What is a Hydrocarbon?

A hydrocarbon is an organic chemical compound composed exclusively of hydrogen and carbon atoms. Hydrocarbons occur naturally and form the basis of crude oil, natural gas, coal, and other important energy sources.

Hydrocarbons are highly combustible, producing carbon dioxide, water, and heat when burnt. Therefore, they are highly effective and sought after as a source of fuel. Refined petroleum has been used to produce a myriad of derivative materials that play critical roles in the world economy, such as plastics, solvents, and lubricants.

Almost all hydrocarbons occur naturally in crude oils, like petroleum and natural gas. Since crude oil is made of decomposed organic matter, it is abundant in hydrogen and carbon atoms. They are also present in different trees and plants, and form a natural pigment called carotene, that can be found in carrots and green leaves. The majority of natural crude rubber, 98%, is made of a hydrocarbon polymer; this is formed when a chainlike, molecule forms, consisting of many units linked together.

The strongest attribute of nanoMAXX is its appetite to consume hydrocarbons. Perhaps emulsify is a better word. To get a better understanding of just how potent it is, take a clear jar and fill it halfway with water. Pour about an inch or two of oil on top of the water. It will float on the surface, like a dark topping. Then take a beaker of nanoMAXX, pour it into the jar and swish is around with a stick or paddle. You’ll notice that the dark oil completely disappears. It has become totally emulsified into a milkish soup. The oil smell will also be gone. And it happens in a manner of seconds.

nanoMAXX solubilizes, emulsifies and separates the hydrocarbons into exceptionally tiny nano-emulsions, while surrounding them with the water-based solution. This has the effect of rendering volatile hydrocarbons non-flammable, while at the same time greatly stimulating bioremediation of the hydrocarbon by increasing the end chain exposure created by the nano-emulsions.

So, nanoMAXX loves to break down oily substances, and since oily binders are what cause an increase in dirty carpets as soils stick to the oily binder, now you have a very green solution to remove these oily binders and get a satisfying and healthy clean. nanoMAXX is revolutionary in the way and speed it cleans, especially considering that it’s made from plants.


What is Colloidal Chemistry and how can it help me clean better?

Basically, colloidal chemistry is the science which converts elements into particles, so minute, that living plant cells can utilize them as an energy source, living cells emit electro-magnetic waves and the more waves the healthier the cell. These waves, the result of the phenomenon of electro-magnetic emission, are referred to as biophotons, making nanoMAXX safe for plants, so it can be used in pressure washing and outdoor cleaning activities such as homes, glass and even many car wheels.

The heart of this new chemistry is the technology used to create a “colloidal micelle.” This micelle is about the size of 10-20 hydrogen atoms, or one nanometer. Sub-microscopic particles are created in a microscopic field similar to a magnetic field. This chemistry has made possible the development and emergence of a variety of organic products, and is one of the 21st Century’s most promising advances in environmental and cleaning sciences.

In the realm below 50 nanometers, the normal laws of physics no longer apply and we enter the world of quantum physics, where materials take on surprising new properties. Colors and physical appearance may change and some solid objects can even become invisible.

In the case of nanoMAXX, micelles are created as a result of a process in which natural ingredients, including corn & palm oil, fatty acids, organic alcohol and amino acids, all extracts of natural plants which qualify as FDA approved food stocks and food additives, are blended at specific time intervals, temperatures and sequences, which causes them to become transformed into new particles, which are described as “colloidal micelles.”

The major departure from traditional and conventional chemistry can be observed in the molecular reaction between the poles, for no longer does the normal attraction exist between positive and negative. Rather, it is between like poles. In other words, negative attracts negative and positive attracts positive. The micelle has a hydrophilic (water seeking) pole and a hydrophobic (water repelling) pole. The hydrophobic poles attract each other, thus forming the interior of the micelle. The hydrophilic poles form a tough outer surface. When a micelle comes in contact with a hydrocarbon molecule, the center of the micelle bonds to a similar hydrophobic hydrocarbon. The result is a disruption in the attraction to the other hydrocarbon molecules and/or to the surface.

This action of a single micelle is multiplied by billions of other micelles, resulting in a process by which the molecules emulsify, which allows them to penetrate highly viscous and sticky materials, lifting them from the surface to which they are adhered. These nano-sized emulsions offer inherent advantages over conventional chemicals in reduced application rate, more rapid and reliable activation and extended long-term affect. nanoMAXX will change the way you think about green cleaning. It is safe its is powerful and it saves time.


7 Ways Low Moisture Methods & Encapsulation Can Help Our Environment

Less Water Consumption Encapsulation uses less water. Typically, each gallon of water will clean about 300 to 400 square feet of carpet. This reduces the overall water required to clean carpet.

Lower Moisture in the building. Less water applied to the carpet using low moisture methods allows for faster drying. Faster drying equates to less chance of bacterial action occurring with long “wet times” that can occur with hot water extraction if used improperly. Plus, the carpet is drier faster using encapsulation detergents with low moisture methods from Bonnet Pro, so you have less disruption to the building being cleaned. Read more


Are you using encapsulation technology properly?

So, let’s remember that encapsulation is the way a chemistry dries in our application. It is not a method but can be used with all methods like hot water extraction and all forms of low moisture cleaning for carpet and upholstery, with excellent results. May have falsely taught that encaps can be used for any and all machines and be effective, but this is not always true. Here is why. In the picture below you see a carpet filament between my fingers and it is small, very small.

I love it when a plan comes together

“I love it when a plan comes together”

What is your business plan? They say readers are leaders. How many business books have you read this year? This may sting a little and it is true in part for me also, but are you a technician or a businessman/woman? We can be great cleaning techs or encapsulation carpet cleaning detergent product designers, but are we great business people? What is the difference?

Techs clean well, business people make money. I just started another book The 1-Page Marketing Plan by Allen Dib. I’m not endorsing it yet, as I have just started it, but I do need to continue to learn about how to market my carpet cleaning products.

My favorite book was Branding 101 by Trump University, mostly written by Donald Sexton. If you’re new and still creating your foundation, your message, and your brand – it is an excellent book. You will walk away excited about your business. I did. Many of the slogans Bonnet Pro uses came from that book.

So, are you a tech or a businessperson? What will YOU do this year to be BOTH???
