No peroxide. Cimex with TMF encap and blow them away!

Rob, is your encap sold at interlink or can I order it from your store? I don't remember seeing it last time.

Remember the makeup of soil in each situation...
Here, you have salt (sweat) body oil and whatever alkali has built up from maintenence cleaning.
Yer strategy shoukd be oil remover and acid...
Id probably attack this in two cleanings. One right after the other...
Id shower feed a citrus mix through a 175 on a soft nyon brush,..then rinse with the biggest sx you have.. Careful about slopping too much near cracks.

Then hydroforce some UPT , scrub w/175 again and rinse with clear...
Use a few airmovers...

Yer issue going forward is mostly the alkali salts.
You dont rinse those off well and itll look starchy when it dries

A micro blue bonnet looks like it would work if it don't catch a corner .

I'd try "ice it" and some "Wiwax" do they still make that stuff? The Wiwax always worked...but the ice it was questionable...

The flooring that's all one piece with specks in it, clean up a lot easier than these square mats. I tested stuff today, scrubbing with a cimex/encap and then carpet pre spray/cimex with brushes and extracted with a glide wand. The sx12 was tuff to move, but may have to be the choice, to avoid the lines I left when it dried. Past the fan was untouched, so there's a vast difference and the owner was happy, but I'm not.

I'm getting the 360xL delivered tomorrow with the carpet and tile brush heads. Maybe with that and my 870ss, I'll make a dent on the mats.
