I have used ProForce Pink Lotion Dish Detergent for the last 5 years. It does a great job! We’ve also tried the ProForce Heavy Duty Degreaser and it is a great product.”

Carpet Cleaner FAQs

Back to FAQs listing

Can I use this product in various manufacturers' extraction machines?
ProForce® Carpet Cleaner was developed for use in most carpet extraction machines. It does not contain any solvents or petroleum products that might harm plastic, rubber or metal parts, nor does it have an aggressive pH. Always refer to the machine manufacturer's use instructions for compatibility and dilution instructions.
My machine has a reservoir / bottle for cleaning solution and another for plain water. How much Carpet Cleaner do I put in the cleaning solution reservoir / bottle?
Each manufacturer's machine and solution works at a different dilution ratio and mixes with the water that is sprayed onto your carpet at different levels. Start by filling the bottle half full with Carpet Cleaner then adding water to fill the bottle (1:1 dilution ratio). This should work satisfactorily. If not, adjust the amount of product to water in the cleaning solution reservoir / bottle up or down until you reach satisfactory cleaning results.
What is the pH of this product?
Carpet Cleaner concentrate and use solution has a pH range of 9.0 - 9.7.
Does this product contain Scotchguard™ or other protectant?
ProForce® Carpet Cleaner does not contain Scotchguard™ or any other protectant.
Can I mix this product with other cleaners or chemicals?
ProForce® Carpet Cleaner should not be mixed with other cleaners or chemicals. Please follow use instructions on the product label.
Is this product effective for use with most common carpets?
This product may be used on most carpeting. Use caution and test an inconspicuous location when attempting to clean wool carpeting, as many colors are not colorfast.
Will this product harm non-colorfast carpet?
This product is designed for use on a variety of carpet types and colors. However, it is always recommended that the product be tested in an inconspicuous location prior to treating the entire carpet.
How can I tell if a carpet is colorfast?
A quick "colorfastness" test is to dampen a small area of carpet with water, then blot it dry with a clean white towel. If any color transfers to the towel, the carpet is NOT colorfast.
What if the product is not diluted before use?
This product is highly concentrated and should be diluted before applying to carpet. Full strength product may leave a white residue on the carpet that can be vacuumed up after drying.
After cleaning, there is a white residue left in my carpet. How do I remove it?
The white residue is most likely a result of using too high of a concentration of product in the cleaning process. Usually this white residue can be removed by vacuuming the carpet. If vacuuming does not remove all residues, rinse the carpet by using only clean water in the carpet extraction machine, and rinse and extract the affected area.
Can I use this product in pet areas?
It is recommended that pets do not come in contact with the product. Rinse well and allow wet surfaces to dry before returning pets to cleaned surface.
How do I dispose of any unused product?
As with all chemicals, regulations prohibit disposal of this product or rinse water in storm drains, lakes or streams. Please help protect the environment by observing all applicable regulations for storage and disposal. Please rinse and recycle the container.
Is this product harmful to septic systems?
This product, when used as directed, will not harm septic systems.
