Carpet Cleaning With Capture® Carpet Cleaner

Keep your carpet stain-free.
Capture particles are composed of thousands of synthetic polymer particles encased in a water based cleaning solution and mild lemon fragrance. Capture safely removes soiling from fibers without damaging the fiber or its stain resistant finish and is approved by Dupont, Monsanto, Allied and the Wool Bureau. Capture will not void carpet warranties! Capture is designed to remove the oily and water based soils that your vacuum can't by absorbing the material into the particles that vacuum away.

How Do I Use Capture ®?

Just follow four simple steps.
  1. Apply premist to break up heavier dirt and stains.
  2. Sprinkle a generous amount of Capture powder onto the misted area
  3. Brush into the carpet using Capture Brush. The brush will not damage or fuzz carpet.
  4. Wait 30 minutes and vacuum the soil laden Capture. You can leave Capture on your carpet as long as you choose - even over night. You can walk on Capture when it is down.

  • Capture is safe on all types of fibers-nylon, olefin, polyester, wool and even silk.
