LOL CLO2 is far more dangerous than they say. Look it up and regular exposure increases your risks to health problems.

If you use the nano and don't rinse it out it will turn the carpet orange?

Never had any problem with clo2 but you must be careful using the powder on nylon. The stronger you use it the more chances you are taking.

I use liquid Just gone on nylon, wool, and furniture usually at 12 oz. Powder on poly but like anything you must test first.

I use them both with encap deodorizers that have a nice scent/smell. Usually Bonnet Pro Omega Citrus or Vacaway Encapucide Lemon.

I have never used clo2 by pouring on carpet and soaking to the pad. I only use it in my encap to sanitize/deodorize carpet fibers. I use CRB to scrub carpet fibers to the backing and carpet is usually dry in 1-2 hours.

If pouring on carpet and soaking to pad you better use HWE and extract especially when using powder.

I pass on bad odor and heavily soiled carpets. They need HWE.

I don't make promises that I can't fulfill/achieve.

I no longer HWE. I'm all VLM now and don't take on jobs that need HWE.

Peter used Radical as a booster to NanoMax for the first time and it did a great job

It was the worst carpet cleaning I have done with VLM. Rental Property for long time customer. Cheap light grey poly that they put in rentals.

2 bedrooms and living room and a stairway with old berber carpet.
Living room and steps was bad but Steps cleaned up easy.

I only used 2 oz NanoMax and 2 oz Radical with very hot water and it came out beautiful. I was shocked. I could not have done better with a TM.

It took almost 3 hours but it had gum, wax, and red stains from the wax and lots of other stains.

I used my 13'' 175-300 rotary with a brush to scrub and then Ironman bonnets to extract. Love the speed of the 300. You don't realize how slow a 175 is until you use a 300. It's really nice having both speeds.

Yes deironized water boosts every thing. Been using for my spotters for years.

Excellent Supply has Vibe in stock and selling 10% off plus some DS2 and microfiber bonnets. That makes it $2426 and free shipping.

I'm tempted but I'm wondering what's going to happen in the coming months.

Marketing sanitizing with any of my cleaning has been keeping me busy.Clo2 has been my door opener and no extra charge. People want clean more than ever just have to show your cleaning value to them.

I buy my deironized from Wally World (walmart) $00.80 cents a gallon
I can't find it anyplace for close .80 a gallon. Do you mean distilled ??

Distilled water yes but not deionized. Buying bulk ?

I can't find that price on Walmart website

Have you used Omega citrus on dirty commercial cleaning?
No I use Releasit DS2 on dirty commercial.

Sometimes I will prespray with Releasit Punch hit it with a fiber pad and then put DS2 in my Sprayborg and use a microfiber with scrub strips.
