Helpful bits of Information Pros should always remember about Carpet Details:
For really nasty carpet, just go a little heavier dose (i.e. 6 oz per gallon, 8 scoops in 1/4 ratio hydroforce) and let it dwell at least 10 minutes.
Don't "boost" with any other chemicals, or pretreat stains with other chemicals. Carpet Details has a lot of oxygen in it already.
Don't acid rinse, just use plain water to rinse with.
Feel free to add a fragrance if needed, but better to spray a fragrance after the cleaning if you need immediate deodorizing.
It works incredibly well on pet stains by drying out urine so the vacuum can pick it up. Best way to treat urine is to clean the stain first by applying Carpet Details, letting it dwell, and extracting it. Then, spray the area with Carpet Details and leave it so it can penetrate deep into the fibers, pad, and subfloor (if you soak it). As it dries, it will also dry the urine and hole it away from the fibers so the vacuum can extract it. If Urine is in the subfloor or pad it may be necessary for several treatments, or replacement of the pad.
It is a true All-in-One cleaner for Tile, Carpet, Upholstery, and even concrete. No worrying about ordering, stocking, mixing, or training on a bunch of different products.
It works, plain and simple, and it takes care of wicking issues, plus, there will never be browning issues.
Unique to Carpet Details, you can prespray entire areas without worrying about it drying before you can get to it. It reactivates as you wet it while cleaning. This saves a lot of time switching between wand/machine and sprayer.
It doesn't corrode equipment, in fact, it cleans the fittings and tanks. In fact, pouring several scoops into the rinse tank will keep the rinse tank and water clean and allow some Carpet Details to be left in the carpet while rinsing. Carpet Details keeps cleaning so the carpet will continue to look better and better for the next few days.
Neutral zone 8.1 pH safe AND effective on ALL fibers (nylon, poly, olefin, wool, etc)
Works amazingly well on tile and grout, natural stone, and those micro grooves in wood floors (laminate, lvt, etc)
The encapsulation of Carpet Details works differently than anything out there. It does not have any crystallizing powder polymers. Carpet Details simply cleans/strips the fibers of dirt and grease without hurting the fiber's stain guard, and the most unique thing about it is how it will not let that dirt and grease reattach to the fibers...therefore allowing the vacuum to pick it up during the next vacuuming cycle. So use it with CRBs, pads, or extraction. Carpet Details works for all methods. And it never loses its effectiveness, even after it is mixed.
The ingredients are proprietary. They consists of natural minerals, including oxygen, and natural salt minerals. It cleans using the same minerals that rain and seawater use to clean with...just multiplied many times for efficacy. We are the only manufacturers of Carpet Details. It is not a private labeled product from a big chemical company. We order the pure minerals directly from the mines, and have it processed and stored according to our proprietary recipe.
For easier mixing, slowly pour Carpet Details into warm water in a 5 gallon square water jug, then lift and shake it until dissolved. Once dissolved, it will not resettle, and it will never expire.
If you are cleaning via Low Moisture Technique, you may notice that pads get better contact agitation than Counter Rotating Brush (CRB) machines. The reason is that pads provide much more surface contact with the fibers, plus, crb's have smooth bristles going against smooth fibers, which doesn't allow the same amount of "wipe" effect as cotton or microfiber or fiber pads do.
Agitating is a very helpful part of cleaning. We don't rinse our teeth clean, nor simple rinse dishes, we brush them clean. We also never use a brushless car wash because no matter how hot or how high the pressure is, it will almost always leave a dirt film.
