Hallway Carpet Rescue [Photo Contest]
This issue’s photo contest winner is Andre Brown of Brown’s Professional Carpet Care in Landover, Md. for their hallway carpet rescue after a different cleaner declared the job hopeless. His company will receive a Visa gift card worth $250.
The customer told us the last cleaner had left after seeing the carpet and saying it could not be cleaned. After our screening process, we arrived and inspected the oil-based stains, tested, and found they were removable. Once we completed a thorough pre-vacuuming with a CRI Silver-certified vacuum, we applied a 12.5-ph cleaning solution followed by a 15-minute dwell with counter-rotating brush mechanical agitation. While watching the magic happen, the client’s mouth dropped. We extracted with a 5.5-ph rinse, speed dried, and satisfied the client with amazing results.
For an opportunity to win a gift card worth $250, send your images and a brief 100-word description on how you obtained your results to Amanda Hosey, managing editor, at [email protected], or submit via Facebook Messenger at www.facebook.com/cleanfax. Contest rules available by request.

Counter-rotating brush (CRBs) machines are still fairly new in the long history of carpet cleaning. In our annual Carpet Cleaning Benchmarking Surveys as well as in interviews and discussions with carpet cleaners, they are consistently named a favorite modern industry innovation.
