Heat cleans better

Water is the universal solvent, and heat amplifies the solvency of water. Anyone who has ever cleaned a greasy stove or oven knows that cold water is a less effective cleaning medium than hot water.

According to "James Swenson”
B.S. 1978, California Institute of Technology, Pasadena CA, Appl. Phys.,from the US Department of Energy:

    Hot water cleans better because of ...
  1. faster reaction rates – (kinetics) heat accelerates all reactions, even mechanical reactions like when water wicks along the surface of a fabric.
  2. speedier dissolving abilities – (due to entropy) even without soap, small amounts of some greases will dissolve in water. In hot water, the amount that will dissolve can be ten times higher.
  3. melting – some greases are low-melting waxes, and being melted makes it easier for the soapy water to penetrate, detach, and surround them. Even things that are not quite melted at least get softer.”

With techniques backed by science and equipment that cannot be surpassed for sheer power, MonsterClean is a titan in carpet cleaning.
Power and Science: That's the MonsterClean advantage.
