    Good Wednesday, this is J.P. from Procyon, and this is Valentine's week 2021. Reminder that sharing is caring. So if you've got neighbors, family or friends that have spots and I know all of us do, don't forget to hit them up with a little bit of your spot and stain remover or other Procyon products. It's the healthiest and most loving thing you can do for your friends and neighbors and family. Toward that end, I want to share with you that I had a neighbor recently that was giving away a chair posted on Facebook that the chair was to give away, just had a brown spot on the back.


    It's a lovely light green chair, pretty high quality. And I said, hey, we'll take it. And I felt a little guilty because I came home and I cleaned it up and I sent them a picture and gave them the option to take it back. And guess what? They were very grateful and said, yeah, we'd love it back. So let me tell you what I did. Normally, I would use our spot and stain remover to pre spray and let it dwell.


    Remember, dwelling is always important for 10 minutes, maybe even 15, if it's a terrible spot and light agitation, remember agitation is like when you scrub your head with your fingers, when you're shampooing. With upholstery, remember, you don't want to be too tough on it. You want to use a very soft brush or a soft cloth or rub it gently with your hand to agitate so you don't cause any killing or damage to the fabric or the pile of the fabric.


    So in this particular case, instead of using spot and stain remover, I took some of our Plus Powder, which is typically used by our cleaning professionals, our dedicated cleaning professionals that have truck mounted high heat systems. But I just took a teaspoon of the powder and I mixed it in eight ounces, actually 16 ounces of water and put it in a spray bottle. I sprayed gently mist into the fabric. I let it dwell for five minutes and brushed it gently and then hot water extracted it using our Hoover portable residential machine and it came out just like new.


    So we've got a very happy neighbor, I'm short a chair. It was lovely, but like I said, sharing is caring. And I hope that you find time this Valentine's Day week of 2021 to appreciate your neighbors, your friends, your family. Show them you care, show them you love them. And I want all of you to know that all of us at Procyon love and appreciate you as our customers. Have a terrific week and clean green. Take care.

    Transcript of podcast:

    This is JP from Procyon with the last Soap free podcast of 2020, thank you very much for that. So the New Year is upon us. 2021 can't come fast enough. I find myself full of gratitude for the health of my family and for all the dedicated users of Soap Free Procyon that have allowed us to survive this very difficult year in good business standing. Looking ahead, my resolutions include be more patient increasing in generosity of spirit, and continuing our founder Ivan Day's mission to improve health and the environment by increasing the usage and the awareness of our Soap Free Procyon detergent-free products.


    And ask you at this time to please consider joining us in this resolution in a simple but profound way. And that's adopting Soap Free Procyon as your main cleaning solutions. They're simpler, they're healthier, they're cost-effective. I know upfront our bottles can cost more than some of the products you buy. It doesn't cost more to be a premium provider of cleaning services for your precious customers, and when you consider the cost of one of our bottles of beautiful, soap-free product that has no residue and does not cause soiling and is healthier for everybody. Remember, often you're buying one bottle instead of two or three or four bottles, a neutralizer, a rinsing agent, a defoamer. All those things go away when you use our simple solutions. And on top of that, you and your customers are not breathing any VOCs, any sort of volatile organic chemicals, any sort of harmful odors, fragrances or chemicals that you can't perceive.


    Super-important. It's super easy and your clients might be more interested in that than you're aware. So please give it a shot. It means something to offer a premium product. You can charge a little more and your clients will be happy to pay for something that you know and they know is better for them. Want to offer you one of my favorite quotes: "whatever you can do or dream you can do, begin it. Boldness has genius, power and magic in it. Begin it now."


    I think that's a great thought as we're coming into a new year, which I'm sure is going to be brighter for all of us. So from all of us at Soap Free Procyon, we wish you a happy, successful and most of all, a healthy New Year. Thank you. God bless you. And I'll see you next year.

    Soap Free Podcast December 2, 2020 - A special holiday message from Soap Free Procyon

    Visit us at https://soapfreeprocyon.com/



    Hey, thanks for joining me today, it's JP from Procyon with another soap free podcast. Well, we all survived Thanksgiving. I hope you had a healthy and enjoyable one during this very strange pandemic year. And now we're heading toward Christmas and it's it's giving season. So my mind is very much on the joys of giving. I'd like to share with you today some great quotes about exactly that and then tell you a quick story. But I know I get the most out of this season each year.


    Instead of just focusing on things I might like, it's become much more important to me to think about what I can give. So here's just a few great quotes I just love. No one has ever become poorer from by giving from Anne Frank. And we all know what she gave. Remember that the happiest people are not those getting more, but those giving more. That's Jackson Browne, Jr.. Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a great deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give Eleanor Roosevelt.


    We must give more in order to get more. It's the generous giving of ourselves that produces the generous harvest for us and Martin. We make a living by what we get. We make a life by what we give. Winston Churchill, No one is useless in this world who lightens the burdens of another. Charles Dickens, a seasonal Ford, is in giving that we receive St Francis of Assisi. It is every man's obligation to put back into the world at least the equivalent of what he takes out of it.


    The meaning of life is to find your gift, the purpose of life is to give it away. So the best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others. And those who are happiest are those who do the most for others. Booker T. Washington. So in that vein, a wonderful opportunity came my way this week through the misfortune of a friend, Brian, who is my dear friend and father of a one of my son's classmates in high school.


    And I started a carpet cleaning company well over a decade ago. Brian still runs the company full time and does an amazing and reputable job in our region. So Brian's also an avid mountain trail runner. I've been holding my breath for most of that decade, hoping he didn't get injured in this past weekend. Lo and behold, he took a fall and ended up breaking his left wrist. So when we had coffee on Monday morning to discuss the season and just catch up, I offered that if you found he needed help, I could change my schedule around and help them with jobs this week.


    And he, in fact, called upon me yesterday. So I have the privilege and the opportunity to do the noble work of some commercial carpet cleaning on Friday, hoping to have a little video from that to share with you online, because we will be using encapsulation cleaning methods, using Rotary for machine. But more importantly, it's just such a great thing for me to have the opportunity to help a dear friend. And that is just right in my wheelhouse and exactly how I want my holiday season to unfold.


    So I just wanted to share that with you. Put the thought of giving in your mind. It's often said that, you know, a shared misery is half a misery. So let's be out there. All of us. I encourage you finding opportunities to help those we know and those we don't know during these very difficult times and to make the most of this holiday season. I'm going to leave you with one more quote from William Penn. He said, I expect to pass through life, but once if there be any kindness I can show or any good thing I can do to any fellow human being, let me do it now and not defer or neglect it, as I shall not pass this way again.


    With that, I wish all of you a wonderful, bright and giving holiday season.

    Soap Free Podcast November 11, 2020 - Encap, or encapsulation cleaning provides amazing benefits

    Soap Free Podcast November 11, 2020 - Encap, or encapsulation cleaning provides amazing benefits

    Check out the best soap free, green cleaning products at https://soapfreeprocyon.com


    This is JP from Procyon, and today I've got a quick hit for our professional cleaners out there, but I think it'll also be of great interest to our consumer household users as well. Some of you may have heard of or actually may use encapsulation cleaning. Now, it's also referred to as encap or encapping. That's ENCAP. And although it's misunderstood, the cleaning system has gained tremendous popularity in recent years. It's actually been around since the late nineteen nineties or early 2000s.


    The method often uses similar equipment as the shampooing method. You know, I hate that terminology shampooing because it makes us think of soaps and suds and that is not Procyon. But for that reason, many have confused and dismissed this method of encapping. But it's a very new, revolutionary type of chemistry that makes it very effective. And I think you're going to find interesting. And for our professionals, you may add this to your tool kit and make your business even more profitable, less equipment, shorter time, highly effective.


    So more profit for you. So the encapsulation cleaning system applies a cleaning solution often, unfortunately, containing crystalizing acrylic polymers. Now, the last thing we need is more plastic in the environment. Right. So I hate that acrylic polymer, but we approach on offer you a solution. Our Extreme Pre-Spray is certified as being effective for encapsulation cleaning, so you should use it. At least try it out, because I think we're going to prove to you it should be your encap method.


    And if you're not already encap cleaning, this is a simple way. Again, to add a new service for your clients that can be very cost effective for both of you. So what happens is the encapsulation formula contains surfactants and for Procyon and it oversimplifies it. But just think of it as sodium, salt, much like seawater. So there's a few other ingredients in the aid in breaking down the bond between grease and grime and carpet fibers, so encapsulation machines are typically rotary agitation machines.


    Some of the famous names are, Cimex. Well, that is the biggest name right now, but they're basically rotary brushes. In the simplest form. What you use is a rotary floor machine. That's what you see, people moving around, polishing floors, hard surfaces and carpets. So as a professional, what you're going to do is take a mop bucket and a loopi cotton bonnet, mix our Extreme Procyon Pre -Spray in the suggested amounts into that mop bucket.


    You're going to put your bonnet right in there and then wring it out, put it on the floor, put your floor machine on it and start cleaning the carpet. Now it's going to polish and clean and break down the greasy, grimy dirt. There's no rinsing involved because we do not leave any residue. The bonnet is going to get filthy. So you have a big job. You're going to want to take a dozen or 20 bonnets with you, but flip it over when one side gets dirty and it's going to get black with dirt.


    But here's the amazing thing. There's no rinsing required. What's going to happen is that the salts and cleaning factors in our Extreme or other encap products, I really want you to try the Extreme. It will crystallize around that dirt, whatever is remaining in the carpet. So the carpet is going to appear really clean. There's still going to be some crystallised dirt in there, but that crystallized dirt is going to be dry and it's going to vacuum right out.


    And then what's going to happen is the carpet is going to stay cleaner longer because it's not soapy, sticky. There's no residue, so new dirt does not adhere. So to recap here on the encap, you're going to use this meth

    Soap Free Podcast October 28, 2020 - Lung Health and the Tile & Grout Cleaner

    Soap Free Podcast October 28, 2020 - Lung Health and the Tile & Grout Cleaner

    Learn more about us at https://soapfreeprocyon.com/.


    This is JP from Procyon with another soap free podcast, thanks for joining me this last week of October 2020. It's a whole lot going on. And today I want to talk to you about the health of your lungs. Let's all just take a nice deep breath in and out. No, I'm not meditating, although not a bad idea considering the pandemic. We're all a little nervous about the elections, et cetera. But it's fall. And there's not just spring cleaning, there's fall cleaning.


    And I would like to suggest to you that you do it in a way that is healthy for your lungs because lung health is paramount right now during this pandemic. The product I want to talk to you about is our tile and grout cleaner, you know, if you're like me, I try to do a good job keeping up with my shower and tile floor cleaning, but I can slip a little bit and once in a while, it's time for that thorough cleaning.


    Now, many of you may reach for trusted solutions such as CLR. Or, for example, Clorox products now perhaps you have used these in the past, you know, from your experience, if you spray these on, you better have a gas mask on or hold your breath, because these are caustic substances that will burn your lungs and your eyes. I mean, even if it feels like it's not permanent, it can't be good for you. You know that from the first time you smell it and breathe it, it'll make you cough, it'll make you wheeze, it'll make your eyes burn in water.


    Not good for you. Now the contrast our Soap Free Procyon tile and grout cleaner. I'm shaking the bottle right now. There's no suds. There's no VOC's. It's incredibly effective. And you can breathe it all day long because there's nothing there to harm you. So what I want to tell you about is right on the bottle. It'll explain that for medium soil, it's four ounces to one gallon heavy soil, six ounces to one gallon extreme soil, eight ounces to one gallon.


    And once you have a clean, you can just make it daily maintenance spray of two ounces to one gallon to keep in a separate spray bottle, if you like. But all you do is spray it on, use your tile brush to give it a good scrub and rinse it off. If it's really heavy soil and you've used the right solution, give it a few minutes to dwell, three to five minutes to be more than enough. Think you're going to love the result.


    And what you're really going to love is that you're keeping your lungs healthy. Good for you, good for your family, good for the environment. Give us a try. You can find us at www.SoapFreeProcyon.com. That's Procyon p r o c y o n. Thanks for listening and have a healthy and happy day.

    Soap Free Podcast October 22, 2020 - Strategies and Tips for Professional Green Cleaners

    Learn more about us at https://soapfreeprocyon.com/.


    Good day and thanks for joining us at our Soap Free Procyon podcast. This is JP from Procyon. And today I would like to speak directly to our very valued professional cleaners throughout the country and the world. We are here to support your green and environmentally friendly cleaning business with our top rated soap and detergent free Procyon products. But here's a way that you can support yourself and make your customers really, really happy. When you have finished your wonderful job cleaning your client's home.


    Not only will they be super happy with your always wonderful result, but you can make sure that they stay happy. And here's how. Long ago, when I was starting my carpet cleaning business, Ivan Day, the founder of the company, told me that the last thing to do to complete your job is go to the sink, the kitchen sink with your client and look underneath with them and have them pull out every single bottle of rug spotter and rug cleaner it might be in their laundry room.


    But for the sake of discussion, let's just say it's under the sink. Have them pull it out. And with them, shake the bottle, let them hear that after two or three shakes, it's full of suds and explain to them that you don't want any more of this product going to their carpet because it may seem like it's helping them, but it's only hurting them because although it may appear to remove the spot, it's likely to reappear. And certainly that area, their carpet is going to be soiled much more quickly because it's going to have all of the dirt attracted to it and sticking to it because of the soap.


    Instead, you can be prepared as a thank you gift to trade your client for all those nasty bottles in exchange for you giving them a custom spot remover bottle that contains your logo. Not only is this a wonderful thank you gift, but every time they go to use it and by the way, you've cleared out a lot of clutter from their sink and cabinets. They're going to grab this bottle. They're going to use it. It's going to work.


    And they're going to be so grateful and amazed by the result. It's going to make your job easier next time because you're not going to be faced with whatever potential time bombs they've placed in the carpet with chemicals and soap and oxy and all sorts of other products. The other piece is. Every time they grab that bottle and they're full of gratitude, it's going to keep your business top of mind and top of mind. Marketing is the most effective ongoing marketing you can do.


    It's one price for you. It's giving your client a wonderful thank you and reason to be grateful for you every time they have to clean their carpet. Spotting between your cleaning's keeps your business top of mind, and they will never be without your phone number and contact information. So it's win, win, win, and it will in fact make your job easier and keep your clients that much more satisfied. If that sounds good to you and you would like to try this amazing business booster, check out SoapFreeProcyon.com.


    That's soapfreePROCYON.Com and look under the menu for custom spotters, we can get you set up with this very cost effective, wonderful marketing for your clients. Hey, thanks, as always for suffering my mistakes with the smile on your face. We are a real company coming to you with real heart, always here trying to make your business and your life better and healthier. So have a green, wonderful week and thank you for using Soap Free Procyon.
