CAP-IT-OFF is an encapsulation cleaner for use on all types of carpet and washable fabric upholstery. CAP-IT-OFF encapsulates soils so they can be removed by vacuuming when dry.
Carpet encapsulation is the process where a chemical is worked into the carpet with a mechanical action. The soil is enclosed (encapsulate) in a crystal onto the carpet fibres which is easily removed from the fibres when vacuuming. The science of encapsulation is the crystalline polymers that are added in addition to the detergents.
CAP-IT-OFF is a concentrated cleaner that is diluted with water and makes a very high foaming liquid. This liquid is used to scrub the carpet area being treated. The rich foam removes and suspends soilage from the carpet fibres. As the carpet dries, the detergent and soilage dry to a crystalline, brittle residue that is removed easily by dry-vacuuming. It also contains anti-resoiling resins to coat and protect the fibres from soil penetration in the future.
CAP-IT-OFF is safe for use on wool, stain resistant nylons and all washable upholstery fabrics. It is ideal for use on busy commercial carpeted floors where the time available for cleaning it limited and it is desirable for the carpet to be dry and returned to services as soon as possible.
