Well guys, I just came back from the IICRC Carpet Cleaning certification class.
During the class we compared various methods of cleaning, marking each on things like ease of use, performance,set up cost, ongoing expence,customer perception etc etc.We then tested all of the different machines, so that all the operators had a chance to try them.We used encap, bonnet, hwe both truck and porty, shampoo, dry foam and dam.

While the scores were not scientific, they do show that bonnet is a viable means of cleaning...

the scores were

bonnett    31
dam         22
Shampoo  26
dry foam   25
encap       30
hwe          29

I know all the hwe guys will scream, but the main reason it scored lower was set up cost and ongoing expence.But what was more suprising, especially as I went on the course with the idea of moving to hwe, is that on a large dirty carpeted surface, that was split into different sections, the bonnet out cleaned them all...

I am posting this on the bonnet and truck mount pages, I hope we can get a fair reaction from both sides

Hey pbm

I have been using the bonnet for a while now, its cheap to get into, and it works.
Only issue is on some twisted yarns, it can untwist them, so stay clear.

To be honest if the results of the individual tests were listed, truck mount came out top on one crucial vote, customer perception.And if you have carpets that are really trashed, then hwe is the way to go, so I intend to get either a good porty, or a decent truck mount, sell the ass out of the truck mount, but when possible use the bonnet.

Good luck

Brian

I guess all the classes are different?

The guy who instructed our class was excellent, while we did not do any hands on burt tests, he didi do a lot of other stuff.If you get a chance to take one of his classes do, I have been in classes and confrences all around the world, and this guy made it enjoyable,fun and informative.

I think he used to be a president of iicrc, he wrothe the hard surface stardard and training.His name is Dane Gregory.

ya i own a 100% pure organic carpet cleaning buisness. i make my own solution out of aged sea plants. it has such a high secretion of natural enzymes that it digest EVERYTHING in your carpet. it is only best as a left in cleaner, so the only clenaing that really works the best is the bonnet method.
