Carpet cleaning and care

Issued by: Diversey


A clean carpet can have a huge impact on how comfortable and welcoming a room feels. But without the correct care, a carpeted floor can create new problems that become a maintenance nightmare. That's why understanding the correct methods for carpet cleaning is so important.

In the Carpet cleaning and care course, Diversey will teach you how to prepare, clean, and protect carpets within a hospitality venue.

You'll also learn how to use chemicals to clean surfaces. For your safety, Diversey recommends you pay attention to proper dosage of these chemicals when cleaning. You can find these details on the Diversey product label on each item bottle. Each chemical also has a Safety Data Sheet. These are available at your workplace, or on the Diversey website. Links are available in each lesson in this course.
