Low Moisture Encapsulation
As a CRI Approved Service Provider, we are not only focused on the use of environmentally safe and “green” cleaning solutions, but the use of the best vacuums, extractors, and cleaning equipment to effectively clean carpet. One of the primary cleaning methods we utilize is a low moisture encapsulation cleaning method made by Whittaker. Their SmartCare system is not only approved by the Carpet & Rug Institute for cleaning but their CRYSTAL cleaning chemistry is Green Seal Certified. The advantages of using a low moisture cleaning method in your office environment is the use of less water. This is ideal for those concerned about water conservation.
