Level 17-18-19 need to be cleaned. It’s 40,150 sqft.
Minimal soiling, a few coffee, soda, and the odd food spill.
1- Porty, good Chems, Shyte access to water.
2- Cimex, quality, roller brush vac, small porty for spills, DS-2
Which one would YOU choose????????

I don't care what anyone uses, Jeff

I've hacked out plenty carpet with sCampoo in the insterest of profit vs mega PITA set-ups

I'm just don't intend to BULLSH1T anyone that it's "just as good" or better


two kinds of encRappers


dolts that can't clean carpet right
or those willing to sacrifice quality in the name of easy profit

So, they’ve asked me to use MINIMAL water (data cables running through a custom built subfloor), I’m going to take 8 days to do it with a porty, doing one wet pass, and 4-6 dry passes, OR, do what they’ve asked, and vac and encap it????
REALLY LARRY?
I’m going to do what the client wants...
This is the 3rd year in a row....
Maybe, just maybe, there’s some merit to the system?????

Encapping on commercial carpet can produce great results. Main things are thorough vacuuming, the right chemistry and taking the time to do the job right. I had a job in February where I encapped a portion just to see how it would compare to the truck mount. A community college with tons of coffee and other beverage spills. Used a Cimex with an oxy encap solution. The areas I encapped only looked the same as the areas where I scrubbed with the Cimex and flushed with the TM. The system works. I would not use it on residential though.

Jeff, you don't have to justify or rationalize anything to me or anyone else

but lets break it down to the bottom line

If "cleaning" is defined as removing foreign substance from the carpet, do you think a vac, scrub and extract is better at that vs vac and swirling a soil slurry down to the backing?


and why would you haul up a porty for "spills" if you didn't know the above to be so?

I will argue I get great results in commercial with carbonated cleaning solutions. A 15 inch crb and a vibe and two ways striped pads.

but I will always use my truckmount when I can!

Wait, I can keep up. I cleaned my #boycave with a Bissell and encrap juice. Everyone is happy. Me the carpet cleaner is happy, me the customer is happy, the carpet is happy and it looks great smells great, and my partner, and the boys are happy. Should I have drug the TM down here?

BUT, why not encap?

I never said don't encRap
It's halfazz work though compared to a thorough cleaning

and for the record, lots of outfits do halfazz work (some knowingly, most not so) and are quite succe$$ful .
Examples would be the soap dispensig wand scrubers like Stan and others that rarely ever use pre-spray
and VLM brainwashed like Chemlie, bonnet-hEDs and Oh-Pee gEEks


It’s an open market, and if done RIGHT, it has its place
I agree .
and encRap has helped a myriad of hacks (that don't know they're hacks) get better results too

I just won't allow someone to pee on my leg and tell me it's raining

I have gas and oil burners on my truck. Always go with the oil unless its apartments I cant park close to. Then I roll the gas out close the apt, porty etc. Sucks but works if its too trashed to encap, which I would prefer. It there happy im happy. I guess a Dr. could take out more stuff since he's already in there.

On a large assisted living facility we clean individual rooms via the windows with a truckmount.

We use encap to clean all commons areas.
