So I bought a bucket of compound at Interlink. Planning on using it in conjunction with Encap Green on a job I have coming up.

It's a fairly dirty frieze that has some gnarly traffic lanes. As par for the course, it hasn't been cleaned in 3 - 4 years. Frieze is the carpet that I have the most difficult time cleaning bar none. I'm hoping the compound will give me an edge.

Here's my plan and please let me know what you think:

1. Vaccum
2. Apply Encap Green
3. Throw compound all over the place while the Encap Green dwells
4. Scrub the carpet with the CRB using the flat metal guards until the compound turns dark black
5. Run the CRB with renovators
6. Pad????
7. Post vac/groom????

Please let me know what you think.

Thanks!
I'm interested on this ad well? Be sure and let us know how it works out!
Sounds like a good plan. Frieze is tough for me too when it's really dirty so I'm interested in the turnout as well.
I assume your struggles are with polyester frieze as opposed to nylon frieze? that is the only thing that makes sense. Occasionally on these polyester nasty ones, we use our TM /RX, then post OP.

I have issues with both, lol.

Amen to that (frieze being the toughest)... got some Host compound coming this week. Would love to know how this works out for you.
I've had good luck with encap Hydrox on frieze so far. I haven't tried peroxcellent yet but I'm sure it would do just as well. Most frieze I see is a light color and traffic lanes can be brutal because I'm squeamish about over padding with OP and crb can tug at the long fibers. So plenty of dwell (12-15 minutes) and then re applying some juice to keep it lubed, then pad with cotton poly (glads) is what I do.
I'm not always satisfied with the results though so any input is welcome here too.
I'd like to hear the results of the host compound as well as other brands.
soooo i have to much time i guess on my hands...and end up playing at jobs to much.....so here are some crb compound pics...and some pad/crb..etc etc.... i have found that the dirt napper seems to do better at removing alot of spots than the crb does...but crb and compound do pretty good at traffic lane stuff.....however....i think the 175 with brush is faster in most cases.....i can see using the crb for pet hair removal...and as stand alone when you have a pretty clean place with maybe a couple minor areas to use compound on....
