WHERE DID THE DIRT GO?
Have you wondered when using encapsulation - "how does the appearance of the carpet change before the encapsulation takes place? "
We referred it back to The EncapMan - Rick Gelinas from Excellent Supply.
To put it very simply... What we see as we look at the carpet is a reflection of light; that's what reaches our eyes. Our eyes perceive what's on the surface of the carpet fibre. But keep in mind, carpet fibre is made up of thousands of tiny fibres. In addition to all that carpet fibre, there's also a lot of space surrounding the individual carpet fibres.
What we're accomplishing through encap shampooing is to displace the soil from the visible surface of the fibre. The soil that's been scrubbed free from the fibre is now held in suspension in the encap solution. Since that fluid is surrounding the fibres, the majority of the soil that had formerly been on the visible surface of the fibre is greatly reduced. So at the point that the carpet is scrubbed, the appearance immediately looks clean. Of course all of the soil that was originally in the carpet is still there, waiting to be extracted from the carpet during the post-vacuuming process.
Realistically we can expect to see a pretty major improvement in the overall appearance of the carpet right off the bat, immediately after it has been scrubbed, and before it gets vacuumed. It is not actually a trick we do with smoke and mirrors, but sometimes the results sure do look that way!

Eliminate Odours fast!
ODORCIDE is a safe, economical and effective. It is a deodorizing product that leads to the complete elimination of odours. When carpet cleaning, it can be used at any stage of the cleaning process to eliminate all types of odours at their source.
Frequently asked questions-
Can I eliminate urine odour on first application?
Yes, you can eliminate Odours first time! Locate the source of the odour. You can use your nose however it is far more ideal to use a florescent black UV light in dim light to find the urine deposits. A Hydrosensor can also be a handy tool. It can detect the alkaline salts associated with urine. Thoroughly dry vacuum and then apply the diluted Odorcide treatment. Mix concentrate at a ratio of 1:16 (on dry carpet) and saturate 50% beyond the affected area. Extract the excess liquid and leave to dry. Note: no dwell time is required. On freshly cleaned carpet with strong odour, it is advised to pre-treat the affected area using Powerclean Urine Decon Ultra and post treat with Odorcide at between 1:8 and 1:12 for a more effective treatment.
On what surfaces will Odorcide work?
Odorcide 210 will eliminate odours on many surfaces and is safe on all wet cleanable surfaces. These include: carpets, rugs, curtains, tiles, wood, rubbish bins, plastic, vinyl, clothing, mattresses, upholstery, concrete, vehicle interiors, boats and various fabrics including nylon, cotton, acrylic, rayon, olefin, polyester as well as leather.
Is Ordorcide affected by other carpet cleaning pre-sprays, shampoos, rinses?
No, it is not affected by other common cleaning solutions or shampoos.
Is Odorcide 210 safe?
Yes, Odorcide 210 is safe to use. Odorcide 210 is nontoxic, nonirritating, non carcinogenic, non-flammable, non-corrosive, non-staining and biodegradable. It is recommended to make the area treated inaccessible to pets and children so as to prevent direct contact with the solution while wet.
Will Odorcide 210 remove urine stains?
Odorcide 210 is designed to eliminate odours and not a stain remover. For treating pet stains we recommend using Powerclean Oxy Spot as a post spray treatment to effectively fade urine stains.
