Dry Fusion – What Is Dry Fusion?
Dry Fusion has been developed for todays carpets. There have been big changes in the construction of carpet and carpet fabrics over the last few years, most noteably commercial and domestic carpet has become shorter. Because of the denser packed pile, airflow is reduced and the carpet is left wetter. Add to this increased soilage and detergent is left behind.
These changes have contributed to extraction cleaning methods leaving the carpet wetter for longer, with more residual dirt left behind due to poor airflow. Dry Fusion has been designed to maximise cleaning performance on these new carpets. It works because it doesn’t rely on airflow to clean or to dry.
Dry Fusion is the only carpet cleaning system that hot cleans, deodorises, stain protects then heat dries every type of carpet. It’s all in the same process, and because it is patented, nobody else can use this amazing system of c`eaning. By taking all the best features of hot water extraction (hot solution, “Shot of Steam”), the best features of dry cleaning (low moisture, mechanical agitation) and combining them together with the patented hot cleaning pad system that constantly heats the fibres as they are being cleaned – you have some of the most outstanding results ever seen.
Two unique mechanisms work to keep Dry Fusion cleaned carpet virtually stain free to maintain that just cleaned look longer. A Fluorocarbon Resin (a Dupont Specialty) places an invisible protective shield over every fibre during the cleaning process. It helps prevent dry grit, dust as well as spills lodging within the carpet. Even walked in mud and oily spills have difficulty seeping in. Because the fibre is effectively “non stick” when you DRY FUSION clean, vacuuming removes more soil, plus the vacuum cleaner is easier to push.
This unique additive helps block dye sites in the fibre that normally allow food spills and beverages becoming ugly stains. When re-cleaned with Dry Fusion – using the “shot of steam” most stains are removed without spotting or special effort.
The chemistry behind DRY FUSION
ALL FIBRE SAFETY
Extraction and other rotary dry cleaning methods use high pH presprays to remove oily soils and protein stains. Sometimes this is followed by an acid rinse to neutralise. Most carpet mills, especially using wool or stain treated nylon reject any exposure to prespray of pH 10 to 12, even if only on the carpet for 5 minutes. Damage can take place in this critical exposure stage. Dry Fusion uses novel technology that removes the heaviest soils from the fibre at pH 7.2. A neutral pH is approved by all carpet fibre manufacturers and carpet mills.
ACTIVATOR – THE CHEMICAL
Our research into the area of fluoro surfactants, fluro stain protectors and polymer stain blocking resins has enabled us to give you a system that removes more stains than any other dry or wet method as well as to increase stain and dirt repellancy.
All emulsifiers and greasy soil solublisers are highly biodegradable and degrade rapidly. The natural orange and vanilla extracts used as odour neutralisers have been selected for their non-irritant qualities for those with sensitive noses and bronchial problems.
BACTOSHIELD AND ANTIMICROBIAL
For healthcare, sporting facilities, day care and at home you apply Bactoshield in the same manner as Activator, except that it has a more powerful cleaning action to deal with the type of stains found in healthcare and child care centres. Oily linaments, medicines, crayons and make-up; even traffic lane yellowing on carpet tiles and olefin fibre is removed more easily with BACTOSHIELD.
PLACES A SHIELD ON EACH FIBRE
Imagine as you clean, a water-proof, antimicrobial finish is being permanently bonded and locked in place by the fluorocarbon stain protective coating. Previously, the only long term treatment for carpets was when an antimicrobial was added to the fibre during manufacture. There is no proven product on the market today that can provide cleaning and be equal in antimicrobial effectiveness.
BACTOSHIELD IS SAFE
Triclosan has been used in toothpaste and medical products for years and is non-toxic. It helps prevent the growth of moulds, fungi and tinea as well as the problem bacteria like E-Coli and Staph Aureus. Bactoshield provides the risk management that your customers need for public liability.
URINE AND BODY ODOURS
Healthcare and sporting facilities are notorious for resistant odours like urine, vomit and body odour. Bactoshield removes ammonia and even pet smells. If it works in the commercial sector, imagine how good it is in the home.
