Use more Moon Dawg... not cutting it!I use it straight up on my pits.
i typically use ultrapac and mix it with the cherry deodorizer from bridgepoint. i have tried post spray but i seem to get better results mixing it with my prespray. it also helps with odors in your waste tank when you extractDo you just add it to your cleaner ? or do you apply after with a hydro force or a pump up sprayer? and do you really feel like your are truly deodorizing or just leaving a nice smell after cleaning
I am waking this thread back up again. I have received mix advice regarding deodorizer. I was told by my supplier that we really shouldn't be adding an oil based Deodorizer to Prespray. Those need to be gently misted in the room after you clean. I have a customer who loves the cherry Fragrance that I'm cleaning for soon. What are your thoughts? What is the proper and best way to apply deodorizer(topical)? How do I make sure that the customers can smell the fragrance after I leave? Should I use my fogger?
Perfect description Scott. Interesting that you too sprayed the popcorn ceilings (back when) For 20 years all I cleaned was vacants/empties and would always douche right above the entry door so when PM's showed the unit it would hit them right off the bat, nothing at all on the carpet!
- I always like to be cautious with applying deodorizers or any fragrance. What smells wonderful to one person can be obnoxious to another. So, I check with the client first.
- Any deodorizer or fragrance is going to have some oil in it. The fragrance comes from what is called essential oils. It takes very little percentage of oil to produce that fragrance but it is there.
- When deodorizer is added to the prespray it gets into the air during the spraying process. This makes the scent more noticed. It also gets mostly rinsed away in the rinse step. But there will always be some trace amount left If nothing was left ebhind there would be no odor. This small amount of oil will attract some soil, probably very little, but some soil. For this reason some cleaners don't want to apply deodorizer as part of carpet cleaning.
- If deodorizer is applied during the rinse step, there will be even more oils left behind than when used in the prespray. So, if I was going to apply deodorizer as part of the cleaning process, I would do so in the prespray.
- Another option is to use deodorizer after cleaning. It can be applied in places where it will never get on the carpet and attracting soil will not be an issue. Spray into any absorbent surface near nose level or above. I liekd to spray into wooden door fram or acoutical ceiling tile or mist the curtains (depending upon the material). Then the frgarance is in the room, lingers a while and is not on the carpet. But it does add one more step to the cleaning process.
