Somehow this brand new TOPS MF pad got sliced in the washing machine on it's initial run through...It's interesting to see the foam in there before it breaks down with use...

I think I'll do a little soil soaking experiments out in the laboratory tomorrow...

Just bought two round microfiber pads that size at harbor freight minus the stripes for 79 cents a piece. I will use them to wax the subaru

I think the pads shine the most getting the last of the dirt, after the heavy soil load is out, or on VERY lightly soiled carpet.

Can't we just use our imagination?

The microfiber texture itself is likely to hold far more actual soil than the (compressed) foam would ever be able to

As usual all the critics have never tried what they proclaim to be an expert on...

of course you are wrong. After near 50 years cleaning carpets I've never proclaimed that. I've worn out many of those pads, and over 100 earlier version. They have their useful niche, but are not the end-all tool.

"End all"

Did I say that anywhere?


Go clean 500 ft with your symex and fiber pads and clean the next 500 ft with one of these microfiber pads put your Cimex pads in the 5 gallon bucket of the hot water and do the same with the microfiber and you tell me which ones removing soil...

We all know the Cimex isn't for removing soil. Neither is an orbital machine using fiber pads. The whole idea is the chemical doing the work, encapsulating the soil ,preparing it for removal by vacuuming. The microfiber pads can both encapsulate and remove soil at the same time. The degree to which it removes soil depends on how often you change the pads. Great on commercial but still not a fan on residential.

I have no illusions about what the Cimex does, or what straight encapsulation does. It makes the carpet LOOK awesome. With practice a 175 does as well.

When the soil load requires it, HWE works great, albeit a bit slower. It removes dirt. However if hoses, security, privacy, or such make that impractical , I'll use absorbent pads.

As I've said 10 times or more..

We all run across regular or first-time customers customers that have virtually no soil load in their carpet, just a few spots ...I'll say it again microfiber pads do a fantastic job of fixing those situations.

You can clean 500 ft² of pile carpet carefully with less than a gallon of water in an ounce of chemical (or none what so ever).. does it get any greener than that?

The carpets dry soft and fluffy and I found that even cornrowing can be removed as well as friction burn marks on commercial glue down

The doors being able to remain closed and the HVAC allowed to do what it's going to do is a big deal especially for the elderly

I've taken my rotary extractor off the truck to make room for my OP which gets far more use these days as I clean for my desired audience..


You old school fucks that want to fight with me on this I really don't give a shit what you guys do with your business but I would like to help out new guys from being close-minded idiots like I used to be and you ...want to be...


Carry-on

so why not a vac, a couple spotting towels and bottle of wonderjuice ?
that will do it for le$$ biz cost

I don't think anyone G'sAS how an outfit makes money as long as they're not bait 'n switch or otherwise shifty schmucks.

But has the goal post shifted around here from "being the best" premium cleaner, to whatever is good 'nuff for the situation is good 'nuff ?
and all that really matters is the check clears and custy is happy
(whether or not they know what "great" and "thorough" is)
