What is MilliCare? A carpet maintenance franchise network with more than 15-years experience providing services for commercial & hospitality clients. Our cleaning process utilizes MilliCares unique absorbent polymers, we also do hot water extraction on carpets that require restorative cleaning. We sell SERVICES! - not products True Dry Carpet Cleaning Process! Developed by Milliken Carpets to clean and maintain all types of carpets no matter the brand!
–MilliCares dry-cleaning method is : Non-toxic No slip and fall risk No facility downtime No water introduced into facility Non abrasive to carpet fiber or backing (gentle) Removes odors from carpet, no wet-carpet smell Effective on all commercial carpet types and constructions Removes soil and particulates rather than moving them around. Removes surface fungi, allergens and bacteria from carpet. Works with HVAC to reduce airborne particulates and VOCs. No solvent carriers or detergent residues to accelerate carpet re- soiling and emit VOCs into facility. MilliCare High Performance Cleaning
Adsorbent Polymer Powder Data Adsorbent polymer particle adsorbs 80-95% of its own weight in soil and particulates. Inorganic substrate.Adsorbent polymer particle adsorbs 80-95% of its own weight in soil and particulates. Inorganic substrate.

Wet Methods Wet ExtractionSpin Bonnet Dry Methods MilliCare Competitive Dry FNo carriers or detergent residues hence no detergent or carrier related re-soiling FSoil is removed rather than moved around. This protects fibers from scarring and dulling and results in best long term appearance retention. FNo optical brighteners FRemoves smoke odors FNo down-time FNo water-related bacterial or fungal allergens fostered FDemonstrated IAQ improvements through removal of dust mite and other particulate allergens. FNo Volatile Organic Compounds FNon-toxic, environmentally safe FApproved for ALL fiber types FWater-based - very low moisture. FExclusive adsorbent chemistry FNo limits on frequency of use. FHydrocarbon solvent or cellulosic based FHigh frequency cleaning NOT desirable FNon-absorbent medium FSolvent residues and optical brighteners can dull fiber and cause yellowing. FRe-soiling FFiber scarring from soil not retrieved FCleaner is also hard to retrieve FPossible solvent carrier related VOCs FLarger particles provide less penetration FFine airborne particles are left behind with some systems (10:1 difference) FLow coverage rates. FRetrieved materials are slow to decompose in landfill. FOver-wetting can occur FLong dry times FWet methods promote growth of bacterial and fungal colonies. Odors, allergens accumulate and IAQ suffers. FWick-back of soil means that initial good appearance following clean is deceptive FOptical brighteners may cause yellowing FDetergent residue dulls fiber and promotes re-soiling. FMust clean larger areas for uniform appearance - streaking possible FFiber scarring danger from limits on acceptable frequencies. FRepeated use of excess water can gradually penetrate seams between modular tiles damaging adhesive and loosening tiles. FWater, detergent FHigh frequency cleaning not desirable FTends to redistribute rather than remove soil. FProvides surface cleaning only requiring periodic wet extraction. FPile distortion & yarn de-twist / unravel. Pile matting and crushing. FLeaves streaks and swirl marks. FRe-soiling results from detergent residues. FDetergent residue dulls fiber. FUneven detergent application FRequires pre-vacuum FFiber scarring from soil & method FNot safe for use on all fibers FWet methods promote growth of bacterial and fungal colonies.

The Carpet and Rug Institute formally recognizes and endorses MilliCares Adsorbent Polymer Powder Cleaning System as a deep carpet cleaning method! Industry Endorsement
Are You Concerned About MOLD! INDOOR AIR QUALITY – WET CARPET SMELL!
Whats Wrong With this Picture! Public Safety? Trip & Fall Liability? Overwetting MOLD?
CRI - Carpet and Rug Institute Abnormally high levels of mold spores are most often associated with water damage, water intrusion, failed HVAC systems, or non-existent or ineffective cleaning systems. Carpet that is maintained in a clean, dry condition does not support mold growth. Clean and dry = no mold. CRI recognizes and endorses MilliCares Cleaning System as an effective carpet deep-cleaning method. CDC - Centers for Disease Control and Prevention Recommends removing or replacing previously soaked carpets and upholstery. Quotes - the Indoor Environment
Indoor Air Quality (IAQ) – MilliCares Contributions –Removes particulates (soil, spores, allergens and bacteria) from carpet rather than moving them around –Works with HVAC to effectively reduce airborne particulates, bio-aerosols, and VOCs. –No water introduced into carpet to promote biological activity. No wet-carpet smell. –Removes odors from carpet –No VOC-emitting solvent carriers and fragrances
-The battle rages on, which is better wet or dry cleaning? -Consider this…with all the studies and news headlines about mold and its associated problems. Facility & Resident managers are now considering new ways to improve indoor air quality and safeguard against this problem. - The MilliCare DRY carpet cleaning process, is a great way to start. Carpets must be cleaned on a regular basis, its the kitchen sink on your facility floor that collects and holds all the dust and dirt. Daily vacuuming is recommended, programmed maintenance will do the rest.
