Carpet CPR - Product Review:
I was in Sam's Club the other day when I happened upon a lady demonstrating a new carpet cleaning product - "Carpet CPR". This product, which is distributed by Wonder Marketing, is the next great spot remover, or is it? The young lady demonstrating the product poured some grape juice on to a piece of carpet then sprayed Carpet CPR onto the affected area, blotted, and the grape juice was gone. It worked - right?
Underneath the piece of carpet was an aluminum tray. How many of you have a metal tray under your carpet? That's right you have a very absorbent material called 'padding'. Secondly how many of us can get to a spill in 30 seconds or less? Third how many of us have brand new stain resistant carpeting, with carpet protectant, in our homes? Are you now seeing what I was seeing. If you go on line you can purchase a 24oz bottle of Carpet CPR for $11.95, not including tax or shipping. That's more than fifty cents per ounce. I have forgotten what the price was at Sam's Club but you had to buy two bottles.
According to the MSDS (Material Data Safety Sheet) Carpet CPR is an 'Aqueous Cleaner' which means that at least 95% of the 24oz bottle is good old water. There is no mention what the remaining ingredient is, but it is probably 'Sodium Perbonate' a common bleaching agent with a pH level of 7.5. The bottle claims to leave behind No Soapy Residue which is true because there is no soap in this product. When you watch the video on their website they too are working with fresh spills with no padding. Often times a spot on the carpet is three times larger in the padding - especially pet urine. Not only do I use special chemicals on particular stains but special tools as well. Our clients do not want to spots coming back.
I am not saying this product will not work but I would have liked to have seen a demonstration using older carpet with padding. Give me a true apple to apple comparison. For me spending Fifty Cents for an ounce of water is steep. If you have questions about this product please email me or give me a call at (916) 525-2456. I hope this review was helpful to you.
Until Next Time,
