How Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning Works
How Soil Affects Carpet
The Function Of Encapsulation Chemistry
Successful carpet cleaning addresses the sticky soil that binds to the carpet fiber. Effective encapsulation cleaning requires a detergent that's formulated with a good crystallizing encap polymer — as shown here (Releasit dried in a petri dish). As the carpet gets scrubbed, the soil detaches from the fiber. After the encapsulation agent dries, the soil is held in suspension. The encapsulated soil then releases from the carpet as the fiber flexes, and gets recovered through normal routine vacuuming.
Carpets Clean Up Easier & Stay Clean Longer
Carpet can retain a high appearance level when working with a high-quality crystallizing encapsulation detergent. The crystallizing polymer component resists soil. Thus a bright and clean carpet can be enjoyed day-in-day-out, and the life of the carpet can be extended accordingly. Common commercial carpet problems like wicking and recurring spill stains are also eliminated. And a good encapsulation system can yield high cleaning rates of 2,000-3,000 square feet per hour (or greater).
