SafeChoice Carpet Shampoo is part of AFM's Comprehensive 3-Part Carpet Shampoo and Sealing System, although, unlike the other two parts of the system, it can be used on its own.
AFM Safecoat's Carpet Shampoo (gallon size) is an odorless, dye free rug and carpet shampoo. It is both a strong cleaner and odor remover yet safe even for the chemically sensitive.
Contains no harmful chemicals like ammonia, butyl ethers, alcohols, phosphates, caustics or acids
Non-toxic, non-corrosive, non-flammable and biodegradable. It does not irritate hands or skin
Use on: Although Carpet Shampoo is generally suitable for synthetic carpets and rugs, because of variations in materials and production processes used by different manufacturers, you should always spot test to insure compatibility with your carpet. Wool fibers generally do not react well to water based products, so Carpet Shampoo is not recommended for wool.
Carpet Shampoo is designed to be used in conjunction with Carpet Seal (to seal carpet backing) and Lock Out (to seal carpet fibers and repel dirt and stains). This three part system helps to clean out and seal in the irritating chemicals found throughout a typical carpet. Carpet Shampoo is also highly effective when used individually as a carpet shampoo.
Coverage: One gallon diluted solution will clean approximately 300 square feet (depending on dilution rate).
Application: Should be applied using a hand-held pump sprayer. One similar to a garden sprayer is most effective. Prior to application vacuum carpet thoroughly. Using the applicable dilution rate specified below, spray the carpet evenly, saturating the surface. Allow the shampoo ten minutes to fully penetrate. Then extract the shampoo with very clean, very hot water. By extracting with only clean, hot water the carpet is not only cleaned more effectively but the removal of residue from prior cleanings is accomplished. While the foregoing procedure yields the best results, Carpet Shampoo may also, if desired, be added to any shampooing or carpet cleaning machine.
Dilution rate per gallon water:
Light cleaning - 3 fluid ounces.
Medium cleaning - 5 fluid ounces.
Heavy cleaning - 8 fluid ounces.
