Low Moisture Encapsulation Cleaning
Advantages in Green

Hot Water Extraction Cleaning
BAD in Red!

Low Moisture:
Each gallon of diluted detergent can clean approximately 300 sq ft of carpet. Dries quickly so the carpet can be put back into service quickly.
Higher Volume of Water Used:
With its ability to flush a large quantity of water through the carpet, hot water extraction is an effective way to rinse a carpet but takes longer to dry.
The low-moisture encapsulation method (or encap method as it's often called) is a variation of the old "shampoo method". The carpet is scrubbed with a cylindrical brush machine called the Brush Pro. As the carpet is scrubbed, the soil that was attached to the fiber is released from the carpet fiber into the environmentally friendly encapsulation solution. Today's better quality encap detergents are built with a crystallizing polymer that encapsulates the soil. After the carpet dries, the encapsulated soil can be extracted from the carpet during the post-vacuuming process.
The hot water extraction method (or steam cleaning method as it's often called) injects water into the carpet through spray jets. The water is  recovered through a vacuum orifice as it's applied. The affect of this process can be compared to the rinse cycle of your washing machine. To facilitate cleaning, a strong chemical detergent pre-spray is applied to the carpet prior to cleaning, and some level of agitation to the carpet is normally applied. Then the carpet is rinsed using the hot water extraction method.
It's FAST!  High production cleaning can be accomplished with the encap method. Cleaning rates of 2,000-3,000 sq ft per hour can be achieved with encapsulation. This can be very helpful in larger commercial settings. Wicking and recurring spill stains can also be eliminated.
Wicking and recurring spill stains are a common problem with commercial glue down (CGD) carpets. The crystallizing detergents employed and low moisture attributes of the encap method help to eliminate these problems.

Encapsulation makes it simple to maintain commercial carpets and keep them looking cleaner longer over an extended period of time.
Hot water extraction is a good way to rinse a carpet of its contaminants. Since the hot water extraction method can employ countless gallons of water during the cleaning process it is possible to flush a large quantity of soil from the carpet during cleaning. For this reason it is recommended to supplement encapsulation cleaning with periodic hot water extraction cleaning. It is commonly seen that the need for hot water extraction cleaning can be greatly reduced when a good program of encapsulation cleaning is being performed.
Soil Resistance:
Many people hold off cleaning their carpets as long as possible because they've always heard that the carpet will quickly re-soil following cleaning. This condition can occur with traditional cleaning methods. It's impossible to recover 100% of the detergent with any method of cleaning. Detergents act like dirt magnets - or sponges. That's what detergents do. So any detergent left in the carpet will continue to attract soil. With good encap chemistry the detergent is balanced with a crystallizing polymer. So everything on the detergent side of the table is complemented with a polymer on the other side of the table. There is no sticky residue that can attract soil. In fact the polymerized detergent will actually RESIST soil. A good polymeric encap detergent can even consume detergent residues that were left in the carpet from previous cleanings. And some encapsulation detergents may even have an additional built-in fluoro-chemical carpet protector in the formula.
Soil Resistance:
It is impossible to rinse all of the strong pre-spray detergent from the carpet. Not even the best truck-mount in the world can rinse every trace of detergent residue.

To illustrate this: picture taking a gallon of red paint. Add 5 gallons of water. What do you have? Red water.
Add another 50 gallons of water. What do you have? Reddish water. Add an additional 100 gallons of water. What will you have? The red color will still be observable. Hot water extraction is a process of addition and subtraction. The thought presented here is that it's nearly impossible to add enough water to fully dilute all of the detergent. At some point you leave behind a diluted quantity of detergent (hence the example of the red paint). This helps us to appreciate why carpets can sometimes re-soil quickly following cleaning. Hence it's critically important to rinse the carpet as thoroughly as possible to dilute and extract as much of the pre-spray detergent from the carpet during hot water extraction cleaning. Using a good encapsulation Hot Water Extraction detergent can eliminate the possibility of attracting more soil - because the detergent is balanced with crystallizing polymer that won't attract more soil. A further benefit to using a good encap detergent is that any soil residues that may be left in the carpet following the cleaning can continue to be recovered during the post-vacuuming process. Encapsulation chemicals similiar to low moisture cleaning work best to prevent soiling.
In A Commercial Setting:
Encapsulation is quickly becoming the most sought out method for maintaining commercial carpet today. As mentioned above: Encap is fast. Encap is a low moisture method. Encap eliminates wicking and recurring spill stains. Encap helps carpets to stay clean longer between cleanings. It can also be employed with minimal costs using a scrubber and cost effective detergents. With encap, building security is increased since it's not necessary to leave doors to the building open during cleaning.
In A Commercial Setting:
Hot water extraction has the greatest potential to flush contaminants from the carpet in a single cleaning as mentioned above. And it's recommended that periodic Hot Water Extraction cleanings are included at intervals as a supplement to encap cleaning.

Bad: There may be some issues with wicking and recurring spill stains on commercial glue down carpets when Hot Water Extraction is employed, because the volume of water injected may affect deeply embedded soil at the base of the carpet fiber.

Care should be given to thoroughly rinse pre-spray from the carpet so that re-soiling can be minimized (using an encap Hot Water Extraction detergent can be helpful). If a truckmount unit is used doors will need to left open. Long hose runs from the parking lot to the area being cleaned may also present challenges.
Impact On The Environment:
A single gallon of water can clean 300 sq ft of carpet so there's minimal water being consumed. And there is no discharge water heading to the sewage treatment plant. The encapsulated soil is recovered from the carpet as dry-soil during post-vacuuming.

A good encapsulation detergent can be formulated without requiring strong solvents or other potentially hazardous ingredients.
Impact On The Environment:
Hot water extraction can consume a very high volume of water (perhaps hundreds of gallons for a typical commercial job). The water that's extracted during cleaning is laden with chemicals and contaminants. If the water is properly discharged into the municipal sewer system, it is now spent water that will receive sewage treatment. If a truckmount unit is employed, the engine will be left running during the cleaning which consumes fuel and discharges carbon monoxide and other pollutants into the environment.
Selecting The Correct Tool:
There's no absolute "perfect method" for every situation. Like tools in a toolbox - a professional carpet cleaner will examine the carpet and the building's requirements and then select the appropriate cleaning method(s). All methods have their place and they each have unique benefits in different settings. Encapsulation is perfect for keeping a commercial carpet looking its best on a day-in day-out basis, and periodic hot water extraction is an ideal way to flush a heavily soiled carpet. The two methods complement each other and can be compared to a good marriage - you don't want to have one without the other. Together they can provide a balanced commercial carpet care program that maximizes the carpet's appearance and extends its useful life.

Upholstery Cleaning

The Cleanrite Upholstery Cleaning Process

Although there are many different ways to clean upholstery, the end result of each method is very different.

Our Encapsulation process is unique for many different reasons.

First, when cleaning upholstery it’s important to know the type material being cleaned. If not, you run the risk of permanently damaging the fabric. Our technicians are trained to clean upholstery correctly and understand the importance of making sure the process achieves results safely!

Second, we test all fabric before cleaning. Our custom cleaning solutions are fabric, people & pet safe! These products will not damage or fade your fabric and leave no chemical residue or odor. Our process is the most advanced cleaning method to clean upholstery safely with no adverse effects. Our equipment is maintained and cleaned daily for optimum performance.

Third, Cleanrite technicians fully understand that certain fabrics are extremely delicate and fragile.  We go that extra mile to not only clean, but also restore your fine-looking upholstery items.  Cleanrite technicians will go over all your best choices for your upholstery items.
Pet Stains and Odors
When pets are allowed on the furniture they easily can create a mess of stains, dander, and pet hair. Also, Pets can leave unpleasant odors that latch onto fabrics. To eliminate pet odor from your upholstery fabrics, bacteria needs to be cleaned properly to remove pollutants from the fabric.

In all situations, after a round of effective encapsulation cleaning, your fabrics will look brighter and cleaner!  Call the pros!
Effects of Dirty Upholstery
There are many effects of dirty upholstery. Many of them are due to bacteria growth over time. The bacteria is caused by spilling drink beverages or eating on furniture. Other forms of contamination are from:
• pet dander,
• dust & dust mites,
• and even mold & mildew (furniture in humid conditions)
• and finally, daily use.

These issues continue to get worse if not treated and can cause health problems (common cold & allergens).

Allergies and Upholstery Cleaning
Many people have allergy issues year round (high levels of pollen). Pollen is similar to the same type of allergy issues a dirty chair or sofa can cause. These symptoms can often be decreased dramatically by having your carpet and upholstery cleaned. Upholstery that has not been cleaned will release particles of dust and any other matter that resides on the furniture. The removal will ensure a healthier environment.

Upholstery Cleaning – How Often?
As mentioned, there are many benefits to clean upholstery. But, how often should you have it cleaned?

The answer is every six months.

Unfortunately, bacteria is everywhere and can begin to grow in a short period of time, especially on furniture that is used daily. Eating, drinking and poorly filtered air can increase the bacteria flow into your home. Your sofa, chair, ottoman etc… are a perfect breeding environment for these types of issues.

Our Green Certified, highly trained technicians and custom cleaning solutions will remove most stains, harmful bacteria caused by drink spills or food contamination. Thus, leaving your home cleaner and healthier.

Automotive & RV Cleaning

Automotive & RV Cleaning & Detailing

At Cleanrite Cleaners, we have a new way to clean your vehicles upholstery and carpets.  We are using the most up to date cleaning system available, encapsualtion.

Encapsulation cleaning for carpet and upholstery is the combination of an older process with new chemistry.  The process may look like shampoo cleaning but the results offer many advantages.

What is encapsulation cleaning?
Encapsulation is a low moisture cleaning method for carpet and fabric upholstery. It has been widely accepted for commercial carpet cleaning and is beginning to see more use in upholstery cleaning and auto detailing.

A detergent solution emulsifies, dissolves and suspends the various types of soil. Gentle agitation using a brush, sponge or bonnet dislodges soil from the fabric or carpet pile. As the cleaning solution is drying, a polymer encapsulates or surrounds both the soil and the fibers being cleaned. This polymer coating is smooth.  When both the dirt and the individual fibers have this smooth coating, soil does not stick but easily releases from the fiber to be vacuumed away.

The polymer that is left behind on the fibers reduces or eliminates stains wicking back to the surface. Future soils releases from the fabric easier thereby slowing resoiling.

In addition to staying cleaner longer , encapsulation Cleaning offers the advantage of quick drying, normally under one hour and often as quickly as 15 minutes.

The Process
As with any proper cleaning of fabric or carpet, the first step is thorough dry vacuuming. This is particularly important with encapsulation cleaning as any soil not removed by vacuuming must be encapsulated. More soil means more cleaning agent, more moisture and more time to get the desired results.

Apply to a small area at a time. Apply enough to dampen the fabric but not get it wet. This is key to getting the fabric clean without wetting through to all the soil hiding below the surface of the fabric.

Excess foam and soil can be wiped away with clean towels. This step is optional. Carpet and floor mats can be heavily impacted with soil. Thoroughness with vacuuming prior to this step will save a lot of time here. Otherwise, have plenty of cotton towels handy.

Spots, stains and soil will begin to fade as the cleaning solution dries and the encapsulation polymer begins to form.
