I am currently using prochem ultra pac traffic lane cleaner, and power burst for the nasty jobs. What is your guys go to pre spray for everyday residential jobs? I'm looking for something that may work better than these two, and at the same time smell better.

The dealer in the area is an interlink supply store, and I like to support him. So hopefully what you guys recommend, he carries.

Ive had great results with trafficslam on berbers. At 45 oz to the 1:8 hydroforce.

Flex with Citrus Solv is a great product, excellent for the nasties but probably stronge than is needed for every day residential work. I suggest either Bio-Break or Zone Perfect for moderate soil on residential carpet.

Ultrapac Trafficlean fragrance free/Matrix Grand Slam SC Fragrance free = same product. Our go-to residential is that and Prochem Dry Slurry through the truck followed by Prochem / Matrix All Fiber Rinse. It's been my dependable go to product for the past 24 years.

Too much product imo. Wow.
I know it sounds like a lot, but in reality it's still pretty concentrated even at that dilution. A standard Hydroforce 1:8 delivers a tad over 11 gallons of prespray. Price isn't really too bad either if it's as good as they say it is.

I do a few appts on just one jug. Most of the appts are olefin,cgd on a pad. It gets them really clean. I used pro10k and had to reclean with trafficslam. Maybe i deactivated the pro10k while mixing with high heat.

I had awesome results using attack by esteam 8 ounce for 4:1 injection sprayer. I would use it on traffic lanes spraying thoroughly and mostly I won't spray on the none traffic areas. I use an emulsifier through an injection as I rinse and works great all the time.

Grease eater from magic wand is a good everyday prespray. Smells very nice also.
I use it on about 95% of my jobs. Sometimes I'll boost it with peroxide or grout master if it's a nasty.

I am on my 4th case of Pro10K and I swear every case has been different :confused:
The last case I have is about useless, I used a fels bar to work a spot the other day and that spot was noticably cleaner than the rest. Not sure why every case is different but I hear there is another new version with citrus now.
