About Us

Hi, I’m Steve Smith, founder of The Cleaner Image & VacAway Encapsulation Carpet Cleaning Products.

I was a carpet cleaner for over twenty years. During that time I bought dozens of professional products that promised better cleaning, better stain removal, and no sticky residue.

Most of those products failed miserably

They did not live up to their promises and were a complete waste of time & money; it frustrated me so much that I decided to do something about it!

To make a long story short…

In early 2004, I hired a brilliant retired chemist to help me formulate several new products utilizing a little known SUPER BRITTLE drying polymer from another industry.

Most of these products crystallize upon drying.  The dirt, detergent residues from previous cleanings, soda spills, etc., become trapped (encapsulated) inside the dried crystals.  They can then be easily vacuumed away during routine vacuuming.

Extensive testing has shown that these products out-perform all competitive ones and do not leave a sticky, dirt-attracting residue!

We were even able to produce a non-sticky citrus gel “Hel-Gel ORANGE” that crystallizes and a paint, ink, and grease remover “PIG Out” that doesn’t need to be rinsed or followed behind with a volatile dry solvent.

Such products were previously unheard of and even thought to be impossible to make.  We figured out how to make it possible and their performances are exceptional!

So, what is the bottom line?

Wouldn’t you like to use professional cleaning products that are more effective, live up to their promises and just plain work better?

The bottom line is, with VacAway Products, you can become more profitable, with less work while effectively removing more soil and stains than ever before!

You can become a hero in your customer’s eyes. Their carpets will stay cleaner, longer and dry quickly. They will be inclined to refer your company to their friends and business acquanitances and will ALLOW ONLY YOU to maintain their carpets.
