Carpet BON Odor Control

Carpet/Upholstery Cleaning Flyer PDF

The following dilution rates are suggested for carpet care: 

Spray Dilution Rate:

There is a variable range for dilution depending upon the severity of mal-odor.  The variable range is 1 to 1 part, 1 to 2 parts, or 1 to 3 parts water.  This rate is for BioWorld Odor Neutralizer (BON) Concentrate. 

Fog Dilution Rate:

The variable range is 2 oz. to 4 oz. BON per gallon of water depending on severity of mal-odor. 

Shampoo and/or Rinse Solution:

The variable range is ½ oz. to 4 oz. BON per gallon of water or cleaning solution. 

GENERAL INSTRUCTIONS

  1. Spray surface of carpet through a pump spray using spray dilution rate suggested above, then proceed to clean carpets in normal fashion adding BON Concentrate to the shampoo and/or rinse solution (see above).
  2. In many cases it will not be necessary to lift the carpet and treat the under padding and/or sub-flooring.  Before expending this labor, dampen odor spot area with BON Concentrate and using a sponge, work the product into the carpet.  An alternative is to inject with a syringe.

BON Concentrate will not damage the ionic properties of carpets.  With natural fiber oriental rugs, test with BON Concentrate on a small, unnoticeable section, and if the result is satisfactory, proceed with the cleaning process.  We recommend that only professionals trained in cleaning oriental carpets attempt to use BON Concentrate.  In many cases, it is possible through BON to restore an odor polluted rug to its potential market value.

FINAL TOUCH

Change the air conditioner filter and spray the air condition intake with BON Concentrate.

BON Guide for Carpet Care
Spray Dilution Rate:

There is a variable range for dilution depending upon the severity of mal-odor.  The variable range is 1 to 1 part, 1 to 2 parts, or 1 to 3 parts water.  This rate is for BON Concentrate. 

Fog Dilution Rate:

The variable range is 2 oz. to 4 oz. BON per gallon of water depending on severity of mal-odor. 

Shampoo and/or Rinse Solution:

The variable range is ½ oz. to 4 oz. BON per gallon of water or cleaning solution.

General Directions 
  1. Spray surface of carpet through a pump spray using spray dilution rate suggested above, then proceed to clean carpets in normal fashion adding BON concentrate to the shampoo and/or rinse solution (see above).
  1. In the event of residual mal-odor, fog BON concentrate using fog dilution rate suggested above, through a cold aerosol type portable fogger.
  1. Should residual mal-odor be present, locate urine spotted areas and make topical application of BON concentrating using the spray dilution rate suggested above.

Objective 

To increase profit by saving labor costs and to determine the most economical dilution rate for BON concentrate without extending the drying time, we recommend the above sequence, however, if mal-odor is not indicated by a close inspection of a suspect wet spot after step 1, omit step 2. 

In many cases it will not be necessary to lift the carpet and treat the under padding and/or sub flooring.  Before expending this labor, dampen odor spot area with BON concentrate and using a sponge, work the product into the carpet.  An alternative is to inject with a syringe. 

BON concentrate will not damage the ionic properties of carpets.  With natural fiber oriental rugs, test with BON concentrate on a small, unnoticeable section, and if the result is satisfactory, proceed with the cleaning process.  We recommend that only professionals trained in cleaning oriental carpets attempt to use BON concentrate.  In many cases, it is possible through BON use to restore an odor-polluted rug to its potential market value.

Fire Restoration

The following dilution rates are suggest for carpet and soft fabric care: 

Spray Dilution Rate:

There is a variable range for dilution depending upon severity of mal-odor.  The variable range is 1 to 1 part, 1 to 2 parts, or 1 to 3 parts water.  This rate is for BioWorld Odor Neutralizer (BON) Concentrate. 

Fog Dilution Rate:

The variable range is 30 to 1/150 to 1 (water to BON Concentrate) depending on severity of mal-odor and the length of spray time.  30 to 1 dilution would be fogged for no more than 15 minutes.  150 to 1 dilution would be fogged for longer periods.  BON will follow the smoke path if the air conditioning system is running when fogging. 

Shampoo and/or Rinse Solution:

The variable range is ½ oz. to 4 oz. BON Concentrate per gallon of water or cleaning solution. 

General Directions

  1. Spray surfaces through a pump spray using spray dilution rate suggested above, then proceed to clean carpets/fabrics in normal fashion adding BON Concentrate to the shampoo and/or rinse solution (see above).
  2. In the event of residual mal-odor, fog BON Concentrate using fog dilution rate suggested above through a cold aerosol type portable fogger.
  3. Safe to spray directly to fabrics (except silk).  Use a fine mist pump sprayer.
  4. Add BON to wash down liquids, variable dilution rate.  Start at 4 oz. BON per gallon of water.

Objective

To increase profit by saving labor costs and to determine the most economical dilution rate for BON Concentrate.  In many cases fogging the BON can restore smoke-damaged merchandise. 

BON Concentrate will not damage the ionic properties of carpets.  With natural fiber oriental rugs, test with BON Concentrate on a small, unnoticeable section, and the result is satisfactory, proceed with the cleaning process.  We recommend that only professionals trained in cleaning oriental carps attempt to use BON Concentrate.  In many cases, it is possible through BON to restore odor polluted merchandise to full market value.

Final Touch
