At the time of this encounter I had just ventured into the very low moisture method of carpet cleaning that we are using now. If I had been hired the next day I most confidently would have gone in there with my truckmounted steam super extractor and melted the grease out and taken it with me, only to have been called back in a few days to do it again like the first guy...
Really greasy carpet when cleaned with hot water extraction will always re-soil. Why? The grease gets so embedded into the backing of the carpet that as the surface gets steam washed and vacuumed by the truckmount, the backing still has a lot of grease in it. The surface fibers dry faster than the backing and then the process of wicking takes hold and voila! the grease gets pulled up the strands into the face fibers and you get to start all over again. Fun huh? This stuff needs to be taken off in layers, and unless you hook up some serious heated fans you will fight it and fight it. How do I know? I've done it lots of times this way, and clients do not like to pay for call backs, and I don't like to do them either. Neither party wins with a call back.
As time has gone on this year with the introduction of our new very low moisture carpet cleaning process, we have gotten very comfortable with the encapsulation detergents that are available and feel that we have a good enough handle on which cleaning solutions to use when and where. Here are some pics to document how this job went...
