Does Very Low Moisture Carpet Cleaning actually remove soil?

When I do VLM I take a large mop bucket. Dunking and wringing the pads yields such dark slops that I have to change the water every couple of pads. It also allows me to carry on with the same pads on a large job.
I’m surprised your pads did not give up a LOT more soil.

If you use a portable once in a while, you'll get up close and personal with what dirty water looks and smells like.
I was a Miller's hack for a year or more, don't talk to me about portables like I'm a Kirby salesman...

How many TM jobs do we do where the translucency of the waste water is a.... disappointment?

Yes, it does. The magic polymers and encapsulant "Jimmy crystals" encase the dirt binaries. Erstwhile the magic oscillations of the vibrating pad engender the adamantine encapsulants and incrementally advance into the reverberating pad. Thus relinquishing a breadth of cleaner nadir surface behind. The effectuated goal will culminate into a mirthful patron.

You ought to see the dirty water in my plexiglass pump out when in doing a large building. It turns black in 5 minutes and just get thicker as the day goes on. One of my best marketing tools as everyone who sees it is mesmerized by how dirty it is.

yes, all methods (even HOST) will remove soil from carpet. It would be neat to be able to determine what percentage each one removes tho.
