    Unusual browning issue with wool and viscose rug

    After reviewing more photos on this, It appears this may simply be more of a nap reversal issue than anything. The client is, well, hyper-aware of anomalies. Looking at this from another angle and the darkness disappears. A little light grooming after a light mist of rinse and hopefully we will...

    Unusual browning issue with wool and viscose rug

    After 38 years and never having had to buy something I damaged, I may have finally stepped into it. Ugh. My client has a new wool/ viscose rug (12x18) that had a significant crease across the center because the rug was folded up. It is approx 85% wool, 15% viscose, maybe 90%,10% (just don't...

    Help with spot removal for Floordesign luxury soft nylon carpet

    Thanks. It wouldn't be the first time I was tricked by a label also. I will test fiber and backing. That makes sense.

    Help with spot removal for Floordesign luxury soft nylon carpet

    For months, I have been frustrated with a client's new "luxury soft nylon" carpet, which looks and feels, and, most importantly, cleans more like viscose than any nylon I have ever cleaned in my 37 years of doing this! We get the spots out and rinse with All Fiber Rinse, they come back. We treat...

    Light smoke remediation

    Nevada, along with other states, is facing significant smoke from neighboring fires (thank you California!). Most homes have little odor that is noticeable, but allergy-like symptoms are more than normal. Do any of you have proven procedures / products to assist with this, beyond simply cleaning...

    Give your home a flu shot!

    Well, if it was just that easy! According to the GBAC (Global Bio-risk Advisory Council), whose expertise and research I trust far more, there are very few instances where fogging alone produces acceptable results when going after microbes (virus, bacteria, fungi). That is (primarily) because...

    H2O2 Fogging to mitigate CoVID19?

    Thank you for that, Mr. Kelly. Interesting...my mentor was a Mr. Kelly (we all just called him Kelly) from Milwaukee, WI. He was an amazing advocate of our industry. Anyway, I am finding that ihp (Ionized hydrogen peroxide) fogging seems to produce the best results, has recently been approved by...

    What chemicals will disinfect for Corona virus?

    Very interesting. What are your thoughts (coming back to the subject of the thread) on h2o2 fogging? I posted on the bio-hazard page some links to studies done regarding the efficacy of h2o2 fogging for room decontamination as compared with chlorine dioxide. To my uneducated brain...it seems to...

    What chemicals will disinfect for Corona virus?

    Agree...This will have a very large effect on all Americans...even the preppers who have stashed themselves out in the woods somewhere. My wife is immune compromised and we are getting treatments to improve her in the Phoenix area. But shopping here with 3 confirmed cases in the area (and who...

    What chemicals will disinfect for Corona virus?

    I can appreciate that. And you make a good point...many will probably die, not because of the virus itself but because of its effects on society...lay off induced suicide, assault in a Walmart parking lot, limited bed space at hospitals when your appendix ruptures, etc. There is an argument for...

    What chemicals will disinfect for Corona virus?

    Well....it is not silly if you happen to be one of those people who have an immune compromising autoimmune disease like Lyme, TB, Crohns or a host of others...like my wife has. Let us not get caught into the trap of..."it is only an issue for the sick and elderly"...like they are worth less than...

    What chemicals will disinfect for Corona virus?

    Thank you for that perspective, Scott! I have been closely following this since early January. My wife is immune compromised, with a weakness for lung infections. I posted below what I have found so far...basically revolves around h2o2 fogging. But i only know enough to get in trouble at this...

    What chemicals will disinfect for Corona virus?

    I have been wondering this myself. The GBAC, associated with the ISSA has significant resources for training and certification, and something called gMIST...still don't know what that is. They published an almost prophetical article last September that is very intriguing. Here it is...

    H2O2 Fogging to mitigate CoVID19?

    OK, CoVID19 is here and spreading rapidly. I am wondering who here knows anything about fogging H2O2 (Hydrogen Peroxide) to eliminate CoVid19 and other viruses/bacteria from surfaces in hospitals, buildings, etc? About a month ago I got an email from the ISSA about a convention with a class by...
