You do know makers of chems can put what ever dilution ratio they want on a jug. Nothing but a general guideline ............some do it for "marketing" purposes to sell more product. I use half of what anybody recommends . 4 oz a gallon works for me.
Go ahead and compare Releasit products to other encap products head to head on the carpet...
Dilution rates. Cleaning performance. Soil resistance. End use cost.
There's a reason why they're so popular. :-)

But do you make your own products or just slap your name on the jug?

Private labeled like everyone else.

I’d love to see you guys come out with an acid side encapsulating rinse for hwe.

Scott's has it.
I get their encaping cleaner/rinse from my Interlink. I like a higher ph rinse. Scott's Prime Time is 8-9 RTU. , but they quit stocking it.
.
Began to stock Ultimax Plus ph 4-4.5 rtu.

I had to have them get Prime time in for me.

Encap-HydrOx is what you're looking for. The pH is 3.5 in concentrate. It can be used in an HWE application. Plus it contains hydrogen peroxide. And it has a hydrogen peroxide stable encap polymer, so it encapsulates beautifully. If you'd like to try a sample of HydrOx, or our other items give us a call 727-821-2020, or click here www.TryReleasit.com.

You do not want to use hydrogen peroxide as a rinse.

Well the CC agreed to have me come out to spot clean on Sunday.

Is there anything in particular you Spyder holdouts want to see?


I'll be alone in the building and be able to good off with some videos..


Maybe I'll whisper....

If you were to scrub in carpet protectant with a CRB or Cimex after HWE do you think it would stay clean longer? Why I am asking is that seems to be the only real difference as to why encapping would stay cleaner longer. The dirt isn't being removed with encapping, it is being pushed down but the fibers are getting the polymer scrubbed into them not just sprayed on them.

Applying a good crystallizing encap product (like Releasit) as a final step will definitely help the carpet to stay clean longer.
What affect will those crystals have on peoples lungs when they get airborne? People vacuum with garbage vacuums that blow dust into the air, so the crystals will get airborne. Or is it all just about the money now, worry about health later.
I know of one company that made an encapsulation product and then quit because the chemicals needed to make it were not healthy.

Andy we're talking about dust particulate, literally. The encapsulated soil remains on the carpet surface, and then post vacuuming begins to extract the encapsulated soil / dust particulate. What they're being exposed to is on par with the dust they'd normally experience vacuuming their carpet.

I've been using H2O2 both in my Cimex ( drip feed ), for around 14 years, & in my FlexiPro sprayer for upholstery for a decade or more.

I thought maybe the solution pump on the FlexiPro was on the way out so I ordered a new one.

Turned out to be an entirely different problem & that pump is still in the box from Superior Cleaning Solutions.

Turned 74 last week, had my annual check up & lung/chest x-rays.
Doc; say's I am extremely healthy for my age except for my weight with NO abnormality in my lungs etc; no sugar, low-mid cholesterol, BP is below normal for my age, blood is 7.4rH.

Just use common sense when applying any chemical, that's all I can offer.

:yoda:

Except encapsulation is not dust it is a chemical. I believe you have stated in another thread that you can reactivate it by applying water to the carpet. So when it enters your lungs it no longer a dust particulate but a chemical.

It's highly improbable that the polymer would defy gravity, become airborne, enter the breathable zone, and be inhaled into the lungs. But in the off chance it did occur, the polymer has no toxicity. So it really is a moot point.

All airborne particles seem to "defy gravity" at first glance. Even if those particles are inert chemically they can be damaging to health. Asbestos is an example of note.

The jury is still out...


....vacuum well out of an abundance of caution.

There's so many more worse pollutants in these idiots' homes we clean. Start with the stupid plug in air fresheners burning pollutants with a hint of burned wet flowers smell that have an abundance of petroleum based chemicals that they're making their newborn babies breathe. Then there's the abundance of animal urine from wall to wall. And on the allergy side...just look at the neglected air filters suffocating the air conditioner.

I highly doubt a little encapsulating crystallizing effect will get in the homeowner's lungs. That reasoning alone has made our chemical suppliers dilute our products more with products that are weak. All the customer has to do is just get out of the area we are cleaning, to let any airborne mists settle and it'll be gone by the time we're done cleaning. The same goes for our products that NEED butyls, and more dilimonene additives.

It's freaking cleaning! Just look at what's under their sink. Do you think that they stick their head in the toilet bowl right after they scrub that blue juice all around it to get high? Hell no. They get the heck out of their so they don't have to breath those chemicals. That's what they should do when we clean their carpet. Get out!
