  Church carpet cleaning
Posted by: cleanclub77 - 11-15-2019, 10:55 PM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - Replies (1)

We have carpet to clean in a church. We also have pews to clean. We do not have a machine to fit between the pews to scrub. I was wondering 
if it would make any sense to spray punch or ds2 on carpet between pews and extract with portable. We will be using punch
 and ds2 with cimex on rest of carpet. Any suggestions or recommendations would be appreciated.

  Releasit removed a thick puddle of sump oil
Posted by: encapman - 10-26-2019, 05:13 PM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - Replies (1)

This story was shared with us a few years back from a very creative carpet cleaner down in South Australia. John Kelley came up with the most imaginative way I've ever heard of to clean a thick puddle of sump oil from a carpet. Talk about thinking outside the box (way outside the box). It was such an incredible story - I've decided to put together a new ad to share his amazing experience using Releasit. Here it is.

  Six ways encapsulation helps the environment
Posted by: encapman - 10-22-2019, 06:35 AM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - No Replies

1. Less Water Consumption
Encapsulation uses less water. Typically, each gallon of water will clean about 300 square feet of carpet. So we are taking less fresh clean drinking water from our environment.

2. Lower Moisture in the Building
There's also less moisture being introduced to the building, and the carpet normally dries in an hour or two. Lowering the moisture threshold in commercial buildings is advantageous to the heath of the indoor environment.

3. No Wastewater
Wastewater from carpet cleaning includes contaminants that were removed from the carpet as well as any chemicals that were introduced during the cleaning process. With encapsulation, the encapsulated soil is recovered through routine post-vacuuming and gets disposed of as dry soil. Again, this is a much lower environmental impact.

4. No Gasoline Consumption
With encapsulation, we are not using a gasoline or diesel-powered engine to clean the carpet. Instead, we are using a modest amount of electricity. The equipment used normally draws around 12 amps of current.

5. No Carbon Monoxide Emissions
Since encapsulation carpet cleaning does not depend on running a fuel-burning engine, there are no carbon monoxide emissions being emitted to the atmosphere.

6. Safe Cleaning Agents
The Releasit line of encapsulation products is safe for the cleaning technician, the occupants of the building, and the environment.

This video explains how encapsulation lowers the impact on the environment:

  upholstery cleaning
Posted by: cleanclub77 - 10-14-2019, 08:51 AM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - Replies (3)

I'm in the process of bidding on upholstery cleaning. I have around 33 chairs to clean.
I will be using punch as my cleaner. Not sure if I will be using hand bonnet only or mixing 
punch in extractor after bonnet cleaning. I guess it will depend on how dirty chairs are. 
What do you upholstery cleaners using this method normally charge per chair?

The EncapBoard has been a resource for the carpet cleaning community since 2002. But in recent months we've been hit with heavy amounts of spam posts (much of it coming out of eastern Europe). It got to the point that we considered shutting down the EncapBoard. Well rather than close the forum, we came up with a solution to stop the spam and keep the EncapBoard running. 

Going forward, comments on this forum will be reviewed before the post goes live. So there will be a delay before your post appears. This extra step will make it possible to keep the EncapBoard spam-free.

We still want to share in your discussion relating to encapsulation carpet care! So please feel free to post as much as you'd like. After your post has been reviewed it will be published. Be assured, ALL "legitimate posts" will be approved and posted to the forum.

Thank you for your understanding and continued support.
