Function: The low-moisture encapsulation method is a variation of the old “shampoo method”. The carpet is scrubbed with a rotary machine, cylindrical brush machine, or a 3-headed scrubber. As the carpet is scrubbed, the soil that was attached to the fiber is released from the carpet fiber into the encapsulation solution. Today’s better-quality encapsulation detergents are built with a crystallizing polymer that encapsulates the soil. After the carpet dries, the encapsulated soil can be extracted from the carpet during the post-vacuuming process.
Benefits: High production cleaning can be accomplished with the encapsulation method. Cleaning rates of 2,000-3,000 sq ft per hour can be achieved with encapsulation. This can be very helpful in larger commercial settings. Wicking and recurring spill stains can also be eliminated. Wicking and recurring spill stains are a common problem with commercial glue down (CGD) carpets. The crystallizing detergents employed and low moisture attributes of the encapsulation method help to eliminate these problems. Encapsulation makes it simple to maintain commercial carpets and keep them looking cleaner longer over an extended period of time.
Commercial Setting: Encapsulation is quickly becoming the most sought out method for maintaining commercial carpet today. As mentioned above: Encapsulation is fast. Encapsulation is a low moisture method. Encapsulation eliminates wicking and recurring spill stains. Encapsulation helps carpets to stay clean longer between cleanings. It can also be employed with minimal costs using a scrubber and cost-effective detergents. With encapsulation, building security is increased since it’s not necessary to be leave doors to the building open during cleaning.
HOT WATER EXTRACTION
Function: The hot water extraction method (steam cleaning method) injects 240-degree water into the carpet through spray jets. The water is immediately recovered through a vacuum orifice as It’s applied. The effect of this process can be compared to the rinse cycle of your washing machine. To facilitate cleaning, a strong detergent pre-spray is applied to the carpet prior to cleaning, and some level of agitation to the carpet is normally applied. Then the carpet is rinsed using the hot water extraction method.
Benefits: Hot water extraction is simply the best way to rinse a carpet of its contaminants. Since the hot water extraction method can employ countless gallons of water during the cleaning process it is possible to flush a large quantity of soil from the carpet during cleaning. For this reason, it is recommended to supplement encapsulation cleaning with periodic hot water extraction cleaning. It is commonly seen that the need for hot water extraction cleaning can be greatly reduced when a good program of encapsulation cleaning is being performed.
Commercial Setting: Hot water extraction has the greatest potential to flush contaminants from the carpet in a single cleaning as mentioned above. It is recommended that periodic HWE cleanings are included at intervals as a supplement to encapsulation cleaning. Special care is given to thoroughly rinse pre-treatment conditioning agents from the carpet so that re-soiling can be minimized.
