    In 15 years, i've never seen or had any problems with Berber carpet.

    But thanks for the help!

    Powermax is 10.5 with lots of oxy!

    Also dirty olefin Berber with the wrong wand, water and soil will sink!

    Olefin has a love of oil, and water goes right through it!

    Low surface tension.

    That why we try not to over wet it, also a wand that seals and doesn’t chatter is great

    The Prochem quad is great here!

    If a guys trying to be a hero and goes over and over it no fans and not enough dry strokes it will wick.

    Wool holds a 100 times it wieght in water and usually clean pretty easy, but if you leave the ph to high and over wet it you get the same problem as the olefin.

    Both are easy fixes light mist and vac with one step or all fiber textile rinse type product.

    I love using fans on these and leaving them dry to the touch!

    My problem over the years was a wand drips and leave one small water mark!

    Mist with peroxide and hit with a terry towel!

    In the mix when it comes to berbers ( I think) , and I have never seen brought up.
    The yarns. Not a solid thick piece, but strands twisted together. Soil getting worked deep into the yarns themselves???
