This one was destined for the trash can: our favorites! Of course there are limits, but seldom do our management companies ever need to replace a carpet anymore prior to it’s expected life.
Why replace when you can “TrinityRenew” your floors! Picture one of several in the process of renewal cleaning
Removing the soiling a layer at a time and ‘hiding’ damaged fiber (scratches) as able by filling them in with an encapsulant fiber guard.
Starting to prepare the carpet for cleaning…
Salvage work often requires a lot of steps and time; almost always saving the landlord thousands of dollars in replacement cost, lost rental time, etc.
Removal of the first layers
The Trinity machines often bring soil up from down deep in the fibers rather than washing them deeper from over-wetting, our final steps of drying, grooming and vacuuming again removes those previously embedded soils (mostly insoluble).
Above: after soil removal and visually improving the abraded (scratched) fiber.
As long as dyes are not set (chemically, heat, time), they can often be removed without replacing the damaged section of carpet. The same with cigarette or other burns.
Above is the entry into the next bedroom before
Drying, grooming and vacuuming done! Bleach stains explained below.
Above is the same entry after (the bleached areas could be repaired by cutting them out/inserting a matching piece of carpet, but not worth it to the owners in this case/situation)
Like the above bedroom, this required a lot of hands/knees work to prep the carpet for salvage cleaning
After drying, grooming and vacuuming. This apartment was rented shortly after we finished. Happy carpet cleaner, happy landlord, happy new resident.
And yes, the new residents are able to move in!
