Horrible Nasty Gooey Restaurant Carpet Coming Clean

There is a good reason that people take their shoes off before walking on carpets in private homes in many parts of the world. That doesn't happen in public places, so carpets get really dirty just from foot traffic. In a restaurant, you have spilled food and drink and servers tracking grease out from the kitchen. Mike Pailliotet is a professional cleaner with high-pressure steam equipment. Here he shows us what a difference a good cleaning makes in an unnamed diner's carpet. So why do restaurants ever have carpet? So the customers don't slip and fall on bare floors. That said, you have to wonder how long this particular restaurant let their carpets go between cleanings. -via Boing Boing

I have a client that owns a national carpet and floor cleaning franchise. They guarantee your commercial floor will never get this bad. Their secret? Cleaning it regularly. The diner owner has been completely negligent by not getting his carpets cleaned at least once per month.

As good as it looks in the video. The real test is seeing if it pulled out the deep dirt. If the stains come back in a week (or after a water spill) it did not.

I worked for a caterer in college and the kitchen floors were so filthy that one could peel the mold and corruption off of the concrete like a mat. We stood on elevated palettes to work. Twice a year they had a hydroblaster come in to clean the floors but after a month one couldn't tell the difference. They had carpeting too but I don't recall that ever being cleaned.
