This is Step #1 of a three part process to clean, lock in out-gassing chemical content, and to seal the carpet for dirt resistance!
DESCRIPTION: SafeChoice Carpet Shampoo 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. It contains no harmful chemicals like
ammonia, butyl ethers, alcohols, phosphates, caustics or
acids. It is not toxic, non-corrosive, non-flammable and
biodegradable. It does not irritate hands or skin.
SafeChoice Carpet Shampoo is designed to be used in
conjunction with SafeChoice Carpet Seal (to seal carpet
backing) and SafeChoice 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. SafeChoice Carpet Shampoo
is also highly effective when used individually as a carpet
USE ON: Although SafeChoice 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
SafeChoice Carpet Shampoo is not recommended for
ADVANTAGES / SIGNIFICANT BENEFITS:
-Odorless, non-offensive to user and occupant.
-Especially welcomed by professional cleaners and
occupants of enclosed, centrally-ventilated buildings
where occupants are subject to the effects of all toxic
discharges within the building, including those from
building and maintenance products.
- When used in conjunction with SafeChoice Carpet
Seal and SafeChoice Lock Out, provides a unique
system for reducing the effects of carpet toxicity.
-Safely used by and for the chemically sensitive.
-Reduces indoor air pollution from soiled carpets.
DILUTION RATE PER GALLON OF WATER: One gallon
of Carpet Shampoo will clean from 2000 – 4500 square
feet of carpet depending upon dilution rate. Light cleaning
- 3 fluid ounces. Medium cleaning - 5 fluid ounces. Heavy
cleaning - 8 fluid ounces. One gallon of diluted solution
will clean approximately 300 square feet.
APPLICATION: SafeChoice Carpet Shampoo 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 above, 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, SafeChoice
Carpet Shampoo may also if desired be added to any
shampooing or carpet cleaning machine.
CLEAN UP: Clean tools and equipment with clean water.
LIMITATIONS: Not recommended for wool. Water
cleaning of wool tends to shrink the fabric and, due to
natural fiber absorption, can pull dirt back into the fibers.
Always spot test carpet in an inconspicuous location for
color fastness and compatibility. When using carpet
products it is advisable to put small squares of aluminum
foil under the furniture legs until carpet is thoroughly dry.
HEALTH PRECAUTIONS: As with all cleaning products,
keep container tightly closed and out of the reach of
children. Do not ingest. If swallowed, drink two (2)
glasses of water to dilute. In case of eye contact, flush
immediately with plenty of water for 15 minutes. If you are
chemically sensitive, always test for personal tolerance.
