|20130067683||VACUUM PATHWAY IN A CLEANING DEVICE - A cleaning apparatus is disclosed for extracting a liquid from a surface. The apparatus includes at least one extraction head that has at least one aperture that is facing the surface to be cleaned. The vacuum cleaner includes a vacuum pathway situated between the at least one extraction head and a riser that is connected to a vacuum motor. The internal surfaces of the vacuum pathway are smooth and the vacuum pathway has certain dimensions and orientations that optimize the extraction of a liquid from a surface.||03-21-2013|
|20120328783||APPARATUS AND METHOD FOR WOOD FINISHING SHEETS - An apparatus and method for wood finishing sheets is provided. The apparatus includes a plurality of absorbent sheets in close proximity to each other within a container, and a wood finishing composition being evenly permeated throughout the plurality of absorbent sheets. The wood finishing composition may be one of stain, colored finish, clear coat, and/or wood sealant and may further include an extender chemical. The method includes preparing wood finishing sheets, by placing a plurality of absorbent sheets in close proximity to each other in a container, adding a wood finishing composition to the plurality of absorbent sheets, enclosing within the container the sheets and the wood finishing composition using a sealing mechanism, and allowing time for the wood finishing composition to permeate the sheets.||12-27-2012|
|20120067503||FLEXIBLE TRANSLUCENT COLOR MATCHING APPARATUS - An apparatus, system, and method are disclosed for selecting a finish for applying to an item. The apparatus includes a flexible translucent sheet, and at least one semi-translucent color applied to the translucent sheet such that a surface to which the translucent sheet is attached is visible through the translucent sheet and the semi-translucent color. The system includes the apparatus and a protective laminate surface covering the at least one semi-translucent color. The method includes providing a plurality of translucent sheets each having at least one semi-translucent color, examining an item to determine the type of finish of the item, selecting a flexible translucent sheet according to the finish of the item, conforming and affixing the selected translucent sheet to the surface of the item, and viewing the surface of the item through the selected translucent sheet.||03-22-2012|
|20120023698||ROTARY HEAD CLEANER - An apparatus is disclosed for a rotary head cleaner. The apparatus includes a plurality of liquid extraction devices positioned radially on a floor-facing surface of a rotary head, a driveshaft disposed between a rotary motor configured to rotate the rotary head, and a housing disposed between the rotary motor and the rotary head for supporting a wheel, and a handle. The apparatus also includes an evacuation tank having a capacity sensor in communication with an evacuation pump, the capacity sensor configured to detect when a maximum desired capacity of evacuated liquids is reached, a vacuum motor connected with the housing and configured to provide a suction force to the liquid extraction devices to extract liquid from a floor to the evacuation tank, and wherein a weight of the rotary motor, housing, handle, retractable wheel, and vacuum motor is supported by the liquid extraction devices.||02-02-2012|
|20090156723||SEALER COMPOSITION - A composition for sealing exposed wood before finishing the wood, which composition includes polymer solids and an acid neutralizing agent. The acid neutralizing agent may be a weak base and/or a buffering agent. The polymer solids may include acrylate monomers, urethane monomers, and the like. Also disclosed is a method of sealing and neutralizing a wood surface before finishing the wood surface by applying the composition to the exposed wood surface.||06-18-2009|
