With this CleanFreak Carpet Extraction Cleaner, you get a fool proof carpet cleaning solution. It can be used in any of our self-contained carpet scrubbers, carpet spotters, or box extractors without worry. The low pH (between 3.0 - 6.0) makes it powerful enough to clean mildly soiled carpets, yet it's gentle enough on the carpet fibers to safely be applied on any type of carpeting. This being said, we still recommend testing an inconspicuous area for color fastness, before cleaning entire areas.
We recommend mixing this carpet extractor cleaning solution at 2 ounces of chemical per 1 gallon of water for normal extraction duties. It can also be used to scrub carpets with a bonnet, where you would want to mix it at 12 to 16 ounces per gallon of water. And, finally if using it for pre-treatment of carpets, you'll want to mix 16 to 24 ounces per gallon of water.
