Spring and summer, the busiest times of the year for the carpet cleaning industry, are right around the corner. And as carpet-cleaning service ramps up, one issue all carpet cleaning professionals must address is how to dispose of wastewater.
According to the Ohio Environmental Protection Agency, wastewater can contain bacteria, body fluids, human and animal waste, chemical compounds, oil, grease, smoke, airborne pollutants, detergents, solvents, and more—all potentially hazardous substances to humans and the environment. As a result, properly disposing of wastewater is critical and most states have a variety of rules and regulations on how it must be handled. In fact, failure to properly dispose of wastewater can result in significant fines for the carpet-cleaning technician and sometimes for the building owner.
