WOW... think I'll just stick with the 'physics class' approach explaining what encapsulation actually is. One is hired to do a job. Perform poorly and lose the contract, however that machine probably would create quite an impression.

Excessive build-up of foreign soils and small objects may hinder the effectiveness of pre-sprays and traffic lane cleaners.

Possibly! If you use a mechanical aggitator like me then that isn't a problem.
 A good prespray with surfactants and HOTwater (another excellent surfactant)
When its below freezing i always ask the cust to prevac before we arrive. Approve 
Otherwise prevac is always done first.... Cool

Agitation is just common sense... so is a good prevac. Just because you can get away doing a partial sloppy job doesn.t mean you should. Then again some guys don't have any pride in the work they do.

The "where does the dirt go?" question is something I am glad I don't have to deal with using truck-mounted hot-water extraction, but then I don't do commercial carpet either.  I'd probably use encap and have to find a good way to explain how it works.

I don't think that machine would really work that great. I could see using it in a janitorial type situation, but I would opt for just a pull behind extractor.

where does the dirt go? where does a stain go when you remove with with a spotter and terrycloth? into the rag / pad. man they get dirty.

Cimex is still better because it leaves some encap chemicals behind when the carpet get vacuumed the carpet stays cleaners much longer. I have been cleaning 2 floors office building for two years the carpet is very clean all the time much better than I started .

Use Cimex and encapsulation for cleaning 21 story hotel in Anchorage. We use our van mounts for the first two floors. When you get up to the higher floors the carpets are not that dirty.  In my opinion they are not as good a van mount or even a good portable unit. However they are great for lightly soiled areas and we can give a lower bid because they are much faster than using a portable.
