and dries faster than competitive products. Its unique
technology eliminates the sticky residue that often
causes resoiling. By preventing resoiling it lengthens
the time between cleaning. Airx 82 is great for bon-
net cleaning, brush applications, extraction, rotary
shampooing and spot cleaning. Dilution: 1:64.

CARPET CARE PROGRAM

Carpets are a little more tricky than hard floors, since they have three dimensions to take into consideration rather than just two: width,
length, and depth in the form of the carpet pile. Dirt gets trapped inside of carpet fibres, and if not taken care of properly, will quickly bring
down the quality of appearance in your facility. Keep on top of issues by performing regular maintenance tasks, and make sure to remove
spots and stains as they occur, to keep the dirt from setting.


REMOVING SPOTS AND STAINS
Alternately blot and drench area with water as soon
as possible after occurrence.

Airx 83 will remove both water based and oil based
spots. Blot the spot, spray with Airx 83, allow it to
sit for 5 minutes, blot the spot again, and vacuum
when dry.

If spots from organic matter remain, redo with Airx
65. Do not rinse until spot is gone.


PREPARING HEAVY SOILED AREAS
