Traffic Lane Removal
Posted by bobh (bobh), 6 August 2003Although I use a fairly new double vacum extraction machine I still have a lot of probs removing traffic lanes. I do prespray with Ashbys prespotter. Any tips to improve performance even a little would be appreciated.
Posted by Derek (Derek), 6 August 2003There are several issues here..
1 Make sure that you always prevacuum thoroughly..that is North to South / East to West with a good powerful vacuum
2. Spray on your pre-treatment chemical.
3. Agitate to ensure that the remaining soil is released. Agitation may be by power head on the extraction tool, a separate machine ie one with cotra-rotating brushes.
4. Rinse with extraction machine using a low pH rinse agent
