Genesis 950 FAQ
1. What Is Genesis 950?
Genesis 950 is a surfactant based cleaner. This type of cleaner works with water to break the bonds of stains and lift them from the surface. It does so without any harsh chemicals making it a green, safe alternative to traditional household cleaners.Genesis 950 was developed over twenty years ago as a safe, green cleaner used in industrial press rooms to clean ink from equipment, flooring, clothing and rags. Over time, the press men were taking Genesis 950 home to clean things in their home and garage. They found that if it could safely clean industrial ink, then it should clean just about everything else. And it does! As the Genesis 950 began disappearing from the press rooms, the companies using it asked that it be made available to their employees so they could purchase it rather then take it from the press rooms. Genesis 950 was put online and has since blossomed into the best kept cleaning secret online. Now, thousands of customers have used it to remove pet stains, clean carpets, degrease engines, restore furniture, powerwash siding, clean flood and fire damage and so much more.
2. Does Genesis 950 Work?
Yes! Genesis 950 works better then other cleaners. It is the best way to remove pet stains and odors, to clean carpets, and for household cleaning. This can best be seen by reading reviews done on Genesis 950. These reviews were done by various bloggers. They were not paid to review the product, they are not affiliated with Genesis 950 and they were not given instruction on what to clean. They were simply sent the product and cleaned whatever they felt needed cleaning.
Here are the reviews of Genesis 950 published online:

3. Will Genesis 950 Remove Pet Stains And Odors?
Yes! Because Genesis 950 is a surfactant cleaner, mixing it with water activates it so that the stain can absorb the mixture of 950 and water. This absorption makes the stain water soluble. Once a stain has become water soluble, it can then be broken down. After the stain has been broken down, it can then rinsed clean from the area. In addition to removing the stain, Genesis 950 also removes the odor. It will kill any bacteria that has resulted from the stain. By killing the bacteria, it removes the odor. Other cleaners might contain chemicals which can discolor your carpet, cause illness to your pet or briefly mask the odor for a short period of time.
4. Is Genesis 950 Safe?
Yes! Genesis 950 is a green, environmentally friendly product. It will not cause harm to you, your family, your pets or the surface you are cleaning. There are several federally regulated lists of hazardous chemicals. Genesis 950 does not contain any hazardous chemicals on the list. It also has an extremely low VOC level – even in concentrate form. Most cleaners sold contain up to 90% water. This is because the chemical content is so high that they can not be sold as a concentrate and the only way they can be sold is by watering it down to reduce the chemical content.

8. Why Is Genesis 950 Not Sold In Stores?
Genesis 950 is not available in stores for a number of reasons. The primary reason is the nature of our company, Amerikal
. Amerikal Products
is one of the largest companies involved in the printing industry. Amerikal manufactures sustainable solutions for the printing industry. This includes chemistry used in printing packaging for food, pharmaceuticals and other consumable and non-consumable products. Chances are if you have any type of food product in your home, Amerikal had something to do with the chemistry used to package it. Whether it be in the design of the printing press, ensuring that the package was free of any toxins or chemicals used in the printing of the box or container. As a key player in this market, contributing to Fortune 500 companies, Amerikal had not been involved in retail sales. Our primary role is in the printing area, not consumer retail. But there are many other reasons Genesis 950 is not available in retail stores. Too often in retail stores, employees provide incorrect information on a product. With Genesis 950, it is very important water is used to activate the 950. If associates at stores were not there to explain this and the product was not used correctly, it would not work. We want to make sure that customers use the product correctly. We are also available to help customers use the product. Various stains call for different mixing ratios and treatment. We want customers to know they can reach us and we can help them use the product. Cost is another factor. If Genesis 950 were available in retail stores, there would be unnecessary markup on the product.
9. Does Genesis 950 Have Any Money Back Guarantees?
No. Genesis 950 does not have any such guarantee. The reason for this is because we do not know the nature of what a customer might be cleaning. There are some other products available which can actually lock stains into the carpet. If such a product was used in the past, and it has locked the stain in, Genesis 950 can not reverse or be held accountable for damage done by the other product. Likewise, other products can also discolor or damage surfaces. Again, Genesis 950 can not restore damage done from another cleaning product. If something was used that discolored, rather then stained a surface, Genesis 950 can not restore the color. There is a huge difference between a stain and discoloration, and Genesis 95 can not repair the latter. Genesis 950 does work, and we will stand behind that. In the event, it is not working as expected, call us directly at 847-244-3600 and we will offer alternative directions that will help to remove the stain in question. The directions on the website are general directions and variations are available for tougher stains. We have had over 10,000 orders and are always able to ensure customers are happy, satisfied and pleased with the results. We work with customers! We would NEVER neglect a customer with questions or concerns.
10. How Much Genesis 950 Should I Order?
This is probably one of the most asked questions. Typically, we suggest that people first try a quart to ensure they like the product. While the pint is the least expensive size, the quart is twice as much for only a few dollars more. Economically, the quart is a better value. Generally, people who do try the quart end up ordering the gallon afterwards as they are satisfied with the results. When steam cleaning a room, the gallon is the recommended size. If steam cleaning an entire home or a very large room, the 2.5 gallon cube is the best choice. The 5 gallon cube is best for commercial cleaners, janitorial services, car detailers, restoration services, hotels, resorts and other services which do heavy cleaning. There are also 30 and 55 gallon drums available in the event more is needed.
If you are a frugal consumer, the pricing of Genesis 950 is extremely consumer friendly when broken down. With the mixing ratio for general cleaning at 1/3 part Genesis 950 to 2/3 parts water, a 1 quart bottle at $23.75 (our direct store price) really equals 3 quarts of cleaning solution. This breaks down to $3.40 per bottle. A gallon container costs $42.00 (our direct store price) breaks down to 4 quarts. This runs the cost per quart at $10.50. Further breaking it down for basic cleaning, that’s 28 quarts of cleaning solution when mixed at the basic 1:7 ratio. A frugal shopper will note that this in turn results in the broken down cost at $1.50 per quart. The gallon on the store even includes a free spray bottle so that the consumer can actually break down the concentrate by mixing it with water in the spray bottle. The savings are even greater when the 2.5 or 5 gallon cubes are broken down.
11. What Will Genesis 950 Clean?
Genesis 950 can be used to remove any water soluble stain. It will clean pet stains, carpeting, grease, oil, tar, food, pasta, wine, kool-aid, play dough, make up, ink, dye, wax and so much more. We are always hearing new and exciting stains that have been removed by customers. Genesis 950 can be used on virtually any surface. Carpet, clothing, upholstery, furniture, tile, concrete, linoleum, asphalt, aluminum, stainless steel, fiberglass, finished and painted wood, walls, stone, leather, microfiber and more. The only surface that it is not advisable to use Genesis 950 on is untreated or unfinished wood. This is because the wood will absorb the moisture and it may cause warping or expansion.

14. What Are Customers Saying?
“I have mixed it 50/50 in a spray bottle and have found it works better than anything else I have tried on the following:
1. My outside grill. It cleaned baked on grease almost as well as oven cleaner without the toxic fumes and mess.
2. Pet stains went away completely making immediate machine cleaning unnecessary. I couldn’t believe how well this works. While it may not be economical to use a 50/50 mixture on all my carpets, spotting with genesis 950 makes it economical to use virtually any cleaning solution.
3. Spot cleaning my outdoor furniture where my dogs jump after they have gotten muddy.
4. My stainless steal hood over my range. This gets gritty from grease and Genesis 950 really works better on this than stainless cleaner.
In general, I am sold on Genesis 950 and anyone with a pet needs to use it.” – Tom
“Your product is AMAZING!!! I bought a 1 gallon container and took it to my daughters house to help her clean her “room of shame”. Dog stains everywhere and nicotine on the walls. Her kitchen was badly greased and nicotine on the white cupboards. Used Genesis 950 with a commercial carpet shampooer and was floored as to how well the carpets were cleaned.” – Jennifer
“Omg!!!! This formula saved us from having to replace the carpet!! Pure awesomeness!!! Thank you!!” – Christy
“I have finally found my miracle! I have 7 dogs I have rescued throughout the past few years and the pet smell has been a huge issue. A couple of them have had accidents due to issues they have so the odor has been a battle. It was to the point that when we walked in the door there was NO doubt that we had pets.
I was skeptical because I have tried soooooo many products that promised they could combat the odor. ummmm…Not so much. Genesis 950 delivered on what they said. After thoroughly shampooing my carpet with it, I can come into my house and would never know there were 7 dogs running around. THERE IS NO MORE ODOR! You have no idea how happy I am. I have gone through this for years. I wish I had found you sooner. I now feel comfortable laying down on my carpet to play with my pets and not wonder what I’m laying on. You have gained a loyal customer for life. I only ordered the gallon size just to see if it would work. My next purchase will be the 5 gallon. I am never going to be without it again. THANK YOU!” – Liz
“I can not BELIEVE this product It is by far the best carpet cleaner I have ever used …it got out pet stains that I thought would never come out…I.m just ecstatic about how good this stuff is….thank you thank you thank you.

“I’m AMAZED!!!! I got my gallon and spray bottle yesterday, so before bed I tested out the Genesis 950 using the Rug Dr machine on my bedroom carpet because my bedroom carpet was (note: was) SO stained and smell
y from my puppy peeing (she has kidney disease so she always has to go….we now take her out to pee every half hour!!) the smell has literally kept me up night after night and I’ve even sle…pt out on the couch because of it and I’ve been panicking because I don’t want friends and family visiting with the way the carpets are and I’ve tried everything! So, I did just the bedroom last night, it’s dry this morning…no smell and no stains and it looks brand new again. You guys really have no idea how much this has helped my husband and I!
