This Museum Enjoys Faster, More Efficient Carpet Care with CFR

Located at the site of The 1904 World’s Fair, this famous Art Museum is one of the principal art institutions in the United States. Originally constructed as the Palace of Fine Arts for the World’s Fair, the Museum’s collection contains more than 30,000 pieces of art, from antiquity to the present, including works from Monet, Picasso, Van Gogh, and Matisse.

Like most public facilities, the museum was challenged with very tight timeframes between daily carpet cleaning cycles and opening to the public. The short timeframes failed to allow enough time for proper carpet maintenance, and the condition of the carpet throughout the facility was suffering. The Art Museum was finding that interim methods essentially only served to keep the carpet “evenly dirty” by “feathering” dirty traffic lanes into the surrounding cleaner areas so they (the traffic lanes) weren’t as noticeable.

On the flip side, however, they were finding that traditional carpet extractors let their carpets wet and galleries closed for too long. Additionally, they had to be aware and concerned about introducing humidity into the environment, due to the sensitive nature of the antiquities.

Purchasing a Cascade 20, along with CFR Chemical, they found CFR to be the answer they were looking for. The Cascade 20’s cleaning effectiveness and quick drying times drove the decision to purchase. The unit will be used for carpet and upholstery care throughout the Museum.
