  The EncapBoard is Now Closed
Posted by: encapman - 12-24-2020, 04:48 PM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - No Replies

After a couple of decades, the EncapBoard is now officially closed. At one time this was a very active forum. But Facebook and other forms of social media have largely replaced message boards. There are a couple of industry forums that are still running, yet not at the level of the forums in the early 2000's.  

We will leave this forum up as a reference. Feel free to explore the world of encapsulation by performing searches (in this forum and in the archived forum). There's a wide range of materials that can help you in your business. However, the EncapBoard is no longer open for posting new messages.  

We’re continuing to actively put out relevant content for our industry. Our emphasis is now on our YouTube channel "EncapTV", our blog "EncapBlog", as well as our Facebook page. And of course, if you have encap related questions or need help with your business you can always reach out to us at Excellent Supply (727) 821-2020.

I have a bluish/gray gd carpet to clean. Its an old carpet and has not been 
cleaned in a long time. Large spots are all over the carpet. The chemicals I have
is hydrox, ds2 & punch. The machines I have a hot water extractor, cimex and
a 175rpm scrubber. Any recommendations on the best way to tackle this job to make me shine? Blush
Thanks in advance.

Hello everyone!

I hope everyone is fine. Didn't post a long time...

The pads i get here last only 1000-1500 square fts!  Confused !!

Hope someone can help.

Are the releasit cleaning solutions and pro choice spotters ok to keep in the truck in very hot temperatures? besides hydrox!

Can you leave ox-erase on carpet without extraction?
How does it compare to usr or other urine treatment solutions??
Can you use it on wool???

  Noisy Cimex
Posted by: Lounge Lizards - 07-23-2020, 06:10 AM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - Replies (5)

I've noticed that my Cimex is now noisier than when I first bought it.

Might it need 2 bearings (part # 02‐4020‐0000) replaced??



  NEW Excellent Supply Website
Posted by: encapman - 07-13-2020, 05:14 PM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - No Replies

We're excited to announce the NEW Excellent Supply website. We had been on our old shopping cart platform for about a decade. We updated the site along the way. But the back-end was getting a little bit tired and creaky (kinda like me sometimes).

Migrating a shopping cart with thousands of customers, thousands of orders, and hundreds of products is a major task, so I put it off, probably for longer than I should have. In fact, now that we have a shiny new cart, I can say with certainty, I should have done this a long time ago!

For the past few weeks, we've poured a ton of time and energy into this project. But I think it was worth all the effort. The new site is cleaner, it's easier to search fr items, tracking orders is much nicer, and our EncapCash Rewards program is easier than ever to work with.

The new Excellent Supply website will make it easier for our customers to quickly find the products they're looking for. As you now shop for encap products you'll find what you're looking for faster. And we will continue to introduce more helpful content to assist with commercial carpet cleaning, particularly with the encapsulation cleaning method.

Here's a video that shows some of the cool new features.

Hi Rick,
I recommended EncapBoard to a friend that just bought a Cimex on my advice.

Say's that she can't get on.

Jess is her name.

Any ideas??

Cheers mate, take care out there.


  Gecko 7-foot Extender Hose

Just got my order a few minutes ago. Hooked the hose to my Gecko upholstery machine and connected the other end to my floor wand. Now I have a MINI extractor. It will work great. Thanks Rick and staff.
