    Used the Xerion in my business several years ago. The results were nothing special.

    My current favorite encapsulation products are the Encapuclean line.

    I've used it before and nothing special. I use Atomic its a powder and mixes at half an ounce per gallon. Its the best one I have used. Bonnet pro also works very well.

    The question that I would ask about any powder claiming to be an encapsulate is the level of concentration. Powdered formulas are by their nature are generally limited to 10% liquid if the encapsulate liquid (am not aware of any encapsulate in powder form and I have looked) can even be absorbed into any powder. Double strength encapsulates will generally have 3 times the amount of the encapsulate raw material than can be absorbed into a powder. So in this case a liquid will be more concentrated in terms of the key ingredients than a powder. Another option is that it is not an encapsulate at all and like soap free products can be used as a pre-spray for bonnet applications. The performance may meet your cleaning needs, but will not perform the second part of encapsulation which is soil resistance requiring residue of encapsulating polymers. The article link below discusses the differences between powders and liquids.

    It does the second part very well.

    The issue that I have is that as a building service contractor I am not cleaning the carpet and then leaving for 6 months to a year. I see the carpet daily and I'm finding that the products I've used cause the carpets to resoil. Yes I've used the major brands. Yes I pre and post vacuum. Yes I mix it according to specs. Frustrated.

    An observation that I have made over the years is that the balance between encapsulation and extraction has changed. Encapsulation is being used far more than extraction. I have found in my own house that I tend to delay extraction in favor of encapsulation because it is too easy. I would suggest that every time you get a new account that you start with extraction. In this way you start the new customer with residue removal. Often you should start with a soap free product as it activates and uses surfactant residues to help clean the carpet. Also if you have a building with 4 floors, you may need to extract the bottom floor twice a year where you may only need to extract the rest of the building once every 2 years. My point is that mix extraction and encapsulation so that the highest traffic areas are extracted more than the other areas. If you are able to empty the sink then you should see treated areas stay cleaner longer than untreated areas.
