  Cimex machine
Posted by: cleanclub77 - 09-24-2019, 12:08 AM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - Replies (3)

Question for you pros - I was cleaning carpet with my cimex over the weekend. I flipped my champagne pads over to use other side of pad. 
When I started my cimex it was dragging, going real slow until I pushed down on the handle and ran it like that. This went on for a little while. Any idea what caused
the machine to drag like that? This wasn't the first time this has happened. Any one else experience that?

  Life expectancy
Posted by: cleanclub77 - 09-19-2019, 09:30 PM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - Replies (3)

I have some DS2 that's been in my garage for over a year (hot & cold) and was wondering is it still any good. I have a job this weekend and was planning on using it hoping it is still effective. I waited too late to place an order. I do have some hydrox on hand. What would be the best way to go using my cimex?

  86.000 sq fts of hotel carpet
Posted by: Bernd - 08-31-2019, 05:42 PM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - No Replies

After a long while i am posting and asking again for your professionell advice and experience.

I have to bid for two Marriott Hotels. 360 rooms, ball rooms, floors....More than 86.000 sq fts! They have a  company for more than 16 years cleaning their carpets wifh portables but are now looking für some cheaper alternatives.

The carpets are in a good condition. They only want  "one year cleaning".....wet cleaning...

Did  you ever encap  hotel rooms? How can i convice them for encapping?

Thought of giving them a free test cleaning. What do you think? I could use a Sprayborg, Cimex or one small or two larger CRB's.

Thanks for your advice.


Sad Carpet Cleaning Went Wrong

Hello I am new to the Forum

Please I need help with a problem I have. Two days ago I cleaned a very dirty commercial carpet using my Orbot Vibe and the Environ HP as liquid. First applied a pre-spray of the same Environ HP over the darker spots, let it work for a few minutes, then pre-agitated the carpet with a fiber pad,(AgiClean Pad) and then I passed it again with the superzorb pads.

But I do not know that I did wrong that once dry, appeared dark marks where the major stains were. I think Releasit Encap-Hydrox could help me remove the stains, but how would be the best way to apply it or should I use the Releasit Encap-Clean DS2. Please any advise what to do? Thanks Huh

  Encapsulation and Sanitizing
Posted by: shuja11714 - 07-03-2019, 02:57 PM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - Replies (4)

Technically I believe only hard surfaces can be sanitized. However all HWE carpet cleaners claim they sanitize the carpet, I use my CRB and DS2 and Hydrox to clean carpet, can I also claim that our cleaning also sanitize carpet?

  Can you shower-feed with an orbital machine
Posted by: encapman - 07-03-2019, 07:23 AM - Forum: GENERAL DISCUSSION - No Replies

Customer, new to using the Vibe asked about shower-feeding or using bonnets on the Vibe:

Quote:I just purchased a Vibe from Excellent Supply. I’ve been using VonSchrader for years. New to the orbital world and looking to learn what I can. I read the following post and wanted to better understand the shower feed and pad changing. I do mostly residential work. Does this mean I use same pad over and over until it’s worn out. Sorry new guy question. 

1. If you shower feed the solution (like with a Cimex machine, or a rotary machine with a tank) there's no need to rinse the pads. The pads will be perpetually flushed as the solution passes through the pads. This keeps the pads relatively clean. They'll get slightly gray, but nothing too significant. 

My reply: 

If you "shower-feed" with scrubbing pads, such as the FiberPlus pads, (like you would on a Cimex machine) there's no need to rinse because the pads will be perpetually flushed as the solution passes through the pads. That's how shower-feeding works on a Cimex or on a rotary machine using a tank.

Now with any type of bonnet cleaning machine, such as the Vibe, it's more practical to use bonnets. You could use FiberPlus pads to perform straight encap, but the pads will quickly become soiled since the solution is not being dispersed through the pad.

We normally recommend using bonnets with an orbital machine, such as the Vibe. The bonnets will absorb soil as you clean. The bonnets can be flipped over as they become dirty (so you'll use both sides of the bonnet). And then the bonnets can be cleaned after the job by spraying/rising them or by laundering them. 

Microfiber bonnets rinse out easily. So you actually only need to carry a handful of bonnets, since they can be easily rinsed out on the job as needed. Microfiber bonnets are highly effective! And when using bonnets with a good encap detergent like Releasit, you're actually removing soil through two mediums - 1. Absorption, 2. Encapsulation.

We recommend these microfiber bonnets: Microfiber GLIDE for residential, https://www.excellent-supply.com/Microfi..._1143.html  And microfiber SCRUB for commercial, https://www.excellent-supply.com/Microfi...p_960.html
