    Are you planning on cleaning it with your 175 rpm and bonnet?
    Can a watch?
    I think with that poor install job there might be a "YouTube" moment waiting to happen.. I foresee the 175 flinging tiles everywhere..:lol: :stir:

    Most on this board don't have that problem.. I did clean for a customer that used VS for years and me and my guy noticed a LOT of foam when he was just prespraying he mentioned it to me while I was CRB'ing cause I was noticing the same, I was like WTF! Then she told me that last guys said he was 1 of two in the area still using it, and he touted it like it was something special!!:eekk: I said there is a reason there is only 2 left..:biggrin:

    We aren't Heaven's Best. We don't bonnet clean. Never have. That has to be the worst.

    While i know you dont bonnet clean, do you use horizontal agitation to your advantage that can be achieve with 175 brush head? Which then can be completed with compound/CRB? The way i think is that this would be useful and done with difficult carpet. What do you think?

    Anything other then HWE. Don't even start on the TM vs PORTY in residential detached. Low moisture would be 1st degree murder charge in my mothers home. No question. The porty guy could go either way. Manslaughter (sever beating and he/she died) vs hiring them to be a helper...

    We did a 5,000 sq. ft. call center for a timeshare company. It was in really bad shape. Heavy black traffic on light colored. Used a 175 with a red pads followed by crb with compound. Came out perfecto.

    Lol i am porty user and i would never say it is better than TM... Encapsulation is used by many elite carpet cleaner....for example: cimex..while they may prefer hwe through and through. Unless you are hardcore and have absolutely nothing to do with vlm. If so i respect that.

    Dude, I'm not sure about you. You have not a clue about the cleaning process or ever researched into it. And your comments are just ignorant. Like more than marty and jimmys and I've learned to love them. Do you even own a cleaning company or just here to be a dickhead?

    certainly too much, as it squished out.
    if they used the correct glue at all...

    is Host your primary method, Will?
    if so, how do you get rid of all the d'limo solvent you used to get the glue off?
    does solvent soaked corncob really remove it all?

    thanks

    There was an interest article by Lew Migliore about 4 years ago -Planar Instability of Carpet Tiles. The different layers of a carpet tiles expand and contract at different rates with changes in humidity and temperature. Anything, including cleaning, that changes the temperature and humidity significantly can cause carpet tile edges to curl up slightly.

    Adhesive was never meant to keep the tile stuck firmly to the floor. In fact mills have often marketed the ease of removing a carpet tile and replacing it when necessary was one of the key selling features of carpet tile. Tile manufacturers are increasingly asking installers to use more and stronger adhesives which negates this selling point. But it does allow mills to blame the installers when edges curl up.

    The moisture of cleaning and the quality of installation play a role but IMO the key factor is the inability of the manufacturers to make a tile that will stay flat under all normal conditions.

    I wonder if an application of a solvent protector right after install would help with future cleanings?

    What about velcro? I think that would be awesome to apply some giant velcro pad over the subfloor and just velcro the tile to it
