AmenBio Break as a pre-spray and Clean Free as a rinse will work well, especially in carpets with residue issues. Bio Break is a pre-spray that is easily rinsed out of carpet and Clean Free has the highest percentage of rinse agents in any of Bridgewater's 16 different rinses. The pH of Bio Break is around 9.5. This will be neutralized by soils. Clean Free has a pH of 10 but the ingredients that provide this pH are rinse agents easily removed by water especially at a 1 to 640 dilution. You should be around a pH of 7 when done. Using Flex ice will probably leave the carpet at a pH of 6. Clean Free has no surfactants and Flex Ice has a dynamic blend of surfactants. The surfactants promote a deeper cleaning than the Clean Free. I have explained differences that probably will not be noticed on most jobs, except by close observers.
Hard water will impact the performance of both Clean Free and Flex Ice. Hard water and high heat have been know to create sediment issues in Flex Ice which is why we have strongly advocated using soft water. However, at a 1 to 640 dilution with Salt Lake hard water (15 grains per gallon), over 2/3 of the phosphate in Clean Free can be bound up in softening water and not available for cleaning.
