We have been successful at removing curry and mustard.

we use CTI Stain One or Stain Magic and the their UV light or time to remove it. The stain will generally not disappear until 7-10 days after the cleaning-- so inform the customer.

Tom;

Thanks for sharing the UV/Oxidizer process from the DuPont patent.

Usage did precede their application, but the additional information was helpful.

Notice that the UV light removed more of the stains than 27% hydrogen peroxide.

We don't recommend the Peroxide as strong, but we have used up to 15% mixed into a foam w/neutral detergent & painted on the stains.

Of course, DuPont did not have the stronger UV led lamps now available (most stains in an hour or so) :

I bought mine from Larry Cobb after the demo at the ARCS Conference in San Antonio Texas and found its use a valuable part of what we do in-plant at Area Rug Cleaning Company:

Seriously, I wish I had thought of it decades ago. Larry Cobb brought it to light more recently to me. (The big UV lamp) Finally, got one and implemented it as part as how we do things to remedy many sorts of yellow stains, and the usual urine type. (Naturally, the odor is taken care by U-Turn treatment, followed by washing and then dried before the light treatment)

Note: I am an unpaid advocate for this big UV Lamp. When something works, I talk about it. My guess Larry sold a half dozen or more in the last couple of weeks that were directly influenced by my postings on private rug groups on Facebook.

I will state it again: This tool is a benefit for in-plant rug washers. Get one or two!

I'm picking up my new DCI light today. Yippy skippy.

This is not in the same league. It is a 3 tube device. The one referenced by me and shown used at my place is for color correction. The cost of purchase in this case illustrates the difference in value.

Note this also about what is said about the Pros Choice D.C.I. Light: "To use the light effectively you must have the area to be inspected nearly completely dark"

This appears to be a detection device.

I don't care, I'm still buying it. Your post just reminded me of it. I bought it with the intent of being able to leave it overnight on stains. It will be fine for that. I didn't realize the OP was an advertisement for a different sort of light. How much for the Pixar looking light? Edit: I just saw Larry sells them, I'll check it out. : http://www.cobbcarpet.com/zen/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=69&products_id=5179

Detection, Activation, and Inspection.

Chemical Activation:

The Chemical Activation Tube is a tube that emits UVA & UVB electromagnetic frequencies. The energy emitted by this tube provides added reaction energy to the stain remover “Stain Magic”.

Using this chemical activation light will give you the power to remove stains you would otherwise not be able to remove.

The type of stains that will respond to the Stain Magic plus Chemical Activation light treatment are stains with an organic origin. Such as urine, vomit, coffee, mustard, curry, berry & fruit stains, etc.

How fast should the stain disappear? This will depend on:

  • The type of stained fiber.
  • The type and age of stain resistance on the fiber.
  • The type of stain.
  • The age of the stain.
  • What prior treatments have been performed on the stain.
  • The ambient temperature of the floor being treated.
  • The quantity of product applied.
The simple answer is that many stains will disappear within 1-2 hours. More difficult stain may require 12 hours.

Very little UV activation from the fluorescent tube.

Took 5 hours in CTI mustard demo.

-----------------

P.S. Tom, the new Rug cleaning facility looks very impressive.
The drying room should achieve quick results after your Centrifuge.

Dealing with this situation never have been easy. But we effectively have been taking care of these stains for a long with our own product.
