Bio’s Green Carpet Cleaning Program
All carpet cleaning chemicals incorporate detergents to remove soils. Detergents are, by design, sticky so they can attract dirt. They have an affinity for greasy soil, surrounding it to separate it from the carpet fiber. This chemical action is aided by heat, agitation and dwell time. Even when using a fiber rinse as part of extraction cleaning, some detergent residue will be left on the carpet. Many fiber rinses themselves are sticky! One major carpet mill estimates that up to 15% of detergent used is left in the carpet following hot water extraction, and this residue is additive over repeated cleanings. Any new soil coming into contact with the carpet, such as dirt from shoes in normal foot traffic, will be attracted to the sticky detergent residue left on the carpet. This is referred to as “rapid re‐soiling”, the result of cleaned carpet getting dirty faster than carpet with no residue. Vacuuming removes loose soil, but will not remove dirt attached to sticky residue.
Carpets cleaned with truck mount or traditional methods cause dirt and greasy dirt to attach to the sticky residue detergents used to clean your carpets re‐soiling them up to 50% faster than encapsulation.
Encapsulating cleaning chemicals have crystalline polymers in addition to detergents. After the detergents have attracted and surrounded the greasy soil, the polymers “encapsulate” both the detergent and soil. As this encapsulated soil dries, it crystallizes into a dry (not sticky) residue. Encapsulation is actually a chemical process triggered by the proper formulation of polymers, having application in any type of carpet cleaning detergent.
This technology is the preferred method of cleaning for the following manufacturers of carpet, DuPont, Monsanto, Shaw, Collins & Aikmen and Allied Fibers and will not void your carpet manufacturer’s warranty.
