and you think the dye blockers magically find those little tiny holes and latch on before the rinse gets vacuumed out of the carpet? ...come on Sam you're smarter than that..



I hope.
Have you ever spilled koolaide in a carpet that’s not protected and cleaned it immediately?

Come on whose smart?

I just wanna clean like 1%er and make money and not worry about prespray for rest of my life...

I wonder how much more money a carpet cleaner would if they gave their biz more attention instead of debating the best prespray on the planet on fb... Ill just use what mark is using..

Prochem came out with quart bottles of stain blocker in the late 80’s after stain master was out.

It was a clear dye $10
A quart for like a 1000 sq ft.

They sold it for a month and DuPont had a fit.

Finally they came out with master series with the test kits. And two types of protector one for non stain resist carpets and one for stain resist carpets those products retailed for around $60 per gal

If your market allows you to run 1 prespray then maybe?

not knocking Marks product as I've never tried it and he definitely comes across as caring about what he does.
But I carry 3 presprays for carpet and 3 rinses

I carry about 3 as well. One for wool, one for normal traffic and one nuclear prespray.

Marks products is very good. I like Harvard products as well which he works with, i think. Prochem definitely is definitely good products. Im starting to lean on what sooper been saying, it aint complicated, you only need a few cleaning chem and it more than enough to do 98.96754% of the jobs...

So, one evening our dog woke up from behind my tv chair and squeezed out under my small round chairside table...upon which was a crystal wine glass full of RED wine! I watched it in slow motion shatter against the wall and explode against the tv chest, spray into the hall and soak into our nearly new light gray carpet. We did what we could to dab it up, and the next day called Mike at Connoisseur Carpet & Cleaning. We had little hope either that the carpet could be saved or that we'd see anything of Mike, a stranger to us, for a day or two. WRONG! Mike came out within three hours and had it totally cleaned in 45 minutes. It's good as new, and we've found a knowledgeable, trustworthy, professional to call in the future. Highly recommended. Thanks, Mike.

If you were prespraying a polymer and rinsing with a polymer I'd give it a solid maybe

it works .
I used Steve Smith's PBX for awhile as pre-spray and my regular rinse (1/3 to 1/2 suggested dilute of Prochem Heat Wave or Dry Slurry)
The lack of re-soil was noticeable in some homes


but seems like that would be a lot of wasted polymer

it is.
as most is rinsed out in the wanding.
But not all if using pre-spray in sufficient quantity for moderate to heavy soil conditions (gal RTU pr 200-300sf)

..L.T.A.

Harvard does not make the chems here being asked about.

I believe it was a Steam way product I had won many years ago that also claimed had a protectant in their rinse... But I never tried it way back then...

I prefer not to run a polymer rinse through my truckmounts as in some experimenting we found they would plug up the units especially at higher heat.

I have used a polymer rinse once on a bad powdered carpet deodorizer job... Seemed to help but Descaled after that job.

I prefer (and so does Harvard) to apply a protectant that old fashioned way yet (after cleaning)

It someone could get some product it would be interesting to see it's performance... But I would only practice on an old scrap sample or your personal home vs sell magic pixy dust protectant (@Jimmy L influenced here) to your clients...

Ya if bought it I would try at my house first.
I’ve seen this product for over a year in Facebook. Not a fan of rinsing with a polymer either.

Prochems all fiber deep clean is a good product a acid side detergent with polymer also.
