Whether you need carpet cleaning equipment to maintain your office or portable carpet extractors as part of your carpet cleaning business, learning industry terminology will enable you to pick the right units for the job. The knowledge of terms like “truck mount,” “jetless extraction” and “rotary vacuum heads” will ensure that you get the right carpet cleaning equipment for your desired application. It can also help you get the proper replacement parts and maintenance when carpet extractors need a tune up down the road.
When you need carpet cleaning equipment that produces results with minimal drying time, consider jetless extraction units. These carpet cleaners spray solution onto the fibers and extract it immediately to keep the carpet backing from becoming saturated.
Rotary vacuum heads
For ease of operation, look for a portable carpet cleaner that you can operate like an upright vacuum. Units with rotary vacuum heads operating on high-torque motors clean fibers from multiple directions to reduce the time you spend passing the unit over your flooring.
Multi-surface floor cleaning system
Using a rotary system with vacuum power, the multi-surface floor cleaning system can clean carpet and hardwood flooring, along with upholstery and additional surfaces with attachments.
For additional heat or vacuum power, consider a truck mount carpet cleaning system. Choose from slide-in truck mounts that can fit in many vehicles and don't draw power from the vehicle or van-powered truck mounts that rely on the truck's engine.
Rescue Pump Box
A Rescue Pump Box is used in the event of a water pump malfunction to reduce downtime and avert emergencies on the job. Use the self-contained system with your existing carpet cleaning extractor until you can repair your portable or truck mount water pump.
If you or your customers are looking for an eco-friendly solution to traditional carpet cleaning formulas, look for green products to use with carpet cleaning equipment. Products that the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has deemed DFE Certified use environmentally friendly ingredients and formulations.
