Is when the daycare facilities call me to clean these rugs. So much sand builds up, it’s rediculous.

My powrflite vacuum must’ve overheated because it just crapped on me and I couldn’t get it to turn back on when I was vacuuming it forever

Vacuum and bonnet clean using a oxy scampoo.

Nillium EncapPLUS with Oxy Force is a good one

Or bonnet clean using a carpet santizer

I have a couple of daycares that I VLM. Never any complaints.
That rug was shat on. These kids roll around on these rugs, and sometimes vomit on them also. Dude, all kids are filthy. HWE should be the only way to clean daycare center rugs. I've got another friend who does VLM on that type of carpet and I think he's crazy also

@Matt Wood If your vacuum shot off it is because the filters are plugged and no air moving around them to keep them cool. That would include the bag that may seem half empty but is lined with silt.

I agree 💯 %. These rugs need to be taken out for submersion washing. I feel that HWE accelerates bacterial growth due to the fact that water recovery on rugs is not as efficient due to the rubber backings.
So VLM cleaning with a sanitizer is the lesser of two evils.

I removed all the filters to get better suction and yes, the bag was halfway full, heavy with sand.

When did you get your doctrine to know how much bacteria is left on the carpet after a 12flow wand cleans the carpet at 230-250f?

Which one of the soap salesmen told you that mumbojumbo?

Sucks about your vacuum though. Wait..... No it doesn’t. You bought that turd pusher.

A Doctrine is a method to following an ideology.
A Doctorate is an education.
I took a physics class that told me you can’t suck air through rubber.

Turn upside down in rug pit. Attach blower - walk away and leave to flap for an hour or so. When you return bring shovel. Then clean with whatever method. (We shampoo and then HWE)
Do 4 or 5 and you will have enough for your very own sand-pit.
