CarpetExpert offers powerful solutions for every cleaning problem

PDIR+™ is a process we developed to help you rethink your cleaning program as a guideline to help you save money and be more environmentally friendly at the same time. PDIR+™ is an acronym that represents the four different cleaning functions: Preventative, Daily, Interim and Restorative.

The outcome of this process is to help you focus on the most effective and cost-efficient cleaning functions to get the most bang for your buck. Implementing this program in your facility will improve its appearance and should allow you to extend the life of your flooring. PDIR+™ is a more strategic approach to cleaning that focuses your efforts on the frontlines of the battle to keep your facility clean. By eliminating the over-cleaning that happens in some facilities and focusing those wasted efforts on smarter, more productive tasks, you will save time, money, labor and chemical.

How does it work?

Deep extraction causes the carpet to dry slowly due to lack of airflow through the carpet fibers that are constructed of dense loops. iCapsol encapsulating chemical breaks down and then surrounds the soil and other detergent residue from previous cleaning. It dries into a hard, non-sticky crystal, encasing the soil.

The dried crystals can easily be removed by vacuuming. The low moisture chemical process dries quickly and does not leave behind sticky detergents or chemicals that will attract dirt and result in rapid re-soiling. The result is carpet that is clean and dry quickly.
