Hello TMF veterans,

Just starting out and got a potential client that would like carpet cleaning for a residential apartment with 25 floors.

I'm thinking VLM might be the best option since there would be people walking in and out throughout the job, and maybe the quickest method also.

Would encapsulation + CRB be my best bet? Or should I use a cimex? (Heard that it voids warranty) there are quite a bit of urine stains and garbage bag leak stains on the carpets...Or should I just go with HWE?
Attached some pictures of few stains currently in the building...

Thanks!

I use the cimex for just about everything, customers (and myself) couldn't be happier! just make sure u use some good juice, and don't overwet it. It's low moisture, just till u see a light foam. Rick from releasit has some good videos on it.

Pretty sure warranty is void if installed in multi family housing isnt it?

Yeah commercial carpet isn't going to have a warranty. I'd still HWE it and then lightly encap. Results would be amazing.

In a few situations I have offered a demo so both the client and myself could see the results. Wouldn’t do this for anyone, but if it was a valuable account that I really wanted I would consider it.

We do quite a few of these and TM ground floors and scrub and run upper floors with rocket and red pads. Grease trails from leaky garbage bags almost never reappear with rocket.

Single 100' cord wide area vacuum for these jobs used zipper style

Honestly, I didn’t like to call some for cleaning my apartment. But as a single man, it was hard for me to do some things because I didn’t even know that they should be done. I thought that cleaning means just washing the dishes, clean off the dust and vacuum. Then my friends noticed that my windows were dirty, my curtains too, the kitchen cabinets were full of oil and food. Then I understood that I cannot do it alone anymore so I called at the home cleaning services and they provided me with the best cleaning I have ever seen in my apartment.
