Enviro & Safe

Not so long ago most people had very little belief in these kinds of cleaning products and claimed they were overpriced. Suprisingly enough today they are less costlier than the older regular formulas. Due to the fact of newer technology that does not demand petroleum as part of the new formulas.

Mr. and Mrs. consumer and industry are now on-board more so than ever demanding safer Enviro.

The question is "Are You On Board?" If not, you may be left in the dust.'

Kleen Kuip is always striving to keep you our customer informed, up-to-date and loooking good.

True that. I just wish HD DFC were available in California. I'm running out of my four-gallon free sample. Bridgepoint is coming out with a line of GreenSeal products. Hopefully, they'll be as good.

I was the only one in San Diego who was aware of it, or at least cared. I only knew about it because of this forum, and I don't think anybody else in my area comes to this forum. My supplier wasn't even aware of it. I had to talk to the Chemspec Rep when he was visiting. He made a special trip from Vegas to drop some off with my supplier, but he never got around to sending the sample-size containers to divvy up the four-gallon pail--law requires that it be dispensed in legit labeled containers. Since I was the only one who ever asked about it anyway, they eventually just shrugged their shoulders and gave the whole pail. They still don't know when they'll get the product in, and they're fully pushing the Prochem line of green products right now.

I have tried both the DFC and reg products from what I have seen they don't work as well, or may be I just get the really dirty sh*t.  Did a side by side test with green vs reg there wasn't much comparison.  Has any one had good luck with green products on dirty carpet?

Nope, only clean the clean carpet. Ermm

A lot of people here have had good luck with DFC, especially Heavy Duty DFC. If I need a boost, I may add a little Citrus Solv.

Yes, but I didn't get into the carpet cleaning business because I'm an idealist. If I need to step outside the "green" a little bit in order to break up more difficult soils, I will. For those customers who use us especially because we're green, I'll disclose anything I might consider using that isn't green. Most people don't mind the idea of having a little bit of a citrus-based solvent used here and there, and most like the smell of oranges that comes with it. The perception of the customer is the most important thing.


Posted By: hcciam
Date Posted: 18/June/2007 at 11:09am
"Perception" what a novel concept. 
What's this company promoting "safe, natural cleaning products" but their main ingredient is d'limonene!  Now, if memory serves it wasn't that long ago that everyone was posting about the carpets resoiling cause they couldn't get the residue from the d'lim out of the carpet (they were doing what Chem Who does, 150PSI, fast wanding, ie RX, not a lot of rinse and working tooooooooooooo fast)  Isn't that what this cirtus company is doing??
Also, when I took my WHIMIS I was told that d'lim is a bugger to get out of your body if it gets absorbed. 
BUt, because it comes from and orange and smells good, it is "perceived" as a safe natural product. 
The majority of cleaner's actual cleaning is "perceived" as good by the custy as well ie it looks clean.

Hey, I'm with you. I am there to clean the carpet.  I will use a product that is safe for me and for my client but it HAS to clean.  If not... bye  bye.

Date Posted: 18/June/2007 at 2:09pm
On another note, I've been trying out the new Bridgepoint line of green products. They work well, better than HD DFC it seems. The problem is they have no green certifications, the dilution rate isn't as good, and it foams up.


Posted By: hcciam
Date Posted: 18/June/2007 at 11:36pm
I actually like using the citrus myself.  I understand its challenges but I ensure that I give things a thorough rinse so none of it is left, or as little as possible. 

I'm waiting to try a new prespray from Les Judson, an O2 cleaner that apparently doesn't need boosting.  PD is going to be trying it as well.  Looks very promising.
   

That link to the dude talking about Citruso is really talking out of his butt!!
Hydrodri rotaries don't deep clean. Their "product" is cleaner, dryer, safer than "chemical" cleaning. I wonder what he calls d'lim?  Isn't it a "chemical"??? Even O2 is a chemical, well, technically an element.

My customers for the most part just was clean carpet.  That means looks clean.  They don't care how, any method, equipment or chemicals will do the trick.  Just give it to them at a price they like.  Right now, that's $89 for LR and DA or $189 for 3 bedroom house.  Telling them I use green chemicals might ease their conscience a little but it is no deal breaker.

So I am using a rotary shampoo process which cuts the time needed in half.  The only people that care are other carpet cleaners who think they have the only right technique but they aren't paying me and last I checked there is only one name on the business licenses.  So other than being an annoyance they are just sufferers of jaw flapping, a treatable disease.

Customers opinions count but only as they apply to the job I did (past tense) for them.  As long as they got a clean looking carpet out of the deal, I did right by them.

I've found that after I explain what "clean" really is, my clients appreciate the time and effort put into cleaning their carpet.  They aren't so much worried that the products I use are green, just as you said, they want to know they have a clean carpet.  Many have tried other methods and weren't happy. I've been finding that a price on the high side weeds out most of the jobs I don't want to clean anyway, and if its a nasty place and they have the money, I'll put in the work and blow their socks off. 

BUT the cleaning agents need to work. On a trashed place, green is the last thing I worry about.  Even in normal residential, if I can't trust the soln to do the job, I won't use it.  I'll find something that is close but does the job. Till the manufacturers come up with "true green" that actually works, I'll keep going as norm.  2008 is shaping up well, PTL

Uh hum- I do use green for exactly that reason.  In fact, I use ProChem's Axiom line and it is great to work with.  Check it out.  Sometimes I use Ecogent just to be different. 

But because most people think green means settling for a weak alternative I find no reason to make the fact that I choose life over an unnecessary early demise a benefit to the customer.  I only use harsh chemicals where the filth demands an unorthodox approach.

You assumed and you know what that does.  I presume from your defensive posture that you have your favorite line of green.  Care to share that kind of information?

Oh in case you are wondering, there is a carpet AND upholstery shampoo in the Axiom line.  Just thought it would be nice to mention that fact.

I give a sh*t about my health and the environment. BUT I also give a sh*t about doing a good job.  Most of the "so called" green stuff doesn't clean worth sh*t, as yet.  Not to mention, who says the stuff is "green"?!  Green compared to what? Does it really biodegrade; whats really in it?
I use the safest product that I can find thats safe for me, safe for the client, safe for the environment, BUT it has to clean efficiently.

Do your homework.  Get educated about what is green and what groups of trained experts determine them as green.  And then research and test the products out there.  In Prochem's ad for Axiom it says "We made it mean, then we made it green".  I know what they are saying because I met with them and got the whole story.  And I get better results from that line than I do any others. 

It is better to remain silent and be thought the fool than to open ones mouth and remove all doubt.

Get informed then you are qualified to discuss green.  Otherwise you can bet a little bit of knowledge can be dangerous to your business.

Yes, I can apreciate yourcomments based on info given here. However, to say I've not investigated is an ass/u/me tion on your part.  Last year at Connections Prochem had a seminar where they were praising and talking up the Axiom line, all the good points.  Later on the show floor I asked Joe (I think thats the Chemists name) what the "down" side was.  He simply replied "They don't work as good."  Now thats from the chemist! 

So its a lot of trials on customer's carpets to find something that "cleans".
Right now I'm using the O2 system and it works great. I was using Powder Power before that. Suspend free before that.  They each work but might not be classified as "green" as some of these others.

Whats that product, has a pic of a beluga whale? Thats probably even more "green" than Axiom.

I have contacted Prochem for their side of the story because Axiom is so highly recommended by the area IICRC instructor.  But, he is an instructor and Joe (or whatever) told you he was the chemist which makes him the authoritative figure.  I appreciate the information, Ron.

Personally, I went green in order to have a niche. At the time, I also wanted a prespray that would double as a bonnet/encap and hwe solution, most of which were green. Most of my client base uses us because they like our work. The green issue is a bonus, not a deal breaker. That said, I do have a contingent within my customer base that found us because they were searching for a green carpet cleaning service. Keep in mind that the marketability of "green" varies by region. I'm in Southern California, and green products and services are quickly gaining popularity here, especially among high income homeowners in downtown high-rises and beach communities.  If I lived in Jerkwater, Arkansas, I'd market differently.

Re: "i will not sacrifice quality at any cost"

I agree, more than that, I think that there are enough things in this world to make our life shorter, so environment friendly carpet cleaners are the ones to use each and every treatment. They are no so expensive anymore either. If you compare between the quality of green cleaning products and the quality of the regular cleaners, the gap in price is meaningless compare to the results you will be getting. I have the entire http://www.carpet-cleaners.us/ - carpet cleaners resource dedicated to this and many other related topics.

Generally a company that doesn't have the prices shown and is selling direct is not going to do well against the competition.  That as I see it is a big problem for Ultrachemlabs - that and the fact that they have spelling errors on an otherwise nicely designed site.

thats something that always bugs me.  Just how effective can a cleaner be if it's safe enough to drink ?? I know there is LOC from Amway and Shaklee has a safe cleaner, but they really don't work well on carpet.

SO where is the sacrifice, a little less green to get the job done, or more green with not as good a clean?

Oh, so Ultrachem is another MLM business like Shaklee, Amway and a few thousand too many to mention?  Got it.   I'll stick with the proven chemical companies using dependable distribution chains, thanks.  Since no one speaks of Ultrachem here and none of the major distributors carry the stuff, I guess it doesn't have a big following.  Maybe you can turn that around.

I've used Ultrachem for about 6 years,,,,,,,,,,it is THE BEST  chems I've ever used.
 
and when you use their system you can boost it for nasties without going butyl
 
when you use the prespray as a spotter you can take out gum,rust and MANY other stains
 
works great on upholstery and can also be used for bonneting
 
and I'm using a porty so the machine probably has nothing to do with it

Hey all.. I recently purchased a case of Benefect's Impact Carpet Cleaner from Ted and the gang. I work in a 125 bed long term care facility here in Central Ontario. We have approx. 100,000 sq.ft. of Powerbond carpet. We thought we would try a "green" product as we are concerned for our residents' IAQ. Impact is awesome!!! We have several staff members and residents who are extremely chem-sensitive. ZERO complaints about the product and it was used as a spray-on Pre-treat, HWE, and also as our full time interim maintenance program. This stuff pulled out deep down"crap" (literally given our facility lol) that I didn't even know was there!! If you are looking for a really great green product, try the Impact. You will NOT be dissappointed.

I'm not going to say anything that hasn't already been said about environmentally friendly cleaning products Sleepy. What I do want to say is how effective they work. We all know that they will help us stay away from harmful chemicals which are in the majority of commercial cleaning products. I was very surprised on how effective natural cleaning products are. I'm the type I have to see something to believe it. If I read a thousand people saying something works I typically won't believe them until I try it out myself.LOL

I used to use Ultrachem when it first came out.  Used Clean and Neutralizer, best one I liked was the Protector.  The ONLY reason I was using it was to qualify for BCBC Buildings cleaning contract.  Apparently the owner was dating BCBC's owner's daughter Shocked and the ONLY product they would allow used was Ultrachem.

After using it for a while, burning my skin with the Neutralizer or Clean, one of them darned near took my skin off, and getting "OK" results, I moved on to better products.

I was using ZEP Prep, excellent cleaner but has butyl.
Switched to Powdered Power, and oxygenated citrus cleaner, safe and also SOA approved. Green too I believe.
Now I'm using O2, sodium borate and almost food grade delimonene.  Works excellent.

Just looked up UC Labs.  Here's the carpet cleaning procedures:
Procedures for Extraction with truck Mount Extraction Equipment
1. Thoroughly vacuum the carpets to remove lose soil particles.
 
2. Wherever other chemicals have been used you must thoroughly flush the full system equipment before using Ultra products.
 
3. Mix Clean at 64 ml per liter (8 oz per gallon) of water in a pump up sprayer. Add Neutralizer to the solution at 8 ml per liter (1 oz per gallon). 16 ml per liter (2 oz per gallon) for carpet that is heavily soiled.
 
4. Pre-spray the area to be extracted. Limit the pre-sprayed area to the area that can be extracted in about 15 minutes time.
 
5. Add Liquid Extract to the extractor solution tank at 8 ml per liter (1 oz per gallon) of water. Add the solution to the required amount of warm water in the chemical feeder tank. If the carpet is extremely soiled, add Neutralizer at 8 ml per liter (1 oz per gallon). (If powder Extract is used, pre-mix in warm water 16 ml per liter (2 oz per gallon) (4 liters) of water metered at the wand.)
 
6. Begin extraction of the pre-sprayed area after 5 minutes dwell time. The total pre-sprayed area should be extracted before 15 minutes have elapsed.
 
Note: Extract should be used with warm water to enhance the optimum use of the fabric softeners within the formula. Warm water enhances the cleaning ability of the chemical and will also promote faster drying time of the carpet.
Quantity of Chemicals may be reduced after 3 cleanings with Ultra Chem Products. See directions for details.
 

8 ozs/gal???  
WOrk with an area I can clean in 15 min?  By the time I prespray an area, groom it, and start rinsing, 15 min goes by pretty quick.
Depends on their cost.  I'd have to change the way I clean to accomodate not letting this stuff dry!

Bridgepoint finally came out with a green encap. Better dilution, better cleaning. For prespray, I've tried a lot of the green stuff out there and compared them with some of the mainstream presprays, such as Pro's Choice Extreme Clean. I always end up going back to HD DFC. Colorless, odorless, and cleans like a champ. Low VOC's on Axiom? Try no VOC's. I think they clean the same.

Have you ever given a try for organic products? Natural, good quality, safe for you and the planet.

The DFC range pretty good

Don't know whether you would consider Pureclean a green CC product, but top notch on upholstery and med soil carpets (with agitation)

and Nemesis. This is a colloidial product good on natural fibres I have had mixed succes with it.

A lot of chemicals Ive used in the past have left awful fumes afterwards. Would I be able to escape this by using organic products? Im not sure whether its worth the extra cost.

A few of my clients don't like smelly stuff, most do and seems to help with the psychology of 'clean'. I always found Prochem's Prespray Gold would get on my chest which is a bit suprising as it's OK for sheep fur.

Just wanted to jump in here and recommend trying out Code Green.  It used to be called "Just Magic".  It's got stabilized hydrogen peroxide and d-limonene in well-measured amounts so you can actually leave it on without rinsing.  Good stuff, and totally environmentally friendly.

It's made by Clean Craft.  Here's the product page on their website:

You can also ask for it at a local supplier.  If you've got an Interlink Supply or Masterblend dealer near you, you could ask them.

Ha! I see your point. However, in small quantities, it's really not harmful for the environment.

Back in the mid 80's I used orange products to clean with. The carpet came out beautiful. 
I claimed that we always used the least toxic products possible that would still get the job done. People responded well.

Has anyone tried Nilodor brand green chemicals?  The price is pretty good but as we know its not how much the product is but how well it cleans, price is secondary.
