SOLID FAST FACTS REGARDING AIRPORTS:
What are the benefits of dry carpet cleaning?
No downtime, uses less water, reduces the risk of moisture, re-soiling, and slips and falls.
Could you also perform Hot Water Extraction (HWE)?
SOLID can meet any manufacturer guidelines and warranty recommendations. HWE can be part of a customized Consolidated Care Plan to extend the life of a facility’s carpet.
Do you work at 12-2 am/3rd shift for the 6 am arrivals – hard & soft surfaces?
Yes, we will work whenever and wherever is needed.
Do you use wet floor signs and other safety precautions?
Yes, and we are happy to follow your airport standards and recommendations.
How do your services align with the manufacturer’s guidelines?
SOLID aligns with all manufacturer’s guidelines, recommended methodologies, and frequencies.
How long will the surfaces last if we use your services?
The surface appearance will vary depending on foot traffic, daily cleaning schedule, and frequency of SOLID’s service schedule. SOLID will provide you with several frequency options based on manufacturer recommendations, over 25+ years of in-field experience, and of course the client's expectations. All of these are discussed during the collaborative build stage that allows us to work together to provide you with expert information in order to make the very best informed decision for your facility and passengers.
Different surfaces have different life cycles and lengths of life, but regardless of what surface we’re working with we’ll use the best products, equipment, and processes to care for those surfaces while following your manufacturer’s guidelines and recommendations.
