There has never been one method or cleaning machine available that would clean the vast array of carpets and upholstery fabrics available today. Most companies have and continue to purchase multiple pieces of expensive equipment to enable them to change their cleaning methods to suit the job at hand. This was also the case with Texatherm operatives who still needed hot water extraction machines to clean upholstery and deal with certain types of carpet cleaning jobs, for e.g. restorative cleaning of extremely soiled carpets within pubs, hotels and nursing homes etc.
After listening and taking on board feedback from our clients it became clear that they loved our Texatherm system but still had to set up other machinery when on jobs that encompassed carpet, upholstery and possibly hard floor cleaning. We surveyed our clients and the one constant was that they would like to be able to set up one machine that could adapt, combine and deliver different cleaning methods.
Our company’s next natural progression was to produce such a machine and five years of development started with the end result being the EMV201. Through our clients and our own experience we recognised that something quite unique and special had to be designed if we were to achieve our objectives, we also recognised that we did not have all the skills in house to design such a unit and cure all the industry wide faults. We systematically went about scrutinising every individual component in an extraction machine followed by detailed consultations enlisting the help of engineers from relevant supplying industries. This gave us an understanding of why machines were currently unreliable with short life spans on critical systems. We then set about individually designing each weakness out of our design. This was achieved by commissioning specialists in each field and developing new control systems whilst stipulating that our suppliers deliver to our design specifications and not theirs.
