HWE upholstery with encap

Post by milspec6 on Mon Apr 04, 2016 4:00 pm

I have seen a steady diet of furniture the past few days and I have been using encap products only along with hwe extraction. The combination has been working out real well and greatly speeds up the process over the bucket / foam method.

I still feel that hwe is important, but the chemistry of an encap seems to really work well on upholstery to tackle the stains, wicking issues, and rapid drying that we all face each time. It gives you a safer product and it really sold the customer when I explained their greener ingredients over the traditional shampoos and solvents.

I have used it on wool, polyester, and even a micro-suede with excellent results and dry times around 30 minutes. So far, it has proven to be a good method.

As the guy said at the 5th floor when he fell off the Empire State Building....."So far, so good".

I do the same on a lot of upholstery. I got a palm polisher from harbor freight that I love for upholstery.

Trigger sprayer with encap, palm polisher with bonnets, and folding table makes doing upholstery a lot more enjoyable.. and of course the sapphire or similar tool
