We’ve covered lots of other topics we’d love for you to go back and check out talking about our services.
[00:48] Patching, commercial cleaning, stretching, carpet, equipment. Um, why are we affordable or pricing to size? What is the dirties carpet we’ve ever seen? Is, is your carpet the dirties? We’ve ever seen, um, do we have to stay here the whole time? How long will it take to dry? What can I expect? What are the process like? What can I do with a spot in my new carpet? How do I maintain it? What’s the best vacuum? What, how often should I vacuum? These are all question we’ve covered in previous episode. I’d love for you to go back and check out the information on that. Right now we’re gonna jump right into. Why does the heat of the water matter? This is a great question. I think is really one of the main differences between what we can do as with carpet cleaning and what you can do in your own home.
[01:29] Now. Unless you take and boil the water on your stove, typically you’re going to be dealing with tap water temperature, which typically runs about 100 to 105 degrees. It’s not enough to burn you, but it is nice and warm. Um, and a lot of people don’t even use a warm tap water. They just use cool tap water or they get the hot tap water. They take it over to the little Bissell, they pour the water into the machine and then it instantly, the machine absorbs a good chunk of that heat and into the machine itself. And so we, what we do is we run 200 degree to 220 degree water out of the truck. Now we don’t want to bring in live steam into your home. And so the heat of the water on a short question, why does the heat of the water matter?
[02:07] Because everything dissolves into solution faster. The hotter the water is, we are complete carpet, carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998. I think a good example I’ve given all of our customers during those years is um, washing your dishes. I think it’s a really good connectable example. Do you go into to wash your dishes and you have no heat and let’s say you’re just doing your walking or just with cold water only and you try to wash your dishes with the cold water, it takes almost two to three times as much time to clean it. You’ll have to use a lot more soap, uh, because you’re having to cut the greases, you’re having to really scrub the pans and try to scrub it through because even if you soak in cold water, it doesn’t have the same effect of that hot water does. Hot Water is the universal solvent and the hotter the water is, the faster that things will, that faster things will dissolve and get into solution.
[02:54] Um, for example, take butter on a plate. You can take a smear plate covered completely and butter and walk over and put cold water on and then put the plate under the cold water to rinse it off. Uh, you can sit there for a very long time. Eventually, some of it will kind of just by the force of the water running across, it will kind of push some of the butter off, but really the old have a layer of butter on that plate. Um, as long as you’ve, as long as you want to leave, the water running is still going to have some butter there. But you can take your dial in, just move it over to will you get even as hot as tap water to use hot tap water and all of a sudden you can just sit there and almost instantly soon as that hot water hits that plate, you’ll see the butter just instantly turned them melt and it will then go into solution and rinse right off your plate.
[03:33] I’m a really great example we can have from a our science years in high school or in college. One of the things that we used to do, um, and I’m sure everyone has had this experience, a Carpet Cleaning Tulsa since 1998. We can go back all in a way back machine back into the nineties and their high school and going through and getting a different science experiments in chemistry. Um, and one of the things that we did, um, uh, is that we’d take cold water and we poured sugar into the cold water and then we stirred it. And as you pour the sugar into this cold water, you saw the sugar fall, Kinda like snowflakes down through the water, into the beaker. Then we took one of our beaker spinner spinner is going to kind of swirl it around and we swirled it and the sugar just kind of spins around on the bottom.
[04:16] I think a lot of us have done this with ice tea will take it and pour sugar into it and you see the ice tea and see all the sugar go down and fall a big lump at the bottom of the company. You’re thinking, okay, great, and so you grab a spoon and you start just furiously trying to mix that up and you just bend time. Mixed, mixed, mixed, mixed, mixed, mixed, mixed, mixed, mixed. Now if you take the same sugar and uh, same liquid, but now we’ve got hot tea so it’s still tea and it’s still sugar, but you’ve now got hot tea and you started to pour that sugar into that hot tea. Most of the time if you could see it from the side, most of that sugar is already dissolved into that hot boiling tea before it ever hits the bottom.
[04:50] Because I’m heat increases. Your dissolving, you’re dissolving rating increases your dilution rate and increases your cleaning power of the water, a creek it, the hotter the water, the more of a universal solvent. It becomes carpet cleaning Tulsa since 1998. Uh, I have seen this on, on every job that I’ve done, all of our current machines always have hot water. There’s, there’s no off switch for it is just as always good and hot. Men Don’t have to, we don’t have to worry about wherever going to do a job in properly. But of the original machine that we used are actually propane fired. And so if we ran out of propane on a job, we had no heat and so we’d actually have to clean with cold water and it takes about three times as long to clean a house with cold water than it does with hot water.
[05:32] Now it can be done Carpet Cleaning Tulsa. You just have to use about three times as much chemical to because you’ll clean it. Then you use the chemical, the chemical has to break down all the dirt in the carpet. The chemical has to mix of all this stuff. And then the cold water just rinses it out and it takes longer because it takes a longer time for that water to rinse through that carpet, pulling all of this stuff out of the carpet now, um, as far as the heat in the machine and the systems that we use, we always try maintain hot water. The reason that we don’t use live steam, and this is a question that a lot of people ask and they wonder, does the cleaning, does the heat of the water main that we’re going to have a. is it going to sanitize the carpet?
[06:09] And it does not sanitize the carpet [inaudible] we do not keep the carpet hot long enough to be able to kill bacteria. And that process takes 30 to 60 seconds of heat getting in there to really knock it out. And we don’t want to put that much focus and time into it because it would destroy the carpet. Um, so. And we also don’t want to have live steam coming out of our won because two things, one, it will just immediately go into the air. It’ll be like hitting the [inaudible] button on your, your, um, your ironing and all that steam just goes, just floats right into the atmosphere and just gets absorbed into the air around as opposed to actually getting into the carpet. So we need that carpet water to actually be about 160 270 degrees. It starts at about 200 out of the truck by the time it gets through all the hoses inside, it’s dropped down about 10, 10 to 30 degrees just depending on the situation Carpet Cleaning Tulsa.
[06:55] And so we don’t want to turn your house into a sauna. We want to get your carpets cleaned. And so we just purely rinse out all of the stuff that is in the carpet and that extra heat helps to speed up that carpet cleaning process. And also does a secondary thing. The heat of the water can do a secondary thing. Most people don’t even think about Carpet Cleaning Tulsa since 1998. We have found that the warmer water that we put through with the more suction we have helps it to dry faster, but if we can keep that water hot compared to cold water, the carpets we’ll dry lot faster, [inaudible] they start a hot to begin with and so it’s going to evaporate quicker and we do keep the, we don’t want to get it too hot because if we’re getting a lot of steam going into the air and we don’t want to fill the air up with a lot of unnecessary moisture, um, so that there’s less moisture to dry up into the air.
[07:40] We want to keep all of the moisture down and sucked out of the Florida. Leave the air nice and dry so that he can absorb absorbent a, grab all of the moisture that comes out of the carpet as we do our cleaning. Thank you for joining us on episode 100.
