PREVENTIVE   MAINTENANCE.—   Mainte- nance  time  and  costs  can  be  extremely  reduced  and  a good  overall  appearance  of  carpets  can  be  maintained by eliminating soil and dirt before they are tracked into staterooms.  Mats  placed  outside  on  inside  entryways will eliminate most of the soil from shoes before it can be  tracked  onto  the  carpet.  Critical  high  traffic  areas, such as hallways and entrance doors, take the brunt of soiling. Frequent  vacuuming  and  preventive maintenance in the high traffic areas will reduce the amount of time required to maintain these areas. MAINTENANCE PROGRAM.—  Carpet maintenance is directly related to the amount of traffic in the area. .  Daily.  Clean  with  vacuum  cleaner  along  all traffic patterns. It is extremely important to keep carpets as free as possible of hose, sandy, gritty soil. Remove spots and stains as they occur, if possible. . Weekly. The pile brush combines a brushing and vacuuming action. It should be used at least once a week in addition to the regular cleaning and vacuuming. proper shampooing procedures require the use of a neutral,  synthetic  detergent  that  is  specifically  designed for cleaning carpets. First, pile brush the carpet against the lay of the pile, then vacuum the carpet thoroughly. During the actual shampooing, all furniture should be removed. Shampoo the carpet in circular strokes, with  a  uniform  application  of  suds. After  the shampooing,   spot-clean   any   stains   that   remain. Following this, give the pile a finishing operation by hand-napping. Normally, drying takes 6 to 8 hours. In areas of traffic that must be used before the carpet is thoroughly dry, nonstaining paper should be placed on the carpet to prevent tracking soil onto the fabric. As a final  operation,  vacuum  the  carpet  on  the  following  day to remove any fluff and lint loosened by the shampooing process. SPOTTING   PROGRAM.—   A separate spot-cleaning  program  should  be  established,  especially for  areas  where  accidental  spillage  occurs  at  a  higher rate. There   are   many   excellent   commercial spot-removal  kits  available  for  this  type  of  use.  Spills should be attended to as soon as possible and never left for more than a day. DUST AND DIRT.— Carpets are cleaned primarily to remove soil, to try to restore the original color, to lengthen wear life by the removal of gritty soil, and to discourage mildew and other unsightly damages. A good carpet care program will save time and money. LOW  MAINTENANCE.—  Carpeting  requires only   about   half   as   much   time   to   maintain   as hard-surfaced   decks. Demonstrations   should   be obtained  from  professional  carpet  cleaners  before starting  your  own  carpet  care  program. Control of Linen, Cleaning Equipment and Supplies Aside from being expensive, supplies afloat are limited. A separate record should be kept for linen, cleaning  equipment,  and  consumable  supplies.  You should set up a high limit and a low limit for all items used  to  help  determine  your  requirements. BACHELOR  QUARTERS  ASHORE BQs are established to provide essential lodging for eligible personnel. Complete guidance for management of BQs ashore is given in the  Navy  Bachelor  Quarters Manual,  NAVPERS  15606.  The  Chief  of  Naval Operations  (CNO)  has  assigned  the  responsibility  for providing administrative and technical guidance for operating Navy BQs to the Bureau of Naval Personnel (BUPERS).  To  discharge  this  responsibility,  BUPERS issues  directives  and  requires  financial  reports  for  BQ billeting funds. It  also  provides  technical  aid  and training  for  BQ  officers  and  operating  personnel.  The Navy’s  commitment  to  operating  effective  BQs  ashore is  summarized  next. The Navy has an obligation to provide all authorized residents  of  Navy  BQs  with  a  healthful  living environment   located   in   clean,   well-maintained, comfortable   facilities. To   meet   this   obligation, sufficient resources, including personnel, facilities, and funds, will be committed. Further, Navy BQs will be operated in a reamer that will provide the residents with as much privacy, security, and freedom as possible. Navy  BQs  must  be  managed  in  a  manner  that conserves  resources  and  protects  the  Navy’s  investment in  facilities  and  furniture,  fixtures,  and  equipment (FF&E). To provide the level of professional management necessary for Navy BQs, a trained core of managers is required. These managers are drawn primarily from the MS rating. As an MS, you maybe assigned duty in a BQ ashore in either bachelor officers’ quarters (BOQs) or bachelor enlisted  quarters  (BEQs).  Wherever  or  whatever  your specific  duties,  to  perform  them  well,  you  must  be 10-5
