The Cimex Carpet Machine sets the industry standard for low moisture carpet encapsulation cleaning. This method of shampooing uses a polymer solution that encases or “encapsulates” the dirt particles.
The low moisture aspect of this approach means that it uses very little water compared to the more common hot water extraction technique. As such, you can feel good about reducing waste water and ultimately operating cost. That being said, the main reason to use this machine is the science behind the encapsulation process itself.
A frequent problem with regular carpet cleaning is that extractors use a soapy detergent that leaves behind a sticky residue. New dirt particles cling to this residue left on the carpet fibers, thus causing re-soiling. The encapsulation process creates a hard crystal shell around the dirt. Said dirt is then completely removed by vacuuming. Afterwards, the dust bags are neatly discarded. This stands in stark contrast to the dumping of many gallons of dirty water.
