First Step

FIRST STEP

CARPET CLEANERS SAY IT’S THE BEST!!


If you could create the perfect prespray what would you want? Well, you would want it to be tough enough for commercial carpet and restaurants, yet gentle enough for wool and stain resistant nylon. And you’d want the pH to be stable. And it would have to be easy to mix and safe enough for you to use all day long for the rest of your life with out worry. And while you’re at it, make it cheap, like a quarter per gallon rtu. In other words, make it just like FIRST STEP. Like our other cleaners, FIRST STEP is dual purpose and makes an excellent extractor for portables. One 50lb. keg makes 500 gallons. Directions: add 1/4 cup per gal rtu. adjust as you need; for Hydroforce (8:1), use 1/4 cup per pint (2-3 cups total); for portables use 1/4 cup for 5-10 gallons. For really grimy rugs use more or add ZOOM! and/or POWDERED PEROXIDE; in either case the pH is 9.2-9.5

Activ 100

ACTIV 100

CARPET CLEANER'S ULTRA CONCENTRATE

All of the ingredients in ACTIV 100 are fully active and truly multi-functional. The pH is always 9.2 - at 10:1 or even 1200:1w/w, so it won't brown rugs or void warranties - yet it offers more cleaning power than the high pH detergents.NO B.S. just lots of emulsifiers, wetting agents, natural solvents, water softener, buffered alkalinity and dispersants. You can use it on olefin, nasty restaurants, wet cleanable wool, and most upholstery. All our ingredients are chosen for performance, safety and environmental impact. Pound for pound this the most expensive powder to make - mix for mix this is the least expensive detergent you can use. For truckmounts use a 5 gal mix and adjust as needed.

Many cleaners add 1-2 oz. to every mix. POWDERED PEROXIDE also breaks up grease and protein into smaller & easier to remove molecules. Safe for MOST colors; it has a pH of about 10.5 by itself but only 9.5 when mixed with SOLUTIONS cleaners. For prespray: use 1/2 oz per gal. For browning: use 1/2 oz per quart HOT water.

Odorcrylic

ODORCRYLIC

ALL PURPOSE SPOTTER POLYMER DEODORIZER FOR PETS

ODORCRYLIC
is a new type of deodorizer. This is not a cover-up and is essentially odorless itself. It works by reacting with forms of ammonia and sulfur which cause the following problem odor sources: urine (urea, morpholine), feces (skatole), decay (cadaverine & putrescine), skunk (mercap, fish (amines), and various protein odors. For animal or move in odor problems ODORCRYLIC is excellent and can be safely mixed with either FIRST STEP or HD which saves time, and time is money! Inexpensive-about $2-3 per room and all you have to do is add 8-16 oz to every gallon of prespray, spray on heavy (100-200 sq.ft.per diluted gallon), wait 15 minutes and extract. You can apply an afterspray with a hand sprayer or use ODOR RELIEF as an after spray. NOT AN OSHA HAZARDOUS CHEMICAL.

Brown Away

BROWN AWAY

SAFEST BROWNING TREATMENT

A must for any professional carpet cleaner. As an anti-browning agent, it lowers the pH of the carpet and acts as an anti-oxidant. Generally a mist of dilute BROWN AWAY after cleaning ("souring") is sufficient. You want to apply about 1 oz per 200 ft2, (dilute it as you like, i.e. 3:1 in a trigger sprayer). Also great for removing pre-existing browning! Can be mixed with ACTIV 100, HD etc. for a one step treatment. About 3-4x stronger than vinegar. pH @ 50%=2.5; @ 5% (6oz/gal) =3; @ 1%=3; @ 0 .5% (1/2oz/gal) = 5; @ 0.1% = 5

Zoom!

ZOOM!

NON-FOAMING, LOW pH BOOSTER, RINSE AID, CLEANER & WATER SOFTENER

A true detergent booster, NOT A BLEACH! ZOOM!: 1) softens water; 2) scatters soil; 3) neutralizes soil; 4) disperses "soap"; 5) suspends soil; 6) keeps soil from resettling back on fiber (encrustation). ZOOM! is a must for people cleaning with very hard water, most liquids or phosphate-free detergents. ZOOM! is also the best clear rinse available since it protects equipment from scale and contains no surfactants, cationics, or bleach, while effectively removing soil and residue. Costs only 70 cents per cup! NOT OSHA HAZARDOUS. COMPARE TO PROCYON.
pH CHART FOR ZOOM!:
1,000:1 = 7.5-8; 500:1= 8.5; 250:1 = 9; 100:1 = 9.5

Odor Relief

ODOR RELIEF

POWERFUL COUNTERACTANT FOR IMMEDIATE RELIEF

If you remove the primary source of the odor, ODOR RELIEF can mask the residual odor while it naturally dissipates.

Dilutes about 640:1.
