Prochem Europe has reported new business gains this winter with a system solution for interim cleaning using the encapsulation process.
Its polymer spray-and-brush process is a low moisture method whose soil release agents detach soil and other residues from the carpet or fabric fibres by binding with them.
As the polymer-based solution dries, it hardens to a brittle, crystalline structure, encapsulating or trapping soil and residues in the dried particle, that’s easily removed when the carpet is next vacuumed.
A dilution of Prochem’s Fibreclean with new formulation and fresh “ocean breeze” fragrance is sprayed lightly over the carpet with a low pressure sprayer and then brushed in with a pile brush or cylindrical brush machine.
This can also be used on hard-wearing upholstery, making it a particularly useful method of cleaning in transport environments such as trains and buses where quick drying is favoured.
Another effective soil-encapsulating spray solution from the company is Procaps. WoolSafe-approved and specially designed to help prevent re-soiling, Procaps incorporates a high quality encapsulation cleaning formula with a new lemon and lime fragrance.
“Of course, interim encapsulating maintenance solutions like these don’t actually replace a deep extraction clean,” says Prochem Europe sales manager Phil Jones.
“But carry them out at suitable intervals between cleans and they will help to maintain a carpet’s appearance, performance, and extend its working life.”
Phil points out that carpets can be dry in as little as 20 minutes with application times markedly reduced using the system.
“They are quick and less disruptive to use, opening up more opportunity to get on site and apply them,” he adds.
