I was reading Jeff Bishops book "More answers then you have questions ". And reading about fiber abrasion and dulling of the carpet. And how the carpet looks perfect wet but when dry the dark traffic patterns come back. Reason being the moisture in the carpet is filling the abrasions. I'm one of those who like Encap but don't think I can use it on everything. And if doesn't replace yearly HWE. I have found myself on very dirty and worn carpets coming back with encap as a finish once the carpet is dried. Because it does change the optics of the carpet. It is especially true with a clean carpet. When it comes to bonneting I am not a huge fan. Mostly because my work has only given me 2 bonnets to work with!!! Anyone work with optics and abrasion issues. And what methods have you found effective. Right now I'm using the cimex, but on a clean carpet I hate dumping that much chemical into the carpet.
