    I have heard the same reports- and my 12 year old son would be blown away- but Kate is just shy of 4- too young? Especially since the showtimes are 6 and 9- after long days with the princesses....Who am I kidding- I'll be the one exhausted everynight!

    I hate to belabor this any further, but I also use Capture to spot clean the upholstery when my guests create stains. My daughter (probably the messiest college student on the planet) has a Crate and Barrel white slipcovered sofa in her apartment. Thanks to Capture, that sofa doesn't have one stain on it.

    Mrs. Capture, Does this product also "lift" the carpet where it's been tracked down some in walkways?

    I have used Marine Clean in the past with excellent results - usually I do my own so will be looking forward to trying Capture - but for those times when I am not able to be in town I call Marine Clean. As a plus the guy that owns it is really nice on the eyes!!!!! And a nice guy as well.

    That's a good question. I'll have to ask my hubby. I don't have any carpet at the beach that has flattened out like that (we chose a tightly-looped carpet so we wouldn't have that problem), so I don't have any experience with that. At home I just use a vacuum cleaner that sucks really well to lift up the carpet.

    I haven't seen the traffic area, just going by the description of new renter. Doesn't sound bad at all - just can notice it some. The carpet is likely middle of the road quality and light in color. Has had 2 years of traffic on it. My guess is any regular shampooing/vacuuming will lift it back to normal. Just curious.

    Used Capture last night in my family room - UNBELIEVEABLE - the only problem I have now is that the spot is cleaner than the rest of the carpet.
    Can't wait to try it out in a couple of weeks on the rental units down there.

    Thank you to your husband

    :cool: Did it work more as a spot cleaner or would it be easy to use to clean a whole room? I'm going to get some for here.
    Our renters found someone to clean carpets in our rental and said they looked good - guess I'll find out who did it when we get the receipt.

    They used to have the professional-sized scrubbing machine at places that carried Capture to clean large areas. When they were testing the product, my husband's group cleaned entire airports, hotels, etc. I don't know where you can rent those scrubbers now.

    I talked to the Capture people via www.captureclean.com since my husband just got a nice promotion and has been too busy with his new job to talk to them (he hasn't been in the Capture business for 25 years). Businesses like Home Depot no longer rent equipment for applying Capture to large areas. Oreck makes such a product, but they don't rent them. Professional carpet cleaners do have the mechanical equipment to apply it. For do-it-yourselfers like me, they recommend using one of those brush brooms to apply it on large areas. If you do one room at a time, it's not a big deal. Make sure you have a good vacuum cleaner and start with an empty bag.

    Thanks for the info. As for the "brush broom", I'm not positive I know what you mean. I'll look for a pic to post to see for sure. You are so helpful.

    Here's a graphic. It's like a brush on a broomstick.

    For those of you who gave up carpet cleaning at age 50...I had a very good experience today with the local Chem Dry operator. Had a bunch of what turned out to be tar of some sort...on the carpets...they got it all out. Their number is 850 862-6902.

    Thanks GVM. Chem Dry is a franchise type business and owner operated. We have used them several times here in Atlanta and their "dry" technique is great because the carpet stays dry and you can walk on it almost immediately after it is cleaned. Also, you can by a spray bottle of their stuff for spot removal and the stuff can not be beat. :clap_1: :clap_1: :clap_1:

    I am glad I saw this thread because we will be doing some carpet cleanining in our house in Seagrove in December/Jan before next season starts and we needed to know where to find a good Chem Dry company in/around SoWal. Once again, ask on the board and you will get one or more excellent answers. :D

    Hey, G, I'd rather clean my own carpet and do my own landscape maintenance and buy an LV Epi instead. Can't do both (although someday hopefully I'll be old enough that I'll be physically unable to be a do-it-yourselfer)! Born to the wrong parents (a.k.a., no old money). LOL.
