There’s only one safe way to get carpet
and upholstery thoroughly clean.

The Von Schrader Air Cell Extraction™ System with Encapsulation

It’s the only system that:

• Cleans deeply and completely in just one pass. 
Other cleaning processes leave dirt-laden water behind or just clean the surface of your carpet. Von Schrader’s air cell extraction system cleans down to the base of your carpet and extracts soil in just one pass. In fact, it’s so unique that it’s patented.
• Dries quickly - often in less than one hour. 
No over wetting causing mildew or bad odors. No shrinking either. The air cell extraction process uses air cell scrubbing bubbles – not gallons of hot water – to get your carpet and upholstery completely clean. It’s the perfect encapsulation system.
• Is safe for people, pets — and the environment. 
Our cleaning processes uses gentle, biodegradable, non-toxic, and fragrance-free cleaning agents that leave no sticky or oily residues to attract and hold soil. We’re green and aircraft approved.


Description: http://www.rotinagroup.com/images/von/image024.jpg

This patented system applies a dirt emulsifying air cell cleaner to fabric and fibers, brushing it thoroughly into the surface. It then removes the soil laden bubbles as they float dirt to the surface where it is extracted immediately before it can sink back down into the carpet.

 

Only Air Cell Extraction™ Cleaning Keeps Carpets out of Hot Water.

      
 

                   

“Steam” Carpet Cleaning
Despite the name, this method of carpet cleaning uses no steam. Instead, steam cleaning requires that gallons of hot water be sprayed into carpet. In many cases, just half of the dirt bearing water is removed. The remaining water can result in soggy carpet, severe discoloration, mildew, shrinkage, and damaged padding and flooring. Plus drying time can run up to 24 hours — much longer than the average homeowner or business can afford to keep off the carpet. 

Rotary Carpet Cleaning
This method of carpet cleaning scrubs a shampoo into the surface of the carpet using brushes. While rotary carpet cleaning does a fair job of cleaning the carpet surface, the deep-down dirt is untouched, or, worse yet, carried deeper into the carpet pile by the shampoo. Unfortunately, this method makes no effort to remove the shampoo and dirt. The carpet must be vacuumed later in a separate operation.

Only the Von Schrader Air Cell Extraction System™ safely and thoroughly cleans carpets on-location without using damaging amounts of liquid or scrubbing action.
The Von Schrader system applies dirt emulsifying cleaning bubbles (not gallons of water), brushes it all way down to the base of the carpet fiber using cylindrical brushes (unlike rotary brushes which merely clean the surface), and then floats the dirty bubbles before they can sink back down into the carpet or fiber. This simultaneous operation combined with air cell bubbles ensures that there’s no danger of shrinkage, dry-rot, browning or mildew. Plus, the carpet is dry often in less than just one hour because we control the moisture.

CARPET CLEANING

Basic Method for Cleaning High pressure jets spray a solution of hot water and detergent into the carpet to loosen the soil. Some of the cleaning solution and soil are then extracted by means of a built-in suction method. Thousands of tiny Air Cells, masses of air surrounded by a microscopically thin sandwich of detergent, water and more detergent, are gently scrubbed into the carpet. These Air-Cells create a unique cleaning environment, containing 90% air and only 10% detergent and water, that overcomes gravity to hold soil in suspension for immediate extraction. A detergent is applied into the carpet pile with rotary brush machine. Extraction must be conducted with a separate wet vacuum pick-up system.
Drying Time 24+ hours 1 hour 4-6 hours

Provides a surface cleaning only. Dirt deep in the carpet remains.
Environmentally safe? 

• Requires many gallons of water to clean a carpet

         • Most require trucks 

           to transport equipment and idle                      during cleaning

 • Air Cell detergents are biodegradable.

• Machines are easily transported in a small hybrid car.

• Very little water is used. Green Seal Certified

Most require trucks to transport equipment
Non-toxic?

Varies.
Most cleaning solutions are non-toxic, but not all. Check with your specific provider.

 

Yes, including “stain resistant” nylon,

wool, and other synthetic fibers.

• No,

• Do not use on rugs, or old and brittle carpet

• Can cause severe distortions on some types of carpet, particularly those of a twisted, cut pile construction, such as Saxony and cut/loop types

           • Unless you’re working with a very experienced company, it is easy for carpets to become overly saturated resulting in discoloration, shrinkage, splitting seams,de-lamination, and mildew growth.
