I use to worry about heat in the past. Yet with cotton pads under a 175, moving slowly not slinging, it lets the machine do the work and the pads create plenty of heat.
the carpets look great so no longer concerned about hot water

I agree Rob. Heat isn't a real big issue. Our products work well in ALL temperatures, as I mentioned in the video. However, science as well as practicle experience, tells us that molecular activity increases with warmer/hotter temps.

To illustrate: try to wash engine grease off your hands using cold tap water. Then increase the water temperature until it becomes reasonably hot. We know that grease removal becomes easier with warmer water. The same rule applies when washing anything. Adding heat to the equation helps the cleaning agent do its job a little bit easier.

You get into 60 or below in areas of Florida and with the wet atmosphere... That temp feels colder then 20 degrees at home I swear.


Heat the place up Rick... I'm coming to #SaigerSouth soon 😎😊

I have to say the Releaseit traffic encap is amazing. It even desolved some sort of gum or mashed in candy. I don’t care if it smeared it around or whatever, it looked and smelled great. Wish I could encap all day for .30 per sqft. The juice in the green bottle. I used it yesterday in a large 2nd story office. Mixed it at 12oz per gallon and went to work with my Vibe and Micobeast pad. I was really impressed.

I tested two new to me encaps yesterday, both with out heat, which I've almost never done.


Harvard's Bone Dry did AMAZING.


The other, which none of you have ever heard, not so much.
true encap, with scrubbing pad only and no extraction, or using an absorbant bonnet? Assuming one of your new OP toys.! :winky:

It makes a very good spotter as well.
I go over the place with a hogshair pad, then cruise it with a bonnet or microfiber pad.

Works like a champ.

Rick, I agree with the importance of heat, I just feel like moving the 175 slow with cotton pads on nylon when I stop the machine the pads are hot. That kind of agitation provides plenty of heat. I wouldn’t do it on commercial it might burn it

Juice in a green bottle, Encap punch. Is that the one you can use on furniture?

I just made a video of me cleaning a stained couch with it as per your suggestion. Worked like a charm!
I started taking videos too.
We've turned into a bunch of "Show Biz Kids".
Steely Dan check it out on YouTube of you are interested.
