How Does It Work?

As shown in this diagram, after being sprayed onto the carpets, the chemical begins to immediately surround or “encapsulate” soil particles. This causes the soil to release from the carpet fibers and remain suspended within the carpet. Within a short period of time, usually less then 30 minutes, the product dries or “crystalizes” and leaves the soil in a state that is easy to remove. Following this, the carpets are vacuumed, and the soil is removed.

Advantages of Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning

When deciding to use encapsulation, you should also consider the possible benefits or advantages of this process. Here are five reasons to choose encapsulation carpet cleaning for your next project.

1. Fast Dry Time

With our fast-paced lives, it can be frustrating trying to work around a wet carpet. Due to bad experiences with hot water extraction, many people have become concerned about dry time which has spurred an increase in the use of many dry carpet cleaning methods. With that said, one of the main advantages of encapsulation is that the carpets will be dry in almost every situation in around ONE HOUR. This means that by the time the job is finished, the carpets should already be dry. Along with that, there are other benefits caused by the reduced amount of water such as fewer spots “reappearing” or wicking back to the surface of the carpet, reduced chance of the de-lamination of the carpet, and reduced chance of over-wetting.

2. Cost Effective

One of the best reasons to use encapsulation is the low cost. The production rate for encapsulation is about double that of extraction, which means in general, it is about half the cost. This can add up to substantial savings, especially in commercial facilities, and can be used as a great tool to create cost-effective carpet maintenance plans.

3. Low Environmental Impact

In the cleaning industry, it is becoming increasingly important to find ways of reducing the environmental impact our products and process have during cleaning. Thankfully, encapsulation passes the test as an environmentally-friendly product because it is a very mild chemical & very close to neutral on the PH scale.

4. Minimal Disruption to Work/Living Space

Because of the fast dry time, encapsulation works great in busy homes and offices. Many people who have avoided carpet cleaning because the disruption to their lives can now have their carpets done and dry in under 1 hour. That means less wasted time and minimal disruption to your schedule.

5. Increased Effectiveness of Vacuuming

After your carpets have been cleaned by encapsulation, you’ll see continuing benefits for weeks or months to come, as the carpets will be easier to vacuum and maintain. The process of encapsulation assists in releasing soil from the carpets so that the vacuum is more effective in the removal of soil.
