    brushnclean-machines.jpg Encapsulation cleaning uses very little moisture by encapsulating soil particles in specially designed cleaning compounds.

    · Low-moisture, low-residue means carpeted areas are available for use immediately after cleaning

    · Carpeting lasting longer and looking great

    · Favored by hotels, convention centers, offices, and institutions for maintenance cleaning.

    As an early adopter of this technology, MasterBlend has developed products for superior encapsulation cleaning.

    Mist N Brush LM Cleaner is a low-moisture liquid soil encapsulator that surrounds soil particles for easy vacuuming.

    Spongemaster Dry Absorbent applied to the stained area then agitated will loosen tough particles for easy cleaning.

    MasterBlend has developed counter-rotating brush machines to complete the innovative system for low moisture, low-residual carpet care.

      @Jimmy L. I can see why it would resoil...not unlike the HWE, if the carpet left to high of alkaline, it soils faster. If you use the 9-10ph encap, you still want to compound it which is a 5 ph. That probably why you are seeing resoiling at quicker rate if you didnt balance it out. This where compound shines.

      With all due respect... That is full of misstatements and half truths.

      Well lets agree to disagree. Compound/encap works great just like HWE. I for one, refuse to allow myself to be ignorant to the subject and show favoritism to a paticular method.

      Using a interim commercial cleaning application in a residential setting is just baffling to me... Yes it may work, but is it the right thing to do?

      Comes down to a moral compass IMHO...

      Nothing about being close minded...

      Ok, why it immoral to do it in residential? The way I see it, i do better than the 90% HWE guys that does a bad job leaving the carpet a septic swamp that doesnt dry for days.... Only less than 10% does it right according to Mike..... Likewise, same can be said with vlm doing bad job... Oh boy, the argument getting quiet circular..

      Compare it to a Kirby salesman in your home using his Scott's Lab shampoo thru his vacuum. Same thing but you're using a different machine. Yes it will work but you need to actually clean the largest filter in the home. HWE works like a washing machine in that it rinses that filter and cleans it while VLM will just scatter the dirt around.

      Someone made a video that showed a wand cutting thru a recently VLMed carpet and what a difference!

      I agree with concept hwe as washing machine...however, if done wrong makes it worthless likwise with vlm methods. Also, one has to assume that all fiber are created equal...else carpet should be washed on weekly basis just the hair on someone head or clothes on someone back...impractical still..thats why i said vacuuming is king in carpet care...what makes it better is having protectors applied.

      as for that vlm video, there are vlm videos fixing the hwe screw ups...

      That why i alway say. .its always the user fault, not the method or machine fault...

      I have to disagree as it just boils down to physics. HWE removes more dirt. VLM is just an "Appearance" management method.

      I agree with the physics, water is ultimate power, one the strongest forces on this planet...only less than 10% of carpet cleaner does it right....

      When you want to base your cleaning abilities to what your competition currently provides, so be it.. You feel like your "providing a better cleaning & environment" because "AAA-PPP cleaning company's" don't do it right, that's up to you.. Does it make it right?!? Not in my book..

      Using a method of cleaning that IS intended for Commerical Carpet in a residential setting isn't correct.. I don't care how you choose to manipulate your current cleaning abilities or position..

      Bottom line is if you make money doing it your way, who cares right?!?

      People who actually know right from wrong.. Educated people who took the time to learn there industry.. Nothing about being close minded about it..

      Look at @Desk Jockey "King of Cimex's" ask him if he'd vlm a residential carpet, hell ask @Mikey P ..

      You rinse it...doesnt mean that there shit on the rest of your body, unless you shower because after you taking dump and get a little turd on your hands....any good good CC should have HWE machine, whether it a TM, portable or spotter machine...

      Why even use it at all even if its intended for commercial setting? If it isnt good for one carpet, it cant be good for any carpet... After going with @Mikey P. To Sambos even i said that a vlm would not stand a chance in that situation and i would be begging for a 360i to clean it..again i am not ignorant to the methods, its cause and effects. But i will not jump on the bandwagon and knock the vlm around...they all do great job all depending on the cleaner abilities to provide it..

      A home is a home.. Kids don't roll around, put their faces down into commerical carpets.. You just want to justify why you do it.. That's fine, but don't piss on my back and tell me it's raining..:winky:

      The environment is different between the 2.. If you can't see that, then no point in continuing a conversation..

      Semantics...

      From what i have seen... When you only clean a home once every 18 to 3 years.. Its irrelevant, the damage is already done and the kids have been rolling around in pig sty... As i said before i have been house cleaning since i was 8 in both middle class home and multi million dollor homes... They dont care... If they did, they would have it done every 8 mos...but they dont. In my observation, they carpet only stay clean after HWE for about 6 mos, more if with protectors. I found that vlm was similiar. This debate is subjective riddled with conjectures, i am no different.

      I try not to do that. But if'n I did, I'd use one Cobb's products. Lockhart says they clean the shit out of carpet. :shifty:

      I would bet thousands that if you went and Encaped that same carpet the following day, you could make the Encap look night and day difference.

      We are not method cleaners. We best apply the system or systems that will deliver the best results for the projects.

      I believe you HWE to flush out all the crap and then you should be able to maintain appearance with OP or Encap with Cimex.

      Flushing only those areas that receive heavy tracked in soil periodically.
