System 3 Green Cleaners uses a natural product that is environmentally responsible and works in much the same way as an ordinary kitchen sponge. Just like you would use a sponge to wipe up a spill, or to wash and absorb dirt from a counter or wall, System 3 Green is used to wash and absorb dirt from your carpet fibers. As with using a kitchen sponge, you want to limit the amount of water you use while cleaning. Think of the carpet pile as a vertical surface, like a wall. If you use too much liquid, it will run down the yarn toward the carpet backing, just as too much liquid runs down a wall. If you allow this dissolved dirt to run down the backing, it can be more difficult to remove and can wick back.
Because System 3 Green is a dry extraction cleaning system it carries the liquid ingredients to the carpet fibers in a controlled way. The soft, organic, natural sponges contain all the necessary liquid to dissolve and absorb both water based and oil based dirt. It’s moistened with water and a blend of environmentally friendly ingredients. And because System 3 Green is a low moisture cleaning system, when you’re finished cleaning, the carpet is dry and ready to use immediately.
Chemical and mechanical action is required to break the oil bond and pull the dirt away from the carpet fibers. Then this loosened dirt must be removed. System 3 Green is formulated to dissolve both types of dirt and then to absorb it. System 3 Green cleaning doesn’t leave a sticky residue to cause rapid resoiling.
