Ok guys I have cleaned over 10 houses this week with a 175 and encapuclean o2. And A bonnett. IMO it worked well, the vac away products worked best for me after the post vac it looked great. Happy Customers all week
I am learning low moister but the biggest battle has been to not immediately compare it to what I have mastered and value it for its plus points. Thanks for Ryan Kettering and his help or I wouldnt event respect this method.
just open your eyes and actually try "encrap", you might actually like it
i laughed @ it my self years ago thinking how can a few thousand dollar pos out clean my mighty truckmount !!! how?!
well fast forward to the point where i sold my tm :AddEmoticons0423:
You guys are too funny with your analogies.
Answer this question; Why do you feel like you should encap in a residential setting?
What benefit does the CUSTOMER receive?
Do you REALLY feel like encap is the BEST you can do for that customer?
Kirby/Rainbow can sell an encrap machine to homeowners and they can do THE SAME QUALITY JOB THAT YOU CAN!!!
Anybody can drive an automatic!
why shouldn't i use it in a res setting? it does a fantastic job, all be it in some situations hwe might be a bit faster, but thats it...it can easily get the same results you can ! Add a steamin demon to your arsenal and you can handle any situation !
i spent quite a while proving this system to my self ! before even thinking of getting rid of the TM
i dont blame John G (padman) for not posting as heavily as he once did, the constant attacks from people like you just make a guy get to the point where its no longer worth posting lol haha if he did tho, you would be in for a real treat !
you claim you remove 90-95% eh stevie..( LOL ) ok in a perfect world if you did ..your still leaving a bunch of chemical in the carpet, and since you dont use a rinse... a breading ground for resoiling !
(by the way, did you know they make encap HWE products now??)
where as encap, whatever you dont remove via padding, its just a posative residue, simply crystalizing and vacing away!..ive tested it, if you use a high quality chem you actually remove allot
now you dont have to go to the extremes i did of selling my Tm, but seriously think of adding it to your arsenal of equipement Stevie, i personally know 2 aerotech owners that have both a cimex and orbot in the back ....hmm i wonder why?:AddEmoticons04259::AddEmoticons04259:
one of them is an IICRC instructor hmmm....
to techclean i like ur comments try encap u might actually like it im a hwe guy and am open to encap cleaning what machine and chemicals do u use i mainly do homes and small amount of commercial would like to do more commercial
Here is my two sense. 80% of the dirt in the carpet is dry. With a real good vacuum you can pull of a lot of it. I use a Kirby and a Certified Pile lifter. Depending on the condition of the carpet I will usually pre -spray and use either a orbital or rotary buffer with a Dirt Napper to agitate to carpet fibers. Afterwards I will use my VS LMX. I am still in shock how much dog hair etc that this machine will pull out of the carpets. If I am still not happy with the results I will go back over it with a Bonnet pad. I am convinced that when you combine two methods, either HWE or my VS with a bonnet cleaning afterwards you will get the best results. I lot of this is up to the operator and not the method. I believe that HWE or VLM works , it just what you prefer.
