Carpet and Rug - Vital Oxide

Carpet and Rug

Spills and spots are inevitable, but they do not have to be permanent. The right cleaning solutions can help keep your facility's carpet looking its best between professional deep cleanings. To identify superior performing cleaning products, CRI has developed the Seal of Approval program.

CRI worked with an independent laboratory to test off-the-shelf spot removers and pre-spray solutions. Of the 25 products tested,

only four cleaned a soiled carpet sample better than water. Some caused the cleaned carpet area to

re-soil faster and — worse — some products damaged the carpet's color and texture.

 

 

 

 

Dilution Ratio:

Use Vital Oxide in a 5:1 dilution ration for pre-spray carpet sanitization.
