The Fast Foamer System With High Energy Foam Removes Sharpie Permanent Ink from Carpet
These photos show the results from cleaning the untreated (virgin) carpet using the same chemistry, equipment, and procedure as in the video above. You can watch the video of the cleaning process for this carpet sample here.
The ink definitely took longer to remove, with a lot more agitation, using various spot agitation techniques. Some may think that the extended cleaning time may cause pile distortion or damage, however, I used .17 to .25 brush deniers, so those concerns are minimal.
- HEF dilution 12 oz per gallon
- Fast Foamer set for very high air fraction foam (dry foam) aka High Energy Foam
- Brush Deniers Used:
- White (.17)
- Grey (.23)
- Blue (.35)
Brushes were used in various sequences depending on the visual improvement.
