    Rug HELP(!) Request, Dealing w/Urine

    Thanks for the advice and warning. I have yet to begin treating it and have it in my garage; I do all iffy jobs and speed dries here. I was concerned with the delamination risk if I have yet to fully understand it, learning all I can as I go.

    Rug HELP(!) Request, Dealing w/Urine

    Thanks to you both for your replies! Brian, I have a water claw but honestly never considered using it on a rug but I can see where that could have made a difference. I guess I'll be using it on this one also after flushing as John recommended. I don't have a great variety of chemicals at hand...

    Flattened Carpet Fibers

    In tardy fashion, Ed, thank you again. That did the trick, if she seemed disappointed that I couldn't remove the damage she did to the carpet fibers from her efforts to remove the Slime. Much appreciated, still.

    Rug HELP(!) Request, Dealing w/Urine

    I recently cleaned a polyester area rug for a customer that had heavy urine contamination, using Unchained at a 50% dilution rate applied to both sides of the rug, allowed it to dwell then extracted and dried. This did not completely eliminate the urine smell and she was not overly impressed...

    Flattened Carpet Fibers

    Thank you so very much Ed. That makes good sense, and I'll put it into practice tomorrow. I do appreciate your response and advice!

    Flattened Carpet Fibers

    This comes from a small-time operator faced with a new challenge. I have a customer whose daughter worked "Slime" into some medium pile carpet probably at least a year ago, and the homeowner apparently tried removing it repeatedly with vinegar and water; at least that is all she has revealed...

    Fiberlock Shockwave on Carpet?

    That is interesting, Robert. That reinforces what's been said here; I'm glad to have dodged that bullet.

    Fiberlock Shockwave on Carpet?

    Tardy but no less heartfelt thanks here for your last reply to my query, Mama Fen, and for the continued discussion here from others. All of this is duly noted and will be taken into account on all future jobs of this nature. Thanks again to one and all.

    Fiberlock Shockwave on Carpet?

    Thank you once again, Mama Fen. Is there a default, go-to product for the seasoned pros here in such applications as this? I was looking at hypochlorous acid but don't know how effective it may truly be and again, it's designed for hard, non-porous surfaces. I'm not a"greenie", but believe...

    Fiberlock Shockwave on Carpet?

    Thanks to you both, Mama Fen and Robert86. This goes a long way toward understanding the inherent risk involved and also how to approach this situation; serious stuff all the way around. I very much appreciate your replies.

    Fiberlock Shockwave on Carpet?

    Thank you Odin. I figured the idea to be somewhat suspect but understand that someone who treated mold present on the walls suggested it and Shockwave by name. This may be to provide the owner with piece of mind; I didn't know if there was some legitimate, recommended technique of applying this...

    Fiberlock Shockwave on Carpet?

    Hello ladies and gents, I'm still learning the industry and have a question- Is it practical to use Shockwave to "disinfect" carpet? I have a customer requesting this (use of Shockwave) along with a carpet cleaning. If so, should this be applied beforehand and allowed to work previous to the...

    Next Rug Cleaning

    That sounds like great advice, Dafloorman. I can relate to the straining part; presently my two car garage has been tied up for the weekend, covered by a tarp and rug with fans running, and with my lack of experience figure my results will be subpar. I dread every rug job. I appreciate your input!

    Next Rug Cleaning

    Quick follow-up to all of this. Would Pet Zone be a good option for the urine present in such a rug?
