MUKILTEO, WA — More and more cleaning professionals now include cleaning and caring for their customer’s carpets in their services, which leaves many cleaning services playing catch up, dealing with an area in which their staff may not have extensive training, according to a press release.

"The best way cleaning professionals can learn how to care for carpets is to take one of the many reputable courses available from many distributers and organizations," said Joe Versluis, national sales manager for U.S. Products.

According to the release, U.S. Products offers the following true/false questions that can help cleaning professionals test their knowledge in this crucial area:

  1. There are spotters now available on the market that can adequately remove just about all types of spots on carpeting.
  2. When treating a spot, cleaning professionals should start in the center of the spot and work toward the edge.
  3. It is always a good idea to cover a treated spot with a clean, white cloth.
  4. There are two ways to clean carpets using the bonnet method: spray and immersion cleaning.
  5. Carpet shampooing has been replaced by encapsulation cleaning.
