Welcome to TMF! Vac away use to have a sample kit they would send, might want to loom into it.
Since you will be doing 70% residential and 20% commercial what is the other 10% going to be?

I have tried several brands and I prefer the encapsulation products that Excellent Supply sells.

Are you diluting at 10ounces per gallon Rob? That's a lot of product which also makes it an expensive product! Are you using it on both residential and commercial?

I have been using it at 8oz per gallon mostly on commercial carpet though. I have also been using Bonnet Pros esp for the rat nasty or oily jobs.
