Steamer’s Carpet Care Discusses pH Scale and Your Carpet Cleaning

Steamer’s Carpet Care is here to discuss the pH scale and how it effects your carpet cleaning. Check out today’s video to learn the difference between acid or alkaline. Customers might be surprised to learn that your professional carpet cleaners utilize the pH scale when it comes to treating your carpet.

The pH Scale plays a factor in your carpet cleaning because the technicians need to know if the soil (dirt/debris) in your carpet is acid based, (between 0-7 on the pH scale) or alkaline based (between 7-14). Understanding your soil type will help determine which type of cleaning solution your technician will use. For example, most of the soil is acid based, so your technician will use an alkaline-based cleaner. The key is to neutralize the acidity levels.
