I tried my Cimex on a restaurant when I first got it. It did pretty good but couldn't touch the TM for results and speed. The restaurant in the video was dirty but nothing like what most the ones we do are like. Not trying to burst your bubble Dave. He did good, really good, but I wouldn't rush out to buy a Cimex to do restaurants though. :)

The problem I have with using a Cimex and pads only on a filthy carpet is that, that is Top Down Cleaning as opposed to transferring soil onto a bonnet which would be, Bottom UP cleaning. You would enjoy the benefit of superior soil REMOVAL and you'd get it instantly. I have done both. There is no comparison.

Being VERY new to VLM, is it not the same thing....? Please school me on this.... NO sarcasm intended. And my next question would be, is Realesit DS2 a good product to use with a CRB in a commercial setting?

That was also straight encap tho with no type of immediate soil removal (bonnets). So you need to consider that. He needed one piece of equipment to do the job, alone, locked in to the building. There are a lot of benefits for everyone there.

I'm saying using ANY machine with pads only -vs- Any machine using bonnets, the machine using bonnets wins every time. Common sense must prevail.

There are many ways to use VLM. VLM simply means Very Low Moisture. How you choose to use that VLM is up to you.

Some folks just spray and brush and they're done. Works fine for maintenance. Not so much in filthy establishments.

Other folks like me prefer using carpet bonnets to instantly remove the soil rather than let the encap solution do all the work.

Then there is the Dry Foam method....dual process methods. An Orbital machine.....a rotary machine. heck....US Products advertises their portable extractors as Low Moisture.

So you see Jeff, there is more to VLM than most people think.
