    Did you inform them there is no warranty once it's installed in a commercial setting?

    Or am I incorrect on that assumption? Read that a long time ago.

    It's commercial carpet so I'll assume you're wrong.

    Don't try to do a megastroke with the zipper. Stroke about twice the length of a wand stroke or until your hose gets in the way.
    ps. Mike this was just a spray, dwell, and extract

    So, are there commercial warranty guidelines for cleaning, or are you referencing the residential ones which likely don't apply in commercial settings?

    I'd bet they very different in what they cover and what they recommend for cleaning frequency etc.

    We were provided this to follow by one of our commercial sites.

    The warranty is written in such a way for the manufacturer benefit... Not saying they don't replace carpet or pay to correct it, which they do... The reason they specifically list no rotaries is because in-house maintenance and janitorial staff can FUBAR some carpet real quick... Taking the "rotary" out of the equation is the easiest thing to do...

    Basically if you want the work, abide by the guidelines...

    Hi Mike,

    We all know the Cimex is safe. That's why it's so popular for rug washing (safe and effective).

    To that end, we sent a Cimex to Professional Testing Lab in Dalton. That's the same lab the CRI uses to conduct its 3rd party testing. And from the horses mouth the Cimex is safe. PTL ran the Cimex with Releasit and Fiberplus pads making 22 passes on commercial cut pile carpet. 22 Passes! Have you ever cleaned making 22 passes? Here's a link to the PDF confirming their test results... http://excellent-supply.com/Cimex-Test-Results.pdf

    But if your back's against the wall from a manufacturer who isn't aware how safe a Cimex is, you could simply use a CRB and Releasit Encap-Punch. Both are CRI approved and perform really well!

    I agree with the CRB machine,

    since the manufacturers are concerned with "untwisting" the fiber bundles.

    On a thick pile, I agree. But in a very low commercial...it doesn’t make sense

    I don't know why, it's certainly all psychological, but I feel dirty "just" running a CRAB over a carpet..


    But a Cimex is OK....lol


    Maybe because it looks mysterious and that it may actually extract...
