Thanks Ted, the Gladiator pads are the result of a LOT of testing of various weaves and combinations of fibers.

The Glad pads are a tri-blend of synthetics plus cotton, they are thicker than the normal OP pads however because of how supple they are they still clean DEEP into the fibers unlike bonnets.

They absorb a LOT more soil somewhere between 2-3 times what a cotton pad will absorb, they cost 11 dollars each but uses go well over 100 per pad so they are more economical that regular cotton pads, it would take somewhere between 2-3 hundred uses on a cotton pad to beat the price as to what you clean and uses you get out of the gladiator pads.

They are LESS agressive, they are safe for the soft carpets as well as commercial carpets, they make the OP machine move MUCH easier, smoother, faster etc.

They cause MUCH less wear on the bearings of the machines because of the way they float on the carpet.

You use LESS water with them and your carpet are dry in minutes not an hour.

A few questions? To any O P guys!Pad Cleaning
1. Using the Gladiator pads can you use the same pre-spray as HWE use?
 
2. Where, does the water supply come from? How is it applyed?

3. I guess most have to go to the laundry mat to wash the pads, so
how many can you get in the average wash machine?
 
4. What detergent do you use to wash the pads?
 
I can see that this method would come in handy for banks , many other situations!
 
Thanks in advance for replies!            SmokeyAL

Hey Pad Man. I clean mostly apartments with a a truck mount or portable if i cant get hoses into the place. I hate dragging out the porty! As I'm sure you know, apartments can be filthy! Would Op cleaning be a good alternative to using the portable in a situtation like this? if so, do you think I could sell the apartment owners on shorter dry times? Sometimes people move in that day. What are typical dry times with your system and does it take much longer than hwe? Thanks alot, Anthony

Long Live the Orbital!

It rocks dude, especially with cotton pads.Headbang

and that's from a guy who was 100% truckmount steam-cleaning 4 years ago and couldn't be sold on low-moisture systems until encap products started showing up in my marketplace!

By the way Anthony, if I have apartments to do, bugger the porty!! I can take all I need up to the unit in one trip (owing to the fact that I've added a solution tank and pump to my machine, also speeds jobs up considerably with that setup), no hoses, wands, multiple trips up and down stairs and the machine is way easier to get up or down a flight of stairs compared to a big, bulky portable...

I must admit that The PADMAN's comments regarding testing really makes alot of sense from a common-sense stand point. And, on top of all this and other great intentions, I saw some of his cleaning results on some pretty darn and out dirty carpets and his word is true. And so was his machine.
 
No...........I do not sell his machines
 
No...........I'm not his brother-in-law
 
No...........I'm not joined at the hip in anyway.
 
But........................................................
 
 
YES my comments are true.

Are you in a high paying business or are you just a self employed low paid grunt who thinks this business provides dignity?

Just an opinion here. If you are marketing your company as a VLM encapsulation cleaning process and you describe the five steps to do that why you show a picture to advertise your bussines of a carpet cleaner rinsing the carpet using a wand. Should be there somebody runing an op machine.? Just to be consistent. Other than that is a nice web site. Good luck
