  Giving quick attention to spills will make spot removal easier and reduce damage to the carpet.  Kleenco’s Effortless will work to remove most common spots.  Treat unusual stains with Kleenco’s Professional Spot Remover Kit.

 Six Steps to Successful Stain Removal

  1. Remove the spot or stain as soon as possible.  Allowing the stain to set makes it more difficult to remove.
  2. Try to identify the type of stain whenever possible.  The composition of the stain will determine what method and which spotter to use.
  3. Pretest any spot removal agent in an inconspicuous area to make certain the solution will not damage the fiber or the dye.
  4. For fresh stains caused by spills of liquids remove as much liquid as possible.  Blotting with clean white absorbent toweling is the preferred method.  For stains caused by spills of solid materials, gently remove the soil with a spoon, or rubber spatula.  Then use the appropriate spot remover.
  5. Avoid spreading stains by working from the outside edge of the stain towards the center.  Avoid overwetting the carpet by applying too much stain remover.  Always blot the stain, do not rub.  Finish by rinsing with water to remove excess spotter and residue.
  6. Complete stain removal by applying a one-half inch layer of white paper towels to the affected area.  Weigh the towels down with a flat, heavy object.  Continue to change paper towels as needed.
