I have aquestion for all the cleaners who use a pre spray.  Are you rinsing with water or with a rinsing agent?  How are you applying your pre spray? Pump up, hhydro forse or electric sprayer?  Are you just pre spraying the bad spots or the entire room?  There are advantages to applying your per spray hot, but I guess everyone already knows that.

 Pre-spray entire room, then extract with detergent in tank.  Never tried hot pre-spray though.

Prespray one room @ a time with hydro force, aggitate, let it sit, then rinse. Works well in most situations.

I prespray the entire room with the Hydro-Force then extract w/extraction chem.  Then neutralize and rake out.

lately I've been using alot of good ol water for rinsing

 

doesn't tend to get that "brightness" that emulsifiers leave behind but carpets are much softer and less likely to resoil

 

If it's nasty I'll also use an emulsifier though

the one I use is neutral ph
