I dunno man, it cleans a lot of situations real well where HWE fail the customer's expectations..

Funny how people dont understand polymer crystallation and post vacuuming works..

I'll give you $100 if you can show me a vacuum bag or cup with over a quarter ounce of polymers in it, picked up the day after a encapping.

maybe in the desert
but at 1 gal per 300sf as suggested by most encrapoos, 2-3 hours or more is common than not without airmovers

"picking up the crystallized soil"

Did many tests in my own home years ago basically doing what he did.
At least I used a vacuum with a brush roll. And a post vacuum the next day to remove the "crystals" . The carpet resoiled within a month more like a couple weeks. Because anybody who believes that the small amount of polymers works at entrapping soil is ..................STUPIT.

All the polymer does is leave a DRY RESIDUE

All bets are off if a FILM FORMER us used

You are all so mean. I was watching it with fascination, but then the wife hollered and I had to wipe.

Did I miss anything?

Well you know I can't leave this hanging, so start explaining...
Who made the claim that you will vacuum up quarter ounce of polymer the very next day? How does that work when polymer have coated the fiber at microscopic scale?
Does it cling to the fiber the same way dirt does, and no matter how much you Wernered the carpet, you cannot vac the dirt of the fibers?

I learned it was gradual, at 3-6 mos before it loses it effectiveness and the carpet start showing the noticable soiling. Pretty typical even for HWE.

You dont just vacuum it all up the next day...

I was thinking about the video today while cleaning and if the guy was smart he would have at least put some cr*p in the renovator prior to the cleaning to at least make it LOOK like he took something out.
