The Need for Power Plus
With today’s fashion trends, comes the widespread use of white and light coloured cut pile and Berber style carpets. These light plain colours obviously show up stains and marks. On some fibres, these stains and overall surface dulling have been particularly difficult to remove or lighten - until now.
POWER PLUS has been developed, not only to boost the stain removing capability of carpet extraction liquid or powders, but to give an overall brightness to colours and remove the “grey look” in traffic lanes from white wool and the lower priced loop pile acrylic, polypropylene, polyester and old nylon carpets widely used today.
By adding POWER PLUS to your regular solution of SURGE in the extraction tank of portable extraction machines, you are in effect, triggering a chain reaction which liberates extra cleaning power.
The hotter the water, the greater benefit POWER PLUS gives you. Water temperatures of 70 degrees C for wool and up to 80 degrees C for synthetics are recommended.
How Does Power Plus Work
POWER PLUS works in three ways. It acts as a water softener to remove the “soap scum” and old detergent residues already on the carpet and to boost the performance of the cleaning agent you are using. It oxygenates the fibres thus killing bacteria and odour. Microscopic amounts of optical brightener are expelled onto the fibre creating higher fluorescence to whites and colours. Carpet actually appears brighter and new-looking.
POWER PLUS greatly increases the performance of truck mounted carpet cleaning equipment. Most operators find that adding POWER PLUS to a hot pre-spray solution gives incredible results on heavily stained hotel/club carpets; white wools and heavily soiled low cost man-made fibres. It also may be combined with SURGE extraction cleaner in the concentrate tank; however activity is dissipated on long storage of solution.
Portable Extraction Machines
By adding POWER PLUS to your cleaning tank, you are liberating extra cleaning power at a fraction of the cost of double passing. It gives you one pass cleaning even on the heaviest levels of soil. Just add your regular amount of SURGE then add the recommended amount of POWER PLUS. The difference will amaze you.
Advantages in a Nutshell
- Brightens colours and whites.
- Will not damage fibres at recommended dilutions.
- Helps remove anning stains like coffee, tea and fruit juice, reducing the need for extra spotting.
- Helps prevent browning of susceptible fibres like rayon, thin pile acrylic and jute backed heavily soiled wool.
- Acts as a potent germicide and deodorizer without leaving a residual odour of its own.
Hospital Application – Disinfection and Odour Control
Public and Private Hospitals will find the stain removing capabilities for medicines and other spillage plus germicidal activity ideal for reducing bacteria counts as well as destroying the odour source. When POWER PLUS is combined with SURGE and followed by ODABAN E application, you virtually ensure no odour return even with urine, vomit and faecal deposits.
Add your normal amount of pre-spray, e.g. 1 part SURGE to 15 parts hot water to your pre-spray unit then add 2 to 4 teaspoons POWER PLUS per 10 litre pre-spray tank depending on soil level; evenly pre-spray the whole carpet to ensure even appearance. Extract with hot water and SURGE at between 1 to 150/300 water depending on soil (water should be as hot as possible).
Add 4 teaspoons POWER PLUS for every 20 litres of hot water.
Heavy Stains/grey appearance
Add 8 teaspoons POWER PLUS for every 20 litres hot water.
